Happy Tuesday! 🙂
I’m bringing you a whole lot of Marc Jacobs today!!
By now you know that I am all about that affordable makeup life, but like any girl, when given the opportunity to try luxury products, I always jump to do so! I recently blogged about how I’ve been loving highlighter, so when Influenster wanted to send me the Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator, I could not pass it up! I can’t lie, when I initially saw this product I thought it was a fabulous/shimmering/travel sized deodorant. Call me crazy, but the packaging could not resemble a stick of deodorant any more if it tried. Not to mention, it is pretty fragrant for face makeup! But I digress. 🙂
While this would make a fancy antiperspirant, it makes for a much more impressive highlighter. The pearly gold + silver pigments claim to make your complexion beam with covetable youthful light! You simply sweep a soft synthetic bristled brush or a makeup sponge across the glow stick + lightly apply it to the high points of your face; your forehead, the bridge of your nose, the tips of your cheekbones, your cupids bow, and along the décolletage…
Two thumbs up! This highlighter was super simple to apply and looked absolutely gorgeous on. I was concerned about applying it over my makeup in fear that it’d remove my foundation or bronzer, but I was pleasantly surprised when everything remained intact. The unique formula goes on smoothly, evenly, and lasted on my skin far longer than any highlighting powder I’ve ever used. The shimmer is incredibly pigmented… if you think it looks good indoors, wait until you go outside!
Overall, I was certainly impressed! Retailing at $42 I find it to be a little steep, BUT it’s comparable in price to most other high end + popular highlighters on the market. On the bright side [no pun intended], I think that the quality is unparalleled + the product itself will definitely last you for quite a while. I love that it’s not your traditional pressed powder highlight – I break those suckers far too easily. The odds of me destroying this product are low, which is a win in itself lol.
If you’re into highlighter + like to put your dollars towards high quality makeup, I’d absolutely recommend you try! 🙂 You can order online by clicking here!
