  • "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

This is pretty nice especially considering the price tag. I would recommend using it underneath a powder highlighter as on it's own it gives more of a natural glow. However it really helps make that powder highlight pop and last longer throughout the day. I would recommend checking it out if you enjoy cream/liquid highlighters.

I really wanted to like this but I just don't, I love elf but this let me down! I don't know if there is a different way to apply it or something I can mix it with to make it less sticky but it's sooooo sticky and very hard to blend and the color payoff is horrible and it just ends up looking patchy and makes my skin feel gross

The shimmer payoff from this product is insane. It's absolutely gorgeous! Unfortunately, the shade that I have is incredibly pink and I have to be very careful how much I use. A little goes a VERY long way! It does dry and set quickly and well, but not so quickly that you cannot blend it out efficiently. The texture is smooth and silky, making it very wearable.

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.
For me this product did not work. I did not like the way this product set on my face,and it was really hard to blend out . I did like the color selection to bad it didnt set well

I have a lot of highlighters and I can be pretty picky. This one is a great option for people on a budget (it's only 1 dollar!!). It's a beautiful pinky toned highlighter, making it perfect for fair/cool skin. It has a mousy texture, and is fairly long lasting. My preferred method of using this is as a base for a powder highlighter. Especially when I'm going for a strong highlighter look. Or I will wear it alone on minimal makeup days for a dewy look.

If you are new to makeup and want to get into highlighting without purchasing a pallet for an arm and a leg. The texture is so smooth, light, and the shimmer is so beautiful on the skin it brings a natural healthy glow. If you want a product does what it promises and won't break the bank this is definitely worth buying. Can't say enough good things.

This is a highly pigmented, white highlighter packed with tons of silver shimmer. It blends reasonably easily, but the shade is just too obvious on my warm-toned, light-medium complexion. This product might be more suited to very fair skin tones with cool undertones, but I would only use this for costume or stage makeup looks.

These are not the best highlighters out there. They are kind of difficult to use and they are sticky. If you are just starting out in makeup and want to give them a shot, I think they are fine for that purpose, especially considering they are only a dollar. If you want a really good highlighter for fairly cheap, I would recommend checking out Colourpop

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?
