I really love highlighters and Benefit is a great brand, so I really wanted these products. Other highlighters I’ve tried are too bright, but these ones are really discreet, but still beautiful. Let’s compare them 🙂
First, Girl Meets Pearl. It gives a lovely soft rose-gold glow and isn’t too obviously bright. It is good to put a bit on the cheekbones and under eyebrows, giving a subtle glow.
It is really lovely, but as I always say, it looks very natural, under foundation or after you apply it, but once you apply a setting powder, that is quite over. I found that applying a specific powder, like the Sheer Bobbi Brown one, can give you a chance to show this highlighter. But still, a lot fades. If you wear it in the summer, just to add a healthier look to your skin, without powder and foundation, then it’s great!
Both are good, but the Watt’s Up one tends to show more, even under a setting powder. As I said, to show it, it depends on the powder you want to wear. The Sheer Bobbi Brown one is the one I recommend, and still, when you apply it most of the illuminizing effect fades.
