NYX Bright Idea Illuminating Stick

Image credit:

A relatively new release from NYX, these twist-up tubes of shimmery beautifulness is a great new product. These sticks can be used as blushes or highlighters depending on the colour you purchase. Although I don’t have any, there are some contour shades available as well. I have two of the highlighters in the shades Chardonnay Shimmer (champagne) and Lavender Lust (lavender) as well as three of the blushes in Pinkie Dust (light pink), Rose Petal Pop (bolder pink), and Brick Red Blaze (red).

These are very easy to use and I usually swipe on a stripe on my cheekbones or swipe it on the apple of my cheeks and blend it in using my finger.

The highlighters particularly are stunning on the skin, one I use frequently is Chardonnay Shimmer, and especially looks gorgeous in photos! Even from afar the highlight is noticeable but not in a particularly obnoxious way where it’s just a stripe of light.

Check out all the shades available on NYX (…hlight-contour) to see if any is of your interest!

Final Thoughts

I always love how affordable yet amazing NYX products are. Although many highlights come in pan form, this is a very handy product to quickly apply some product on your cheeks or even carry with you on the go!

Overall Score 4.6
