I bought this last summer and it was definitely was one of my 'go to' everyday worn products of summer...I thought the colour would be too dark, but it went on my medium skin beautifully...the facial whip offers a nice glow without too much colour...it's best used as a highlighter on the cheekbones...However I also used it as an all over eyeshadow and in the corner of my eyes. It worked great because it really brightened my eyes...it's a little too glowy for what I'm comfortable with during winter, but come spring, I'm cracking it out again!

A little bit goes a long way! And, when used correctly its works well!
When I first bought this product, I squeezed it on my hand and used my fingers just to tap it onto my cheeks. It transferred too much product and it was just so sticky, I just didn't know how to use it!
After from some experimentation, if used with a damp beauty blender or makeup sponge after liquid foundation when the skin is still moist, it transfers just the right amount of product and it comes off so nice! Leaves your skin a soft glowy natural look! love it

I got this today and tried it straight away - an oily, clear liquid comes out before the product comes out, and then the product is all watery and hard for me to use. It is very messy because of this. I had heard of the liquid that comes out but not this bad! It happens EVERY time I use the product. The colour is pretty but way too shimmery for me. There is also a hole in mine where the water pours out and it's just messy messy messy!!! I had high hopes for this as I have seen good reviews on it, but it wasn't as good as I hoped. I wouldn't buy this again unless the formula was improved. (Also, the packaging could be a little better... especially considering there was a hole in mine.)

Oh gosh... I got this as a free gift and even so, I still HATE this product. It's super oily, super shiny and cannot be used for anything. It's too oily to be used on your face and too metallic to be used as a lip color. Don't do it, woman! Don't buy this crap.

I got this as a free gift with my last ELF order..It's definitely not the right shade to use as a highlight, so I tried it as an eyeshadow & it creased horribly after only ten minutes. The color itsself is really pretty though & it has just the right amount of shimmer. The tube is super tiny, even for $1. Half the time, clear oily liquid comes out & you have to keep squeezing 'til the color FINALLY comes out. I think ELF definitely needs to improve their formula on this one!

I got this as a free gift with my last E.L.F. haul. The first thing I noticed was that the packaging is TINY. Also, the smell is a bit weird.
Now, for reference, I'm around NW35-40. Toasted is only slightly darker than my skin color, but the shimmer makes it seem brighter. I used it as a highlighter on my cheeks and put some loose powder over it to tone down the shimmer and it looked so pretty! It made my cheekbones stand out and look modelesque in a very natural, wearable way. I have trouble finding ways to make my cheeks look like they have dimension becuase I wear glasses and the frames usually hide my cheeks.

This is my second SFW. I think I have a love/hate relationship with these things.
I wear foundation, so using this over that as a highlighter is out of the question. I did try using this as a quickie eyeshadow shade. It does a good job with that as long as you make sure to start with clean, oil-free eyelids and apply primer first. The color is a brownish plum, so I couldn't really use this on my face if I wanted to. I also noticed that this product gets watery, unlike the other SFW I have. I have to shake this one vigorously first in order to mix the stuff back together.
Over all, this is pretty decent, as long as the product stays mixed together.

This reminds me of Revlon Skinlights. It works well to dot this on browbone beside a dot of foundation and buff them in together for a luminous, non glittery glow. For warmer skintones only, on the darker side of the spectrum. It is a big stretch for my NC20/25 skin and the lightest touch only to keep it believable.
This may require some kneading of the tube with the lid on to keep it well mixed. Tiny, easily dropped tube. Awesome price ($1) and decent replacement for skin lights in the darker shades.
HOWEVER, ELF is slow to deliver and offers crap-tastic customer service. If this is a touchy issue for you, beware. The demand of their product diminishes any concern they may ever have had for their customers.

NOT good. i bought this product because it was reccomended by a blog i saw, and i thought what the heck, its only a dollar. they reccomended using it as an eyelid primer. WELL, it only makes my eyes look greasy and does not make the product stick or show brighter. i would not buythis again

I love the E.L.F shimmering facial whips, but this one is not so great. It is like a taupe gray brown, just not very flattering. It's also not as shimmery as the other colors (I use these as highlights) It's a good product overall I just don't love this shade.

I initially bought the shimmering facial whip in lilac petal which is perfect if you are fair skin. When I went back to the store I picked it up in toasted which looks dark in the tube but, if you are a medium skinned gal then this is the one for you. It is not at all as shimmery as lilac petal which is good and bad for me. This color suits my skin color better but, I just wish it was a little more shimmery but, not as much as lilac petal. Can't really complain it is only a dollar. I only use it on the apples of my cheeks then put my blush on top. I reach for this one everyday.

I was in the market for a highlighter and thought I'd give this a try with my last ELF order. It was so cheap, I wasn't expecting much, which is good, because that's what I got. For my olive skin, the gray/lilac undertones of this was a total no! Even when I blended it in, in natural light it looked strange. I am one of those people determined to make things work, one way or another, so I've transformed this into a blush base. When I wear powder blush, I rub a little of Toasted into the apple of my cheeks and put on the blush, like normal. It give my blushes a definite glow. Toasted has been rehabilitated!

This didnt work for me at all....way too dark...I thought it would be more of a highlighter, because I dont want really glittery cheeks. I did give it to a friend who is very dark and it sort of worked as a highlighter on her, though didn't really show up much. Definitely wouldnt buy again...

Toasted has a really werid undertone to it, its almost like a grey undertone. Very unflattering and a nasty color. Hate all of the shimmering facial whips.URGH

This makes a good blush, eyeshadow, and lip tint for me. The pigmentation looks very natural on my light olive skin and it leaves a subtle, pretty shimmer. The formula is very slick gel and richly pigmented. I like the way it blends and the lack of greasiness that is usually found in liquid/gel blushes. A little goes a long way. Packaging is cheap but efficient.

Not a big fan. I can use this as a goldish eyeshadow, but when I put it on my face it looks really creepy. Perhaps because I have olive skin, but this just looks brown and dirty on me, not flattering, no matter how little I use it looks over the top.

Absolutely love this product! Just placed another E.L.F. order and I am picking up a few other shades. I use it on my cheekbones below my eyes and it just gives you a healthy glow!

I love this stuff! At first I didnt think I was going to, but I've found adding it in with my foundation makes my skin look beautiful and glowing! Yay! Try it :)

ACtually all in one is a good idea but this highlighter is only good to highlight under eyebrows. It is a bit greasy, does not blend well and cant be easily removed from face
