Give your skin a luminous glow that won't quit with Afterglow Highlighter Palette by Urban Decay and let 'em wonder what you've been up to. This slim, square palette is loaded with four NEW shades of UD's cult-favorite Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter that look great on any skin tone. Use them individually or cocktail them to create your own custom highlight.

Afterglow isn't your average highlighter; UD 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. This highlighter creates a glowy, strobed effect that lasts all day (even if you feel like crashing at your desk at 3 pm).

Afterglow goes on silky-smooth to create the perfect glow, and never leaves just a powdery dusting of shimmer...it almost seems creamy. It's even infused with light-diffusing pigments to enhance and perfect the skin.

Afterglow Highlighter Palette comes in an iridescent case with a mesmerizing shifty-rose effect. Depending on how the light hits it, the case seems to change colors, and gives off a highlight/lowlight effect. A magnetic closure keeps the palette closed in your bag to prevent makeup mishaps.

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

Shades:
  • Bliss (pale gold w/ golden shift)
  • Peroxide (iridescent pink)
  • NSFW (peachy pink)
  • Side Piece (golden peach)
Apply 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. For that "What, me, a model?" look, apply down the bridge of the nose and along the cheekbones. For a full-on come-hither look, try a little on the Cupid's bow and the tip of the nose. Blend out quickly with your fingertips or a highlighter brush.

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow Highlighter Palette:

This was definitely not my favorite highlighter. Too expensive to not be good lol. It was chalky to me, and I didn't like the colors of the highlighters.

I don't like this palette...just not enough color comes through for me. When I applied more, trying for more color it looked very caked on. Going to return it....sorry.

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow Highlighter Palette:

          I bought this on a whim when it was on sale and have been using it for about 2 weeks now, and it's now my latest obsession. The powder is finely milled and really pigmented so my brush pickes it up easily, and when applied it shines and minimally sparkles. You get a pink, salmon, light gold, and medium gold in this palette, and both golds look the exact same on my fair/neutral skin, but I think that's okay because they're both pretty bomb. Peroxide (pink) is my favorite from the palette but I love them all.

          Aside from all of the praise, this highlight doesn't last long on skin if you're oily like me, or, if also like me, you touch your face a lot. Even with primer and/or a spray fixative (not by UD) I have to reapply after 4-5 hours.
