Rated 5 out of 5 by maria løuise from Good dupe These are good ''dupes'' (will explain further later on) for NudeStix and glossier cloudpaints. You have to moisturize beforehand (I use marula oil and farsali 24k) to get it to blend properly, and not use a matte foundation underneath. Blending it out with your finger will help the product move better when blending it out too! These products are similar shade wise to nude stix and cloudpaints by glossier. It's kinda the middleground betwene the two. Not too dewy, not too matte. I do like to set it with a powder though, just to make sure it doesn't sweat off throughout the day lol. I do find that it's easiest applied when rubbing the stick on your hand, then taking your fingers into the splotch off colour and then applying it to your face. I personally also find that it works better to put underneath foundation/bb cream so that it gives that extra natural sheen. I'm sorry that this is all over the place, but I do really enjoy these, you just have to apply it right! Extra; these look wonderful on the eyes too, and it's a little bit more forgiving than on the cheeks! (I forget which shades I use but it's the muted orange and deep peach shades mixed together))

Rated 3 out of 5 by Margojosephine from Doesn't blend properly I was hoping to use this as a blush since I prefer cream/liquid blushes over powders and loved the color of this one. I like having minimal and dewy makeup. But when I use this, it doesn't blend into my cheeks and skin at all and just paints my face brick red. It's impossible to soften out. I can't imagine anyone using this as a highlighter and it doesn't work as a blush well so. Sort of disappointed :( I wish it was creamier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dclass78 from I love this stick I started using the topaz tan about a month ago as a contouring stick on medium - dark skin. I rub the stick right under the cheek bone to create a soft golden brown contour line that I blend it out with a brush or beauty blender and it looks amazing. I then use one of the lighter illuminating sticks as a highlighter on the cheek bone. These sticks are perfect and you can't beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charnie from Bright Idea Illuminating Stick I purchased Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in the color Pinkie Dust and it is the perfect shade for my skin. It actually makes your skin glisten and again, I have had several compliments asking me what I use to make my skin look so radiant. I definitely would recommend this product to everyone. It truly is amazing and a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1950sLover from Sun-catching glitter I bought Chardonnay and Lavender Lust and love them! My friends weren't really noticing the effect I had the first couple times unless I was in direct sunlight but the amount of noticeable shimmer you want depends on how much you blend it. The Chardonnay was really close to my skin tone and therefore more subtle for me even unblended whereas the Lavender showed up much lighter against my skin. I thought they were lovely and made me feel like a fairy knowing I was sparkling. It could be considered oily but I got used to the feeling of it on my skin after just a few minutes. Getting it off proved to be a bit difficult but I guess that's the price you pay for things that stay on longer.

My makeup routine is liquid foundation, finishing powder-NYX's NoFilter, setting spray. So I'm not sure if I would highlight after foundation and put the powder over it, or skip powdering that area? How would I set this?
Hi Nessa! Highlight after applying your liquid foundation and set your look with Makeup Setting Spray.
