Not into this product. I usually like elf products for their inexpensive and decent qualities, however this was not a go for me. I bought the three different shades online and NONE of them are pigmented. I swatch them and nothing transfers to the finger or a brush (or a wet brush for that matter). They're terrible - and I'm not one to bash any product, but they truly are a waste of time and money (even at their cheap price).

Review for: Apricot Glow more...
This is a beautiful highlighter. It goes on very nicely and is great for the price you pay. The only thing with baked presses powders is that you sometimes have to scrape off the top layer to get some good pigment. But once you get to the “under” layer, you’re good to go. I’ve the Apricot glow for work sometimes and always get complimented on it. It leaves you glowing for a lot less.

Review for: Pink Diamonds, Moonlight Pearls more...
I have three shades of this highlighter and I love them all! This is the BEST drugstore highlighter. For $4 you cannot beat this! For best results, scape off the top layer before you use it, because it is baked and has a hard top. Moonlight pearls is my go to, daily highlighter - but it’s so pretty and I love it so much that i literally wore this $4 highlighter on my wedding day!

Review for: e.l.f. Studio Baked Highlighter 0.17 oz (5g) - Moonlight Pearls more...
So I bought a bunch of makeup brushes off of the e.l.f. website and since I spent over $35, they sent me a free mini make up kit, which included this highlighter. I was a little hesitant at first because it is e.l.f. so I knew I wasn't going to be that impressed, boy was I wrong...

This highlighter is actually really great! It's a little rough feeling, its not like that soft buttery feel, but it glides onto the skin well and blends nice. You can easily build the coverage up. When you first put it on, it won't be that blinding, but after the second layer you can see that it's starting to show up even more. I love using this on my brow bone too.

I have really fair skin, so this shade looks amazing on me, but I know it will look great on any tone!

Review for: Blush Gems more...
This is a good product in terms of a bright shine on your face and don't get me wrong I love it as I my other elf products I just believe that this is more just glitter that sits on your face not like and actual highlighter, like it is just like glitter in a powder when good highlighters give you that "Woah!", you get it? Well I would recommend it if you just wanna bright glitter but if you want a good highlighter I would not recommend it.

I don’t know why everyone spends tens and tens of dollars on high end highlighters when this baked highlighter from E.L.F. exists! I have the shade moonlight pearls and I couldn’t be happier with the quality and shimmer of this product. It isn’t blinding, but that’s exactly what I’m going for. It’s very natural and gives you a dewy glow. The shimmer isn’t like a Twilight vampire, it’s more light and subtle. I find that this product lasts ALL day (even when I’m in that Coachella heat for a music festival. I always get compliments on it and people ask if my skin is that dewy or if it’s a highlighter. And for the price, I’m SO down!

Review for: Moonlight Pearls more...
I was in need of a new highlighter so I decided to look up the best bang for your buck drugstore highlighter. This was the winner so I made a purchase. This highlighter is super pigmented on my finger and gives a natural glow. However, this highlighter really has an issue with gripping onto my brushes. I've tried different types & brands of brushes but still nothing.

I really loved the colors on these highlighters and they were on clearance at Target, so I had to get them. I like the look of them on my face, but it is so. darn. hard! I can wipe my brush all over it and none will come off! It’s like there’s a coating on the top of the product. Maybe I just got defective or old highlighter, but it’s definitely more difficult to apply.

Review for: Moonlight Pearls more...
This is a good highlighter but i have to use a facial spray to really get it to be showing. If you guys like natural highlights then you would like this.. but for me, a highlight/highlighter lover, i was kinda disappointed because it wasn’t showing a lot of pigmentation on my skin. I have to use a facial spray and a couple of good layers to make it look really popin’

Review for: Moonlight Pearls more...
I love this so much but there is somethings that I don’t like at all. For one when you get the highlighter you have to rub your fingers just to get the first layer off. No one told me that and I didn’t like the product until I came across a YouTube video reviewing this highlighter. Here is a tip if you buy this product: wet the brush that you will apply the highlighter on your face. It will give you the best results!
