10 Days of MUA - Day 3 - Awesome highlighters for £3

Good evening all, hope you're having a lovely week so far :) I'm just about to have pizza and watch an episode of The Walking Dead  but with the highly likely possibility that it'll turn into a bit of a Walking Dead marathon I figured I best post this first...

Out of the 10 MUA products I'll be posting these are definitely one of my favourites, in fact it would probably be easier for me to tell you what I don’t like about these highlights, which is precisely nothing. They were a bit of an impulse purchase when I was shopping in Superdrug a while back and every time I use them I newly impressed by the quality.
Left: Iridescent Gold Right: Shimmer highlighter
I don’t really favour a shimmery highlighter and my everyday go to one is the gorgeous and (shimmer free) baked highlighter in French Vanilla by Laura Geller but over the last few weeks I’ve found myself reaching for these more n more.
When the light catches these they look gorgeous but not overly shimmery
The packaging is fairly simple - probably not a surprise considering these cost £3 each - but the product is moulded like whipped cream or  pretty folds of silk material which is think is super cute.

The texture is  fine and not too powdery so goes on exactly where you want it and doesn’t create a big glittery mess like lots of similar products. Though, as is always the case with shimmer face products I find this can make my pores look massive if it gets too close to the apples of my cheeks but if I restrict it to the very tops of my cheeks, under my eyebrows and inner corner of my eyes then its grand

With the particles of glitter in this being so finely milled this gives a satin finish to the skin which I think most age groups could get away with; even just as a highlight for the inner corner and beneath the eyebrow these are definitely worth having and with 7.5 grams in each one I think I'll still be using them this time next year

Joy ♥
