|Benefit High Beam review!|
At girls night last week, my good friend Bailee brought up the need for her makeup looks to be dewy. We both took a second to fangirl over Carmindy (a makeup artist from WNTW), who always looks so glowy and dewy. It's some touched-by-an-angel shit.
I started going through the favorite highlighters I've used and looking up swatches on my phone, but I remembered that Benefit High Beam seemed to keep popping up on youtube and reddit. It looked to be just what we both wanted: a non-dry, non-glittery highlight that leaves you glowy and dewy. To quote Bailee, "Like you just stuck your face in some dew." Yes, that's exactly what we wanted.
So I finally got it today. I didn't take photos of swatches, but here it is on my face.

I'm pretty damn pleased. It gives an awesome pale, glowy effect without big shimmer/glitter particles.
|Do you see any glitter? I don't.|
I tried a little on the lids and inner corner of my eyes, as well as the bridge of my nose, but lets be real.
It's about the cheekbones right now.

UNNNNNGGGHHHH DAT DEWWW.
|This is the face I make when I've just stuck my face into some dew. UNNHHGGGHHG|
Overall, it's a little pricey at $26, but for something with a result I like this much, I can deal with that.

Thank you, Bailee, for bringing up the dew. It has changed my life and I know it will soon change yours (since yours is in my car ready for the next girls night).
Compared to other products:
Mary Loumanizer is more yellow/white, less pink. It's also a powder, so it shows up a little drier on dry skin like mine.
Watt's Up is darker, more gold, and a little more shimmery and less glowy. It's awesome for all over golden looks!
