Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder


When MUA announced their new Undress Your Skin collection, I could barely contain myself when I saw the pictures of the products. All products are exactly what I wanted MUA to bring out. Not only are they affordable to a part time working student like myself, but their product quality for the low price is second to none.

The first picture I saw (and the most exciting personally) was the Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder. At an introductory price of £2 (usually £3), this highlighter reminds me of MAC's Mineralized skin finish in Soft and Gentle. It can be used as a highlighter for your cheek bones/brow bones/nose etc. or used all over as a powder; which I prefer to do as it gives a dewy glow absorbing the excess oils on my skin. What excited me even more, was the beautiful design on the highlighter. It looks more expensive looking and fancy with this design, which I like, otherwise it would look a bit boring and like any other high street highlighter. As you may have also noticed, the packaging is white, too! I think it looks pretty sleek considering I'm into more black packaging, I think it holds up MUA's idea of a new line completely. 

Obviously, this may not be a product for those that don't like to use highlighter, but I do have to say it's not so shimmery that it scares you off. It has a subtle shimmer, that perks your skin up and like it says completely transforms it. You don't look cakey, or oily, or tired looking. I really recommend highlighters generally to bring out parts of the face, but I also recommend this powder to replace your normal face powder and then maybe use another highlighter on top to bring out other areas? It's completely up to you, and that's what I love about this product; you can work it to what best suits you. 

Have you tried any of the new Undress Your Skin collection yet?

  3. Thanks you Lauren for this review, I'm all over this new collection myself ;)
    I have my eye on this powder and the new Undress Me Too palette (I already have the Undressed one and I love it!)
    Here in France MUA is not famous (yet!) but I'm doing my best to make it so hehe
    I think it's far superior to ELF (which is well-known here) ! And I'm glad they finally made brushes, too :D

    1. Hi! ^_^ Yeah I've tried ELF but not a lot of it as it's not that easy to get a hold of :(! I hope MUA get bigger, I hear they've recently been to america and are doing collaborations with people so I'm really excited! I really enjoy MUA... it's all over my blog hehe!
