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

    I adore most of Benefit's stuff, but I've given this highlighter more than a fair share of chances and I just can NOT get on board. First of all, don't bother with the blending sponge it comes with; it's awful. Your best bet it rubbing the stick of highlighter on your finger and applying that way. The coverage is really subtle, but my main problem is that it doesn't play well with other makeup. It doesn't apply well at all on top of other products, and especially on the bridge of your nose, expect your foundation and concealer to be budged away when you try to blend the highlighter.

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

        This is such a lovely, neutral metallic shade! I can't say if it'd be perfect for everyone; it's probably too pale for darker skintones. It does not blend well at all, though. If I use it to make stripes, it's great! But I'm not really interested in being a frosted tiger.

                    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.
