Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the shimmer Great shimmer! Subtle enough so you don’t over due it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I bought this to try out, what great stick wear alone or with a light blush over. Last a long time. Now I need one in each color. Should produce the stick and blush to match in a set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blinding! this highlighter is amazing, sometimes the highlighter takes off some foundation under it but if you don't press too hard you'll be good. I have the lavender lust shade and it looks so shiny, I've even put it on my eyes for a shimmery look...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I am so glad I bought this Illuminating stick, it has become my favorite product! I got the CHARDONNAY SHIMMER and wear it almost everyday. It goes on smooth, very easy to use and it gives you just the perfect glow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shiny I got this product in the shade Chardonnay Shimmer and it is a great highlight stick. The color and shine it emits is the perfect amount for my skin tone. The only problem is that when you apply the stick it pulls on your foundation a little and you have to blend it out a little, but that’s a given for highlight sticks. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Fave I keep 5 products on me at all times. My brow pencil, lipstick, eyeliner, mascara and this. It. Is. The. Best. I have 2 colors, pearl pink lace and sun kissed crush. I just swipe it onto my cheek bones, nose bridge, Cupid’s bow and all across my lids. I look like a shimmery princess tbh. It’s great for a subtle glow and for layering. Comes on like a dream and has lasted me over a year without any signs of running out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from y'all kk so usually my highlight is champagne pop and being a girl with medium to dark skin, it's a little ashy unless you REEEAALLLLYYYY seamlessly blend it out ( tbh who has the time) but man, i have this in maui suntan and i think i've found my true love. It's so natural and just melts to give you a goddess like glow (which earned me lots of compliments) got this for a couple of friends. Time to get them all hooked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice natural glow I really like this for a natural look! It makes your skin look dewy while staying matte and non oily. It glides on sooo smoothly, and blends out nicely! It can be used on a bare face as well as over foundation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that crazy about it. Maybe I'm not using it correctly but I haven't been wowed by this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright little lift! I love the little lift this brightener gives to my dull winter skin! It applies easily and has just enough illumination to perk up my look when I really want to look better... perhaps a little more youthful and awake!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't Blend Well It sorta feels like I'm putting a great color lipstick on my skin. Doesn't blend well, sorta sticky. But it's a GREAT color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful! I love the color on this! It adds beautiful color to my face, yet looks natural and radiant. I also like that it's easy to apply and blend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Illumination! I added this item to my shopping cart last minute... boy am I glad that I did. I have used this stick every day since it came out of the box. If you haven't tried contouring/highlighting yet, you are missing out. The Bright Idea Illuminating formula is creamy and blendable, and comes in a tube for easy application. Smooths in easy with fingertips or sponge. Gives you that gorgeous, healthy glow. I like it along my forehead, jawline, and of course my cheekbones. This little guy has become a staple of my makeup bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pretty and blendable I got this in one of my packages unexpectedly-I guess there was a promo if you spent so much... I was pleasantly surprised- it's a great color and it's really easy to blend. Really does give a sun kissed glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun multi use item It makes a nice blusher highlighter combo and could be used as bronzer by some skin tones

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasts all day! I bought this stick in Chardonnay Shimmer and then I will set it with a powder highlight and y'all it lasts all day long!! the pigment and color payoff is wonderfulllllll
Date published: 2017-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy&Effortless I got this as a free gift for one of their promos. I really like this product for it's easy hi-lite. The stick is a nice quick way to add a lil color quickly. No brushes needed, a few swipes and your on your way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will change your makeup game I got this as a promotion at the Nyx store and the women helping me picked out the best color and it is a makeup game changer!! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous color! This Illuminating Stick is awesome! I love how chubby and easy it is to use. The color is just gorgeous. It gives such a beautiful glow. I even swipe some on my lids to match. Did I mention it's awesome?
Date published: 2017-08-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creamy, easy to apply I got this as a free gift in an order. I'm not sure if I had the option to select the shade I wanted because it just would automatically pop up in my cart. Anyways, the shade is quite orange and noticeable if I applied it directly with the stick. So I just blended with a sponge and it gave such a pretty, bronzed glow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't see anything I have no idea if I'm using this wrong or what but I tried to use it as kind of a blush replacement because I have very pale skin and most blushes look obnoxious for me...but it was just TOO sheer. I can barely see it unless I just put it on completely bare skin - which defeats the purpose since I want to wear it with the rest of my makeup. Maybe it looks better in darker colors but the lavender lust just didn't work at all.
Date published: 2017-08-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's okay it's very light. i usually like my highlight to be very bright and blinding. so i use this as eyeshadow instead. it does go on very smooth though
Date published: 2017-08-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful-- glossy & shimmery highlighter! I love this highlighter stick. I got the lavender shade, and its beautiful on my pale skin! You can wear a thin layer for a natural look, or build it up for a more intense look. I've found that it works great on bare skin, over foundation, *and* even over powder (I use the NYX HD pressed translucent powder). In my review photo, I have almost a full face of NYX products that I adore! I'm wearing the Gotcha Covered Concealer, this Bright Idea highlighter stick, 2 blushes from the Sweet Cheeks blush palette, the HD pressed translucent setting powder, Epic Ink Liquid Liner, and the Brow powder kits! This highlighter is a new favorite for me, and I love SO many of NYX's other products :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love them!!!! I bought lavender and chardonnay and i seriously use them everyday. They are so cute and not too sparkly. I wouldnt reccomend the darker colors unless you are looking for blush, but the light highliters are amazing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adult highlighter ! Unlike many other highlighters this one gives you the pop you need without the glitter! I call it adult highlighter bc I wear it to work and I still look professional!
Date published: 2017-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I got pinky dust & coralicious. Both are great blushes to use of you don't want to use powder. I like these because with one swipe and a blend you have a natural glow!! Thanks nyx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy! I ran out of my Trestique highlighting stick which costs $20+. I was looking for something more affordable and tried this illuminating stick. I must say it's even better and so happy I found something more affordable without lacking in quality.

What is the pinkie dust used for blush? Or highlighter?

Asked by: Summercamp
Hi Summercamp! Our Bright Idea Illuminating Stick can be used for blush and a highlight. If you are looking for a luminous rosy glow, we would recommend using the product as a blush. If you prefer a matte blush we would recommend checking out our High Definition Blush.

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?

Asked by: nessa0427
Hi Nessa! Highlight after applying your liquid foundation and set your look with Makeup Setting Spray.
