    If you have fine lines it sits in the creases and accuates them. I have very sensitive skin and I had a mild breakout. I do like the way it give a natural glow/shimmer. If you have sensitive skin, don't have fine lines or if you avoid them I definitly recommend it if your want a nice dewey glow.

            Love this highlighter. Awesome application and great packaging. It goes on smooth and looks very natural. Only issue is that I can't tell its on by the end of the day. It wears off by the time I get home from work.

            Best Uses

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

              I bought this as a more natural-looking alternative to the Benefit High Beam highlighter that I've used before, but it is too dark if you have very fair skin. (For reference, I use Tarte's "fair honey" shade of loose powder foundation.) The highlighter showed up like a yellowed gold on my skin instead of a clean highlight. It would probably be beautiful if you have darker skin, but it definitely didn't work for me.

              It is, however, very easy to apply and lightweight.

                      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!
