NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator Review & Swatches
NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator is available in two shade selections and dare I say a great dupe for NARS Illuminator. At $7 a tube it’s a far nice option than NARS’ own $30 version.
I think you’ll particularly like Sunbeam which could be an easy replacement for Copacabana.
Take a peek!
I’m not much for liquid highlighters but even I can’t deny how easy it is to incorporate NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator into my regime. A tiny amount patted on my highbrow, on my cheek bones, or mixed with my BB Cream produces a gorgeous shimmering glow.
Sunbeam is a pretty shade of pearl pink that goes lighter pearl as you apply. The texture is a creamy, lightweight liquid that blends easily onto skin leaving behind a glistening glow with tiny, refined specks of silver sparkle. You can easily over do this look so use a tiny amount to begin and build as needed. I like mixing it with my BB Cream as it’ll produce an all over glow plus my base product will subdue and tame some of the sparkle.
I find NARS Illuminators actually have more sparkle in comparison so Born to Glow is definitely a more subtle highlighter.
A touch on your highbrow area will diffuse the look of dark circles and give your eyes a more lifted, awake look as well.
Overall, Born to Glow is an excellent liquid highlighter at a fraction of the cost compared to competitors. If you’re a highlighter girl this will indeed be a pleasing formula with a friendly price tag.
