Daytime Halo

NYX Daytime Halo Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a pop of gold with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to the skin. The texture was thin, watery but not difficult to apply or blend out. The yellowness of the color seemed to get lost on me when I tried it, but it may be more prominent on cooler and/or lighter complexions. The highlighter stayed on well 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.

Very soft, and dare I say; natural looking? I like this one quite a lot! Although I do feel pretty covered with having MAC Whisper Of Gilt, this looks to be a good, softer option.

Do you think the yellow would be too strong for my mega pale skin? I think it’s really pretty on you. I’m neutral toned but unlike most translucent people I lean warm. Not much, I’m a pretty solid neutral but definitely on the warm end. I guess if I buy it and don’t like it it’s not like I broke the bank 🙂
