I got this mini as part of a Sephora beauty insider reward kit. I don't need to use highlighter on my skin so I just use this product on my lids as a no-makeup makeup eyeshadow and I LOVE IT! It gives a great creamy / glowy effect on my eyes and is super easy to apply. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to purchase but I am happy that I got the chance to sample this product.

So I am usually not a fan of highlighters because it always emphasizes my large pores but this one looked lovely on my skin. Very sheer and subtle and it grows great with a natural look or if you want your blush to pop.

Lovely high lighter which works on pale skin! Gives a lovely glow and blends nicely, wouldn't use the sponge it comes with as didn't seem to do much, easier to blend out with fingers or stippling brush, lovely product! Could use as a cream eyeshadow or eyeshadow base too!

Just a disclaimer: I've never in my life used highlighter nor do I know how to use it.
With that said, I actually like this stuff! I got it as a gift from Sephora and did a little research so I knew what to do when I attempted to put it on. I just put it on my cheekbones and brow bones. It blended very nicely with my skin. I think champagne is generally a very flattering color. But it didn't look or feel greasy or weird. It definitely gave my face a glow, almost a dewy look.
Not sure if I'd buy this again. I mean it did make a subtle difference and it's nice for special occasions. But sheeeeiiiiittt it's pretty expensive and I'm pretty cheap so my cheap side trumps in this case. If you're not a poor college student like me I would def give this a try!

I received this highlighter as one of my birthday presents and I really like it! Its a lovely champagne colour, I have been using it for almost a month now and I do feel that it brightens my skin and looks more glowing. I use this on my cheek bones and sometimes on my brow bone. I like the cute packaging although I don't use the sponge applicator very often. Would recommend to try this product!

I received this as part of a set, so it was sample-sized. I'm not one to use highlighters since many just make me look shiny & greasy and I probably just never practiced enough with any of them to learn the right application. I have to say, this one surprised me. I tried it on my cheek bones blending with my fingertips, but the best place is on the side of my nose by my inner eye - it seems to make my tired eyes look awake and refreshed. Not sure if I will buy the full sized product once I am done with this but a little goes a long way so i'm sure I'll have this for awhile.

Let me start off by saying...WATT A PRODUCT! Lol
If you are looking for the HG highlighter look no further. Watts up gives you all the glow you need minus the oiliness that others do. It's a cream that turns to powder and has a pleasant texture. Depending on how much you use it can be subtle to intense.
I have never gotten so many comment on my skin since starting to use this product. Everyone is commenting on how healthy, happy, gorgeous etc.
I got this as a birthday gift from sephora and immediately went and bought a full size one (in case they discontinue like so many of my favs always do)
The packaging is so cute as usual with benefit. I would recommend this to every woman with every kind of skin.

I got this for free as the Sephora birthday gift. This highlighter is okay because I have to use a lot for it to even show up on my skin. It doesn't blend easily and is overpriced. I wouldn't buy it.

Greatest highlighter ever! It's so easy to use and blend. I just sweep it onto the top of my cheekbone, blend it out with a dense brush and done! It gives me such a nice, natural glow. But the price is a little too high for a highlighter. I mean, I get that it's high brand but it's quite expensive.. I still say that it's worth the money. And now the packaging, I personally think it looks, sorta tacky and odd. I like the name because it's clever. But I just don't like the way it looks. It's so bulky and weirdly shaped.
Either way, I love this product and highly recommend it!

After the High Beam kind of failed for me I tried Watt's Up and I'm quite pleased with the results. Unlike High Beam, this highlighter is a lot more natural and glowy rather than shimmery and Iits a nice pretty champagne-gold color. I don't know how it will work for pale skin tones but this will definitely work for tan, olive, medium and dark skin tones. The lasting power however isn't the best, it lasts only about 2 or 3 hours and it tends to get a tad bit greasy. Also the packaging is somewhat cute but strange.Overall, lovely lovely highlighter, try it out!

I love this highlighter, Its my favorite I also have a nars one but this one by far just leaves a nice dewy highlight.. its a must have

I really do not like this highlighter...at least, for that purpose alone. It's way too shimmery, too thick, and very difficult to blend out. I got this for free on my birthday, thank god, but even then I wish they had given me something a little more practical. I'm not one for shimmer or necessarily highlighters.
If I use this at all, it'll be as a base or a stand-alone cream eyeshadow. I feel it would work well for that purpose seeing as it's so thick and hardly moves, so it probably won't crease. For that alone, I will give it 2 lippies.

Not really getting the great overall score for this product. I got the birthday mini and I'm not impressed. I might have been impressed once, before I'd used both Maybelline Color Tattoo (in Barely Branded) and the e.l.f. shimmering facial whip. Both of those are better products than Watts Up, hands down, with creamy textures and great blendability.
I found Watts Up to be waxy and stiff, difficult to blend out/dragging the skin on application, and not anything special in terms of highlighting. In addition the shade is very much on the warm side of gold, which is not universally flattering (did nothing for me).

I got it as part of the Bronze of Champoins kit (which I love, by the way) and it's an okay highlighter. It's not bad but i don't see anything special about it. I am able to blend it even after i've put on powder, but it's not as easy to do so. it adds a very subtle glow so it's not too obvious that you have highlighter on. i don't like it as browbone highlight though and you can't really use it in the inner corners of your eye.

My fav cream highlighter! It's up against the Mary Lou-Manizer in regards to taking the #1 spot. Watts up is such a gorgeous subtle glow. It's extremely creamy and blends like a dream. I def enjoy using this when I don't want to look so "made up".

I love this product!!!!

I got the "Bronze of Champions" kit at Sephora as it had several items I wanted to try and this highlighter was included.
I've never been a big fan of the BeneFit line as I think most of their products a little gimmicky for my liking.
But I was pleasantly surprised with this highlighter. I was concerned it would look stark white on my skin (Asian, NC30/C3) but it gives me a nice, subtle glow.
I use it sparingly as I don't like too much shimmer.
I like to use it on my brow bone if I'm doing an evening look.
The cream texture is easy to blend and gives a nice dewy look which I find is more flattering in my mid 40's.

I wanted to love this product, but it just seems average and difficult to apply. It also seems to make my skin look oily no matter how I apply it, and it's just hard to work with. I switched to a powder highlighter by a different brand, and I like it much better. I also sometimes use Benefit's High Beam, and I definitely prefer that over this.

I always apply highlighter after I have set my foundation with powder. Since this product is creamy, I have a hard time blending it nicely, and I tend to look like I have a stark streak of highlighter on my cheekbones rather than a nice glow. Wherever I place it, it seems to stick and not move, making it unblendable and streaky. I may try powdering after I apply the highlighter to see if I can blend it into my foundation more seemlessly. Its very pretty, but I prefer a powder highlighter as I think it looks more natural than this. This highlighter is very shimmery on my fair skin.

Not going to lie, I was extremely turned off upon seeing the glitter- but man, this is the definition of a 'golden glow'. The sparkles are only noticable if you are looking for them- otherwise this product really does a great job of bringing out that sunkissed look.
