Benefit Watt's Up Cream to Powder Highlighter | Review & Swatches

Welcome Back Beauty Lovers!

You probably wont believe me if I told you...but I'm going to tell you any way...I've had this post on my 'Blog Post Ideas' list for nearly a year! Unbelievable right? I got this gorgeous highlighter in a Benefit Christmas set in 2013 and each month it gets bumped down the idea's list to make room for a newer product, but finally today it has it's time to shine.

I do only own the miniature version of the highlighter, but benefit did such a great job with the packaging making it nearly identical to the original.
I like to think of this highlighter as my skin but better - the sheer champagne toned hue blends effortlessly into my natural fair complexion giving me a natural looking glow. The colour is absolutely gorgeous, a pale and wearable soft gold, perfect for the holiday season upon us. The colour reminds me of a subtle MAC Soft & Gentle, but it's more of a peek-a-boo, wash of shimmer.

I love the consistency, you wouldn't know it was a cream product because once blended it sits perfectly on the skin, no tell tale streaks or heaviness of a typical cream product. All it takes is a few pats and its blended seamlessly into your skin. I wear this on top of foundation on my cheekbones, and on my brow bone, you can layer another highlight on top if you want a more glowing or dramatic look.

My miniature version doesn't have the sponge blending tool, but I honestly don't think that I would even entertain that idea of using that, shy away from sponge applicators for hygiene reasons, the thought of that being pressed on my face repeatedly just fills me with terror. I have enough time to apply the highlight where I want and then go back and gently blend it out with my finger before it magically turns into a powder.

The full sized versions would cost you £23.50, but it would last you a life time, you only need the quickest swipe and your glowing. in several years when I've used up my miniature I'll definitely be buying the full size.

What do you think to this highlighter?
