A Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow Dupe

Oh, Jemma Kidd--many sing praises to your 'Light As Air' Foundation (which, for reference, I was never able to try), but my heart sings praises to your highlighter. Yes, we're talking about the Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Cream in Rose Gold. I try not to taunt all of you who are dewy-glow-less by singing its praises time and time again, but now, I can, because I've found a pretty good dupe.

The product in mention? The Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter
The first, and most notable difference between the two, is the storage--the Jemma Kidd in a compact and the Benefit one in a stick form, meaning that the Jemma Kidd one is a bit more stippling brush friendly, but there's no reason why you couldn't first apply to the skin, then blend with a brush for the Benefit. 
Formula wise, the Jemma Kidd has much more of a velvety, dare I say, oily texture, whereas the the Benefit one is far more of a creamy texture. In fact, I think I may like the more sticky quality of the Benefit, where as, sometimes, the Jemma Kidd just seems likes it's sliding off my face, but it also means it's easier to blend.

Nevertheless, my favorite part and why I fell in love with Dewy Glow in the first place was the color. With Watt's Up! on the left and Dewy Glow on the right, you can see that they are very, very similar. If anything, the Jemma Kidd has a hint more orange, whereas the Benefit one is a tad more pink, nevertheless, they appear the  same on the skin.

So--Jemma Kidd, we miss you dearly, but the hole in our hearts are slightly smaller now that we have a replacement. The only problem? How do I choose which one to slap on daily? Houston, we have a problem....


  1. Ooh, this sounds nice...I love Benefit products as I really like their packaging and of course the makeup haha!

  2. I can't get enough of my Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Cream, I shall be so disappointed when i come to finish it. The Benefit highlighter looks a good dupe though :). x

  3. I love benefit's watts up! although I get so pale in the winter it may be too orange for me to use! eek!


  4. never try JK highlighter ,, although i do have the benefit watss up.

  5. I've yet to try any Jemma Kidd products and I'm sobbing that I'll probably never have the chance. But I do have the Benefit's Watts Up highligher and I quite like it. But with all the hype around Jemma Kidd, GAH! COME BACK! I think I'll be grabbing up tubes of the Light As Air Foundation if they ever come back out again! x

  8. The packaging is one of the best parts! And they recently redesigned loads of their stuff. xo

  9. I know, it will be such a shame. Do you have Ice Gold of Rose Gold? xo

  10. I know the fear. But, darn, that thing really turned me during summer. xo

  11. Well then there's no need to feel the guilt. xo

  12. I know what you mean. This was the only thing I've tried. It seems like people liked it more once it was gone rather than when it was readily available. What manipulators! xo

  13. And tell me what you think! xo

  14. I have Ice Gold! I'm pretty pale and thought Rose Gold may be a little too much for me x

  15. I haven't tried Watt's Up yet, but it's in my To-Do pile. You make it sound so tempting!
