This or That Thursday: Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity vs.Benefit Watt’s Up

I originally considered calling this series Thurs-dupe but decided that was a bit too corny.  Anyway, today’s battle is between Benefit Watt’s Up and Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick in the shade Sparkling Sands (which is also available in more of a cool toned pinky shade.)

Both products are creamy twist up highlighter sticks that impart a golden sheen onto skin.  Watt’s Up may be just a hint warmer, but the two are practically identical once blended.

A full size Watt’s Up costs $30 for .33 oz of product, while Chic Luminosity is $10.99 for .37 oz.  It’s also worth mentioning that although Benefit markets itself as cruelty-free , it is actually sold in China which means the company funds animal testing.

The verdict: Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick in Sparkling Sands is a cruelty-free dupe for Benefit Watt’s Up for roughly 1/3 the price for slightly more product.
