Battle of the Highlighters : Benefits High Beam Vs. Me Me Me Beat The Blues


Benefit - High Beam // £18.50
(In all pictures Beat the Blues is on the left and High Beam is on the right) 

In a recent Glossy Box I received Me Me Me Beat the Blues in Pearl Pink. I was instantly intrigued as to how it compares to High Beam as it looked like an exact dupe. As you can see they are both packaged in similar bottles and have that similar pearly pink colour. However, is that where the similarity ends?

Firstly, the amount you get in each product is roughly the same, with High Beam contains 13ml and Beat the Blues contains slightly less at 12ml. High Beam costs £18.50 and Beat the Blues costs just £5.50. For such a large difference in price you would expect to see a large difference in the quality of the product, right?

When first applying the product you can begin to see some differences. High Beam is slightly thicker, whilst Beat the Blues is slightly runny. However, once you blend it in it is very hard to tell the difference. On closer inspection High Beam is more iridescent, but this could be a positive or a negative depending on what exactly you are looking for in a Highlighter.

As for staying power, I tested them both out, one on each cheek and found that High Beam did last slightly longer, but not enough to warrant the high difference in price. I have been a devout user of High Beam for a long time now, but I definitely feel Beat the Blues can give High Beam a run for its money.

Have you tried either of these products? If so what did you think?

  1. High Beam is one of my favourite highlighters but I haven't repurchased it in a while because of the price. I will have to check out the Me Me Me dupe :) x

  11. High Beam has been getting lots of dupes lately with almost the exact same packaging as the original. I tried a Korean dupe today and actually liked it better than High Beam! xx

  14. I just got High Beam in the Feelin' Dandy box and I'm loving it so far, this sounds like a pretty good dupe though. I did a Benefit Benetint Vs the new models own lip and cheek tint recently :)
