Sample Saturday: Benefit Watt's Up!

Hello gentle reader.

How long has this partially written post been lurking around on my posts list? I was doing a little bloggy housework and found it there, debated on whether to delete or finish writing it and get it posted. I decided on the latter.

Watt's Up! is Benefit's soft champagne creme to powder highlighter that turns on "watt" you got.  I received this snack size tube in my little Sephora birthday gift, last year. It came along with a They're Real Mascara sample. 


Inside the reflective, blue-y tube is a stick of soft, golden champagne glow. I have used this on my face and as a brow bone highlight. It works very well as both. You can apply this with your fingers or with a soft brush. The product is smooth and creamy but not squishy and messy and it is easy to work with. A little bit goes a long way. When it is buffed softly atop the cheekbones with a small duo fiber brush, your face looks as if an angel dipped the tip of her wing in pure sunshine and touched it, ever so gently to your skin.

Benefit Watt's Up! is available at SephoraUltaBenefit's websiteMacy's. Wherever you can buy Benefit cosmetics.

I would probably buy a full size, some time in the future but I don't see myself needing one, any time, soon. I still have quite a bit of my little one left.

Do you own Benefit Watt's Up! highlighter? What do you think of it? Do you have a highlighter that you really dig? Enable me. I'm easy.

Thank you for spending a little of your Saturday reading my natterings. Have a terrific weekend.

  1. I have this and have liked it when I used it... oddly enough though.. I almost never pull for it... tsk tsk... I really should because I always enjoy it.

  2. I don't get mine out as often as I should, either. That is probably why the snack size has lasted me so long.
