Today the weather is having quite a tantrum and it makes me feel like I've been magically zapped to England. I guess I should start practicing my British accent just in case. ;) For now though, I want to talk about the lovely product up top. I tried to photograph it in different ways to be all fancy-shmancy. I figured why not? Also, if you click on the images, you can view them in a larger size. Welp, I guess before I start rambling on and on about something else I'll just carry on with the review!
First of all, I would just like to mention that this Elf Shimmering Facial Whip was only $1! There is definitely not a lot of make-up I manage to find with this kind of quality for this kind of price. Now, I know that this product came out ages ago but I've only came around to try it now. I've actually had it for a few months now so I got some good use out of it. I can't say I use it religiously because I don't, I think it's one of those products which you only put on occasionally or for certain looks. Nonetheless, I don't feel I have to use something everyday to categorize it as a "good product". At the moment there are 8 different shades of this facial whip so it can really compliment different skin tones. Since I use this product for highlighting, I decided to go for the most dramatic and the lightest shade which is "Spotlight". There is only a tiny hint of color but mostly it's dense sparkles all the way. This shade comes out literally pearly white but when I start to blend it out the substance dissolves and becomes shimmery and sparkly. There aren't any chunky glittery glitz in here so if you were thinking (hoping/worrying) that this is going to Ke$ha you up, this will hardly do that. Having said that, I wouldn't recommend going crazy with this product because you can over apply it (speaking from experience shh;). I would say you will only need a pea size to highlight you cheeks and maybe even bring it up just under the brow. I think it all depends on how dramatic you want it to look. Now onto consistency. This product is quite liquidly and somewhat sticky. When I first put the facial whip on, the product felt kind of weird on my skin but after a few seconds it dried up and it was completely fine. Also, it smells like lemon candy and though it's a pleasant smell (if you like lemons), I just wish it was not as strong.
So is this product worth the money? I think so.
Hope you found this somewhat helpful!
