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

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.

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

            My skin isn't super fair but I am usually one of the lighter shades of foundation/concealer usually. But I feel like this highlighter is something that would be flatting on most skin tones. I also have pretty normal skin, kind of on the dryer or more sensitive side, but nothing serious. This highlighter has neverrrr given me issues. I'm 22 and I know that everyone loves the insane highlight right now but it's just not practical to me and it tends to show a lot of texture. I do have other highlight products, but this has been my go-to every day highlighter for years now. I have probably used this for like 350 days out of the year for the past 5 years. and I'm only on my second "tube" of it. Thats probably an over-exaggeration but it lasts a longgg time and a little goes a long way. I prefer to use my finger for it; I find the foamy thing pointless but thats the only "bad" thing I have to say about this product. I never use it like a glue stick (lol), like I said I use my finger. I usually just touch my finger to it and then rub that in. I love this so much for some reason and I wouldn't want to go without it. Would definitely recommend!!

              I wanted a highlighter to use when I go out in the evenings. I had thought a powder product would be good - but the make-up artist suggested this creamy product for my dry skin. It looks really amazing!

                Easy application, nice highlights without being heavy, really easy to blend if you get heavy handed. I'm a busy mom of three and a 5 minute face has to be more like 3 minutes. This is a great product and has actually reduced the number of products I use.

                      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
