Benefit: Watt’s Up?

Benefit just keep knocking them out of the park. The newest release from the cheeky brand from San Francisco is this cute, yet practical, soft focus highlighter. During the winter months you have to tone down the bronzer, so highlighters are the easiest way to create definition and contouring. This cream-to-powder finish is perfect for creating a really subtle light on cheekbones to inject a dash of health into cold cheeks.

The product is double ended, with the highlighter being in stick form on one end and a soft foam smudger on the other. The highlighter is not unlike a chubby stick or fat balm, sweeping over the cheeks directly to enable light to be added to the specific areas required. It’s quite unusual to have a highlighter in this form, but it definitely has its benefits – not smashing in your bag for one!

The colour is a soft gold with a hint of peach that blends into the skin, creating very subtle shimmers that catch the light. It turns into a powder-type finish, meaning that it’s perfect for those of you that don’t like a dewy glow. Its handy little pack is genius, making it perfect for taking around with you without fear of busting it – the highlighter is double contained, so there’s no way it’s going to highlight the inner lining of your bag! Another great little product from Benefit that delivers on all accounts.

Available now priced £23.50 (Ok, it’s not cheap but the pack makes it worth it!)

    If you think of it in grams, it's actually much better value for money than say a MeMeMe highlighter brick. It will last for yonks, so you can think of it as an investment… If that helps!!
