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.

Perfect Amount of Shimmer

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.

I love this highlighter. It is creamy and easily blendable. The formula sticks to my skin and it lasts for hours. It is good for subtle and loud because for loud you can always add another highlighter on top.

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.

My Absolute Favorite Highlighter! and beauty extra!
Sampled

I had never used a highlighter product before this one....and now.....this is my go-to product for that extra special glow when I want to look my best in person or in a picture at a special event! (I made sure to have it for my wedding!)....it gives you a special dewey glow and look of being refreshed! Like you just had a massage and a good night's sleep. Use it under your eyes (like an upside down 7...under eyes to the outer edges of your eye), down center top of nose and under nose and then on your chin too. Rub in with your ring finger to blend well...Voila!
