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.

Love! Love! Loved Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick! It is a slightly shimmery finish which is def great! Does not leave a ridiculously amount of excess everywhere and is still long lasting. Does take sometime to blend perfectly but would still recommend this particular product to everyone!
I actually received this from influenster to try out and was so excited because it was full size and this product...let me tell you! Magical! You only need to barely touch your skin with the stick and you'll get this instant healthy gorgeous glow! It's very creamy and easy to blend it and it doesn't have glitter in it, it's just a beatific beautiful glow
This highlighter is deff a cult favorite. I received this in my vox box a couple of months ago and I'm so glad I did. I alternate between using a highlighting brush and a beauty blender to apply it over my foundation. I love how naturally it blends in with your skin tone.
Unreal!! Finally a highlighter without sparkle!! This looks amazing because it's just a glisten on your skin. Doesn't overdo it and make you look like you're wearing a cake face full of highlighter. Worth the money!! This is definitely a holy Grail and I already know I will be repurchasing when it runs out.
This one of the best cream highlighters i have ever tried out. The quality is top notch. It has a pigmented pearly gold-ish glossy lit from within healthy glow to it. It makes the skin look dewy and refreshed and hydrated. You don't have to worry about your skin looking artificially highlighted this glow stick will make your skin look naturally dewy.
I like this product and its formulation but ultimately it was a bit too heavy for me to use as an illuminator/highlighter. It's a high gloss type of application, and I don't love the application. Overall, I'd try again but definitely prefer other brands over this one (especially for the cost).
This highlighter is soooo amazing!! First, the packaging is super cute! Some people say it looks like a deodorant but really it's just super easy to take on the go. No more broken compacts while traveling!! Next, the formula is super creamy but when it's applied to the skin, it's is not sticky or "wet" at all. Also, the color is super buildable from a super natural glow with one swipe to a "blind you with my highlight" with a few swipes. But even with a few layers, it doesn't look or feel heavy. Lastly, this thing is the definition of blend able! 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. I definitely recommend it to everyone! I love it!!
While this highlighter will make you glisten to the gods, I'm giving it 3 stars because of the applicator. I searched this in Sephora and was blown away at the color payoff, but when I applied it to my skin it moved my makeup around - and I tried several different techniques! I was upset to return this, but I have no hard feelings.
Definitely the most intense highlighter I own at the moment! I use it to give myself a dewy glow to my skin. It doesn’t emphasize any texture because it’s a cream. I tend to have that problem with a lot of powder highlights. I like to use this underneath my foundation for a glow-from-within look. It’s also easy to apply over powder products.
MY NEW ALL TIME FAVORITE HIGHLIGHTER! this is the most gorgeous mix of gold and silver "shimmer" I've ever seen. It works perfect for my medium neutral skin. It's so easy to apply and blend. You can make it more natural or make it super super glowy and it never cakes up. This was my first Marc Jacobs product and now I'm addicted
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
