Honest reviews


I love this product!

I was worried that this highlighter would not have enough pigment or be too dark for my “beige” skin but it is perfect. I was wrong on both counts. The first time I wore it my husband asked if I was happy because my face was “glowing”. I have always used a highlighter without a pearl look because I worry that it will settle in lines. That hasn’t been a problem with this highlighter. It stays where I put it and doesn’t show any wrinkles. Although I don’t have much for wrinles in the places I wear highlighter. Unlike cream highlighter, I have to put this product on after my finishing powder or it seems to disappear. It does,however, last through a lot of blending, touching, kissing and I have seen last eight hours easily. I don’t work away from home so I haven’t had the chance to test it any longer than that. It also looks good without foundation, a little blush and mascara.It also looks great in photos. I have tried a lot of e.l.f. makeup and I am most impressed with this, the Moonlight Pearls Baked Highlighter.

Comparable to mac baked highlighters

Again elf hit the nail on the head with this product infact I like it better than my mac one I’d recommend this to everyone and the price again I’d amazing!

My ring finger works best with this!

No real highlighting when using a brush! However, when I use my ring finger and place directly where I want, it’s PERFECT, just perfect and the right amount of highlight, which should be subtle; catches the light beautifully. Just what I wanted.

its a pretty color, just like in the pic. its not very dramatic yet it looks fancy and really pretty

I tried using a brush with this, but it didn’t work at all. I had to use my finger and even then, once I applied it, I couldn’t blend. It was just a straight line of sparkle on part of my face. Did I mention it was messy? After about two weeks (without use), I lifted it and the top was stuck, so I pushed a bit harder and it popped open. The rounded top of the highlighter slid right off. The fantastic thing about this is that the stuff underneath was easier to use, but even messier. If you have similar issues, in order to save the money you spent, try transferring to a Tupperware container and mashing it into a powder. It works alright now. Also, it sucks the moisture out of my skin. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this.

Love this!! I use this highligter Everyday! It is comprable to the Mac Highlighter at a much more affordable price!

Berta Taloga, OK

Um…. Wheres the color??

After many rave reviews on youtube, I bought this. I could not get any "highlight" out of this until I "dug" my brush into it, and even then it didn’t last very long on. I most likely won’t repurchase.

Yolanda Wildomar, CA

Wonderful highlight!

I love this highlighter! It’s not to shimmery or glittery and it goes on perfectly in the skin for just the right amount if glow. I would def recommend to anyone to use as a highlighter! I would and have recommend(ed) elf products for everyone to try at least once.

Delia Rio Dell, CA


It was okay. I use it sometimes but like the other highlighter I have better than this one I purchased.

Charlotte Arcola, MS

Finally…NO GLITTER!!!!

bought this product to complement some elf blush i had also purchased. I love it for the fact that it highlights my face without using glitter…i don’t feel like a 10 year old little girl anymore 🙂

Bridgett Glennville, GA

Great highlighter

I wear this daily!! It goes on so nicely, and stays put all day. I’ve used it every day for a while, and it doesn’t even look like I’ve touched it. Looks like it will last a long time 🙂

Addie Fort Kent Mills, ME

nice highlighter

very nice subtle highlighter, i have used more expensive that didn’t work as well–I find that elf products are less expensive but not cheaply made

Sophia Mina, NV

Amazing!! I love it!!

This product is wonderful! I use it all the time and it is my favorite highlighter. I have recommended this product to friends and they love it too!

Winnie Bush, KY

kinda made me look like I had really oily skin

Really shiny, kinda made me look like I had really oily skin. I didn’t like it as much.

Gay Geigertown, PA

Just great!

I got this in all 3 available shades: pink diamonds, moonlight pearls and blush gems and i am so glad I did. The colors are simply amazing, the pigmentation is very very nice! It also does not have any glitter, just a gorgeous sheen – you’re bound to love these highlighters. Also, they are just $3 each on the ELF website. I’d recommend these to anyone, they look like high-end highlighters for a super-affordable price!

Cecilia North Rose, NY

Highly pigmented and great shine

Highly pigmented and very pearly, Also, a little more yellowy than I refer but I can see this looking great on darker skin tones. Easy to apply and a little goes a long ways.

Kathrine Millis, MA

Sheer coverage just a FYI

It’s pretty but not what I was expecting in a baked product. I wish it was more pigmented dry than when applied wet. But hey it’s a cheap buy so idc I like to have it in my kit

Adrienne Davis, CA

Wouldnt buy it again

You need a really stiff brush to get a decent amount. Love the color though nice and subtle however I wouldnt get it again.

Hilda Falkner, MS


I only use this for highlighting my face after I contour. It looks very pretty an subtle. There are no giant flakes of glitter or anything. My only complaint is that it is very hard to get enough product on my brush for it to show up properly. I am not experienced with "baked" powders so this may be normal. Overall, great product for the price and it should last a good while!

Aida Wylie, TX

Not bad of a highlighter

this is nice not a lot of glittery shimmer like some others out there. Can use this during the day without it looking like you have a fake glow.
