Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter isn't your average highlighter; Urban Decay took the time to finely mill the powder until it was just right. The result: a lightweight (yet luxurious) feel and a super-soft, creamy texture.

Afterglow Highlighter goes on sheer and blends easily. Use a little or a lot; the wearable formula always applies beautifully, no matter how much you build it. And the shades are suitable for any skin tone. Afterglow creates a glowy, strobed effect that lasts all day - and never leaves just a powdery dusting of shimmer. It's even infused with light-diffusing pigments to enhance and perfect the skin.

Like Urban Decay's Afterglow Blush, Afterglow Highlighter comes in a custom compact with a fishnet "UD" cutout on the lid. To set it apart, UD made the case iridescent white. As cool as the case looks, it's also practical; the shade shows through the cutout. (No more having to open the compact to find the right shade in your bag.)
For the perfect application, dust on a little Afterglow anywhere that the sun naturally hits your face. Dab some around the corners of the eyes and on the brow bones for a wide-awake look. And for a full-on come-hither look, try a little on the cupid's bow too. Blend out quickly with your fingertips or a highlighter brush and you're good to go.

          I love this highlight ! This is definitely the exact shade highlight I had in mind! So happy the beauty consultant at my Ulta swatched it for me. At first I was going to get gilded honey or moonlight , gilded honey was way too gold for me & moonlight was way too light & she showed me sin & that was just PERFECT & exactly what I had in mind!!!

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

            This was a good highlighter, but even with a cream base, i find that this highlighter fades after about 6 hours. It is very blendable, but it is also very powdery and hard to use with a fan bursh. It applies very nicely with the Morphe M510

              I was a little worried about how this product would turn out because I'm fair skinned but it's beautiful and blinding. You do have to kind of layer it to get a bold highlight though.

                Nice highlighting shimmer. Got this to try and replace a Chanel color called Winter Shimmer(?) Wish the soft pink tone stood out a little more for a more blushy look, but the highlight effect is good!
