My next post is on one of the most affordable highlighters in my vanity. MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder in the shade “Pink Shimmer.”
GBP 3. Available for AED 40 in UAE.
MUA’s Pink Shimmer 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 Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter Pink Shimmer:
Make Up Academy has a lot of shades in this “Undress” highlighter range (Opalescent Amber, Radiant Cashmere) and the one that I am reviewing today is “Pink Shimmer.” Don’t we all love pink? Don’t we all love shine? And when a makeup product has both pink and shine together! Yes, that made me pick up this highlighter.
I have a lot of highlighters already but this shade was something that I wanted to try from MUA’s range. Considering the low price, I did not really have high expectations from this product. I did like the sturdy packaging and the transparent lid which closes tightly hence making it travel friendly. The shimmer waves pattern on the pan makes this product look attractive.
Since it is a pink shade highlighter, I restricted myself to use this when I have done makeup on the face with pink shades so that the whole makeup look goes well. On the first swatch, I found this highlighter to be quite powdery, but on further blending, it looked fine. It imparts pink shimmer hues which is what I really like about this product. The shimmer is not finely milled and I have to use a heavy hand to apply it. I would not recommend this highlighter for day looks, only for parties, weddings, and night-outs.
This shimmer will look good on light and medium skin tones, it may not suit dusky or deeper complexions. I use my fingertips to apply and blend this highlighter.
The pigmentation is buildable, and it imparts a healthy sheen to the skin, but you wouldn’t be able to achieve the “glow from within” look. It does highlight facial pores, do take note. The shimmer particles do reflect light when blended properly though the powder is a bit chalky.
The staying power is 3 to 4 hours maximum. Also, you can use it as an eyeshadow too.
The quantity is a lot, especially considering the price, and the texture and quality is acceptable. If you want to try a pink shimmer, then it is definitely worth a buy!
