MUA highlighter

The MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter in Iridescent Gold is my first ever individual highlighter which I have ever bought. This may be shocking to any fellow beauty blogger, but I have just never been certain where to invest my money as there are so many to choose from. I have seen quite a few bloggers mentioning this little gem which sits on the shelves of Superdrug, but was unsure whether to try for myself. I have never really been impressed with anything from MUA's line before this, so I was surprised to see how many people were excited about this product. I have had my eye on Jaclyn Hill's x Becca collaboration which contains her champagne pop highlighter collection for a while now, but I have not had the money to spend so much on one product.

On a spontaneous visit to Superdrug I stumbled across the MUA stand and decided I would take the plunge and by this highlighter, and boy am I glad I finally did! This costs just £3 and I think it might just be the best £3 I have spent in the whole of 2016. I wore this for the first time on a night out with my uni friends and as soon as I opened the door one of my friends first response was "what is on your cheekbones?". There and then I went around dusting this like crazy on all my friends so we were all gleaming like little discoballs on our cheekbones, which caught beautifully in the light. Since that night I have been using this on a daily basis. The design of this product is aesthetically pleasing  with the fancy whirl design, which is surprising to me considering the price. Although, I think the uneven texture of the product can sometimes leave a slight uneven amount of product on your brush. I therefore do a forward and backward motion to ensure that I get an even coverage on my brush. I am also impressed with the size of the pan as you don't need a lot of product therefore, I am sure this is going to last for a while before it needs replacing.

This highlighter is not too white, as it has a golden pearlised shimmer running through it. It has a fine consistency which is not chalky, and when applied it looks even and not too chunky in terms of the glitter in it. This highlighter also comes in three other shades Pink Shimmer, Opalescent Amber and Radiant Cashmere. The range definitely has something for everyone depending on what colour you prefer and suits you best. I have really been enjoying using this as you can tell and I think for the price it is a must have for me. As I have said I haven't tried any other highlighters so I have nothing to compare it to. This has definitely reached my expectations, and it has taught me to try something which you are unsure about every once in awhile.

I am absolutely loving using a highlighter now and I would love it for people to leave any recommendations for me as I would like to do some comparison posts in the future.
