      This is a great highlighter for lighter skin tones. Sometimes i find that highlighters with gold undertones dont look natural on my skin so this is the perfect everyday highlighter for me. It is super easy to build up as well.

            I bought this as the buy one, get one half off sale was going on and I thought I would try it. I used most all of my ABH highlighter in my contour palette and haven't been liking my MAC shimmer powder as much lately. It adds a beautiful highlight to my brow bone,cheekbone,nose and Cupid's bow. It can be buildable from natural to crazy alien glow! Another YES from NYX!! I use my real techniques setting brush to apply. I find it very high quality with little to no fallout! Will be a staple purchase from now on!!

            It doesn't last all day but you can build up the color and it is very good for people with pale skin

              It was more of gold glitter which isn't what I expected, or what the picture showed. But in the long run it wasn't bad just pretty heavy.

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

                  I have fair skin with a red hue, and I thought this would be perfect for the summer-time, if I just wanted a light coverage with glow. I literally had to cake this on my brush, and you couldn't even see anything on my face. Nothing. Not a sparkle (I didn't want sparkles, but you get the point), glow, nothing...
                  Not worth it.
