PLACE BOUGHT: Free
OTHER LOCATIONS: Benefit Cosmetics GB 5; Rustan's Edsa Shangri-La Mall, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City
I have always believed that Watts Up! is the best highlighter I've ever tried, until I met Sun Beam. Watts Up! still has a special place in my heart, but a morena gal like me has found a best friend in Sun Beam.
Sun Beam has trumped Watts Up! in my 'Go-to highlighter list'. Why? Because it is so morena skin- friendly! It's liquid sunshine-y happiness in a bottle that instantly enhances my tan and gives me a very, very natural glow. I love using this during daytime because it reflects so well in natural lighting.
Sun Beam is a beige-bronze shade with a generous dose of gold glimmer. Its consistency is comparable to Cha Cha Tint and Posie Tint. It blends like a dream and dries up quickly. Staying power is awesome too.
I apply Sun Beam on these parts for a Golden Summer Glow. A little goes a long way because this highlighter is very pigmented!
Told 'ya! It's the perfect companion for medium, tan, and dark skin! :D
Isn't it obvious!? I'm so happy for having Sun Beam in my life! :D
But I wouldn't put Watts Up! away because I still love it. During night time, I use Watts Up! because Sun Beam doesn't show up well in dim lighting. Watts Up! is best for gals with fair skin tone, while Sun Beam looks great on medium, tan, and dark skin tones. If you have dry skin, you may opt for Watts Up! because it has a moisturizing texture. For gals with oily skin like me, Sun Beam is great for you because it stays put all day.
TIP: If you want to use Sun Beam as a highlighter during night events and occasions, apply two to three layers so it would show up no matter how dim the lighting is.
