Review: Marc Jacobs Glow Stick


Let's start with the aesthetics of this highlighter product...it looks like a deodorant. 




Yes it is durable and easy to use but for $42.00 I expected more than a plastic casing that mirrored my $4.99 antiperspirant I find in the drugstore aisle. There are so many better ways this product could've been packaged than in this cheap twist up canister, so I'm definitely disappointed that Marc Jacobs would put his name on something that looked so, sorry to be harsh, cheap. 

That being said, what matters is on the inside (but not really when you're paying $42 for something) so let's delve into the product itself. The highlighter is a stark white iridescent color so I was a bit scared it would come off like a white skunk stripe on my face but I was pleasantly surprised by how the product melted into the skin to give off a natural sheen rather than a colored glitter.  The product wore all day and I didn't have to touch up. I even got compliments on how glowy my skin looked.

To apply, I dabbed a bit of the highlight onto my cheekbones and nose bridge, as well as my eyelids for a shimmer and was pleased to note that it didn't crease all day, something I find happens even with my favorite Becca highlighter. 

Overall, the packaging was underwhelming but the product itself is a wonderful highlight that universally blends out to a balanced sheen on even the lightest of skin tones.


Pros:   Color Payoff
            Blending ability
           Lasting Power


Cons: $42.00 price tag
           Packaging
