Cons: hard to blend out


Today I’d like to talk about one of the products of the Benefit Sugar Licions kit. It consists of the minis of the legendary products, the so-called must-haves of millions of girls.

When I saw this kit in the store, I grabbed it immediately.

I’ve been testing all the products very thoroughly and slowly, but it’s for the better, because now I can estimate them fully and be just Wink


One of the trial sizes of the Sugar Licions kit was the bestseller of Benefit and namely the creamy High Beam highlighter.

The design of it is the same as the full-size version.

PACKAGING: The product comes in a small tube with a brush that reminds me of a nail polish, but it’s a highlighter inside.

The BRUSH is made of tough synthetic bristles here. It’s quite convenient to use.

VOLUME: 4 ml. The full size is 13 ml.

The TEXTURE is creamy and gel-like.

The SHADE is a pearly silver-pink. It reminds me of a real pearl. The shade looks either warm or cold according to the lighting, which is quite obvious in the swatches. The highlighter blends out really well and creates a beautiful and even coverage that gives an amazing glow.

THE USE: It’s better to apply this highlighter to the particular areas step by step.


  • nose

  • browbone

  • inner corners of eyes

  • the prominent part of cheekbones

  • cupid’s bow

  • labiomental groove

  • forehead

I apply it with dots or swipes and then blend it out right away.

In the picture I’ve shown the areas all at once, but in reality I apply it bit by bit.

Difficulties may arise with the blending process. This highlighter sets quite fast, so if you miss the moment, it will be a pain in the neck to blend out. To top it off, it starts interacting with a foundation very actively, so don’t apply it all at once.


Honestly, I expected something more from this product! I don’t know what I wanted exactly, but I thought I would be raving about it.

Well, no. There is no big love. The reason is the blending process. However, if I consider only its glowing performance, it works amazing in this respect.

I recommend this highlighter, but keep in mind what I said about the blending!

Thanks a lot for your attention!
