ELF Shimmering Facial Whip: The Best $1 Highlighter Out There!

I Bought It

ELF Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal Review and Swatch

Recently, I seem to be using a highlighter every day. I think it must be the weather, I’ve been cooped up inside for months on end, going outside means that the air usually is painful for my skin, I just need to be a little glowy! So, I’ve been applying a small amount of highlighter to my upper cheek bone.

One of the highlighters that I’ve been reaching for most frequently cost a whopping $1. Yes, that’s right! This is the Shimmering Facial Whip from ELF, a light, creamy highlighter. It is a bit champagne, a bit pink…. I dot 2-3 small dots on my upper cheek bone (this is the very last step in my makeup), and then blend with a fingertip.

This is just the right amount of light catching shimmer that doesn’t look like glitter or too obvious. It lasts all day, and I’m pretty sure this $1 tube is going to last for just about forever.

(Also, I included this in my Best Products of ELF post!)

    Wow, that is definitely a steal! I hope they have a good shade for my skin tone. If they do, I'd probably wear this product the whole summer long lol Thanks for the tip!

    A $1 – Wow. Its hard to find any great beauty find for that kind of price. I love to put on primer just if I have to run out for a few minutes. I need something quick to cover up those imperfections. Thanks for sharing
