- "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
So the outer packaging was adorable. Its like an old school light bulb box with that according style inner packaging. Cute. The actual product packaging seemed to want to resemble some kind of old school bulb but didn't quite get there. Its still cute with its mirrorlike metallic purple/blue/ silver outside packaging and the very cute mod label.
The brush on the other side is all but pointless. Its hard and little with hardly any sponge or space to it to blend out. Its like the worst buffer you've ever used and no one needs to be buffing in highlight like a foundation. It is better diffused and blended by fingers or a fluffy brush that can offer a light touch. The sponge is virtually useless.
The formula here isn't exactly horrid but it is super natural looking. We've got like a suoer natural, champagne colored highlight with white or silver shimmer. Its all very light and natural which can be pretty if thats what you're going for.
It just seems like with a name like Watts Up no one is going to be going for the pretty much invisible highlight. It should have been named differently because its barely there when applied and even less so when blended in just barely.
Its not an oil based product. Its almost like a matte type finish so it won't slide off oily skin or make you more oily and it hasn't broken me out which a lot of cream products tend to do.
Overall I donr think its worth it for 30 bucks but if you can find it during a sephora sale or something like I did for around 15 and not break the bank it could be a nice and natural highlight to add to your makeup arsenal.
