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

      This product, itself, is beautiful. I first tried this in a small sample applicator that was significantly smaller and had a tip about the size of a lipstick tube, making it very easy to apply around my eyes. It is never too heavy and works great for daily use (I feel completely comfortable wearing it to my office setting because it is very soft and natural). However, the tip of this applicator is HUGE! Way too big to successfully apply to eyes. It seems like it was designed with the cheeks in mind. If you don't mind blending with your fingers, that shouldn't be a problem, but I was disappointed by its clunkiness...especially considering the price.

            WOW!!! I was so scared to use highlighter, and I am so glad I chose this as my first one :) The ladies at Ulta steered me in the right direction like they always do. I was nervous about blending, and whether it was going to look good, if it was going to stay, if it was TOO MUCH makeup adding this step etc. I can't believe I've lived without it for the last 3-4 years of breaking into the makeup scene.

            Love this product, blend it for day, layer it fornight. It really stays put. My only complaint is that the blending sponge came unglued 2/3 through its use which just made it a little inconvenient, otherwise great product

                I use this by rubbing my fingers on the product, then applying to cheek bones, tip of nose, upper lip and forehead. The warmth of my fingertips allows the product to heat up and apply nicely to my skin. Don't forget to blend after application! You can also add a powder highlight on top to build.

                    Hi gorgeous! I would recommend using our Hoola Quickie contour stick first to define your cheekbones, get a slimmer-looking nose and an overall sculpted look. Our Watt's Up! is a highlighter that you can wear alone or over your makeup. xoxo B
