This isn't a "highlighter" it's an oilifier. Okay, that was a little cheesy, sorry. But this product really is a sticky, oily mess. I received this as a sample and at first I thought it was old? Based on the look and consistency of the product (and the description in another language) I had absolutely no idea what this product could be for? The first and only thing that came to mind is lipgloss. It feels like a gloss, looks like a gloss, and even smells like one. I was so surprised when I looked up the product and found out it is meant to be applied to your face!? Why would anyone want to look like lipgloss is on their face? It feels so sticky and oily. And it looks horrible! Even the pictures from Etude House's models looks horrible. It doesn't look dewy or nice at all. It looks like they need to blot their oily faces. Sorry for being so negative, but this stuff really is bad. Even my grandma with terribly dry skin tried this, and it still looked horrible. Do not waste your money!

This is for dewy skin. Glowing skin. For those who don't naturally look oily, they can use this either underneath makeup, or with a mixture of foundation/base to achieve this look.

Do not use this if you do not want this look! That goes against the purpose of the product.

I find that this product does not irritate my normally sensitive skin, and it does more than just Vaseline/Elizabeth arden 8 hour cream. I quite like using this, and in fact, I'm reaching the bottom of my first bottle.

Nymph Aura volumer 1 comes out as a peach looking non-shimmer liquid, and lasts longer on me than number 3 (the only other one I have tried.) I enjoy using both and alternating this with the Banilo Co base that does a similar effect.

To tone down glowiness, you can also set with powders on top. I have had no problems with soft application of powder on top of this gel.

This is an oil with a thick consistency and translucent white color that when used on its own or mixed with foundation, is supposed to provide “radiance" to the skin. Well, I have pretty oily/combo skin and putting such a thick oil to my face is just as necessary as putting more tanning lotion on Donald Triumph. This feels heavy and greasy on my skin, it is even heavier in consistency than the Lioele Blooming Shimmer Pearl Base.
If I had to choose between this and the Lioele one, I'd go for the Lioele one because it is thinner in consistency and lighter on the skin. The super finely milled shimmers on the Lioele one are actually flattering in the sunlight, whilst the Nymph Aura Volumer from Etude House just looks like plain canola oil on the face, like your sebaceous glands have gone wild.
Due to my oily skin I really dislike this. But for any woman out there that has really dry skin and feels like she needs a boost of hydration or dewey look on the skin, I think this mixed with foundation could have some good results in those cases. Hope this review is helpful.

I got a sample of this product a few weeks ago and today I tried it out for the second time. I have a normal skin today, because I used a moisturizer this morning.
I really liked the packaging of the sample, it is lavender-ish with a shiny water-drop picture in the front of it. I opened it and the liquid has a very light lavender color, but appears transparent on your face.
I put the liquid on my face and I immediately noticed that it felt oily. It smells good, but the texture is oily which made it very hard for my skin to absorb it and made my face shiny. It took longer than an hour to get into my skin, more or less, because my cheeks still feel oily.
Now, after 3 hours, I feel like I want to take a shower instead, because my face feels so greasy. I think that this may be a great product if you got really dry skin, but next to that, normal and oil skin type people should surely STAY AWAY from this product. I love the packaging, but the product itself really disappointed me.

Makes my skin look really nice and dewy when mixed with whatever I am wearing on my face (bb cream, foundation, etc). If you apply too much, it can make your skin feel very greasy and as if your makeup will never dry.

I tried to measure twice. For the first time, a tool I mixed with BB cream, but it I adding too much. Face become so glittering, as if stained with grease. I don't like it. The second time a drop of measures applied with fingertips on the skin, which already slapped with BB. I used the spot highlighter. The effect was interesting: Sensation gently glow. I think with practice you can get very nice and very easy to shiny healthy skin effect. Especially suitable for measures that have a strong disguises and makes the face very matte.

Pretty packaging as usual since it's from Etude, but then again once I applied it after mixing it with my BB, it felt really greasy and it made my face shiny - not in a nice way - more like in a greasy way. Didn't look flattering in pictures at all. Was so disappointed. :(

Although I have heavy yellow undertones I got this in 02 which is very pink. I did not find this to be a problem though because once it was all spread out the color is pretty sheer. Firstly, the smell of this product is very girly and strong so if you are sensitive to fragrance I would advice you to approach with cation.

If you look closely you can see faint shimmer in the product however it is not detectable once spread over the face. It literally just feels like a thin moisturizer which is very good since it is supposed to make your skin look glowy and moist.

I was hoping that it would last all day but I noticed a bit of fading after a few hours though it is minimal. One thing that I was afraid of was that I would look sweaty instead of glowy however this was not an issue! Just a nice flattering glow.

To use all over my face I mixed it with my Smashbox BB Cream at a 1:1 ratio. I would advice others to use a 1:2 ratio since it does sheer out the coverage of whatever BB Cream/Foundation you are using. As a finishing touch I also like to add a bit at the top of my cheeks for a bit of shine. It is a very good highlighter and face brightener.

It is a nice product in the fact that it
Makes your skin look radiant and dewy but my problem was that it made me break out like crazy and I stopped using it for a while to make sure it was my hormones and not the product. When I used it again, I broke out crazily! I check the ingredients and it's just an arrangement of oils! It's also bad for hot summers (I live in Southern California). It's nice for cold winters because your face doesn't feel dry. There's also this chemical smell to it..
