The Benefit Miss Glow It All Highlighter Palette is one of two new cheek palettes that Benefit have launched this summer. 2021 is a special year for the brand, as it’s officially twenty years since they launched the original Hoola Bronzer.
In addition to the Benefit Miss Glow It All Highlighter Palette, they’ve also launched The Contourist Bronzer Palette too. Keep on reading, to read my review…
“Light things up with this limited-edition slimline palette featuring Benefit’s fan-fave Watt’s Up! highlighter in original rose gold plus 3 EXCLUSIVE new shades.
These creamy, soft-focus highlighters go on smooth and have a blendable, cream-to-powder finish. They’ll make all your gleams come true!“
The Benefit Cosmetics Miss Glow It All Highlighter Palette is a brand new four-pan highlighter palette, featuring their iconic, bestseller; the Watts Up! Highlighter shade which is called Rose Gold within the palette, plus 3 brand-new exclusive shades.
The slimline palette design is ultra-portable for gorgeous cheeks on-the-go. Mix & match the shades to create endless bold, berry & bronze looks that’ll make sparks fly!
The original version of Watts Up! is a stick format cream highlighter, so it’s interesting to see them create a palette using the stick highlighter’s formula, and the shades are described as being suitable for the face, eyes and body too.
The Benefit Miss Glow It All Highlighter Palette is £28.50 / $32 has cardboard packaging, and features a mirror in the lid. Benefit market this palette as containing four shades of the Watt’s Up! highlighter, with the same formula as the original, and are said to have a blendable, cream-to-powder finish.
The four shades within the Benefit Miss Glow It All Highlighter Palette are;
- Rose Gold (the original Benefit Watts Up! Highlighter)
- Peach Gold (NEW)
- Soft Gold (NEW)
- Bronze Gold (NEW)
I love the original Watts Up! Highlighter, but it’s more a champagne gold, and it’s different to the shade ‘Rose Gold’ within the palette which is supposed to be the same as the original Watts Up!, and it’s deeper too.
I have to say, the formula isn’t the same as the stick version either. The shades within the Benefit Miss Glow It All Highlighter Palette are more sheer too, and are definitely less luminous too.
They are still beautiful highlighters, but the formula isn’t comparable to that of the original, nor is the shade which is a little disappointing, if like me, you were hoping for the Watts Up! highlighter in a palette format.
Both Peach Gold and Soft Gold are identical when applied to the skin too, even though they look completely different in the palette.
They just look like a light champagne gold, and truthfully, there’s very, very little difference between Rose Gold, Peach Gold and Soft Gold. I do wish there was a greater variation between the shades, but it’s still a beautiful palette, and all four shades look pretty on the skin.
