Most Helpful Positive Review Great Champagne Highlight
I really enjoyed this fine shimmer champagne highliter. The photo I posted here is a bit warmer toned in general but I think it more closely reflects the shade. This highlight powder is definitely a more natural highliter shade for me than what I normally wear - as I normally wear a pink duochrome highlight on my cheekbones/brow/cupids bow. The packaging is sturdy, but I feel that the price point for this product should come down as the price for NYX's Duochrome highlighters pack a punch too and are a smidge cheaper. I feel that this is on par with NYX's other powder highlighters but just a great alternate shade if you are missing a champagne New Year's Eve-y shade in your collection and want one big single shade.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good for subtle highlight
The NYX High Glass Illuminating powder did a fine job. This is the lightest of the 3 shades in the shade moon glow. It has a bit of a gold tone to it when you apply it. It's not as prominent as some highlighters that I have had before. It is great for a subtle look. I tried on the back of my hand and it is a little buildable. Not as crazy bright as some that I have seen when you build them up, kind of gas a max out. I do like that it had a warmer tone to it which made it look more natural than if I put a cool tone.

Reviewed by 298 customers Great formula, not what I expected.
Crys from TN
This is a glitter product and not a shimmer, and it is quite gold instead of bronzy on the skin. Despite my disappointment, I am giving it 4 stars instead of 3, because the formula is lovely. just not just not what I thought it would be.
I would definitely but again!

I love the glow that this product gives you. Use it on cheeks and eyes
Save yourself the money!!

I assumed this was a powder highlighter, which is my mistake. However, I did not like this highlighter at ALL. I got it in the shade daytime halo and the only way to get any sort of pigmentation is to aggressively rub your finger in the product; you can't really pick up anything with a brush unless you really dig. It is not flattering on the skin either and has too much glitter in it.

Have used it several times and loved how it looks.
The Perfect High Gloss Look
Vonn from Cincinnati, Ohio
I first apply foundation, then shading product, followed by blush, finished with the high gloss. Had tried other gloss products that didn't offer the same amount of 'oomph' I wanted. I LOVE this product.
Glitter city!!! No thanks!!!
Steph from Medina
If you love glitter you will love this stuff!! Unfortunately I'm not going for that I made out with unicorn look soooo I'm returning lol
Adriana from Covington
I was looking for a dupe for hourglass finishing powders and this is close. I use this all over the face.
Cds from Ashland,OH

I would buy again
Leele from Baltimore, MD
Great illuminating powder. Creates a nice subtle glow, but I felt like I really had to cake it on to get the glow I was expecting.
NYX HIGH GLASS
Jen from New York
First thing I notice is the packaging, it's appealing. Which I look for in products. When I applied it onto my skin it's texture is creamy. The pigmentation is brightening. I would use this underneath my foundation to give it a boost of glow. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Jamie from Augusta, GA
I personally prefer a powder highlighter but this one was still great. I don't have anything to compare it to though, however it was definitely easy to apply and looked p cute. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Left much to be desired
Syd from Brandon, Ms
This gives a very light healthy glow. It's not as pigmented as I would have liked it to be. However the formula is not chalky.
This highlight is bomb!
Lawshootz from Los Angeles
This illuminating powder is bomb! A little powder goes a long way so you don't have to layer it on your skin in order for it to glow on your skin. The glow is really beautiful and it lasts really long! I'm totally going to use this highlight and buy it in the future!
In the photo you can see the highlight on my upper lip and the tip of my nose! It looks like I was kissed by the sun but I took this in the bathroom lol.

I received this product complementary to try. I used this illuminating powder with the illuminating finish powder and also the primer. I believe these products are great if you are looking for a dewy glowy look. The illuminating powder is great and it doesn't have big chunks of glitter. It gives it a nice shine. Although the shine does seem intense when using it beside the other high glass products. I used it alone and alongside the collection and it would definitely be using it often.
I love this powder
LadyBee from Columbus,OH
This shimmer powder was amazing. I'd definitely add this my summer must haves. The glow it leaves is beyond belief. I can see myself applying this on a summer night on the town. It provided the perfect glow and really accentuates facial features. I really liked this product and will definitely purchase in the future. I recessive this product to test and leave an honest review.
I like the finish
Mallorie from Conyers, Ga
I love this highlighter! It has a soft shimmer, and I like that it matches my deeper skin tone. I also like how cute the package is!
pretty, but not the best.
Sandra0727 from Albuquerque
I thought this product was good. It's not the best, but it got the job done. The color is pretty but isn't as strong as other highlighters.
Drew from Miami
I love this so much. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it broke in transit and I noticed it did for a lot of people. So I'm guessing it's because of the formula. Other than that it gave me a glowing from within look. I love it I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
I love this powder!
H from Tennessee
I love this powder! It's perfect for that glow-from-within look. This powder sets my foundation and makes me GLOW without looking like a disco ball. I can't say enough good things about this product!
Very shiny and sparkly
Andrea from Michigan
This is great to use if you want to get the shiny and sparkly look. It didn't feel too harsh on my skin.
Issa from Chino Hills, CA
I love the way this feels! I've found that the density makes it easier to apply with your fingers than with a brush and it goes on beautifully. It's thankfully not to glittery, but more glowy I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Glow to the No from Texas
I received this product for free to review. I used it in conjunction with the high gloss primer. It seemed to have a very subtle effect, but when combined with the primer it was able to give the look I was trying to achieve.
Kay from Dallas, TX
One word. Butterrrrrrrrr. This illuminating powder is so soft to the touch, and it melts right into the skin to give a "glow from within" look. Love love love! Definitely looking forward to trying out other shades. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
I love the subtle glow!
Steph from Houston
I have tan skin and can really struggle with finding a good highlighter sometimes. I love how this highlighter shows on my skin but doesn't look chalky. The formula is soft and creamy almost. I would definitely recommend for someone needing a nice highlighter that isn't too expensive!
Mc makeup lover from Reedley, CA
Using this product was a great experience. First of all, I received this product as a sample to try out. I would say that there was no cons using this product. The illumination from the highlighter was just the right amount but not too much. My favorite part about using this product is it was buildable. All in all, this product is a great drug store highlighter.
