Today saw another really busy one. We were the busiest I've ever known at work. At one point we actually ran out of teapots... Now, tell me, how can you have a tea shop with no teapots left to serve people? Oh well, on to the beauty!
Now, today I am reviewing perhaps one of the best dupes around and that is Highlights by Technic which is the well known dupe for Benefit's High Beam. In terms of packaging and product appearance there is very very little difference between the two. As for the price tag, there really is. I picked up this bottle for £2.49 in Just Beauty, where as for a bottle of High Beam you will pay £18.50 and get the same amount of product. I'd like to say now that I haven't ever owned a bottle of High Beam so this isn't a post directly comparing the two, but there are a few comparisons that are based solely from swatching High Beam on the Benefit counter at work.
One thing that does also bug me about the Technic offering is just how clearly they have copied the High Beam bottle, down to the font of the writing. Fair play, a dupe is a dupe, but it seems a little OTT in my opinion, it feels a little too desperate to be seen as a copy of a Benefit product.
So over all, I rate this very highly and I think that for £2.49 you can't go wrong, especially if this is your first time using a highlighter and don't want to fork out lots of money for a high end product even if the packaging does bug me a little :P
Have you ever tried this product? Do you think its a better option that High Beam? Or are you devoted to Benefit? Personally, I think I'll be sticking to Highlights, although I do have my eye on Sun Beam.
