Following the hype of Benefits earlier highlighting products such as Girl Meets Pearl and High Beam, Benefit have stepped up their game even further with their latest highlighter; Watts Up.

The cream to powder highlighter perfectly accentuates cheeks and brow bones for a subtle but gorgeous glow. The double-ended product consists of a twist up end containing the smooth highlighter and a soft sponge on the other for blending.

The best feature of this product is ultimately its colour. Benefit Watts Up gives a peachy champagne glow making it perfect for a wide range of skin tones as it is not too harsh or bright. On top of that it is also not glittery; a reason as to why many highlighters on the market have been deemed unwanted and unusable, as whilst glittery makeup is fun it’s not always appropriate for everyday use.

And of course because it’s Benefit, the product is adorable looking and will easily fit into your handbag (always a big plus).

However, one problem is that if the highlighter is applied after foundation (as pretty much every girl does) the sponge does tend to gather the foundation, getting a little dirty and thus spoils the product’s colouring, so blending it in with your fingers seems to be the best option!

Finally, the product is always suitable for a day to night transition, as just one swipe may be enough for a daytime look, but you can up the anti and apply it slightly heavier at night to add more shimmer and definition.

So for £24.50 from Benefit you can make sure you’re glowing and camera ready at anytime!
