I would give High Beam 5 stars if it weren't for the existence of NARS Copacabana Illuminator, as they are similar to the point of being almost identical. However, I find that Copacabana has more shimmer to it than High Beam, and is easier to apply. High Beam applies more like a nail polish to me, and I noticed that a lot of dried product likes to build up under the screw-top lid. Copacabana comes in a squeeze tube and has none of the aforementioned problems. I have found that I almost never use High Beam since I bought Copacabana.
