I have been wanting to do the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter Review, Swatches post for a long time now. MUA also known as Make Up Academy is a very well known UK based brand which comes up with some of the most amazing makeup products at very affordable costs. I love the fact that some of their products pretty much meet the standards of higher end makeup such as this one. MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter has been also claimed to be the dupe of MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish.

In Detail MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter Review, Swatches and My Experience
It comes in a basic packaging with a transparent lid. The surface of the product has been carved to some admirable swirled contours which just gives out a beautiful luminosity. It immediately catches one’s attention. The back of the product mentions all details including the ingredients.
I would describe the shade as white-gold with soft subtle pink undertones. Almost like a pearly glow finish with soft pinks. It is quite intensely pigmented. You will see in the swatches below, I only ran my finger on the surface of the highlighter once, and the pigmentation it gave on my hand was lovely. What I love the most about this highlighter is the fact that it gives the most natural looking glow on the skin. It makes the pictures look very nice and highlighted at the right places. Some beauties prefer wearing this only on the cheeks since it has pink undertones, however I wear it on my cheek bones, near my brows and on my nose tip. The pink undertones do not show as much once the product is blended. If you want to get the pink-glow with this highlighter, you will need to build it up. But make sure you do not go too overboard because the product is really pigmented.
The staying power of the product is around 3-4 hours on my combination skin. It does need frequent touch ups later on. But I guess that’s ok as long as it gives me that evened out dewy finish. It never turned patchy on me. I have really enjoyed using this. I usually apply it using my real techniques fan brush. You can apply it the way you are comfortable.
I recommend this to all the ladies looking for a budget friendly highlighter which stands pretty near to the standards of higher end ones. If you are a beginner with highlighters or makeup in general, I would suggest starting off with budget friendly products such as this one.
