I'm old (60 in a month) and for the past decade my whole life has been about how to add some youthful glow to my washed-out NC25 complexion. I discovered highlighters and I can't live without...

I bought this ages ago as it swatches really nicely I bought the shade that comes in the pink packaging. However when on my face it didn’t really show up. I would try again because since then I...

I really like this to mix with foundation when my skin is clear but looking somewhat dull. I've also tried it mixed with primer and it works well that way too. It is very densely pigmented, so I...

At first swatch it was pretty but when applied to the face it's a glitter bomb. The glitter particles are chunky and cheap-looking and very very far from producing a realistic-looking glow. I could...

I have this in sunbeam and I love it! I use the pro brush that Sephora sends out when you get VIB rouge and that cuts down on all the chunky glitter and leaves you with this perfect glow that lasts...

My worst purchase from NYX, really cheap and shimmery looking ‘highlighter’ that will not last you even a couple of hours. The shade Sunbeam is really cute but I’m really disappointed in the...

I personally think that this highlighter is beautiful. Love the icy opalescent pink color. Love the hints of glitter actually. Love how it stays on. The key is to apply with a light hand and...

So for a while I have loved the idea of having an awesome highlighter for my face, to give me a glow as I enter summer with pale skin. I saw this product at Target after hearing a few people...
