Most Helpful Positive Review Moonlight Pearls and Blush Gems
It would seem that the baked highlighters by e.l.f. have been getting a lot of attention lately. After swatching them I can see why. They are phenomenal. They are truly baked and packed with shimmer. They come in 3 shades. Moonlight Pearl is a light cream shimmer. Blush Gems is a champagne shimmer. I don't have pink diamonds because it is a bit too pink for me. I swatched theses dry, but think they will look nice swatched wet also. I am sure you could apply these over a cream highlight for longer lasting power. If you love shimmer or shimmer highlighters you will love these. They reflect light beautifully.
Most Helpful Critical Review Beautiful color, hard to apply
I love the colors of these baked highlighters. They're beautiful and natural. That said, I have had the most difficult time applying them. My brushes do not pick up any of the product. I have to rub it directly to my face. If anyone has a tip for how to apply with a brush I'd love to hear it! Thanks!

You do need to use a spoolie and scratch off the surface of this product before you use it. But if you do, you will get enough product on your brush and have an absolutely beautiful naturally subtle highlight. This is always in my makeup drawer and I'm using it more and more as I'm moving away from blinding highlights. This one is just beautiful and you can't beat the price! I've also scratched some of this into loose powders and used the powder/highlight as an all over illuminating powder. So perfect!
Doesn't apply to brush
product review. from USA
I literally had to rub it directly on my cheek to get any product because it doesn't apply not a brush. Will not buy again.

I got this in the shade moonlight pearls and so far it's great for a subtler everyday highlight

it's cakey not really glowy like i was looking for
Dinofeet from Prythian
It's ok ig. I got the moonlight pearl one and it is very pretty. However, when I try to use it, there's not much pigmentation. I tried using my fingers and a brush but it just wouldn't show like I wanted it to. I even tried using a wetted brush but I still got subtle results. Overall it's ok, but I wouldn't buy it again.

This is my tried n true go to highlighter. Simply amazing.
A bit of bling
DolphinChick from Dayton, TN
Love this! I don't wear loads of makeup, but just needed a bit of pop. I got the moonlit pearl(think that it) and it is very shiny! So I just add a bit on some parts of my eye here and there.
Subtle, yet lovely
AllMyCats from USA
I only bought this to apply it to the inner corners of my eyes (like Korean-style makeup) and I really love this little compact of sparkles. It's subtle, but perks up my eyes, and since it's more of a neutral color (I got the "Moonlight Pearls" shade), I can wear it with just about any shade of eyeshadow. I imagine it would be a little more intense if I applied it wet.
It's just what I wanted to make my eyes look a little more perky and since I use so little of it at a time, this compact will last me a lifetime. Great little product for a great price, and I will absolutely recommend it for both its intended purpose and the purpose for which I bought it.

I love blinding highlighters, so at first I was very unimpressed with this highlighter. But I then realized how natural and glowy it looked in natural light. It has lots of golden and champagne flecks that look beautiful picked up in sunlight. Overall, this is one of my go to highlighters for a more natural, everyday look.
not worth it

Great pigment very shiny

It had a great pigment and was very shiny ! It looked great on me.
monicamartin41 from Edgerton Ks
It's okay if you don't want to see it. Defeats the purpose of highlighter. I even scraped off a little. Nope I couldn't even see it on my face. I have fair skin and I show color well but this didn't. Bummer.
An okay highlighter
Sarahbis94 from Findlay, OH
In a pinch this highlighter is okay, upon first purchasing you kind of have to scrape off the top layer to get any sort of payoff. It's not blinding but a nice glow
Better Eyeshadow than Face Highlighter
Sha331 from Usa
I bought this about a month ago & although it did nothing for my face it is nice as a added shimmer for your eyeshadow .

I have been using this highlight for over two years now and trust me it is a very nice highlight and serves for a long time.

This is beautiful for party wear, very shimmering and beautiful
Samantha from Huntsville, AL
I was very disappointed in this. I see other reviews about getting through the top layer or wetting it and I'm not into all that. What makes a product great is lack of effort. I'm only giving two stars instead of one because I will TRY the suggestions.
Cute compact highlighter
Laurenjade98 from Lincolnshire
I was bought this for Christmas last year and love it. It's such a handy little highlighter to have in your handbag for on the go, lovely colour and looks even better when applied with a wet brush!
I've used this...

I've used this highlighter for 2 years and I love itttt. It lasts for a long time too.
Love the glow.
Ankz17 from Virginia
Love the glow I get from this highlighter, I like just a lil glow and this is perfect, just enough glow!
Kaikai from undisclosed
This highlighter is not very strong dry but when I use water it's a lot better. I don't think buying a product you have to add water to in order to see it well is a great way to spend your money though. If you're looking for a professional, subtle look, then this is for you. I chose the "blush gems" shade
Perfect for pale skin!

I purchased back in June and it's wonderful!! I have very pale skin with pink undertones and it compliments my skin perfectly without being too harsh.
