Rated 3 out of 5 by Mariella99 from Packaging could be way better I was totally prepared to love Watts Up but I think I've come to realize that maybe I'm better off with powder products. I find that in trying to blend this powdery cream product, I end up sort of rubbing off my foundation and ending up with a patchy mess. The sponge tipped applicator for Watts Up is pretty useless, folks - far better to use your fingers or a brush. And the lid that covers the product does not screw on securely, which is another downside - less "cutesy" but more effective packaging would be an improvement. This is a good highlighter and I do use it on my cupid's bow and a bit on my brow-bones but as I cheek highlight, I just don't have the "smarts" to use this well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katiecalliopegrace from Works for pale skin! I got a sample of this ages ago and sort of dismissed it as it was cream so I was sure I wouldn't be able to put it on over my powder and I'm soooo pale I was sure it would look orange on me. Just recently I was introducing a friend of mine to Benefit and was showing her my collection and how to use each one and I used the Watts Up over my powder and it looked AMAZE. I've been using another (expensive!!!) powder highlighter but it doesn't look nearly as good as the Watts Up. It really does look softly lit without any trace of oily ness and went on top of my powder so nicely - buying a full size immediately! A fantastic product to use for mid day touch ups it just looks awesome

Rated 5 out of 5 by jojoTX from ABSOLUTLY AMAZING!!! i have dull skin. and i have tried every product in the make up world, that would bring a natural glow to my face, with out making my skin look oily or irratate it. THIS PRODUCT IS ABSOLUTLY AMAZING!!! i was hooked from the first time i used it. i use it on my eyebrow bone to high light my eyes, on my forehead where the sun naturally hit ur face (so at night it literally looks like the sun is still with u) ANNND on my cheeks, it gives a great allution, making me look like i have movie star cheek bones. I would recomend this to anyone, who wants that "Hollywood/ magazine shot,look"

Rated 5 out of 5 by PabloHoney9 from Soft glow! My favorite highlighter to date! Love the champagne color, suitable for a lot of skin tones and shades. This highlighter looks even more amazing on the skin in low lighting rooms. You don't need a lot of this, just a bit, blend away and voila! You get a glow that is subtle, not over the top and simply highlights your best features. Benefit's soft focus description definitely describes this product very well. I apply and blend this with my fingers (I don't use the sponge), to control the amount of glow that I want. I wear this everyday now and it seems it's going to last for a long time. I wanted this since its launch, and I can proudly say that I don't regret it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by AbigailT from So far this is the only highlighter I've tried that... So far this is the only highlighter I've tried that applies easily on top of powder. Doesn't cake at all. Gives the perfect glow (subtle, natural looking, dewy without looking wet) and comes in the perfect color that works with all skin tones (nobody goes wrong with champagne). Oh and this is not glittery or sparkly. A little goes a long way. Best highlighter in my bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LCHawkins from LOVE LOVE LOVE! I absolutely love this product! I received the travel size version in a kit and bought the full size straight away! It's the first highlighter that I have ever really used. It has great blendability. I do have to say that I prefer the packaging on the mini size over the full size. I do not use the sponge, and find the actual package to be weird. The product is a win though. In the future I would be more likely to purchase sets that include the small size product though just because I prefer the packaging on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bahistafemme from Awesome highlighter! This is the first highlighter that I've ever used, and I don't think I'll ever switch to another. It's easy to apply, and the soft glow blender allows me to "customize" Watt's Up's glow. It makes me look radiant and in photographs, I don't look shiny or greasy...only glowing. :) Also, when I'm in a hurry, Watt's Up doubles as a contouring trick for me: I swipe it down the middle of my nose and then sculpt the sides, and voila! My nose instantly looks better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dollita from pretty being fairly fair skinned, I bought this product not really knowing what to expect (most of the reviews are from medium skinned women). So, here's a small list of pros and cons about buying this is you are a fairer skinned woman. Pros: its a pretty, shimmery gold highlighter with a velvety texture. You don't need much, so it looks like it will last a while. The gold colour can be used as eyeshadow, which is really nice. Cons: it is not suitable for dry skin, because it will not blend well and it will make skin drier. It is not suitable for very fair skin (you will have gold streaks on your face). It is a little to pricey. It can be very noticeable and unnatural if you are heavy handed. Overall, I like this product. I need to be careful with the amount I apply, and, having dry skin, I need to mix it with some moisturizer. I especially like that it can double as creamy eyeshadow. However, fair skinned people beware, this is probably not your highlighter.
