In today’s post I want to chat about the NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator. Ever since NYX was introduced into Boots stores in the UK I had always thought about getting one to try out as an alternative to the Becca Backlight Primer or Shimmering Skin Perfector. I have never tried the Becca ones so I can’t really compare the two, but this is a more affordable version to try before I commit to a Becca one.
This one is in the colour Sunbeam, which is the lighter pink toned champagne colour. I thought this one would suit my skintone better because I am very pale. I’ve been using this under my foundation everyday since I got this, and the one thing I noticed straight away was how it left my fingers super shimmery.
After applying my foundation and finishing my makeup, I can’t say that I really noticed a great amount of glow.. For £7, I didn’t expect to come out looking like a disco ball, but I expected a little bit more. I do use a matte finish foundation so maybe that contributed and in the future I’ll change it up a bit and see what the outcome is like.
Have you ever used this and what did you think?
See you in the next one!
