Review: Benefit Watt's Up

 Benefit Watt's Up, available at Faces, Sephora, Debenhams and Areej stores for 141 Dhs.

Watt's Up is a "soft focus highlighter for face"

You can see the gorgeous champagne color.

Benefit Says:
Our delicate champagne sheer highlighter turns on “watt” ya got with a luminous sheen & cream-to-powder finish. Glide on your cheek & brow bones…then sculpt with its soft glow blender for a gorgeous gleam.


I Say:
I love this stuff! I actually liked it so much that I convinced a friend of mine to buy it. It really is "delicate". It's not really a heavy, in-your-face-highlighter, it's more of "glow from within" type of highlighter. It makes your features pop, without stealing the show.

A great thing about this highlighter, especially for this region, is that it is pretty much sweat proof. I've worn it all day and night and it managed to really put up a fight.

Watt's Up works great as a brow bone highlighter, it manages to magically make your eyes look twice their size. And it works just as well anywhere else that you put it. It works particularly well when you team it with Benetint on the cheeks.

Because it's such a soft highlighter, you can even wear it during the day when you want to feel super pretty. The texture is very soft, but not too creamy and it dries to an almost powdery finish. I tend to prefer to use my fingers to blend it rather than the sponge, but that's just how I prefer to blend.

Have any of you tried this highlighter?

  6. I had a quick play with this in Faces and it's so pretty. I like how it's almost matte, a bit like lightscapade which I love but am not willing to pay £50 for on ebay!

  8. Yeah it seems pretty strong, but I'm worried the plastic might crack if I drop it from too high.

  9. I don't have high beam, but I did swatch it and this one seems like the shimmer is a lot more subtle. Also, the texture is much less creamy so it's easier to control it.
