I love the color! It's my first time using a purple color and I have to say it's awesome. Gives just enough shine without looking greasy. A little difficult to blend but I might just have to use a different brush.

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

      I have the color "Chardonnay Shimmer", and it is perfect for light/medium skin tones! I have pretty large pores, so I don't like powder highlights, but this one is perfect. I am definitely going to buy more shades. It leaves a nice natural glow with one swipe, but it can be built up for the ultimate glow. It's beautiful!

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

      Provides a very pretty, natural glow. It's not "blinding", but is very pretty on the skin and is extremely wearable. I love the cream formula; it's very comfortable on the skin. If you wanted a brighter effect, you could use this as a base and layer a powder over it.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

          I'm in love. I literally went on Snapchat to show and rave to my friends and tell them to buy this product. There are 12 shades so there's something for everyone literally. There's even a shade darker than this one for those with dark skin so that's a BIG plus! Doesn't look ashy or greasy. Looks like a perfect glow. Great for a natural or glam look

              I bought this because I was looking for something convenient to carry around with me and also wanted to try the purple/violet look without spending too much. Well glides on beautifully with the perfect amount of sheen to it. I used it the other day for lip cheeks and eyes. Great product. I'm new to NYX

                I love this company already as they don't animal test and it's very price conscious so... I love this highlighter. I use it for multi purposes. Eyes cheeks lips and it's great for quick color on the go. It's one stick and you can take it with you and use it for all areas of the face! It's a wonderful product and well priced and most importantly not tested on poor animals for the sake of beauty for humans. ❤️❤️
