This is a good highlighter for the price! I like the color for more natural makeup. Also there was a weird layer on top when I first got it, I thought it was broken but I read reviews to scrape that layer off. But nonetheless I love the way it looks on my skin! But definitely wish it was a littler smoother to put on. Still love 💕

I usually love everything elf, but after purchasing this baked highlighter that changed. The highlight looks stunning in the container but when swatched it's super chunky. I've read that if you cut back the first layer it works better but I don't want to waste the top half of my product to have a bomb highlight. It's hard to pick up smoothly on a brush and applies chunking on the fingers...the product isn't on the luxurious side so maybe cutting the top layer would be worth it for you.

These are such amazing and affordable highlighters. I think the only downside to these highlighters is that for the top layer you are going to have to scratch it off before you can get any real pigment and nice glow from these highlighters. But besides that these highlighters are so beautiful on the skin, they aren’t chalky, they don’t look patchy, they are easy to blend, and they have such great pigment.

First of all this highlighter is $3. I have the shade in midnight pearls and it’s been my go to for a year now. You can apply a small amount and get a more natural glow or you can wet your brush with setting spray and get a glammed up sparkling glow. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a cheap highlighter that acts like something high end.

Review for: Pink Diamonds more...
I was very excited about this product because of the price, but was very disappointed. You literally have to rub your makeup brush on the product at least 20 times to get even a small amount onto the brush.....it makes zero sense!! And then when you finally get it onto the brush, it’s literally nothing. It’s about a 30 minute process. It looks good when you put it on, but the application part is horrible. Maybe I just got a bad product, but I won’t be buying again.

I have this in Moonlight Pearls and it is great!!!! The perfect subtle and natural looking highlighter! I'll even layer other highlighters on top sometimes if I want more glow! Perfect for the little places like nose, cupid's bow, and brow bone. Actually the brow bone is probably my favorite way to use it honestly! It creates the perfect highlight and blends amazingly with the rest of my eyeshadow!

Review for: (6 Pack) e.l.f. Studio Baked Highlighter Moonlight Pearls more...
This was the second highlighter I’ve ever purchased and it remains one of holy grail products! This highlighter is perfect for that intense highlight effect you may be going for! It’s only $4 and it’s amazing! Mine has broken a few times from me dropping it but I refuse to throw it away! It has a very iridescent and light infusing formula that no matter how much you put on you’ll always be shining!

Review for: 3 Pack e.l.f. Cosmetics Studio Baked Highlighter 83704 Moonlight Pearls more...
This color is a dupe for the powder highlighter in the light version of the  Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter . It is a beautiful white/silvery shimmer without looking glittery or metallic. It is still very wearable for everyday and easily buildable. You do have to scrape off the top which is a bit of a pain but the packaging is small and easy for travel which is a great plus.

i love this highlight because when ever i need a little shine this highlight does the job its so shimmery and i honestly did not appect tobe such a good highlight its easy to apply without getting it everywhere 

i love when i go outside with this product it always makes my skin glow and my friends are always like "damn look at that highlight IT'S POPPIN" or someone it asking me what highlight am i using 

the best thing about it is a CHEAP very pigmented highlighter i am considering to buy more shades and review about it

This highlighter is a great buy. For $3 this will give you an awesome glow. Building it up is easy and it doesn't look gritty or rough on the skin like some shimmer products can do. The tip of scraping off the top layer of elf's baked products is a must with this though to really help it perform it to its best potential, which is a bit annoying. Highly recommend using a wet brush with this too to get an intense glow.
