Here I glow, here I glow, here I glow again. Girls, what’s my weakness?! Highlighters! Okay then. I don’t know what sparked the inspiration to introduce Salt n Peppa’s song Shoop for NYX’s Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter glamour babes, but I’m going to roll with it. It’s kinda catchy, don’t you think?! Lol.
Anyhoodles, NYX’s Away We Glow Highlighters are new to their spring 2017 collection and they’re pretty awesome if I do say so myself. They sorta remind me of Benefits Liquid Highlighters, but better! They’re a heck of a lot cheaper ($6.99 at Ulta) and cruelty free. Score one for the bunnies! And let’s not for get your wallets too.
Available in nine Illuminating shades. These lightweight, creamy liquid highlighters have a light reflecting formula that gives skin a luminous glow with a soft shimmery finish.
That being said, I thought to add Liquid Prism and Moon Glow to my massive hoard. Oddly enough, I own not a single highlighter shade in silvery white. I felt this was the perfect opportunity to expand my shade selection in the highlighter department. Even though one can never have enough champagnes, pinks, peaches, and golds, in their collection lol.
Moon Glow-is a pale cool white with a pearly undertone.Liquid Prism- is a duo-chrome, holographic opal (whitish beige). I hope you can see it on my skin. This shade was hard to capture in the light.Both shades have a good amount of pigment if you build on them. The liquid highlighters apply quite sheerly creating a subdued beautiful glow that dries quickly. Each tube carries a rounded doe foot wand for easy placement when choosing which of your loveliest features you want to accentuate.
You will need a beauty tool to blend out your work. I find a blending sponge or stippling brush to work superbly. I think NYX needs to make their Away We Glow wand a little more narrow. I sometimes have difficulty getting it back into the tube afterwards, almost like it gets stuck mid-way.
These highlighters produce great color payoff especially with a setting spray. My dewy gorgeous complexion stayed put for 8 hours, and it looked beautiful all day long.
I’m definitely getting a few more shades. I’m loving the glow these give off. Looks like they’ll be more irresistible shimmery pinks, golds, and champagnes added to my multitude of highlighters. Told you one can never have enough.
Stay beautiful! Xo.
