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

          I have had the small sample tube of the What's Up highlighter for months, I was thrilled to finally find it in stock at my local ULTA store. When I went to use it I found it very hard to apply. It seemed kind of dry and was disappointed with the sponge as it didn't do much to help blend. Now, I'm hoping the highliter stick will become smoother with time. This prouduct is perfect for contouring..especially the nose. The shimmer lasts all day.

                        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!
