As a self confessed Kim Kardashian fanatic (don't judge, the Kardashins are all amazingly beautiful and business savvy!) I am constantly in awe of her dewy glowy skin. Having very dry skin myself I always find it nice to put some oomph into my cheeks on top of my foundation, or else I feel like I look plain and monotone. Strange I know, but skin is made to be glowing and illuminated in my opinion.
While I'm not the world's biggest fan of the MUA brand, in fact their shoddy customer service severely puts me off, but I couldn't pass up this product from their latest line, Undress Your Skin. A mere £3 in Superdrug no less!
I spotted this lovely looking highlighter and immediately loved it. (I don't know how they've managed to get away with almost copying MAC with the design of the product in the pan though!)
MUA say: 'A lightweight baked powder designed to provide sheer coverage and a radiant soft-focus effect to transform your complexion with luminescence shimmer. The Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder perfects any look by creating a natural, healthy glow that is suitable for all skin tones.'

Although I loved this product based on the look of it, I admit that I'm left a teeny bit underwhelmed with the application of this highlighter. It looks so golden and delicious in the pan, and then on a swatch it comes out very pink, like a light champagne. I swatched it with my other two favourite golden highlighters because I thought it could match them, but as you can see it clearly doesn't. It's not incredibly pigmented and the shimmer's not all too brilliant. In fact I wore it out and had to reapply my highlighter a number of times, which never happens to me usually.
So MUA's highlighter is good for a bargain £3, but here is a classic case, in my opinion, of you get what you pay for!
Are you more of a matte or dewy skin kinda gal?
