Why people love it
  • Gives you beautiful shine without the intense glitter
  • Saves you money - perfect for bargain makeup shoppers
  • Not very pigmented so gives you a natural look

Many users have to scrape the top layer off, which does work. There is a protective base on the top, so once that is scraped, the pigment is amazing.


If expensive beauty products aren't your thing, this is the perfect highlighter for you. And, you can find it at most drugstores.  

Color: We love that this highlighter has a wide variety of colors available (3 to be exact) so you can save money no matter what skin tone you have. The equally beautiful shades include moonlight pearls, blush gems, and pink diamonds. This highlighter looks completely natural with no shiny glitter, which is always a plus. However, it can be applied wet for a more pigmented, intense look. Keep in mind this isn't a blinding product. It's more of a sheer, natural highlighter. 

Application: The e.l.f Baked Highlighter has a traditional round 0.21 ounce compact case like most drugstore highlighters. This product doesn't transfer onto brushes well so use your fingers for a more pigmented look.

Price: Have you ever seen such an inexpensive makeup product? For the $4 price, you can't find better - it's definitely the cheapest highlighter out there.
