PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "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 the fact that this product has sparkles that aren't incredibly large. I've purchased other brands and the "shimmer" is just obvious large sparkles. This is very dense with shimmer so a little goes a LONG way. My only complaint is that it is pretty sticky and thick.

I picked up about 3 of these, they are so inexpensive. I have medium deep skin with a pinkish undertone & I love these! You can mix it with foundation for that super glory dewy look or wear it under a powder highlighter. Only con is that they have little brown spots in them, not sure from what but I don't think it means it's bad or anything

For the price it's a great product! I use it under my foundation or bb cream and it's great! It's not a blinding highlight but it does crest a glowy and dewy skin. I would recommend it for those starting off in make up or for those who don't want to dip into their more pricey highlighter

I really love this for layering. I use this and then a powder highlight over top and it's stunning! This product is vey pigmented and. a little goes a long way so it lasts you a while. I would really recommend this to people on a budget because it's super good for a super affordable budget

This is a great product! I use it to highlight my face and it looks amazing. Its shocking how pigmented it is and a little goes a long way. Be sure to blend it very well, I use my fingers to do so. My only complain is that after a while the product started to separate in the bottle, so i had to shake it very well, which was a little bit annoying, but it still worked perfectly.

Received this in a holiday box that I purchased and this little product gives a bang for its size! Very liquidy so it needs proper tools to be laid on correctly but its very pretty on the skin, very subtle and could be used to look natural or that super beaming highlight everyone loves nowadays.

have this in Persimmon, which I actually got as a free gift a while back and I'm just getting around to using now. Based on the other reviews, it seems most people use this Shimmering Facial Whip as a highlighter, but I definitely need to use this shade as a blush (that happens to have a built-in highlighter). It took a little work to get the hang of applying this stuff, but I actually really like it now. The color is a warm, peachy bright pink with a generous but not overpowering shimmer that shines through the ELF HD powder I use to set it.

The formula itself is a super-pigmented liquid so one tiny drop is enough to cover an entire cheek. It dries quickly so you need to blend with urgency, but once you get the hang of it, the color payoff is amazing. Plus, it lasts all day on my oily skin where most other blushes wear off after a few hours. This product may have converted me from powder to cream blush for good. The reason I wouldn't re-buy this is because I can't - this shade is discontinued - and I'm not in the market for any new highlighters right now.

This facial whip will transform you into a goddess! I absolutely love this whip! E.L.F knows exactly what they're doing with this stuff! It gives a more natural glow than a regular highlighting stick or powder does. Easily blended with a beauty blender or brush. This is a must have!

This gives a nice natural shimmer to the face . I have combination skin and it stayed put on my face all day . It was very easy to apply and blend and it was sheer but gave a nice glow. I would most definitely recommend this to others !

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?
