Benefit Turns Up The Wattage With New Highlighter

When I first heard the name of this new highlighter from Benefit, I immediately had flashbacks of that obnoxious Budweiser commercial that plagued prime time television during my high school years. Thankfully there is nothing obnoxious or déclassé about this gorgeous product-definitely another addition to Benefit's claim to fame
If the name doesn't clue you in to what this product is supposed to do, then the packaging dispels all doubt. The box is a novelty, mimicking a vintage light case with the actual product looking like...you guessed it-a light bulb. The applicator is double ended with the highlighter on one end and a sponge on the other. Initially I thought that the sponge also applied product, but it is just for blending purposes. It really isn't that affective and fingers work much better for blurring away any fine edges, not to mention that it will be impossible to clean, ergo, unsanitary. 
The product itself is WATTerful! So easy to apply by gliding over the cheekbones or rubbing on to your finger and smoothing it over your browbone and cupid's bow. It applies as a cream but sets as a powder (similar to NARS Multiples) so you don't have any oily residue to wetness to the skin. The colour is a perfect nude champagne that is perfectly luminous and will work on any skin tone. I liken it as a colour dupe for the Chanel Soleil Tan Sunless illuminator (and significantly more affordable). 

Grade: A+
