    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Baked Highlighter:

    I used it to highlight my cheekbones...and about 45minutes later all these little acne marks on the same place i applied this highlighter showed up. its hard to apply because its like rock solid so you really have to press your brush, also this literally is just eyeshadow.....like i might as well have bought eyeshadow. dont recommend...idk why theres so many positive comments about it here.

    Looks great on my fair to medium skin. Very natural look. Not very heavily pigmented, so if you want something more dramatic, I would not recommend. Have to do multiple swipes to really see anything. It's great for day to day use if you want a natural, not super shimmery highlight.

      Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Baked Highlighter:

      The shades I have are moonlight pearls and blush gems. You have to scrape the top layer off to get full pigmentation since it's a baked highlighter. I know there are two other shades called pink diamonds and apricot glow. I use this highlighter on the go or when I just want a natural highlighter to wear. Blush Gems is a dupe for MAC soft and gentle (btw).

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Baked Highlighter:

          I heard you had to scrap off the top layer so I did it with a paper towel - you just have to rub the first few layers off. I tried swatching it without scraping the top layer off, and yes there was little to no pigment and very hard. But after scraping off the top layer the product underneath was actually very soft and pigmented, so I'm quite happy with it. The color moonlight pearls is great for pale skin. It would be helpful if ELF would include the scraping instructions on the box though - seems like a lot of people gave a bad rating because they didn't know

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Baked Highlighter:

          This highlighter is very shimmery and radiant, but there is a weird layer of stiff product on top that must be scraped away in order to get to the softer, easier to work with highlight underneath. I tend to apply it with my finger in a stripe and then blend it lightly. The colors are all quite pretty and flattering! I believe I have the shade Moonlight Pearls. I tend to stick to less shimmery/metallic and more "glossy" highlighters so this was a nice and inexpensive way to try a look that I was unfamiliar with.

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Baked Highlighter:

          If you scrape off the top the color shows up so well. I was looking for a compact highlighter instead of a palette and this really does the job. I bought blush gems and for my skin tone it shows up. I have a medium-deep color skin tone of that helps!

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Baked Highlighter:

          Once you wipe off the top layer, this product is stunning. My only problem is that it doesn't last all day, at least not on me. Even with a setting spray by 5oclock I have to really look for it. Other than that, I love this highlighter.

            I absolutely love this highlighter! If you use a light hand, it can be very natural looking. It is also very easy to build up to a more "blinding" highlight. You DEFINITELY have to scrape off the top layer of the product in order to pick up any of the product. It can also be a bit powdery, but for the price, that doesn't bother me at all.

              Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Baked Highlighter:

              After hearing a bunch of Youtubers raving about this I decided to give this a try and have been using it for a few months now. I am very fair so I got Moonlight Pearls which is a great shade for me. I don't like an extreme highlight on my skin so I usually put this on with a light hand and it looks beautiful. But if I go out and want something more intense, I put this on with a damp beauty blender and it really intensifies it.
              BUT: you have to kinda scrape off that very first layer otherwise you will get no pigmentation from this! I already knew about that when I got it but for people who don't, that might be confusing. I recommend this for all skin types but if you have very prominent pores or texture, this can emphasize it.
              I'm overall so happy with this and the price is amazing.
