MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter - Review
Today guys i thought i would do a quick review of a makeup product i don't normally talk about, ie highlighter. Its not that i don't like or use highlighter its just that its a very rare occasion i will find one i like. Cream/liquid highlighters aren't for me as in the past ive had problems blending them and on top of that the ones i do rather like are quite pricey. And although i don't mind spending money on great products i don't like to spend more than i can justify on a product that i won't be using everyday.
MUA to me is a brand that delivers quality ( in most cases anyway) at a price that is more than reasonable. In the past ive loved there Matte collection and there palettes and therefore was a tad excited to hear they were launching a new range .... (drum roll please) ... the Undress Your Skin collection. The collection includes, Flawless primer, illuminating foundation, radiant under eye concealer, and last but not least highlighter powder.
Obviously i would have liked to have been able to get my hands on the whole range but i literally went down the day after they hit superdrug stores and they were sold out of most new products. Therefore i had to make do with the highlighting powder which if im honest was the product i was least excited about getting hold of. Im super glad i did pick it up though as its proberbly one of the only drugstore highlighters ive gotten on with in a long time. To start with i think the packaging is lovely and im liking the white sleeker looking packaging over the bulky black one were used to. The highlighter itself is equally as nice, to me there's nothing worse than a overly shimmery or glittery highlighter that makes you look like you have just stuck your face in a pot of iridescent glitter. Thankfully this is not the case with this one, with a lovely peal like finish to it, it sits perfectly on the skin giving you a nice healthy looking glow. It is rather pink toned which is what most highlighters are but not too pale so it will work well with all skin tones. In terms of application it applies really easily and hardly any blending is needed making it quick and comfortable. I would say it lasts a long time and you don't need tones of it either just swirl your brush around the pan and your good to go. Also i love the fact that its powder formula as i feel it sits nicer on the skin and like i say you need very little.
Overall i really like this product and will continue to use it, can't wait to get my hands on more of the collection now!
