Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter

Sin (pale nude w/ gold shift)

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.

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

    I have tried every highlighter from Becca to ABH and nothing would ever show up on my fair skin. I got a sample of Sin in my Ipsy bag, and was BLOWN AWAY! This is the most pigmented highlighter EVER! I am absolutely in love. I will never use another highlighter.

                    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

                    I am fair and got the pink shimmer because I was hoping to recapture an old Chanel blush (winter rose?) that I can no longer find. I have to apply a lot of this before it looks as if I have any shimmer. I guess I was hoping for a more prolific, opaque high shine. This is more of a barely-there shimmer. I like the small, convenient compact - easy to carry - but I think I will heed another reviewer's advice and try applying with fingertips for a more saturating effect and less waste from using a brush.
