My Experience with MUA Luxe Set and Reflect Finishing Kit:
MUA Luxe Set and Reflect Finishing Kit comes in a gorgeous silver and black box with a mirror finish. It looks so attractive and luxurious, which also has a beautiful mirror inside the cap, but it doesn’t come with any applicator. Once you open the box, it has two compartments: one for the beautiful highlighter and, the other one for the setting powder. The design of the highlighter looks very pretty. Though the box feels slightly heavy, I love this sleek packaging.
It’s a finishing kit so, it contains one gorgeous highlighter, which actually looks like a baked highlighter in a pan. It has two shades: gold and silver, so the combination of these two creates a beautiful wearable shade for all skin tones. In swatches, the shade looks like a gorgeous light golden highlighter with finely milled shimmers in it. It is perfect for achieving that strobe like glow on the face, and the shade is intensely pigmented.
The setting powder looks like a white translucent powder. I feel it will work for all skin tones as a setting powder, but will not look great as a face powder on darker skin tones. On my medium skin tone, it works perfectly. The texture of the highlighter and powder are finely milled and feels super smooth on application, especially the highlighter feels very soft and blends easily on cheeks and never looks over the top. It has that perfect amount of shimmers, so it looks very natural and glowing. The highlighter gives that perfect illuminating look, which I always prefer. It provides a smooth, flawless finish as well.
Talking about the setting powder, it is also a super smooth powder that is well-pigmented and provides an instant freshness to the skin. It feels very comfortable and lightweight on the skin. Its fine texture doesn’t feel chalky. Though it is a white powder, it never leaves any white cast on the face. I really like its formula, which blends effortlessly and gives a flawless matte finish without making my skin dry. It is good for all skin types. I prefer to use it as a setting powder rather than a compact powder. It is perfect to apply on the under eye areas and works well as a highlighter too.
The setting powder sets my makeup well and controls the oil too. I like to apply it on my T-zone, and it helps in controlling the shine for around 3 hours, which is pretty good. But, it is not a super oil-controlling product. It also prevents my makeup from creasing while prolonging the wear time of my makeup.
The highlighter and the setting powder can survive easily for 5 hours. I really like its freshness and the smooth matte finish. On my oily skin, they both perform well and provide a flawless finish. Only if I sweat, the highlighter slightly moves from its place. It suits my sensitive skin well.
But, I don’t like its smell as it has a slight chemical fragrance. Otherwise, it is a great face kit for all skin types, and it provides a beautiful glow to the skin, which is perfect for all.
