So as usual I'm a bit late to the overly -hyped- by -the -beauty- bloggers party. Here we have the Benefit 'Watt's Up' highlighter and I won't lie, other than my obsession with owning as many highlighters as my pay cheque will allow me to, the hype was the reason I bought it!
I've only ever tried a cream highlighter once before which was my Illamasqua Gleam Cream which I absolutely loved, but never have I tried one in stick form. Watt's Up, I keep wanting to type 'Whatsapp' and I also keep calling it that as well, is a beautiful champagne highlight colour and it's different to anything else that I own.
It's a double ended stick which has the product on one side and a sponge on the other. To be quite honest, I don't think the sponge is very useful as it's not very sturdy and it feels as if it's going to fall off each time I try and use it to blend the highlighter in, so I stopped using it. It also gets very dirty because I'm sure most people, like myself, use highlighter after they've applied foundation so it goes a really nice shade of foundation after each use. It doesn't seem as if it is easily cleaned, although I haven''t actually tried as I don't really see the point.
As for application, I use one swipe on each cheekbone and one on my nose and that usually does the trick, however I think I need to find a more dense brush to blend it in with, as I've mentioned the sponge is rubbish, and I think once I've done that it will work perfectly.
Have any of you tried this? Do you think the sponge is any good? If not what are your alternatives?
