  • "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

Received this with a highlighter set and I don't use it much unless I want my face to really pop, a bit on the sticky side but nothing I can't smudge out. Probably wouldn't buy again as I think it'll last me a while but there's not much bad to say about it, would recommend to others!

I personally have not had a great experience with cream highlight but I do like the ELF facial whip - great for the price and they go on really nice. Still not a huge fan of cream highlight but these are slowly making me think otherwise.

Say hello to my newest obsession, the ELF Shimmering Facial Whip highlighters are the most amazing thing I have ever used! To be honest obsession probably doesn’t even cover it. I currently have two from this line and I just ordered the other three because these are simply awesome and they only COST $1. Nobody can so no to that! If you don’t own these yet, you are seriously missing out!

I love this product.its super pigmented and a little goes a long way but you can build it up to the intensity you want. Lilac petal looks really nice and natural on the skin. The consistency is perfect and it smells really good but I know a lot of people don't like it.its great and it's cheap.

This was so pretty! It's great when you're wearing very little foundation and just want a bit of a glow! It is a little more difficult to work with on top of setting powder

So the main reason I have this product (pink lemonade) is because it smells like fruity pebbles to me. I'm from the UK so we don't have them here and this just reminded me of them. But this product was super cheap I quite often use it as an eyeshadow and it works quite well.

Soo subtle and nice! Exactly how I want my highlighter to be on a daily basis. It is quite shimmery but i do not mind it because it is subtle and easy to apply in theearly mornings before university! I would reccomend trying it because it is soooo affordable and great!

Not a fan of the whip. It was super sticky and impossible to blend. Maybe I got a bad one, but it was horrible. Luckily it was a sample with my order so I didn't lose out on money, but it's cheap at least, so wouldn't have been much of a waste if I had.

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?
