            My boyfriend stole my Ulta list and bought this for me.. Surprised that that happened and surprised at how awesome this product was! When you put it on your nose, you definitely want to pat it in, not just swipe it on. But you can swipe it onto your cheeks :)

                Hi gorgeous!

                Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter is a champagne cream-to-powder stick ideal for soft focus highlighting. High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter is a satin-pink liquid ideal for accenting cheek & brow bones.

              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.

                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!

                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.
