Greetings my ladies!
Since the world is obsessed with highlighters, here’s one from my stash. Let’s get into the detailed review of MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter in Radiant Cashmere.
INR 800 in India.
MUA’s highlighting powder instantly radiates and lifts any complexion. This can be applied all over for an added radiance or applied to the cheek bones and under the brow bone to lift and accentuate your natural features.
My Experience with MUA Radiant Cashmere Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter:
Packaging: The highlighter comes in a white compact pan with a transparent lid. The pan closes with a reassuring click, so no worries of the pan opening in any case. The highlighter is very travel-friendly and can be easily carried in a vanity bag. It has a very beautiful swirling wave pattern embossed over which looks more classy and unique than the other highlighters. The price is just amazing from a brand like MUA because they do offer great quality and quantity.
Initially when I opened it, I felt it was similar to the shade Opalescent Amber. In fact. Opalescent Amber was the first highlighter I purchased. On subsequent uses, I found that the color is a beautiful balance of rose gold, copper and silver. It is undoubtedly a universally flattering shade, which can be carried well by all skin tones and age groups. The “pinkishness”
and shimmer combined with the golden-copper tinge makes it a versatile highlighting shade. You can wear it with a light hand for a day-time look or a more generous flush for parties and weddings.
The pigmentation is good and buildable. You can sweep it with a blush or highlighting brush on your cheeks and dust it on the bridge of your nose to achieve that healthy sheen. It illuminates your skin, the minute shimmer particles reflect light oh-so-beautifully. It is never “in-your-face” loud but has the sophistication that makes it wearable for women well above 50.
The texture is smooth. The powder is finely milled and has zero chalkiness. It doesn’t kick up powder in the pan and has the perfect texture for easy and even blending.
It doesn’t highlight your pores, neither masks them. On its own, it stays around 3.5-4 hours which is slightly disappointing. You can extend the wear time by 2-3 hours by using a primer.
“Radiant Cashmere” does make my skin look glowy and radiant, which is definitely what I am looking for in my highlighter. It is a good highlighter, albeit the staying power could be improved.
