By far fave highlight!

Location: Inverness

Watts Up is by far my favourite highlight! It lasts for ages and shows up very nicely. Only issue is the sponge tends to take off foundation when using it but would give 5 stars apart from sponge.

great natural highlight

Location: atlanta

I bought this from ulta when I went last time, and I was extremely excited about it. Over my concealer and under my setting powder, this creates the perfect natural highlight. I imagine this would be great under a vibrant highlight, but I personally don't prefer that look. Perfect for school or anything where you want that suttle glow-from-within look while still looking well highlighted.

Jul 25, 2017

My must have

Location: London U.K.

The reason why I wear this everyday is because it is discreet so not many people notice that I'm wearing it, but still makes my skin pop!

Apr 25, 2017

Subtle but cute

Location: England
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair

The product is subtle but you can definitely build it up. But no matter how subtle it is when you catch the light it's so pretty. I wear it all the time and it's replaced my old favourite highlighter. I wear it everywhere I can, including my collar bone.

Mar 14, 2017

All time favourite!

Location: Cambridge
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “Subtle but effective”

I use this everyday over my foundation, I use it down the centre of my nose, on the centre of my forehead, over my eyebrows, cheek bones and centre of my chin. I put translucent powder on after blending it and it just gives me a lovely glow!

Jan 12, 2017

Very nice!

Location: Earth

I just purchased this product and have tried several ways of applying it. I wear a powder foundation so applying it straight onto my face ends up very cakey. For my routine, I brush a powder brush across the product then apply it to my face. It gives a beautiful shine! I will definitely continue using it!

beautiful colour and light on the skin

Location: UK
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “Illuminating, light, easy to use”

I really like how easy it is to apply this highlighter and how it sits on the skin.

Sep 26, 2016

My favourite highlighter yet

Location: Bristol
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “so easy to apply”

I can't rate this product enough. So easy to apply and just enough pigmentation to make it stand out the correct amount. I've found it super easy to blend in and don't tend to use a great deal of product. Love it for everyday and nighttime use. Oh and the packaging is adorable.

Mar 30, 2016

my absolute favourite!

Location: UK
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “easy to use, Long Lasting, Illuminating”

I can't recommend this product enough, my skin looks healthy, illuminated and dewy. the product is light and not cakey and looks totally natural. my skin is always very dry and this makes it look soft, smooth and glowing. I use it daily and am always getting complimented on it

Mar 21, 2016


Location: Wales
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “Illuminating”

I really love this product it gives a nice highlight to the cheekbones however what disappoints me about it is the packaging. The sponge tip is not very good and if used leaves streaks on the face and moves your make up underneath, now I am not sure wether this is down to me using the sponge tip wrong or not. Overall very good product but be careful not to apply to much at first as it can be quite hard to blend.

Mar 14, 2016

Glowing beautifully

Location: Tunbridge wells
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “small but holds lots of highlighter”

This product is great on any type of skintone. It gives full coverage and gives a beautiful glow to the skin. The buffer is very useful and the product blends into make up easily. It's great and I recommend buying it! I use it everyday and always get complemented on it!

Feb 22, 2016

Almost perfect

Location: uk
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “one of a kind”

I love it however it is very pigmented and takes a while to blend out so maybe its not for an everyday use but it is perfect for every time you want to put extra effort in to your makeup

Location: New jersey

This is a really cute highlighter it's buildable but the sponge applicator is really bad I just use my fingers but I would recommend

Oct 30, 2015

Not that great for extreme pale skin

Location: Undisclosed

I was told it would match my skin colour, but it's too dark for extreme pale skin. I still use my stick as an eyeshadow, but it's too dark to properly highlight. Very shiny,metallic-like as well.

Oct 26, 2015


Location: England

I've never used a highlighter before so i was apprehensive about buying this but it didn't let me down. The shape means for an easy application, however i don't use the sponge on the end i prefer to gently rub in with my finger. But other than that it gives a gorgeous natural look along with a bronzer! :)

Sep 25, 2015

Best highlighter

Location: New Jersey, USA

Bes highlighter EVER!!! I get so many compliments on my glow by so many people. It is so easy to use. Def a must a have!

Sep 17, 2015

Just amazing

Location: Gold Coast QLD, Australia

So, the only highlighter I've used before was a sample of high beam, but it wasn't really right for me. So I bought Watt's Up, and it's amazing, I highly recommend it, it just lifts you up perfectly and brings you look from dull to alive instantly. If you're looking for a highlighter get this, I personally think it's much better than a liquid one.

Sep 9, 2015

Best highlighter I've ever had

Location: England, UK

I absolutely love this highlighter, the texture and shape makes it so easy to apply, and it glides easily on. I use this on my cheekbones with hoola in the hollows on my cheeks, and the amount of compliments I've had since using it is amazing. I love that it is a neutral shade with no pinky tones, so it looks natural on, but still glows in the light.

Jul 30, 2015


Location: Undisclosed

I absolutely love this product! Its such good value for money and lasts so much longer than any I've tried. It gives your face a nice warm glow where it is champagne coloured however it is still natural, also the applicator on the end is very helpful! Love this product and will definitely buy it again!

Jun 19, 2015


Location: New Mexico

I'm in love with this product! I used it over my foundation and under my blush for a soft, dewy, fresh glow, and I can't get over how simple yet beautiful it looks. My go-to highlighter to wake up my face!

Jun 6, 2015

amazing highlighter!

Location: England, UK

this is incredible. I never considered using highlighters but got this in the advent calendar last year - definitely buying it again! it just really brightens up your upper cheek bone complexion and makes you look more radiant. It is also great partnered with high beam. The product lasts a long time so is definitely worth the buy. My skin is quite pale and doesn't look too dark or silly like I find some bronzers do!

Mar 5, 2015

Really pretty

Location: UK

It is a really pretty highlighter on my face and like most people, i use my fingers instead of the sponge.

Feb 22, 2015

Great highlighter

Location: Great Britain, United Kingdom

Even though the colour in this product is a little dark for my skin tone, I still use it regularly as it has a really nice shimmer to it which looks really nice on my cheek bones and on my brow bones!

Location: Chicago

Best highlighter EVER. I have pretty fair skin and this gives a soft, dewy effect on my skin. I love contouring my face and have been told I'm very good at it--would highly recommend!

Dec 15, 2014

Works for pale skin!

Location: New Zealand

I got a sample of this ages ago and sort of dismissed it as it was cream so I was sure I wouldn't be able to put it on over my powder and I'm soooo pale I was sure it would look orange on me. Just recently I was introducing a friend of mine to Benefit and was showing her my collection and how to use each one and I used the Watts Up over my powder and it looked AMAZE. I've been using another (expensive!!!) powder highlighter but it doesn't look nearly as good as the Watts Up. It really does look softly lit without any trace of oily ness and went on top of my powder so nicely - buying a full size immediately! A fantastic product to use for mid day touch ups it just looks awesome

This highlighter is perfect. So easy to apply and gives off such great shine

Oct 26, 2014

Amazing :)

Location: Australia

I use this product almost everyday. The shine is amazingly subtle while still adding a great glow for year round radiance. Love it

Oct 21, 2014


Location: Suffolk, UK

I LOVE this highlighter! The creamy texture makes it so easy to apply and the packaging is lovely! I use my fingers to blend instead of the sponge at the end of the product as I find it works better. It creates a gorgeous, sultry look and gives the illusion of cheek bones. I have very light skin and highlighters tend to look ridiculous on me but this is just perfect. I can't fault it even after all the years I've used it there's still no product on the market which matches this in my opinion! My clients love it just as much as I do!

Jul 25, 2014

metallic effect but also a bit bronzing

Location: The Netherlands

I have had better highlighters. This one is really shiny, almost metallic like. Though it's not as light as I expected to be. It kinda gives me a bronzed glow, not a big fan of shiny bronzers since my skincolour is a pale yellow. (half asian) I expected the product to look a little more like Oh La Lift. The under eye brightener, but it's darker. I don't use the brush. I would only use it to get product off.

Jun 12, 2014

perfect highlighter

Location: Colorado, USA

this is such a great product! I use it on my cheek bone, under my brows and on the bridge of my nose, it gives a natural highlight but still enough glow to be noticed!

May 31, 2014


Location: St. Louis, MO, USA

I absolutely love this product! I received the travel size version in a kit and bought the full size straight away! It's the first highlighter that I have ever really used. It has great blendability. I do have to say that I prefer the packaging on the mini size over the full size. I do not use the sponge, and find the actual package to be weird. The product is a win though. In the future I would be more likely to purchase sets that include the small size product though just because I prefer the packaging on it.

Apr 19, 2014

i really want to love it

Location: Undisclosed

i want to love it and buy this product but every time i try it it makes my skin look dry, i have dry skin and i do not want to enhance it, but the packing and everything looks so great!

Apr 5, 2014

Great first highlighter!

Location: MO

Beauty confession: this is the first highlighter I have ever bought. What a great first choice! I definitely recommend this product, especially to anyone who has never used a highlighter or wants something really easy and foolproof to apply. The shade is so soft, flattering and easy to blend (I do usually use my fingers rather than the attached sponge). I usually apply it to these areas: under eyebrows, on cheekbones, down bridge of nose, on cupid's bow. It gives you a beautiful glow!

Feb 18, 2014

I wasn't impressed! :(

Location: Virginia

This was my very first purchase from benefit & I really was not impressed. For me it was as dark as a bronzer & my skin isn't even pale--it's just light. I'm sad because there's really no way for me to get any use out of it because it is too dark. I tried it over a mineral foundation & it made my skin look dry, flakey and a cakey. I noticed some sheen & a little sparkle to the product, but overall the "highlighting" aspect is not very noticeable. :/

Feb 13, 2014

Wear Everyday

Location: Brisbane QLD, Australia

I love love love this product. Like really love it. I have a fairly medium skin tone, more on the "fair" side, and this adds the perfect amount of "shine" dimension to my cheek bones & other highlight zones. The cream goes on very smooth, and is easy to brush around with your fingers or the sponge it comes with. I normally never use the sponge if I have put this on over my make up as I find the sponge ends up removing it. Overall I would recommend to anyone looking for an easy and beautiful highlighter that you can swish on and instantly look more fabulous!

Great Highlighter - Easy to use

Location: Houston, TX, USA

This is a great highlighter. Blends easy with skin tone. Very easy to use and comes with a blender on the end. I love this stuff. The only downside is I am oily and have large pores and even after using Porefessional, where ever I apply this, my pores stand out. The pore minimizing products help, but they still stand out a little more where this is applied. I'm going to continue to use it though, because it is a great product. I will do some change up on my skin care regimen to see if that fixes the problem.

Location: Riyadh Saudi Arabia

I just cant rave enough about this product I only got this a couple weeks ago and I absolutely love it ! I have fair-medium skin so the champagne color is perfect for me, and in addition to the tops of my cheeks, I also use it to highlight the inner corners of my eyes, and sometimes as an eyeshadow.

Jan 31, 2014

Absolutely gorgeous

Location: Plano, TX, USA

I had a hard time deciding between this and the high beam. High beam is more of a pinky highlight and this has more gold. I love using this after my foundation to add so more color and life into my makeup, especially when my foundation can wash me out. I get so many compliments when wearing this and it looks amazing paired with the coralista boxed powder! The sponge on the end is not good for blending, i find it turns out best when i use my fingers. My new favorite part of doing my makeup is applying this!

Jan 11, 2014

Love it

Location: Brisbane QLD, Australia

I have all of the highlighters that Benefit has to offer and this one is probably my favourite. Love the colour and i love that it's not liquid as I have very oily skin so the cream works better for me. It goes on beautifully also. Would definitely recommend this product.

Dec 31, 2013

Great when i have a tan!

Location: Sydney NSW, Australia

I have very pale skin so i wasn't sure about how this would go with my tone. I tried it when i had no tan and i think it made my skin look a little oily so i put it away until i had a tan for summer and i decided to try it again. It looks so awesome when i have a deeper skin tone! It gives me such a gorgeous glow that i just adore. I also received a few comments on how great my skin looked the first day i had it on. So i really like this but i think it suits a darker skin tone than my pasty white complexion.

Dec 16, 2013

Love it!

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA

I love this highlighter! I usually prefer liquid ones but this one is super creamy and blendable. Definitely recommend! Check out a tutorial of me using this down below!

Nov 13, 2013

From dull....to FAB!

Location: Ontario, Canada

The problem I have after I apply my makeup is that sometimes it looks too matte and it accentuates the lines in my face that I don't want accentuated. I dab and blend a little of this over the make up on my face and problem solved!! I absolutely adore this product...definitely a must-have!

Oct 26, 2013

Highlight Of My Life!

Location: Sydney NSW, Australia

I adore Watt's Up! The golden champagne colour is so complimenting on my skin tone, and the velvet-like finish is so beautiful, it doesn't leave me looking oily or shiny. I love that it compliments the Box O' Powders I wear on a regular basis (Rockateur, Dallas, Sugarbomb & Hoola), and gives my skin a rejuvenated natural glow. The only downside that Watt's Up has from my point of view is the sponge applicator, I find it wipes off not only the highlighter but also my foundation. I use my fingertips instead. I apply Watt's Up to my cheekbones, down the centre of my nose, and occasionally use it on my brow bone. With the remaining product left on my fingertips, I gently sweep it along my cupid's bow. Very little waste from a very big product! Love it!

a great and user friendly highligher. love the soft finish and and healthy glow it gives.

A lot darker than expected

Location: Brantford, ON, Canada

I was so excited to purchase this because I've wanted a really nice highlighter for ages. I tried some on my hand in sephora and noticed it was a lot darker than I thought it would be. I purchased Girl Meets Pearl instead and actually got a sample of this with the purchase, so I gave Watt's Up a second try at home on my face. It ended up looking like I put bronzer on the top of my cheeks. I'm relatively fair skinned but my face is still a little tan from the summer, so this probably would work best on someone with a pretty decent amount of tan on them. The formula is still really nice, but if you know you're one of those ladies like me who have fair skin, maybe pass on this.

Sep 7, 2013

Love it

Location: Gloucestershire, UK

It illuminates your face and adds shimmer to your cheeks and eye area. Only a small amount is needed for great result, it's gorgeous!

Aug 22, 2013

Love! Love! Love!

Location: Los Angeles, CA

I got this with the mascara with my rewards point a few months ago and I'm hooked. I love it so much! Makes me feel luxurious almost.

Aug 21, 2013

Love it!

Location: South London, UK

This is such a gorgeous product. A perfect highlighter for my skin, which I particularly use along my cheekbone. It is so smooth & silky, with a beautiful golden champagne shine that brightens up my complexion even on the most dullest of days. I usually pair it up with a box 'o powder that I choose for the day, mostly I use 'Bella Bamba' which I find compliment each other perfectly!

Aug 19, 2013


Location: Philadelphia, PA, USA

I love the color and pigmentation of this product, I am very hesitant to use it though because it seems to end up taking off my foundation, leaving me splotchy.

Jul 29, 2013

Packaging could be way better

Location: Canada

I was totally prepared to love Watts Up but I think I've come to realize that maybe I'm better off with powder products. I find that in trying to blend this powdery cream product, I end up sort of rubbing off my foundation and ending up with a patchy mess. The sponge tipped applicator for Watts Up is pretty useless, folks - far better to use your fingers or a brush. And the lid that covers the product does not screw on securely, which is another downside - less "cutesy" but more effective packaging would be an improvement. This is a good highlighter and I do use it on my cupid's bow and a bit on my brow-bones but as I cheek highlight, I just don't have the "smarts" to use this well.

Jul 12, 2013


Location: Atascocita, TX, USA

I love the glow to my cheeks, and I went ahead and added to my forehead and chin giving it a great complexion glow and smooth look...

Jul 10, 2013

Perfect for my skin type and tone

Location: Orange County

This highlighter is great. I'm 7 months pregnant and starting to get "fat face." This has done a great job, along with Hoola bronzer, helping me find my cheekbones during this puffy time! The color is great, I found the other highlighters too pinky, but this one is good for my skin- looking very natural. I have olive undertones with freckles. It also lasts all day.

Jul 3, 2013


Location: Chicago

I have tried almost every highlighters on the market, and this is one of the nicest I have seen. The champagne color is especially pretty in the summer and it goes on so nicely. I have already recommended it to some friends.

Jul 2, 2013

LOVE this!

Location: Atlanta, GA

Wow is this a versatile and fabulous product! Swipe some on your browbones, cheekbones and you are good to glow.

Jul 2, 2013

Maybe for a sun tanned face

Location: Alaska, USA

Its to smooth & comes off to quickly. This product is for a darker skin tone probably.

May 12, 2013


Location: London. UK

I'm so impressed about how good this product is. I absolutely love the delicate shade that provides amazing glow. Works best with darker bronzer and peachy blusher, giving flawless and beautiful cheeks.

Watts Up is awesome!

Location: Chicago, IL, USA

Originally, my older sister had been using Watts Up. One time, when she was out of the house, I tried it on, and gosh it looked fab! I kept using it from her for a while when I finally got my own bottle. This stuff is just great. I can't get enough and the name is great, too.

Mar 29, 2013

The best buy! Absolutely in love

Location: Undisclosed

What's up is the best make up purchase I could enjoy. It last whole working day and when reapplied makes my skin radiant, fresh and dewy. Looks amazing on photos as well. Definitely will buy again and again!

Mar 16, 2013

pleasant surprise

Location: Los Angeles

I usually avoid highlighters in this shade but I rec'd one as a gift and thought eh, why not?? I was pleasantly surprised. First of all it's beyond easy to apply and looks amazing as the highlighter for my eyeshadow under my eyebrows and collarbone area, but not so much on my cheeks and that's ok.

Mar 1, 2013

Love the natural glow!!!

Location: Chicago

I got this in my sepora birthday gift and loooove it. when it's gone I will buy more for sure!!!!!

Feb 17, 2013

pretty but feels heavy

Location: San Diego, CA

Watts up has a really pretty glow, and it's very nicely packaged, but after a couple of hours it feels heavy, almost like a caked-on feeling. I got this as a gift, and probably will not buy again when this runs out. It's lasted me nearly two years, so I know I'm not using too much product. Benefit has other really nice highlighters that I'm more keen on.

Feb 10, 2013


Location: London, UK

I really wanted this, after reading so many good reviews. I'm pretty pale, and when I used it it just came out too orange and sparkly, which is never a good look. It's not so bad when it's blended out, but then you can't really see it. it's not bad, but I think it would suit people who are more tanned.

Jan 25, 2013


Location: San Diego, CA, USA

I thought this highlighter was amazing! It blended beautifully to give the most perfect natural glow to your face, and never looked shiny in a greasy was (I have combination skin). I unfortunately lost mine recently and I just feel like crying but I will re purchase!

Jan 3, 2013

Perfect Highlighter!!

Location: Belfast, UK

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! :)

Gives a natural glow~

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

It's easy to apply, gives a natural glow. but its effect really depends on your skills and how to apply it. it can look bad if you put it on the wrong area of the face. I usually put it on my cheekbones and the nose and blend it in with my fingers. The stick area is fairly big, so can be hard to use on small areas, such as under the brow.

Dec 29, 2012

My favourite

Location: Devon, UK

I have always been skeptical about using highlighters, I had always assumed that they were pointless. However, the difference it makes to your face after application is amazing!! I always use it around my eyes and cheekbones; cupids bow; and down the middle of my nose

Dec 26, 2012

Wonderful, easy to use highlighter!

Location: Paris, Texas

I admit that the very idea of highlighters made me uneasy when I first started seriously considering wearing makeup. To me, the idea of highlighter was synonymous with a shiny, oily looking face, so I was always skeptical of trying them, but when I saw some online photos of people using Watt's Up, I decided to give it a try. From the first swipe, I was absolutely in love. It goes on SO smooth and it's not at all a sticky, oily look - it's a very natural looking, subtle glow that makes you think of just finishing a day outside in the springtime with your friends. It gives you that lively, warm, youthful look that seems to fade away a little as you become 20-something. It's incredibly easy to use - you just swipe the stick where you want it and use the nubby end to blend it in. I usually swipe on each cheekbone and down the nose and blend it, then I dab a tiny bit on my finger to put on my browbones and inner eye. The glow it produces is VERY natural and long lasting. It's not shiny and sparkly, but with a little layering of it, it could easily go to a nighttime setting but I definitely prefer it for a natural daytime glow. The only con about this that I could possibly find is that the stick is fairly large, making the application a little clumsy in smaller areas like the browbone or inner eye, but it's simple enough to dab with your finger on those areas. I really like the stick form for ease of application on the cheek and nose, which is where I focus most with this product anyway. This is DEFINITELY a must have for me and I HIGHLY recommend it!

Oct 29, 2012

Love this product!

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

I can't belive this product hasn't made to the top seller yet! It is a excellent product, easy to use and gives you great natural looking skin. My colly even said to me once" what happeend to you chick? Your skin is growing!!" And that is my secret weapon

Oct 8, 2012

exactly what I was looking for!

Location: San Francisco, CA, USA

I love this! I tried it on my hand at the store and I was pretty unsure about it, but I recently got a full size of it with my Perk Up and Away kit. It is gorgeous! I just apply a little to my cheek bones and brow arch and blend with the little sponge tip (it's a great shape, by the way). The colour blends perfectly and gives me a lovely glow.

Sep 6, 2012

I looooooove watt's up!

My favorite highlighter..it's not too gold, it doesn't look artificial in my skin tone, and I can build layers for a night look, or use it very lightly in the morning, it's beautiful.

Aug 14, 2012


Location: UK

i have high beam but i'm just too lazy to blend it as it requires quite a lot of blending. I was in the shopping centre with my friend the other weekend and i wanted it for a long time, so i bought it! I quickly undone the packaging when i got home (which i must say is so cute& fancy), and went ahead and applied it on my cheekbones. This is one of the prettiest highlighters ever, it doesnt make you look sweaty, or look as if you have a 5 year olds makeup on. The colour is perfect which would suit any skintone. The sponge at the other side doesnt bother me i think its good. I blend it with my fingers and then the sponge to even out the edges. If your wanting a good highlighter and don't mind splashing the cash, then this is the one your looking for. Definitely worth the money and perfect for the cold weather!

Beautiful Long Lasting Highlighting

Location: Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK

Lovely use once throughout in the morning and lasts all day. Completely lights up face, the product lasts for months too, well worth the money.

I love this product. I thought it would be too warm for my basically vampirish complexion, but it looks amazing. The price is very high but thankfully i bought it in the states. I would recommend it more for night and with a full face of makeup and not by itself.

Location: London, UK

This product is AMAZING! I have never used a highlighter before, so I decided to give this a try and I'm hooked! I always get compliments about my checks when I put it on and it makes my skin look stunning. However, I have to be careful that I put it on in the right places and use my fingers to apply it otherwise I look shiny and its not a good look! I am definitely re-purchasing this product it is worth every penny!

Soft finish

Location: NY

Watt's up buttercup. This does the trick when you want a nice glow, that's soft and looks to be coming from within. Has less pink undertones in my opinion. Don't really need the blendable end, wish it came with just a tube of product because it blend with other tools or my fingertips anways. Make the packaging like That Gal and it's solid.

Dewey fabulous skin in a tiny cute applicator

Location: Seattle, WA, USA

I love this product! I have super dry skin that has no natural glow to it. A few swipes of Watt's Up and I have a glow that could compete with a pregnant woman! It's super smooth and blends in effortlessly, I couldn't be happier.

Gives me a radient glow.

Location: Georgia

I love this highlighter! I use it every day and it gives me a beutiful, natural glow that goes on smoothly and blends easily into my skin. I am a dancer and when I use it on stage the spotlight catches it and makes me gleam above all of the other ballet dancers. I love it!

Perfect for my fair skin tone!

Location: Melbourne, FL, USA

I love this highlighter! I bought it thinking that I would try it out and maybe wear it on days when I wanted to look extra polished. After one use, I got hooked. Now I wear it every day. I actually got compliments on my skin the first day I used it, and that rarely happens! I am so impressed. I can't believe it took me this long to find this product, but it is amazing.

May 7, 2012


Location: Ohio, USA

I received a free deluxe sample of this and I'm glad I didn't purchase it. The sample is going to last for me a bit since I don't use much and I don't use this particular highlighter all the time. It has a good color and it's shiny and a little bit goes a long way. However, it's not my favorite highlighter and I don't think I would ever spend that much on it. I also had a sample of Girl Meets Pearls, also okay but I think I'll stick with the mini deluxe tubes versus paying full price for one since they do last a long time. Not sure that my money is best spent on the highlighters. I would rather spend my money on their other products.

Location: Manila

So far this is the only highlighter I've tried that applies easily on top of powder. Doesn't cake at all. Gives the perfect glow (subtle, natural looking, dewy without looking wet) and comes in the perfect color that works with all skin tones (nobody goes wrong with champagne). Oh and this is not glittery or sparkly. A little goes a long way. Best highlighter in my bag.

Easy to use and fun to wear! The color is great and can be used on so many skin tones. I almost never leave the house without wearing at least a little of this.

Location: Scotland, UK

After being a religious user of high beam I thought I would mix things up by trying Watts up! And I can confirm I was very happy with the results. Very easy to apply and the results are instant when applied over foundation under the eyes giving an instant WOW effect and hiding the signs of fatigue!! Also looks amazing in pictures so slap on some extra before going for a night out! One of my favourites!

I love this product & I love the colour of this! I use this EVERY day now & i'm not planning on changing it!! It's super amazing & j just can't live without it.

Location: Dublin, Ireland

This makes all the difference to a matt face. It blends really well, wears really well but gives great lift. I've always been a fan of Benefit highlighters but this is the winner. Also, it's lasting very well so it feels like good value.

Mar 5, 2012

Awesome highlighter!

Location: Manila, Philippines

This is the first highlighter that I've ever used, and I don't think I'll ever switch to another. It's easy to apply, and the soft glow blender allows me to "customize" Watt's Up's glow. It makes me look radiant and in photographs, I don't look shiny or greasy...only glowing. :) Also, when I'm in a hurry, Watt's Up doubles as a contouring trick for me: I swipe it down the middle of my nose and then sculpt the sides, and voila! My nose instantly looks better.

MUST HAVE make up tool

Location: LEIGH ON SEA

I used this for the first time this morning - and the first person I met asked what I had on my face as my skin looked so amazing and glowing. It's a MUST HAVE tool and I think it could be used on its own without any other make up and you'd look gorgeous. Worth every penny, LOVE IT.

Feb 24, 2012

I most often use this product on my cheek bones but it can also work on brow bones, eyelids, temples and the cupid's bow. Great for going out but a but much for everyday. Looks great with bella bamba!

Soft glow!

Location: Jakarta, Indonesia

My favorite highlighter to date! Love the champagne color, suitable for a lot of skin tones and shades. This highlighter looks even more amazing on the skin in low lighting rooms. You don't need a lot of this, just a bit, blend away and voila! You get a glow that is subtle, not over the top and simply highlights your best features. Benefit's soft focus description definitely describes this product very well. I apply and blend this with my fingers (I don't use the sponge), to control the amount of glow that I want. I wear this everyday now and it seems it's going to last for a long time. I wanted this since its launch, and I can proudly say that I don't regret it :)

Great highlighter for the face!

Location: Malaysia

i have never really used highlighters on my face before but I must say, I never leave home without using Watt's Up. It instantly brings a glow to my face (without overdoing it) and it is so fast and easy to use. Just 2 swipes and I'm ready to go. Love the texture of it that makes it easy to glide on cheekbones and easy to blend. Love love love!

Love it, love it, love it! Amazing highlighter & looks fabulous with all your blushes! I love to put it on top of my cheek bones & then put a blush over the top & under it! It highlights my cheeks perfectly & adds another dimension to my blush! I love the champagne colour & it feel wonderful when I wear it! A truly amazing product!

Lights go on!

Location: Forest Hills, NY

Tried this out and I was a little wary. But it was actually amazing. Felt SO light, but highlighted perfectly. I also used it to brighten under my eyes and it really made my eyes pop! The only thing I didn't really care for was the sponge on the end. It was good for a couple of times, but for the most part it was ineffective and it was full of product very quickly and it was hard to clean. I would rather use my fingers or a brush.

Location: Plymouth, UK

I got this as a gift from my Mum for my 18th birthday just over a week ago, and I love it! I've worn it every day, perfect for casual wear and when I dress up. It didn't make my face oily, and just gave a lovely glow, and got lots of compliments. I definitely recommend this to everyone!

I have basicly looked at all of the ratings and watched videos and i have been wanting to try this out for a long time! I dont have it yet but it is being shipped and i will have it soon! I have pail skin and really want something that will show off my features expesionally in the cold winter. Im so excited to try this product out and cant wait!!

Jan 13, 2012

LOVE it!!!

Location: Houston, TX

This is hands-down my fav highlighting product. I am very fair-skinned, and it works well on me. The color is gorgeous. I just swipe a SMALL amt at the top of my cheekbones, bridge of nose, and above my brows, then blend with my fingers. My only complaint is that the sponge applicator on it seems to remove my foundation. But I have found that blending with my fingertips works just fine.

Jan 10, 2012

Great highlighter!

Location: Chicago, IL, USA

I was introduced to this product at a special holiday event at my local Benefit shop. I loved the way it looked during my makeup application, and purchased it. I've been using it daily, and love the look! It's great on the cheekbones and bridge of my nose, and blends very easily with the applicator. The highlight last all day. I wear it on top of my foundation and blush.

Jan 9, 2012

WOW! Must have product!

Location: Paris, France

I never thought about buying this product, but a really lovely sales assistant for Benefit in South London put this on me and since there's no going back!! It's the PERFECT everyday and evening glow. It makes me look peachy, bright and awake. The champagne colour is perfect for my skin. You get a huge amount of product for your money and I can tell that it will last a very long time. I put this on everyday without fail, whether I use a tinted moisturisor or foundation or not. Beautiful product! I've converted a friend too :-)

Location: MA

Being a big benebabe from way back, I can say I've used EVERY highlighter they've launched since retired favs Mr. Frosty and Gilded. Watt's Up is a beautiful champagne shimmer that really looks good on most every skin tone. Try blending it with a stippling brush for a seamless glow!

Dec 25, 2011


Location: Toronto, ON, Canada

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.

This is brilliant, first time i'm using a highlighter as never saw a real need, but it looks fab on, not overly dramatic, but gives you a lovely glow. It also lasts a long time on your face. Not too sparkly so you dont look like you are wearing too much make up during the day. Yep, pretty perfect.

new type of illuminator

Location: S.Korea

it's been pretty frustrating highlighting my nose(being asian, shining up my nose is as important as putting on concealer under my eyes...:p) with illuminater that's in powder or liquid, cuz often they make my make up too dry or too heavy. but watt's up can come right after my foundation and nothing have to come afterwards to correct anything! btw, my tip is don't put too many layers of watt's up cuz it may get oily if you do.

Watts Up = The New Glitter

Location: San Francisco, CA

A soft alternative to glitter. That's my description of watts up. I looooove how you glow with it and it's perfect for girl's night out or clubbing. The foam thing on the other side is pretty useful too. Thumbs up!

Nov 26, 2011


Location: California

I tried this on at Sephora. Um.....Uh-Uh. Did not work for me. I tried it and since it is champagne and not totally translucent it showed up with this too-much-foundation oily type sheen over my skin. It is definitely glowing and the texture is nice, but I'll stick with Girl Meets Pearl.

Nov 22, 2011

This product gives the perfect glow to any face

Location: San Francisco, CA

I love that this product is not liquid and is easy to apply and blend, allowing you to give yourself as little or as much highlighting as you desire. If you're feeling a little drab or pale, just a touch of this highlighter brightens your whole face and makes you look fresh and glowing. It's definintely one of my favorite products that Benefit makes and I would recommend this beautiful color to anyone!

Location: Orange County, CA

It would be perfect but I find it a little oily if you put too many layers of it. However, highlighters aren't meant to be caked on but just a little warning if you try to do that. Other than that, this is my new HG highlighter and I don't have to use a bunch of different highlighters to achieve the effect this gives me!

Location: Raleigh

You must be the exact shade for this product to look right. It has the ability to be a great highlighter, but it genuinely fails to do it's job. It looks too shiny on most women and sometimes it wipes their makeup right off. It's okay, but I would never recommend it.

i have dull skin. and i have tried every product in the make up world, that would bring a natural glow to my face, with out making my skin look oily or irratate it. THIS PRODUCT IS ABSOLUTLY AMAZING!!! i was hooked from the first time i used it. i use it on my eyebrow bone to high light my eyes, on my forehead where the sun naturally hit ur face (so at night it literally looks like the sun is still with u) ANNND on my cheeks, it gives a great allution, making me look like i have movie star cheek bones. I would recomend this to anyone, who wants that "Hollywood/ magazine shot,look"

Great product, I am completely satisfied!

Location: Springfield, MO, USA

I knew I would like this product before I ever purchased it. The finish is velvety smooth, not greasy at all. I have fair skin, so this added a hint of color and looked very natural. I love the 'lit from within' look and this definitely helped me achieve that. I still use High Beam, but this is definitely a second in my highlighting routine. I love Watt's Up and I definitely recommend trying it!
