Moon Glow Lights

Makeup Revolution Moon Glow Lights Strobe Highlighter ($6.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a soft, pale pink with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. Of the four shades available in the range, this shade had the most natural of finishes. It could easily be used on its own, layered with any blush or bronzer, or even used to tamp down an over-the-top highlighter without dulling it. The consistency was soft, somewhat dusty and dry to the touch, but it applied well to bare skin and did not look dry on. It had medium, buildable coverage, as described, and lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

The Strobe Highlighter formula is described as a “light powder highlighter [that] gives a natural illumination.” It’s supposed to have buildable coverage, and it can also be used wet for a stronger finish. The texture reminds me of parchment–a little dry, almost “noisy” when I run my finger over it. There was a dryness present that I find common to more baked and mineralize kind of products, which is noticeable in the pan but rarely on the skin (where it counts the most!). The coverage was medium, buildable, and the dustiness in the texture made it very easy to blend and diffuse the powder across cheekbones for an even glow. The formula wore between seven and a seven and a half hours on me.

State of Flux

NYX State of Flux Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is an icy, light pink with cool undertones and a sparkling sheen. The finish had larger sparkles in it and less fine ones compared to most shades in the range, so if you aren’t a fan of sparkle, this might be one to skip. It had sheer to medium coverage (hard to get it to be opaque without piling on four to five layers of product, at which point, the product is too thick and flakes off). The consistency was blendable, lightweight, and thin with a more watery, cooler feel on the skin. It dried down and lasted for seven 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.

Ice Kiss

Makeup Revolution Ice Kiss Skin Kiss ($9.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a bright white gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It had chunkier shimmer and a very strong, metallic sheen on the skin. It had medium, buildable color coverage, though the texture was incredibly dense and thick that it took some trial and error to find the right brush to work with this product. It blended out without trouble, and the finish emphasized my pores slightly but did so less than I expected (based on how it swatched). When I tested it, the highlighter lasted for seven hours on me before breaking down.

The Skin Kiss formula is described as a “crushed pigment highlighter” that “adds a natural touch of illumination.” I feel like brands that give too little information often make it hard to know what to expect (or not expect). In the case of Skin Kiss, it’s an incredibly dense texture, almost so dense that it felt like a hybrid between powder and cream. It takes a heavy hand or a denser brush (like a blush brush or even a flat, foundation brush) to get product onto the brush. It’s also a more metallic, chunkier highlight that is more like boom! highlight! than a “natural touch.” With enough buffing and blending, the effect can be moderate to heavy but I’d never call it natural. The compact is also massive, so you’re getting plenty for your money, but it’s in that territory where it is more likely to be overkill for many.

Liquid Prism

NYX Liquid Prism Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a pale, whitish beige with iridescent pink to violet pearl. This shade was more like a duochrome, though the shift was subtle. The texture was lightweight, watery and thin but spreadable across the skin. It had sheer to medium coverage, which was buildable by applying a second layer after the first one had dried. Another way to build up coverage was to pat the color on, wait until almost dry, and then blend out the edges to maintain that initial opacity. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Gold Rush

NYX Gold Rush Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and flecks of gold pearl and sparkle. This shade was one of the most shimmery (and deepest in visible color) within the range. It worked more as a highlighting bronzer on my skin tone, and I suspect it would be a beautiful highlighter on medium and darker complexions. It had semi-sheer to opaque, buildable pigmentation. The texture was thin, watery, and cool to the touch, but it spread evenly across the skin and blended well. It dried down and yielded a soft, glowing finish with a few bits of sparkle. It wore nicely for eight hours on me.

Golden Hour

NYX Golden Hour Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, sunshine yellow with fine pearl. This was one of the less shimmery shades within the range, though it still offered a noticeable–but subtle–glow on the skin. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (to semi-opaque) and was best applied in layers for greater coverage. The highlighter had a watery, thin texture that spread well across the skin, felt cool initially, but dried down after a minute or so. It was easy to work, blend out, and lasted for almost eight hours on me.
