Benefit High Beam Dupe
Highlighters are key for that fresh, glowy look we all know and love. The beauty cult favorite seems to be Benefit High Beam which retails for a little under $30 for the full size bottle which is only 0.45oz I might add. I purchased a mini trio set from Macy's a few weeks ago which included Benefit High Beam, Benetint, and Posie Tint, I got all three for $15, STEAL!
So I finally got to see what all the hype was about and I was a little dissapointed because I find that the dupe I have for this product is a bit better and only $1! I have been using the e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal for while and I really love it. But I thought, hey this Benefit High Beam is $30 and everyone raves about it, it must be soooo much better! No.
Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike High Beam, but why pay $30 for something that you can get for $1?
Here is the comparison between the two products under natural light so you can see the highlight effect.
This one is taken under bathroom lighting, which shows the color comparison a little better.
The only major difference between the two is the application method. High Beam is a nail polish style brush which is a pain to me. The Facial Whip is a squeeze tube style applicator. Also, the formulas are a tad different as well, High Beam is extremely liquidy and the Facial Whip is almost like a cream blush consistency which I find a lot easier to work with.
So overall, I definitely like the e.l.f. Facial Whip better. Plus, you can't beat the price!! It is definitely a dupe for Benefit High Beam if you're looking for a less expensive alternative : )
