I LOVE THIS HIGHLIGHT. The first time i applied it I fell in love. It gives you such a natural but illuminating highlight that just brightens your face. The only thing i would say that i didn’t like about it is you can’t apply with with your beauty blender, it has to be applied with a brush or your fingers for the best results
This product is AMAZING. I’ve just recently purchased it, but have been using it everyday and am getting compliments on my highlight! It’s so affordable, I purchased it from Walmart for only $3. It lasts all day and is easy to use. I just use my fingers to apply and blend. Definitely one of my new favorites.
When I first bought and opened it, I was a little let down. I was more oily than I care to put on my skin. As far as the shimmer of the highlight, it wasn't great. It gave a good shimmer, but it reminds me to much of the liquid lip gloss I used when i was like 12.
THIS PRODUCT IS THE BEST. When I say the best, I do mean it. The elf highlighter gives you the most blinding highlight. It’s definitely part of my everyday make up bag. Before you use it, shake it up and little goes a long way when you put it on your skin. It gives you an amazing glow, even waaaay more blinding when you set it with the highlighting powder. The best part is, it’s less than $5.
I really wanted to like this product, but no matter how many times I tried it, I just didn't. This never actually looked like a highlight on my face, instead it looked incredibly oily and not flattering at all. If you top it with a powder highlight it looks better, but if you are going for a natural highlight you will not achieve it with this product. The only pro for this highlight is the pricetag.
This liquid illuminator is so beautiful. It’s affordable, blinding, and blends so easily. It helps make any highlighter I put on top pop even more, and helps it last long too. I think for $4 this is totally worth it because you can use it as a primer or a highlighter, plus the formula is great! I highly recommend this :) e.l.f.

Was happy to try this new bare liquid highlighter. I was disappointed with the way it turns out when applying it. I believe it's to runny for you to apply even with shaking it the highlight still doesn't come out great. When applying the product is doesn't apply well and leaves patches.
Omg! This cream highlighter is the bomb! I love it so much and the price is the best part! It's like two dollars at Walmart. I've bought it several times and won't stop there. I use it for eyeshadow priming, to make my cheeks stand out, and put it on top of my lipstick to make them appear fuller. Such a fantastic highlighter!
Really pretty champagne-colored highlighter that has an oily base with suspended shimmery particles. I like to pair this with the Natural Face Palette. You will need to shake this before using, since the formula does separate a bit, but that's not a deal breaker for me. It's a lovely product, especially at its price point!
I love, love e.l.fs liquid highlighter because it's easy to put it on, gives a natural glow, and stays on! Also it makes my skin look gorgeous! Also it's so flipping cheap! I love that when I put this highlighter on it does not look "cakey". I am very pleased this is in my makeup bag! Very awesome all around!
