Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

I really, really love this stuff, however i think i like i more on a fresh face rather than over top of foundation. When put over foundation it lifts the foundation off and doesnt tend to deposite it very well. On a clean face it looks better.

        I bought this product in hopes it was dark enough to use as a "contour stick." It wasn't dark enough but ended up being a bomb highlighter! It blends so well, I love the formula!

          This does not "illuminate" at all, it fails to do the exact thing to was marketed and labeled to do. Formula sucks! Seriously felt like I was putting a chilD's cheepie lipstick from a dollar store on my face!

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Illuminating Stick:

          I bought this in the color Chardonnay Shimmer. I don't like highlighter that's too flashy, and this has just the right amount of glow. However, when I tried to blend it, the product came right off and took my foundation with it (Estee Lauder Double Wear). I had strips of missing foundation instead of highlight. Unfortunately, I will be returning the product.
