  • "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

I wear a full face of makeup so this didnt work for me. It would be great for a young girl who will wear it without other makeup. I actually used mine as an eyeshadow primer. Its very very inexpensive.

I just love this product. It's so inexpensive and it works as a great blush and lippie. I own the pink lemonade and I love how I can use it on just about any aspect of my face. I love using it as a lip product or a blush especially. When I buy again I'll probably get the other colors so I can use it as a highlighter more.

these are amazing little highlighters for $1! So shimmery and reflective, and a little goes a really long way. And they are very versatile - you can use as a luminizer to mix a little bit into your foundation, use alone as a highlight, layer under powder for extra lasting power, and can also use on your eyes and lips!

The liquid highlighter comes in a pump bottle – love the square shape, the translucent cap and the look of the bottle. The cap and pump are the signature deep blue of Chambor packaging with the Chambor rose inscribed on the top of the cap. have this in Persimmon, which I actually got as a free gift a while back and I'm just getting around to using now.

This is one of my favorite drugstore highlighters! For only $2! Intense highlight. Some people find it sticky but I can't say as I notice. A little goes a long way!

These shimmering facial whips are one of those hidden, inexpensive, and supremely USEFUL products. The tubes look tiny when you get them, but they hold .34 oz, which is about the same amount as most of the mascara tubes I own, and they're pretty pigmented so a little product goes along way. The spotlight one is a good highlighter, but I will say it's not my favorite(I prefer the pink/peach ones). It's still really nice and I always have one on hand.

Good product, especially for only one dollar! It's a strong highlight in a beautiful color. I personally put a bit on the back of my hand, rub it in, and then apply with a brush. This helps it not look streaky and more glowy. Sometimes I apply a powder highlight over it and it helps it stick. Great little product from e.l.f.!

It doesn't work well for because it's a liquid hilihhter. Not very pigmented and I love me some pigmented highlighters! I don't really recommend this unless you want a suddle makeup look.

I love to use this as a base under my highlighter. if you don't put a powder on top of it I think that it can look a little cakey or sticky but every time I use it as a base I get complements on my highlighter. It's such a useful product to have and I think it's $1. Also, it smells like fruity pebbles which I like!

This is an odd product to me because the consistency is more like a lipgloss. It smells like fruity pebbles and when used as a highlight on the face, BLEND. This product is pretty on the cupids bow, the tip of the nose, and brow bone, but not all over cheeks. The formula is too thick to use on large areas of the face

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?
