Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter

As me and Piers are all moved into our new place, I no longer have to worry about putting hundreds of pounds aside (apart from rent and bills- of course) and so I decided to do a little spending on Saturday to get bits and bobs that I knew needed restocking. Lasting perfection concealer- check! Stay Matte Powder- check! Collection Contour Kit- check! Once I'd finished shopping around for everything that I'd made a mental note of, I still felt like I was missing something. Ah ha! Highlighter.

Now I have to admit, I've never really been a fan of highlighters. In fact I've pretty much avoided them at all costs, just simply because I've never liked any before- until this one.

A lot of highlighters that I've tried in the past have had a very pink undertone to it and my default look is a brown lip, brown blush so I just never really took a liking to any of them. I explained this to the lovely lady at the benefit counter and she recommended that I try this one. Benefit's Watt's Up! As soon as she tried it on me, I knew I'd fallen for it. The champagne colour is gorgeous, it has a dewy shimmer look to it that lasts all day and most importantly for me, it looks incredible on top of my contour and dark blush.

It also comes with a sponge applicator at the other end which you use to press the highlight into your skin and although I think this is a crazy good idea, I definitely prefer to use  a brush to blend it in.

The only thing I will say which I feel would be unfair not to point out is their "cream-to-powder finish" claim, I have used some powder highlighters in the past and I don't believe that at any point of the day I felt it becoming more powdery. It's pretty dewy and creamy all day. 

Overall I'm so happy with this highlighter. This is probably the first review I've done where I have no negatives to feed back to you, (unless you'd be disappointed with the lack of powder finish). I feel like a shimmering fairy wearing this and I'm officially a highlighter fan! I don't think any of my makeup looks would be complete without using this now.

You can purchase the Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter here for a reduced price to what I paid. I envy you.

  1. This sounds fab. I've always heard people go on about this highlighter however this is the first blog post I've read about it. I'm stuck in a bit of a rut with highlighters at the moment, I just haven't found one that I'm 100% happy with, but this sounds lovely. I'm a fan also of a dark blush and nude brown lip so hopefully this will look just as good on me :-) Thanks for sharing!!

    1. I was the exact same. I also worried about getting this initially because of how pale my skin is but it would literally suit anyone!

    1. I'm sure you could find a dupe in a powder finish! I have so many that I want to try out now...
