  • "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 used to love this in high school. However now, I'm not a huge fan. It's pretty, don't get me wrong. But i prefer it as an eye shadow opposed to a shimmer/highlighter.

Don't love it but don't hate it, as well. I use to find it really hard to blend but then I figured out that blending with my fingers works a lot better with this product. Very cheap so it wouldn't hurt to try it out for those who are seeking a nice shimmer glow. I apply it on my cheeks and the tip of my nose. Would probably buy again.

I feel like I own the entire line of Elf products lol The price and quality are amazing. This color is so beautiful and easy to blend. It smells great too. I think it is great for all skin types. A light formula but highly pigmented. Just need a little goes a long way. Highly recommend and will continue to buy.

Such a great product for the price. It is a thicker consistency, so if you're going to apply it over a large area, I would suggest mixing it with a concealer or foundation. But the color is gorgeous, and it's a great highlighter. I love using it on the Cupid's bow, eyes, nose and cheekbones. Smells great too!

It's a really nice glow it gives you a nice pink glow but the thing I don't really like is that it's to much of a liquid it can't sray in my hand before it slips and is on the floor .

I wanted to try this after I heard so much hype. This is the best highlighter I found! You can use this anywhere on your face. It is non sticky and makes your skin glow! I use the on my cheekbones and on the bridge of my noise to highlight my face and it does an amazing job and a dewy perfect finish. I added a picture of my face using this.

I have the light pink one and it's absolutely gorgeous. It's blendable, stays for a while, and looks similar to benefit's high beam illuminator. When I want something warm I just brush a yellow based/gold powder highlight over it, or I use Mac's vanilla pigment for a cool tone and the elf whip really makes it shine.

I saw this on Pinterest and snagged one the next trip I made to Target. I wanted to use it for highlighting and contouring, but found that it was really hard to blend. I use primer and a blending sponge and it was hard to get rid of the streak I'd applied. I tossed it after a couple of applications. It sounds like others have had more success than myself, but there are lots of other highlighting creams that I much prefer to use.

A great alternative to the cover FX custom enhancer drops. These can be placed at the highpoints of the cheeks for a healthy glow. Plus they smell like Froot Loops.

Gorgeous highlight. I apply it straight from the tube in little dots along the top of my cheek bones and my brow bone, then pat and blend with my fingers. I often will go over with a fluffy brush or fan brush as well to diffuse a bit more, even double layer with another highlight if I'm feelin REAL fancy.

Is it pigmented? And on the face is feeling heavy?

Does this show up as a pink color or just a sheer shimmer? I have very, very pale skin for reference, if it matters.

Does this work very well is it a strong highlight? or just a light fade? I really want to get all cream stuff I just have powder right now?
