I got this from an Ipsy Glambag and I was a little scared by the colour I got. I got LIM02 GLEAM which is like a blush/rosy pink colour. I'm super pale so it was a little intimidating. However I applied a little to the back of my hand and applied it to my face as a highlighter just with a little powder high light brush and it was beautiful! It didn't clog my pores or feel sticky at all. I would really recommend you try it out - this darker colour worked beautifully as a highlighter even on me! I really like it!

I absolutely love this stuff. I've had my eye on it for sometime as I was looking for something that I could mix with my CC+ cream to give me that dewy glow. I've used elf's shimmer palette, which I do adore but is not suitable for mixing with anything. After reading plenty of reviews and watching YT videos, I went for it. At $6, I wasn't risking much. Needless to say, I was immediately hooked. The formula is lightweight and I can see how it can be a game changer when applied directly to the high points of the face. There aren't huge chunks of glitter in it, nor is the shimmer over the top - it just gives a beautiful glow to the skin. I'm very impressed. I am definitely going to keep this in my makeup arsenal and plan on purchasing this in Sunbeam, as I'm sure it's equally beautiful. Another success for NYX!

I purchased the golden/bronze one "gleam" because it best flatters my brown skin-tone. The color is simply beautiful and a little goes a long way. You can apply this directly to the bridge of the nose, cheekbone etc to highlight. What I've done is mixed this into my liquid foundation for an all over glow. This is shimmery rather than sparkly so the effects are subtle and beautiful, not over the top.great for strobing!

I'm reviewing the color "sunbeam"This is a product you DO NOT want to use by itself. It’s sparkly and I never read that you’re supposed to slather it on your face anyways. I mix a dab of this into my usual primer and it makes my entire face brightened and pretty. I really really like what it does as far as correcting darkness and sallow looking skin, so I use it everyday. It isn’t very colored, so no matter how fair you are you can wear it—just remember to use a drop mixed in with your primer—don’t go too heavy or you’ll see sparkly skin all day.

I love this product...better than my NARS orgasm illuminator in the tube! scroll down to cjenn's review...it is spot on! It isn't runny...it adheres flawlessly to your face....i use it on my cheeks a bit and all the places the sun would hit. I just did my makeup and realized something was missing....I hadn't put this on yet...voila...finished and pretty....and it's not expensive...loving most things NYX these days!....great inexpensive line!

I feel like I must've been using something completely different then what others reviewed. I saw very real silver glitter. I found it to not be flattering all. It wore nicely, wasn't greasy, but not that subtle glow I was looking for. There are too many nice highlighters out there to waste my time and money in this. Back to ulta it goes.

This product is a must-have!! In my makeup routine I mix this with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (my shade is Shell Beige) and apply the mixture all over my cheek area. This gives my face a healthy glow without too much glitter. The Double Wear has a high coverage and I don't need that everyday, so blending it with the illuminator is a perfect match for a natural look.-It looks great on photosI have sensitive skin and none of these products has ever made me breakout!

If I apply this really sheerly, it creates a nice highlight since it is not glittery at all. I apply this with a damp sponge and it helps sheer it out. Since I'm so pale, I can only use this in the summer time when I'm tanned. I don't think I would repurchase this however, as I've found easy to work with highlights

I am a makeup junkie and I absolutely love this product! Nyx slam dunked it with this one! It is perfect for the summer when you want a glow to your cheeks and complexion. I use this every single day on the top of my cheekbones and even bring it down to my cheeks. I feel like it goes hand and hand with milani baked blushes. You literally look so incredibly radiant with this product on and I love the look it gives. I have dry/combo skin so it doesn't make me look shiny but if you have oily skin i might wait on this one. The squeeze tube is super ideal and a little bit is perfect for giving you that summer glow you always dreamed of!!!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
