NYX Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter in Moonbeam, Moonglow, & State in Flux [Swatches + Review] by Victoria Huynh on Feb 3, 2017

9
NYX is stepping up their highlighter game with their Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter. I've gotten a chance to try the highlighter in Moonbeam, Moonglow, and State in Flux, and I was not disappointed! Read on for my full review:

Background/Claims
Product information from Ulta:

"Up, up and Away We Glow! Let yourself get carried away with NYX Cosmetics' gorgeous liquid highlighter. This light-reflecting formula comes in wonderfully creamy yet lightweight shades. Give 'em a glow for irresistible illumination plus a shimmery finish. From soft to intense, the lighting you love most is totally buildable. Just dab and blend to add luminosity to any look."

Ingredients:

Packaging/Design

Each liquid highlighter comes in a decent-sized plastic tube for its price. The wand is attached to the twist-to-open cap. The wand is alright in quality and gets the job done. It feels as if you have to push it a bit hard to get it back in or pull it to get it out though, but it helps you dab the extra product off so you won't have too much upon application.

A Closer Look:

Shades/Texture

The three colors offer nice luminosity and a lovely sheer shimmer. The formula was extremely lightweight, non-sticky, and had a comfortable, natural feeling to it.

In Action

As you can see, the highlighter was pretty poppin' when I combined Moonbeam and Moonglow together.

Scent
It has a very subtle lotion-like scent, but it's pretty much close to no fragrance.

Performance
Overall, these highlighters do the job. Moonglow was my favorite because it was a lot more visible. The other two were more on the subtle side, but still pretty pigmented for an everyday, natural glow. I liked how the highlighter was incredibly buildable and creamy. It was easy to apply, blend, and take off. The highlight lasted for most of my day, but if your day is extra long, a quick, almost effortless touch up may be needed.

I say it's definitely worth a try if you're looking for a lightweight liquid highlighter to add to your collection. You can't go wrong with Moonglow, especially for the price!
