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.

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.

This is the one I very nearly bought on Wednesday night at Ulta! And now that I can see that this shade can be done sheer enough for a medium skintone, I think I will get this one after all. Or I may just wait on that icy CoverFX Halo I saw you wearing in a look!

Halo is pretty nifty, but if you have anything that’s like a bluish white in your stash, you may be covered!
