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.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator
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've been going back and forth about this product because I already have so many highlighters. I'm so glad I bought this one though! It's so flattering and versatile. I'm not into strobing, but this can be built up to a high shine highlight. It also works perfectly as a fresh glow when applied with a lighter hand. My recommendation is to apply it with a stippling brush or to use your fingers to dab and blend. I wouldn't use it straight from the tube over foundation. The color reminds me of the RMS Living Luminizer, but the texture is different. This also comes with a ton of product compared to other highlighters, and it's only $42 at Sephora!
I had no clue what to expect from this product - I've never used anything like it. The application was easy enough (it's just a stick that you rub on your upper cheekbones), but I had issues blending it. The formula is very tacky, which makes it difficult to blend with a brush. This left me to use my fingers - something I'd rather not do, but oh well. The highlight that was left was nice. Kind of glittery, which isn't my style as I prefer a glow, but it was pretty nonetheless.
This cream highlight is absolutely stunning! It's a shimmery, dewy finish. Not glittery. I think it's great for all skin types. I have dry skin and it works great for me. It lasts all day on my skin and still looks flawless. Definitely would buy again but I think this will last for awhile because it's a good amount of of product. You can apply with your finger, a brush, or just right from the stick. Highly recommend if you like dewy highlighters, it's seriously stunning!
At first, I wasn't sure if I would totally love this product but my friend convinced me I had to try it. I absolutely love this glow stick because it provides the most fresh and dewy glow that makes you just look healthy. I apply with my fingers and then go in and rub my damp beauty blender on the stick and apply to the areas I want to highlight. It works so well and I feel like I look super healthy. Perfect for that natural, fresh healthy skin look.
The highlighter is beautiful, it is not the most pigmented highlighter but gives a striking natural glow. The packing is also very nice-looking, however the shape of the highlighter is a little annoying when applicated directly to the face. It is Therefore a necessity to use a brush, or apply the product with your finger for precision. All and all the Marc Jacobs glow stick highlighter is a beautiful highlighter for the very natural look in a slightly annoying packaging.
This is insanely easy to use, goes on easily, and is really fool proof. It blends well and can also be worn over makeup or alone and looks subtle or dramatic as you build it up. My only qualm is that it can look patchy if you use it with the wrong foundation, and it's definitely a trial and error situation.
I received this product in a vox box, it's amazing! I keep it in my make up bag when I travel or we'd a touch up. I love it and I think it will last for awhile! I use it weekly and barely noticed a dent in it yet! So don't let the price intimidate you. It goes on very smooth, provides a very natural glow with a light application.
I bought this because I've never tried a Marc Jacobs highlighter so I was intrigued. This is one of my absolute favorite highlighters! It blends so well and it really does work on every skin tone! It gives you such a beautiful, dewy look with so little effort! I even use it on my bare face to give me a little something extra when I have no makeup on. I will buy this product over and over again even though it is a little pricey
I really do like Marc Jacobs Beauty glow stick illuminator I received it through influenster for testing purposes only I really liked it it is on the higher end price range so if you looking for some something I would recommend this but at the same time there are others out there for cheaper price
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?
