Rose Quartz

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.

Moon Glow

NYX Moon Glow Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a pale white with neutral-to-cool undertones and a very fine pearl. This was one of the least “shimmery’” shades, though it still gave the skin a subtle sheen. It seemed to be more watery than most shades, which may have accounted for its sheerer coverage that was only buildable to medium coverage. It dried down quickly but still gave me enough time to work with the product and blend it out evenly. The highlighter lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me.

Moonbeam

NYX Moonbeam Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The finish had slightly larger sparkles to it, though it was still a more moderate highlighter once blended out on the skin. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two or three layers–it was best built up by letting each layer dry first. The consistency was blendable, spreadable, but thin and water-like so it felt cool on the skin initially. The highlighter wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Crystal Glare

NYX Crystal Glare Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and fine, pearly sheen. The shimmer read as a luminous glow than overt shimmer on the skin, even when layered. It had semi-sheer to opaque, buildable coverage (two to three layers for more opaque coverage, though!). The consistency was thin, water-like but dried down after I blended it onto the skin. This shade would be ideal for someone who wants subtle warmth and sheen without a metallic finish. While it could absolutely be mixed in with base products, like a primer or foundation, the wand makes it most practical for dabbing onto the face. The highlighter wore nicely for seven and a half hours on me.

Lavender Steel

NYX Lavender Steel Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder ($7.99 for 0.21 oz.) is an iridescent, lavender with a pale, grayish beige base. It looked more like a very light lavender applied to the skin that appeared deeper in color as I moved around. Mine arrived broken (it’s not an Ulta order unless at least one thing arrives broken), so it was a little harder to discern the true texture, but it seemed a touch drier overall to me and not quite as smooth. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that blended out with ease and sat well on the skin (no emphasis of pores!). On me, the highlighter started to fade after eight hours of wear.

Snow Rose

NYX Snow Rose Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder ($7.99 for 0.21 oz.) is a very light, cool-toned beige with pink-to-lavender pearl that gave it more of a soft, frosted sheen. This was one of the more interesting shades (though the type of duochrome it had is something we have seen before), as it can really alter whatever it is layered over. On its own, the whiteness of the base color is rather apparent, so on my skin tone, it would be best when layered over another blush or highlighter. For someone very fair, it could definitely be worn more on its own without looking like it lightened one’s skin. The consistency was smooth, firm but not stiff or difficult to get pigmentation out of. It applied evenly to the skin, blended out well, and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading on me.
