Review: MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter

If you don’t glow in the summer, then when?!  As you can say from the title, today’s post will be dedicated to the mua undress your skin highlighter. It’s super affordable (£3 if I remember correctly), so it’s definitely worth talking about.


The packaging is super simple, with clear lid, so you can see the pretty wavy pattern. It very much reminds me of the Primark highlighter, and for that reason I’m going to kind of compare them now.

Both of them look absolutely stunning in their pans and easily manage to catch the light. The MUA one looks a little bit holographic or it could be just me seeing it that way.


Personally, I find the MUA highlighter a little bit too dry and powdery. I’m going to show you some swatches now and you’ll clearly see how blended the Primark highlighter is, compared to the MUA one. It just looks patchy on me and I’m not a fan of that. It might be because it’s not suitable for my skin tone or.. who knows??


Overall… I don’t know. I can’t say it’s a bad product, but the MUA highlighter is just not my favourite. I’m not reaching out for it very often, no matter how pretty or blinding it looks. I don’t really enjoy using it but everyone has their own preferences after all.

Would I recommend: well, it’s only £3 and there’s a chance that you might like it, so it’s worth trying.

Have you ever tried any of the MUA highlighters? Should I give it another try? Let me know if you liked it or it’s just me doing something wrong!

Thank you for reading,

    Good review. I, too, think the Primark highlighter looks better on the skin.

    I’ve never heard of these higlighters, but the way they look is amazing!! It’s a shame they don’t quite match up to par 🙂

      They are quite popular brands, especially Primark is the holy grail 🙂

    I often us MUA highlighters- I have it in two shades. I found that you have to kind of get through the top layer for it to work best. xx

    I tried one of the MUA highlighters and I know it was one with a pink duo-chrome and it looked really nice on the skin, not too chunky or glittery it was really pretty. I nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award would love it if you could check it out and take part!

      I’m not very much into highlighters, so I have only a few. My favourite are liquid highlighters, which many people don’t like, but I find them super comfortable to work with. From my personal collection, I’d say the Model Co trio or the Primark highlighters 🙂
