    I'm almost 66 so I have to be careful with to much shimmer. This is one of my must haves. It brings light to my face but not glaringly. Just a nice hint of shimmer and light. I love,love love this product.

      Might work better for you

      By Jude

      from NYC

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

      Might have not worked great for me because it was so close to my skin tone. It did do as promised and dried down to a powder, but it was so sparkly! The fine glitter also does come off a bit. If you have a darker skin tone than me (which is likely most people) and you're going for something sparkly you'll likely like this, it just wasn't for me.

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

      I received this as a trial size my first time using it. It last forever and I decided to buy the full size version. I like the ease of application better on the trial size. The full size doesn't seem to apply as easy. I don't think the sponge "blender" works very well as it is too small. I use my fingers to blend after I swipe on. I am not sure yet if I will buy again, but the Ulta consultant told me that it lasts "forever" so we will see....

      I use this product in my daily routine, it is pretty versatile from your subtle everyday makeup to glam. I would definitely recommend this product. I usually use it to highlight my inner eye corner, the tip of my nose, cupids bow and my cheek bone. It's a gorgeous product and a must have purchase!

        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.

                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
