MUA Luxe Radiant Illumination Highlighting Kit and Glow Beam Liquid Highlight Cushion

MUA their Luxe line released two new highlighter products. Shimmer and budget proof, something every girl wants right? But are they just as nice as they look? Let's try them out!

The highlight kit has 6 highlighters in a range of different tones, and MUA states that the palette contains both matte and shimmery finishes. Unfortunately though, the palette was such a bummer to me. The highlighters are powdery and look almost invisible on my skin. I had to go over the swatches on my hand again and again just so I was able to show you what the colors look like. I love a subtle highlighter, but none of these are shimmery whatsoever. They look more like setting powders and blushes, that's how matte they are. If you are looking for a good budget highlighter palette I would suggest the Sleek Highlighting Palette Solstice. It's a little more expensive, but looks so much better.

Cushion everything has taken over the world! Each brand is launching their own take on the ''cushion''. The product comes with a little puffer, a cushion base and a little lid to keep them apart. For me this is the star of the show. It is a luxuriously lightweight, gold highlighter. The highlighter looks gorgeous on the skin and gives a nice dewy finish. To use the liquid highlight I suggest using your fingers and dab it on to our cheekbones. The highlighter doesn't set immediatly which gives you enough time to apply it to your own desire. Another option is to use a powder highlighter on top of it to make it exra shiny. Overall it's a nice budget proof liquid highlighter to have.
