Benefit Sun Beam Highlighter Review & Swatches


The Benefit Sun Beam highlighter has become one of my firm favourites. I have been using it nearly everyday since purchasing it.


It gives the most beautiful, golden glow to the skin and with my NC42 colouring, it compliments my skin tone perfectly. I have come across other ‘gold’ highlighters and they tend to be more on the orange side, however this one is pure gold.


I like applying this to my cheekbones because it catches the light beautifully and gives the skin that glistening look. Also if you’re exposing some skin when on holiday or in the hotter months, try applying it to the shoulders or the collarbone. Mixing it with your foundation would give your skin that subtle, golden glow.


I have noticed it doesn’t last too well on my bare, combination skin, however when I have used foundation etc, then it lasts all day. I personally think it needs a base to ‘hold’ on to.

This bottle will last you absolutely ages and for me it is very travel friendly, although I wouldn’t keep this in my handbag.

Overall, I love this product and am so happy I purchased it! I have a fascination with highlighters and I am glad to find one that is much warmer in colour! I honestly think that you won’t be disappointed if you tried this!

Benefit Sun Beam Highlighter costs £18.50 and can be purchased HERE

    1. I was going to get high beam but found it too frosty for my skin tone. I think they told me at Benefit that the Moon Beam is going to get discontinued. xx
