Advantages: Gives a chiseled cheekbone look
Disadvantages: Not a makeup essential - you still need all the other bits (bronzer, foundation, blusher etc)
This product is the sister of the celebrity-endorsed High Beam. I use this in spring and summer as I have a dark tan, and this product is meant for darker skin. In winter I use High Beam as my complexion is much paler.
It comes in a bottle that looks like a chunky nail polish bottle, and its applicator is a brush exactly like nail polish. It is quite a thick liquid, probably about the same consistency as nail polish actually. It is a pale gold colour. It says you can use it on lips or eyes for a subtle glow but the only place I use it is on my cheeks as a highlighter.
I use it after bronzer but before blusher, as I found that when you use it after blusher, because you have to blend it in with your fingers it made the blusher all claggy and clown-like. I use it by putting 3 or 4 small dots on my cheekbones and blending it along the contours. It instantly does define my cheekbones as well as making my complexion look more radiant. I can definately tell when I have forgotten to use it, so in this sense it is a good product.
I bought it for £13 from Boots, and of course you can get it from any of the many Benefit counters (in John Lewis, Boots and Debenhams to name but a few).
This also a brilliant product to use on the beach as it gives a subtle, polished look even when you have no other makeup at all on. It is more noticeable the less base makeup you use. It gives a fabulous holiday glow and is one of my staple holiday makeup items.
You use such a tiny amount that a bottle will last for months and I think this product is worth purchasing because it is very good.
Summary: Worth buying, it's great!
