On one of my most recent long, romantic strolls through Ulta, I peeped some new goodies from NYX. These “Away We Glow Liquid Highlighters” caught my eye because they reminded me of BECCA’s Spotlight Highlighters from a few years ago but in way more colors. I hadn’t heard anything about them so I picked up two shades that I thought would suit me out of the NINE available, and hoped for the best.
These liquid highlighters are in a lipgloss tube with a very cool teardrop shaped doe-foot applicator. The applicator has a little divet in the middle that holds more product than the average doe-foot tip and really helps to apply a good amount of highlighter to the face.
Gold Rush & Daytime Halo blended and unblended
Now on to the shades I got! Gold Rush is a bronzed gold pearl. Daytime Halo is a true champagne pearl. They are BOTH so gorgeous! They blend out beautifully on the face and leave a flattering glow. They formula is much thicker than the Cover FX drops which I like because, it’s easier to control. The highlights blends out well with fingers, a beauty blender, or a small brush. The beauty blender gives the most sheer application while using fingers or a brush leave more shine. I’ve tested all three because I’ve been using these basically everyday as a part of my “Work Makeup” routine. These highlighters are really buildable, I like to use one more sheer layer for everyday but using two layers (or one heavier layer) gives some serious bling on the cheek.
They also blend well when mixed with my concealers. I love to mix my BECCA SSP Liquid in Opal with my LA Girl concealer for a more luminous look under my eyes and Daytime Glow gives a very similar effect.
SIMPLY GORGEOUS! I definitely plan on picking up some more shades to play around with in the future!
