The long-lasting baked shimmering color can be applied wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation.
e.l.f.’s 3 new Baked Highlighters are released with its Studio line and can be used both dry and wet. The following shades are reviewed, below: Moonlight Pearls, Pink Diamonds, Blush Gems.
These baked highlighters come in domed compacts made of plastic. The lids flip open and are clear. Like with most of e.l.f.’s packaging, these compacts are functional, but not the highest quality. The packaging isn’t the most sturdy or reliable.
Moonlight Pearls is a frosty cream. Pink Diamonds is a frosty pale pink. Blush Gems is a frosty tan-champagne.
These baked highlighters all have very frosty finishes, even when applied lightly with a fan brush. The good thing about this is that the highlighting effect is strong, and you don’t need a lot of product to get this result. The down side is that if you have uneven skin, this type of powder will emphasize the uneven finish. It also doesn’t pair well with oily skin.
These also double-duty as eye shadows. If used dry, they give you a translucent wash of frosty color. If you use them wet, they give you a more metallic-frosty finish with a more dense layer of color.
Ease of Use: 9/10
You should definitely use a light hand and opt for a fan brush or very fluffy brush when using this product on the face to avoid a gritty look on the skin. For the eyes, you can use this product wet or dry.
