In case what you were wondering what the whole tube looks like, this is it!


The other day, I purchased @nyxcosmetics Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam at @ultabeauty for $8! I've heard nothing but amazing things about this highlighter and I have to agree with what a lot of people are saying. For a liquid illuminator with pigment like the NYX Liquid Illuminator, $8 honestly isn't a bad price. Pros: – Cruelty-free – Amazing pigment – Doesn't dry with a tacky feeling – Applies equally great with your fingers or a brush – Can be layered to produce a blinding glow or just applied once for a more natural glow – Has varieties for different skin tones Cons: – Only available at Ulta or online – I wish there was more in the package. I feel like the bottle is only 1/4 full Overall, I would give this product a 8.5/10. I'm very happy with it and I'm most definitely going to be purchasing more in the future!

Just look at that beauty!

I purchased this about two weeks ago at Ulta, not knowing what the pigment payout was going to be. I’ve seen this product floating around on Pinterest, but I haven’t seen any people swear by the highlighter.

I tried the NYX Liquid Illuminator on my face the other day and I was happy with the glow it left me with! It definitely gave me more of a natural glow, but I know I could layer it and get more of a dramatic look. It was hot and humid on the day that I wore it (I forgot to take pictures!) and it stayed on my face all day!There are days where I want my highlight to be more natural looking and there are other days where I want to blind the world with my glow. I like this highlighter because it gave me more of a natural glow to my skin.

My only complaint is that I wasn’t certain what type of brush I should use to apply it. I ended up just using my fingers, because a fan brush wasn’t working out.



  • Buildable pigment
  • Doesn’t feel greasy on the face
  • Inexpensive


  • There’s not a whole lot in the bottle. The package makes it seem like there’s a whole lot
  • Doesn’t tell you what type of brush or technique you should use to apply the illuminator
