BENEFIT WATTS UP HIGHLIGHTER REVIEW





Hi lovelies! I hope you're all doing well and have had a fab Easter! Darren and I went and did a massive fruit, veg and healthy foods shop, a long walk and gym workout today after a very indulgent Easter Sunday, so safe to say I'm loving having a chilled out evening blogging this evening! So, today I have a review for you all. Back to my usual today, it's a Benefit review! This time of year, as the weather starts changing, I want a pretty, glowy highlighted look, while my skin is still suffering from winter dullness, With this in mind I'm going to be talking about the fabulous Watt's Up Highlighter.

Like I said, lately I've been loving having a glowy look, but I sometimes find powder highlights to been quite strong and a little too shimmery, this however is much more subtle, but gives enough of a highlight to give a pretty, candlelit glow to your look. The stick formula makes it super easy to use, it goes on smoothly over foundation, or even over a face powder and doesn't move the makeup underneath at all. The one thing I would say if you were to buy this, is don't bother with the sponge at the other end. I honestly find this so pointless, as when I tried to use it to blend, it just seemed to remove it! This may just be me not using it properly but just throwing that out there!

I've been absolutely loving this for use on my cheekbones and particularly on my brow bone, it lifts my look just enough for the daytime without looking overdone. It lasts all day on top of my makeup, which is fab as I think a lot of highlights don't tend to stay put as much as this. I'd totally recommend this if you're after a nice subtle, long lasting highlight for daytime use then this is perfect.

What are your thoughts? Do you have a favourite highlighter? Let me know!

  1. This looks gorgeous! I've been really struggling with my contour recently, feeling like my contour powder isn't right and highlighter a bit too much. May bite the bullet and give this a try! x
