    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator:

    When I first swatched this at the store I thought it was very pigmented and it seemed pretty good. I bought it and after trying it out, I was very disappointed. It barely showed on my skin and it wasn't as pigmented as I thought. I had to layer it on for it to work and the consistency was very thick. Would not recommend this highlighter unfortunately.

              I have the product in gleam which is a realy pretty highlight color. Unfortunately, I feel it was a waste of money. It doesnt blend well. I applied it to my cheek bones and tried to blend it out and it just sat in place and was too shimmery in that one spot. The only way I could successfully use it was the mix it with a light foundation anx then apply it as a highlight.

                I use this every day. I love to have a little sparkle and glimmer. For a more subtle look I mix a small amount in with my moisturizer. For a full on glittery look I apply it straight to my cheeks and a little bit all over.

                  Not liking this product as much as I thought I would. It has a hard time blending and looking natural for my skin tone.

                        I purchased this in gleam, and I really like it. I have dark skin, so I found that the product kinda blended right into my skin. It was not very noticeable but there is a slight sheen which I actually like, rather than it being a sparkly mess. I suppose if you wanted it to show more, it would be best to layer it on. I used my finger to smudge it across the top of my cheek bones, and on the bridge of my nose. I find that it kind of highlights the pores on my nose, so I probably won't be doing that again.. but I do love it on my cheeks!

                        I used the product to highlight my cheekbones, but it's litter a tube of clear glitter and it's barely noticeable. Definitely not worth the money.. It looks pretty good at first but fades fast. You might has well just take a shimmery eyeshadow and put it on your face.
