I love everything Stila as far as makeup goes, and this is another great product from Stila. I use this as part of my highlighting/contouring makeup – a few items that I put on my face daily and an essential product. After a great experience with Benefit’s High Beam (a mini size in a sample pack), I was committed to buying a full size bottle since I use this every day anyway.

I bought this in #3 (Luminous Gold) since over the summer I had a little bit of a tan on the rest of my body. The texture is exactly the same as Benefit High Beam, by the way – not runny and does not rub off, and is easily blendable. I use this along the bridge of my nose, and sometimes mix with a sunscreen to give my skin a nice glow. Even though a powder luminizer is easier to use, I find that this liquid version is more versatile – sometimes if I overdosed on a cream blush, this will help tone down the pigment and give the cheeks a nice sheen. It’s just one of those all-round fixer-upper that truly works for everything and with everybody!

Between Benefit and Stila, as far as High Beam and All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer go, they are pretty much identical, so if you ask me which one is better, I really can’t tell you. High Beam is pink-hued though – and I find that it is more flattering on me than this one, but texture and staying power wise, both are great! One bottle will last you a long time.
