Benefit Watts Up ... I Will Not Be Subscribing to Your Vlog

Does anyone else watch that gosh awful Beauty Vlogger Boot Camp mini-show by the Fowler sisters? It's like a really bad car accident where I want to look away so badly but I can't... I just can't!

Anyway, on to my very disappointing rant? Is that what I would say about a product I am quite disappointed with? I guess. So yes, my rant on Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up highlighter stick-type-product, haha!

Let me just let you guys know how excited I was to buy this! I chose this out of all the other powder highlighters that I was absolutely in grosses with as well but though ... cream blush, all the way! Now this little guy is very deceiving. 

Whenever I swatched it on my hand and on my cheeks in the Sephora store it looked SO good and SO flattering. I bring it home, go to use it and it looks like absolute nothingness. I'm lying; it actually looks like my cheeks are sweating, and not just that but sweating shimmer in a bad way. I'm all for covering every inch of my body in glitter but this was just ... wrong. And don't even get me started on the itty bitty applicator it comes with. It does zip, zilch, didly squat. It just bends when you go to blend and only glides (not very smoothly) on your face without doing a thing!

I was so disappointed by it that I am now KICKING myself for not looking at some of the awesome highlighters that M.A.C. came out with a while ago. I hate returning things, but this one is going back to Sephora. I don't even have the receipt but this just needs to leave my collection. I feel this was a little hyped up. It's not that great and there are WAY better highlighters out there I'm sure of it. When I find it I'll be sure to share it with you all!

Have any of you recently bought products you're less than thrilled with?



  1. I haven't tried this highlighter before, but I have read a few good reviews on it. It's such a shame that it was a bad product for you! Great review though.
    Would you like to follow each other? :)


    1. I have read only the greatest reviews of it and it performed so well in the store! I am happy for those it works on because it looks gorgeous, but this isn't the product for me!

      & yes! just checked out your blog and it's very lovely :) followed!
