REVIEW: MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter - £3 from Superdrug
I'd seen this MUA highlighter gracing a few blogs for a while now but it just never seemed to be in stock when I was in Superdrug. I finally managed to get a hold of it a few weeks ago and thought I'd share my first impressions of this bargain highlighter from one of my favourite brands.

The product itself is packaged in a white plastic compact with a clear lid which is pretty standard for this kind of product, I find the compact a bit difficult to open sometimes but that's probably just me and my butterfingers. The highlighter is a lovely pale pink with a very fine shimmer and seems to have a bit of a baked finish on the top. This finish made it a bit hard to get a decent amount of colour pay off at first but after scraping it away a bit it was much easier to use.

Highlighters are a bit difficult to photograph I think, so I use a couple of layers for the swatch above (full face of the day post coming on Wednesday). I found the actual product quite chalky at first however it blended quite easily and gave a really pretty subtle glow. I personally prefer a more peach or champagne toned highlighter, or just one that is less pink, so I only use a touch of this in my every day make up and opt for the highlighter in my Sleek Contour Kit when making more of an effort with my face.

Overall, for £3 you can't really go wrong, it's a great little highlighter and I think it will last me quite a while. I still prefer my Sleek Contour Kit highlighter because of the shade but it's a bit pricier as you can't purchase it separately. If you're after a more pearly pink highlighter then this could be the one for you!

What's your favourite high street highlighter?



  1. I've been debating whether or not to get this. It seems to be a bargain for £3 and you can't complain, but I have my doubts. Think I may try out the Sleek Contour Kit and see how that goes :-)


  2. It seems to be another great little product from MUA and since I usually don't bother with highlighter it's an affordable way to start experimenting with it :o) Xx

  4. What a gorgeous shade and such a steal for the price!

  5. such a lovely colour! ive not got a highlighter in my current make up collection so this might be a good starter pick for myself! What kind of brush do you use to apply it?

  6. I really want to try this as I've never had a powder highlighter, only Benefit liquid ones! It's always out of stock when I look though :( xx

  7. i've been having the same issue tying to find a superdrug that has it in sock! my local one on has a teeny tiny mua section that's always sold out! i'll definitely have to hunt it down now!
    love love love your blog!


  8. Oooh I often look at this, but determined to use more makeup I already have before I buy more - I only have one face!

  9. for £3 this highlighter looks so nice, I have nearly a full 'pan' of MAC soft and gentle though so I best get using that before I start buying more highlighters!

  13. I have this I don't wear it religiously as like you i prefer more of a champagne hued highlighter but like you said for the price you cannot complain. It's actually quite mad that this is sold out in most people's superdrug store as this always seems to be the product that doesn't shift in my local store!

    Great blog
