      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

      I found this looked best when stippled on with a semi firm foundation or blending brush. When I tried direct application then blending out it wasn't subtle enough for me. I like makeup to look like me but better not like a mask on my face.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

        I bought this stick in Rose Petal Pop, thinking I could blend it out as a blush/highlight combo. WOW, it's colorful. I look very over-red with it on unless I put powder on over, which pretty effectively kills the shimmer. Maybe I just need more practice, but I've been blending it out a lot (again, sort of kills the shimmer) and it takes just the tiniest dab. If you're very fair like me, I'd try a lighter, less pigmented color. I was going for rosy and ended up in drunken-leprechaun-flush territory the first couple of times.
