Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter Review, Swatches & Video
Friday, May 22, 2015
Benefit's Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter (that I won in a Klout Benefit #Curlfriends Contest), made me think about AND question the collection of highlighters I already own. I had to do a little research. Do I own any highlighters that are GOLD? HaHaHa I went in my makeup stash to look and the gold highlighters that I own are The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer , Tarte's Park Avenue Princess , Urban Decay Naked Flush In Streak (all are champagne gold) and MAYBE Etude House White Chocolate Highlighter from Sweet Recipe. All were given a sweet rating (UD supersweet), but I think Benefit's Sun Beam in LIQUID GOLD beats them all out! What do you think? Benefit accurately describes this as, 'liquid sunshine in a bottle' and boy does it pack a punch. This stuff illuminates your face! It gives a contouring effect. Light is in the inner portion of your face (nose eyes & cheeks) and shadows surround the light. Benefit suggests dotting/dabbing this on the apples of your cheeks and underneath your eyebrows. I found an old HSN presentation, where it was suggested over the eyebrows! So I went with that one, personally for myself. I used my Tarte Foundcealer Foundation, added Benefit's Hoola Bronzer and then Sun Beam. Sun Beam really added LIGHT to my face. When you initially apply it, you won't see the light. I was like, ummmm, I'm not seeing THE LIGHT... this isn't working! HaHaHa But it has to dry (give it less than a minute)! Once it dries, you'll see a beautiful glow! This gives me hope to contour. LOL I know I promised a Tarte Poppy Picnic Palette Review & Giveaway this week, BUT I didn't make the video for it yet :( Soooo, I'll post it on here Monday (Memorial Day). Have A Great Weekend!
