Highlighter can completely change your look if applied properly. I am a highlighter girl and I have been using the benefit high beam since long. But because I apply highlighter almost daily I found the benefit once expensive, I was looking for a cheap powder highlighter and thus I ended up getting “MUA Shimmer Kiss Bronzer – Bronzed”. Today I’ll share my opinion about it with you all.
I’ve been using it since one year now and I still haven’t hit the pan because very little is required to get the highlighting effect. I like applying this highlighter on my bridge of nose, forehead, and sides of my eyes in a “V” shape so it also gets applied on high points of cheeks.
Packaging: MUA Shimmer Kiss Bronzer comes in a square packaging with a transparent lid on top. The lid shuts tightly making the powder securely protected and it won’t open up while travelling on its own. The pan is small in size so you basically can’t use the shades individually.
Texture: The powder is finely milled so it’s easy to apply. The texture is silky-smooth and it picks up easily with a brush. I usually use my blush brush for application. It’s very blendable and also buildable so you can build it accordingly.
Shades: I loved the color combo, four different shades in a single pan. You can use the shades differently or you can swirl your brush all over the pan and can apply it. The shades will suit most skin tones perfectly. The top left and bottom right shades are perfect for highlighting whereas the top right and bottom right are perfect blush shades. It doesn’t have any chunks of glitter, just a beautiful champagne hue which looks really natural. However the small size makes it difficult to apply the three shades separately. I seriously don’t know why they have named it as “bronzer” its’ not a bronzer it’s a highlighter.
Performance: It doesn’t have any sparkle which is big plus for me. Obviously you don’t want to apply glitter all over your face for the glow. Glittery highlighter not only looks unnatural but they also give you the opposite effect of highlighter. This one gives you natural glow and it looks like you are glowing from within. It gives a very subtle sheen when light catches it. I use it lightly for day but during night I build it little more for more “glowing” look. The glow it gives is simply gorgeous for day or night. I receive compliments when I apply it and people start asking my secret of having a glowing skin. It gives me a dewy finish without actually my oily skin oilier, isn’t it great? It works really well for my skin type and lasted for 5-6 hours before starting to fade. It’s just perfect for days when you feel your skin is looking dull because it makes skin radiant and awake.
Overall I absolutely love this highlighter it makes my skin dewy and luminous and healthy.
