Marc Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator Review

Finally sharing my product review for the Marc Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator ($42.00) by Marc Jacobs Beauty. Life has been particularly busy this past month, but I’m thrilled to be sharing this beauty review with you guys!

You can purchase this highlighter at any Sephora location nearest you. As a disclaimer, this is a sponsored post. In exchange for an honest review, Marc Jacobs Beauty and Influenster sent me this full-sized product to try out for free. That being said, the feedback that I’m giving in this review is 100% my honest opinion.

Let’s get started!

Here’s what I received in my Marc Jacobs Beauty VoxBox:


First, I’ll cover the packaging of the glow stick itself:


This is actually one of the most practical highlighters I’ve ever tried, as it’s travel friendly, and perfect to take with me on-the-go for touch ups. Since I just use my fingers with this product as opposed to a brush, it’s so convenient and handy in all situations.

Now onto the actual product:


The consistency of this highlighter is creamy and pearly, which makes application a smooth and easy process. I love that it has a hint of shimmer, without being too overbearing. However, I’d recommend that you start off lightly. If you apply too much of a concentrated amount, it can look oily. In moderation though, it gives me the perfect glow on top of my cheek bones, cupid’s bow, and a little bit on my chin and forehead. It really helps brighten up my overall look, so I don’t look so dull and sleepy. (Especially as a sleep-deprived mama!)

Also, it stayed put throughout the day even though I was sweating more than usual thanks to this crazy Texas heat!

Here’s what it looks like on my bare skin:


I have fair to light skin with yellow undertones (as I’m Asian) but the highlighter works perfectly with my skin-tone. This is probably why I love this product the most, as I’ve tried other highly-rated highlighters from Benefit, MAC, Tarte, etc, but this one compliments my specific skin-tone the best.

Overall, I’d definitely purchase this product on my own in the future, especially if I’m traveling. The price point is steeper than its competitors, but I can see why. With the practical packaging, gorgeous application, and long-lasting wear, it’s easily become one of my favorite highlighters.

Thanks again to Marc Jacobs Beauty and Influenster for selecting me to test out this product!
