This is actually a pretty good stick highlighter. Simply swipe over area and then blend with the little buffer that comes on the other side of the product. Honestly not a fan of stick highlighters but this one is actually worth the money and won't ruin the powdered make-up that you have already applied.

Great highlighter that can be easily controlled. Benefit Watt's Up is a soft and very blendable stick highlighter. I prefer to use my fingers to lightly blend the highlighter on the top cheekbones and at the temples. Powder highlighters create fallout, with this there is no mess. It's a lovely champagne colour that will look gorgeous on every skintone. It's a bit pricey but that's most cosmetics these days. I haven't experienced any breakouts from this product so that's a huge plus for me and there is zero fragrance. Definitely worth the purchase for beginner highlighting use and for those with dry skin.

This product is okay, it does get the job done however, there are better products out there. It is soft but found that I had a bit of difficulty blending it out.

I got a sample size of this in a Sephora birthday gift a couple of years ago.

I'm not really into the whole contouring/highlighting thing when it comes to my makeup routine, but this is still a really pretty product. I have very fair skin, but this shade still works well for me. I can use it under my brow bone, in the inner corner, or even on the eyelid. If I do decide I want to add some highlight to my cheekbones, I can dab a bit of this to where the light hits and blend it out for a very natural look, and it doesn't appear too dark on me.

I can't believe the tiny little stick I got is still with me a few summers later, but I've literally barely made a dent in it! And it hasn't dried out in the slightest. It's still really creamy and smooth. If I ever run out, I'd get a full size.

I originally received this product as a sample freebie and it took a few tries to figure out if I liked it. Because it is a stick product you have to be careful that when you apply it, you dont wipe off your existing makeup. It offers buildable highlight (from subtle to dramatic) and is a pearly colour. I personally only use it occasionally and if I want a more polished look. It is a bit pricey so be sure you're dedicated to the highlighter look.

My skin tone can vary from alabaster to medium. Even on my lightest complexion days, this highlighter is noticeable. I apply it to my cupid's bow, under my eyebrow and even above the brow (like a C shape) to compliment my features. While a full size is a bit on the expensive side, it is worth every penny because you are getting a glow that is buildable and universal. Have fun using it in different places! Try the tear duct to compliment your eyeshadow look :)

Amazing. Gives the perfect highlight. It had the perfect amount of shimmer. It's not over powering. Goes on smooth. Lasts all day. Well worth it. Product lasts months too.

I got this highlighter in travel size in a benefit value pack. Heen using it for a year and there is still a lot of it left. I like this product, it provides a nice touch of glow on top of my foundation. The regular size is quite pricey but i guess it would last an eternity so its all right.

I love this highlighter. I tried 3 or 4 & returned them all to Sephora before finding this one & falling in love with it. I use it on my nose & cheekbones as a final step after putting on all of my makeup. It give your skin an amazing glow without looking like you have a ton of makeup caked on. Great to also use for make up free days just to give your skin a little something! At $30 it is definitely a splurge but it's worth it and lasts a long time. I got mine six months ago and still have about a quarter of the tube left.
