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!
