ELF Beautifully Bare Highlighting Dewy Drops Review:

Happy Hump Day glamour babes! Before I jet set off to the Dominican Republic tomorrow, I wanted to get in one more review for ya’ll, and share my thoughts on ELF’s New Beautifully Bare Highlighting Dewy Drops ($4 for .5oz). I’m loving this product so much right now that it’s coming with me on the trip. 

Details:

The Beautifully Bare Highlighting Dewy Drops with illuminating pigments, bring light to the face for a glowing, dewy looking complexion. These pearlescent drops can be used for strobing and highlighting to create a glowing look. Enriched with antioxidant Vitamin E. Ideal for all skin tones and types. Cruelty free and vegan!

This is a liquid highlighter and comes in only one shade, Illuminating, which is pinky champagne gold. Hopefully ELF will make a wider shade range. I’d love to see more colors, and at $4 a piece, I’d have no problem buying every single one, lol. 

You can use this highlighter a number of ways- alone on your no makeup days, mixed with foundation/BB Cream, or apply a few drops to your daytime face cream. The finish produces a beautiful soft fresh faced, dewy glow. 

The formula is lovely. It’s lightweight, pigmented, hydrating, smooth, has a subtle glossy finish, comfortable to wear, easy to apply and layers pretty well. I did not find the Dewy Drops to be oily as some reviewers have mentioned, nor did It make my skin feel any oilier than it already is. True, it does feel slick, not a heavy slick when applying, but I thought that was the purpose of a liquid highlighter that’s intended to create a dewy (wet) effect. Maybe I’m over analyzing the product, it’s just a matter of opinion anyway. I found the fingertip method to be messy during makeup applications, so I opted for the next best thing, my beauty blender! It worked superbly. Use a light, dabbing motion and watch your illuminated complexion come to life. 

The longevity varied as I played beautifully with this highlighter.

Alone-5 hours

Using a setting powder or spray-6 to 7 hours

If you want to intensify the glow, you can add a highlighter powder on top. You’ll get about a 7 hour wear by using this technique too. 

So, what do you think?! Will ELF’s Beautifully Bare Highlighter Dewy Drops be your next Target purchase?! 

Go ahead and give it a glow. That’s my highlighter motto.

Stay beautiful! Xo.
