Sample Saturday - Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Soft Focus Highlighter

November 2, 2013

Another Sample Saturday and this time it's the Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter. I don't use a highlighter on my cheeks everyday, but sometimes I do want to add glow on my face without looking shiny or shimmery. I will usually use a powder highlighter so this is the first one that I've used that is a cream. Find out what I think and if I would buy the full size below!

More info on the Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter:
Our soft focus highlighter turns on “watt” ya got with a delicate champagne glow that’s gorgeous. With a cream-to-powder’s a switch on “wow” for all complexions. You’ll adore the smooth applicator and luminous sheen.

This is a really good highlighter and I have been using it more often than I thought I would. It gives a nice glow to my skin and stays on all day. I like that it is a cream-to-powder product which makes it a lot easier to apply.I use this right under my brows, on the tops of my cheeks, down my nose, and a little above my upper lip.

 Even though I really like this product, I wouldn't run out and buy it ASAP. A highlighter is good to have, but I'm not the kind of person to have this need to highlight as part of my regular makeup routine. I will definitely use up this sample though since I do like the finish and how it looks. But buying the full sample will eventually happen, just not as of right now.

Buy full size? I would buy the full size, but it's not a necessary product to run out and get.

Let me know what you think!

  1. I dont really use cream products much either. I have a lot of highlighters but n0t cream either

  2. For some reason I've never used this anywhere else but my cheekbones...def gonna try it elsewhere now!

  3. This looks exactly like my wet n wild eyeshadow stick in pixi or something like that... $2 (or so) and it gives your cheeks the same glow!

  4. Good to know! I'm going to have to look for that one. Thank you! :)
