    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

    I absolutely love this product for providing the perfect amount of highlight and brightening.
    When you first put it on, it has a yellow tint but once the fine shimmery powder is blended out, it looks so natural.
    I apply it to the bridge of my nose, my brows and check bones. I dont' wear too much makeup but this gives a nice dewy glow to my face. Definitely recommended! *

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Illuminator:

      My skin is pretty fair and this product just looks odd on me. It is very glittery/shimmery and not natural looking at all. It may work well for other skin types but for me this was a fail.

              I absolutely love this highlighter. Purchased this in Enigmatic and although it looks pinkish in the pan, it does not apply pink. Ges very well with my warm undertone skin. I've been using it almost everyday since purchasing it two weeks ago!!

                Okay so this is the first time I've purchased an illuminator/ highlighter. At first it applied chalky so I decided to spray some fix+ on my brush before and it worked out perfectly. Without fix+ it can look a bit chalky. Overall this is a great drugstore highlighter!!!

                  I bought this as a highlighter in Ritualistic. I expected it to be a nude ish shimmer, but it's like a shimmer white. I was a little confused, so it's not a light tan nude like it looks like in the picture, just know that going in ;).

                    I bought the Narcissism and Ritualistic illuminators. And I should have listened to reviews because the liquid one is 100 times better. When I swatched the illuminate in the store they were gorgeous on my hand but you can't she it on my face... Get the liquid

                      Great Illuminator for the price and the way it looks on the skin. When you put on the skin it gives a nice glow to it.

                        I've searched high and low for a good pressed powder highlighter and have only been disappointed until I found this little gem! I was worried it would be too sparkly because in the compact it looks very glittery, but when applied it is not as sparkly as I feared. It gives a beautiful glow to the skin! I put a little on my forehead, a bit on my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, and a bit on the chin. Put it wherever light would naturally hit your face. LOVE this.

                            This product can be applied to cheeks as a blush or applied all over the face for subtle glow. It contains radiant shimmer to brighten the complexion.
