    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

    It glides on the skin so easy and it applies so easy. To blend it I just use my finger and do circles over and it's done in two seconds. Gives the perfect glow and to intensify it I just dab on the middle of where I applied it with some highlight powder and it sticks so good. It's my second time repurchasing this I love it!

      It basically just moves my foundation around into a giant clump no matter how I apply it. However, it is very pretty if you use it on bare skin.

          This product is really chalky and does not apply well. It does not give a good glow or shimmer like highlighter should!

          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
