      This product is very lightweight, for a natural look and highlight along the side eye areas this is perfect. For people with very fair skin is not very noticeable but you can still see the natural glow.

          I cant say enough about how pretty this item is on...its more like a blush in my opinion...it goes on very smooth and even...really nice and I think as good or better than some higher end blushes/highlighters.

                I'm a fan of a lot of nyx products but this was a fail. Doesn't show up & if you put layer after layer it looks cakey. Disappointed !

                  This wasn't as glowy as I was hoping for. I like it for days when I don't want a lot of highlight, but I wish it had a little more impact.

                    I had been looking for a highlighter light enough for my skin tone for a long time and I have finally found one that works!

                    I am very fair (pale as can be with pink undertones), and this is the only highlighter I have found that actually shows up well and complements my skin tone. The powder is a smooth, shimmery white that really brightens up my makeup; like a glow from within. I use it as a highlighter for everyday use on my cheekbones and for when I contour as well. Love this product and will be repurchasing when I run out.
