The obsession with highlighting has been taken to a whole new level. There are so many new products released every day and it's difficult to try them all, but I'm giving it a shot. We've reached a point where the majority of us have a common goal, to blind our enemies with our highlight. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with that and if you can't see me from space, I didn't try hard enough. Today I'm going to share another product with you to help you on your journey to do the same.
Liquid Highlight Review Nyx

The Nyx Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator is not a really new product, but it's new to me. I always passed over it and assumed it wasn't for me, until my most recent Ulta trip. I decided to go ahead and swatch them in store and I was kind of blown away. I'm always weary of liquid products, but decided to bring one home with me and I am so glad that I did.

I picked up the lightest shade available, Sunbeam. It's a gorgeous pearl-toned color, just wait until you see the swatch.
Nyx Sunbeam Swatch

This is very liquid-y as the name suggests, and I've applied it a couple of different ways. I've mixed it with my foundation to make my foundation even more glow-y, which worked wonderfully. I've applied it over my foundation with a beauty blender and also over powder with a beauty blender and no matter how I applied it, it looked gorgeous. It didn't cake up or pick up my foundation, it blended well and sat perfectly on top of the powder. The pigmentation is insane so you'll only need the tiniest amount. 

If you're trying to get a super intense highlight, you need this. You can even put a highlight powder on top for even more intensity and it's insanely gorgeous. Not to mention, it's super inexpensive and comes in other shades if the pearly glow isn't for you. It also comes in Gleam, a golden peach tone, Pure gold, a gold tone, and Sun Goddess, a bronze tone. I definitely think I'll try Gleam next!

As I mentioned, you can find these at Ulta for $7.50. You can also get them on Nyx Cosmetics website. 

Thanks for reading!

  6. This seems like a great drugstore option instead of the Becca shimmering skin perfecters or the new CoverFX highlight drops. Good to know this is worth the buy!

    1. Yes! It's definitely comparable to the Becca liquids! I actually like the Nyx one better.
