Today I’m back with another multi-use cream stick review. I seriously can’t get enough of these types of products lately for achieving a more minimal yet glowy makeup look! My last few reviews for these types of products have all featured high-end makeup so when I found an amazing drugstore alternative, I felt the need to share.
The NYX Bright Idea Illuminating Sticks * have the cutest packaging and the formula is really nice. There are quite a few shades to choose from, which is really great. I have ‘Pearl Pink Lace’ which is a pinky nude with a subtle shimmer I like to highlight with, ‘Brick Red Blaze’ which is a crimson pink hue with gold shimmer I like to use on the cheeks and lips, and ‘Sun Kissed Crush’ which is a goldy bronze shade I like to use as a contour.
These sticks have such a creamy consistency that is really easy to blend out with your fingers, a brush, or a makeup sponge. While all three shades I have contain glitter, it is very subtle on the skin and not at all chunky, which I really like. Sometimes I find drugstore products with glitter to look intense on the skin, but that certainly wasn’t the case with these ones.
I love how long lasting these are. They stay on all day without needing a touch up! These sticks are really great for traveling too, since they are compact and you don’t need a brush to use them.
If you’ve been curious about using multi-use stick products, I definitely recommend starting with the Illuminating Sticks from NYX – the price point is great and the quality is really nice!
