Beauty Product Review – MUA Makeup Academy Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter in Opalescent Amber

It’s time for another highlighter review! This one is the Makeup Academy Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder in Opalescent Amber. 

As is the story of my life, I was a bit behind with learning about the Autumn trend of the ‘pumpkin spice latte’ highlighter. I stumbled across a YouTube video about it last week and went on the search. The original highlighter is by an Etsy shop called FeatherRiverBody, but is difficult to buy because it’s in high demand (think original rainbow highlighter!). I was delighted to find that Makeup Academy have their own version and it is only Β£3 on the MUA website or in Superdrug stores (they’re currently out of stock online).  

This highlighter has a beautiful pumpkin tone and when it hits the light it has golden flecks running through it also.

I applied the highlighter to the usual areas – 

  • Cheekbones 
  • Bridge and tip of the nose
  • Forehead, above the eyebrows 
  • Cupid’s bow
  • Chin

For only Β£3, there is a lot of high quality product. The colour is absolutely beautiful and unlike any highlighter I own. It goes very well with my neutral toned eyeshadow palettes, like my Morphe 35N. I will say that you do have to apply quite a lot to see the full beauty of it, but as there’s so much of the stuff, you won’t really mind. 

Makeup Academy do other shades of this highlighter –  in pinks and whites – definitely work checking out!
