E.l.f Baked Highlighter- Moonlight Pearls: Review & Swatches

Today I am here to review e.l.f baked highlighter in shade moonlight pearls. This highlighter comes in three other shades which are blush gems, pink diamonds and apricot glow but the most raved one is moonlight pearls and that is the reason I bought this shade. Now lets jump into the review.

Product Details

This highlighter creates a radiant glow with a sheer wash of shimmering color. Infused with vitamin E and hydrating jojoba, rose hip, sunflower, apricot and grape oils to nourish your skin. The highlighter can be applied wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation.


Packaging of this highlighter is very ordinary which reminds me of essence single eyeshadows. It comes in a plastic container with a clear click lid and black base. Lid is easy to open and shut. Shade of the highlighter is mentioned at the back.

My Thoughts

Moonlight pearls is a champagne color highlight with no obvious chunks of glitter which I really like. You will not get a good pigmentation at first when you swatch it because of top protective layer. It is suggested to remove the top layer to get the right pigmentation. Top layer is hard and dry. I scratched top layer from center with new nail file, but still this highlighter is not buttery like my other highlighters. Formulation is smooth but bit powdery. It applies on skin smoothly. Blends nicely on the skin. It does not accentuate my pores badly. This can be used as an everyday highlighter or for more intense look you can use it with wet brush but remember one thing in mind you will not get blinding highlight from this highlighter. This looks decent in day time without looking like a disco ball. It stays on skin for quite long and you will not feel the need to reapply it.
