Lately I’ve been really enjoying Benefit’s liquid highlighters, Moon Beam ($24) and High Beam ($24). Have you tried these?

high beam used to be a staple for me until i got NARS multiples (copacabana, orgasm). it really is a great highlighter, with a soft focus effect.
moon beam is too yellow for me, however.

I have not tried these highlighters, as I usually prefer the stick variety – much less mess and nil product wastage!
They appear to be nice colours, though!

I had them both and really liked them. Not sure why I haven’t repurchased them or what happened to them. I think they may be in my sister’s make up stash. Some of my goodies tend to end up there. =)

I really liked Moon Beam, it worked with my skin tone and applied easily, but I don’t really like the packaging. I’m clumsy and normally after I’ve knocked something like this over once, half of the product ends up all over my bathroom counter.

I used to really like high beam too and like Ines I switched to Nars Multiple in Copacabana, I prefer the texture of this and it looks great on the eyelids too. High beam was a little too sparkly, the Nars gives a lovely less obvious glow.
Hello there! I haven’t tried either of the two since Benefit’s not available, but I do have Posie Tint, which a cousin brought me. It’s very pretty, a lovely flush of pink!

Love High Beam! A little goes a long way, I usually only use it on bigger nights out so I’ve had mine forever. I’m super fair so it works better for me than Moon Beam. Just a touch (over liquid or mineral powder foundation, works well with either) on the tops of the cheekbones and under the outer half of the eyebrow does wonders. Sometimes I even do a dab at the corners of the eyes.

hmm. I watned to try these but now I see that it’s better to try Nars multiples. I just bener used liquid or creamy highlighter. But I would stil love to read your review, Karen

I just learned of highlighters recently and haven’t tried any yet. I need to get on that wagon

I use moon beam on photo shoots all the time. The lighting will just hit it perfect and look so glowing over foundation, but under blush and bronzer. I use a foundation brush to apply it so it diffuses it just a bit! Love it!
do you have a tutorial for these? i would love to try them
