The Benefit High Beam dupe that’s UNDER £4

I really love discovering new products from budget beauty brand W7, they’re so affordable and yet they so often produce amazing dupes for cult beauty items from other brands. They’re really affordable too and they have a mahoosive range of products.
Sadly W7 products are not often available in high street shops and it’s easy to miss out; the answer is to have the occasional trawl through Amazon to see what’s on offer from W7! I’ve found some amazing products from W7 over the last few years and they’re so affordable but still great quality.
Night Glow is a liquid illuminating highlighter that comes in a small bottle that looks a bit like a nail varnish bottle. You can use it to highlight certain areas of the face, like the cheekbones, brow bone and cupid’s bow of the lips. I have found that the best way to apply it is to paint a few drops onto my fingers then dab and stipple the shimmery liquid all over the skin being careful not to rub or drag as this can remove the foundation underneath. You could also try using a sponge to apply Night Glow, this would give a nice even finish but I find that make-up sponges do soak up a lot of excess product.
There are lots of other great uses for Night Glow too, you can apply it really sparingly to highlight parts of the body that you want to draw attention to such as collarbones and shoulders (think a nice shimmer on balmy Summer’s evening) plus you can mix a few drops in with other products such as liquid foundation, lip gloss or body lotion to give your skin an all over glow.
W7 Night Glow is a total dupe for the expensive High Beam liquid highlighter from Benefit. High Beam is one of Benefit’s top-selling products and it’s been around for, like, forever! The W7 option is currently only £3.44 which is over £18 cheaper than Benefit, but they’re almost identical! Have a look at the swatch image below:
The two products are almost identical, W7 Night Glow is just half a shade more pink than its Benefit counterpart but not enough for it to matter. So as much as I love Benefit High Beam I’d always go for the cheaper W7 Night Glow option!
If you want to read about another amazing W7 dupe then have a look at this review I wrote about W7 Hollywood Bronze & Glow. It’s a Charlotte Tilbury dupe that costs LESS THAN £5!
W7 Night Glow is a nice subtle alternative to the current trend of strobing if you don’t want something too light or shiny on your face, and if you want more of an obvious shimmer you can build up the coverage. I absolutely love it, in fact I’m on my third bottle!
What are your favourite dupe products?
Prices correct at time of writing, the price of W7 Night Glow does fluctuate on Amazon, sometimes it costs as little as £2.40!
