Only in the past year or so I fallen in love with highlighters. For years I tried to give them a go but for whatever reason I had never really liked how they looked on my skin. Nothing pleases me more than a good old bargain (and free shipping of course!) so with 6 shades on offer at just £3 the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighters are a complete steal. On top of this Superdrug also offers 10% discount (with the occasional 15-20%) for all student NUS card holders making them just £2.70 each!

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter | Iridescent Gold, Pearlescent Sheen & Peach Diamond

Whenever I pop into Superdrug for lets call it a "browse" I often notice that the full range of highlighters are not fully stocked, so after planning my outfits for an upcoming trip to V Festival I decided I would like some new colourful highlighters for the occasion. The Superdrug website provides free shipping for Superdrug members, this saves the trip into town to potentially be dissapointed in the poor stock on offer in store, as the website provides all 6 shades (af) within the range. After already owning Iridescent Gold (af) (dupe for Nars Albatross highlighter (af) - £29) for a year or so I decided to try Pearlescent Sheen (af) which I would describe as an ice blue shimmer and Peach Diamond (af) which is more of a pink shimmer rather than the suggested peach shade in the name.

 The highlighters come in a sturdy white case with a clear plastic lid. What I love about this product is that it fits nicely within my acrylic make up draws despite the packaging being quite thick plastic. The highlighter itself is designed with a swirly effect that almost looks too perfect to swirl my Nanshy Fan brush (af - use code HXXOBFC8Y8 for 10% off your order!) around.

A critique I have with this highlighter is it is very difficult to pick up especially for the first few uses. As you can see from the image above Iridescent Gold (far right) is a lot stronger in pigmentation as I have used it several times before. The highlighter itself is quite large weighing at 7.5g (again total bargain!) therefore, takes a while to really dig into the product which is where pigmentation is best picked up.

Personally these highlighters are perfect for a night out/evening look as it something different to my everyday make up. For a day look I often reach for the NYX highlighter in the shade Ice Queen from the highlight and contour pro palette as it is my personal favourite due to it being a lot more subtle.
