Here’s What the New Benefit Cosmetics Highlighters Look Like on 2 Editors
Benefit Cosmetics just dropped two new highlighter shades, and after getting an exclusive sneak peek, we can confirm that these new hues will make you glow like you just got back from holiday in Greece — even if you've just been sitting in your flat bingeing Love Island all Summer. And while these aren't a new formula and rather a shade extension, when something is as perfect as the Benefit boxed powders, why fix what ain't broken?
The two new hues are "Cookie" (a soft champagne with golden shimmer) and "Tickle" (a peachy gold with pink undertones). Both powder highlighters feel incredibly silky to the touch, which means that on your face they feel super lightweight and don't make your skin look the least bit dry or dusty. Although "Cookie" was featured in the Benefit Cosmetics Cheerleader Bronze Squad Palette (£52), this is the first time the new shades will take the spotlight and be sold individually — and boy, are we pleased. The highlighters can be worn on their own, layered on top of cream highlighter, and even added to fixing mist to create a shimmery, iridescent all-over finish to the skin.
But don't just take our word for it — we'll let the photos speak for themselves. Ahead, see exactly what two editors thought of the new hues and how they'll be wearing them all through the Summer and beyond.
Benefit Cosmetics Cookie and Tickle Highlighter launches Aug. 9 exclusively on lookfantastic.co.uk, and Aug. 23 nationwide for £26 each.
