Miss Claire Born To Glow Illuminator Makeup Base (05 Shiny Beige) REVIEW | NYX BORN TO GLOW DUPE?| Best Illuminator Under Rs.500?| Where to Buy?

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing well! This post is HIGHLY requested, so I'm here sitting down, writing my experience about this illuminator by Miss Claire.




 PRICE: Rs.250-400 (I got mine for Rs.390)



INGREDIENTS:

HOW TO USE:
Wear alone or pair with makeup to instantly highlight and enhance wherever it is applied

PACKAGING:
The packaging is good. It is color coordinated with the illuminator and very easy to apply as well. This packaging is very travel friendly.




CONSISTENCY:
This highlighter has a very unique consistency. It is very moose-y in texture but at the same time it is light weight.

 SHADE:
Miss Claire Born To Glow Illuminator is available in six shades

I bought the shade 'Shiny Beige'. Its a silver highlighter with peachy pink undertone. It looks very pretty on fair Indian skin tone. It'll also look great on medium skin tones as it has peachy pink undertones.





MY REVIEW ON THIS PRODUCT:

To be honest, at first usage I did not like it a bit. It was chunky and very glittery. I was very dissapointed BUT when I tried it again and played with it more, I got to know the technique.
Always use it only as a highlighter and NOT as a base. It contains shimmers so it is very beautiful when worn alone as a highlighter to bring out your features.

This highlighter is available in 6 different shades which caters to different skin-tones. It is very build-able and has good pigmentation. You can achieve a blinding highlighter look and also 'highlight from within' kinda look. It all depends on your blending abilities.

Since this highlighter contains shimmers so you really need to use a pore filling primer because if you don't use a pore filling primer then the highlighter may look a bit patchy. Overall, we can't ask for a liquid highlighter like ABH for this price. So i'm very satisfied with is product at the price it is offered.

How I use it: I directly dot it on my cheek bones and then blend it with my fingers and use a beauty blender to take away extra chunky shimmers. In this way it gives a very beautiful sheen to your face.

I've heard and read a lot of negative reviews 'bout this particular illuminator but since now I know the right technique to apply it, I'm in love with this baby.

IS IT LONG LASTING? 
Yes it is. It lasted for about 5-6 hours WITHOUT any touch ups.

DO I RECOMMEND IT?
Yes absolutely.

THINGS I DON'T LIKE:
Don't use it as a base because it doesn't look good. It contains shimmers so it appears like you have sparkles everywhere. Secondly I don't like that it contains parabens.

PROS:

  • Color Coordinated Packaging
  • Affordable
  • Build-able from sheer to full coverage
  • Beautiful Shade
  • Good pigmentation
  • Available in different shades
  • Lasts for 5-6 hours without touch-ups

CONS:
