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

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

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

      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.

      I've heard about this product forever and it's not all it's hyped up to be. It felt really heavy on the skin and felt like I was putting chap stick on my cheeks. Most likely won't repurchase

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

      I really wanted to love this product, but unfortunately I'm too pale. It ended up looking really streaky and orange on my skin and more like a bronzer. When I moved away from the light it was a lot darker then my actual skin tone. Doesn't look like a highlight on fair to light skin. But if you have a tan this would stunning!

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

      Received as a trial size product with a recent purchase. I like it, might purchase one, and find that it is soft-looking and the color is pretty. My only qualm with this product is that it wears off easily. I've tried applying this a few different ways, but it's worn off after a few hours.

      I've been using the Maybelline strobe sticks (have both colors) and it performs about the same as Watt's Up, but I think it stays on a little bit longer.

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

        If you are looking for a natural dewy glow, this is the highlighter for you. It will not give you a dramatic, sparkley, highlighter sheen, but will give you a subtle, natural, healthy glow when light naturally hits your skin. This is for girls who are going for the natural, healthy look.
        After all your foundation, etc. put this on with your finger tip and dab it into your skin, then set it with a translucent powder to not cover any of the glow. Do not use the attached sponge applicator. Apply the product to your finger, and use your finger to apply it.

          As a competitive ballroom dancer, I'm always looking for items that really bring attention. To my appearance. This was so easy to apply and blend. It was even used under my eyes to cover up where some eyeshadow had drifted down and to give me a more energized appearance.

            Okay, I know usually you read the reviews before you buy, but this time I bought first and am so pleased! I went into Ulta thinking I would buy the Pearl girl one but the great sales girl told me this would look great on me. I was hesitant because of the brownish, champagne color--since I am fair with pink tones. I had tried High Beam before, but that seemed like I had to use tons to see it. Now, I realize--if you have pink undertones in your skin--you're not going to be able to highlight with a pinkish highlighter! WattsUp gives the healthy, dewy glow I was after. I do not understand the comments from older ladies who say its just for the young. I am 61--I have been mistaken for my 40s--so maybe its just not good for severely sun-damaged older skin? For me, it looks awesome placed right above a cream pink blush on the top of the cheekbone--gorgeous. Finally found the highlighter for me!

                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

                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!
