REVIEW | MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter

Friday, 29 August 2014

Good day my Honeybee's!

Now that Autumn is approaching I have been searching for a highlighter which will compliment my Autumnal make up routine!

I like to switch up my look depending on the season and during the Autumn months I prefer to use earthy tones such as brown eye shadows and cranberry lips, and I wanted a golden highlighter to finish the look off, so I was very pleased when budget make up brand MUA (Make Up Academy) announced the launch of a new highlighter in their 'undress your skin' range.

MUA previously released a more skin toned shade for this product named 'pink shimmer' - of which I am a huge fan, so I was very eager to get my hands on the new shade 'Iridescent Gold', and I haven't stopped wearing it since!
This product retails at a bargain of £3 for 7.5g, and trust me when I say a little goes a long way, so you know it's going to last you an age!
I really love the packaging of this, it is tough, robust and much more expensive looking than it really is! The lid is thick plastic, which is super tough and the casing is a lovely white which is so clean and professional looking. You can find all product information on the reverse of the packaging, which is handy to know!

I am so in love with the presentation of this product - it has an almost 'whipped' look to it, its just stunning! I love how the light catches it and it just looks so pretty - it really caught my eye when I spotted it on the shelf (and it was the last one, so I totally snapped it up!).

'Iridescent Gold' looks so beautiful in all light aspects, it has a really gorgeous shimmer that makes the face look healthy and glowing. I really like that the golden tones will work well to highlight and accentuate all the features of the face.
The powder applies so smoothly and effortlessly - I just use a flat brush to sweep it under my brows, along the cheekbones, on my cupids bow and the tip of my nose and it stays put perfectly, it really opens up my face and makes it look so pretty and healthy.

There's no need to worry, this highlighter wont leave you looking like you just got dipped in a shimmer bath - it is very subtle and can easily be built up to be as dramatic as you like, it is so versatile!
You can see here how pretty it looks - especially on the brow bone ;) It keeps my face from looking too flat and stops my skin looking dull!

I am so glad that I managed to get my hands on this, it really is so perfect for the autumn months when the sun is low and the colours are changing in store! It is such a bargain and definitely worth adding to your make up bag!

You can find MUA products exclusively in Superdug (free delivery on orders over £10 on their website), or you can shop their entire range on their official website - there is so much to choose from! They also have a facebook page  so you can keep up with new releases!


  1. Do you know if I can find MUA in the US or if Super Drug will ship here? After reading this I am interested in trying this highlighter.

  2. Hello Sweet Erica
    It really is a lovely highlighter!
    MUA actually ship to the US themselves ... you can find all their delivery info on their site (here;
    I think it would cost you around £7 so If you are going to do it id definitely recommend picking up a few other pieces ... they are such bargain prices and such great products!
    Hope this helps and thanks for reading

  5. I wasn't a big fan of the original one, it was just too metallic-y. This one looks more natural though :)

    1. I totally agree - this one is much more wearable and suits more skin tones! Its worth a try for £3 :D
      Thanks for reading!
