Watt's Up?

This is the second post about my Westfield beauty purchases. I am a sucker for benefit, think its the packaging as well as the products, I love how pretty they look!

Applied straight from the highlighter stick (top) and blended out (bottom)

The highlighter I was using before was Soap & Glory's Hocus Pocus which is described as an "instant visual flaw-softening lotion," which can be mixed with moisturiser or foundation for all over illumination or alone as a highlighter. I like illuminated skin but I think having actual illuminator on your whole face looks a bit much so I used it alone as a highlighter so when it ran out I wasn't necessarily looking for another multipurpose product like this. When I got back from holiday and was tanned I liked the look of Benefit's new Sunbeam but as I have faded back to my natural wintery tone I felt it was too golden for my now not so golden skin. I had never considered a cream highlighter but when I saw this one I fell in love, the packaging, the colour, the consistency...all lush! Watt's up is described as a "soft focus highlighter" and is a champagne coloured highlighter with a cream-powder finish. I like to use highligher on my cheek bones and brow bone and sometimes I put a tiny bit along my nose and in my cupids bow to makeup lipstick "pop" and to produce a glowy look without being OTT. Definitely recommend this one ladies. 

Have you tried Watt's up? Which Highlighter is your favourite?
