NYX Cosmetics’ Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Pearl Pink Lace

This is a very light creme with no shimmer at all. This is more of a shade-lightening stick than a "shimmer" stick that many people think of as a highlighter. I use it as a softer cheek color, but also as a neutral base on my lids. This is an item that I don't use very much, since this color is so close to my own skintone that it doesn't make an effective highlighter. It is a nice neutral base shade for my lids.
