  • "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

Elf is a good brand! This highlighter is a beautiful pinky color and looks stunning on the skin! It’s easy to apply and blends smoothly! It lasted a long time for me. I wouldn’t recommend this for oily skin as it is a liquid and is pretty oily! I say give it a try!

E.L.F. does it again! This stuff is ridiculously cheap and also very good. It packs a good amount of shimmer so this stuff makes you glow and loo dewy. The scent is also quite pleasant, as it is a bit citrusy. I have to say I was impressed with this stuff. It applies well with you finger or a stippling brush to help diffuse the look of it. I really recommend this stuff. Plus, a little goes a long way so this will last a good long while. I would give this product five stars if there was a wider range of shades available. That would be my only complaint about this stuff.

Usually I loved e.l.f but I feel like the advertising is very misleading. The image they put is very different from how this product actually looks. different size, color, and this isn’t really even a highlighter it’s way to pigmented more than glittery! E.l.f. Needs to fix this ASAP

I think this is an underrated product. It’s a nice, soft formula that gives a nice little blush to the cheeks. I’ve had this tube for years and years - it’s been around way longer than highlights and strobes were in style. It’s a great product and worth a couple bucks.

I love highlight!! However this one starts out beautiful, but as the day continues it becomes less noticable. I did enjoy using it on my eyes for no make-up make-up days and it gave a little pop/sparkle to the eyes.  It blended well and was not greasy!

I like to use this over or under my powder highlight. It IS a little difficult to blend with foundation but a little goes a long way! Very pretty shimmery finish on the skin. I don’t like liquid highlights too much but I would recommend this one

This is a decent liquid highlight,it goes on easily and has a nice effect. It's shimmery,but not in a bad way. The only reason I didn't like it is that the only color that I could ever find is a pink tone,that didn't look quite right with my undertone. I ended up giving this to a friend with a slightly deeper skin tone compared to my pale/albino tone,and it looked fabulous on her skin. It never disturbed my foundation,and lasted quite a while on me,even during the summer days. I would recommend it.

I PAID A 1$ FOR THIS AT THE DOLLAR TREE !!! If your local dollar tree has these defenitly buy one . The shine isn't the brightest but for a dollar ? It's so worth it. I also use this to fix my other broken highlighters , it works amazing .

Very blinding, I really loved the look of this. It does fade throughout the day though, and with the pink color, it makes your cheeks/nose look very pink. If youre looking for a cheap, blinding highlight though, then this is it.

I got this on a sale from where I use to work so I thought why not. It was so affordable for so much product. I got it and I tried it on but it’s too pink for my skin tone. Although I don’t like the shade, it could be use to play around for festival/ rave makeup looks. I love the texture it’s smooth and soft and dramatizes if you put highlighter over it.

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?
