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

      Of all the highlighters I've tried in my life, this is in the very last rankings. Not good, looks way better in the compact than on the skin. Very chalky, powdery, not dewey, not pigmented, I have moonlight pearls and i thought it would be pink but its not. just like chalky white powder. no thanks.

      Loved it!

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

      Honestly for the price it can't get any better than that. It's a really pretty highlight, I use blush gems and I get so many compliments. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because you have to work off the coating before you can get to any kind of pigment but other than that it's amazing.

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

      I bought this product since it was a cheap go-to highlighter. It's okay overall, but it is hard to even out on your face. I do think it is good for the price though and does do its job to lighten. I would recommend to someone who wants a quick, cheap highlighter.

      best subtle to build able highlight ever

      By jess

      from the u.s of a

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

      i love these so much and i use them when i don't wear too much makeup because it's literally the perfect subtle highlighter ever but you can build it up so nicely to where it's a little blinding. you do have to scrape off the top layer but if you use it with a natural haired brush like the morphe M510 you don't need to use it wet like with a synthetic brush.

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

        I wanted to try a cheap highlighter that had some pink/gold colors, and bought this one. You can get barely any onto a brush, I scraped off the top hard layer, which I saw in other comments. You definitely get a lot more on your brush, but not too effective. Looks kinda glittering up close, which was not what I was hoping for. But as an ametuer make up person, I'll use it for now until I can find something better

        You gotta work for it!

        By wfw12

        from Arizona

        • Blends Well
        • Good Pigmentation
        • Smooth

        Cons

          Best Uses

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

            I purchased this in the Moonlight Pearls shade maybe a year ago and returned it because I couldn't get any pigmentation. I got the same highlight, same shade as a free mystery gift directly from ELF and decided to scrape off the top layer as suggested on several YouTube videos. The highlight itself no longer looks perfectly smooth and pretty but the pigmentation and longevity of it is spectacular. It feels as soft as the Becca shimmering skin perfector but it lasts way longer on the skin! Gives an intense glow and goes on so smoothly. Worth the work!

                  Beautiful BUT

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

                  The ONLY reason i won't give this product 5 stars is because you have to scrape off the top layer to get it to work. It's annoying cause there's so many highlights you don't have to do that for for around the same price, but once you get the top layer off it's beautiful
