      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

      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!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

      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.

      Not My Favorite But It's Okay

        • Watch How You Apply 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.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

          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.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up:

          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.

          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!

                    With typical daily use, Watt's Up should last approximately 4-6 months.

                    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.
