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 bought both colors (Sin and Aura) and they are both stunning. On my pale skin Aura gives me a beautiful pink glow that makes me look so sweet! Sin matches my skin? It's about the same color so it makes me have a wonderful natural looking glow. I will use both of these until I hit pan

            Great color on fair skin. Nice natural glowing highlight color that applies easy and stays on all day. I think I prefer a bit of a warmer highlight color than a beige color but this is lovely.

            Best Staying Power Ever!!!

            By Cindy

            from CA

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

            I have this in Aura and Sin. This has been the ONLY highlighter that I have found that stays on all day (powder, liquid, cream, stick). If you are going to buy one I would go with Sin. Sin has a very strong glow. If you want a lighter highlight just go in with a very soft hand. I feel like the color tone of Sin gives the most flattering glow for my skin tone (I wear IT CC in light as a reference). Aura is very subtel. Sin is my every day, go to, holy grail highlighter. If I threw out all my other highlighter and just had to have one, I would keep Sin.

            Sin

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

            Very underrated illuminator. Comparable to Amrezy. Can be subtle or built up to blind. Not gritty at all. Blends into skim- doesn't sit on top. Beautiful. Definitely in constant rotation. Good to mix w/other hl's as well.

              I LOVE this highlighter. It is the only highlighter that I wear that people seem to notice and compliment me on! It goes on easy and lasts through the work day. I'm a fan of the shade Sin because it is most natural for my skin tone. I have sensitive, breakout-prone skin and this does not irritate my cheeks at all.

                I love this product!! I received a sample of it in an ipsy bag, and I fell in love with it! Since then, it has been my go-to natural highlighter. Application is very easy! Though it is powder, it applies smoothly onto the face so it does not appear cakey. "Sin" is also very natural, which I love for a highlight! It looks as if my skin is naturally dewy and shiny right where I want it to be. It matches my skintone perfectly!! I would DEFINITELY recommend!

                  I got this highlighter from an Ipsy bag and I have already hit pan and going to buy this ASAP I love it so much. Amazing if you want a natural look or a blinding look.
