Benefit Watts Up Highlighter | Review


I’ve been looking for a good highlighter for quite a while to sit on top of my cheekbones and give my face a bit of ‘oomph’ but with so many out there i’ve been a little unsure of where to start. But when i wandered into Debenhams the other week i was drawn in my the retro glamour of the Benefit counter and went over for a browse.

I don’t know how i managed it but i’d never brought anything from Benefit before this. I also don’t know why, because this is so amazing it makes me want to run out and buy everything they sell. Benefit’s Watts Up Highlighter is possibly the easiest makeup items in the world to use, ever. It comes with the highlighter one end which twists up, and a blending sponge on the other which together make application a complete breeze. The highlighter itself is so creamy It just glides onto your skin and leaves a trail of subtle shimmer in it’s wake. Just by gently blending the edges you have instantly glowing cheeks which glint beautifully when the light hits your face. I use this every day on my cheeks and down the centre of my nose as a final step to my makeup, it’s become a real essential and i never leave the house without it. The packaging is adorable too and i just love having it in my makeup bag!

A Benefit Watts Up Highlighter will cost you £24.50 and i think it’s worth every last penny. I’d buy this every month if i had to, but it looks as if it’s going to last a long time – after three weeks i haven’t had to twist up once. So, all i have to do now is decide on my next Benefit treat!

Have you tried Benefit’s Watts Up Highlighter? Do you love it as much as i do?
