Product description

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 to give your skin a luminous, illuminated look with very little effort.

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.)

- Sin: champagne
- Fireball: peach with pink shift
- Aura: iridescent light pink


Pro Tips

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. Or apply Afterglow down the bridge of the nose and in a “C” shape from the temples to the cheekbones. 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.

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 291.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the very best highlighters This is one of the smoothest highlighters I have used. No glitter chunks. You can build it if you want a glow you can see from Mars. You can use a light hand and wear it to work. I have all three shades and I am extremely fair. Fireball is a gorgeous blush topper for me. It would be gorgeous on deep skin tones. Urban Decay never disappoints. I have some high end highlighters and I reach for these on a regular basis. Also the packaging is gorgeous and so travel friendly. I ended up buying a couple of the blushes because I loved the packaging so much. They last and have a nice tesxture, don't emphasize your skin's texture. I have only good things to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fireball- most unique highlight shade Not a huge fan of the crazy highlight trend as I find most of them too glittery for my liking. I do not like chunks of glitter everywhere, but fireball is more subdued and subtle, and the pink duochrome makes it such an interesting highlight. I think all the champagne/gold tones on the market look alike and anything icy pink does not go well with my complexion. It looks more peachy orange in the pan, but swatched and on the face it looks more pink (due to the duochrome). This is good for someone who is not a fan of glitter as it gives off more of a sheen [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought All Three I love these highlighters so much I bought all 3. They add such a subtle glow that is not over the top and office safe. I build it for a more dramatic look for evening wear. They wear well on me for about 9 hours before fading. My favorite is Sin. It just makes you glow. The case is well made and durable. I apply the highlighters with a highlighter brush made to not pick up too much. My biggest fear with highlighters is looking washed out because of my pale skin. These don't do leave a lot of "white" to show in pictures and the sun. Great product all around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing glow but skin rashes I love this product, from the day i bought ive been obsessing over it and been about 2 months. I cant tell you how much i love this product, the glow is just oomph, perfect for summer. However ive developed bumps on my cheekbones where i use the highlighter, and they havent gone for 2 months. I love this product immensely though i am not a 100% sure if its from this product or a BB cream product im using, but since i use my highlight exactly in this area, ive concluded its the highlighters fault. Love the product though it reacted to my skin and my skin is not even that sensitive, so im not so satisfied. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful highlighter I have this in all three colors. Of the three I think fireball is the most unique. It's a really pretty peachy color that shifts to pink depending on what angle you look at it and it's quite pretty. Sin and aura are also very pretty and create the most natural glow. I've never really been in to highlighter but these are so easy to use. They last all day and don't emphasize pores. I've had a ton of people comment on how glowy and nice my skin looks but it never looks overdone. I love these. I'd love to see UD release more colors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing glow! I got the color sin and this stuff is amazing it beats Anastasia glow palette by miles because all you need is one amazing luminizer not 4 and it also beats BECCA by light years. I will never be without this stuff! It's so perfect. Not glittery at all. Just the perfect almost sheen to your skin. Now UB please make it in a liquid to and Im done and sold. Best UD product yet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sin like an angel I love this highlighters so much I received it for free as a birthday gift and im so glad I did. Sin has such a subtle glow that is not over the top and is perfect for day or builds it up for night out on the town. Sin wear well for about 6-7 hours before fading but that’s because I work at a high paced job. It just makes you glow like an angel. The case is so amazing, it sturdy and heavy duty , not a cheap lightweight product. Although im not a huge fan of the crazy highlight trend as I find most of them too glittery for my liking, the color sin has a soft sheer finish with a subdued look.
