I've purchased High Beam by Benefit (£19.50) twice in the past and I would definitely put it in my holy grail list of products. It takes a lot for a product to be considered holy grail for me so I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on why I love it so much!

The product itself comes in a nail polish style bottle and has a similar brush applicator. As always, the Benefit packaging is very visually appealing in keeping with that old school, retro style vibe which I love. It comes as a light pink liquid with a satin sheen to it which I prefer as glittery highlighters have a tendency to make me look like a disco ball!  

If you struggle with dry skin like me this product is great for giving your skin that healthy, dewy glow that we girls are always after. This is also why I prefer liquid highlighters to powder ones. All you have to do is simply dab the product on the tops of your cheekbones and over the brow bone and blend with a light hand. What I love about this product is how subtle it looks on top of your foundation, it blends like a dream and literally gives your skin boost in seconds. If you're in a rush in the morning - definitely reach for this!

I also love the longevity of this product, I have used High Beam for years and it is by far the best highlighter I have ever used. You would think, having used it for years I would have bought loads but I have only needed to repurchase this product twice before - that's how long a single bottle lasts! I will definitely continue to repurchase High Beam again and again and again. It lasts all day long and gives my skin a very fresh-faced, youthful look like no other...
