Benefit Sun Beam Review

I'm a recent Benefit convert, and since recently I've found myself obsessing over it. I read about Sun Beam and thought it would be great for the Summer to make you look more sun kissed (whether you are or not. Stupid English weather). 

I was going to buy this at the airport just before my holiday to Lanzarote but there wasn't an assistant around to tell me the price or to persuade me (not that I needed much persuading) that I need the product in my life. So, my friend and I decided to leave it, though we both regretted it terribly on holiday when we kept seeing it in all the magazines we had brought. 
Anyway, the day after I got back I paid a cheeky visit to Debenhams (need those beauty card points!) and I got my mitts on it. And boy am I glad I did.  Admittedly, it was the whole 'golden bronze' and 'liquid sunshine in a bottle' that sold me on Sun Beam. I'm not a fan of Moon Beam, I really dislike the nailpolish style of it, but I put my thoughts aside as I knew I wouldn't be happy until I had Sun Beam. 

Sun Beam is basically the same as Moon Beam just a golden version. The packaging is the same except Sun Beam has a palm tree instead of a moon and the nailpolish style applicator is the same. 
Watts Up by Benefit is my usual highlighter and even though I thought I preferred a stick highlighter, Sun Beam is making me reconsider this. The great thing with this highlighter is that it is very subtle, but you can make yourself as 'golden' as you want/need to.  I apply it on my brow bones, cheek bones, temples and sometimes on my cupid's bow and down the centre of my nose. 

Whilst to some people, £18.50 might seem like a lot to spend on a highlighter, it is well worth it. Benefit is a great quality brand, and there is a lot in the bottle which will last me a long time even with daily application! So, go go go (no pressure)...
