Review/Swatch: ELF Shimmer Facial Whip in Pink Lemonade

What do you guys think of a multi-purpose cream highlighter? I usually prefer pressed powder highlighters, but I recently tried the ELF Shimmer Facial Whip and I kind'a like it. You can apply it on your cheeks, lips and eyes, but I find that it's looks better on my cheek bones and the cupid's bow of my lips. It gives just enough sheen to add a nice dewy look on my face.

EyeLipsFace says, "Our Shimmering Facial Whip is a multipurpose, on-the-go whipped highlighter packed with Vitamin E to instantly brighten and soothe skin with no greasy after-feel. Ideal for using on your cheeks, lips, eyelids or anywhere you would like a radiant pop of shimmering color. " (source:

What I like:
  • Multi-purpose. can be used on the cheeks, eyes and lips. It doesn't really do anything for my eyes so I like to use it on my cheek bones and lips instead.
  • Pink Lemonade is a shimmery pale pink color that works with my medium/tan skin tone.
  • Non-sticky and non-greasy. 
  • Pigmented. A tiny bit goes a long way. You'll end up with a pink streak of shimmer if you put too much. 
  • Affordable.

What I don't like:
  • It looks very metallic on the lips and it doesn't look good on me. Instead I put a little bit on the cupid's bow or the center of my lips for a nice highlight. It's really pretty.

Overall, I like the ELF Shimmer Facial Whip. It just depends on you on how you want to use it. It like to use a just a tiny amount on my cheekbones and lips.

What are your thoughts?


  1. yeah I would only in the cheeks as well!

  2. Looks quite metallic but very pretty x

  3. Bought the All over color stick version of that which is also in the shade of pink lemonade and they are totally the same. At first I was too hesitant to even apply it since it was too shimmery and metallic but I discovered I just need to blend it well. I used that now as my everyday blusher since it was very cheap!
