PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "if you want to bronze from within then this is the product for you ! it’s easy to apply on your face but you should blend with a beauty blender or and foundation brush all over tour face. i would recommend to others !" in 55 reviews
  • "this is probably one of my favorite highlighters! i have more of a yellowish/light tan skin tone so finding highlighters have been tricky! this one really reflects nice on my skin. i do get a dewy glow when i do apply it. i love the consistency of this highlighter because i am able to blend it into my foundation and/or concealer. it goes on easy without any of that powdery look you'd get from powdered highlighters. i love that you could wear it alone as well, with no makeup and it just gives your skin a natural looking glow. there is no need to reapply, it literally stays on all day! if you're looking to try a highlighter this is worth a try and the bottle lasts you a long time as well!" in 39 reviews
  • "This highlighter is perfect if you are trying to capture a summer glow, or if you are trying to enhance your skin tone, or the appearance of bronze/sun exposure. " in 5 reviews

It's a good product for summertime. It's a metallic gold colour, fluid in consistency leaves a moderate visible golden highlight. Just like Benefits High Beam it mimics a nail polish bottle and applies with a brush. Lasts forever! The product is versatile as you can apply it directly to the areas you want highlighted and blend with you fingertip. The product also works well when mixed in with skincare creams, moisturizers or liquid/cream foundations. Gives it that extra allover glow. Probably works best if you have some skin pigment, for pale skin-tones it would look unnatural. This product has a higher sheen than High Beam

For christmas my sister bought me a dual ended high beam and sun beam product. I love the high beam but was really skeptical about trying the sun beam. I have really dry skin so i was afraid a shimmery bronzer would make me look ridiculous. I was wrong. It is a BEAUTIFUL, subtle glowy bronzer. It's great because it doesn't make your face look dull or flat. It brightens up the face and it is PERFECT for summer/spring.

I’ve started finishing my make up look – which in the winter is really just concealer , brows and mascara- with a pop of Benefit’s Sun Beam. Sure the sun comes out every couple of days, but this product is the closest I’m going to get to sun-kissed until at least June. As I vehemently steer clear of silver tones in my make up, this golden highlighter gives my skin a shimmer more akin to a light dusting of bronzer than anything else. It’s build-able and subtle, something I like my products to be. I dot along my cheekbones, under my brows and on my cupids bow. If it’s date night, I’ll build it up on the “C’s” around the outside of my eyes, and run a little bit down my nose for definition.

I received this product from a friend of mine for my birthday and I must say, I'm starting to prefer this over high beam (a bit too shiny for me) This product gives a subtle, glowing sun kissed sheen, perfect over my NARS Laguna bronzer. I like to gently pat on the product instead of blending on my cheekbones and browbone (it disappears if I don't use this method) Great for spring and summer.

It’s so beautiful. It gives you that nice golden sun kiss highlight, somewhat of a bronzed appearance. Since it is liquid, I do use a brush and apply it little by little so I can control it rather than blooping it onto my face. It can be anywhere from sheen to a Dewey finish. Good for a no makeup makeup look too. Definitely would buy again.

If you’re looking for something quick to use when you need some highlight, this is the product for you. It’s easy to apply and fast to use too. It’s very pigmented and you don’t have to apply very might. It highlights very well. I would recommend this product to others.

If you're looking for a lovely, healthy, summery glow, look no further than this highlighter! I always look like I've just been running in the sun when I put this on, and it complements my ultra fair skin perfectly

Get that summer glow! ✨ this product can be mixed in with foundation, i find that it also works really well if you apply it under your foundation after priming. For the summer i do both! These 2 steps and then i set it with a powder highlighter at the high points of my face. This gives you such a beautiful glow 😍 all year round, even on the winter months.

Is this light enough to wear on a very (VERY) fair skin tone?
