Rated 3.96 out of 5 stars
Absolutely love this product - Use with Foundation to get that sun-kissed glow. Then I top it off to highlight! AWESOME and hope the product stays around forever!
Ugh...no, no no. It stands out very obviously on the skin and doesn't blend well at all!! God forbid you put it in the wrong spot because once that bad boy is there it is THERE, I couldn't get it to budge or blend for anything!! It just really didn't look natural on my skin at all.

It's glittery, which shows through my makeup. Does not make my skin look glowy.

This is not it ladies. This formulation is not smooth, does not blend well and is FAR to shimmery/glittery. Definitely will never repurchase.
Sgamiz from Florida
I don't recommend. Not very cute. I would just wear a regular highlighter then put powder over it and book does a way better job. Cuz all these illuminators just look really greasy. No no no no no

I use this under my can't stop won't stop foundation for an extra glow. Looks pretty!
Joy from Los Angeles
Goes on smooth and makes my skin glow with just enough color
Tamy from Texas
Good pigment and shines perfect glam
Jai from Los Angeles
I don't like this on top of foundation as it emphasizes texture and ends up wearing off after a few short hours. But I put it on under foundation and it was a game changer. I really like the effect. It just gives a lit from within glow that lasts. A little goes a long way. Be careful with the more pigmented ones as they may change the color of your foundation if you use too much.
Tanya from Washington
I applied this on the places wanted highlighted and it is beautiful but didn't last as long as I wanted it

nyx had a real liquid highlighter (with a dropper) but I can't seem to find it anymore so I bought this. I hoped it would be easy to blend over foundation but it takes some work to keep it from looking patchy. I mixed with foundation and that's a little better but far less control where it goes.

It is a gorgeous highlighter, but it definitely emphasizes texture really bad. It blends pretty. If you don't have texture issues I'd go with it! It can go over powder foundation but it looks best over liquid or bare skin. It's shimmery but not glittery. Buildable!

this was too watery and transparent when applied. took it back
Maddie from North Carolina
Gave a nice highlight, though a tad too shimmery for my taste. Lasted well, though was a bit hard to get off. Just a warning: you barely need to use any! A little goes a looooong way with this.
Diamond from New York
I use this product almost like a foundation, it's light and makes your skin bright. It's not too bright it's just right. When you shine better you feel better.
Gracie from Vernal Utah
I put the highlighter on my cheek bones, creases of my eyes, and in the mid line of my nose. It works well as you first put it on but I noticed after just a few hours it begins to wear.
Vicky from Florida
I use over makeup or alone. Really lights up the face and is easy to apply. Love this product!
Lavo from Visalia,CA
I love this bronzer. Looks dark, but blends right in for am awesome glow.
Jess from Pittsburgh
This goes on great by itself or over your foundation as a highlighter. Love it for summertime.
JJ from WA
I thought this was going to be more of a subtle glow but it's super glittery

doesn't do anything to me
emilygrace_25 from Burlington, VT
This highlighter does its job. For me personally it's a little too intense and I find that I have to use a very small amount. I don't think the highlight is natural at all, it's pretty obvious you've got a super shimmery highlighter on. But if that's what you're looking for this would be great and it's inexpensive.
Ella from South Carolina
I use this as a primer under my foundation and a little goes a long way! I apply my foundation on top and boom, an instantly glowy, natural look. I highly recommend getting it in the shade sunbeam, that's the one I use, not sure how the others look on.
Andy from Seattle
For the price and product this does exactly what you'd expect it to do. I do a few drops high on my cheekbones towards my temples. It's great and I prefer it to powder because it gives you the dewy look!
Casino gal from Laughlin
On the nose and as blush.
Ladano from Fresno, CA
Gives a subtle glow & lasts all day.
Lisa from USA
I thought I would get a nice glow from this. I'm about a NC45 and bought the Pure Gold and it's too dark. It's a bit darker than my skin color. Also, it's not gold. It's more of a copper (notice the orange undertone). The color or the illuminator is the same color as the bottle it comes in. It also has micro-glitter. Maybe I should have tried gleam but if there's micro-glitter in that as well, I don't want it. I have another liquid illuminator by another company and it doesn't contain micro-glitter. I'll return this.
