Benefit Watt's Up Highlighter (Birthday Sample) - Review and Swatch
The Benefit Watt's Up highlighter I have here was from the Sephora Birthday package for 2013. If you're not a Sephora Beauty Insider then I would urge you to sign up because it's free and you get a free birthday gift on your birthday.
Watt's Up is a shimmery light champagne color that does a very good job at mimicking a natural glow. The shimmer is subtle and fine. It's described as a cream to powder product. I like that kind of finish as it seems to last longer and this particular highlighter was also very easy to blend with my fingers.
Frankly for me, it's not something I need. I have natural shine myself and this looks no different than my natural shine. I prefer highlighters with a bit more "color" to them, otherwise highlighter is a product I often skip on and can honestly do without in my beauty stash.
Overall, this is a nice highlighter for those who want or need a bit more luster on their face. If you are naturally shiny, like myself, you probably won't need to pay $30 (the full size product) for something that will give you the same result.
Do you use highlighters regularly? Which one is your favorite?
