Benefit Watt's Up!

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.

Not the Best for My Oily Skin
Purchased

This product just builds up in my pores as it slips off of my face from how oily my skin is. I was really excited to receive this product, but it doesn't really work for me. I also tend to lean more towards natural looking products, and this one was just waaaaayyy too shimmery. It's a good color, though, so it didn't look too bronzy or anything like that.

Very lightweight and sheer
Purchased

This product was just okay for me. I was hoping for more of concealer/highlighter type of pigment but the product is very sheer and glossy. Perfect for a top of the cheekbone and under-eyebrow highlighter but I was dissatisfied with the lack of contouring I wanted.

Too shimmery
Purchased

I didn't like how shimmery this was. I also didn't really care for the color of it. It seemed a little too dark for my light skin.

Too shimmery for me
Purchased

The tint is nice, but there's just too much shimmer for me - I end up looking greasy at best. Also, I'm not sure if the sponge does much good - I have better luck with my fingers. The sponge is fairly dry and seems to just rub off my makeup.
I'm going to keep trying it, because I want to like it! Especially since the money is spent. I'm just not a fan so far.

Wrong Color

I wasn't able to try this product because I am African American and it shows up white on my skin and then makes me look yellow.
It felt nice and smooth on hand but not for me.

Too dark for my complexion.

I was very excited to try this product; however, it is a bit too dark for my complexion. I have very fair skin and freckles and this product creates a slight bronzing effect on cheeks that I'm not looking for in a highlighter. If you've used Sun Beam, it creates a similar shade when buffed out. If that's what you're going for, then this is perfect for you. Personally, I'll be ordering High Beam instead.

Good product but not what I expected
Purchased

I was really excited to receive this product and was so disappointed when it didn't turn out the way I liked. It's more of a bronzer and didn't look good on my fair face. But I liked the application of it and it was easy to apply. I'm looking forward to trying a similar product with a more rosy color.

Cool product but a bit pricey

I got this in my birchbox. I put it on under my foundation sometimes over. It is a bit confusing to use and it doesn't really do anything more than a tinted blush can do. I think this is a bit of a waste for a product. I would just buy a blush with a gold tint.

Pretty good

I do like this highlighter, but I just don't like having to blend/rub it in, because I usually apply it last when doing makeup. For this reason I like powder luminizers better. Still a pretty good product though!
