MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter

Straight up, I bought MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter when I was with Bezzie as she bought one to replace her old one.  I figured 'well if she thinks it's that good that she needs a replacement, I need to try it!'


I picked one up immediately, then I swatched it and noticed it seemed to have a blue tone in it, couldn't imagine how it was going to work out as my beloved theBalm Mary Lou Manizer is champagne and gold tones, nothing else. 

 

I still bought it was for two reasons, firstly it was £3 and secondly I really liked the swirls in the powder (ridiculous or what?!)

 

I use this powder with a fan brush and sweep it across the tops of my cheeks, above my eyebrows and on my cupids bow.  On the skin I don't feel that it comes across with the blue tone that I originally saw and it's much more subtle than theBalm Mary Lou Manizer.   For this reason I think it's brilliant for someone that has a really heavy hand as it's more forgiving

 

The bottom line is... I think if you're on a budget, don't think you'll use it that often or have a heavy hand then this would be a brilliant highlighter option for you.  

However to be perfectly honest, I do prefer theBalm Mary Lou Manizer.  I think it's possible that my thoughts about being good for a heavy handed person probably goes hand in hand with the fact that theBalm highlighter is much more high quality, creamy and pigmented and that's why you're paying a lot more for it.

  1. Exactly that - good for budget and beginner, before I graduate to something of better quality.
