Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter:

I actually use this for like an eyeshadow. It gives me that bright look. I got this item as a birthday present and one thing of this lasts me literally a year. I don't really use it for a highlighter, just a natural-look eyeshadow.

        I'm always trying to find a good highlighter to create a strobing effect to my preferred natural and minimual makeup look and this is the best one yet. It provides a natural highlighting shine that is dramatic enough to notice. It catches the light just right so it doesn't make your face look greasy. It glides on so smooth and blends in well. The champagne color looks great on my fair skin. It's a little pricey, but there is a lot of product that I can't imagine ever running out anytime soon. I'm obsessed!

        By EBO

        from mass

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter:

        This highlighter was not really what I expected. I expected it to be much larger but it's TINY and it doesn't blend that well or even go on a lot. Feels like a glue stick. However, the color is nice and it's really good for highlighting nose and Cupid's bow. I recommend a regular powder highlighter though.

            I really like this highlighter, it works wonderfully for concealing dark circles under your eyes too! It has a glitter finish so be careful for over-application. It goes on really smooth and has a smudger on the end so a little goes a long way. My only complaint is that the applicator is very large and this makes it harder for more precise application. I found out about this product through the sample size which was perfect!

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter:

              This highlighter is perfect. I like to apply it with a beauty blender and it looks very natural, like a natural glow. And I like that you can layer powdered highlighters over it or build it up to intensify it. I have oily skin and I had absolutely no problems with this even though it's a cream! Definitely recommend.

                  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.

                  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!

                  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!

                  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.

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.
