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.)

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.
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:

    This product looked so nice when I tried it on the back of my hand in store, but when I applied it at home it just wasn't very pigmented. It really didn't add much color or illumination.

    good highlighter/sample

    By Spanky

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

    Got a sample of this for my birthday month in March. this product is really nice, a shimmery golden and perfect for my dark skin! A lil goes a long way, but if your a highlighter junkie like me sometimes, this is also buildable and goes great as a topper with my other liquid and powder highlights. Would repurchase full sized one, but i havent even put a dent in it yet and its been 8 months. Wonderful product!!

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

          As a borderline highlighter hoarder and addict I have tried pretty much everything. I never bought this because I wasn't that drawn to it until I got a sample. When the sample was gone I had to get a full size. I don't understand why this doesn't have more hype. It lasts all day and melts into skin beautifully. Its actually been giving my Jeffree Star highlighters a run for their money!

            I found this after my favorite highlighter was discontinued and was already a huge fan of their blush. It adds a natural shimmer and is easy to apply. You don't have to use much.

                This product is beautiful. It's soft and creamy and I love the color payoff. I'll be so sad when I run out! It leaves a beautiful gold shimmer on my cheekbones. Definitely one of my favorite highlights.
