Get the glow with Benefit


Everyone wants that summer glow, with radiant healthy looking skin.

There are different formulas available for highlighters including powder, liquid and cream. These are two of the Benefit highlighters that I have been using, one of which is a liquid and the other a cream and I absolutely LOVE them !

High Beam

High Beam is a liquid highlighter, it can be applied to the cheekbones, bridge of the nose as well as enhancing your best features. This is applied by dotting the product on the desired area in a line, then blending it out using a brush, sponge or your fingers. It leaves a dewy light pink finish and adds dimension to the face. A small amount is needed during each application, so this lasts a very long time.

The packaging is simple and pretty, with bold writing and a clear bottle through which the pink shimmery highlighter can be seen. At first I used to use only powder highlighters, because of the easy application and pigmentation. However these Benefit products have completely changed that, this is long-wearing and the application process is just as simple. The consistency makes it easy to blend, and it isn’t runny. The pigmentation is lovely, but not too overpowering, it leaves a healthy looking glow not too shiny or glittery.

Overall I think this is a must have, both for summer and winter. It makes the skin look healthy and enhances your best features.

Watt’s Up Highlighter

This is the smaller sized version of the Watt’s Up highlighter, first of all how witty is this name? I love the concept of using the light bulb as a theme for the highlighter. This product has a gorgeous creamy consistency and glides onto the skin effortlessly. It is very pigmented, and it leaves a white dewy finish. The packaging, like all other Benefit products is simple and sophisticated, shiny purple with pictures of light bulbs linked to the theme. I would suggest blending this lightly, after application, as I think whilst blending, it fades easily. I think this is a highlighter that can be used during the winter, because of its creamy white application. It is subtle on the skin compared to High Beam which makes it perfect for any occasion as it looks natural.

I think that this is a great product for everyday use, it leaves a natural finish and is also subtle. I will definitely be purchasing the full sized version !

These products can be purchased at ASOS, Debenhams, Feel Unique and Boots !
