  • "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 purchased this product when I first got interested in makeup. I used it a lot years ago, it gives you a nice subtle glow. I have moved on to better products that are a little more noticeable, which I prefer, but I think this would be great for beginners.

For a dollar this packs a punch for sure. Sometimes I’ll just pop this on when I don’t want to wear a lot of makeup, especially powder. It brings some life to my face and the packaging is small so I can fit it in my purse and reapply when it wears off.

I have this in two shades and I believe it only comes in two shades but don't quote me on that goes on pretty good the smell is Pleasant and the payoff is pretty good and I'm always mentioning that the price with elf is always affordable and worth it for certain products and this would be one

This is a fantastic dupe for the Mac's Sheer illuminating luster drops.  I love how this is so pigmented and it is the perfect highligher when paired with a powder highlight.  The Golden peach color is perfect for those that are in Mac's NC40- NC45 with its warm undertones it is much more satsifying.  I love this and use it all the time and repurhase it whenever I run out.  I especially love how vivid it turns out in photos! It is not patchy, cakey, or too heavy if you use one drop.  I also prefer to mix it with my bb cream to give me an overall dewy glow which is fantastic!

I'm on the fence with this product. It's from elf, so it's great value in terms of amount of product for money, and it's cruelty free which is great. BUT. I didn't love how thick the product was. It made it a bit tricky to blend out, and the shimmer was a little faint for my tastes, personally. It also leaves a bit of a tacky feel on the skin, so if you're going for a dewy look this may be perfect! If not, I'd suggest a setting powder after applying.

Not something that I would buy again, but I'm not heartbroken over the few dollars I lost to try it.

At my first impression I liked the cute shape, easy packaging, and pretty colour, natural glow, but after usage for a while I noticed that it doesn't last more than 30 minutes!! And you have to reapply, another notification that it works well in winter but during hot days the glitter is separated away from the liquid!! And you have to shake it before using, so not good for me

I have so many mixed feelings. I bought every shade od these because they were only $1, and I really loved them at first. You can mix them to create custom colours, they dry down quickly and stay put (you have to work fast) and they're super bright and metallic looking on the skin...but before I could use them up the product seperated in the tube, creating a gross, unholy mess that I refused to put on my face. For $1 I got good use out of them, and if you're on a limited budget I'd so go for it, but I'm not sure that I'll repurchase.

Me gusta!

Este producto es realmente bueno. Con una pequeña cantidad es suficiente para darle iluminación a tu rostro.

El precio es bastante bueno. Ya que no es tan caro es más accesible y lo mismo la marca. La encuentras dónde sea.

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?
