Benefit High Beam
Advantages: Lovely subtle shimmering glow, soft texture
Disadvantages: Pricey but you get what you pay for
A lot of my friends talk about benefit products but they are always out of my price range and I was always scared to pay so much for a product in case I hated it and I would be gutted I had just wasted the money. I had always wanted to try some benefit goods so when I saw a website offering free samples of benefit high beam I filled out my address and waited and waited but I never received any so once again I didn't bother buying any. A few weeks after, I seen that glamour magazine had benefit products in in a trial size as part of their promotion so I bought a mag and finally had my high beam to try. After trying it I can now see why people would spend the money to buy this item and I have purchased a full size one myself.
The product comes in a clear bottle which displays the word high beam on and you can see the pink luminescent liquid through it. The lid is white and colour and can be twisted to release. Once twisted you will see that the lid holds a brush which is also white and looks very much like a nail varnish brush.The product looks rather nice and it does stand out on a shelf.
Benefit high beam promises to create a natural radiant glow with its satiny pink highlighter it creates a young fresh complexion on all skin tones and it also advises that no self-respecting make-up artist would be seen without one. This product can be used as a spot highlighter or mixed with your favourite moisturiser for an all over glow.
You use this product by applying a smudge on each cheek bone and brow and rubbing it in to create a highlighted look; alternatively you can put some on the back of your hand and mix with moisturiser to illuminate the face. This is a good product as it does exactly what it says and really brightens the face area adding a lovely fresh glow to tired skin. It works great on combination skin too. Only a small amount is needed to create a luminous glittering effect on the face which is subtle yet noticeable.
I would definitely recommend this product as a treat for yourself for £18.50.
Summary: A lovely highlighter that works well
