Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam is nude pink matte-radiance highlighter for face. I got this from the UK with discount, it costs Â£22.00(original price). Not so sure about Malaysia.
Previously I was using Benefit High Beam Face Highlighter for 3 years and decided to give Shy Beam a try. The former has obvious effect as it shimmers, it took me quite some time to get used to the effect of Shy Beam.
Shhh, itâ€™s the highlighter with a low profile. This soft-matte, nude pink highlighter puts the most natural-looking spotlight on you. Let a radiant you shine through!
You can use it on its own or with makeup. I’m using it under my blusher to give subtle glow to the cheekbone and to plump up the cheek. I’m also using it on top of my face powder or foundation on various parts of my face(refer to photo above) as my last step of makeup.
Left: Before, only with face powder.
Right: After, Shy Beam applied and smooth out.
Since it is shy, shimmer-less, it’s not that obvious. The nose area is quite obvious as it catches the light more. In actual life, it gives you healthy glow and diffuse light which can “conceal” some of my pigmentation and highlights without shimmer.
Remember, it is shy, a little goes a long way. Otherwise, instead of healthy glow, you’ll get white residue stuck in pores and fine lines on your face, it does not look good at all! However, it will not be that obvious for High Beam if you applied a bit too heavily.
Final effect with my daily makeup. Can you see the soft sheen of Shy Beam?
I might go back to High Beam, this is too shy for me. Anyway, both are very good products.
