If you have oily skin, the idea of "highlighting" will be all too strange. Why add shine when you've got shine that you want to get rid of?! Well, I'm there with you on that. But for two reasons, I started applying highlighters. First reason is, I've been going regularly to my skincare spa. It's helped clear up my skin so much! Second reason is because if applied right in the right places, it'll look like a "glow" and not the kind of oily shine we all hate so much.
Benefit "Watt's Up" is a gorgeous champagne highlighter that is a double-ended stick. One side has the highlighter and the other side has a small rounded sponge that you can work to blend out the highlighter. I saw Tanya Burr wear it in her videos and although she raves so much about Dior amber diamond highlighters, I could never see the effects of the glow as much as I saw it when she wore this Benefit Watt's Up! Wowza! It was gorgeous.
So, on a trip to Sephora I went and tried it on. It has a smooth consistency and goes on so well. After I dapped it on the tops of my cheeks and right under my brow, I went seriously considering buying it. I heard so many compliments that day, people asking what was on my cheeks. They adored the glow, the shine, and etc.,! That was mission accomplished! It actually had a "highlighting" effect and not a oily shine effect :)
This is the only highlighter I use. I still only use it on special days. Highlighters are still a bit of a new concept for me, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. Again, this product reconfirms my love and respect for Benefit cosmetics for their fast, efficient, and fun products. Also, you gotta love the name. Watt's Up?! :)
Absolutely love! xx
