Benefit SunBeam

Afternoon lovelies, hope its sunny where you are.

For a long time, Benefit has been one of my go to brands for higher priced make-up, I don't own anything more expensive. I love everything about it, the packaging, the quality, the retro styling, its just so cute!

So when I saw that they were bringing out another highlighter, I knew it was something I would need in my collection.

'This golden bronze highlighter gives you a natural, sun kissed radiance. Dot & blend over makeup on to cheek & brow bones for a bronzed glow that complements all skin tones. It’s liquid sunshine in a bottle!'

Sunbeam is a warm, creamy bronze highlighter with very subtle light reflecting particles that will brighten most skin tones. It's probably more suitable for a normal to drier skin then mine, so I need to use it sparingly, and not anywhere it will highlight larger pores.

Its easy to apply, simply dot along the high points on cheekbones, cupids bow and brow bone for subtle highlighting, alternatively mix with you foundation for an all over glow. Another way of applying is one I've been using recently, but mix it with a couple of drops of Benefit Benetint and apply on apple of cheeks, blending up using fingers - this gives a nice flush of colour.

As with all Benefit products, a little goes a long way, so this will last quite a while, which is how I justify the price really.
I've used this so much over the summer - its a real staple in my make up bag and one that I'm sure I will use over winter as well.

You can pick this up from Benefit counters in Boots or at for £18.50, a total Bargain and well worth the investment, do you think?



  1. I think I need to add this one to my Benefit collection, Love it:)
