The bronze color, completely took off my foundation when I applied it. Doesn't blend in well. Leaves face all red afterwards. Not worth it

Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

I get so many compliments when I wear this! I have the color champagne and it is gorgeous for those days when I want to look glowy but not like too extra. It applies sooo easy and blends in seconds.

Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

I have never used anything like this. I hardly wear makeup but I wanted to add a little summer tan glow. This works great! I blended it with a makeup brush and for an amateur I did very well. The look is natural and my skin was glowing. It's an inexpensive great product. Definitely recommend

      By Rawhide

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

      Lavender Lust goes on as more of a cool silver than a soft purple. It's pretty, but more glittery than anticipated.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

        I bought this in rose petal pop and coralicious and use it as a cream blush. The color is gorgeous and melts into my skin, leaving me with a soft, natural-looking flush of color that lasts all day. It's a great inexpensive (and cruelty free!!) alternative to more expensive brands and personally I think it applies and wears just as well as some of the more expensive options out there. There is a bit of a trick to it though. If you're using a liquid foundation, I would recommend letting the foundation set and doing your eye makeup or something else for a few minutes before applying this product. A little goes a LONG way so I just apply a few dots along where I want it to be and then blend. I've tried it both before and after my setting powder and it definitely lasts longer when applied before any setting powder. That being said, I didn't notice any difference in pigmentation or application when applied over a powder. Highly recommend!

        I use this product primarily as a blush stick rather than to highlight or contour. I'm not crazy about the texture, although it blends out pretty well, and you don't need a lot.
