The Mua Luxe Strobe and Glow Highlighter Kit

How on earth did we ever do our make up without highlighter and feel okay about it?! I always get super excited about highlighting products more than I do any other make up items. Finding a good highlighter is like finding your perfect LBD or a pair of shoes; it's something special...
Recently I added this MUA Luxe Strobe and Glow Highlight Kit to my collection and I couldn't be more impressed. For just five pounds this has a cream and powder highlighter and comes in really chic packaging complete with a well-sized mirror for on the go touch ups. I think it does come in other shades but this iridescent Pearl Glow shade was my favourite as I think it's wearable on pale and darker skin so can be used throughout the year. I think it's also quite a good dupe for The Balm's Cindy Lou Manizer which I used to wear all the time back when I first started blogging, so if you happen to be a fan of that then you may want to check this out.
In terms of formula it is quite good and certainly very pigmented with such a little product going a long way. I much prefer the cream product to the powder one in all honestly as its more natural and doesn't contain any shimmer. But for certain occasions I've been wearing both together as the cream product really helps to keep the powder in place. I also like that the powder can be used as eye shadow or a nice highlight for the brow bone so in that sense this is a little bit multi-functional.The longevity is by no means the best I've ever tried but it's decent and it really seems to hold up against all types of weather, which is common in Glasgow.
One thing I would say is that the powder highlight is a little too glittery for my liking and less refined than that of some of my other highlighting products. It's still a really nice product regardless but I just prefer powders to be a little more buttery in texture than this is. For the price this is amazing and it would make such a nice stocking filler this year for anyone who really likes make up. I'm also obsessing over the Glow and Gleam Powder which looks amazing and I hope to find that in my own stocking!
What do you guys think of MUA? Would you try this product?

  1. The creme highlighter in this look dreamy, well they both do but I'm with you when it comes to powders, I prefer them a little more buttery and refined.

    1. Awww definitely! I've still been using the powder for my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes and it looks lovely! Can't complain when you think about the price really :) x

  2. Your blog and photos are so dreamy! My favourite so far is the Barry M strobe cream as it gives such a beautiful dewy finish and is less glittery but I feel so tempted to try this, you make it sound and look so beautiful and I'm longing to swatch it haha! :D xx
