      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

      I just can't find ANYTHING wrong with this product!! I'm pleasantly surprised that I can use a highlighter thats this superior for under $10.00. How did NYX do this??!! I bought Lavender Lust.
      The formula is silky. Not real silky but, silky enough, I'm not labeling it chalky or rough feeling. It glides on without feeling oily. Does not leave your skin feeling greasy either. I applied it down my nose and later in the day, I noticed the pores on my nose were totally invisable. I could see on each side of my nose, my pores but not at all down the center. It looked so obvious! You could buy a shade more nude, apply it all over your face before your foundation and THAT would look beautiful. Your pores wouldn't show at all. It seems to work like a pore minimizer.
      I bought it to highlight me cheekbones and brow bone, ect but, for a special occassion for an all over glow, I'm buying a nude champaign shade to wear under my foundation. The formula stayed on my face all day. Until I took my make up off. The long wear formula surprised me. The color in the stick is much lighter in person than the photo above portrays. Just thought I'd let you know, not to shy off some of the pretty colors that look so dark in the photo swatches above. I've only bought Lavender Lust and its much lighter in color than the swatch so, I'm betting all the other colors are lighter also.
      For the low price, I'll be stocking up on a few other colors. You could wear this formula well, even if you tend to be a little oily in your T zone because the formula isn't oily at all. Even if you tend to be dry, like me, the formula works great.

        Great for price. Pretty and golden but not too gold on my fair skin. Pleasantly surprised! I use as an eye shadow too for a natural glow if I need to run out the door and don't have time to do full makeup. Also it's a great base to add more highlighter on top of. But is pretty alone:)

                  This is an awesome highlighting stick! The formula is very creamy and soft but I like that it dries down and turns into a powder finish. I have the colors "Lavender Lust" and "Chardonnay Shimmer". They are both very pretty and look great on pale skin tones. I would highly recommend this product!!
