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.

      The UD Highlighter in Sin is your ultimate champagne light gold highlighter, that will suit every skin tone. It's quite shimmery so it is best to use a light hand, especially on darker skin tones because this highlighter will definitely show up! It instantly brightens your face, and you can build it up if you want a stronger strobing effect. I prefer the natural look, so I dust it on my cheeks and forehead for an instant glow. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

          it barely showed up at all, even after several layers. it was just a tiny bit of glitter, no highlight at all. I have a drugstore highlighter that works way better with the same application.

          I am a huge fan of Urban Decay products. This highlighter does not disappoint me, the color is perfect for my skin tone which is light/medium. It is a very easy to layer this highlighter, I like to be super shiny. lol I give this 2 thumbs up, it's a go to in my makeup routine.
