Birchbox Breakdown

Hunching in front of our laptop screens and working until the wee hours of the morning is not, it turns out, a recipe for glowing skin. However, this face highlighter from Benefit could fool anyone who’s unfamiliar with our sleep habits. The creamy formula creates a soft-focus, healthy champagne glow on cheeks and brow bones. A few swipes and behold: You’re the proud owner of a gleaming complexion.

How to Use

Glide the formula onto cheeks and brow bones, blending with the attached sponge. Apply solo or over your makeup.

Love this item

I really love this product. I'm not big on highlighters, mostly because the ones I've tried in the past have been too glittery and opaque. Watt's Up gives a lovely sheen that looks great on my skin. I just use a small amount right above my cheekbones. I've found that the best way to apply is to pat it on and blend well with my fingers. If I swipe it on like a lipstick, it's way too heavy.

Makes me feel like a goddess
Sampled

I love this product. I have an olive skin tone and this product ends up making me feel like a beautiful bronze beach babe. It's easy to use, you simply cannot mess up. It's subtle yet glamorous.

Subtle, but Pretty

This highlighter is easy to swipe on and blend in, and gives a subtle sheen to the cheekbones. If you like a high power highlighter, probably not for you, but great for beginners and those to prefer subtlety!

Easy, simple, elegant

Simple shine. I use it on my high brown bone, upper cheek area and down center of my nose. Glides on perfect and easy. Lasts a long time!

Love this!

I use the small one I received in my Birchbox on my eyes. It's perfect to helped whiten and brighten. I was given compliments on how rested I looked the first day I tried it. I am hesitant to buy the full size because the mini one is perfect for my eyes!

Great highlighter
Sampled

This is my favorite Birchbox sample, yet. On days when I want to look nice, but only have time for a minimal routine, this is my go to. I have dark under-eye circles and this eliminates them with a perfect touch of glimmer. Love it.

Just the right amount of shine!
Sampled

I don't normally use highlighters since I tend to have a fairly simple beauty routine. But I have to admit that this creamy highlighter made my skin dewy in all the right ways. I never felt like it made my face feel greasy and didn't irritate my sensitive skin. I could see myself adding this to my beauty routine, especially when I need an extra little perk up.

Perfect for summer
Sampled

Received this sample. This is good product especially for Spring and Summer. It is a nice color that is universal for most skin colors. I have used this several times to highlight my cheeks and other areas on my face that I want to highlight. I don't care for the sample size and how it pushes up. Otherwise, I definitely will continue to use this product in my makeup arsenal.

Gorgeous color, but thick
Sampled

I absolutely love the color glow that this gives off. I used it for my senior prom as my highlight. My only complaint is that the consistency is thick which makes it a little hard to apply. If it was a little thinner, I would give it 5 stars. The formula didn't break me out and the packaging was so cute.
