              I was really excited to get this product because of the hype but I've been conflicted while using it. The pigmentation is really nice but you have to press hard for it to actually come off which usually causes my bb cream or foundation to smear/smudge due to the pressure. I've tried waiting for my face to dry longer and it doesn't seem to help. I've settled with having to smear the product onto my finger and then onto my face. I also don't understand the point of the sponge on the other side because it doesn't seem to blend at all, it just moves the product around and smears my make up. If i'm doing this wrong, please help! hahaha due to these issues I won't repurchase this (unless I learn my technique is wrong).

                I am in love with this item. I tried a sample size before and decided to purchase the full size just because its the most natural looking highlight ever. Its super easy to apply and doesnt look streaky or frosty at all. Will repurchase over and over again

                      The highlighter stick is nice and easy to use. Although the large size of the stick prevents you from easily being able to highlight small spaces such as your cupid's bow. But the real failure with this product is the entirely unnecessary blender on the other end of the stick. It is extremely difficult to blend with the blender.

                          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!
