Wasn't sure about it at first
I normally stick to highlighting powders and powder products in general because I normal to dry skin and I am just more comfortable with powder products. But I gave this a go and I really like it! It is easy to apply, has great color and is build able, although you really don't need very much at all. I find it does go on better over the foundation before you powder, but still works great over powder. I find it is easy to apply with your fingers (before powdering) and a small fluffy brush (after powdering) it keeps its shine and shimmer for quite awhile and doesn't wear off easily. As with all e.l.f. products I have used thus far, excellent quality for the low price.
Use this everyday!
I think this product is amazing for the amount of money it costs, I picked mine up at Target. Before applying I shake the bottle and even though it is liquidy I just spot a few dabs on my cheekbones and blend it out with my fingers. I think it gives an awesome shimmery finish and I have repurchased this time and time again.
I love this highlight! I normally don't highlight my cheeks using anything but bronzer, however I changed when I bought thi! I absolutely love the fact that you don't have to use a whole lot of product in order to get a nice highlight. The price tag of $1 isn't bad either! I even tried mixing this with my tinted mositurizer and foundation...and it toatlly worked! I had such a beautiful glow! I used this especially for Homecoming this past September too; it looked so freakin' pretty in pictures! The pigmentation is pretty good, though it does/can turn out sheer. I don't wear this as a highlight every day because it doesn't look that natural on my skin tone, however when I want more of a shimmery highlight, I use this! I honestly and truly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice, pearly, shimmery highlight! Go get it!!!
- Shimmery color
- Not natural for darker skin tones like mine
You only need a little!
I only take one drop on my finger, use my other finger to even the drop and sweep both fingers to highlight my cheekbones. Then I blend as much as I can and it's perfect. I wish I could find more shades instead of Lilac Petal and Spotlight because I think a different shade would be even better.
It's a nice highlighter that I use and it only cost $1 but there are a few problems. First it doesn't blend it that easily so I have to apply it on my hand, blend, then apply to my face which is okay but a huge problem that I really have is that sometimes it can really turn into liquid drops and that's so frustrating. I left mines on my makeup vanity the day i bought it and a day later it was liquid then turned into the regular product. Now I don't use this anymore on the my face as a highlighter I mix it in with my body moisturizer to give me a bright glow on my skin which I like better.
I have two which I use them in my videos sometimes http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOffi... and I really like them. Deff worth the dollar! I honestly think they really do add a little shimmer to your cheek bone. I also like to apply it above my brow - but only a little bit so it doesnt look too oily. Just the right touch for a nice natural look :)
Pretty color, but hard to work with
When I got this product I was actually kind of looking forward to it because the color was so different from any other highlight I own. Sadly, the product was just unusable. I tried with my fingers, with a brush, and with a sponge and I never could get this product to blend properly. Not something I would recommend
Decent amount of shimmer
I purchased this since I don't have any kind of highlighter in my make up collection. A little goes a long way with this stuff, so be careful. The consistency is perfect; it's not too thick and not too runny. The only downside is the smell of it. I'm not too sure if you all notice it when you put it on, but it does not have an attractive scent at all. But for the shimmer payoff it gives, I'm alright with dealing with the "plastic" smell.
It's definitely better than the all over face stick, which I found oily and excessively shimmery. This went on creamy and then dried - unlike the all over face stick which got color/glitter all over me when I tried rubbing it in.
I love the fact that it was subtle enough, but people still noticed that there was a glow to my cheek. I used the lilac petal.
