Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Highlighters – it is the beauty item that I get the most excited about and the item I own the most of! I think my skin is quite dull, so I really like to wake it up a bit with a dusting of highlighter! When a Debenhams Voucher dropped into my lap, I couldn’t resist picking up another highlighter from Benefit. I have been using High Beam for a few years now and have been wanting to branch out to a different formulation. This is where Watts Up came in…..


Watts Up is a soft focus cream to powder highlighter in a stick with a handy blending sponge on the opposite end to the product. Now even though it comes with its own blending sponge, I tend to work this into the skin with either my fingers or a buffing brush as I find this works best. As with most cream products I have tried it is super easy to blend and because of its size, great for travelling. The formula makes it super long lasting and the lovely champagne shade looks stunning on the cheekbones as well as the browbone.

Have you tried Benefit’s Watts Up? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Until Next Time,

Laugh, Love and Shop

    I have both Watt’s Up and High Beam. I think I prefer Watt’s Up because it’s hard to overdo while with High Beam, I sometimes get carried away.
