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.

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.
