NYX Liquid Illuminator | Gleam

Friday, 21 March 2014

Highlighters have to be one of my favourite beauty products. I love the look of glowing skin and how fresh and healthy a highlight can make you look. The newest highlighter I have added to my collection is this beautiful liquid highlighter from NYX in the shade Gleam

Gleam has a beautiful peachy rose tone to it with a stunning gold sheen. This highlighter looks like liquid rose gold! Some highlighters can have quite chunky glitter content to them, Gleam however has a finely milled shimmer to it which is perfect for a more natural looking highlight that can be worn day or night. As it has has a warmer tone, this shade is perfect for more tanned skin and will give you such a sun kissed glow. I can't wait to wear this on holiday!

Being a liquid, this highlight blends beautifully onto the skin with minimal effort and sets to a beautiful natural finish. I love that this highlight keeps its dewy look even after it sets and doesn't turn powdery at all. Gleam has lovely pigmentation which has just the right amount of intensity to it. One drop of this stuff is enough to highlight each cheek for me so this 18ml tube should last me a while! My favoruite ways to apply this is by stippling onto my cheekbones with a small duo fibre brush or just by tapping it on with my fingers.

On me, this liquid illuminator can last around 5 hours before it begins to fade which is fabulous for a creamy product. Cream and liquid face products are perfect for anyone like me who has dry skin but loves the dewy look.

I have become absolutely obsessed with this highlight and I can already tell this will be my favourite highlighter for this spring and summer! The peachy tone adds warmth to my face as well as a beautiful natural glow. NYX also have another shade in the range which is more of a champagne shade which will be perfect for paler skin girls. If you love a dewy highlighter that gives you a beautiful warm glow you NEED this in your life!

NYX Liquid Illuminator in Gleam is available online for £7.00
