When I saw MUA had released a new loose powder highlighter as part of their new Prism range, I just had to give it a try. I don’t actually own any of these types of highlighter, so have been very intrigued to see what the excitement is all about. Firstly, I was surprised by the size of the pot it came in – it’s a decent size! There is 18g of powder inside too, which is a lot as it is very finely milled. I love the lid of the pot too – so sleek and classy in black plastic with holographic font on the top. It looks beautiful when it catches the light. Under the lid is a little sifter, perfect for controlling the amount of powder that comes out.
On first glance the powder looks white, but when you look closely it reflects pink in the light. A little goes a long way with this product. I poured the tiniest amount of it onto my hand for the swatch below and it seemed to blend out forever!
Yesterday morning I got the urge to create a pretty Halloween makeup look and this highlighter was perfect for the occasion. I attempted mermaid makeup and used the highlighter over pretty much all of my face. I applied it to the high points of my face as per, but then added a bit less product around these areas. I was absolutely blown away by the quality of this highlighter, especially considering its very low price tag of £5.
