MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter - £3, available here

There's been a lot of talk of this MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter being a dupe for MAC's Soft & Gentle so when I saw it in my local Superdrug, reduced down to a bargain £2 I just had to get it! I already own Soft & Gentle (review here) so I was keen to see how the two compare for myself. 

"Undress your Skin Highlighting Powder is 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."

I was impressed with the packaging and aesthetics of the highlighter, it definitely looks a lot more expensive than it actually is with it's 3D design which is reminiscent of an older MAC product. The packaging is just a basic white but is very sturdy and I can't see myself breaking it in my handbag any time soon.

The highlighter itself is a cool toned beige with a hint of pink which looks great when applied to the cheekbones and down the nose where the light would usually hit. The tiny particles of shimmer give a great subtle glow which is great for work or any time you don't want to look too made up. It's the perfect shade of highlight for my pale skin but I can't see it working on anyone with a much darker skin tone than me. It lasts all day on top of my foundation so it's definitely worth the £3 price tag!

Have you tried this highlighter? Would you like to see a post comparing this and Soft & Gentle?


  1. I would love to see a comparison post! I already have this and love it - soft and gentles a teeny bit out of my budget right now :( Have you tried the Sue Moxley Famous baked bronzers? They are very like the MSFs :)

  2. I really want to try this but seeing as I have Soft and Gentle I wouldnt want to neglect that! Beth May Blogs

  3. This is such a dupe for MAC Soft and Gentle it looks so pretty! i think this would be a great alternative for those who cant afford MAC

  4. I've heard about this sooo much and it looks great! But sadly we don't have MUA in the US... makes me jealous :P

  5. I quite like this despite not being an MUA fan. Whenever I put it on my nose people say it looks more piggy and upturned. Must work then!
