I'm reviewing the mini size/sample size bottle as that's the one I have. But it's exactly the same product as the normal sized bottle. The only difference is that with the small one the applicator is a wand and in the larger bottle it's a nail polish type stick. Ok, so onto the review. I LOVE love love this highlighter! Before I start with all the positives I will mention the only negative I have. It's not extremely blend-able. It does blend in, but requires quite a bit of patting and blending to create a more natural look. This might only be on my skin though.
If you pat 3 little dots along your cheek bone and blend upward towards the temple it creates a stunning effect when your face catches the light. You look professionally made-up and gives a fabulous illusion of having killer cheekbones. The colour is also gorgeous. It's a soft pink shimmer that also works well as a brow bone highlighter. You can add it to your moisturiser/foundation for an all over glow, but I haven't tried this yet. It has a great texture and once applied and blended it really looks stunning!

This product is THE BEST highlighter I have used, and looks great in photographs as well as in person. Friends always comment that my skin looks dewy when I use this product. This is a great product to use, especially if you have Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer. I normally contour my cheeks with Hoola, apply blush on the apples of my cheek and then add Benefit High Beam to my cheekbones. This product really adds the radiance back to your skin after applying medium to full coverage foundation, and I would definitely repurchase this product when it is finished.

I would recommend High Beam to girls with medium to light skin tones, and Moon Beam (which has a gold, bronzy tint) to girls with darker skin tones. Or you could just go to the counter and try both and see which effect you like more.
