Baked Highlighter is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 571.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finicky but blinding As many others have said, you have to scrape the top layer of the product to get any pigment, but I found even after it was still tricky to get my brush to pick anything up. I tried wetting it instead which seemed to work much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read to get more pigmentation I bought this product some time ago and I was very dissatisfied. Then I learned that if you use any metal or hard tool (I used metal tweezers) to scrape the surface of the highlighter then underneath is the product. If you buy it the surface will be hard as it is a baked product and by running your finger over you will get the highlighter visible but applying was a whole other story. With this trick I was able to apply it much easier. It doesn't even look that bad after the scraping. For the price worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning I recently just bought this one week ago and I love it! I scraped off the first layer and the highlighter works like magic. I use a fan brush to apply this and with one coat, it is a dewy glow. The product is pigmented and is buildable. Love love love

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scrape off the top***Gives that perfect dewy glow You absolutely HAVE to scrape off the top layer! i used the back end of my tweezers and after scrapping it off.. OH MY GOODNESS IT'S PERFECT. Yes you can apply it with a brush, I do! I bought moonlight pearls and blushed gems and theyre both absolutely beautiful highlighters. I actually prefer it over my smashbox highlighters because the e.l.f ones are soo much more natural looking and gives that perfect dewy glow you see all over instagram. I keep moonlight pearls in my vanity and blushed gems in my makeup bag for backup because theyre so conveniently sized!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Highighter I bought the Moonlight Pearls highlight earlier this year and was disappointed at first because when I went to use it, no color came off. After watching my favorite YouTuber, I found that you had to "scrape off" the top layer. After I did just that, fell in love with the highlight! I'd recommend this product to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Drugstore Highlight! I love this highlighter! It was finally in stock in my local Walmart so I picked up Moonlight Pearls. I've heard you have to "Scrape off" the top layer to get pigment, but I just took a tissue and rubbed it all over the surface. After that, I got tons of color payoff! It is such a beautiful highlight and it stays on all day. My new favorite!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Pigment! I bought this highleghter in Moonlight pearls a month back. I love the pigment and the color, and it stays on all day. My only problem is that you have to get it soaking wet to get sigificant color payoff, but otherwise I love this highlighter!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Pigment I bought this with the excitement that its just a beautiful colour. When i went to apply there was no pigment. It basically went on bare, i have heard the top needs to be scraped off so I did and still no pigment at all. Not sure if its only this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Color I bought this about a month ago and it is beautiful. I bought the color blushed gems and it was darker then the picture but was not mad about it. I have light to medium skin and it looked beautiful. I sometimes just put it on with no foundation just to look at the color. It's great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful color! So i bought this product about a week ago and I've found that it is quiet dry and barely comes on my e.l.f illuminating brush. However i have found (after watching jeffree star's video) i found that if you scrape the top layer off with your nail it applies WAY better. I still find it quiet hard to pick up with the illuminating brush but not going to lie it picks up REALLY good with my finger lol and on the angled contour brush. However it does wear off after a few hours but for the price it is definitely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great highlighter This product is really beautiful in colour and finish. When applying onto your brush it may not look like theres much product until you apply it. The product then goes on really nicely and has a natural finish with a nice highlighting effect. I bought the moonlight pearl and blush gems, both are really nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wouldn't recommend. So I just recently got this product in the mail and it was SO DRIED OUT, literally. I even rub it extremely hard and still NOTHING. I wouldn't recommend this product at all if you're looking for a HIGHLIGHT BLING.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Apricot Glow - no I got this the first day it was released and was excited about it. When I got it and opened it, it swatched nice but on my face I couldn't even see it. I kept applying and applying. When I got closer to the mirror to see it, the highlighter just looked like a gold messy streak my face. When I blended it got messier. I have pinktastic and that is a lovely highlighter with good consistently. This apricot Glow is close to the eyeshadow enchanted which looks better in the pan then on the face. Save your money and get a tarte highlighter. Get some e reward points and get a free one. 2 stars is for elf customer service hooking me up. You guys are awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for WOC Apricot Glow is an essential highlighter! I had to get it as soon as I saw it's release. Super pigmented and complimentary for darker skin tones. Kind of reminds me of Champagne Pop. It isn't too glittery or chunky but you definitely can easily achieve a "blinging" highlight. My new holy grail!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Apricot glow I just received the new apricot glow, and it is really pretty to look at. If you want a warm, peachy, golden glow, grab this before it sells out. The radiance is a bit subtle with this one, and it will not give you a blinding shine. But that's not such a bad thing, and this particular shade is gorgeous for those with warm, yellow undertones. It may sound strange, but I have found the best way to apply is to use a sponge tip eyeshadow applicator (yes,those things are very useful!). Eyeshadow applicators are great for products like this that are baked and set. Apply after setting your makeup with powder, and use fingers to blend. The applicator allows for precise control in applying on the nose, eyelids, top lip, chin, forehead, etc. Be careful if you have textured skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blinding! I bought this highlight a few weeks ago and it is stunning! I bought the shade "Moonlight Pearls" and it is the perfect white-gold shade for a pale person like myself. The only thing I will say is that I needed to scrape off the top layer of product before I used it in order to get the full benefit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dried out very quickly I bought this product a while ago and for the first week or two it was great. But, after five or six uses, the sparkle and highlight began to not even show up on my face. The formula was very dry and I had to wet my brush to even get any product on it, and even then it was no where near pigmented enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty highlighter! The color is very pretty and looks great on my skin. The only thing that I don't like is that you have to scrape the top layer off in order to get full pigmentation. Other than that he shade is beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apricot Glow! They changed the formula! I have already purchased Moonlight Pearls and Blush Gems and as many know you have to remove the top layer with a piece of tape and our nails to get the outstanding pigment, BUT NOT ANYMORE! I swatched the highlight immediately out of the box and I was shocked that there was already an amazing glow. I removed the top layer of half and it swatched pretty much exactly the same. The product with the tape removal was a tiny bit more pigmented but that would be true of any product. The color itself is gorgeous, a peach glow perfect for tanned skin in the summer!Moonlight pearls and blush gems are nice colors as well but I find that especially with the removal of the top layer, the fall-out is pretty bad, but the pigmentation is definitely there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apricot glow is beautiful I'm medium light complexion. I have 50+ highlighters & I didn't have one this color. It's a peachy gold color & it's beautiful. I use Melanie Mills peach deluxe as my base & then a foundation. This highlighter looks amazing it makes me feel very beautiful & ready for my summer glow. Please bring back peachy keen blush it would look amazing with this highlighter. Btw don't be afraid to try this if you're light complected. It's not extremely dark with a light dusting of this you can wear it too. Beautiful also wet in the center of my halo eyeshadow look as well as in the lip for​ an unexpected beautiful glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best drugstore Highlighter! OMG!! This is an amazing highlighter and the best part of it is the price. This is like an high end product. It is pigmented and applies really well on the high point of my cheeks. At first, when I swatched it, I didn't get anything but as soon as I scrapped off the top layer, Gosh! It is amazing. Totally recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from High Hopes... I bought Blush Gems, Moonlight Pearls, and Pink Diamonds. They're only $4 a pop, so I figured I'd try what everyone was raving about. In my opinion, the pan is very dry and grainy looking, sparking my skepticism. The swatches were very shimmery and slightly pigmented, but they did offer a subtle glow, so I'm pleased with that. I'm going to try and wet them like I've seen many people have suggested to see if it offers a more opaque finish. Hopefully I will love this product because I had such high hopes for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product! A big pet peeve of mine is when people hate on a product but don't use it properly. The description clearly says that you can use it dry for sheer pigment or you can wet it for a more opaque pigment. Also it states that in the how to use section and the video.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Higlighter Once Film Is Removed People are complaining that they can't get the color to do anything so I investigated since I had the same problem with the one I bought in a store. I just used a tissue, wiped the complete top of the baked product off and it was fine. If you look at the ingredients list they all start with Nylon-12. That is a polymer film that can be used in many applications from foods to cosmetics to create a thin seal or used to form plastic covers, films, etc. It would be nice if ELF added that into the directions for use, but know you all know. Look it up on a search engine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from That highlight though!!! WOW! This highlighter is bangin'! Once I figured out I was supposed to rub a tissue/cloth over the top to remove the "invisible seal", this shimmery highlighter became a permanent part of my daily makeup routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DEPOT IT for stronger pigment (dry brush) Upon experimenting with the product for a few months, I started to notice decrease pigmentation in my highlighter. So one day, for the sake of experimentation, I decided to depot my highlighter and that made the world of a difference.
