Rated 5 out of 5 by asha728 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 Shae M 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 Rebby90 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sassa7 from dont discontinue this plz The ingredients are very similar to the amazing cosm. illuminate primer and so is the texture to i like NYX better. I use it under my makeup as a primer. I have dull, dry skin, no texture (i hate silicone primers they break me out and make me oily) and this makes my skin feel tight and porcelain-like. Makeup applies like a dream on top. I dont mind the sparks& shimmer at all. Never breaks me out and lets my skin breathe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samantha Shead MUA from Thumbs up This illuminator is absolutely stunning and very affordable, which is an obvious plus. It does what the title says, illuminate. If you're looking for an afforable highlighter that gives you a "lit from within" glow, this is a good choice, but not if you're wanting to achieve a blinding effect. The two colors I got give the same amount of glow, just in different tones. Pure Gold, as you may guess, is a golden highlight, while Gleam is more pink/rose gold. What I really love about these is that it gets your skin glowing under makeup, over makeup, or by itself. Mixing some with your moisturizer bumps up the wattage significantly and looks great for all over the body. I even used it on my lips to see what would happen. It gave them a slight metallic look, but didn't last long at all. On the skin though, it lasted ALL DAY!

Rated 2 out of 5 by hibanofficial from Disappointed I got the Gleam color for my medium skin and it was so pink that I use it for blush instead of illuminator. The package was almost empty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debber1 from My favorite product -hands down I have been using born to glow liquid illuminator in "sunbeam" for a few years now as a highlighter and it really is the one product I can not do without. It has just the right amount of sparkle and it not too pink. It lasts, isn't cakey, is a great price, and you don't have to use a lot. I use it on my cheekbones, shoulders and anywhere you want a little sparkle. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Makeupbydess from Nice Highlight! I just bought this the other day and this product made me look like a glow queen. It does have glitter in it, so be cautious if you aren't into glitter.

Hi there! On the product you will see a container icon. Inside there will be a number followed by the letter "M," this shows how many months you can use the product after first opening it.

I know nothing about makeup I want to know how to use this product.Does it go on top of foundation? Does it replace contour and highlight makeup and you put it on the same areas? What shade would work for Med.brown AA skin tone? Thanks!
Hi there! The beauty of this formula is that it's totally multipurpose: You can apply it as a foundation base for a subtler glow. Pair it with your contouring faves for easy highlighting. Or wear it alone to strobe like a pro. Plus, everyone can rock these shades. It's all up to you! xoxo
