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.

Lock in any look for up to 16 hours with Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.
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 love this highlight! It's definitely one of my go-to's. I always spray my brush with a little bit of setting spray before putting it on, but it's great without that too.

            I love this as a part of my daily routine to highlight under my brow and into the inner corner of my eye no matter what or if any eyeshadow. I apply it thick with my fingers and love how smooth and easy to apply the product is. This shade is beautiful. I also use this as a highlighter on my face with a brush to add the perfect amount of shimmer to give a glow and brighten my features. My makeup routine takes about 10 minutes thanks to products like these!

              I'm fair with cool undertones, so many highlighters are too orange looking on me, this is perfect, A little goes a long way! I use it everyday, I just apply a little more if I'm going out!!

                I first received a trial size from my Ipsy bag and I fell in love I had to buy the full size and I am so glad I did. It's an amazing color and looks fantastic.

                  I use this highlighter every day for a pop of brightness, but it can easily be built up into something to rival liquid highters
