  • "this product was an impulse buy for me. i saw that my local store was clearing them out and i noticed it and decided to try it.at first i wasn't sure what to do with it. facial whip? ok... still not sure what that means but yes after opening i realised that it would be an amazing highlighter.i bought the shade lilac petal and i think it looks stunning as a cheek highlight.i personally don't use too much as i feel that it quite heavy on the face and a little goes a long way. i apply with my fingers and then dust a little extra highlight powder over the top.overall for the price i paid, it's not a bad highlight at all." in 597 reviews
  • "It is a bit sticky though so what I like to do is mix it with a bit of moisturizer, a BB cream or even some liquid foundation and then apply it to th apples of my cheeks, along my cheek bones and maybe on my brow bone if I am going for a slightly less "made up" look." in 5 reviews

Love love love! I actually got mine from Shop Miss A and I did love it a lot. It does blend out but I recommend using your fingers instead of beauty blender. It comes in different undertones. It has shimmery to it. I would 100% buy it again, infact, I have and I use it on my clients. In order to get an even glowier look, I use highlight powder on top of it for more coverage but make sure it dries out before you do or else you will not be able to blend. Also this is one of those highlights you can add into your foundation for a dewy look.

This is a perfect highlighter for the high points on your face and only $1.00?! Are you kidding me?! It has a very pretty yet soft scent to it. In my opinion, a highlighter is necessary during the winter months due to our skin trying to flaunt how extremely dry it gets. I personally like a little bit of highlight to camouflage exactly how dry my skin is, while at the same time brightening my face up. You can't go wrong....unless you over do it while applying it.

I like it a little bit because the problem is that it's so shiny but when you put it on you have to like rub it for a really long time and messes up your foundation and I recommend using an airbrush which helps it set on your skin but I don't really like this product I wouldn't buy this again and I am I recommend it to people that like this product but I don't like it

I bought this recently in the color Pink Lemonade during a sale for $0.40. Beautiful vibrant pigmentation and a little goes a long way. With the sticky texture it's easy to apply a lot and ruin your makeup.
I have a big problem with a liquid shimmer juice that comes out even if I shake it forever!
I wouldn't buy it again even if it were free.

I have the peachy shade. It's very gorgeous! Easy to blend, smooth texture, doesn't go patchy, and reflects beautifully. It isn't a glittery highlight like some nor is it a insane highlighter like ABH or JS. It's a pretty glow. Good for the 1$ price tag. (It's great as a base! Apply this on your cheeks first then put a powder highlight on top!)

You cannot go wrong with this little baby! It is so pigmented and only costs $1! I have the shade lilac petal and I want to get the peach shade next for my tan skin. I like to apply his with my cream products and set it with a powder highlight on top, gorgeous!

These elf shimmer whips are awesome! !!!! They really do pack a punch 👊👊👊 for them to be a little you wouldn't expect the pigmentation you get out of them. I really do enjoy them. I have 2 and they are awesome!!! I Don't Reach For Them ALOT But They Are AWESOME 😍

This highlighter is great for the price! Who can beat a dollar?! It is a little sticky but if you work with it a little bit at a time you can blend it out pretty easily. You can create a subtle highlight or a somewhat intense highlight If you build it up. The color is beautiful, it's a very shimmery pink so I feel like it would work for many skin tones. I didn't give it the full five star rating because it is not as intense as other highlighters, still beautiful though.

I love highlighters and illuminators. I mainly go for powder highlighters but i do have a few liquid ones. If you're expecting that BABAMM glow you will not get it here. Its more of a lit from within glow. You could always layer a powder on top to make that glow even brighter. For the price id say its totally worth it. Great product!

I love this whip and have used it as opposed to my more expensive highlighters. It makes a great base and a little goes a long way. My only con is it is a little heavy feeling and sticky, but that feeling subsides after about 10 minutes. I compare this to high beam and I love it. Plus it's like 2 or 3 dollars depending where you go.

I've been to various drugstores but I cannot seem to find this product anywhere (and I'd rather not pay for online shipping). Which stores carry this product?
