i have 2 of these and they make my skin look so dewy and wet looking when applied on top or underneath foundation! powders apply nicely on top and most can look blinding and more glowy on the skin due to this product, i dont have anything bad to say about this item

I am in my late teens with oily, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is light brown, normal with normal texture.
This product was part of a NYX gift set after Christmas and the set contained a 13ml tube of the Born to Glow Illuminator. The product gives a nice illuminating effect on the skin, I don't get on very well with liquid highlighter/illuminating products so I wouldn't repurchase this - However, if you like those types of products then I think this is worth a try.

I love this! I received a mini as part of a gift set and I must say I’ll defintly be going back for a full size! I use this over my foundation before I set it and it gives such a beautiful, dewy , glowing look! It can be natural or you can build it up and be blinding! Also it looks amazing by itself but to make it pop it is a great base for powder highlighter. The formula is easy to blend with either a sponge or a brush or even your fingers! Definitely recommend!!

I purchased this a while ago, It's not for me. I personally prefer powder highlighters as they sit well on top of my face powder. This obviously wouldn't because it's a cream product but I found it too fiddly to apply under the power properly. It doesn't blend very well and the end result is very underwhelming.

Not as good as i expected! Not the easiest to blend and doesn't show up anywhere near as much as i thought it would, not very pigmented or shimmery, but it's good if you want a more simple/natural looking highlighter
