Makeup Academy (MUA) Undress Your Skin Highlighter - Review + Swatches

One of my all time favourite highlights that I have tried is the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter. This highlighter costs £3 and can be found at your local Superdrug. If you do not have a Superdrug near you, you can order this on the Superdrug website or the MUA website.



As many of you probably know I am a huge fan of drugstore makeup, especially when you can get great quality products for super cheap! Makeup Academy is a very inexpensive drugstore brand that is exclusively sold at Superdrug. Most of the products cost between £1-4 and many of the products are very high quality. One of my favourites from the line is the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter. I personally love a shimmery champagne highlight and the MUA highlighter is exactly that!


The first thing you notice about the highlighter is how much product you actually get. Compared to the £1 blushes you get almost double the actual product in the container. Since you only need the smallest bit of product this product will last you ages before you need to repurchase it. The highlighter is a champagne shade that glistens with a pink sheen in the direct sunlight. I would highly suggest keeping this highlighter limited to your cheeks and would not suggest using this down the bridge of your nose, inner forehead, or above your lip bow as the pink sheen may look a little strange.



One great way to wear this highlighter is using it lightly over the top of a matte blush. This would give a little shimmer and a nice glow to the cheeks. To do this I would highly suggest using a Stippling brush so that you do not grab too much of the powder. To highlight above my cheekbone I like to use an angled brush to place the product exactly where I want it.

The only downside I have about this highlighter is that the packaging is a little cheap. The lid on my product actually fell off so now I need to store it with the lid just sitting on top of the product. This is extremely not good for use in travel but if you placed it in a baggy I think it would be okay. Although the packaging is a little cheap I think it is still a great price for a good highlighter that contains this much product! I can also see the glitter particles being a problem for some people who prefer a more subtle highlight or a 'natural' highlight. If you are a fan of shimmery highlights then this is the perfect product for you!

    1. It's just extremely hard to get a picture of it because I am so pale that my camera refuses to focus on it because 'nothing is there' haha. Really looks nice on the cheeks though and is very pigmented.

    1. I don't travel much any ways and even if I did I would just pack this in a zip lock baggy or something! I think the product is great and I use it every single day. Love the shimmer it gives to the cheeks and I think it is a great cheap product for the Summer months to really give yourself a glow!

    1. Yeah it is a little unfortunate, although I have not had any other problems with the MUA packaging so I am not sure if I was just too rough with this product or what.

    1. It does last an extremely long time doesn't it! It seems like I have used it for months now and I use this everyday and I've only just put a dent into it.

  6. I really want to try this since I've been loving the glowy look recently. And MUA products do tend to have cheap packaging, pretty much all of my products have cracked or fallen off lids!

    1. This is the only product that I have from MUA where the packaging has fallen off. I think this highlighter is totally worth it though and it is great for the Summer months when you want dewy glowing skin!
