Budget Buy: MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter



I have been trying to get my mitts on the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter for absolute ages, but it was sold out everywhere for a couple of months! Crazy! I made sure to sign up to Superdrug's notifications though, to let me know when it is back in stock and as soon as I got the email, I ordered... THREE of them :) haha.


The reason why I wanted this highlighter so badly is because I don't own anything similar. The colour of MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter is absolutely gorgeous, with a subtle pearly pink sheen. I am obsessed with it! It looks gorgeous paired with a pink blusher and pink lips and it adds a nice glow to my face, without looking glittery. The formula has an almost creamy, silky texture and it applies like a dream! I use it on tops of my cheekbones, centre of my nose and cupids bow and the effect is just amazing, especially for the £3.00 price tag! I doesn't beat my all time favourite The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, but it is stunning and I would definitely recommend it!

On top of that, the design is beautiful and looks like a limited edition MAC Mineralize Skin Finish. Perfect! It is a  must have, especially if you are on a tight budget and want a good quality highlighter. I think that it would look even better on paler skin tones, but I quite like the way it looks on me, even with a dark tan.

You can buy the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter from Superdrug. They currently offer free delivery on orders over £10 and have a 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics :)

I will be also giving one of these away in an international thank you giveaway this weekend, so keep your eyes peeled.

    1. I haven't seen them in store, since the release months ago. They are always sold out, that's why I ordered them online.

  5. MUA is my secret budget buy! Their dupes for the Naked palettes are greats.

    1. It's great to see that they offer so many dupes, but I know that it started to annoy people too.
      I don't mind to be honest :)

  8. I picked this up on a whim what seems like ages ago, I never really used highlighters before now I wax lyrical about it to anybody who cares to listen! I love MUA, I ummed and ahhed over which naked palette I wanted so I picked up the 2 dupes and saw which one I reached for more often! I think they are a great brand for newbies to experiment with make up, cheap, easily available and cruelty free!

    1. My face must have looked so dull, before I started using highlighters :) It wasn't that long ago actually. Every girl needs at least one in their makeup bag :) With a £3 price tag - there is no excuse, haha.
