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

      I've been using this highlighter for years. Despite trying powders and other stick highlighters, I keep going back to this one because it is so natural looking and stays on all day. I love the subtle sheen it provides. Very natural and pretty once blended. Glow without looking sparkly! Great on top of lip color (use only in the center) to make lips pop. Overall I'd recommend!

        The pad on the end to blend the product in is useless, however the product blends very well with a finger or brush and lasts forever on the skin.

          I received this as a sample on an order. I used it and loved it right away. I am at the age where my skin has lost its glow. This has put the glow back in without looking sparkly. It looks great under a light coverage foundation. I have already bought the regular size and I'm saving the sample for traveling.

                A little bit of this goes a long way! I received a sample and I loved the little tiny stick!! It's so easy to apply to anywhere I want and blends easily. My favorite way to apply is to swipe onto my finger first and then dab onto the skin. It gives a very soft and beautiful glow and it lasts all day.

                  I got this as a free sample with my benefit purchase and I think I'm in love. This is an AMAZING highlighter and can't wait to buy the full size product. The highlighter has a lot of pigment and is super beautiful for glam looks. I combined it with the Dermablend setting powder for a more natural work -friendly look.

                  My favorite highlighter. Goes on smooth and blends to look really natural. The blender on the bottom isn't the best, very firm. I'm also dissatisfied with the quantity you get for the price.

                    I use this product for a base highlight and use my fenty beauty highlight over it. With out Watts up below it, it wouldn't pop as much and now it stays on longer and glows much more then it would by it self!
