Review & Swatches NYX~Born To Glow- Liquid Illuminator

Posted by Aamal Nauman at 12:23

Nyx Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator is basically a liquid highlighter packed in a tube.

The terms illuminator, Glow, highlighter always attracts me, Thanks to me dull and super uneven skin tone. Coming to the very product, I was excited to try something as miracle glow galore potion. I was a bit cautious too as I was perplexed to spend on something which I have never tried before, and upon searching on something budget friendly yet effective this was the only product I traced down, thanks to REFORMA.PK for abrupt availability and delivery. 



Packaging:

It comes in a tube of 18ml 0.6 floz. The tube is a little bit flat and broad. The product comes out from a tiny hole on the mouth of the tube. The packaging is handy and portable.




NYX Claims:

Instant build-able illuminator and highlighter. Light reflecting pigments for a radiant and luminous look. The lightweight liquid texture can be used on face and decollete and can be worn alone or blended with foundation for a subtle all over glow. Add an instant touch of radiance to your look.

L-R Swatch & blended

As the above shown swatches the illuminator is more liquid to cream. On application it smoothly sinks into the skin and is blend-able. You have to be really quick in blending because it dries instantly and set in no-time as soon as applied.


Blended

The illuminator includes lil glittery particles as well which brings on the shimmering effect  rather than the dewy one. The feel of the product is quite light weight so it is a plus if u have oily-combo skin. It can be patchy on dry areas of face.


on face application


Usage:

It can be used in two ways.
1. Apply all over the face before applying the foundation to get a light glowy finish.
2. Apply dots on highest points of your face with finger tips and blend with a soft blending brush for the perfect amount of strobed or highlighted effect, later you can pack with a powder highlighter for extra oomph!.


PROs:
* Easy on pocket
* Value for money
* Dupe for many high-end brands
* Suits well on oily/combo skin

CONs:
* Only available online
* Not for Dry skin



My Thoughts:
Over all an excellent budget friendly product. It is said to be a dupe of high end brands like Mac Strobe Nars albatross benefit high beam etc, So it is a steal deal for rs.1099/- on Reforma.pk .  I think Reforma.pk is the only site who deals with best prices (in terms of cosmetics selling web) and the service is superb.
