This is my favorite highlighter. It's a lot like Benefit High Beam, except easier to apply, and more luminous. If you're looking to add a little dewy-ness to your complexion, this is the first product to try. Copacabana is the perfect shade for my superfair skin. It comes in a squeeze-tube applicator which makes it easy to to use. A little goes a long way too, so it'll last for a very long time. I always apply it with my fingers, which melts the product slightly and blends it smoothly into my skin. I don't feel like it emphasizes pores in the same way a lot of highlighters do, and the way it makes my skin shimmer is unmatched.
