Just launched from Urban Decay, today you’ll find three gorgeous shades of highlighting powders!
Left-to-right: Aura, Fireball, Sin
As part of UD’s summer collection, it’s all about flawless skin, and making it glow! Whether you like to Instagram-level “strobe” — or if you’re like me and just like to add a few points of light to your face — you should definitely get these on your radar ASAP. I predict these will be super popular, especially once they hit a wider release next month at other retailers like ULTA, Sephora, and select Macy’s locations. Afterglow Highlighters retail for $26 each.
Afterglow isn’t your average highlighter; we 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; our wearable formula always applies beautifully, no matter how much you build it. Available in three shades suitable for any skin tone, Afterglow creates a glowy, strobed effect that lasts all day.
Much like the Afterglow blush shades that were released for last summer’s collection (which are killer, by the way!), Afterglow Highlighter does indeed share a beautifully creamy texture in powder form that doesn’t get overly dusty on my brush. This is a product that requires a light hand for sure, as they are certainly pigmented as promised. In full disclosure, the only shade I wore for an entire day was Sin. The reason is because I fall in UD’s light range in their NAKED Skin complexion products, and I felt like Aura and Fireball looked a little “off” on me. [Read more…]
