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.

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

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter:

          This is definitely a pretty highlight, but it isn't blinding. If you want a more subtle glow this is for you.
          You have to really build it up to get it to be very noticeable, and it wipes off very easily.

            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

            from Chicago

            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!!

              I first got this stuff in my Ipsy bag and since I used it up I had to get this stuff as well. I love it. It's not over the top and lasts all day. I will continue use this stuff ❤
