What’s the difference between this & the strobing born to glow that u all offer? If they r different how would u use them together? Currently I use the Illuminator to strobe so maybe instead add it to my tinted moisturizer & then strobe w/ the BTG strobe?

Hi. Can I use it as a bronzer or to add a little bit of glow to my face. If so, im very fair skin with cool undertones, which one is better for me to add some warmth? And where should I apply it? Thanks!!

Asked by: Dpgmd
Hi there! We appreciate your interest in our Born To Glow Illuminator! It can be blended with a cream bronzer for an additional touch of glow. You can also just use this all over the face as a primer before your foundation to illuminate your skin. We hope this is helpful!

Will the shade sunbeam appear pink or white on darker skin? 

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Lipshiz! Thank you for the interest in our "Sunbeam" Liquid Illuminator. This product is intended to add a subtle glow to the face, whether under your foundation or mixed with it. It does not add much color to the skin other than glow that will have everyone talking! We hope this helps.

Is this product non-acnic? Will it clog pores 

Asked by: Elizaa
Hi Elizaa! At this time, NYX Professional Makeup products do not claim to be non comedogenic. In the future if this changes, the package and artwork will be updated to reflect so. Thank you!

I am having issues with this separating immediately after I apply. I apply foundation, set my foundation with setting powder, then apply bronzer, blush, and lastly this highlighter on my cheekbones. Is the issue that it is liquid over setting powder?

Asked by: Nessa18
Hey Nessa18! Thank you for trying our Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator and letting us know what you thought about your results. Please know that we do recommend that you apply your liquid highlighter before your setting powder. This is because the liquid highlighter will tend to cling to the powder, causing a cakey or separated look, when applied over top of the powder. We hope that you give this order for application a try for a more flawless finish!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just meh Doesn’t do much for me but maybe I got too light of a color. There is nearly nothing in the tube

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Face 'glows' ever so softly! This product does just what it says, "Illuminates" your face and also, your chest area!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glow from within on a budget I love these creams. I bought two and will be returning for the other two shades. I love a glow from within seamless highlight to go with my natural good skin base. I haven’t tried it yet but I feel that you can use this as a primer under neath foundation and have a wonderful candlelit luminous finish to your makeup. I love them as highlighters as they can go head to head with more expensive cream highlights. I wish they would expand the shade range though as glossier highlighter concentrate in umber is the only cream highlight to go to a depth that people with skin darker than mind can appreciate and glossier price points are not accessible to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple product Love this product in pale pink pearl. It has the right amount of shimmer, and go without blush for a natural look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic! I mix this in with my BB cream for an all-over glow. It acts as a primer for the rest of my makeup, and leaves a subtle glow underneath that makes me seem dewy but not shiny. I have an oily T-zone, and this keeps me matte through the day. Again, dewy but not shiny, like magic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! I had been looking for a replacement for a liquid bronzer and stumbled across this quite by accident in my grocery/department store. It has shown to be perfect and the price is amazing! I am an older redhead with dry, sensitive skin and have had no issues with Born To Glow. I have been using the Pure Gold for over a year and love it! It's one of those items I stock up on so I will never run out! It's perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Glow-y I purchased “Born to Glow” from NYX a month ago and it’s fabulous! It’s super shimmery and leaves a fresh glow (just like it says) on my cheeks.
