Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter

Sin (champagne)

Item #: 2302294 Size: 0.23 oz

Options

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.

    Love applying this highlight with my fingertips, rather than a brush. Less waste, and better coverage that .

        A smooth natural peachy blush with pink highlighter glow. Stays on for 12 hours seriously. I use fireball as both a blush and highlighter, one step. Very pleased.

        I adore this highlighter! I got SIN last year. So I purchased FIREBALL! Ooooh, I love it! I wear it with fireball eyeshadow and fireball lipstick! Love the duo chromatic effect! Beautiful peachy pink color and glow! Now I just need AURA and I will be all set.

            Easy to apply. I use this for going out and just a little highlight on my cheeks. It lasts about 8 hours like it is meant to, and I think it is pretty flattering for most skin tones.

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

            I have 2 colors in this: Fireball & Aura. Luv them both! Fireball I luv to layer w/blush. Adds a beautiful "depth" to the blush! The Aura I luv as a "typical" highlighter, under my eyes and top of cheekbones, etc. But both can be used in either of those techniques as well as multiple others. They are silky smooth and do not accentuate my tiny lines or make my under eyes look dry.

                Recommend this highlighter it is AMAZING! I got the shade Aura and it gives you the perfect glow. If you want a natural highlight I would recommend using a light hand with a fan brush.
