There's a bunch of these type illuminators available and NYX are throwing their tuppence-worth into the mix in the form of their new Born To Glow Liquid Illuminators. Wonderful at any time of year, but in particular during the summer, illuminators help to make your foundation more glowy (when mixed-in), or are great for highlighting specific points of the face (cheekbones... décolletage... cupids bow... shoulderblades... centre line of arms...)
|L -> R: #02 / Gleam, #01 / Sunbeam|
NYX have two shades, #01/Sunbeam and #02/Gleam. #01 is your silvery-toned palest-of-pale pink version, suited to paler and colder skintones, and #02 is your golden-peach-toned version, more suited to darker and warmer skintones.
Ingredients-wise, these are water- and silicone-based, they do also contain parabens, mica, titanium dioxide and/or iron oxide. Lots of reflective stuff going on there. Likely these are going to suit younger skins better, as they're very slightly sparkledy underneath the shimmer, these retail around the €9.49 mark for 18ml, which makes them a very affordable option, and - best of all - come in a nice simple squeezey tube, nice and usable and sanitary. Look here for more info if you're interested.
Courtesy of the lovely folks at NYX, I have one of each of these to give away to two lucky readers. All you've got to do is (1) like and share on Facebook and/or tweet on twitter AND comment below, letting me know if your preference is for the Sunbeam or the Gleam shade. As per usual, I'll let the competition run for a week and then draw two names out of a hat. Competition is open to all readers, anywhere in the world. Good luck, and thanks for reading as always!
