    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

    I wish you could give half stars. The product is very pretty in its compact container but upon application it's beauty almost disappears. I'm not 100% sure it's the product that is my issue or my base facial primer isn't very good. I'm sure the problem is fixable, but i have yet to discover the resolving product. Overall it's still a very pretty highlighter, and I am willing to give a good recommendation for it.

      It's kinda hard to apply with a brush... so I use my finger. But other than that it works great!

      Really was looking for a higlighter to pop. Not what I got with this. Color is great. Looks great over cream highlighter. Just not for me.

          When I was at the store and rubbed it in my hand it seemed super pigmented but once I got home it wouldn't show up on my cheeks. I'm going to give it another try when I buy a new brush.

              I have never used this brand before and bought it on a whim. I absolutely LOVE it. It provides a soft color with beautiful glow. It is light enough to wear during the daytime for a more natural look, and if applied heavier perfect for the evening. So very versatile.
