Benefit Hello San FrancisGLOW!


For my birthday (which was over a month ago now I've just been very bad at blogging recently - sorry!), I received the Benefit Hello San FrancisGLOW! highlighter kit from a friend. If you're as obsessed with highlighter as I am then this is perfect for you! It contains a mini Dandelion Shy Beam, a mini Dandelion Twinkle, a mini High Beam, a full-size Watt's Up! and a mini Powder Brush.

Considering the amount of makeup I buy, I had actually never tried a Benefit highlighter before. My favourite is High Beam, which is a gorgeous pink liquid highlighter that's perfect for applying over makeup and gives a radiant glow. Dandelion Twinkle is a paler pink than High Beam and is a powder rather than a liquid. This is great for strobing or it can also be applied all over the face - but I haven't tried this yet. Watt's Up! is a subtle rose-gold cream highlighter which is perfect for everyday use because it's not 'too glowy' - if that's even possible! Dandelion Shy Beam is a pink matte-radiance liquid highlighter, something that I've never used before, and Benefit say that you can wear this alone or with makeup. This isn't as sparkly as the other highlighters in the kit so it probably won't get as much use from me because I'm all for sparkles! The kit also comes with a guide on how to apply each highlighter which is really helpful.

This would make a great Christmas present for someone or if you want to try a few of Benefit's highlighters before buying the full-size version. Do you use any of these highlighters?

  1. High beam is something that I use on the daily basis - it looks gorgeous on the brow bone when the light hits it. But I have only ever had the small versions of it! I don't think I could possibly go through a big bottle of the stuff!

  12. I like how Benefit has these min gift sets where we can try so many products. This box looks great. I like the Watt's Up highlighter but never tried any other by the brand. :-)
