Most Helpful Positive

Lovely cream highlight


I enjoy this cream highlighter, as it's easy to apply and is a nice, natural colour that blends in with my skintone without looking stark or crazy. I like to wear it with minimal makeup as it's not a "blinding" glow.

Most Helpful Criticism

Natural No-Makeup Makeup Glow


It's not blinding enough for me to wear with full glam makeup but using it with a sheer foundation and minimal makeup for a more natural look is really pretty and soft. Because it's a stick I find it easiest to apply with my fingers and dab into skin before setting the face lightly with a translucent loose powder. The applicator on the bottom of this is garbage but the product is super easy to tap onto cheekbones with fingertips.

  2. Great Highlighter


    I don't usually like highlighter because most of the highlighter that I have encouter has a lot of glittery specks in it which can highlight skin texture. However this isn't the case with this one! As the name suggests, I love that this product is able to give me a natural look. It is a beautiful highlighter. Would recommend. The only con is that it is a little bit pricey.
  3. Reliable


    Because of the consistency its not a chunky highlight but does pack a punch in it's glowiness
  4. Kim K's favourite highlight!


    Super easy to apply, lovely finish and leaves skin glowy and beautiful! Excellent for all make-up looks (natural and glam).
  5. cute!


    lovely natural cream highlighter, lasts ages
  6. quick and easy to use with minimal makeup


    love this highlighter, its perfect for everyday wear, it goes well with minimal foundation/bronzer etc.
    its not the best for glamour makeup and just the perfect amount of shine for everyday wear. the blender isnt that great and i usually just use my finger but its a staple with my everyday wear.
  7. Love Love Love


    This product leaves such a pretty, shimmery sheen to the skin. If you're not a fan of glittery highlighters, give this product a go! Definitely a multi-purpose product - I love to use it on the eyes and on the cheekbones for a healthy glow.
  8. Beautiful


    I got this highlighter as a sample and I was amazed by the results. It’s so nice and the formula is really creamy and it has a lot of pigment. It blends really well and stays on all day. Definitely worth it!
  9. worth every cent


    super natural looking glow! so easy to blend and goes on so smoothly
  10. "No makeup" makeup


    The perfect cream highlighter for a "no makeup" makeup look. It is also great to use during summer and super easy to apply.
  11. This is watt's up!


    Beautiful natural glow from this product. Great for those of you that you like a natural looking finish
  12. Nice


    Gives nice glow to the skin and doesn't accentuate texture.
  13. So nice


    I love this in summer, it’s super creamy and gives me a healthy looking glow. I use it with my cream blushes and a little bit of mascara and I’m good to go! Wonderful!
  14. amazing


    This looks so glowy on the skin. Very beautiful on the skin.
  15. So pretty


    There are better highlighters than this but it’s still a great highlighter. Leaves skin so glowy and pretty. Buy
  16. Great dupe for Glossier


    Seeing as you can only buy Glossier overseas, this is a great dupe for their cream highlighter and it applies like a dream! Benefit never fails me
  17. easy


    I feel the sponge is a bit redundant, don't use it very often, always use my hand. Highlighter is good.

  19. Beautiful highlighter!


    I love this highlighter, it provides such a gorgeous sheen, but nothing crazy. I love to use this to highlight my nose, it works wonder!
  20. Not too impressive


    it is fine but the formula is too much creamy. i like my highlighter to not move my foundation but when i apply this on my cheekbones it just moves the foundation underneath it creating smudges. but otherwise the glow is pretty good.
  21. Good


    This comes in handy when I have to re-touch my highlighter during the day before going to a meeting or work events. Does not stay all day, has to be reapplied.
  22. Amazing highlight


    I love the colour of this. Super natural and I absolutely love that it’s so creamy. It melts into the skin and looks so gorgeous.
  23. You'll be popping


    I'm obsessed with this highlighter. It such a gorgeous shade - subtle golden colour. I have fair skin and it isn't too dark on me. Very pigmented and leaves the skin looking glowy in such a stunning natural way. Being a stick formula it is creamy and easy to blend into the skin. I've been using a mini size for about 6mth and still going strong. Honestly, its heaven and my go to everyday highlighte...

  24. So pigmented


    it's an amazing highlighter and I highly recommend it. its creamy and is blinding and sits amazingly on top of my foundation.
  25. Light glow


    I put it on my cheek bones and then smudge it with a brush. It gives a light glow if u want to make it intense you can layer it up. I have a little aged skin but this applies very nicely and looks very good too.
  26. gorgeous sheen


    Lovely bright effect and blends beautifully into the skin. I am olive skinned and it still looks gorgeous.
  27. Perfect for on the go


    I love this highlighter, I mostly use this in Summer when I'm going for a cream makeup base and really fresh and glowy, its quite subtle but can build it up. Super easy to use!
  28. Benefit is expensive


    BUT so worth it, all products that I’ve tried have been amazing quality and lasted a long time, this highlighter is no exception. Creates a beautiful glow and blends nicely with just finger tips!
  29. Beautiful silky highlighter


    This was one of my first Benefit purchases and it has lasted literally years so it's good value for money. It glides on the skin nicely and produces a soft, subtle highlight when blended out. You only need a little bit to get a beautiful glow and I like the easy cream application. Suitable for even pale skin types like myself.
  30. I like it but...


    I like it but I do prefer powder highlighters and I think it's not quite as bright and popping as other options on the market
  31. First love


    This was my very first makeup purchase and I’m still just as in love with it. This gives a beautiful glow that’s suitable for work and for going out. Love they it’s in stock form so I can travel with it and it never breaks. I’ve gone through a tube already and love this product no matter how many other highlighters I try, I always come back to this one
  32. creamy, quick and convenient


    This product is just all round gorgeous! I find it is best applied with the fingers as it warms up and is easier to blend into the skin. the colour is lovely on many different skin colours and wears well throughout the day
  33. Luminous!


    A natural yet popping glow, for someone that wants a dewy look rather than an obvious shimmer
  34. gorg on the skin


    gorgeous on the skin, not super blinding but noticeable. if you have oily skin i definitely recommend setting the cream with a powder highlight, makes it super blinding and lasts all day. a good shade for medium skin tones too !
  35. Poor packaging choice


    Pretty champagne shimmer. Has a bit of glitter visible, so perhaps better suited for nights out. The stick applicator itself is easy to use, but I'm not sold on the sponge on the other end - it adds bulk and weight to the packaging
  36. shimmer


    I will say i prefer powder highlights as they are easy and simple to apply, this is still a beautiful product and such a beautiful shimmer and glow!
  37. Better applied with fingers


    Works well on the high points of the face, but blends best when applied with fingers.
  38. very creamy

    perfecting skin

    it applies nicely onto the skin and gets blended in. it gives a light sheer glow.
  39. Use sparingly


    This melts into my skin making it look very natural. I only use a small amount around my outer eyes and top of my cheeks when I'm going out, not day to day. The stick has lasted me way longer than any of my other Beneifit products. I could have both the mini size.
  40. Watt's Up + Oily skin = NO!


    Wow if you have oily skin, STAY AWAY FROM THIS! I used this cream product, like I would use any other cream product in this area, and within 30 minutes it looked like my skin was an oily hot mess where I had applied this. Such a shame as I loved the idea behind this one but it's a no from me.
  41. Love this


    I use this over my foundation to give a light glow. It adds a really nice shimmer to my face.
  42. Really pretty


    This is such a pretty highlighter once you learn how to used it. I would suggest to warm it up with your fingers first before applying it to the face.
  43. Gorgeous finish!


    I use this as an eyeshadow and absolutely love it! It's got a great glow and adds a shimmer that I just love. It's my go-to for every special occasion.
  44. Light reflecting


    A natural yet popping glow, for someone that wants a dewy look rather than an obvious shimmer
  45. Beautiful


    Such a beautiful glowy highlighter with no glitter
  46. Dewy


    Gorgeous dewy glow, shows up better in daylight
  47. Gorgeous!


    This is in my top 3 highlighters. It's a gorgeous subtle colour. It blends lovely with fingers or a brush into the skin and looks like a natural glow. If I want a bit more 'pop' I use a powder highlighter on top. I can't fault this product - except I've never used the applicator on the other end, just personal preference.
  48. very....soft


    I can't tell if I'm wearing it or not... lovely shade in the tube, easy to apply, just not.. dramatic (noticeable enough?) will not buy again
  49. Soft sheen


    Lovely soft glow, gives a dewy look
  50. Subtle, flattering and easy for highlighting newbies!


    As far as I'm concerned, this little magic is the holy grail of highlighters for those like me who are a bit slack in the makeup department, and need their products to work with a minimal fuss. I like the stick applicator and that it came with easy highlight tips. It blends well into my pale skin tone and is not at all sparkly and overdone (like a few I've tried and given up upon!) You could use i...

  51. Good quality


    This is my second tube. I absolutely love this cream highlighter. I have tried the Balm highlighters but I feel this is better, it gives a really smoother finish and a lit from within glow. It lasts really long too!
  52. Finally, not a harsh light


    I've bought a fair few highlighters, trying to get a non glittery, non white-light type. Finally, we're starting to see these more "natural glow" products! The stick isn't as easy to blend over foundation as a liquid highlighter, (without moving it around--especially blending on my nose) but if you have a light hand, this isn't that big a deal on the rest of face). For "glass skin" I think a liqui...

  53. Nice product


    A nice shimmery soft highlight without being too blinding. Blends easily, looks natural on the skin
  54. Supermodel glow


    This gives such a beautiful sheen! Makes your skin look dewy with no shimmer. Can layer it with a powder highlight if you like an intense glow.
  55. Good highlighter


    Great highlighter though I find it could be more obvious. It's creamy and blendable.
  56. on the daily


    i love this highlighter!

    i use it every day for work as it gives a really nice subtle 'from within' glow.

    i never use the sponge tip as i prefer to pat/blend it in with my fingers
  57. natural and flattering


    its really nice for a subtle highlight
  58. Amazing


    I've use this just twice but I love it. It feels amazing and gives me a nice soft look.
  59. Love this stuff


    I got a sample of this stuff and I absolutely love it!!!! I was running out so I had to purchase the full size. The price is a little steep but I think it's worth it. I do have other highlighters but this is my go to. Plus, I've gotten compliments when i use it.
  60. Nice


    This is a nice highlighter if you want a very subtle look.
  61. Daily go to


    Have been using this for years! Each tube lasts for ages!
    I don’t really use the applicator end - prefer to pat it onto my skin - bridge of my nose and cheekbones.
    I have highlighters such as Charlotte Tilbury compact but I keep going back to this one.
    It looks even better after an hour or so, and I apply as needed day/night and it is suitable for both.
    No breakouts or irri...

  62. Long time favourite!


    I LOVE Watt's Up! I've been repurchasing this product for a few years now. It's easy to apply, looks phenomenal, it adds the perfect shimmer under my brows or on the cheekbone.
  63. Love this stuff

  64. Nice


    Nice and soft really natural great for daily use
  65. Natural highlight


    Very natural looking highlighter, definitely not comparable to the Becca pressed skin perfectors. I normally use this on days with no to minimal makeup to create a dewy/subtle glow. Makes skin look healthy and glowy.
  66. Nice cream highlighter


    Nice highlighter, easy to blend and I like using it on its own. The colour is good for my light skin and I often use this on days I don't ant to wear lots of makeup and I always get compliments.
  67. Great product


    I love cream highlighters as I feel like they look so much more natural and luminous on the skin, rather than just glittery. This is a great formula for putting over foundation or even on bare skin, adds a beautiful glow and stays on quite well for a cream product. The colour also works really well on my fair skin.
  68. Amazingly Easy & Pretty


    I have around 8 highlighters sitting in my makeup case, and this is my absolute favourite! The cream to powder formula never ceases to amaze me, and I love that it has the ability to vary intensity depending on application. It is such a naturally exquisite colour and I believe would flatter any skin type! I rave about this to everyone I meet, haha!
  69. True champagne colour highlight


    Love the colour of this highlight. Blends beautifully on bare skin or on top of cream foundations but after you've powdered.
  70. The perfect highlighter!


    This highlighter is pretty much one of the best I have used and I have used A LOT of highlighters from various brands, so that goes to say a lot!
    Firstly, I generally use this product to give my cheek and brow bones a more prominent appearance. It definitely makes both my cheek and brow bones stand out a lot more and gives my face a lot more of an balanced and angular appearance (which is so...

  71. Great for all skin types


    I have quite olive skin and struggle to find a good highlighter that si subtle but this is great. Love the colour and the consistency of the cream. I usually use a powder over it during day wear to tone down the shine and without for a more statement look.
  72. LOVE this


    I have combination skin and this is honestly the best cream highlighter i have purchased! It is so buildable which i love, it means i can use it both day and night depending on what look i want. I love that it comes in a stick because it means i can use it all over my body as a shimmer. It also last forever which is amazing, so definitely worth the price! Everyone should own one!
  73. Very pretty


    My skin type is sensitive and combination. I really like the consistency of this highlighter and it gives such a lovely glow. This highlighter does what it says and I would definitely recommend it for everyone.
  74. Holy grail


    I have oily skin and struggle to find highlighters that don't make me look greasy and this product doesn't! It gives the most stunning glow and can be used in so many different ways. It also lasts such a long time as it is in a stick form so well worth the money. I also really like the sponge that comes on the other end as it blends really well, which is surprising considering most brushes that co...

  75. Love the colour


    I love the colour of this highlighter! It's a true champagne, natural looking highlight. I do find it hard to blend sometimes when I have other make up on because of the consistency but it does look amazing on a bare face for a bit of glow!
  76. Great colour


    I am obsessed with this shade and how it blends into my makeup. It gives you that glow from within look. I am so over that blinding highlight and this gives me that natrual look.
  77. Wow


    I really love this. One of the only stick highlighter I actually like. The colour is so pretty on my light skin tone. I am obsessed.
  78. Perfect champagne highlighter


    This is such a lovely natural highlight! I have pale skin and this champagne colour gives me a nice warm glow. I usually just pat it in using my fingers, I think the warmth helps it melt into my skin better. It also looks good on no makeup days to give bare skin a bit of healthy glow. If I want a more dramatic night-time look I use this as a base and then use a powder highlight on top.
  79. Great colour


    I got this in a mini size a while ago and I absolutely love this highlighter. It's such a prefect champagne for my light skin.
  80. Perfect for everyday natural wear


    I love trying out highlighters but this is the only one that I have repurchased. It's not too sparkly so it just gives out a natural sheen which is perfect for the 'no makeup' makeup look. It comes with a sponge on the other end of the tube which is handy but I prefer to apply it with my fingers as I've found swiping the product from the tube directly onto my face and blending with the sponge take...

  81. Found the One!!


    I have been searching for a nice lit from within glow and THIS IS IT!! It's nice and dewy highlighter with a lit from within glow on the skin. Love this on no makeup days. It works well over makeup too.
  82. Pretty sheen


    I liked this blusher the fact that is a cream it glides on the skin and gives it a nice subtle sheen so its suitable for day wear.My only gripe is it is on the expensive side so would be a one time splurge only.But in saying that the tube is gorgeous and it would probably last a while.

    I have a lot of highlighters. Like, probably an unnecessary amount. This isn't my favourite, but it's pretty damn good, and the fact that it's different enough from anything else I own makes it a great addition to my collection.

    I really like the champagne colour this highlighter offers, and the fact that it doesn't have big glitter particles in it really appeals to me. It's a great g...

  84. easy to use subtle highlighter


    Easy to apply and blend, my skin seems to like it better than high beam. Like the champagne colour, but def more subtle than the pink sheen of high beam
  85. Amazing


    One word.... Amazing!! I have super fair skin and have tried so many highlighters in the hope of finding one that sits right in my skin. This is incredible and I would definitely recommend it to anyone
  86. love love love!


    I have very light skin, so I was a bit hesitant to buy this but I am so glad I did!

    It's got this beautiful champagne colour which blends in really nicely to give a natural look for your cheek and brow bones. It makes my skin look amazing and so radiant! The sponge also helps to blend it in more evenly.

    It is a bit expensive though, but it is a pretty large stick and wil...

    This was on my wish list for ages and finally got my hands on it a few months ago....I'm so glad I did buy it. I was a little unsure as I have pale skin and I didn't know how it would look - but it's perfect for my skin colour. I'm 44 and am addicted to highlighters and illuminators as I love the way they take years off my face by giving a healthy glow to strategic places.

    I am on the eternal search for a great highlighter to wear every day and I thought this could be it! Unfortunately it is a little glittery and obvious in natural light (though perhaps it's just my skin!!).

    It does however have a lovely champagne colour which is nice for something different to the pinky-white or dark/bronze highlighters that seem to be everywhere.
