NYC Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator Review

Now that my Summer tan is fading I’m looking for something to boost my pale skin a little and I found the NYC Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in my stash from the August 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag.


What’s to love?

This light-weight Liquid Illuminator blends very well on my skin. I have the Gleam shade which gives me a nice all over Summer glow without being too overbearing. It’s got a bit of a peach color to it.

The swatch is pretty dark because I wanted to show the color out of the tube but once you blend it looks much lighter with just a hint of shimmer. This stuff really brightens my skin and I have no issue with irritation. I also feel like this product is more moisturizing than some illuminators.

The scent of this one is super light, not fragrance-free but very light and not unpleasant at all.

I would definitely buy this product for $7.50 and am interested in trying the Sunbeam shade which is a pale pink pearl.

My only issue is that I wish it was Made in the USA and not China.

  2. Looks really pretty! I just recently noticed that many of NYX products are made in China – pretty disappointing. 😦

  3. I really like mixing it into my foundation, gives a nice natural glow! 🙂
