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.

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.

I can’t wait to pick up one of these, they look so nice on the skin and not too expensive. Plus the doe foot applicator is a bonus for me. 😀

WOW!!!! This one looks fantastic as a shimmery bronzer on you! I very nearly bought this one last night (and the white shade that’s supposed to be prismatic?). But now, seeing that I do have EE Beachy, I guess I don’t actually need this one….but I still want it!
