Product Love...ELF'S Shimmering Facial Whip! :D


Ello ello sweethearts! Tis almost the weekend! Can I get “woohoo!" with a "hallelujah praise the lord!" thrown in please :D I actually have the day off tomorrow but will still be popping in to work for a while to study…how’s that as dedication for ya? A tad depressing too perhaps but at least I know at work I will ACTUALLY work instead of being a complete & utter lazy bum at home, easily side tracked by the lure of online sales… Plus I need to get some bits & bobs together as I’ll be heading to the country with the bestie for a spa break on Sunday, cannot wait! A couple o’ day’s doing absolutely sod all AND getting pampered whilst doing so? Yes please! :D

Today I have a favourite product of mine to share with you, one I just adore & am so glad to have discovered, as not only is it a great quality product in my opinion, but has saved me lots of money’s (that can be spent elsewhere) as it’s so cheap! And that’s always a good thing non? I’m talking about ELF’s Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Pearl, which is a lovely liquid highlighter that adds the most gorgeous glow to your skin…




I LOVE highlighters, I use them all the time in my makeup as they really are a fab way of giving your whole complexion a healthier glow to it & can be applied wherever you think you need glowing! Most notably of course along the cheek bones, bridge of nose, lips & eyes. That’s where this bad boy comes in, once I’ve done the foundation step, I go in with the Facial Whip & just dot it along the top of my cheekbones, bridge of the nose plus I also like to apply it under the brow bone going around the outer eye. 


At first I was surprised at the size of it, but blimey I’ve had this little tube for yonks & it’s still going strong, mostly probably due to its being so wonderfully pigmented, you only need to use a few dots, which then blend out nicely.
Its consistency is great, not too thin, but you do need to give the tube a bit of a shake every now & again before using as I found it does have a tendency to separate? No big issue at all really, especially when you consider the price which is a fabulous…£1.50! :D 


Before I found this gem, I was an avid fan of Benefits High Beam? I still am a huge fan of Benefit products but comparing the two prices of £18.50 for which the High Beam retails for & this here ELF’s £1.50 Facial Whip which does the exact same thing….well…I know which one I’d go for. Mumma didn’t raise no fool ;) Not to mention the nifty packaging makes it perfect for popping into the makeup bag without taking too much space! Fab! ELF Cosmetics can be purchased ONLINE.

Have you tried ELF’s Facial Whip? Any favorites from this makeup brand you’d like to share with moi? Thanks for reading as always dolls!

Lotsa love to ya!

    One can not afford Benefit because I'm a peasant, glad we have ELF sticking around :D... (Says me with 2 MAC's Lightscapade, I used to be flush at one point until I got into lady boys isn't it. xo

  4. I love benefit products. They have a novelty to them... But it soon wears off, and you'll always find a cheaper product that can do the exact same thing, if not better.

    I'm yet to try the facial whip by elf, but have been using the pink lemonade all over cover stick as a cheek high lighter and it works really well, and lasts most of the day :D x
