I have this in Lilac Petal, and I really like it. It's not overly shimmery, which is nice. I'd say that the only downside is that it's a little difficult to blend, but its nothing too bad. That citrus-y smell people talk about isn't really all that bad. So, overall it's a great product considering its only $1!

For one $ it's ok , I can work with it. However my fist impression was quite bad( I got it twoonths ago). The product separeted and first water came out then shimmer. For those who are on budget it ok , but still better add some bucks and buy something better. I gave it three lips only because it looks ok on face, otherwise I would give one lippi.

When I first put some of this product on my wrist before applying it to my face, I thought 'what a nightmare.' It was watery and all the ingredients appeared to have separated but this really is a brilliant product. After shaking the tube a little, I applied it just above my cheekbones and under my eyes and it worked as a great highlighter. It cost me only £1.50 so for the price you can't go wrong and it's a good inexpensive alternative to YSL touche eclat. I would give it a 5 but it's very messy and this lets it down. Overall a really good highlighter and I would recommend this to anyone, one of my favourite products from e.l.f yet!

I actually liked this as my highlighter but I hated the packaging. Application was a hassle...at least for me. Id rather have something in a powder not a liquid. Would not repurchase

I got this for awhile now and i hate this, dunno if is the one i got it thats bad or what. i heard many good reviews so i went to pick that up when i saw it i was so excited! but then now that i use it i find that its so hard to blend and it always leaves me some blotchy patch. Disappointed might pick up a better one again for trying next time, but for now its a nono. SGD $3

For the price this is an awesome shimmer, this gives a great illuminating color to by cheek bones and temple, goes on great, not cakey, hand down for this price you can't beat it!! Love this color too, nice pearly color, its so pretty!!! As for the runniness as some are stating, shake the tube or smooch it around to mix it up first.

I have been using this for a few months probably. I originally bought it because I didn't hardly ever use highlighter, but I wanted one "just in case" for my makeup bag. I since have started using it pretty much daily to brighten my under eye area after I apply concealer (at the very top of my cheekbone). I get the very tiniest amount and very lightly pat it on, and it brightens without looking obvious or garish. Sometimes for an evening look I will use a bit more and pat it out along my cheekbones and just up to my temple. This one does the job. I do have to give the little tube a good shake before I squeeze some out or it'll be separated and watery. And like I said, the tiniest amount goes a really long way, so even though I am careful, sometimes I end up with some wasted. But, highlighters are something I don't wanna drop huge amounts of $$ on so this little $1.00 works for me.

This is a wonderful highligher. I use it on my cheekbones and eyes, and it gives the most beautiful glow without being too sparkly and overdone. It can be a bit watery, but all you really need to do is be sure to shake it up before you use it. I squeeze a small drop onto my hand, apply to my cheekbones with a concealer brush, and blend. For just a dollar, you cannot beat it. I can't really see myself living without it from now on. It is the perfect finishing touch to my makeup routine.

I bought this for a dollar at Target and this is one of those products that the quality is reflected in the price. Before I could even use the product would leak out and change consistency. Yes, the cap was on also. Due to the packaging and the hassle, I will not repurchase.

this product is only 1 dollar, so I cant complain TOO much, however, ANY money spent on a crappy product is money wasted. I have other things by elf that work well, but this facial whip is HORRIBLE!! When i squeezed it out the tube to get some on my hand, it came out like water. It seriously dripped like i was pouring waster from a water bottle. I really wanted to like this stuff because I was looking for a good highlighter, so i bought another thinking I might have gotten a bad one. THat one was just the same! I could never even get it on my face because it was literally like water and rolled right off.LIke i said, only a dollar i know, but this was just so awful!

I have been using Luna from MAC for a long time and I bought this for the same reason I always buy ELF products. Super cheap and typically good quality. The only gripe about this is the consistency gets separate-y and weird sometimes so i have to mix it up on the back of my hand before use. It's a strong WHITE highlight. I wouldn't recommend this for deeper skin tones but for my NC20 skin, it's perfect. I use it on the cheekbones, chin, above the lip, forehead, brow bone, and tear duct. I have dry skin, so I love the glow.

The coloring is too light for my tatse but for the price you can't beat it. It can be a little too liquid like. Sometimes when I squeeze I will just get liquid, so I always kind of massage the tube before I squeeze it out.

I purchased 2 of these thinking I would really like them and I do just not this color for some reason the white one's are so runny that they are hard to get on you face without getting it all over your face.It is a really good highlighter constancy aside so I use the other colors which I have never had a problem and those I can just apply right to my face instead of my hand and than my face.

I have two of these; one in lilac something or other and spotlight. Spotlight is my favorite, as it is white shimmer and more flattering than purplish gold from the lilac one. The formula isn't too thick or thin, it spreads smoothly and it not too glittery. The wear seems fine, surprisingly, it keeps on my cheekbones all day. It's glowy instead of fluorescent, and I like the dewy finish it gives. Ridiculously good deal for $1.

I wanted to like this product... it's very pretty on my skin but it has a couple of big draw backs. It's very tacky, which makes it difficult to blend. So if you don't work fast, it's going to dry and leave very obvious spots of glitter on your face. It also tends to separate into the glitter and a runny liquid.

I hoped for a light shimmery NO GLITTER highlight when I bought this product. The first problem I found was that the product was entirely too watery. I had to shake it quite a few times and even then, it still came out watery. Also, indoors it looks all right on, but once it hits the sunlight it's just splotches of glitter.
I won't be repurchasing.

I bought this facial whip in Golden Peach, because I heard the ELF facial whips are like a dupe for Benefit High Beam. It is way to shimmery and doesn't come close to Benefit High Beam. I wasn't expecting the colour to be the same but I was wanting to have the same natural looking glow. I don't like that it makes me feel like an 8yr old with the amount of glitter that comes out, won't be putting anywhere else on my face BUT I don't mind it as a lipgloss... That, I can work with. I like the consistency too. Unfortunately I'll keep using my high beam sparingly until I find a good dupe for it.. This is definitely not it.

This is the first highlighter I've ever used. I thought I'd try it since it was only a dollar and I like E.L.F.'s products. It's very smooth and blends easily and has tons of shimmer. But that's the problem. I thought it looked good on my cheeks, but then when I stepped out into the bright sunlight, it was like I'd smeared glitter all over my face. I don't know, maybe I just can't get used to it actually showing up that much, but it just looked strange. As long as I'm not outside, it looks okay. I haven't tried it as an eyeshadow, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

This highlighter and or glow product kicks all others out the front door! I apply this on the apple of my cheeks and under my eyes and instantly I get a glow. This is SOOOO amazing!!!
Every time I put this on, my skin looks refreshed and healthy. So healthy... I look glowy! Not oily, not dried out, not sparkled up , not any of that but glowly!!
I've been on a search for a glow product and I'm so glad I found this, it is my new HG glow product. Please E.L.F do not discontinue this!!!
I can easily see this product selling at 8$ and at only 1$ it's unbelievable. I mean I tried the Physcians Formula Highlighter in Translucant ( or whatever you call it) it was 14$ and I got nothing but SHIMMER. Something my Wet N Wild 2.99$ highlighter pulls off easily. Yeah some rip off I know...
I want to stock up on this product just in case they do discontinue it but however I've read the reviews on here about the ingriedients moving apart if you don't use it. So that prevents me from stocking up. It kinda does that now but it's no biggy. All I do is shake it and squish the bottle on eash sides then apply. Which makes the ingriedients moving apart theory, believable considering I wouldn't even be using them all at once.
I apply this over my foundation and blend with my fingers. It just comes out gorgeous as I have already mentioned lol Please if any of you are looking for a glow product try this 1 out!

I am reviewing this as an eyeshadow base. This is the perfect base for gold, silver, and shimmery colors! Even the hideous Sparkling Gold by Revlon looks amazing after using this as a base. I took a star off because this is a horrible face highlighter. Its way too pasty and oily, also its so hard to blend it in to look natural. The biggest issue when blending this in is that it blends so blotchy, so in some areas it'll be very heavy and in others you'll hardly have any product at all. Since it has a silver tone it looks ghastly unless you manage to blend it in. On the plus it works amazing as an eye highlighter/base. Its only a dollar so I reccomend, but not as a cheek/face highlighter. It reminds me of Illamasqua's Illuminator, but pastier hehe. I am happy though because this is the perfect gold eyeshadow base, try it and you'll be surprised how true to pan your golds will be.
