ELF Cosmetics Highlighting Holographic Duo Review:

Elf Cosmetics has released some cool new holographic items recently glamour babes and their Highlighting Holographic Duo ($8.00 for 0.32oz) is one of them!

Let’s check it out!


Get a radiant, iridescent glow with this Prismatic Highlighting duo. Perfect for wearing alone or layering, this buildable, luminescent formula reflects light to make your highlight pop.

Cruelty Free and Vegan! Yay!

Elf’s Holographic Highlighter Duo comes in three shades-Mermaid Tail, Blue Lagoon, and Sirens Call.

I obviously went the mermaid route and purchased Mermaid Tail. Remember, Always be yourself unless you can be a mermaid. Then always be a mermaid. Or a unicorn. I don’t discriminate against the two. Lol.

Mermaid tail is a pale cotton candy pink and a sheer lavender duo.

I wouldn’t exactly call this a holographic highlighter, there is no shade shifting. It’s more pearlescent. But, if you mix the two together it’ll give off a sheer duo chromatic glow.

The formulation is lightweight, smooth, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blends well, somewhat buildable, has soft pigmentation, flatters all skin tones, and gives skin an iridescent finish.

I actually love that the glow isn’t as intense as some of the highlighters I own. These pastel hues are great for everyday wear, I like the subtlety they create. You get the perfect amount of radiance along with a lovely touch of color. Now where did I put my clam shell bra? Being a human is getting too complicated for me. I’m ready to explore the deep blue underworld. Oh, can’t forget the fins. Lol.

Wear time is about 5 hours. Not as long as Elf’s other highlighters, but the longevity is there, and skin still glows a bit after fading.

Elf’s Highlighting Holographic Duo is available at ELF Stores and elfcosmetics.com

Think you’ll swim on over to get one?

Do tell!

Sending you mermaid kisses and starfish wishes!

Stay beautiful! Xo.
