Benefit 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.

Can't get enough

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

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.

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!

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.

Gorgeous Summer Glow without the sunshine
Sampled

This light creamy highlighter is the perfect little punch for my hot Florida summer beauty routine. Swipe a little bit on my cheek bones, cupid's bow, down the bridge of my nose and at the brow bone blend and maybe add a little powder and I am ready to roll for a quick and easy out the door summer look

Streaky Product
Sampled

They missed the mark with this product. It's terribly streaky and overly sparkly. The texture is cakey so it doesn't make for a smooth or effortless application. It doesn't give a subtle glow or highlight even when blended in. I don't know how they produced something like this.

Hard to blend

I use a powder foundation and bronzer as part of my daily makeup routine, and was excited to add a highlighter for an extra "oomph!" However, I found the stick to be too shiny for my darker skin and it was difficult to blend.

Love!

I love products like this and this one was great! Also, I LOVED the name and thought it was so catchy, made me crack a smile! It got the job done and gave me an extra highlight glow without going over the top and I was very satisfied!
