After all the hype of this product I was super excited to pick this up. It swatches really nicely and looks like it will be great. But, on the skin this looked so chalky and powdery. I wasn’t getting any ‘metallic’ or sheen, it just looked bad. I’ve never really disliked a highlight before this which I’m shocked by. I’m not sure if this just isn’t good for my skin tone (NC25) but it looked like a white stripe that didn’t even look like a highlight. I have other highlights that I love so I returned this. I have never liked benefits big bulky packaging but the brush in this felt much softer than their other products so in this case it didn’t bother me as much that they have the brush in this. Considering how much people like this highlight I feel like I’m missing something so I would say try it but if you can, try it on your face instead of just swatching it.

Finally, a brand has listened to us consumers!

Purchased this as part of the Cheekleader palette and obsessed! All my favorite youtubers have recommended and all facts. It's so smooth and silky, and doesn't emphasize texture or pores. So glad Benefit rolled this out as a single. Cookie is a winner, baby!

YAAASSSS!!! Finally..this was hands down the standout shade from both Cheekleader palettes and for good reason. Blends like butter, is long lasting and looks subtle if you go in light, but can be built up to have that beautiful glow/wet look. My favorite highlighter of all time and can’t wait to get this tomorrow.

Best highlighter I’ve ever used! Glowed all day and didn’t have to reapply once. Will buy again for sure!

Immediately one of my favorite highlights of all time

I saw a photo of this highlight on Reddit and went into my local Ulta that day to pick it up. This is one of the most buttery, finely-milled highlights I've ever come across. It is not glittery in the slightest; you can blend to your heart's content and not get glitter all over your face. I love wearing this without makeup for a nice healthy sheen, but I also love it as a blinding highlight. It's very universal in application. Cookie is a touch lighter and less pink than Tickle, and it's perfect for the very lightest of skin tones. I think it would go a touch ashy if overused on very deep skin tones. I surprisingly like the brush that comes with it, too. I usually throw them out, but this one is nice for applying (minus the bristles being a touch rough).

What’s a good cheap blinding highlighter? (Colourpop, morphe, wet n wild, Maybelline, nyx, e.l.f., etc.)

I have the Anastasia glow kit and the kat von d liquid highlight and I love them, but I’m looking for a highlighter that isn’t so glittery and that will give me more of a wet look. I just don’t want little specks of glitter like the Anastasia and kat von d give me, as I would rather have a more glowing look rather than a glitter look, any suggestions on a highlighter?

Hey! For people who go to Ulta, please what is a good Conscealer, loose powder, Foundation and Highlighter?

Hey, I shop at Ulta! First things first, everyone and their mom uses Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Then, get yourself some Coty Airspun Powder but not translucent because of the flashback. I use the shade “Naturally Neutral”. For foundation, I’m in love with the Too Faced Born This Way because it’s really great for coverage, blendability, buildability, and glowy skin. Lastly, I use the Cookie Highlighter by Benefit and it has a beautiful payoff! Hope I helped!
