I recently got my hands on the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Multi-Use Face Stick, and my first impression was nothing short of delightful. The shade I received was "Vanilla Ice Cream," and it turned out to be a versatile beauty gem.
The color and finish of the product were fantastic. "Vanilla Ice Cream" was a soft and neutral shade, perfect for achieving a natural, everyday look. The finish had a subtle glow, giving my skin a healthy and radiant appearance without being overly shimmery.
One of the things that impressed me the most was how easily the Face Stick blended. The creamy texture glided effortlessly across my skin, allowing for seamless application. Whether I used my fingers or a makeup brush, the product blended like a dream, without leaving any streaks or patches.
I applied the Face Stick in various ways to test its versatility. On my eyelids, it worked beautifully as a base for eyeshadow, providing a smooth canvas for the colors to pop. I also dabbed it on my cheekbones to achieve a subtle highlight that caught the light in all the right ways. Additionally, I used it as a light blush, and the result was a soft, rosy flush that looked natural and flattering.
As for whether I'd purchase or recommend this product, the answer is a definite yes. The NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Multi-Use Face Stick is a fantastic addition to any makeup collection. Its user-friendly nature, along with its ability to multitask as an eyeshadow base, highlighter, and blush, makes it a go-to product for quick and effortless makeup looks. If you love a natural glow and value products that offer versatility and ease of use, this face stick is a must-try!
I received this from Influenster and NYX Cosmetics in exchange for my honest review :).
I got the shade Lemon Meringue and I'm pretty happy overall with the NYX Jumbo Multi-Use Face Stick 😃👍.
It's a good product that's you're able to use for lots different places to apply makeup (eyelids for eyeshadow, cheekbones for highlighter, etc). I really appreciate that very nice pearl colors in the formal since when I applied it to the face it was really shimmery ✨.
You're also able to apply this really smoothly thanks to how rich and soft the jumbo face stick is, so there's no need to press super hard on the face 😁.
My only criticism is that since it's meant to be *multi-use* maybe a sharper should be included 😅 (it is mentioned that there isn't a sharper though so it's not false advertisement 👍).
I mostly tried using this for my eyelids since I don't really apply any heavy makeup, but due to how thick the applicator was it was a bit difficult . It's not too big of an issue since I was at the end able to apply it but it's just something I wanted to point out in case anyone was interested 🤷🏻♀️.
It's also prone to melting a little bit so keep that in mind if you're planning to wear this anywhere really warm/hot 🌞.
In the end I do want to say that regardless of the issues I had this was a nice NYX product overall and I plan to continue using this so that I can add some extra smooth shimmer to my makeup 😌🤌✨✨✨

I absolutely love the color which was the buying factor. However, after trying it on my eyelids several times and even with a primer, it is so creamy that it causes creases. Which is a big NO-no in my makeup routine.

I can use it literally any where, when im in a hurry I just apply a little bit if bronzer on my eyelids and a lot of this face stick and end up looking like a really good eye look also I pop it on like highlighter and looks really subtle but at the same time stunning, really really love it😍

Use for eyes and cheeks if you're more warmed toned with a tan/darker skin tone! For me, this product was a little too warm. Product itself is smooth and gets the job done!

This is absolutely an amazing addition to my make up routine I love this highlighter is so easy to apply and I recommend everyone try it !!!!!!!!

So creamy and lightweight! Loved swatching it on my friends. I bought the blueberry (its purple or pink depending on your skin tone) and vanilla. It does smude really easily which is a good thing for blending but definitely have to avoid rubbing your eyws after applicantion. Cant wait to purchase more colors!

Went I bought this I thought NYX was releasing their eyeshadow stick in jumbo-size. I'd been using it as a sheer, shimmery eyeshadow before I found out it was a highlighter. I highly recommend it as an eyeshadow. I haven't used it as a highlighter because I bought the blueberry muffin color but I plan to keep using it for other things
Rebecca from Sherwood
This highlighter is really pretty. My only complaint is that it's easy to smear out the tube.
Ang from Michigan
It works okay for a nose or brow bone highlight, but it applys horribly on the eye. When i applied it on the eyelid it nearly rubbed completely off when tapped with my finger to blend it in. The little bit of product that does stay on the lid ends up creasing and leaving white lines on my eyelid. I even tried setting the lid w eyeshadow after applying it but it still creased. i was really excited to use it as an eyeshadow. disappointed.

Oh, I love this pen you can use it for different parts of your face. It's super pigmented and it lasts. I also love the packaging I really recommend it.

This is so pigmented I cannot described! Super smooth glides on easily . Perfect for the inner eyes and and nose highlight . She's shiny! I love it

I used this stick for my inner corners and it gave me a cute subtle glow. The color wasn't really my favorite which is why I stuck to only using it in my inner corners but I think if I were to try a different color I would love it. The formula is very creamy and goes on easily.

I loved the highlight given by the face stick! I used it more for my eyes because when applied to my cheek or nose for highlight, it looked kind of blotchy. I had to try different methods to blend. Looking forward to trying the other available colors. Overall, great product and I would recommend.

It was really good only thing is you have to get a sharpener to sharpen it to put it in the corner of the eyes or the nose after contour
But it's a 10/10 for me

It's good and I like the color

I wanted to like this product because I've been wanting a good white highlighter stick and this products formula would be great but it moves my makeup when I apply it. I typically use highlight on my inner corners of my eyes and my nose and this completely lifted my makeup after it had already been set with powder so it was ruined for the day.

This sticks are great for making your makeup more fun and creative. This looks good to highlight your inner eye or even to put over your lid or to give some sparkle down the bridge of your nose, lip, or cheeks!
FlyGurl from East Brunswick, NJ
I love these highlighter sticks, they're easy to use and very blendable. You can also use them as eyeshadow in a pinch! I purchased them in Coconut Cake, Apple Pie and Blueberry Muffin. All are highly pigmented and long-lasting! I really enjoy using and wearing them! I'm very happy with my purchase!
carley from Athens, GA
I bought this not expecting much, but it is GORGEOUS!! It is so easy to apply and blend and leaves such a beautiful glow. I HIGHLY recommend. (I bought the shades Coconut Cake & Vanilla Ice Cream)
jenellyp from undisclosed
Its a great multi use product that can be used for a highlight or an eyeshadow look. It has a nice shimmer that is not too glittery, and the color is really flattering
michellerzzz from undisclosed
I liked the easy application of the jumbo stick. The color was bold and stayed put which I liked. It's very diverse - I won't be using it as a highlighter but will use it for my water line
ataliapaez from undisclosed
One of the standout features is its incredible longevity. It lives up to its "SuperStay" name, staying put for hours on end. You won't need to worry about constant reapplication, which is a blessing for those with busy schedules.
