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.

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

I love this spotlight glow stick! I use this as a highlighter every single day for a natural highlight to my face. The shade is a pearly shade and the consistency is a little creamy and I absolutely love this

This cream highlighter stick is so amazingly beautiful. My mom received it in a past VoxBox and i've used, and I can say that it is great. It applies on the skin like a dream, blends well, and gives you the most beautiful glow to the high points of your face.

I received this illuminator in my Voxbox and now I'm obsessed! The gold and silver pearls are super refined and truly are perfect for any skin tone! Due to my golden skin tone, I often find highlighters with too much gold in it, makes it appear as if I put gold eyeshadow all over my face. This isn't the case with this illuminator! The formula is emollient without being greasy! It creates a perfect gleam that is natural without looking glittery or sparkly. I also love that the packaging is compact, light, and travel-friendly! I prefer to apply this with a small stippling brush. The product blends very easily and it last a long time.

I've used this highlight a couple times. It looks super pretty and is very natural looking on the skin. The application is the only odd part, like most cream highlights, you have to work with it a bit more then you would work with a powder highlight.

The Marc Jacobs beauty glow stick illuminator provides for the most blinding glow! Just apply the stick to an area you want to highlight and the product will give it a beautiful sheen. The packaging is beautiful and there's only a slight fragrance.

When I received the Marc Jacobs Glow Stick as a complementary Influenster tester I was hesitant. I adore highlighters but traditionally I've never been a fan of stick highlighters. Then tend to either have issues blending out that leave an awkward streak of unicorn highlight across your face, or they have an inconsistent pigmentation.

I'm happy to say this one has blown away my expectations. It's a nice, pure champagne tone which works perfectly with my cool tone skin. One swipe packs enough pigment I've used it as a shadow and eyeliner as well as just a highlight.

The tube has a fair amount of product (nearly half an ounce) so it's defiantly worth the price with how much usage you can get out of it.

This is a really subtle, wet looking highlight stick and is perfect for someone who is into natural, wet looking glowy skin. I have tried this with and without foundation and works just as well and makes you look like you're glowing from within.

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?
