Happy October 1st glamour babes! I maybe ready for fuzzy boots, big comfy sweaters, dark vampy lips, and right out of the oven fresh baked apple pie, but I need to feel the nice warm glow of NYX's Bright Idea Illuminating stick ($8.00) to tie it all together. I gotta keep toasty somehow, or at least pretend, lol.

The illuminating stick is relatively new to NYX. It launched this past summer, and it's surprisingly amazing! I'm more of an illuminating/highlighter powder kind of a gal. I love using my powder brushes to achieve the best blending effect possible when wanting to create some bling on my skin. But, because I love NYX so much, even though their Plush Gel Lipstick was a bust. Their highlighter/illuminators never let me down, which led me to purchase three of the Bright Idea Illuminating Sticks; Lavender Lust, Pinkie Dust, and Pearl Pink Lace. Plus, Ulta has BOGO at the time, so it was a deal I could not pass up. No shoppers remorse here, lol.
Lavender Lust is a light lavender with shimmer. My ultimate favorite out of the three. I am so loving lavender highlighters for this fall weather as we head into winter. I'm enjoying the frosty glow that carries a subtle underlying hint of pale purple.

Pinkie dust is a light rose pink with a gold glitter. Don't worry the glitter is micro fine and you won't come out looking like a disco ball. This blush stick gives you a pretty pinched cheek rosy glow with a pearlized finish.


Pearl Pink Lace is a nude pink with shimmer. I got nuthin on this one, except that its hella pretty too! Lol.


Available in a range of radiating hues--including four highlighters, four blushes and four bronzers--each creamy-soft shade goes on smoothly and sets right away for an instant, lit-from-within glow. Petite, portable, perfect for strobing and toting around the makeup bag, it’s the makeup must-have of the season, or any season if you ask me.

NYX's Bright Idea Illuminating sticks are chubby, twistable (love!), have a lightweight, smooth, and creamy formula, that applies evenly and easily, creating no streaks or producing cakey buildup. They are comfortable to wear, and are highly pigmented, making them work for every skin tone. You can use any makeup tool you have in your kit to manipulate these Illuminating sticks; oval brushes, stippling brushes, finger tips, blending sponges, flip flop, whatever your heart desires. These illuminating sticks apply like the bright idea they are......a dream. The color payoff isn't too bad either. My glow stayed with me all day, keeping the gorgeous hues of color along with it.
Okay, whose going to have the bright idea and give NYX"s Illuminating Sticks a try? Don't dull out on this one!
Stay Beautiful! Xo.
