Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter

Benefit have a new glow-giving highlighter offering that apparently has been inspired by a light bulb. One end of the packaging has the twist up creamy highlighter and the other end has a little round sponge to blend.
I think the sponge part is pretty pointless personally, firstly it seems to just wipe the highlighter away rather than blend it and also I don’t like that it’s a bit awkward to wash. But all that being said, I do really like the creamy peach shade of the highlighter.

The highlighter is a warm peachy champagne shade that has a glow but not full of sparkle (instant turn-off for me) it’s creamy and blends nicely. I think the shade is best suited to paler skin shades as think it might just vanish on darker skins? 
I’ll be using this for a bit of a subtle winter glow on the tops of cheeks plus maybe a touch on the brown bone.
Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter is available now from or (where you can get a free face emulsion gift with purchase) for £24.50
