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.

First of all, another holy grail. Love how it is so compact and fits to go anywhere. The formula is super creamy but when it's applied to the skin, it's is not sticky or "wet" at all. You can blend it super easily so application is just perfect. This is perfect for everyone because the color has a balance of cool and warm under tones so it truly looks great on all skin tones. It's a nice pearly shade that gives a sheen without looking like you have glitter on your face. It's definitely more of a subtle natural glow but if worn under a powder highlight, you will be glowing for days. I usually don't go for cream highlighters, but this one I fell in love with. 10/10.

This is a great product. It's very easy to use since it's in a stick form. I usually blend it it will a beauty blender after applying it so it gives it an even more natural appearance. This is not the most intense illumination I've used but it works pretty well when I want something light and dewy. I will add double the mount where I want more of a glow. I would purchase this again only if I had a reason to justify the pricing.

I like how portable this is. You can make it intense or subtle - put it on under foundation or over it, or layer a powder highlight on top! It does get a little glittery when you blend it out, but I feel like I would work on any skin tone. I got this for free from influencer to try out!

I love the glow this product gives me, I really see my self purchasing this product when I run out. I recommend this.

Where has this been all my life?

This is the perfect tone for a wide array of skin tones. It has slightly silver/gold colors.

Not a glitter bomb at all - which makes it great for mature skin because it doesn't emphasize pores.

It can be opaque or sheer, depending on how you apply it. From the stick gives you more highlight, whereas dabbing your brush onto the stick, then your face is more sheer. Blends into the skin like a dream!

I love the color of this highlight, which is a neutral tone that has both gold and silver reflect to it.However, I found the formula to be a little chunky. If you spend time blending it out it can look nice, otherwise it might look a little harsh or glittery on your skin. Also, while the packaging is funky and interesting I wish it was a little less elongated to make it easy to apply to targeted areas of your face.

I was so excited to try out the Marc Jacobs Glistening Illuminator when my fellow Influenster friend passed it off to me. The coloring of the stick looks amazing against my skin-tone, however, I had a bit of an issue applying the product. The stick size is too large for my cheekbones and other smaller spaces that I wanted to highlight so I found myself applying with my fingers.

This is my all time favorite product. The pigment and creamyness I'd very amazing. The glow it gives me is also out of this world. This is my first and only highlighter which I received from Influenster for testing purposes and I love it. I don't think I will ever try any other highlighter when I can't afford this one.

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?
