Technic Highlights vs. Benefit High Beam
Until last Summer, the thought of a highlighter made me shudder. I could just imagine myself putting too much on and ending up with the greasiest looking face ever. Thankfully, since I got a little sample of Benefit's High Beam with an issue of Glamour Magazine, highlighters have been a staple product in my daily make up routine.
I spotted Technic Highlights in Bodycare for £1.99 a couple of weeks ago and noticed that it looked pretty much an identical dupe for the Benefit beauty we know and love. Bearing in mind how much I love High Beam, I snatched it off the shelf before I even had a minute to decide whether I really needed it or not.
On comparison, you can clearly see that the bottles are practically spitting images of each other. Naughty Technics! High Beam is slightly more pink based and has a little bit more of a thicker consistency to it. You can also see from the swatches above that it blends a lot more naturally than the Technics version.
With a price difference of over £17, I think this is possibly one of the best dupes I've ever seen. Even the staying power lasts just as long as High Beam. I guess if I wanted to be really picky, I could say that the Highlights brush is quite sparse and doesn't seem to pack on as much product as it's competitor but for £1.99 I wouldn't dream of complaining about it!
If you can't get to a Bodycare then you can find this delightful dupe on ebay here for a barganious price of £2.75. What are you waiting for?!
