Shy Beam Matte Liquid Highlighter

Benefit Shy Beam Matte Liquid Highlighter ($26) is officially available at yay! This is a nude pink matte highlighter in a soft shade of baby pink that’s completely shimmer free. I got a chance to try this out Benefit Operation Pore-Proof Kit recently and I loved it and couldn’t wait for Benefit to release it all its own.

This is fabulous using above cheek bones right below the wells of your eyes to contour with as it lifts and adds brightness to the area! It’s also great to use on the brow bone for a hint of brightness! There’s no end to the ways you can use this to add a little light (but not shimmer) to your complexion!

Love this stuff!

See swatches below!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    A matte highlighter? Awesome! I’ll find out if the pale pink goes with my warm skin. This is the first blog I’ve seen this product on, so thank you.

      My pleasure Fey! GET IT GET IT NOW lol! It’s really great under eyes 🙂

  • Benni

    Any news on when it will make an appearance on Ulta? Would love to use the 20% off code there… Thanks, Muse!

    • Isabella Muse

      Looks like Sephora got first dibs Benni but if I hear anything about the Ulta release I’ll give you a heads up! 🙂

    I was perusing the Sephora website earlier today and came across this item in the “New Arrivals” section and I knew I had to have it. I bought it without even seeing swatches, but I just loved the idea of a matte highlighter and the packaging is just beautiful! So happy you made a post dedicated to this product. Now I know I did not waste money on this highlighter 🙂

      You’re going to love it. I think it is way better than the regular high beam formula! Update me when it arrives curious what you think!

      mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm you’d have to be super fair to get away with it under your eyes otherwise it is going to look really chalky and really pasty. I dunno if it’ll crease, haven’t tried it under my eyes (I’d look like a ghost if I did).

    Packaging is really cute. I have a lot of benefit stuff already from all the set sales, though.

    This freaks me out. How does it blend? It looks very pale so I’ll probably have to swatch it in Sephora before committing to a purchase.
