    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

    I am amazed by the quality and performance of this product. I had actually never used a highlighter before, so I wanted to try this out to see how I liked that look on my face. I love it! I have this product in shade "Ritualistic." I have peaches-and-cream coloring, so the vanilla shade looks good. It stays all day (with the use of a NYX "dewy finish" makeup setting spray)and looks natural. I splurged and purchased Becca's Champagne Pop because I LOVE Jaclyn Hill. I do not regret purchasing the Becca highlighter because it is absolutely gorgeous, but honestly the quality of this NYX highlighter is comparable. The shade I have is not at all glittery - it is a pearlized sheen, just like Becca's product. Definitely recommend!!

      I love this illuminator. Actually I have three and I would love to eventually get all five! I love the way they look on my skin and the way there is anslight hint of color in the colored ones.

        This is a pinky toned highlighter. I loved the color but not the glitter!

        I got this as a cheap everyday highlight and I have to say I love love love it. It is comparable to The Balm Mary Lou Manizer. Something you should definitely have in your makeup bag!

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

          I was looking for an budget friendly highlighter, but this one did not do the trick. It wasn't very bright or pigmented. It gave a more natural look which is good if that is what you are going for, but I was really hoping this highlighter would pop, but it didn't do that for me.

                I love this product! It adds just enough shimmer and color without going overboard. It's really easy to apply and lasts all day.

                  Product does not leave large chunks of glitter like some other products out there. It gives you the perfect glow

                  I apply it with either a brush or just with my fingers on my cheekbones, jawbone, tip of my nose, cupids bow, chin and forehead after I contour with NYX Taupe blush. It's easy to use and not overly yellow like some luminator can be. It can be easy to over use it though. I tried to strobe with it and ended up looking like a glowing alien, haha.

                    I love love love these. I have every color, now this is no Becca x Jacyln Hill highlighter, but these are really good for when I don't want to contour and just strobe my face. Every single shade is beautiful and can replace using blush on my lazy days.

                        I have sensitive acne prone skin but this product didn't break me out. The highlight is very "golden" looking. An ok highlight if you like gold sparkles on your cheek bones.
