Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream Highlighter
- "so easy to throw on and lights up your face! sometimes a little too shiny for what i am going for, but great for a night out" in 496 reviews
- "it did look nice,i got a sample of this from a subscription box. my only real problem with it is that the undertone didn't suit my skin in the winter,though it looked alright in the summer months. it was a light,buildable cream stick that was easy to use,and could be sheered out for more natural days. if it suited my skin tone better through the fall and winter months amd not just during when i have a tan,i would have purchased a full size,as i quite like the formula. it also stays on well,does good with powder over it,and doesn't make me look textured." in 437 reviews
- "The little sample sized one I received from Sephora for my birthday gift about 2 years ago, I still have and use everyday to contour my nose and make it smaller <3" in 45 reviews
- "Not too shimmery, prefer the sample size to full size packaging, just find it easier to apply, a great highlighter, just over expensive" in 39 reviews
- "Looks great as a highlight shade in the inner corner of the eye or on the brow bone, also works great as a highlight shade (especially with the full size version)." in 34 reviews
I absolutely love this highlighter! This is the highlighter that got me addicted to highlights. This creamy highlighter glides on top of my foundation so well and it does not pick up the makeup underneath so everything is still even. It is a great color for my dark skin, which is where I was nervous because I’m never sure how a highlighter is going to look on me. Benefit has such great products and this is just one of the many! I have given this highlighter as gifts multiple times within the last five months and everyone has fallen in love with it the way I have! Great great product!
I absolutely love this highlighter, and have been loving it since it came out! I have repurchased it multiple times, and it is definitely worth the price. It gives such a natural, pretty highlight look to your face that isn't too over the top or fake looking. It gives such a pretty, golden, dewy glow to your skin. The stick applicator makes it very easy to easy and apply to your skin, as well as the product itself is super creamy and smooth making it easy to blend into your skin. The sponge on the other side of the product is perfect for blending the highlight into your skin. I just think it is such a beautiful color for a highlight, and it gives such a natural and dewy glow to your skin. I recommend it to anyone who likes a more subdued, natural looking highlight that is still shimmery and pretty on the skin!!
Not worth all the hype that some of my friends have over this product. It is nice for a little glow and the cream stick applies alright, but I think i'm more of a powder highlighter or a pure liquid highlighter rather than a cream / stick highlighter. I don't like to rub it on over and over trying to build up my highlight, but for an everyday, dewy look, it works well enough. The packaging, as always, is on point, so I thought it deserved four starts instead of three.
I love this highlighter so much. It's so gorgeous and provides the perfect amount of shimmer wherever you want! I simply use it over moisturizer for a super easy yet beautiful no-makeup makeup look. My one complaint is the staying power. If I apply this in the morning, it's gone within an hour and I have to completely reapply. Since it's nice and portable I'm not hugely concerned about it, but it would be nice if it stayed longer.
I’ve been using this highlighter since I got a sample of it 5 years ago, before the highlighting craze began. I’m personally not huge on bright shiny highlighter, so this gives me the perfect level of a soft glow that I like. The application is smooth and doesn’t clump, and it’s easily blendable with a finger or brush. I’ve worn it on nights out and it looks good every time I look in the mirror during a bathroom break.
The first highlighter I ever owned!! This was given to me in sample size from Sephora as a birthday gift. Since then, it has always been my favorite highlighter. The tone of it is just gorgeous for a glowy, natural highlight. Its not blinding but just enough for a perfect glow. Can easy be paired with a powder highlight for a more intense highlight. A little goes a long way girls, so it will last you such a long time!!
One of my all time favorite highlighters. I was unsure about such a light color against my deep skin but one swipe and that all went out the window. It blends effortlessly and gives a glow that is super natural. The size of the product allows for easy application and it lasts quite a long time. I've also built it up for a more blinding glow.

This product does exactly what it says it’s supposed to do and the color of it is beautiful, but I have oily skin so this product is not something I will repurchase. If you have normal skin I think this would be perfect and same for dry skin. Sometimes I use it as an inner corner highlight and put a powder on top and it works well but as far as on the rest of my face I’ll have to pass.
I would have given this product a 2 star review but felt that it would have been unfair to do so because this product does give you a light natural glow and that's not the type of glow that I usually go for. If you are looking for a natural glow then this is definitely the product for you but not if you like something that is blinding. I'm also just not a big fan of having to apply highlighters with my fingers and although this comes in a stick form, which allows you to glide it over your face, you still have to use your fingers to blend it out. Because the highlight or isn't blinding, I feel that throughout the day it also does not last. The packaging however is so cute, which Benefit never seems to fail at! Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up!

I’ve had the trial size for several weeks now and it’s amazing! And it lasts a long time: a little goes a long way. It doesn’t crease like other cream highlighters. I love to use it at my inner corners, under my brow bones, bridge of the nose and Cupid’s bow. It’s also great for enhancing your lower lip (I place a bit at the center, over lipstick, with my finger).
