E.L.F. Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearl- Is It Really Worth It?
Swatch of E.L.F.’s Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearl
If you’ve been on Pinterest, like ever, you’ve probably seen tons and TONS of dupes for high-end/luxury makeup. I’m always seeing that E.L.F’s baked highligher in Moonlight Pearl is a dupe for one of MAC’S highlighter.
While this post isn’t going to talk about whether it truly is a dupe for MAC or not, I am going to talk about my personal opinion of this product!
E.L.F.’s Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearl applied to my face
Is it really worth the hype?
The first picture on this blog post is a swatch of the highlighter. When I first ordered it and received it in the mail, I was sad, because I felt like there was NO pigment.
However, I’ve had this problem with highlighters before. For some strange reason, cosmetic companies put some type of thin layer on a product in order to prevent the product from getting damaged, I guess. I had to scratch off this thin layer with a bobby pin on my E.L.F. highlighter, but also on my The Balm Manizier.
Once I scratched off the top layer, the pigment came out! As you can see in the pictures, there is such an incredible glow! I paid $3 for this on Ulta.com and I would most definitely recommend it to other people who are looking for an inexpensive way to get a glow!
- Quality pigment
- No fallout
- A lot of product for the cost
- Great to use for glam or everyday looks
- Some people may think that the packaging is ‘cheap’
- Had that weird top coat that protected the product that I had to scratch off
As you can see, I couldn’t really find much to complain about. I’ve had this product for a while and I really wanted to make sure that I found the best and worst parts of this product to tell you all about!
For the price, there really isn’t much to complain about. I would definitely go and tell you to go pick this up if you have an extra $3!
What do you think about this highlighter? Do you think you’re going to purchase it?
