Topshop Glow Stick

Love yourself some Benefit Watts Up or Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick? You’ll adore Topshop Glow Stick for sure! This chubby swivel up creamy highlighter is the perfect way to get a little glow on your face and cheeks!

Topshop Glow Stick Play Up

Topshop Glow Stick (Play Up)

Topshop Glow Stick ($15) is a chunky swivel up creamy highlighter crayon that can be used on cheeks, face, or even eyes and body. The twist up design makes it super portable to add a touch of a candlelight glow to your face with by dabbing on and blending out.

The light reflecting cream isn’t super glittery or shimmery but it adds a nice skin enhancing glow to skin. I tried it out in the shade Play Up which is a frosty light shade of champagne. The formula is super pigmented so a little goes a very long way at adding a touch of light to skin. Simply dot it on and you can blend it out with your finger tips on the tops of your cheek bones or even on your high brow to give eyes a more awake appearance. The creamy texture blends out super easily and it wears quite strongly without fading for a solid eight hours. You can define cheeks and face with a nice light bronzer and add a touch of the Topshop Glow Stick to sculpt with!

They also have a stunning NARS Orgasm-like shade that’s just as gorgeous which adds not only glow but a hint of color to cheeks as well!

We’re about to head into the duller, colder skincare days come the cooler weather so best keep around favs like this to add some luminosity to tired skin!

It’s available now at Topshop stores or online at

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Is there a particular reason this doesn’t get a “muse approved” stamp from you?

          Yes you need Molten eyeshadow sticks πŸ˜› great staying power and apply like a dream on your lids, pity shade selection is very limited πŸ™ really would love to see some neutral colours it’d be great for work/day looks.
