NYX Illuminator

I recently picked up NYX's Illuminator while at Ulta while they were have a NYX buy one get one 50% off sale.  I wasn't looking for a new highlighter, nor did I need one, but I was getting the NYX Concealer Stick and wanted to take advantage of the sale, and thought the Illuminator was just so beautiful that I couldn't pass it up.  

This Illuminator comes in 3 colors.  Narcissistic (IBB01) is a champagne color with gold sheen.  Chaotic (IBB02) is a dark pink with gold sheen. Magnetic (IBB03) is a peachy pink with gold sheen and glitter.  Since I already have a highlighter that I really like and haven't even hit pan on, I bought the pinkier of the 3, Chaotic, as it wasn't like anything I already had. 

In the pan, the color is a beautiful dark rosey peach with a subtle glimmery sheen.  It actually looks more like a blush than an illuminator, until you swatch it. Once swatched you can see a lot more of the peachy gold in the color.  On the skin, it looks so beautiful and looks different depending on your angle and light.  At one glance, it is a soft pink sheen, and at another it is a pigmented blush of color.  

The NYX Illuminator is gorgeous!  I can wear it with a full face of makeup with blush and bronzer, or with just some BB Cream to add color to my "no-make up, make-up".  It is definitely worth checking out!
