Review and Swatchfest: E.L.F. Shimmering Facial Whip

E.L.F. Shimmering Facial Whips ($1 eyelipsface.com and Target) are another product I have had before and even used in comparisons before. But, none of the whips I have had were very pigmented; both of them are definitely highlighters. So, I was wondering what the rest of the collection had to offer and at $1 (well, $.30 with the sale) I could afford to!

Golden Peach

I don't really see the peach but "golden" is spot on! It is a yellow-leaning pearly gold.


A pearly bubblegum pink, I was impressed with the pigmentation in this one. Definitely blush worthy!


A frosted light mocha


A silver-sheened brown-grey
A pearly white.

Lila Petal

A peachy-pink with opalescent shimmer
 The last two, spotlight and lilac petal, are the two I already owned. The other four are new and I am impressed with their performance! Spotlight and Persimmon have great pigmentation and I would wear them as a standalone blush. I could see them functioning similar to NARS's illuminator. The other two, Toasted and Camila, are similar to the two I already owned in that, once blended, they all look like a pearly highlighter. The color doesn't play a huge role. I'm sure there are subtle differences that can be seen across skin tones (Lilac Petal would work well on warm skin tones while Camila would be better for cooler, etc.) but, in general, I think you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between them when blended.

With any of these, you have to be careful not to over apply. Otherwise you have a hot pearly mess on your cheeks (or browbone, or nose bridge, etc.) making your pores look large and in charge.

Are they a must have? Definitely find and get Persimmon and Golden Peach. The rest are great highlighters, but I would just get one as they all pretty much look the same. But, at $1 a piece. You could have them all for a fraction of the cost of ONE illuminator.
