    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Illuminator:

    This is a classic glossy highlight. It doesn't have a lot of base pigment, so all you get is a sheen of glow. It's also really buildable, which makes it great to put on lightly during the day and to layer on at night. I love the color, too - it's a really nice neutral gold that gives you a nice summery glow.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Illuminator:

        I have been looking for the perfect pink highlighter to wear without foundation due to my pink undertones skin and it's perfect for that! I think its really something you can build up and its just perfect! The only con I would have is that it breaks fairly easily so buyers, watch out for that. Overall, great product for the low price and I will be buying this again.

              I have an illuminator shade that's more like a blush shade so I apply lightly at the top of my cheek bones.

              Way Too Pigmented

              By TheGypsyQueenHaylee

              from Rockford, IL

              Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Illuminator:

              I usually love pretty much all Nyx Products, I just can't seem to like this product at all. It is way to pigmented for my liking. It makes me look I have some sort of disease whenever I wear it. I had such high expectations for this because I love Nyx but this is a total disappointment.

                Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Illuminator:

                Not very pigmented. This formula felt like scratchy powder (think art class shimmer flakes). It doesn't have much color when on the skin, but also leaves a powdery sheen like you got in a fight with baby powder.

                  Very bright, definitely an illuminator rather than highlight

                    I love this illuminator! I wouldn't quite call this a highlighter as it doesn't have a super metallic look, it's not blinding or anything but I love to use it as a base to really make highlighters pop more or I apply it liberally when I want a more natural and subtle glow! Ritualistic is a very light, white gold shade that will look very nice on pale skin like mine, however it may not be the best option for someone who is darker, as it is very light.
