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.

This highlighter gives a beautiful luminous glow, I like to rub my finger in it or rub the stick on my cheek bones to place it on the face, and then blend out with a beauty blender. It is a really flattering shade, I am very fair and it still highlights my face. It is nice and creamy and I'm so happy I made the purchase.
Tried this on a whim thinking it was likely all hype, no action. But I was wrong. This 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 saw rave reviews of this everywhere so i had to get my hands on it. the shade is stunning and it's so highly reflective that it gives a wet look to the skin. i tried applying this product in several ways (fingers, brush, sponge, under makeup, over, etc) and found that a lot of the time it would disrupt my foundation. i found that i could still make it work but for the price, i didn't find it to be worth the fight. i ended up returning it.
I would described the color has a cool-light pearly champagne gold and silver pigments that deposits a fine sheen. The color payoff of course will depend on how fair or deep your skin is because it is supposed to be a universal glow allowing both warm and cool complexions to use this. This gives a natural subtle glowy sheen that I find just perfect – not too sheer, not too sparkly and never looks greasy.
I'm in love with the glow stick. it is really easy to blend into your skin and you always get a perfect amount of golden shine on your skin. it lasts very long on your skin and at the end of the day it actually looks very nice and natural. I would recommend this to not only young but to older women as well to have fresh shiny younger looking skin!
I recently purchased this highlighter after reading so many good reviews on it and it turns out the reviews were totally right I'm in love with this product!! It gives you the perfect subtle or intense glow & is super easy to apply but I do recommend using it with a brush. It gives me the dewy but not oily look and although it's on the pricey side it's an amazing product!! I recommend
I really like this stick highlighter! I think it would work best on lighter skin tones though. I have medium skin tone and sometimes i feel like it looks too light in photos. It applies beautifully with a damp beauty blender. Others apply with their fingers and blend in with the beauty blender but i have not tried it this way yet. It's perfect for on the go!!
Love this highlighter! Very natural looking on the skin, blends in very easy and doesn't look patchy. Has a pearly colour that works great for lighter skin tones. Can be worn under powder for a more natural look, or on top for more intensity. Stays on the skin for a good amount of time. The packaging is great and it comes with a lot of product making it worth the price. Would repurchase!
This product is pretty expensive, but for me it is totally worth your money. I have really light skin so I wanted a highlighter that is not to over the top. The colour of it is perfect and looks pretty natural for a highlighter. It's nice and creamy and lasted me all day. I totally recommend trying it out.
So typically I would not spend $42 on any one piece of makeup but this was definitely worth it. It's absolutely beautiful and looks exactly like it does in ads. It's not oily or sticky on your face. It goes on smooths, stays on all day, and leaves your skin feeling soft.
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
