Product Review -- NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder

As far as I'm concerned, there can never be enough highlighters in my collection.

I would glow to the high heavens all day, every day if possible so it helps to have plenty of options in my arsenal. 

Over the past year, I've become especially obsessed with duo-chrome highlighters. You know, the ones that look like a simple white, ivory, or beige in the pan but actually flash a cool color like lilac, pink, blue, or green in the light. 

I know they're not for everybody -- not everyone wants to rocks a highlighter that flashes green -- but I absolutely love them. I feel like it takes a simple everyday makeup look and makes it a little more exciting. 

So I was really excited to try the NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powders, which contain light-catching pearls that look different from every angle.
The powders come in small plastic compacts  that hold 6 grams and have a clear lid that allow you to see the product inside.

I purchased the powder in the shade Snow Rose, which is a white base that flashes pink and lilac.

The powder has a very smooth, finely milled so it blends well into the skin. That means it doesn't look like it's just sitting on top of the skin, which always makes a highlighter look a little too obvious. 

Snow Rose is a really pretty shade, and I think is a good entry color if you're just getting into duo-chrome highlighters. If you're not comfortable wearing it as a highlighter, it also doubles well as a blush topper for pink, rose, and lavender blushes.

Best of all, these highlighters are only $8 and come in four other shades. 

I definitely recommend picking one (or more!) up if you're looking for a really cool, unique highlighter.

You can find them on the NYX website, at Ulta, or anywhere you can purchase NYX products.
