Benefit's Watts Up Review

Hey everyone!
I wanted to do a quick review on the Benefit Watts Up highlighter for you guys! This is one of the freebee that you can get from Sephora for your birthday if you are a beauty insider! 

So lets start off with the packaging! Its really cute metallic purple and it is a twist up product, similar to the packaging of a lipstick. I like this idea, but that also means that the product itself is solid, which makes it difficult to apply sometimes. 

The shade itself is a shimmery, frosty, champagne. It is pretty opaque in one swipe as you can see in the picture on the right, but can also be sheered out to a light sheen as you can see in the picture below! My one concern with this product is the mechanics of using it. It is very solid, so if you swipe it across the cheek, it'll disturb the foundation and concealer and all that. It's also too solid to work well with a brush, so it puts me in sort of a predicament. What I've found works best is warming it up with your finger and using your finger to pat it where you want it. 

Overall, I'm glad that I have it and I do use it pretty often, but I don't think that I'll buy this with my own money because there are so many comparable highlighters in the same shade that work better! Like Mary Lou-Manizer is almost the exact same (except powder) and is a lot easier to apply! 

If you have this product, let me know your thoughts on it in the comments below and don't forget to subscribe to this blog!


  1. Yeah, a stick highlighter seems pretty hard to work worth. Glad you found a way to use it up.

  2. I think the stiff texture is what made it really hard to work with! If it was creamier I think it would have been better! Thanks Jenna!
