Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter Review, Swatches and FOTD

Hello everyone,

Today I’ll be reviewing one of Benefit Cosmetic’s cult favorite products- High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter.

A makeup technique that I always wanted to learn was contouring and highlighting. While highlighting is easy to nail, I still struggle with contouring. Argghhh…
I love how a good highlighter can give you a radiant glow.
So let us get back into today’s topic and into the nitty-gritty details of Benefit High Beam face highlighter
Benefit Cosmetics says:-
Supermodel in a bottle!
Our liquid highlighter accents cheek & brow bones for a dewy glow. Use as a spot highlighter over makeup or wear under complexion products for subtle luminescence. Radiant look Long-lasting Day or night gorgeous.

So adorable. It comes in a little nail polish like bottle. It has a brush applicator, just the way nail polish bottles have. You can apply dots with the brush and then blend it with fingers, sponge or a clean brush.

Price and Availability:-
I purchased it from Sephora for INR 2100.
Available at all Sephora outlets across the country. There are hundreds of sellers on Facebook and Instagram who can arrange one for you. But beware of fake products.

Shade and Texture:-
It is a satiny champagne pink highlighter with finely milled shimmers. I am NW25 and it works well on me; whereas my cousin, who is NC42, this suits her beautifully too. The shimmers are so fine; they disappear into the skin without making you look like a disco ball. But you will definitely have to keep the quantity in mind. The texture is beautiful, non-oily. Love the soft, natural afterglow this pink shimmering lotion adds.

Pigmentation and Staying Power:-
You don't need a whole lot of this. I would recommend starting off small and adding if you need some more. The glow stays for hours; almost for the entire day.

How I use it:-
I generally use it as a spot highlighter over makeup. After foundation, using the brush I dot it on my high points and then blend with fingers. Sometimes I wear it underneath makeup for subtle luminescence as well.

Summing up my LIKES and DISLIKES:-

What I LIKE about High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter:-
  • An ethereal pink liquid highlighter
  • Gives an angelic sheen.
  • Creates a radiantly dewy complexion.
  • Soft, natural.
  • Beautiful texture.
  • Blends effortlessly.
  • Sets quickly.
  • Shimmers don’t make you look like a disco ball.
  • Small amount is needed, so one bottle will last really long.
  • The glow remains for hours and hours.
  • Works well on a varied skin tone.

What I Don’t like about High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter:-
  • Price.
  • Availability in India.

Final Thoughts:-
Benefit Cosmetics has some really nice products. I have used their BeneTint and They’re real mascara (read the review HERE) before. 

This is my first liquid highlighter and I was really excited to try this out after hearing so many great reviews. After using this for months, I can say that my money didn't go down the drain. After application you can immediately see how radiant your face looks. It keeps my skin looking fresh and dewy the whole day. Just love it. So if you are looking for a nice natural highlighter and if the price tag is not an issue, they you can definitely go for this. J
