Hight street giant Lush has released five stick highlighters which are now available on its website - following the successful launch of its stick foundation.

The vegan Glow Sticks, which cost £11.95 each, are made from a base of organic extra virgin coconut oil and Moroccan argan oil with finely blended synthetic mica - which provides sparkle and is more eco-friendly than plastic glitter, and more ethical than natural mica.

In addition, 10 percent of profits from the purchase of the Indonesian coconut oil will go to non-profit organisations that fund literacy programmes and dental services on the island of Nias.

The shades, which has been devised to suit a range of skin tones, were inspired by bird plumage. They include Robin (rose), Ibis (gold), Rock Dove (lilac),  Lark (taupe),  and Peacock (green).

A Lush spokesperson told Plant Based News that the sticks are 'are simple to apply and perfect for creating a brightened, reflective effect on the skin'.

The highly pigmented highlighters, which come in a stick format, are best applied directly to the cheek and blended in with fingers or a sponge.

The Glow Sticks will be on sale for one month only.
