This product is amazing as a base under eyeshadow. I found that the eyeshadow colors really intensify when applied over this whip.
A tiny amount goes a long way and you do have to work quickly to blend it, but once blended into the skin it leaves a delicate shimmery tint perfect for highlighting anything.
I bought this in the color "Golden Peach" and intended to use it as a highlighter. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with my skin tone. When the light is not shining directly on it, it looks orangey. The consistency is sort of thin, not very creamy, but a little does go a long way. The packaging is nice because the thin nozzle allows you to just get that tiny amount you need, so that's a plus. It was only a buck, so I'm not too distraught. I've read from reviewers below that this can mix well with body lotion to add some shimmer in the summertime. I'll probably try that, as I hate throwing away product. I might give this product another chance with a different, lighter color, but I'm not going to order from ELF again just for one thing. Overall, it's decent, but this color is probably best suited for medium to dark skin tones.
I just love this product! The price is awesome and the quality too. I own Lilac Petal (my favourite) and Golden Peach and I use it as a highlighter.
I got this in spotlight, and I adore it. It's like a white color in the tube, but when you put it on and blend it in, it's a faint white (hardly noticeable) color with a faint shimmer .
It works nicely as a highlighter.
P.S. This version of spotlight is less white than the stick version.
There's been tons of back and forth concerning this product. I'm NC20 and on me this is just wrong! It always leaves a line...no matter how much I blend...just not a good look for me. w/the light film over my skin (which is nasty) then the line that cannot be buffed out...ewww...gross!
A lot of people have had so much problems with this product and complained about it as well. I was honestly afraid to try it because of this. But I still decided to try it, I'm really glad I did. I bought this in Golden Peach, which a beautiful golden honey color. It is much lighter than the All Over Color Stick in Golden Peach. The color in the tube is comparable to E.L.F's Tinted Moisturizer in Honey or Tone 2. Now the shimmer, I don't find it to be metallic at all like other have mentioned. Perhaps it is because I only use a tiny dot, the size of a dress makers pin or the size of the ball at the tip of the pin on each cheek. I find that this beautifully highlights my cheekbones, not with noticeable glitter but rather fine shimmer. This is such a wonderful product, it is so versatile. You can use it by mixing with your foundation to add a dewy glow. Add shimmer to your eyes, or even mix with a matte lipstick. I find that Toasted,and Golden Peach are perfect for mixing with your body lotion to add a beautiful glow to your skin. Perfect for those special occasions.
Amazing product for such a small price. I will definitely buy this again.
im not bothered with the occasional drop of water, put the lid back on and squeeze it a couple of times and it's as good as new :)
I'm so glad i found this, i don't get why people call it glittery, it's not at all... And if you dont like shimmer, why would you buy a shimmer product and complain about it being shimmerey, lol! Say THAT three times in a row fast ^^'
i have fallen in love with these tubes and i'll buy it over and over and over again :) Lilac petal is an amazing highlighter, or i mix it with my moisuriser to get an all over glow.. and citrus is a super blush color for my nc15 skin :)
I own a few of these and I like them. I see no difference from Benefit's High Beam. They are not glittery, they stick to my skin and stay put exactly where needed unlike loose shimmers. You need literally a dot or less in order to highlight yourself sufficiently in any way you see fit.
One downside - 'Toasted' separated and it took some kneading to mix the contents back together. But I won't bitch about it. I use them surprisingly often.
I bought one of each color, except for the bronzing one. I bought them with the intention of keeping them in my "purse makeup bag" which I use in the mornings when I am in a hurry, and for touchups throughout the day. They are convenient due to the tube, they travel well and you dont need a brush to apply. They last all day and impart a nice dewy/shimmery color.
I love this product. I have been searching for something to use as a highlighter on my cheeks. I tried moon beam by benefit and a few other random drug store products. I even resorted to trying eyeshadows. ha! Well, I ordered this product on a whim with a bunch of other E.L.F. products and this is definitely my favorite product from them. It leaves a gorgeous shimmer on my cheeks. It is a little watery, as someone mentioned, but I just shake it up and work out the excess water until I get to the product. My only issue is that you have to be careful about how much you use because there are sparkles that aren't apparent in indoor lighting but outside become very obvious. For the price I think this is an amazing deal. I'll definitely repurchase more when I run out.
