Hey beautiful people! How are you all doing?

I know I have been quite missing from here, but the support you guys have given me is tremendous and I can’t thank you enough for this. I hope to be more consistent here.  You can follow me on Instagram to  know what’s happening in my life as I am more consistent there.

Today I am up with a new review and I am reviewing the Nyx Away We Glow strobing cream today. I have been using this for some time now and let’s just jump into the review.

My thoughts about the Nyx Away we glow strobing cream

thebeautymascot/nyx away we glow strobing cream

The Nyx Away we glow strobing cream comes in a squeeze tube packaging with a pump. Now, that’s very thoughtful of the brand. Has a soft, thick consistency. Available in two shades– Bright star (Gold pearls) and Glow-Tini (Pink pearls). I have Bright star and hence I am reviewing that.

The product has an off white color with gold sparkles. I had a doubt if it will give a white cast, but it just blends into your skin. I have a medium complexion and I think the shade Bright star just compliments my complexion so well.

The product blends so well into the skin. Now, you can use this alone for a beautiful sun-kissed look. It gives a beautiful glow to your skin, not greasy. Your skin feels and looks so soft. But this does not look very natural when used alone. I mean, it does look natural but if you look really close you can see the gold particles. But yes, that’s when someone comes close to you (and you don’t want that person to know you have something on your face :P) otherwise it’s fine.

You can also use this product under your foundation, also on top of your foundation. When used both ways it gives a very subtle highlight. You can also mix this with your foundation for a dewy makeup. When you use it on top of your foundation, make sure you blend it really well otherwise it may look a bit cakey. Claims to be moisturizing, which I don’t really think. But my combination skin didn’t feel dry nor oily.

You can also use this instead of a primer, it smooths out your skin, pores almost look blurred but not completely and preps your skin.


What I like:

  • Beautiful and practical packaging with a pump.
  • Can be used alone for a sun kissed glow or under or over the foundation.
  • Gives a beautiful glow to your face if applied all over the face.
  • Gives a subtle highlight if used to highlight.
  • Lightweight.

What I don’t like:

  • I think for a drugstore product, the price is a bit high. You can get Mac strobe cream, a bit more pricey but the quantity is also more. The  quality of mac one is better than this one.

The Nyw Away We Glow Strobe cream  is  a good one if you are looking for one. This often gets compared to Mac Strobe cream but I think Mac is a better option as the quality is great. The price for both are also almost similar. But the Nyx Away we glow strobe cream is a good one too and worth trying. I rate it 3.8/5.

Have you tried the Nyx Away We Glow Strobe cream?
