If you really want to glow, this is your product! I've been a fan of ABH products since I was introduced to the powder contour palette a while back. Since I invested in that little gem, I was certain I'd love other ABH products and started growing my collection. Since strobing has become all the rage, I knew I had to have this beaut in my makeup bag. I was not wrong to feel that way! At $40, I was a little weary, but it is totally worth it! Break it down this way: there are four different shades in this kit, with very decent pan sizes. This is like getting four full sized highlighters at $10 a piece! Definitely worth the money and a repurchase to always have at your fingertips! I've owned the Ofra highlights, as well as a set of Jeffree Star Skin Frosts, but these are by far the best in pigment and quality. They are so wonderful that I even purchased the ABH Gleam kit as well to add more color options! The shades are very versatile, as well. If I want a beautiful, bronzed, glow, I'll dip into Golden Bronze. If I want something a little brighter to really pop and strobe, I'll dip into Sunburst. My favorite combo, though, is to lightly dust Golden Bronze over my contour, a combo of Dripping In Gold and Bubbly over my blush and then Sunbust on the high plains of my cheek bone, around the eyes, Cupid's bow, below the eyebrow, chin and ridge of my nose to glow like a goddess! ...read more

Hands down for the best highlighter I have ever used in my whole life. It's the perfect color for a highlight. Just SOOOO perfect! Just one dab on my highlight brush, and there is a pop of shimmer is absolutely there!! I have seen and heard so many good reviews on this highlighter. It's the best thing ever made that Jaclyn Hill ever did. This thing is life changing! I am very glad that Sephora made it permanent to purchase at Sephora. Before it was a limited edition. I never got my hands on it because it was always sold out and on high demand. And couple weeks ago, sephora announced that it is finally permanent. It retails for $38. $38 was a bit too much, but since this is what everyone is raving about of how good it is, I think it's worth it! The color pay off is so beautiful, I cannot stop talking about it. I tell my friends all about it and got them to purchase it as well! It's such a natural looking shade. I have light medium skin and this looked perfect on my skin tone. It stays on pretty long and the shimmer is definitely popping. It's a nice feature on my face! Congrats to Jaclyn for doing a successful collab with Becca. Such a great collab! I think you guys need to own this highlighter for sure! Try it!! ...read more

This is a newer purchase for me, in the last few months. I have a lot of highlighters but felt compelled to get this one. The colour and quality is absolutely amazing! A very light champagne golden glow that works on the fairest of skin tones! Not glittery what so ever! I am obsessed with this highlight and have it in my regular rotation of other highlighters (including Becca highlights and Anastasia Glow Kit highlights). I highly highly recommend this! Also, the price is SO good! Especially compared to Becca highlights! For those Canadian girls that want to order, use the website nailpolishcanada.com because you can get free shipping, so the highlight is only $28 plus tax, which really is a steal in the high end highlighting world. I've also seen it at Rexall stores, but didn't check the price (as usually they jack up the price). ...read more

I simply adore Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Highlighter and have actually used it for 3 years now; it's definitely charming! Just before I layer my foundation (liquid or powder), I apply this highlighter right above my eyebrows (making an arch that's slightly shorter than them), a vertical line down my nose, a dab on my cupid's bow, & a very thin circle on my chin. Once my makeup is finished, there are dewey highlights that add dimension and allure. As it's been said, a little really does go a long way so the bottle lasts a very long time. Making this product absolutely worth it! This color is meant to use all year round during the day but evening wear is okay too. There are some more tints of Benefit highlighters available as well: a yellow one called Sun Beam for a glamorous sun-kissed look (great for summer), & then, apricot Moon Beam, which is excellent for use throughout nights, cloudy days and the winter season. It's a beauty must-have! ♡ ...read more

This highlighter is soooo amazing!! First, the packaging is super cute! Some people say it looks like a deodorant but really it's just super easy to take on the go. No more broken compacts while traveling!! Next, the formula is super creamy but when it's applied to the skin, it's is not sticky or "wet" at all. Also, the color is super buildable from a super natural glow with one swipe to a "blind you with my highlight" with a few swipes. But even with a few layers, it doesn't look or feel heavy. Lastly, this thing is the definition of blend able! You can blend it super easily so application is just perfect. This is perfect for everyone because the color has a balance of cool and warm under tones so it truly looks great on all skin tones. I definitely recommend it to everyone! I love it!! ...read more

This product is a must have for that dewy summer glow. I received the Estée Edit Flash Illuminator in shade 02 Morning Light in my Influenster VoxBox and I will DEFINITELY be repurchasing.

I have been a long time lover of the Benefit Watt's Up! highlighting stick and never thought I would find something I liked more. This product changed that. I layer the Flash Illuminator over my Watt's Up! and my cheekbones have never looked better.

I simply dab a small pump of the Flash Illuminator on the top of my cheekbones, cupid's bow and tip of my nose for the most beautiful dewy glow.

It really does make your skin look dewy and healthy without looking greasy and wet. The shade 02 Morning Light is slight golden champagne color, perfect for all skin tones.My glow lasts all day!

This product does not:
-leave my skin feeling greasy
-fade throughout the day
-look glittery
-disturb my foundation once applied
