NYX Cosmetics’ Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Lavender Lust

This was the first of these that I bought. I knew that I’d be using it a lot! This is actually one of my go-to brow highlighters (the other two being Pinkie Promise and Chardonnay Shimmer), though I do use it as a cheek highlighter occasionally.

On the upside, this is a lovely shade for me. The purple complements my coloring very nicely. On the downside, it is a waxy base that doesn’t blend easily with powder blushes.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the face color in the pot; top right, the face color patted loosely over primer, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the color applied to the cheeks.
