  • "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

Although it applies nicely and gives a nice shimmer, it tends to get clumpy throughout the day on my oily skin and start to wear out. I would not recommend to others simply because I do not like the clumps

I got the shade Spotlight because I wanted to see how a pure white highlighter would look on me without spending a ton of money. This one is awesome and looks great on my pale skin. It lasts just as long as my high-end highlighters, you only need a tiny dot for both sides of your face, and it blends out easily with a brush. The only possible downside is that it's pretty dramatic and slightly glittery, not to the point that it looks tacky in my opinion but if you prefer a natural highlight, you will probably not like this.

At first I didn't like this product. It was my first time using a shimmery product. I thought it was too sparkly and metallic and unnatural in my face. I stopped using it for a while but recently I got it out again and started to use it. I love it. I use in as a highlight in my cheekbones and in the inner corners of my eyes. It actually doesn't have a super sparkly look. It has the right amount of shimmer and it look metallic at first but as you blend, which it is easy to blend, it just looks so good. It looks natural. And it's so affordable and they're are so many shades for your skin color. I wear it almost every day now and I'm loving it. I would recommend this product for everyone.

I enjoyed using this product. It was meant to be used as a cheek tint however I found that it works best as a highlighter because it was quite translucent. It was long lasting.

I have the facial whip in spotlight, which is a very light almost white color- perfect for pale girls.

Overall it's a little bit more glittery than shimmery. Which I don't love in a highlight but when I put a powder on top of it, the highlight looks amazing. I have been using it so much since I got it about 1 or 2 ago. It had a strong smell, almost fruit punch like.

I want to mix it into a foundation just to see how it looks. I'm thinking it would be the perfect thing to mix into a very matte foundation when I am more on the dry side.

I love all elf cosmetics products. They are so affordable and so good. This shimmering facial whip is amazing. I like to use this under foundation to give it a more glow loo.

I love this! It comes in a very small package, but you only need the smallest amount! Seriously, be very careful. It seems sticky at first, but dries down seamlessly. It can be hard to tell the color will really look like on your skin just by looking at the tube. I wish I had known that because mine turned out to be a lot more purple than I anticipated. (I have the shade Pink Lemonade). Sometime soon I really want to get another color though because it is gorgeous!

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?
