Rated 4.43 out of 5 stars
This is the first highlighter I have ever purchased, I have always been skeptical about using highlighters thinking they will definately just leave me looking oily/sweaty and that throughout the day they will just melt away and start to slide off my face! But.. I couldn't have been more wrong, at least about this highlighter anyway!
I had this put on me at a benefit counter and loved the result instantly! So I bought one! I used it for the first time on christmas day and have been using it ever since every time I apply make-up whether its for a night out or for day time.
I apply this highlighter (over my foundation) along my cheekbones and a little on the apples of my cheeks too, then I apply a small amount on my brow bones and sometimes on my cupids bow. I blend it using my fingers generally as I find I have better control that way and don't disturb my foundation, although the sponge provided is also good at blending. The result achieved, is a beautifully natural looking soft glow to the face. The colour is perfect for all skin tones, blends wonderfully, doesn't look cheap or fake but just like a natural glow. It gives the face a wonderfully sculpted look as well when applied to the cheek and brow bones. Its staying power is AMAZING, I can put this on in the morning and it will still look perfect by night time, even on a night out in a sweaty warm nightclub it stays perfect! Not once has this highlighter ever looked oily or sweaty on me, and not once has it ever started to slide off my face!
I love this highlighter so much! I will definately be repurchasing when this one runs out, not sure i'll ever change to a different highlighter! :)
If you love highlighters, or are wanting to try one for the first time, try this one, you just cant go wrong! :)
being fairly fair skinned, I bought this product not really knowing what to expect (most of the reviews are from medium skinned women). So, here's a small list of pros and cons about buying this is you are a fairer skinned woman.
Pros: its a pretty, shimmery gold highlighter with a velvety texture. You don't need much, so it looks like it will last a while. The gold colour can be used as eyeshadow, which is really nice.
Cons: it is not suitable for dry skin, because it will not blend well and it will make skin drier. It is not suitable for very fair skin (you will have gold streaks on your face). It is a little to pricey. It can be very noticeable and unnatural if you are heavy handed.
Overall, I like this product. I need to be careful with the amount I apply, and, having dry skin, I need to mix it with some moisturizer. I especially like that it can double as creamy eyeshadow. However, fair skinned people beware, this is probably not your highlighter.

Gives a great highlight to cheekbones and eyelids
Cami from Chico
I got this in an Ipsy box and had to purchase the full size! It looks amazing for more natural skin like looks but also looks great for a full face. I do wish they had a pink shade though!
Girl Mom from California
Watts Up is versatile, subtle, and perfectly formulated. The soft color is flattering and can be played up dramatically, or applied as a beguiling glow.
Mimi from Albuquerque NM
This highlights perfectly. Glides on smoothly with the applicator.

My fave. It's perfect for if you like a more natural makeup look. I get so many skin complements when I'm wearing this because it blends so well and just looks like a beautiful natural glow. I even wear it on my eye lids. I get ask if I've just had a facial when wearing. If you use a lot of powder this may not be best for you however, it pairs best with a creamy foundation or none at all but does not do the best when you have used powder. This also is a great color when pail or tan because it is so neutral.
I've had this product for probably close to two years before it has run out and I use it about 3 times a week at least and it has only last run out.

I have been using this for about a week now and I absolutely 💯 love it. Unlike the liquid, this is smoothly applied with no droopy mess, applications are exact, no glittering mess ( great for business to play wear). Plus the sponge tip is a bonus

beautiful color but doesn't stay on for more than an hour or 2. Sponge application is useless as it just removes the product. not worth the price

Not enough glow
oohquebeleza from Ventura, CA
I purchased a Benefit cheek palette several years ago and it came with a mini version of this highlight. Well I've loved it since and haven't found another cream highlight that looks the same. I don't like the very glittery highlight on myself, and this highlight is so perfect. It just gives the skin a beautiful glow. I wish it were a bit more affordable, but I just repurchased during a sale. So worth it!
tori from montana
i love how it easily glides onto your skin, and your able to distribute it without an additional brush or finger. it's also so so pretty, and lasts almost all day!
Laura from Ohio
Never used highlighter before but I love it. It is creamy and light - I use it on eyelids under shadow and above brow. May use it in other areas on dressy occasions
marci from Las Vegas
I swipe this on my upper cheekbones from just the end of my eye up and out to almost my hairline
and i swipe just once down my nose....I have tried powdered hi lighters (alot of different brands) and
this seems to stay the longest and has the best SHINE....
The only thing I don't like is there is a small cap over the product besides the large cap and
the small one tends to have to be chased..sometimes it flies off when I remove the large cap...I also wish it came in different colors
DaisyM from Orlando
This color is amazing nothing I've tried comes close. The actual product is made to be excellent with properties that turn a cream to a beautiful powder that stays all day. Gorgeous
Dahi from Florida
I've always seen this highlighter around but never actually tried it until recently… and I knew instantly my wallet was in danger 🤣🤣 It's a beautiful highlighter that you can adjust. You can make it look softer or more vibrant just by playing with layers and blending. Definitely don't regret getting it❤️
Yaya from Illinois
I wanted a product that helped give me a glow and this absolutely met my expectations. Application is easy, it's a stick and I blend it with my fingers.
Kim from Muskogee, Ok
I love this product. My total was $45 and I think I was supposed to get free gift but I didn't.
Bev from Caldwell Id
Love it it makes my skin look bright and not dull!
MBodine from USA
The best highliter/glow effect. Not overpowering. Just enough for a beautiful glow.
newbie from Nashville, TN
The color and slight shimmer of this product is very pretty and natural looking! It gives me the perfect amount of dewiness for an everyday look without being over the top! However, the attached blender is pretty useless. Instead of blending, it seems to erase the product from my face. My fingers work so much better to blend it out.
Bri from North Carolina
i use this highlight. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. weather i'm doing natural or full glam it is perfect. it Does not lift up the make up underneath. It blends perfectly into the skin and looks like a natural glow from within. I love that you can build this product very easily. i love that it doesn't have glitter. it lasts all day, through 8 hours of school and 2 of tennis, it is still on and many girls at my tennis have begun using it so their makeup stays on through the sweat.
GO BUY NOW! from Texas
Been using for years, it is worth the price I always get compliments on my highlight :)
Kita from Calumet MI
I tried several highlighters from powders to creams and sticks. So many added color or sparkle/glitter, which is definitely NOT what I want. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for!! It applies and blend's so easily. Seems like sooo many have a color and sparkle that REALLY stand out when light hits it. I don't want my highlighter to be a focal point of my face?! Maybe the younger set wants that but I want it to blend/work with my contouring. This is absolutely perfect for me :) It has a sheen and blend's so well it compliments my contouring without "standing out"... Also because you only have to use a small amount it seems it will last forever (I wish, ha, ha). I was a little hesitant because of the price but I'm so happy I took the chance because your actually saving as you won't have to purchase another for a LONG time ;)
Irina from Charleston, SC
I had a mini of this back in the day and it took years for me to use it up. I would always dab this on with my finger for subtle glow. The product isn't too gold or icy, just the perfect in between. I can wear this over liquid foundation, powder, or no makeup at all. It blends beautifully and doesn't leave a chunky highlighter look on my skin. The full-size packaging is a bit bulky for me, but I will definitely be on the lookout for minis (if they still exist)
panda from NC
This works, but its really not the best. You have to apply a lot for it to show up, and its really hard to blend out. I do like the natural glow it gives if you apply a lot of it, but it is definitely not worth the price. If you want to splurge on something, I say chose something else.
