I recently picked up another one of NYX’s newer releases, the Hydra Touch Brightener in Luminous. This is going to be a super quick review and you’ll see why once you see the swatch below.
First lets check out NYX’s description of the product:
“Leave your complexion with a soft wash of color using the NYX Cosmetics’ Hydra Touch Brightener. This water-based crayon instantly illuminates while giving off a cooling sensation upon contact with skin”
The product just did not live up to any of the claims that NYX describes. I got no “soft wash of color” as the product essentially disappeared when I blended it out with my fingers. My skin didn’t look “illuminated”, just a lil hint of ash left behind and we all know ash is a brown girl’s worst nightmare. As for the “cooling sensation”, unfortunately I didn’t really feel that either. The product blended out did seem to blur my pores a bit but for that I’d rather reach for a primer. Obviously, this product gets a strong NO from me.
