        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

        Great illuminance! Shades for all skin tones are available, and it looks very natural if you apply very minimally! I love this product. I have very pale skin, so it's hard finding a shade of highlighter that look natural. The lightest shade (the light pink bottle) is my favorite highlighter ever! Liquid highlighter is so much better than powder highlighter in my opinion. Great product! Cheap too!

        As a highlight this is very clumpy and doesn't blend well but if you mix it into your foundation it adds a beautiful dewy glow!

            Absolute trash. Bought it because so many people said such good things, then tried it four different times, four different ways to see if it worked better. Wrong. Had to wash my face and start my whole routine again. Ugh. Doesn't blend, doesn't look natural, heavy, chalky, weird color not meant for me

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

            I think this highlighter is great for brown skin because the bronze color looks natural. It gives a soft highlight but it doesn't stay on all day. Even so, I still like it and would recommend it. I have oily skin so most products have to be reapplied. If you're not oily, it might last longer.

              I bought this thinking it was comparable to STILA illuminator and it isn't. With the STILA I was able to put it on all over my face and use it like a foundation and just gave me that glow. With this one, it was too heavy and make me look orange.

                I apply this under foundation. Adds just the right amount of glow for everyday wear. Would add more on top of foundation for nights out. Little goes a long way. Nice shimmer. The lighter color is perfect for fair skin.
