NYX Rose Quartz Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark reddish copper with warm undertones and gold and copper pearl. It had sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage–it looked a bit like a cheek stain on me, as it was translucent but provided some visible color (when layered). The texture was watery, thin, and spreadable across the skin, but it dried down and lasted for eight hours on me.

The Away We Glow formula is a liquid highlighter that has buildable coverage “from soft to intense.” The brand recommends to “dab and blend” on skin for “irresistible illumination.” There are nine shades available, and the shimmer varied from shade to shade: fine pearl to chunkier sparkle. The formula has a watery, thin feel from the tube, and I liked getting a bit on the back of my hand and then dabbing with fingertips or a stippling brush onto the cheeks and high planes of the face for highlighting. It did dry down after a minute or so, and the wear ranged from seven to eight hours.

There are products, like eyeshadow, that even though they’ll take awhile to finish in the most common size (0.05 oz.), I don’t know if they would be that practical if they were smaller as they might break more easily or simply be so small in physical size as to make it hard to use. For other things, like highlighters, blushes, and bronzers, I think that they are often far larger than they need to be (from both a functional and usable perspective).

Powder Highlighters

I’m a huge fan! There’s little not to love except for the ones that have less base color and lots of glitter/sparkle that doesn’t bind with the base powder. I don’t mind sparkly highlighters, but they still have to go on smoothly and not have a ton of travel!
