Review: Marc Jacobs Glow Stick


“Holy Glow Batman!” Those were the words that left my mouth when I first tried the Marc Jacobs Glow Stick in Spotlight.

I love love love this highlighter. In fact, this might be my favourite highlighter I’ve ever purchased. Bold statement, I know. Why you ask? Because it truly looks as though you’re glowing.

The thing that I love most about this Glow Stick is that it makes your skin almost look wet. It’s a combination of the shimmer (which is super fine – no sparkle chunks here), and the balmy consistency.


It’s not just a cream highlighter – it has almost an oily texture to it. I know that might seem weird, but if you’re like me and like the look of super dewy, almost wet skin, then you will LOVE this. Maybe not recommended for people with super oily skin.

The only downside, I would say, is the applicator. It looks like a deodorant stick. There’s no way around that. I also prefer to apply this with my fingers, it just seems strange using the stick as the applicator. It’s also pretty big/chunky, which doesn’t make it the best for traveling.

Besides that though, I’m thrilled to have this added to my makeup collection, and would HIGHLY recommend! That’s an A for you, Marc Jacobs!
