    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

    While I don't LOVE the price on this, the product itself keeps reeling me right back in. I've tried similar products by NYX, and even NARS, and this is definitely my front runner. It's portable, long lasting, and has a nice shimmer without being a glitter stick.

    I also love the blender applicator at the other end of the product for when I want a less subtle effect.

      This gives your cheeks a nice glow. Put it on after your blush, gives a nice glow/shimmer to your cheeks.

            This is my favorite Benefit Highlighter. I apply this to the top of my cheekbones, cupid's bow, & chin. I have a deluxe sample of this which did not come with a blender, so I just use my fingers to blend which works just fine. It leaves a natural looking gorgeous glow to my skin & I especially love how it looks on my tanned skin in the summertime. A little goes a long way so even this deluxe sample I have will last forever. And of course the packaging is adorable. I recommend this product!

            I was so excited about this highlighting stick and heard great things about it. The price was a little pricier than I wanted but I bought it anyway to try. It was ok. It was a stick, it went on creamy, and the shimmer was great! I ended up returning it because I found a dupe for it at another store for half the price. But the product itself was great. I just felt it wasn't worth what I paid for it.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

                I will preface this review by saying that I have just about every highter and luminous product out there. This one's just okay. You really need to watch how you apply it because if you're not careful, you will have shiny splotches. Be sure you blend it in carefully, and you might just want to check your image in your car mirror, because you might have a surprise when you go out in the natural light! When used sparingly and carefully, you shouldn't have any problem. That said, I still prefer my Hi-Beam.

                I bought this product to use for highlighting. I wanted a very strong look, but the effect of this product is more subtle. My biggest mistake was buying a shiny product. I thought I would like it being shiny, but it just makes me look greasy and gross. It also sinks into my pores and makes them more noticeable. I also feel like it doesn't blend well, if you try to blend it, the affect is gone.

                I bought this product because a friend suggested it to me. It's difficult to apply correctly. If you apply it wrong, when taking photos with a flash you will look ridiculous. Flashes reflect the exact placement of the makeup, and it's difficult to blend without taking off your other previously applied makeup.

                    Watt's Up looks beautiful on skin of all ages! We suggest applying and blending on these areas to highlight and define your features: to your cheekbones, along the bridge of your nose, and to your brow bones.
