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 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!

I love the packaging! The glow is amazing! At first, i thought it was too light for my skin. I am very tan. I realized using a brush did not work very well for me. It is pigmented and stays where you put it. I find it better blended into my skin with using a sponge/beauty blender. But it definitely makes you glo! I am excited to use this continously! It did stay on all day (about 5 hours) when I went out on a date with my husband.

I was very, very, very lucky and was selected to try this product for free by Influenster. This is the best illuminated I have ever used. And I have gone on to purchase this item after receiving my free product. It is so easy to apply and really helps to give me a complete "put together look." It is quite pricey but, if you ask me, worth every single cent because of the quality and the difference it makes in my face's appearance.

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 Marc Beauty and had been saving up for this for a while but once it got so hyped up by beauty bloggers, i couldn't wait any longer. i was really disappointed at how difficult it was to blend. no matter how i applied it i felt it took too much effort so i never reached for it. colourpop cream highlighters are cheaper and much more apparen't on my skin. i also feel this shade is too light for deeper skin tones. pretty bummed

I would only give 4 stars because this color is not for my skin tone. I'm on the medium tan side of the spectrum and this is too much of a pearly highlighter for my taste. Nevertheless, the product itself is beautiful and I know it would look amazing on paler skin tones. Maybe I'll use this as a base for my highlight and apply a golden highlight overtop. So glad to have received this from Influenster #MarcGlowStick @MarcBeauty

This highlighter is so freaking pigmented! Like holy crap. You need to be a little careful while applying it so that you don't get a big streak on your face. I really enjoy applying it either with my fingers or my beauty blender. I find it to be a lot easier than applying it directly from the tube. The only con is the packaging. I personally think it looks really cheap and for being a $42 highlight, I expect better quality.

Not gonna lie - this took me some trial and error! This is an illuminator that is not for the shy. I applied straight from the tube (MAJOR illumination - not for me!), with a brush (more subdued illumination), and with a sponge (most subdued).
The key for me was to apply with a light hand using a brush or sponge and blend, blend, blend. This method gives me a noticeable (but more natural) youthful glow and I love it!

I am not a person who typically goes out of the way to wear a highlighter, but I received this product in a vox box, and I have to say, I am impressed! It was easy to use, even for a highlighter newbie like me. You can apply with a light hand for day to day use, or amp it up and night. It is soft and creamy, and blends like a dream. I wore it to a wedding this weekend, and thought it was absolutely gorgeous!

I received this product complimentary of Influenster for testing purposes, but the following review is my own honest opinions of the Marc Glow Stick. The color looks great with my skin tone (light-medium) but I can see how this would look great on many skin tones, it's a beautiful white-gold. I love that it creates such a pretty glow without chunks of glitter. My favorite way to apply this is with my finger.

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?
