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

      This highlighter is my fave. I have dry skin, so I'm not sure how it would work for my oily pals, but it is AMAZING whether I'm wearing my fave foundations or if I'm rocking more of a natural look. It's just the kick I'm looking for when I want to look like a glowy goddess.

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

      I had this applied at the store, so it was primed and blended to perfection. As the day went on, the product started shifting down my face. By the end of the day my cheeks were just a mess of glitter. I was looking for a highlight that was more natural, this product is not it. It has a lot of shimmer and unfortunately is glittery. Due to the price point, I will be returning it.

      Only good if you don't wear it with any other face makeup. If I put it on over foundation it creates a weird cakey texture. Not easy to blend either. For the price I was expecting more.

            Watched a makeup artist use this product on her client and WOW when she was finished what a difference. Once I commented on how great it looked she shared with me the name "What's Up" and that I could purchase it at Ulta and gave me a few application tips. I love this product! Looks very natural,easy to apply, in small container so easy to throw I purse for touch up but so far I've never had to re-apply during the day. You will love this product!

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

            So creamy and easy to apply. I haven't found anything I like as much as this highlighter stick. Lasts a long time, blends easily, easy application, and great color. I have swapped out many benefit products for cheaper brands but I haven't found anything comparable to this highlihter. Worth the price tag.

                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
