So I decided to buy this because I really needed a highlighter and I have tried the Benefit High Beam highlighter before and it was really good so I decided to get this Benefit one because I thought since it is the same brand, it will be just as good. As you can see, you twist the bottom to get the product out. There seems to be a huge quantity for the price you pay. The formula seems pretty good as you can see the glitter and the colour is neutral so it can go with any skin colour.

However, I was quite disappointed with this product. The reason being, I felt I needed to put a lot of the product before the highlighting shows and it is also not very long lasting. I just noticed that it was a primer/highlighter which I think this selling point is a big mistake because this product contains glitter and glitter makes your pores huge so you don't really want to put this all over your face and then apply foundation as it will feel to heavy on your face. I think that must be the reason why the highlighting didn't show that well.



- Size is big so will last long before you need to buy another highlighter
- Highlighter is very natural and does not enlarge your pores

- need to use a large quantity before the product shows on the face
- not very long lasting.

Results: 6/10
If you like a subtle highlighter, this is the highlighter for you but I like more noticable highlighter where you can see the shimmer so I don't think I will purchase it again after I finish this one. I recommend buying the Benefit High Beam Highlighter as you can really see it on the face and it is totally worth the price.
