    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

    This highlighter is greater for an overall dewey and glowy look. I like applying it with a foundation brush under my foundation or even lightly on top for a nice glow. It's not too shiny and looks nice with my pale complexion. It's very smooth and light.

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

      ((I purchased the champagne (pink) liquid highlighter))
      It was ok? It barely did the highlighting job I wanted- which personally, I like a really pronounced highlight so maybe I'm too harsh...
      Anyway, it took a *lot* of product to actually get the "highlighting" effect at all, it did not stay on by the end of the day, and it was hard to blend out evenly. Don't be fooled, swatching it is pretty, but I wouldn't buy it again; just my two cents. :)

      I like it but it doesn't last long. You also have to use a lot to get it to show or cover your face.

          This is best used as a primer. Or anywhere underneath foundation you feel needs highlighting.

            Sheer product... NOT a highlighter

            By Shell

            from Florida

            Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator:

            For some reason i bought this thinking it was a highlighter but its not. It says its an illuminater. I spread it on my cheekbones and brow bones over my foundation and I wasn't impressed. It was hard to blend and moved my foundation around. I give it 3 stars because i may have used it incorrectly. Some reviews on here suggests mixing it with bb cream so I'll have to try that.
