Benefits Watt’s Up highlighter.

Monday, June 10, 2013

The first hurdle when choosing a highlighter was that having never used it before I was a little unsure what to go for; I had done my usual internet trawl to narrow down the list of possible purchases and decided I would hit the Benefit counter on my next visit to Debenhams, as there seemed to be quite a few to choose from in this brand from creams, powders to liquids.

The product I chose to buy was the Benefits Watt's Up Highlighter. As always with Benefit products the packaging is funky and fun maybe even a little over the top.  The highlighter itself is a retractable cream stick that allows for accurate application and at the opposite end there is a sponge for blending.
 I really like the cream to powder finish and the champagne glow is lovely although I tend to use my fingers to blend rather than the sponge. I have worn this a few times and people have always commented on it.
The downside for me is that the on application of the highlighter it feels quite thick although I still found myself having to re-apply.

At a whopping £24 it could be argued that we are paying mainly for the excessive packaging rather than actual product but hopefully it should last quite a while !!
I would consider buying this again but  I would probably try something else first such as the sun beam of moon beam liquids by benefit or even the mineralize powder by MAC.
 Which do you guys prefer?
