Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

I did my research and this sounded like a great highlighter for me. However, I was very disappointed at how dark it turned out to be. It almost looked more like a bronzer on me, just in the wrong places. If you have naturally darker skin it seems liked it'd work nice.

      i really do love this product. i have tried countless powder highlighters including mac but found they didn't show up and didn't look good on my skin so i tried this. it is a great match for my fair skin and blends really well plus it lasts me forever.

      I own the sample size,and ive had it for a while but there is still a lot left... I love this but it can look like your skin is oily or shimmery. it looks nice and natural under bb cream or a light foundation. i would only use it on my cheekbones though. and i have sensitive skin and it didnt break me out so i love it! I also highlight my eyes with it! works well! very blendable!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

          It's not the product's fault, but a word of warning to anyone else who's very fair-- a brightener/highlight sounds great unless it's darker than your natural skin tone!

          The application, weight, and texture were all great, but it was one of those failed experiments for me, as it did the opposite of its intended purpose once it was on my skin. Definitely would work on a light/medium, particularly someone with maybe some honey tones, though, and with a light touch and some blending on darker tans and olives and browns, and it could look very nice. Just not for the porcelain-fair redhead population.

          I'd recommend it for anyone darker than me, basically, and was sad not to be able to get any personal use out of it.

            This product was recommended by an Ulta associate. I was really pleased when I tried it on in store. It's a champagne color and is silky and is easy to apply and blend with the sponge. I was a little hesitant because I have powder foundation and I didn't want it to look cakey on top. It looked really nice! I had a difficult time finding a highlighter that wasn't super glittery and that you could actually see. It has a dewy look. Love!

              I'm new to this highlighter fad so I've never really tried a highlighter before and I got this as a sample from Sephora. I went to try it and WOW! was I blown away at how easy and beautifully this product smoothed in my skin and foundation! It turned out really beautiful! and the perfect highlight! Plus I didn't breakout! I have really sensitive and normal to oily skin so I breakout quite easy and no breakouts what so ever! Love this product and I plan on buying it again! :)

                I got the sample size of this product from sephora a few months ago and fell in love. I recently purchased the full size from Ulta and I can tell it's going to be a constant re-purchase every time I run out. I love love love this highlighter. I have nothing bad to say about it. It's just the right amount of shimmer without being over-the-top and it blends SO well.

                I like the look and effect this highlighter gives. The only complaint I have is that it takes a lot of effort to make it look natural. It comes as a stick so I get a lot of hard lines. It really is beautiful, but I like Girl Meets Pearl better
