Usually, my sisters invade my makeup kit whenever I have new products to test. I'm okay with it since they give me additional feedback which helps me when I write my reviews. This time around, it was me who "borrowed" my sister's makeup... permanently. Haha! This product has been in my makeup kit for months already. 😁
If not for Andy, I wouldn't have known that Bench has a hidden gem of a product in their cosmetics line. (Yup, apparently Bench also sells a lot of makeup!)
Bench Paint Box Frosted Pearl Highlighter 5.5g (P139)
The smooth texture highlighter that gives instant radiant effect in the areas highlighted.
It comes in a simple chubby pen packaging, which makes for convenient application.
I've been using this so much, but it's just now that I was able to take photos of it. (The product is supposed to look taller than this when it's brand new.)
Bench Paint Box Frosted Pearl Highlighter gives of a nice, healthy, and natural-looking sheen. It doesn't have a too-yellow base unlike typical highlighters; it's more beige with silver micro shimmers so it blends better with most skin tones. It's buildable, blendable, and fool-proof (even for beginners). It took me around 3 swipes for the glow to be visible on my face, and I just use my finger to blend it. It has a very smooth glide and a light, velvety feel, which is surprising for a product this affordable. I actually expected it to feel heavy or have chunky glitters, but this product delivers really well. Staying power is average on my oily skin, but for its price I don't have the right to complain! Plus, I can reapply this one anytime because it's travel-friendly.
I have a newfound interest with Bench's makeup line, so I'll make sure to drop by their store on my next mall trip.
