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 have tried a few liquid and highlight sticking in the past so when this little stick came in the mail I can't say I wasn't a little hesitant. After using it I was pleasantly surprised at how easily it went on over makeup and how it is a real neutral between cool and warm toned even with it's very light appearance. You do get a lot of product the only things I worry about is it not drying up before I use it all. Love the look though!
Perfect for a beautiful dewy glow! I swatched this on my hand in Sephora and instantly knew I had to have it. I had a hard time with it at first when I applied it straight from the stick over my foundation as it wiped away the foundation underneath it and made it smudge. I then began applying it either with a brush/sponge or with my fingers and I love it. It does take awhile to blend out, and it's not super long lasting, but other than that I don't really have any complaints about this product. It looks gorgeous alone or with powder on top.
Can't get over this product. So many good things. I love it everytime I use it. Fairly expensive however. Be ready to spend some cash when shopping Marc jacobs products
I got this from influenster for testing purposes I got excited because I'm a highlighter nut ! this is like a silver metallic shimmer highlighter very pretty it does tend to rub off so I spray , setting spray on my brush for it to last me hours there's no smell to it so that's a plus the more you apply on the brighter it gets I get a beautiful glow with one stroke
Now we are talking about the good stuff... the REALLY good stuff. After being disappointed in multiple illuminating-type products, the Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator is perfect. It takes a little bit to get used to the shape, but once you do, the magic happens! It is a soft shimmer that blends so nicely. I have red tones to my skin and it illuminated correctly as not to seem overdone or too understated. It is the Goldy Locks (just right) standard for highlighting. I would highly recommend this product.
What a product! It's a one of a kind, never seen before carry around highlighter. It's good for on the go when you're in a hurry just grab it and apply it in the car.
This is less blinding on the face and looks more wet. I think it is great for no makeup makeup days. Looks great for more natural days to give the skin a healthy Glow
My favorite highlighter this year! Because I am into a more natural, dewy, healthy skin look, rather than anything really obviously highlighted, this is perfect for me. Saying that, you can really build this up if you want a more dramatic look for a night out. If you set this with a powder highlight, and I would use BECCA’s Moonstone(too shimmery for me for my daily look) then this would take everything to strobe dimensions. To get that uber-glow, I find that it is definitely about layering a powder product on top of a cream.
This is the best highlighter I have ever tried! It's really long lasting and goes on perfect it's almost like a Pearl color and goes good with any skin tone! It's very easy to put on and blend and always buying more of this stuff!!!!
I didn't know how to use it at first! It's a beautiful shade if you want that BAM glow. It looks beautiful over and under foundation. It recommends using a brush to apply but I prefer using clean fingers to apply. Make sure to blend it or else it'll look like the brightest zebra stripe you've ever seen in your life. I like pairing this with baked blushes with illuminating ingredients to marry the two together on the cheek. I love using Milani baked blush in Corallina :) put them together and you'll faint, I warned you!
Q & A
Anyone that has this, is it easily blendable? Or does it just sit on top?
I'm looking for a really good highlighter. Not sure whether or not buy the MJ highlighter?
I usually use MAC make up but I'm looking to update my make up products, does anyone suggest this brand and are they worth it?
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?
Works the price? I wanis try
