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!

I've been using this for 4 years! This is the best highlighter! Moonlight pearls is perfect for my skin tone ( I have light skin tone).
I absolutely recommend it! My friends and cousins love it too!

This highlight is AMAZING! It is my current obsession. I have been looking for a new highlight, and saw a couple beauty gurus I follow on Instagram recommend this. It is literally $4 dollars is extremely pigmented and glowy! It is not chalky or sparkly, it leaves the most beautiful glow! You can apply it however you want, very easy to apply a little for a sheer glow from within look, or you can wet a brush or beauty sponge if you want to glow to the Gods. This is a drug store must have!!! 5/5!!!
beautiful, but only if you repress it
Elli from WA
if you scratch off the first layer or repress it, its stunning. I absolutely adore how this looks and for the price piont, i definitely think its worth it.

This highlighter gives a very "natural" glow look, it is not overpowering or too bright or glittery. I'd say it is better than a lot of high end brand highlighters. This is just a habit of mine but scraping off the first layer of the product helps achieve a more pigmented look.

I have been using this product for a long time (years) and it's something I purchase over and over again. It goes on so well and stays put unlike a lot of highlighters; I think that's because of the baked texture. I do think there are similar and affordable highlighters in the drugstore market but this is one of the most affordable. I have really fair skin and highlighters don't all work for me but this one does!

this gives off a nice but settle shine
MCM from Toms River, NJ
not what I expected...need to use a very sense and firm brush to notice product on face
I love this...
GinaBinaFoFina from Canada
I love this highlighter so much that I've finished one and repurchased! It adds such a beautiful sheen to the skin! Because it's baked and tightly packed, a flimsy brush won't work with this product. I've had great results with a dense brush and once you've used it for a bit, it just gets even better. And for the price? You can't beat it!
Kim from Oshkosh, Wi
It does get kinda hard to use brushes with this product due to it being a baked highlighter so I find using your finger the best method
Love love love

I was nervous to try this product on my skin tone because I was not sure how orange it would look but I am so excited when it looked great!
Great pigmentation with no fallout
Bump1212 from West virginia
I have medium skin tone and have the moonlight pearls one. I have normal skin but oily where I put highlighter. I use a lot of liquid or cream highlighters, but also put this one over top to set them. I can also use this alone. So much glow and pigment and payoff with little to none at all fall out. Exceptional for the price. I want the other colors. The packaging stays nice and clean since there is no powder flying around as you do not need to use a heavy hand. Very luminous and easy to apply, I have even used my finger when in a pinch! No need to reapply throughout the day. Should be fine on sensitive skin.

I have this highlighter in Moonlight Pearls, and I think it looks great on my light/medium asian tone. The packaging looks really neat and the product works well so I naturally reach for this product almost every day.
Absolutely love it !
Mon Don from Liverpool
I have seen a few comments stating where this is not very pigmented and you can't pick up the shimmer on the brush. I am not sure if there is a bad batch of this product but from I received I can't say a bad word. Highlighter is amazing, pigments are spot on. not too much not too little, I apply it on my cheeks and it blends into my face beautifully, love the colour and love how it looks on !

Very Much Ashy
Patrice24 from Atlanta
It was pretty in person but it's very ashy a waste of my money

Sometimes I forget about this highlighter and get caught up in the new ones I buy, but everytime I come back to it, it's just....wow. Super reliable and bright highlighter that always ties together a look. Do recommend!!!
Macca from undisclosed
I've used this highlighter for a while now and I really Like it. One of my favorites. Very pigmented.
cakey, but it works
kayla from chicago
it's very cakey, if you want that natural glowy look, it's probably best for you to invest in a becca highlighter or something else like that. this one is just not it. it works for small things like when you're on the go, or when you just need a little touch up on your nose etc, but it's just very cakey. it's not bad, but there's much better out there !
Very good for this price
Sofiko from Wilmington
The product is really good, but you need to put several time, otherwise i like it
Lovely subtle highlighter
delly10 from London
Gives a beautiful shimmery glow but is more natural than a liquid alternative. Perfect for day to day
Emu_12406 from Muskegon, MI
I got this for my friend who is a beginner and it would have been her first highlighter, but when I was showing her how to use it, it was very dry and not pigmented at all. I tried to swatch it with a highlighter brush, fan brush, and my finger and none of them picked up any product.
One of my favorites
Kendra H from Ontario, CA
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.
Lexi311 from UK
This is a lovely, subtle glow. Not overly metallic, quite natural. Really pleased with this :)

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