Love this as a highlight

By Lisa Marie

from FL

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

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.

                  good not great

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

                  I purchased the shade Ritualistic. While I do like the application consistency and the length of time it lasts I don't like how much I have to apply at a time to get the highlight that I desire. I feel like I have to apply two times as much as I am used to applying with my Tarte powder highlighter. Overall good purchase.
