        I purchased this with hopes of it being a dupe for a Nars liquid highlighter. The product itself performs well-as expected! Unfortunately, I feel like the container is half empty (thinK like a bag of chips: Half full of chips, half full of air,) and is much smaller than I thought it'd be.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator:

                I wanted a cream highlighter, so I was excited to find this product. Unfortunately, it looks great when swatched, and first applied, but when it dries on my face, it moves my foundation/ concealer around and makes it look all patchy. I even tried it as a browbone highlight and it does the same thing to my foundation and eyeshadow. It just didn't live up to what I was expecting.

                  I like the product but i have complain with Ulta... I bought it online from ulta and it did not come in sealed packaging... It seems it has been used, its half empty :( i bought the same product from cvs online and that came in sealed packaging and a good amount comes out with little squeeze.

                  I bought this as an alternative to other products.I found it pretty good.The best effect is to take this and mix with your foundation, you will see the best results.Only drawback is slides around a bit.

                    I mixed a tiny bit of this product with my regular foundation for a "glowy" look and it was beautiful! Perfect amount of glow if your going for the J-Lo look. I also used it alone as a highlighter and I was just as beautiful!

                          You may prefer the warmer golden peach tones of Gleam.

                        How does this product react to someone with sensitive eyes?

                        Which of the two available shades are best with someone with fair to medium skin?

                        Thanks!

                          A:

                          We do not recommend applying this product to the immediate eye area. Both shades would work well for you, depending on the look you seek. Sunbeam features a pale pink pearl finish for a brightening effect, while Gleam features a golden peach pearl finish for a warm, healthy glow.
