    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

    There are very few makeup products that I buy more than once, and this is one I'll be buying again! I originally bought it as a liquid highlighter in the summer (in gold; I have medium/olive skin and tan easily), but once I tried it as a mix-in with my tinted moisturizer, I was really sold. Mixed in with tinted moisturizer (or even a lightweight foundation), it provides a beautiful, natural-looking, dewy glow all over the skin. I sometimes use it for its original purpose as well, highlighting my cheeks and the tip of my nose, but I absolutely love it as a mix-in.

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

      I had really high hopes for this product and it didn't exactly meet my expectations. It was difficult to apply because when ever I tried to blend it out with either my finger, a brush, or a beauty blender it turned out very streaky and you could easily see the outer lines of the Highlight. I was disappointed in the product but I do think it could work as a nice subtle glow for the summer time.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

        I use "Gleam", and I mix in a little with some of my moisturizer (Neutrogena oil-free with SPF 35) to create a psuedo-dupe of MAC's strobe cream. I have oily skin, and this makes a perfect natural highlighter of all my high-points that isn't too jarring against my otherwise mattified face. Wish there was a larger quantity though, but you don't need a lot to achieve a natural highlight.

              I liked this product. I wanted to try something new to use under my foundation. I wish it was a little bit thicker. I feel like I have to put on two layers. Very smooth and blendable.
