Review + Swatches: MUA Undress Your Skin Illuminating Foundation

This foundation's been around for a while now and actually I've been wearing it on and off for months now! In the last couple of weeks I've being wearing it a lot more though so that I can solidify my opinions on it, so I can give you a proper review! I know a lot of people are put off by cheap foundations, and granted there's definitely some bad ones out there, but there's also some gems that I couldn't be without! This one however... 

As always I've included a summary at the end :) 




The Basics
This foundation comes in a squeezy tube, which has really thin packaging, which a. feels cheap and b. can be a pain when getting product out. Inside though there's a very decent 35ml of product. The foundation in available in 3 different shades - which is very restricted if you ask me! The shade I have is Porcelain, which like the other shades sells for £5. 




What did I think? 
Despite the limited colour range (and that I bought this online!), this is actually a really good colour match! It also applied with a fairly satin finish - so not matte, but maybe not quite what you'd expect from a illuminating foundation. But either way when first applied I do like the finish. However about 4 hours (this varies slightly depending on the primer used) later my skin looks pretty oily - which is pretty unusual for me. So definitely a foundation for those with drier skin. This also has quite a runny formula, so applies quite thinly feeling very light on the skin. Light to medium coverage




The Good - Cheap, 35ml product, looks really nice once first applied. 

The Not so Good - Makes my skin quite oily, only 3 colour options, the packaging is flimsy. 

Would I Repurchase? Probably not - I will be sticking with my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation. 

Price & Availability - £5, Superdrug & MUA's Website

I'm slowing working my way through my reviews now and getting back to my normal blogging self! It feels good! Is it just me that didn't really get on with this foundation or did you find it similar? Talking of foundations, I'd love to hear what your favourite one is!

  1. I love the luminous finish of this foundation! But hate the poor staying power. Anyway, love your eye makeup. What's the blue eyeshadow? I'm a hugs sucker for that kind of color :p

  5. I never buy MUA foundations because they seem to always break me out (which never happens with a product!) and they never seem to look well on my skin they seem really oily too..:( I prefer other brands like Maybelline for my foundation but this one looks ok!

    1. This is the first MUA Foundation I've tried! I haven't tried a Maybelline one though I may have to go and see what they have to offer after that recommendation!
