  • "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

In the generation where highlight has to be on point! You need to try this! Apply a small amount to the tops of your cheeks before a powder highlight and bam! Instant glow. Not to mention how affordable the elf shimmering facial whip is! Get your glow on!

This product by no means is a holy grail product but it is very much worth the few dollars. I however wouldn't recommend it for oily skin. It's not as long lasting as I would like it to be but it definitely does in a pinch. If you need something easy and affordable then this product would probably work just fine for you.

For the price, this is an incredible highlighter. I have the shade spotlight, and it is perfect for my porcelain skin. It is only $1 and it is a great cream highlighter. The lasting power of this highlighter is ridiculously good, and the pigmentation/sheen is spot on. It can be tricky to apply and I struggled with it when I first bought this. What I've found is the best way to apply this is to put a small amount (I'm talking TINY, a little goes a long way with this!) on the back of my hand and swirl it onto either a small stipple brush or a small concealer brush, and then blend it onto the skin. I usually put this on after powder, but you could put it on underneath for a more natural look.

My only complaint is that sometimes the water will separate a little bit out from this product, so when you first squeeze the tube, you get this weird glittery water instead of a cream.

The color is great for multiple skin tones/colors, has a shimmery finish and stays on fairly well throughout the day. It could be a little thicker formula usually I have to apply two coats but other than that for the price it is outstanding and I would recommend.

As someone with a slightly deeper skin tone, e.l.f.'s Shimmering Facial Whip in the color "Lilac Petal" is by far my favorite highlighter because of the way it compliments my skin.

The amount you get may not seem like much, but a little goes a LONG way.

I've purchased this highlighter since the company E.L.F came about. Its in expensive, works great, and has an amazing shine. It will def brighten up your face at a fraction of the price. Department store quality, with drug store price, #winning #elf #highlighter

This little tub is so fantastic! It is supremely affordable and you don't need a lot. It's great for layering or wearing alone. You can also mix it into moisturizer it foundation for a more glowy look. Definitely recommend it, a price you can't pass up.

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?
