      Just didn't like the way the product went on (looked faked). It seemed cheap and didn,t go on evenly. Needed to be more subtle.

        i use it to highlight my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, and sometimes use a bit to add a shimmer to my eyeshadow. it has a dewy look, my only complaint would be the color is a liiiiitle too orange-y for my fair skin, but that's easily fixable once i blend it with powder highlight.

                    I borrowed this from a friend who raved about it, and sure enough I purchased it a few days later. A little goes a long way, and it's super easy to blend. Glad I added to my collection :)

                          I really enjoy the color and shimmer of the highlighter, although I definitely need a bit of practice with the unusual style of packaging. I think the Watts Up highlighter will be even more brilliant once I figure out exactly how to use it :P

                              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!
