    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

    If you have greasy skin, as I do, I would advise against this product. Whenever I wear this my skin turns into an oil slick where it's been applied. My makeup just turns cakey. It's gross. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

                  I have this but I'm having trouble with the application. Seems to be hard to apply and blend. Any suggestions on how to make the application easier? Mix with another product to make it more liquidy and smooth and applicable with a small brush?

                    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!

                    A:

                    Watt's Up features a long wearing formula but is not claimed to be waterproof. Benefit Cosmetics has not tested or claimed exact wear time, since this may vary due to individual factors such as skin type and climate.

                  so I am Mexican and Spaniard, I have a nice 'golden tan" if you will, with a yellow undertone. I have really been looking forward to investing in this product but I am skeptical on how compatible it will be with my skin tone, I am afraid it will be too light even after blending. Can some one please give e their opinion on this?

                  I want to purchase this to achieve a "dewy" finish. When do I apply this during my make up routine? Before foundation? After? I'm not sure.

                  Is this the best product choice in Benefit for the "dewy" look?
