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 facial whip has a nice consistency. It's very shimmery with some sparkle in it . I use it to accentuate my favourite feature after I've put on my makeup and before I put on my powder highlight. I wouldn't use it on its own as I like mega glow and this is baby glow.

Great value for the price! The color is very true to what the website shows. It's not sticky like done other brands. It's a great option to experiment with when you are new to eye lid foundation

I wasn't pleased with the smell of this product. It had a harsh, chemically smell that was not great. Pigmentation is okay but it's not easy to apply. Very messy! I would not buy this again. Sorry, Elf! I don't like this one!

This is a liquid high lighter there isn't that much of a glow and it's really wet and cold on the skin but it is pigmented and it's best for dry skin because of how wet it is it would make oily skin more oily. I recommend it

I love these!! I got a bunch of them on sale for literally $1... the formula is a little thicker than the nars liquid highlighter but the quality is totally comparable. If I was to ever buy another liquid shimmer like this, I would totally go for the $1 elf one over the $40 nars one... can't tell a difference

The liquid highlighter comes in a pump bottle – love the square shape, the translucent cap and the look of the bottle. The cap and pump are the signature deep blue of Chambor packaging with the Chambor rose inscribed on the top of the cap. The pump has a great mechanism – you can control how much or how little you want to dispense out. The texture of the highlighter is like a lotion – its neither too thick nor too runny. It spreads and blends without any issues and gives a beautiful sheen to the skin. The shimmer particles are very refined and even, you needn’t worry about the highlighter looking too obvious on the skin. While you can use this alone on the high points of the face like the cheekbones, brow bone, down the bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow, I prefer mixing this in my liquid foundation to get a beautiful dewy glow to the face. It makes the skin glow beautifully, there is no obvious looking shimmer on the face and it just gives the look of healthy, plump, luscious looking skin!The formula isn’t greasy on the skin and has a light pleasant scent. It actually stays on very well, the glow doesn’t disappear from the skin in a few hours. The color is a light champagne meets gold shade that is warm enough to work well with the Indian skin yet not too warm. Overall, LOVE this product and would highly recommend this to those looking for a refined highlighter.

This little tube is one of the products you really need when it comes to a healthy looking glow. This little tube is, well, quite small, but it's such a good pigmented highlighter, you need just a really small amount of it to highlight all the spots you want to highlight. The product is easy to use and blends very well. It's a little bit greasy and sticky though, so you will have to blend it well. Add a small amount to your nose, chin, forehead and cheeckbones for an instant glow, or add a drop on your eyelids or lips to add some extra shimmer to the make up you're wearing. You can also add a drop to your BB or CC cream or your foundation for a healthy and fresh looking, glowing face, so it's a very versatile product. I truly recommend it to everyone who has a small budget or to those who don't like to spend much on make up.

For being so so cheap this is super pigmented, and really really nice on your cheeks etc! I find it a bit sticky to use sometimes and its not the easiest to blend if you leave it for like a minute but other than that its great value for money will be buying again x

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?
