Benefit Watt's Up Highlighter

As you may know, Katelyn and I are big fans of Benefit cosmetics. While we were in Sydney in March we were at the the Benefit counter in Myer and we were both wanting the Watt's Up highlighter. One of the ladies at the counter tried some product on me and I knew then that I need it. This is what I think of Watt's Up...

Packaging: The packaging of this products is quite unique (like most Benefit products). It's a metallic purple/bluey colour with the wind up highlighter at one end and a sponge tip applicator at the other end. I have actually never used the sponge tip end as I usually use my fingers to blend it out but I think if you were on the go it could be handy.

Product: This is a champagne coloured cream-to-powder finish highlighter. It is also "soft focus" meaning it won't accentuate your pores like a lot of other powder highlighters seem to do. It apply's really smoothly and has great pigmentation.

I think it cost me around $50.00 in Australia. You can also buy it from here.

Overall: Watt's Up is a gorgeous highlighter that would suit any skin tone. It has a nice texture and a good amount of wear time. Watt more could you want?

Have you tried Watt's Up?
