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

    If you are looking for a natural dewy glow, this is the highlighter for you. It will not give you a dramatic, sparkley, highlighter sheen, but will give you a subtle, natural, healthy glow when light naturally hits your skin. This is for girls who are going for the natural, healthy look.
    After all your foundation, etc. put this on with your finger tip and dab it into your skin, then set it with a translucent powder to not cover any of the glow. Do not use the attached sponge applicator. Apply the product to your finger, and use your finger to apply it.

      As a competitive ballroom dancer, I'm always looking for items that really bring attention. To my appearance. This was so easy to apply and blend. It was even used under my eyes to cover up where some eyeshadow had drifted down and to give me a more energized appearance.

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

        Okay, I know usually you read the reviews before you buy, but this time I bought first and am so pleased! I went into Ulta thinking I would buy the Pearl girl one but the great sales girl told me this would look great on me. I was hesitant because of the brownish, champagne color--since I am fair with pink tones. I had tried High Beam before, but that seemed like I had to use tons to see it. Now, I realize--if you have pink undertones in your skin--you're not going to be able to highlight with a pinkish highlighter! WattsUp gives the healthy, dewy glow I was after. I do not understand the comments from older ladies who say its just for the young. I am 61--I have been mistaken for my 40s--so maybe its just not good for severely sun-damaged older skin? For me, it looks awesome placed right above a cream pink blush on the top of the cheekbone--gorgeous. Finally found the highlighter for me!

            If you have fine lines it sits in the creases and accuates them. I have very sensitive skin and I had a mild breakout. I do like the way it give a natural glow/shimmer. If you have sensitive skin, don't have fine lines or if you avoid them I definitly recommend it if your want a nice dewey glow.

                      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!
