Only until recently, I felt a bit awkward about liquid highlighter. How do I use it? What do I use to apply it with? To me...it was too much thought and I couldn't be bothered. With the right tools, liquid is truly the way to go if you want a glowing appearance. The NYX Born to Glow Illuminator is meant to give you a "healthy goddess glow", and it does just that!
NYX Born to Glow Illuminator comes in Sunbeam, a gorgeous pale pink pearl shade; and Gleam, a golden peach pearl. In this blog post, I am featuring Gleam, but let me set the record straight and admit that I will be picking up Sunbeam as soon as I see it in stores! I saw Sunbeam when I was at the NYX Cosmetics Spring 2013 Launch Event and I need it in my life!
The texture of this product is cream, lightweight and dries beautifully, giving you a glowing finish. I personally like to take the product, squeeze some onto the back on my hand and apply it with a beauty blender to my cheek bones, forehead and chin. You can also use a duo-fibre brush, like the Sigma Beauty, F55 Small Duo Fibre Brush, which would be my second choice. I have yet to try this techquiqe, but I think that during the Summertime, mixing a bit of this liquid illuminator with your liquid foundation will make your skin look amazing! Hmmm...perhaps I will try that this weekend!
I just love how my cheeks glow!
I didn't apply much, but just enough to make my skin look healthy!
Bottom line...I love this stuff! I usually use powder highlighters, but if you are truly opting for a dewy glow, then a product like this one is your best bet. If I get Sunbeam, I will let you know what I think, but judging by how much I am enjoying this product, I am sure that my thoughts will remain the same.
