Mary Kay Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks

Mary Kay have been hard at work releasing some exciting new products The Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks promises to add radiance to your makeup. They come in Bronze, Silver and Gold shades and offer sheer blendable colour or highlight to all skintones. They can also be worn alone or as highlighter. 

I received all three shades and I have been using them as a highlighter for quite some time now. They are very creamy and the stick applicator means they apply very easily too. They also blend quite well with both fingers and brushes, although I prefer to blend them with a small stippling brush. The formula is true to what Mary Kay describes as ‘creamy’. They also apply sheer but can easily to build up for a more true to colour finish.

Of the three shades, I found the Gold one the most flattering on my skin tone. It’s a true yellow gold colour and quite shimmery too. I found the Bronze shade very light for a ‘bronze’ and when blended out it’s not as shimmery as the Gold shade. The Silver shade I found the most unflattering on my skintone. It’s an almost white colour that looked almost ashy on me so I didn’t reach for this shade often. I found the Illuminating sticks more shimmery/glittery than a glowing finish.

This product is very buildable and feels very soft on the skin. I love the creamy formula and I didn’t feel the need to set the highlighters once on. I wish they gave a little more colour pay off and less shimmer and glitter. I like the Gold shade the most, and the Bronze shade looked nice once built up. 

Mary Kay Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks are priced at £11.00.
