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

This a extremely pigmented and versatile product. It has a lovely smell and it blends in well. It lasts ages and isn’t very expensive. There is a range of shades and I have used multiple. Would recommend all!

not woc friendly, very hard to blend out and the shine is not as bright and natural as i like it to be, i guess you get what you paid for and that's a couple cents,

This is really shiny. Small tube but it will really last for ages. Only downside is it's very pink!! So needs to be blended loads but when it is it looks really amazing

I really didn't expect much from this product because I bought it for $3 and had never heard much about it. But I was pleasantly surprised by it! It was so pigmented and reflective, probably the best highlighter I had ever used out of all my creams and powders. It smells lovely, like Fruitloops cereal if anyone has ever tried that.

On the other hand, after using it for a few weeks it has definitely started to separate in the little tube. You can't tell but when you squeeze it onto your hand or finger, you probably will have to squeeze til all the oil comes out and the actual product begins to be released. It can be quite off-putting since it feels wrong to apply such an oily product to your face but the product itself is to die for so I look past the oil. It also is sometimes a bit difficult to blend but using your finger is the best way I have found. I do recommend this to everyone since it is so cheap and worth every penny.  e.l.f.

I think mine was defective because I got mine and it was frozen. When it thawed, it was really liquid and everytime I want to use it I need to shake it to mix the cream with the liquid. Because of this, much of the shimmer doesn't mix into the cream, and remains in this watery substance that sometimes leaks out of the bottle....THAT being said, the whip still adds a subtle, rosy glow to my cheeks and upper lip that I really like a lot. It gives my skin some color and makes me look way healthier. i bought it for 1.35$ from Shopmissa and would definitely purchase it again

I loved it at first, the effect and color it's beautiful (i have it in "Lilac Petal") but i don't know if it's because of the time i've had this product or just simply can't blend well and i didn't notice that at the beggining. I notice a shimmery stripe if applied with the fingers, not natural glow at all. Although, a method i learned from emylinoel is to blend it as much as you can on you hand with a stippling brush and just apply and blend with what's left on the brush.

This is an amazing product I love it so much. It is very undertones and that's what I love about it, it's also really easy to apply and it good for any skin type. Will definitely be repurchasing in the future

I literally cannot say enough good things about this product in spotlight and apricot!

I have used the benefit liquid highlighter and the maybelline and this blows them out of the water. I LOVE a natural glow, and this under foundation is SO GOOD. maybellines and benefits dont allow foundation to adhere to them and this one is just a little bit tacky so it holds on really well! Spotlight is amazing for pale girls, and i even like spotlight mixed with apricot for a summery glow! Apricot is great as an eyeshadow base as well!

For only a dollar its worth stocking up, i got like 10 during a 50% off sale and im wxcited to try the lavender!

I mass purchase these in bulk I love them so much! They're $1??!!! And they come in some really beautiful colours. I use them mostly to mix into foundations for a more dewy loo. I also use them as a traditional highlight, as a quick little glow with moisturizer, on my eyelids, on my brow bone, to highlight my collar bone, they do my taxes, braid my hair and take out the trash occasionally yadda yadda! Either way, whenever I order from ELF (which is often, I usually spend $15 just on these. Basic math, I buy like $15 of them. Highly recommend. And if you hate them, blame me and I'll send you $1! ;)

Because of the amazing price point of this product, I would highly recommend it. This liquid highlighter offers a bright glow to the skin, that can look natural for everyday wear. or built up to look glam. It can look streaky if not applied in tapping motions, so I advice tapping into the high points of the face with the fingers or a sponge. Overall this liquid highlighted offers a natural glow to the skin, and can come in many shades.

Does this actually highlight, or does it just add shimmer to the skin?

Is this too oily? I'm interested in using more daily facial products, is this safe and gentle enough to use daily?
