  • "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

It is a very nice product very shinny although it was almost to shinny it was a very pale pinky undertone good for combination skin very pigmented it's very nice I would recommend this if you are on a budget and want a good highlight

This highlighter is a little heavy for my face, but I love the pearly undertone. If I'm in a pinch and need something, I'll go to the drugstore and buy this since it's only a dollar. But I don't use it on a regular basis because of how heavy it is and how cakey it feels.

I love ELFs facial whip so much! I use it everyday and get tons of compliments on it all the time. When I tell people how inexpensive it was, they're in total shock! I've been told several times it looks similar to a MAC highlighter.

It's a bit sticky, but was the first highlighting product I've ever used. It's cheap and if you mix it with some primer it works pretty good and gets rid of the stickiness.

Considering the price the highlight the product gives is fantastic. Something i am not a fan of is how sticky it is. Consdering the price I was not expecting fantastic quality. I do use it often, I use it more in the inner crease of my eyes. Overall great product and brand

Pretty highlight, tends to be too shimmery for my personal preference. I think it was only like $2-3. I think it's worth it for the price but I wouldn't say have high hopes

I love this product as a highlight. it has the perfect sheen, and it smells like fruit loops. however, it is kinda messy due to the sticky texture, but the results are great.

I didn't care for this one. It is way to shimmering for me. It is to pigmented for me also. It is okay for all skin types. I will not buy again tho because of the shimmer.

I don't love this product. I love the brand but this just didn't give enough for me. I would much rather get a different drug store highlight. This color also isn't the most flattering on my skin.

This product was very nice to use ! It brightened my face just right and not too much. Knowing that this product was cheap, I did not expect it to work great. This product was smooth and creamy and can also be applicable to anywhere in your face. I would repurchase again !

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?
