Love that it's:
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!
I really like how easy it is to apply this highlighter and how it sits on the skin.
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.
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
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.
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!
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
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
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.
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! :)
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
It is a really pretty highlighter on my face and like most people, i use my fingers instead of the sponge.
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!
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!
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
I use this product almost everyday. The shine is amazingly subtle while still adding a great glow for year round radiance.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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. :/
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Wow is this a versatile and fabulous product! Swipe some on your browbones, cheekbones and you are good to glow.
Its to smooth & comes off to quickly. This product is for a darker skin tone probably.
This is my second one of these highlights, as my last one had run out after a year. Love it, it is now one of my make up musts!
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.
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.
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!
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.
I got this in my sepora birthday gift and loooove it. when it's gone I will buy more for sure!!!!!
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.
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.
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!
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! :)
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.
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
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!
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
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.
Thank you Benefit for such an amazing product! Very easy to apply, long lasting and amazing natural results! Me and all my girl friends.. We just love it! <3
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.
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!
I love this product it gives a great glow to the cheek bones and brow bones
I think that the real value of this product depends strictly on where you apply it. I like it on my eyebones, but on my cheecks it makes me look like I'm sweating!
Recently purchased and do not regret it, it is a great product with a great champagne colour which works with most of the skin tones.
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.
I quite like its champagne colour very much and, when I apply it on my face, I also like how my face seems to light up. The applicator is also a very good idea. Very good job, Benefit!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
I am in 30,s but after applying this highlighter ,it makes my skin like a baby skin.love to have it in my life.
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.
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. It makes me glow naturally & it's so subtle. It was so sunny today in school & I used it & it showed up SO well! It shows up amazingly no normal lights but natural lights are soooo amazing!!
Ill never be able to explain how amazing this peoduct is. The color is beautiful on all skin tones i can tell. The box it comes in and the package itself! Im in love. The texture of the creamis amazing! So smooth its unreal. It seems like it will last FOREvER too. Definitely worth every cent! Highly reccomend!
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.
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.
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.
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!
I love it, I never before had this beautiful champagne glow in my skin. I love the texture and the little ball shape brush. I am crazy about it (I am crazy about benefit to be honest, every single product is great)!!!!!!!! You have to have it.
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 :)
I love this product. I used it all the time...but my mother luv it so much and she stoled it to me :(
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!
The color is sort of a golden + nudy + pink
I simply love it
At first I was unsure about paying this amount for a hilighter but its so worth it. Its absolutely gorgeous and works so well for winter and summer...... if you are unsure about buying then dont its worth every penny!!
a perfect touch of light for make your face shine!
This is my favorite highlighter by far. I like to use my fingers and blend it under my brow bone and on my cheekbones. The finished look is so natural and gives you that perfect subtle and natural sheen!
Love the soft, golden bronze highlighting affect of tho product. Will NEVER stop using it!
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!
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.
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!
For a christmas gift i recieved a sephora gift card and i knew exactly that the watts up highlighter was what i was going to buy. 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!!
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.
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.
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 :-)
I tried this last week and Bought it today..juz go by any macy's at the mall n juz let them try it on U..You will love it..it's worth the price!
this was the first benefit profit I brought it is smooth and powerful the reason I say powerful is because it will last u so long and u only put on very little of the product I use this everyday I mostly use it under my eyes I love this product!!!!!
I love this highlighter it's amazing I look like a 25 watt lightbulb;)
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!
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.
Love this, it gives the peerfect cheek highlight. I just wish it was less pricey. Besides that its great.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Glides on smoothly, and adds the perfect amount of sheen to brighten up my cheek and brow bones. Color blends perfectly with my skin (Asian, fair-medium skin tone). Love!
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!
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.
A little mascara and a little Watt's up and I am ready to go.... GLOWING... instant uplight! Best product I've discovered yet!
It's all I need... little 'Bad Gal Lash' and 'Watt's up' and I'm done.. I'm in love!
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"
unfourtunatly, i couldnt buy this after i had a benefit makeup makeover. im really sad i couldnt, this product was amazing. it went on smoothly and stayed on smooth. it didnt fade or come off untill i removed it. the shimmer wasnt to noticable but left me with a healthy glow.i will DEFINATLY buy this when i can.
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!
Running on no sleep, hung over and feel miserable. This watt's up highlighter made ALL the difference. Looks like I slept and am full of life...Way to go Benefit. LUV LUV this weapon... I'll be keeping this one in my bag to use EVERY DAY!
Love it! I have oily skin... this product stayed on and looked fresh all day!
I own all the highlighters and this is by far my favorite. I like that it is in stick form than a liquid. The champagne shade is perfect for everyday use in the daytime or at night. Absolutely gorgeous!

Difference between the highlighters
Hi,I have that girl as base which already adds radiance.
I also have girl meets pearl which I mix with my tinted moisturizer and I use high beam over my cupids bow n bridge of nose.
Where shd I use my watts up then? And actually wats the difference between all of them other than colours and texture! I'm so confuse!
I'm Asian with slight yellow undertone but fair skin and big dark brown eyes.
Use watts up on your cheek bones! Apply it at an angle. start a little lower then your temple and to the cheek bones. hope this helps :)
I use "watts up" where the light naturally hits my cheek bone and underneath put some bronzed to contour. I hope this helps!
You can use Watt's Up all over your face. You can add soft definition to your nose, by applying watt's up! down the bridge of your nose and blending. You can glide it on your cheek & brow bones to obtain the perfect glean. The possibilities are endless.

Is the watt's up highlighter oil free ?
No it isn't oil-free.
I have VERY oily skin. Will Watt's Up work for me?
I think so. The product isn't very oily at all, but if you do not want to risk it, aim for either a powder highlight, or a liquid tint-like product, like highbeam. :)
If you do use this on oily skin I would suggest also using a setting powder to help it stay and prevent shine.
Watt's Up is suitable for all skin types.
Can this be used with a powder foundation, since this seems creamy?
It could yes, I would put your concealer, foundation etc all on, then gently run the stick of highlighter over your cheek bones in a line, dont press hard you don't need to. Then, take a finger and gently work the highlighter into your cheekbones in a circular motion but still following the shape of your cheek bones. It never lifts or disturbs my foundation so you should be fine as well :) hope this helps.
I've tried using this underneath regular face powder, and it looks good/natural, so I think this could also work well with a powder foundation. Just make sure to moisturize first before applying (because this could emphasize dry skin). After applying this, ensure to blend the edges using the built-in sponge (or your fingertips) so that you don't look like you have shimmery stripes on your face. And then after blending, you can put on your powder foundation. Hope this helps! :)
I only use a powder foundation (I don't like full foundations, I just do a very light powder one) and I haven't had any problems with it. It's kind of a cream-to-powder type product and once you swipe it, it turns into a powdery sort of glow. Hope that helps!
SURE! Hello Flawless, Playsticks, SKAG... any of them would mix wonderfully with Watt's Up...
does this have any shimmers or glitters?
No glitter and a very subtle sheen, I wouldn't call it a shimmer exactly....more like a glow.
It isn't glittery, it is shimmery and 'glowy'.
Gives a soft natural glow to the face.
No, this highlighter isn't shimmery or glittery. It has a cream to powder finish and gives your complexion a luminous sheen.
I use i'm pure for sure foundation. Will this work on me or is it too dark?
It works on all skin colors! I know that cos all of my girl friends have one, cos I've made them buy it!
No i am extremely pale or fair and Watt up is perfect on me!!!
I have very fair skin, and use the same foundation. I loooove this product, it's a very subtle effect, not too dark at all.
Our soft focus highlighter turns on “watt” ya got with a delicate champagne glow that’s gorgeous. With a cream-to-powder finish...it’s a switch on “wow” for all complexions. You’ll adore the smooth applicator & luminous sheen.
Is Watt's Up good on dry/dehydrated skin?
I have very dry skin and its never caused me any problems! :)
Yes it is! Its very creamy and smooth. I don't have any problems with it, at least.
I had the same problem, but when I used this alongside the total moisture facial cream they complimented each other and helped rehydrate my skin!
Watts Up is great for dry skin as it contains shea butter which helps to moisturize.
Watt's up, high beam, &girl meets pearl which one is most visible?
It's a fight between watt's up and high beam, i guess it depends on how much u will apply. But definitively not girls meets pearl. They are just a tinny touch of glow.
On my very fair skin watt's up! is most visible because it has more color than the others. High beam gives my skin shine and girl meets pearl is barely noticeable if you have a lot of pink in your skin already.
I really like Girl Meets Pearl- its subtle and glowy without sunlight and in the sun it shines gold.
However, I think if you want the most intense one I'd go with high beam.
Watt's Up is pretty subtle. It's fairly colorless but it glows nicely.
I normally wear high beam (which I love) but last time I was at a benefit counter, the sales girl put Watt's Up on me. It's very visible - I really liked it and when I do my next big Benefit order, I'll be buying some.
I think Girl Meets Pearl is the most visible and shining.
Does your makeup work for African Americans???
Watt's Up paired with Hervana are a great mix! Watt's up shows up pretty dramatically on dark skintones, and I haven't found a skin color that Hervana didn't look good on. For a more subtle glow on dark skins, try Sun Beam!
Definitely. I think this would be a beautiful color- especially on African American skin tone.
(Please note that besides the Watt's Up, I started selecting other products below that I thought would be great and started with Blush. Once closed out, I didn't have the option to add more. But obviously there are many options in each of the categories that would look beautiful on African American skin tone.)
Our shades and colors work well on everyone. I suggest you go to a counter near you and have a Beauty artist apply our makeup on you.
