This pink liquid highlighter accents cheek & brow bones for a radiant glow. Use as a spot highlighter or delicately blend all over your complexion.
-- Packaging --
I have really noticed how far Benefit go to make there products stand out and I can honestly say that they always have grabbed my attention. This little beauty came presented wonderfully. The highlighter comes in a glass long clear tube with a plastic white cap, the product itself is pink which you can see through the bottle is shimmery. The packaging for this one is fairly simple but very effective. It comes contained in a pink square cardboard box with bold writing on the front stating the name of the product and directions and it's uses on the back. I would say that I am a girly girl so anything pink grabs my attention! The packaging is elegant and very delightful.
-- Price --
As I am a student, I only have time for a part time job which of course means I don't have a great deal of money. I would say for me this is quite expensive being £18.50, although it is expensive I can see this product lasting me a very long time as a little goes a long way. The quality of the product is also very high and so it is worth the extra pennies.
-- Application --
You can apply this product many ways. I use it various different ways depending on my mood, how much time I have and whether I am applying a full face of make-up or not. On a day where I am applying a full face of make-up I will apply this after applying my foundation but before applying my blusher/bronzer. I simply dot this along my cheek bones, a dot on my brow bone and a small dot above my cupids bow. I find this is really effective and really brightens your features and gives your face more definition. On a day where I am in a rush and either wearing little or no make-up I tend to mix a little bit of this with my moisturiser which is extremely effective at brightening the face and texture. I have heard many other ways of using this product, but those in particular have been the most effective for me.
-- Effect --
I found this product to be extremely effective. It brightened up my dull and tired skin and the shimmer gave my face a dewy texture and appearance which looks very flattering. It's very easy to apply and blends in wonderfully whether I'm using my mineral powder or liquid foundation. It also outlines my cheekbones adding dimension and beautiful texture to my skin. It also made my eyebrows more defined and my eyes pop!
-- Final thoughts --
I believe that this product is fantastic, the price may be expensive but as you only need to use a little of the product at a time and the quality of the product makes it worth while. I would definitely buy this again and would recommend this to anyone who feels their dull, tired skin needs awakening and a little pick me up!
Summary: Gives a gorgeous glow, brightens dull skin but is fairly expensive
