Benefit Sun Beam

One of the newest little glow-givers in the Benefit repertoire is this little baby ‘Sun Beam’ – now anything sun related is sorely needed in the UK at the moment since the Summer seems to have taken a rain check. Yes, I know it’s so cheesy and British to talk about the weather and complain, but seriously – it’s beyond a joke. No wonder so many people want to emigrate!

But, in the lack of sunshine we have the lovely Sun Beam to fake that sunshine glow…it’s a gorgeous golden bronzey shade to add a glowy highlight.

As with a lot of these liquid highlighters – a little goes a long way with the sheen it delivers. So you can go lightly and still get a radiant glow. I like to use this one just on the tops of the cheek bones keeping a subtle sheen rather than full on shimmer all over.
The colour of this will look amazing with a tan… not that I have the chance of getting a real one of those anytime soon!

    I seriously can’t believe you’re complaining about British weather – I would kill for a few days like that!
    In Croatia we have sun and temperatures above 33 C for days in a row and I can’t stand it anymore.

      Can we swap, we haven’t had more than one single day of sunshine with no rain in over a month! I guess it’s always the way that the grass is always greener on the other side 🙂

    It is a really great product I do prefer High Beam though, I am not a bronzing kinda gal! But I would highly recommend it if you are, great review!
