Watt’s Up is a beautiful and delicate champagne colored highlighter from Benefit. It has a cream to powder finish. It comes in form of a stick. The packaging is gorgeous! Shaped like bulb, the stick is double ended with the highlighter on one end and a blending sponge on the other end.
When I first saw this highlighter stick, I thought it would end up looking fake and shimmery. I was wrong.
It looks very natural. It gives the skin a luminous sheen – a very pretty glow. Benefit recommends it for use on the cheeks and the brow bone but I use it on my cupid’s bow too and along the bridge of my nose.
I sometimes use this product on its own, without any other makeup. I’ve used it with makeup too – it blends well with foundation and lasts all day. If I’m using powder, I dust translucent powder very lightly after applying the highlighter. I prefer using my finger tips for blending this product when I use it over foundation because the sponge applicator that comes with it may end up picking the foundation as well and I don’t like the sight of foundation/makeup smeared sponge tips. I use the sponge applicator when I’m using this product solo.
What I really like about this product is the natural look it gives the skin. I have used other highlighters, and I really like them but this has become my go to product when I want a natural luminous sheen. I know I cannot go wrong with this.
