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 was so excited to try this out! I'm an avid makeup collector and user. This product is great, but I don't recommend it for facial highlighting if you have oily skin. However, it is AMAZING for shoulder and collar bone glow! Just swipe it onto the skin and blend it out with your fingers. Easy as pie! #marcglowstick #voxbox
I am so addicted to Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Illuminator!! It is super easy to apply, and leaves my skin with a youthful, dewy glow and doesn't leave my face feeling or looking oily!! This Illuminator can be applied from the tube or you can apply with a brush! I will continue to purchase and would recommend to everyone!
I definitely give this a higher rating for portability and on the go use. I am not a huge fan of the oily like texture. It does do a great job of highlighting although I prefer more precision than that of which the large stick provides. Again, great to throw in a beach bag or purse for touch ups or a natural glow on the go.
So I purchase the glow stick and I love it ...it's so easy to use and leaves my skin glowing ...I bought it at saphora my skin is fair so I glide it on and it is very noticeable I absolutely love this I would def buy this again
his stuff is incredible!!!! I have no need for any highlighters any longer. What I love about this the most is while it gives me a glow, its more of a natural glow. Not a glittery, fake highlight type look. It just makes your skin look super healthy and glow. Try it, you wont regret it! I won't be without it again. Ever.
I love this product for a beautiful, summery, body glow. I do also use this highlighter on my face but find that it does sometime shift my concealer and foundation. I find the best way to apply this product is with your fingers or a beauty sponge.
Meh is the only way to describe this, I like the concept and the smell is quite nice but overall it's pretty gimmicky and for the price...no thanks. I returned it after a few weeks of use, I felt like it left my skin feeling greasy and I couldn't wait to wash it off. I'd much rather use a powder highlight any day.
Can I start by saying the quality and packaging on this is super modern and outstanding. It does seem very pigmented when you swatch this creamy highlighter on your hands but in realty its the most soft natural highlighter I owned, it just looks like your very hydrated and shiny not so much shimmery. Great product!
This is the actual bomb. This stuff is crazy expensive, but really worth it if you come to think of it. It comes in a good amount and it's Marc Jacobs, what do you expect. This stuff is crazy pigmented and leaves you looking like the glistening goddess that you are! The shape kinda takes a while to get used to though.
I've literally tried them ALL, including multiple that I had custom made. Based on reviews I expected to like this one but def not top 3. This is the absolute best glow/illuminating product for people who want that Barbie-perfect sheen highlighting your faces perfect spots, on top of a glow/dewy face. I usually go for no-makeup-makeup look (which takes makeup of course) and this is #1. No other product is even a close 2nd.
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
