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

              This was workable, but for the price, I'd rather buy a creamier or powder highlighter. I found this to be a little hard and not easily blendable. I also felt that the tiny little blender on the opposite site was rough and too small to make a difference.

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

                For some reason this just did not work for me. I have light skin (NC20 in Mac and Deauville in Nars) and for the life of me, I could not get it to show up on my cheek bones or chin - it did show up somewhat on my nose, but I feel that is typical as that is where the light always falls on your face. It didn't matter how much I applied, it just wouldn't show plus with just applying a little bit, it made my foundation look cakey in those areas, which I didn't like. Even though I got it 50% off, which lessens the deal a bit, I am still displeased with it and will definitely not purchase it or use it again.

                  I'm almost 66 so I have to be careful with to much shimmer. This is one of my must haves. It brings light to my face but not glaringly. Just a nice hint of shimmer and light. I love,love love this product.

                    Might work better for you

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

                    Might have not worked great for me because it was so close to my skin tone. It did do as promised and dried down to a powder, but it was so sparkly! The fine glitter also does come off a bit. If you have a darker skin tone than me (which is likely most people) and you're going for something sparkly you'll likely like this, it just wasn't for me.

                    I received this as a trial size my first time using it. It last forever and I decided to buy the full size version. I like the ease of application better on the trial size. The full size doesn't seem to apply as easy. I don't think the sponge "blender" works very well as it is too small. I use my fingers to blend after I swipe on. I am not sure yet if I will buy again, but the Ulta consultant told me that it lasts "forever" so we will see....
