Benefit Highlighter Mini-Kit Review

Highlighting and strobing are two of the hottest beauty trends right now. From doing makeup looks with only highlighters to ultra-glowing models, it looks like the shine is here to stay awhile.

I’m loving how fresh faced and glowy the right highlighters can make the face, so I bit the bullet with Benefit’s 1st Prize Highlighters Mini-Kit.
It includes Benefit’s three best selling highlighters in an adorable sampler size: high beam, sun beam, and the dandelion shy beam.

High Beam: a natural shimmery light pink
Sun Beam: a golden bronze
Dandelion Shy Beam: a matte nude pink

so shiny!

The bottles are almost like nail polish bottles; the liquid is dotted on with a small brush.

The color pay-off for all three of these is fairly sheer. The two pinks disappear easily into my skin, but the Sun Beam is a little too dark on my super-pale complexion. It would work great on light medium to darker skin tones.

VERY natural looking and so easy to blend out. The colors just twinkle like little stars when you move in the sunlight…

None of these highlighters is too glittery, making them great for everyday wear. They also last all day with no need for touch ups or re-application.

I’m very happy with these little guys. It’s about time I got my glow on! It’s made such a difference in my overall makeup routine. Now I still look fresh faced late into the afternoon 🙂

Thanks for reading you wonderful readers! Till next time 💕
