Product Description

What it is:
A portable cream stick highlighter in a first-ever universal shade for instant dewy payoff. 

What it does:
For the first time ever, Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator imparts a universal glow that flatters all skintones. The sheer cream luminizer gives skin an unparalleled, mist-like radiance that results from the balanced ratio of pearly gold and silver pigments—allowing both warm and cool complexions to beam with covetable, youthful light. Unlike powder luminizers and highlighters, this fresh-looking cream fuses with the complexion for a healthy-looking sheen. To make it even creamier and more touchable than any other cream luminizer, it undergoes a unique process in the lab for its irresistible, silky-soft feeling that never feels wet or sticky. The oval shape of the stick applicator is designed for impeccable one-swipe coverage, fitting perfectly at the tops of cheekbones. The palm-shaped case and roll-up dial are travel-ready, so that you can say goodbye to cracked powder compacts. Glow Stick glides on smoothly and effortlessly for the right dose of dewiness anytime, anywhere. Consider it your portable spotlight. 

What else you need to know:
Inspired by the fresh, glowy look created for a Marc Jacobs runway show—designed to evoke youthful radiance at an all-night dance party—Marc recreates this glistening sheen with portable, easy-to-use Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator. For best results, apply it with The Shape Contour Brush (sold separately), blending it into the high parts of the cheekbones, the temples, the bridge of the nose, the Cupid’s bow, and at the chin. You can also apply it directly to skin, blending with The Shape Contour Brush or your fingers. Or, apply and blend with fingers where desired for a natural, radiant look.

By far my favorite highlight! It's so easy to use. It just glides in and I use my fingers to rub it into my skin. It's great for all skin types, anyone can use it. It has a great pigmentation to that gives you that great shine you are looking for in a highlight. 100% recommend

I've tried a few cream highlighters and this one is up in my top three favorites. I like that it shows up on my super pale skin without giving a weird cast (like yellow or orange) and I like that it is super blendable and easy to buff out.

Pro Tip: use KVD's Thundercrush eyeshadow on top of it to make the highlight pop that much more!

Pros: travel-friendly, easy to blend, safe for sensitive skin, and gives a natural glow on MOST skin types.

Cons: It may look cakey if you apply it over powder and can pull up any foundation underneath if you're not careful. The cost is a bit high, but keep in mind that you are paying for both the product and the Marc Jacobs name. And lastly, it may not behave as well on top of folks with super oily faces.

I love the portability of this product as well as the look. I use it to highlight my cheeks, inner corner of eyes and brow bone. I like that it is a cream formula because I set it with a highlighting powder

I was super surprised at this product. I thought it was going to be like white cream glitter on my skin but when you use your fingers or a brush its a beautiful golden shade that is universal for everyone.

I really like this highlighter the color comes out amazing it has a pearl undertone and it's very pigmented. My only complaint is the consistency it's really hard to apply because it's more like a cream instead of a powder or a liquid so sometimes I have trouble blending it in.

I received this in a previous Voxbox. For my medium tan complexion, it worked great for highlighting my nose and chin but not my cheekbones. It made my cheeks look sort of "dusty". I applied this with my finger. It tugs when I try to roll it on. Overall, great creamy consistency.

I love the packaging for this, it is adorable and slides up like a deodorant. There is pretty much no scent (very light). I love how this makes you look like you are naturally glowing from the inside out. It does not sit on the skin with glitter. It can go from a subtle glow to a stronger highlight. It also does not make my deeper complexion look ashy/powdery. I am acne prone, and this did not break me out, or irritate my skin. Cons: If you already have combo/oily skin, I would be careful about how much I apply for the day, and where you apply. How I like to use it: It is recommended to use a synthetic brush, but for the "youthful glow" I like, I apply it a little at a time with my fingers. ^_^ #MarcGlowStick #Contest

Anyone that has this, is it easily blendable? Or does it just sit on top?

I've heard good things about Marc jacobs make up, I sampled the foundation and absolutely loved it. Is this highlighter as good as the rest of the make up? Is it pigmented?
