  • "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 the first highlighting product i ever used. It's beautiful on the cheekbones and gives such a healthy glow.
Now I actually to mix a little into my foundation because it gives a really natural luminosity! Definitely recommend people try this trick!

Yikes. I had a breakout in the exact shape I put this "whip" on. It was grossly thick, and made me look a sweaty mess in the worst way. Definitely need to try a baked highlight as opposed to a weird gross liquid highlight. Have not been a huge fan of ELF products lately, it seems everything I try makes me break out!

This liquid highlighter from Elf leaves a beautiful pale pink glow. It can get very thin and watery though, especially if you haven't used it in a while. If you're not careful, you can squirt out way too much. I def have to shake it up a good bit before use. It is nice & very cheap but honestly not something I reach for often.

I had just about given up on highlighters when I found this product. I have dry skin and large pores and powder highlights seem to just put a spotlight on them. This was my first "liquid" highlight and it's just what I needed. Like a primer, it seems to glide over my pores and makes them less visible.
This product does create a more dramatic look, but careful application helps tone it down if you're going for subtle. I would definitely purchase again and I look forward to more color options in the future!

I LOVE this highlighter! A friend bought it for me because she said she thought it would look good on me and she was right! It’s super shimmery, which I love and a pretty pinkish color. I usually wear it when I’m going out and want a little extra pop to my makeup. If you like shimmer, I would totally recommend this!

Tbese are beautiful but very difficult to blend. I would recommend wearing them on thier own or maybe even with a light bb cream. They're not really long lasting and they're really thick. Also, there's its kinda glitterly. I wouldn't recommend these except if you're the type of person to go out with natural looks.

I recently found this product for a great deal, it was on a clearance shelf in Walmart. I really enjoy using this product, and I've been using it as a liquid highlighter. It creates a glowing dewy look. It is also light on the skin and very easily blended.

This highlight is very subtle but very beautiful. You only need a little bit. It blends the best with a few dabs on with the finger and then the rest with a wet beauty sponge. The glow lasts all day until you take it off. You can also use it as a cream base and apply a powder highlight on top for an extra glow.

The elf shimmering facial whip has a beautiful glow and is very pigmented however its not the easiest to blend using your fingers would give the best results a brush would leave a streaky finish although the product for the cost is worth and I would recommend

I really like this product, it is very intense and I like it a lot. The intensity of it is great and many people complain about a sticky residue but this has not been a problem for me. I would recommend getting this because it is really great and very cheap!

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?
