The ELF Cosmetic brand is known for good quality at reasonable prices. The ELF brand relatively recently introduced a jelly highlighter and a baked highlighter to the market. But which one is superior to the other?
First, let’s take a look at the Elf Baked Highlighter. It claims to create a “radiant” glow, giving your skin a sheer wash of shimmering coloring. It can be applied wet for a more vivid appearance or dry for a more subtle appearance. When I applied the ELF Baked Highlighter dry, I did not get any payoff. The baked powder was so pale I could not see any shimmer. Even after multiple layers, I still did not have any payoff. Now, when I applied the ELF Baked Highlighter wet, I received a light finish. It was not so wet where it was over the top, but had just enough payoff to appear natural. The ELF Baked Highlighter retails for $4.00, and may be purchased at Target, Amazon and www.elfcosmetics.com.
The ELF Jelly Highlighter was a different story. From the moment the highlighter jelly touched my skin, there was a luminous effect on my skin. What’s better, the ELF Jelly Highlighter is extremely versatile as it can be worn alone, mixed with foundation or over your makeup. I liked how the jelly gave off a silent shimmer. Just enough to give a subtle glow. I really liked the ELF Jelly Highlighter as the jelly highlighter gave a better glow-like finish. The ELF Jelly Highlighter retails for $6.00. It may be purchased at Target, Amazon and www.elfcosmetics.com.
If I had to choose between both highlighters, I would choose the ELF Jelly Highlighter. It gives off a beautiful glowing finish, and remains on the skin for a longer period of time. Go out and buy the ELF Jelly Highlighter today.
