Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

I purchased this highlighter initially as a finisher for contouring. Unfortunately I ended up purchasing a dry powder contour kit so that didn't quite work out. I have tried using this product as a highlighter when I work or go with a more natural look. I like that the product is smooth and blend-able. I do find myself really searching my face in the light to see where it is at when all is said and done. I feel like it is kind of hard to see. I don't want to look like I bathed in glitter or anything, but a nice dewy shimmer would be good. I didn't really get that here. So I can't say this is going in my arsenal for regular wear.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

          I was excited to receive this product as it has received many high ratings on YouTube due to its "dupe" to Benefits "high beam". When I initially used this, I was dissappointed because it was difficult to apply and looked a bit blotchy on my skin. However, after using it for a week now I love it!!! The formula is not the best in terms of blend ability. It's not as creamy as other liquid highlighters. However, I have found that using a damped sponge to apply this with will leave the skin looking glowy and radiant without the blotchy patches. As far as pigmentation, it's pretty good! It's definitely "BAM! In your face" so if you're looking for a subtle highlight, this isn't for you. It lasts allllll day and does not smudge which is amazing. But it's easy to take off at the end of the day with a makeup remover wipe or face wash.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

                I really liked the natural highlight it gave my face until I realized it had super chunky glitter in it. If I was able to lend it out well and put a smooth highlight on top, it looked fine. I was looking for an illuminator to use as a type of primer, and it WILL NOT work for that - unless you want a glittery face.
