    This is an amazing stick highlighter. Its easy to glide on and apply just make sure you blend it out or it can look streaky. The color is great and makes me glow. It isn't sticky-dries fast but allows you to blend the edges.

            Can't seem how to make it blend... I've used a sponge, beauty blender and a brush and I feel like wherever you apply it is just sticks and doesn't feather out. There is a sponge on the applicator but I'm not a fan. Maybe I just need to keep working with it and figure out how to make it work for me. Does have nice shimmer.

                I use this product almost every day and I love it because its very buildable and sometimes I opt for a natural look but more often, I highlight my face with a lot of product. Out of all the highlighters I've tried, this is my new favorite!

                    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
