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 really like to use this product as an eye shadow base or for a slight highlight on the nose or cheeks.

Beautiful glow

This is an amazing highlighter. I put it under my eyes since I am prone to dark circles and it makes it look much better. I love wearing this with a red dress and gold jewelry. I also love wearing it in the summer and to festivals for that beautiful natural look.

Not for me
Purchased

I expected something that would give me noticeable highlights, but this product is very subtle. It has a sort of sparkle to it that I found I really didn't like.
This product may work well for others, but it's not for me.

Pretty and natural
Sampled

I've never used any highlighters before for makeup but with this product I think I might start! the shimmer is delicate and pretty, and I love how creamy it is to ensure ease of blending. It doesn't have those purple, fake looking holographic tones, so you look naturally beautiful!
