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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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 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 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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best liquid illuminator for the price! I got this at ulta because they were having a buy one get one 1/2 off sale on nyx products and i really wanted to try a liquid illuminator! i'm an olive skin tone and got the gleam shade! i mixed this with my primer and it made my GLOW. it was beautiful, like that dewy look that is super popular these days. the only reason i am giving it 4 stars is because when i tried to make the glow a little more intense after i put on my bb cream, it would not blend out on my nose. it was fine on my cheeks, but i had to literally drag it on my nose so that i would not have a weird strobe streak that was clearly unblended lol. anyway, for the price, this product is amazing! I will continue to use over and over. and plus that it's vegan and cruelty free!! win win win

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this highlighter I usually wear powder highlight, but I tried this because I had a coupon for NYX at CVS. It's really nice to mix with foundation to give your whole face a little glow! It's not too much. I really like it a lot!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mehh I bought this about a month ago in the shade "Gleam". I was super excited to use it, but when I got to applying it to my face, the highlight would not blend unless I worked as quickly as possible. I noticed when I put it on my cheekbones and inner corners of my eyes that the glitter looked chunky and unnatural. However, It did look very good on my nose. I also noticed that when light hit my face on those high areas where the highlighter was, the glitter was really in your face. It looked less like a glowy higher and more like straight up glitter. I don't know, it was an okay product, but there are lots of better options for the same price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn’t Exencuate Texture I love this!! I rarely ever use liquid highlighter because of my skin type but I decided to give this a try last summer and I was surprised at how much I loved it. It’s great for a natural glow, but can be built up or even layered under a powder highlight to make it more blinding, I found that using a Wet n Wild powder highlight over this makes a very bright highlight

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hated it until I figured out how to use it I thought I could use this as just a subtle highlighter, but it would just take off my foundation so it made its way into the back of my drawer. Then I saw someone mix it with a foundation that was too light, and it gave her a beautiful glow, so I tried that. It was incredible. I was glowing all day, and it was beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Flattering My friend got me to try hers in the color "Gleam" a couple of months ago and loved it! Of course I had to get my own! I own the colors; Gleam and Sunbeam. I love them! But keep in mind, a little goes a LONG way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewy and fresh This illuminator is awesome for making your skin look dewy and fresh. I love the subtle highlight that it creates on my face. When paired with a good primer, blusher, and highlighter, this is an absolutely indispensible part of my daily beauty routine - but it is awesome when you want to do simple, light makeup. I'd definitely purchase this again and plan to do so in the near the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I bought this illuminator about 3weeks ago and i decided to try it out just yesterday. I used the shade GLEAM, mixed it with my foundation & i got a fantastic result. I will definately buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the golden tone I bought the pure gold because I liked the other color so well. I just either put a dab of the illuminator on a pump of my liquid foundation, then slightly mix them together with the end of my foundation brush, then I apply the mixture to my entire face with my foundation brush. It will also be helpful to darken some of my lighter colors that I use in the winter so that then they can be used on my darker and sunnier summer face if I wish!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bronze for dark skin girls! I am in the same skin tone range with Gabrielle Union, Serena Williams, etc and thus bronzer gives a beautiful glow. I like to add to my moisturizer for a NO Makeup look, with a little concealer and I am out the door. Love love love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smashing accent I purchased this at CVS and very pleased with myself. I always like a little glitter, but this is more of a glow. It makes my face shimmer a bit and look radiant. I bought another one "to go" when I'm at work or on the road. I adore this product.
