This highlighter performs exactas expected. First, you gently scrape off the top layer. Then, you will get the pigment you were waiting for. Though, it does make a hell of a mess everywhere because the formula is quite dry. I bought Blush Gems to test it out as an alternative to MAC Soft & Gentle. I wanted a more subtle highlight to see if I’d like it, but didn’t want to spend the $34 on MAC and then not like it or use it enough. I think it exactly suits my needs. The glow is naturally pretty & somewhat buildable. You’re not going to get blinding out of this unless you wet a brush. It doesn’t seem to emphasize texture either, and it’s not glittery. Just a nice, natural finish.

Stop reading this and go buy this right now! This is the best highlighter to have ever been made ! First of all, it was 3 bucks, like 1 2 3! Just 3 bucks at target. Second it's crulity free, so no animals were hurt while this product was being made. And finally the most important part, it looks amazing! I barly add any and my highlight is litterly blinding. It always looks AMAZING in photos and videos. Every time I go out, someone always asks me what highlight I use which means it stands out. I always buy this for my squad and they love it too! Everyone needs this in their life.

E.L.F is a hit or miss on some of their products but this baked highlighter is one of the best products they have ever had. When I was first getting more into makeup I wanted to try out a highlighter I had seen these in target for $3 I bet I was gonna try it. It is baked so you kind have to scratch off the top layer or just really rub on it but it is so intense. If your anything like me and like an intense highlight these are a great affordable alternative to higher end highlighters. You get a lot of product too so nothing to complain about from me.

I absolutely love this highlighter! It is my go to. Wh n using the product, it is best if you apply with your finger and then blend out with a brush. It look beautiful on any skin tones! It doesn’t show texture at all. It’s a very pale gold, which can be applied once for a natural glow, or built up for a glow that can be seen from a mile away. I love love love this product!!

Review for: Pink Diamonds, Moonlight Pearls more...
This product gets mixed reviews all the time but you just have to know what to expect. It is at first barely there when you first dip into it with your brush and picks up virtually no product. But because of the way it is packed in i gues you just have to scrape off the top layer with a knife or something. Once you remove that top layer it is AMAZING and  SO BEAUTIFUL! You can't expect to spend a few dollars on a makeup product and expect it to have no flaws. Luckily the only flaw can easily be fixed with a quick scrape and it will easily end up being one of the most affordable and favorite highlighters.

I really love this highlighter! I don't use it for every day looks but when i want to feel extra glowy and rosy this is the perfect product. Its so affordable and looks so nice on my skin applied with a fan brush. its powdery but I don't mind at all. if you are having problems getting product on your brush when you first open it to use it just scrape the top layer off (thats the case with a a lot of baked products)

Review for: Blush Gems more...
I have the Blush Gems shade, which was the award winning back in 2013.  When I saw it was only $4.00, I had to try it.  After reading all the others' reviews, they all suggest breaking the first layer for better resolve.  It was really messy to scrape off the first layer.   But more pigment when I use my finger to swatch.  I would recommend apply this highlight with your fingers not any brushes.  When I use a brush, it's like I was putting air on my face.  I would buy this highlight if you want a very subtle glow.

OBSESSED. The only word that comes to mind when I see and use this product. It is perfect for my skin tone, I am not someone who, in the past, loved or used highlighters for my face. I literally fell in love with this product thay my friend recommended this product to me and I figured I would try it. I don't think I will ever go back to not using a highlighter. Again I recommended this product to anyone looking for a highlighter 🙂

After hearing and seeing everyone rave about how good of an option moonlight pearls was for an affordable highlight, I had to purchase it. To be less than $5 I think it's a pretty awesome deal. If you want an awesome highlight that is build-able and you don't want to spend a ton of money or don't know if you want to jump in on the highlighting trend, then go for this one! The shade moonlight pearls is really pretty and supposed to be close to a MAC shade too!
