Makeup Academy Undress Your Skin Highlighter Swatch Review Belle-amie

Today I have another MUA product from the "Undress" range to review for you! I recently picked up the new highlighter powder after lusting after how beautiful it looked in the pan. I don't have many highlighters in my makeup collection and thought this would be a great piece to add to it!

The Undress Your Skin Highlighter is a lightweight baked powder that is designed to illuminate the skin with a fine layer of shimmer. This highlighter suits all skin tones as it is a natural, pink/ shell shade and looks amazing on the cheek and brown bones. To apply, I swirl my Real Techniques Contour Brush in the powder and apply it to my cheek bones, just above my blusher. I find the pigmentation of this powder is perfect for me as a small amount gives my cheeks a lovely, natural looking glow!  You could definitely build the pigmentation up though if you prefer a stronger looking highlight! I find that this highlighter lasts about 4 hours on my skin (with a primer underneath) and then needs a touch up!

I think it was the look of product that sold me on this, it looks stunning in the pan and the detail of the powder is amazing for just £3! I really think MUA have done well with this and makes it look more expensive than it actually is! It also comes in a white, round plastic pot which I do like, but of course, isn't the nicest packaging around.

Overall I think for just £3, this is such a lovely highlighting powder and looks just like a high end product. This is now a part of my everyday makeup and I'm loving it! I'm glad I've managed to pick this up as I've heard it keeps selling out in most Superdrug stores, so is definitely a popular product! At the moment the Undress Your Skin Highlighter is just £2 on the MUA website, so there's no better time like now to pick it up!

Have you tried the Undress Your Skin Highlighter? What are your thoughts on it?

  12. Love the look of this. It's nice to see some cheaper highlighters on the high street cause there isn't any. This reminds me of Mac Soft and Gentle but not as gold

  23. A while ago MAC released a collection [that I think was called In Extra Dimension] that carried a highlighter just like this! Even the wavy texture "stamped" on the powder was the same. I bought myself that highlighter and now that MUA released this, I regret that very much! I suppose this product is a dupe for the MAC one, just like the eyeshadow palette for the Naked 2 by Urban Decay, but this has much less gold in it what to me is just better! :( Oh, well *sigh*

    1. Yes I remember a highlighter by MAC that looked similar to this! MUA is brilliant at doing dupes, especially because they're super cheap! xx

  32. This highlighter looks amazing! The texture looks so smooth and the highlighter has the right amount of shimmer and a wonderful base shade. The little pattern in the pan is gorgeous too and to top it off, the price is extremely affordable! I might give Undress Your Skin a go once MUA have another free international shipping offer :)
