Benefit Gilded Highlighting Pencil Review

Share

benefit-gilded-highlighting-pencilBenefit Gilded Highlighting Pencil ($20) why we love it: Our tequila-gold highlighting pencil adds a glimmer of gold to lips, brow bones, eyes, anywhere you want. It’s like 24 carat gold in a stick…and just as valuable!

what else you need to know: It catches light in the most provocative ways you have to see to believe!

My Thoughts:

I prefer Gilded Highlighting Pencil over High Beam and Moon Beam because it matches my skin tone the most. It has a golden yellow tone. It runs out faster than High Beam and Moon Beam because it is a pencil, but I still like it. The staying power also isn’t as good as High Beam and Moon Beam. Gilded also doesn’t highlight as well either. Gilded is smudgable, so I just my fingers to blend it out. I also find it more versatile. I can use it to highlight the inner corner of my eyes, my cupid’s bow, my nose bridge, cheeks. Everywhere!

I find that High Beam is for a pale and pink skin tones. It has a bit of a whitish tone to it so it can be a bit obvious if you have dark skin or a tan. You would be better off with Benefit Moon Beam or Benefit Gilded Highlighting Pencil.

Benefit Moon Beam Review

benefit-moon-beam Benefit Moon Beam ($24) why we love it: A golden apricot liquid that illuminates cheek and brow bones and adds a warm shimmer to your complexion.

what else you need to know: Looks perfectly radiant on all skin tones.

Can be used as a spot highlighter or delicately blended all over your complexion.

My  Thoughts:

Benefit Moon Beam will definitely give you a dewy, radiant look. It instantly wakes up your entire face and gives you this healthy glow. You don’t have to worry about looking too shiny or glittery. A little goes a long way so this bottle will last you practically forever. The one thing that really bothers me is the packaging. I hate the bottle with the nail polish looking brush. I just pour a little bit onto a sponge and use a brush to apply.

I find that Moon Beam (also Benefit Gilded Highlighting Pencil) is perfect for people who have dark skin or a tan because it has more of a golden pink tone where Benefit High Beam is more for a pale and pink skin tones. High Beam has a bit of a whitish tone to it so it can be a bit obvious if you have dark skin or a tan.
