LOVE THIS HIGHLIGHTER

By MMSTLINK

from ST LOUIS

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter:

I received a sample of this product almost a year ago and when I finally ran out I immediately purchased! I love the consistency of this product! It goes on so smooth and blends so easily. The packaging is cute and it's so easy to use! Swipe and blend! I don't use the applicator at the end but that's fine!

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter:

Seriously the best highlighter I ever used. Super pigmented. It all depends how use apply it and to make sure it last long I make sure I set it with a powder highlighter and let me tell you I'm glowing like a disco ball. I have this one and high beam and I love this one way better and the color. You can use this one on top of powders.

    Made me breakout

    By Sarah

    from Dallas, TX

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter:

    No complaints about the makeup itself, it looked fine. The problem came after a few days of using this: the skin on my cheekbones and nose were covered with small red bumps. It wasn't acne, more like a weird rash. I'd like to mention that my skin is not sensitive at all and that I was very surprised when I had a strange reaction to this product. Disappointed, I had to stop using.

          What's the difference between Watt's Up and Girl meets Pearl? I have Ivory skin in benefit products, so which would be better for my skin? I already own Girl meets Pearl, and I'm wondering if I should also purchase this.

            A:

            Hi gorgeous!

            Watt's Up! is a champagne cream-to-powder stick that is ideal for soft-focus highlighting. Girl Meets Pearl is a golden-pink liquid that is ideal for mixing with foundation for an all-over glow. You can use both products together or you can alternate, but they will both look gorgeous on your ivory skin!

            A:

            Hi gorgeous!

            First of all, don't forget to prep & prime your skin! Apply a moisturizer followed by a primer to create a smooth canvas for your makeup. You can apply watt's up! before or after your foundation - try using a foundation brush, a sponge, or even your finger!

            xoxo, B

            with a foundation brush or even a sponge.
