If you’re not a highlighter kind of girl or a guy or you, simply find them difficult to use I think you’ll really enjoy the Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter formula. I’m one of those people that love highlighters in theory. I’m a little magpie or at least, I was and I had to own all the pretty highlighter powders. But I never used them! I have a fuller face and I feel like applying a shimmery or glow-y highlighter makes my round face look even round. Kind of like putting a spotlight on all my flaws you know?
No one wants that!
Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter is one of those highlighters that’s actually quite easy to use and doesn’t create so much glow that you’re looking like a disco ball. These come housed in the same compacts as the Afterglow Blush with a fishnet UD cutout lid and a chic iridescent case with a reflective finish.
The After Glow Highlighter formula is quite delightful. It’s soft, almost creamy in consistency with a finely milled texture that didn’t accentuate drier areas no matter how much applied. It’s a bit dusty and powdery but this doesn’t translate as dry in the least, and it blends very, very easily. The colors sheerer but they are easily noticeable in brighter light or sunlight as they cast a beautiful glow on my skin. Fireball is particularly beautiful with a duochrome finish that color shifts in different types of light.
I think the thing I loved most about this formula is the fact that I could be as heavy handed as I wanted and I never once felt I was overdoing things. There’s no chunky shimmer, no glitter fall out, the powder left me a beautiful luminous glow sans all the drama most highlighters bring with them!
If you’re looking for glow but not shimmer or glitter in an easy to apply formula you’ll really enjoy Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter!
