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.

I've never done contouring/highlighting, nothing. But on a whim, I decided to try strobing and bought this product and I do really like it. It's super subtle but really pretty and it blends really well. The packaging is great and Benefit products in general are really nice and high quality. I do really like it, I just think I need to practice strobing.

so i got a benefit eyebrow gel in my box one month and fell in love with the brand. i bought the full size of the eye brow thing at least 3 times. so when i was looking for a new highlighter i was so excited to see they had one. i took a gamble on the product since i hadn't tried it before but it was so worth it. it's amazing and it blends so smoothly. definitely worth the buy.
