Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter

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.

I LOVE this stuff! I use it everywhere; cheeks, under eyes, eye brow, etc. My favorite trick is rubbing my finger on the end and spreading it under my eyes. I tend to have dark circles and this helps give me some extra spunk. I use my finger only because the stick is too big to rub under my eyes, but it works great everywhere else!! <3

Hands down

The best highlighter ever. I've actually owned the full size of this for the longest time and I love how much highlight it gives me. It's super easy to apply. The sample will last me a couple months I'm sure, it's pretty huge. Benefit makes the best products! If you're a beginner and are looking for a highlighter, this is it!

Pretty Good

While the sponge applicator really doesn't do much in terms of effectiveness, the highlighter is wonderful! It is a little thick, by just blend with your fingers or a beauty blender and you should be alright. The color and shine is wonderful and natural looking: overall, a great product!

Nice

It is a pretty good highlight, but once applied I don't see much of a difference between Watt's Up and High Beam. I use High Beam daily, so Watt's Up doesn't get much use.

Love the look, which the applicator was smaller
Purchased

This is a great highlighter; the color really blends in well, and creates a beautiful glow. I bought it after recieving a sample as a gift from my sister in law. I have to say, I did prefer the same, because of the size of the applicator! I use this a lot on my brow bone and inner eye-lid, and the full size one just doesn't fit in those spots, so I have to use my finger and then transfer the product, or it gets all of my face!
Overall, still love the product and highly recommend.

Perfect Amount of Shimmer
Purchased

Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this highlighter. It's super easy to put on (although the applicator end on this is pretty useless, I just use my own blenders) and it looks AMAZING without falling into costume territory. LOVE!

Natural looking and bright

I really like this highlighter, love that it goes to a powder formula, because I have really oily skin and large pores and this has applied pretty naturally--adds a glow without settling in pores or looking cakey on top of my setting powder. I wish they had at least one other shade/color, the champagne is really nice but I have to be careful with it to not look like I'm putting a bunch of gold on, as my skin tone is very very pale with pink tones...so I wish they had more of a pearlescent option. But if I'm light-handed and only use it in select places, it can give a nice glowy effect. The sample doesn't have the blender, which would have been nice--it's done well with just my finger, though.
