  • "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 love this product! It only costs $1 and it comes with a lot of product. Basically you apply a small amount on your finger and apply like a highlighter. Only downside is that it does dry really quickly leaving your face splotchy. However, for the price I would recommend.

I love these facial whips! They are so versatile, and the colors are amazing! I use them as highlighters, eye shadow primer, etc. The facial whips blend out so nice and can be built up if needed. I love the price point, and they are easy to get your hands on.

i'm the type of person that needs like a jeffreye star type highlight. i like it because it gives me that except that i don't prefer a cream based highlight. the powder highlighters fit better for me. but the consistency is fluffy and really nice on the skin.

This is a big negative for me. I didn't like the way it looked on my skin, I didn't like the formula, I didn't like the texture. It wasn't as pigmented as I would have liked. I am more of a ABH fan or even the freakin Wet and Wild highlight thing is better than this

This is such a good, cheap, baller highlighter. The colors are lovely, and it gives you that highlight without the sparkles. You can't be shmearing it all over because it will move your other makeup, so just take your time. A little dab will do you just fine!

First I love the fact that elf is coming out with like a nice affordable highlighter. I love the texture it's not too liquidy no it's not too thick a little goes a long way. You can use on the high parts of your cheek ,the bridge of your nose , Cupid's bow .. nice glow.

I bought this for a dollar and it may have been the best $1 ever spent! I got the shade precious petals and it's so pretty! It also somehow smells like fruit loops which is amazing! Not too glittery or chunky. I use it under foundation on the high points of my cheeks for a glow

This is a wonderful product that is cheap and pigmented. It leaves a gentle highlight that isn't too harsh. I like to use it on my brow bone, my cheekbone, and the cupids bow of my lips. It is pink and subtle on really pale skin and I would definitely buy it again.

I bought one of these a long time ago, from what I remember about this you can use it on your cheeks, lips, eyeshadow and even as a highlight. It is multi purposed and is very affordable at $1.00! I would recommend if you are looking for cheap alternatives!

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?
