  • "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 is one of my favourite products to use on a daily basis during the summer. Its very subtle but adds a little bit of pink shimmer. I definitely recommend it!

Elf shimmering facial whip acts as the perfect liquid highlight to begin your strobing journey. The pink shade is easy to blend and brings a perfect pop of colour and shine to the cheeks. The facial whip is available in many colours to suit all skin shades.

If you want a very dewy and glowy look in the summer, mix a tiny bit of this with your foundation. It gives a great glow without shimmer (despite the name) or glitter. I also use this as my highlight base, then go over it with a highlighting powder for a super strobe-like effect. Its so inexpensive you can't go wrong with it. I haven't tried to mix it with a cream eyeshadow yet but I bet it would work well too.

I have dry skin and i absolutely need this in my life. Its one of my go to liquid highlighters. I have fair to light skin with neutral undertones so this works perfectly for me when doing a cool tone look. I often top it with their moonlight pearls baked highlighter for a wah bam in your face highlighted look. I apply the product to the back of my hand and stipple it on top my cheeks tip of nose and cupids bow with and brush or beauty sponge.

This product just did not work for me. I gave it a fair chance in my makeup beginnings when I was trying mostly drugstore makeup but no matter how I used it I just couldn't tell the difference. I personally wouldn't recommend it but if it interests you it's only $1 or $2 so if it does not work for you it's not gonna hurt your wallet much.

I like it quite a lot although to buy it again I would think it because I think it works better on a dry to normal skin and as I am with mixed skin I need to take care of the amount a lot, however I think it leaves a nice sparkle on the skin and Which yields a lot and its price seems quite low for the quality of the product, I really recommend it for people with dry or normal skin

I was actually pretty unimpressed with this product I really love elves big Highlander a blessed gems I would definitely suggest that instead of this the only thing is with us it makes you look more oily instead of dwet so like a nice glow not to lock it would make you look slightly oily so that's why I was unimpressed

I bought the shimmering facial whip in Spotlight and Lilac Petal. The spotlight one is really nice, not watery at all, and very pigmented. The Lilac Petal was runny (consistency of water) and all the ingredients were seperated no matter how much I shook it. I knew I was taking a risk when I bought these since a lot of the reviews were saying that people got it and it was like water. I'm just glad the spotlight one isnt the defective one cause Lilac petal would be way to dark for me to wear as a highlight anyways.

Generally I do not use much elf brand but I bought this product recently and in fact it has worked me pretty well, there is no dry skin despite not being a greasy product and gives a very good finish, the result is quite good and You can use it in different parts of the face where you want to shine and highlight.

Does this show up as a pink color or just a sheer shimmer? I have very, very pale skin for reference, if it matters.
