Let me ask you something: what are your must-have makeup essentials? Is it lipstick/Gloss? Mascara? Bronzer? For me, it’s glowing, dewy skin. I just love how it just makes your whole face look flawless.
That’s why when Influencer asked me to review the Marc Jacob Glow Stick, I jumped at the chance. Before I start my review, I just want you to know, I did receive this product for free but the opinions stated are completely my own. Now with that said, let’s get into the review.
What is it?
Marc Jacobs Glow Stick is a portable cream illuminator that you can use anywhere on your face when you want to achieve that dewy look. Think of it as your personal spotlight. It comes in one universal shade (Spotlight 700) and looks great on every skin tone. You can glow a little because it’s sheer but when you want a dramatic glow it’s totally build-able just by layering and blending it into your skin. With its silver and gold pigments it’s perfect for both cool and warm tones.
Since it is a cream and not a powder, it blends beautifully into the skin and gives a lush, soft feel. It will never get sticky or cake which is important for skin to look young and wrinkle free.
Unlike other cream illuminators that come in a pot or compact this Glow stick comes in an applicator that you wouldn’t normal see. If you think about it, it’s genius to application and making sure are able to use every single bit of the product. It’s also a time saver since you can just swipe it on to the parts of your face you want, blend, and go. You can easily use your finger or the Marc Jacobs Shape Brush to blend, blend, blend.
Where should I apply it?
Knowing where exactly to put an illuminator can start out as a mystery. Your face shape can also help you determine where it should go but there are 6 standard places you should put it. Here is the list where to apply if from your forehead down to your chin:
- The middle of your forehead down toward you nose
- Under your brows
- Straight down the middle of your nose
- Above your cheek bones
- On your cupids bow
- In the middle of your chin
Love or Hate?
The first time I applied this product, I honestly didn’t think much of it. I’ve tried other cream highlighters and nothing stood out about this one. My mind completely changed when I came home that night from an event and saw how beautiful it still looked after wearing it for 6 hours. It was still fresh and just as glowing as when I left the house earlier that night. It didn’t cake or get flaky; which is huge because so many other face products do. There is no doubt I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good illuminator.Marc Jacobs Glow Stick makes you shine like a Queen! Click To Tweet
I can’t deny the price ($42.00) is a bit steep and out of many people’s price range. From what I can tell, it will last a very long time even used on a daily basis. They certainly did not skimp on how much product you receive.
So are you ready to glow at your next date night or night out with the girls? With the Marc Jacobs glow Stick you are more than ready to shine.
