REVIEW - MUA - Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

Hullo Ladies!

I'm reviewing the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter today and I have a lot to say about it!

Like every other blogger and their Gran I was super excited when MUA released the Undress Your Skin Range, this highlighter and the palette were the things I was most excited about so as soon as the release date came I high tailed it down to my local Superdrug in hopes that they had some in! 

Ten Minutes later I walked out of the store with my own Undress Me Too Palette (Reviewed Here) and the Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter. 

First I'm going to talk about some things I like about this highlighter. 

It looks stunning in the compact and is embossed in this expensive looking design that you see on those higher end products were all craving but at a great price - 7.5g for £3!

It also has great pigmentation and a gorgeous peachy/beige tone. 

Now onto what dislike about the product. 

This might be because of my personal skin tone (very pale and red) or type (very dry) but this highlighter just doesn't sit well on my skin, even after trying to blend it into my skin using my fingers, it  looks too unnatural on me and the pink shimmers stand out. 

From L-R - MUA Undress Your Skin - ELF Gotta Glow - Bourjois Eye Shadow in Blanc Diaphane

The MUA highlighter is more pigmented than the ELF one but not as smooth as my Bourjois one. I know the Bourjois one isn't a highlighter but It's what I use it as and hey...there's no rules to makeup! 

All in all even though I'm not 100% happy with it, I think it's one you need to try yourself to see how it looks on you. I am hoping they bring out some more of these with some different finishes and I also think it would be amazing if they brought out blushes in this size with that embossing! 

Have you tried this highlighter?
