Hourglass Vanish™ Flash Highlighting Stick

Not content with giving makeup obsessives one of the prettiest powder highlighters around, L.A.’s very own Hourglass Cosmetics set out to up its highlighter game with a brand-new release that may remind sci-fi nerds of a certain Star Wars weapon. But the Hourglass Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick ($42) won’t vaporize big baddies. Instead, it’s a smooth-as-silk stick highlighter that leaves a gleaming finish in its wake. Isn’t that better than a laser sword?

“I wanted to create a highlighter that was weightless with the intense payoff of Vanish,” says Hourglass founder Carisa Janes. “I love that with one application it gives off the most stunning flash of light to the skin and creates this amazingly seamless highlight.”

Offered in five shades, including Champagne Flash, Pink Flash, Rose Gold Flash, Gold Flash, and Bronze Flash, Vanish isn’t for anyone who leans shy on the highlighter front. Bold, brash, and definitely in-your-face, these high-impact colors lean on their stick foundation inspiration. Hourglass adds that some of the deeper shades can be used as blush on darker complexions and, of course, the smooth formula plays well with itself, so feel free to pick up more than one to cocktail your own perfect shade. Like Vanish foundation, the sticks are triangular, so getting the perfect, precise application is a breeze. Use those corners to get the brow bone, inner eyes, and wherever else you could use a little glow. Want to go all out? Swipe some on your collarbones for an instant hit of  etherial glow.
