I have been on the search for a good powder highlighter and when I saw Ashley aka SuperAshley127 and Kathleen aka KathleenLights on YouTube talk about the ELF baked highlighters I knew I had to try them out. I found out they were $3 and I was sold.
There was 3 shades to choose from, but I decided to go with Moonlight Pearls. I already have somewhat of a bronze highlighter which I will talk about later and I heard that Moonlight Pearls is a dupe to Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm so that's why I went with this one. I had been wanting The Balm's highlighter for a while and I thought why not this one?
It is a gorgeous champagne color and when I swatched this in store I was impressed at how pigmented it was.
(Left: Dry Right:Wet)
Could you die at this pigmentation though?! I love the beautiful glow it gives to my cheekbones. Depending on my mood I will apply it wet or dry. When I use it wet I spray my brush with the ELF Makeup Mist & Set and then apply it to my cheeks. I even use it on top of a cream highlighter to also make it pop even more.
This product last a long time on my cheeks, but it does last longer wet and on top of a cream highlighter on me. I apply my makeup at 5:45am and it only starts to fade a little bit at 1pm. To me that is a great amount of time before fading for a product that is just $3.
Overall I am so in love with this product! I don't see myself without this product in my collection. If you are into highlighters I do recommend you to try this out.
Have you guys tried this product out?? What are your thoughts on it?? What are some of your favorite ELF products??
P.S. If you guys don't watch the two girls I mentioned in the beginning you definitely should. I am obsessed with their videos and if you love tutorials, lip swatches, reviews, and more then these girls are definitely the ones to watch! I actually met Ashley at IMATS and she was very sweet.
