I was so ready to love this product (drug store highlighters are not easy to find as we all know) but I just can't! I don't know what it is, maybe I got a defective one, but it is sooo hard to pick up any product. The only way I can get any colour (highlight that is) is to rub my finger really hard back and forth and then swatch it straight onto my face. Brushes don't pick up anything at all. Even when I do get a little glow on my cheak it only lasts for a very short time and does not show up very well on my very pale skin. I usually love NYX but this is a big thumbs down for me!!

This is one of the best highlighters for one key reason - its hard to find a matte one as most are filled with fine glitter.

Product wise, the powder is finely milled and goes on nicely on the face. Problem with picking up the product is that sometimes you tend to get more of the purple / pink bits and makes your skin looks a little too pink if you are trying to use this as a highlighter. you got to apply this carefully and a little goes a long way. there isn't any scent and the powder is pleasant enough.

Packaging wise, the bits cracked up really quickly. So the part that was supposed to be pink broke up and i had to threw that part away, it wasn't a huge problem since i did not want my highlighter to be too pink but i can imagine how that would be annoying.

overall, a good non-glitter product that is easy on the pocket.

Love this highlight! It's the most natural one I own, but it's definitely still noticeable on the skin. It's not sparkly, but it gives a healthy glowy sheen to my fair skin. I use it as my everyday highlighter.

Oh how I wanted to love this. Being as pale as I am, I'm yet to find a highlighter that actually... highlights, and doesn't just blend into my skin. This was the case with the NYX Mosaic Highlighter. It didn't do anything bad for me, it just did nothing at all. Sometimes I see this little guy staring at me from my makeup bag and give it another go to no avail.

Obviously this product has worked for a lot of other reviewers with less Casper-y skin tones, and I'm still madly in love with the NYX line in general. This one was just a fail for me personally.

An overlooked gem at the drugstore. This is a lovely, pearlescent highlighter that isn't shimmery or glittery. It has a subtle sheen and is very light in color, making it an excellent choice for light skin. The powder is also very smooth.

My complaints would be about the staying power (it isn't BAD, but it doesn't last all day like some of my other highlighters do) and the packaging: all the writing has rubbed off the lid, and the clear plastic is cracked, even though I haven't been at all hard on it.

If I remember correctly, I had to buy this online from Cherry Culture (back when they sold NYX), because it's not readily available in most of the stores that carry NYX. Still, I like it enough that I think it's worth tracking down online.

Love this highlighter. I use it over a well moisturized face after my makeup base is on and it puts a gentle light right where I need it. I have highlighters for day and night and this is my new go to for daytime.

really pretty highlighter which leans pink. its more glowy than glittery or shimmery. i wouldn't recommend this for warm skin tones but on cool or neutral skin it'd look beautiful. one of the best drugstore highlighters.

The perfect powder highlighter. Inexpensive at just $12 CAD. A great mosaic of shades to suit most skin tones. NO SPARKLE! That's a big one for me. having glitter all over your face is not only unnatural, but gives you the opposite effect of the intended purpose of a highlighter. You want to look naturally lit from within when the high points of your face catch the light, not covered in bits of sparkle. This product is so finely milled that it adds the perfect amount of glow. It's just so pretty! NOTE: THIS HIGHLIGHTER IS DIFFICULT TO FIND BECAUSE 1) IT'S OFTEN SOLD OUT AND 2) NYX ISN'T CARRIED AT EVERY DRUGSTORE. I would suggest getting a backup when purchasing just in case.
