Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter - Sin

I am so indescribably obsessed with this highlighter. It's so gorgeous I want to cover every inch of my face with it and happily walk around like a mini Sun.

It's a light golden champagne shade with rosy undertones and gorgeous frosted finish. The consistency is buttery although it does have more chunky glitter particles running through it which you might be able to see in the swatch. It's beautifully and richly pigmented, semi opaque and it blends and blurs out to complete perfection. It lasted 7 hours on me but began significantly losing intensity after around 5.

It does have one fault however in that it does seem to emphasize pores. I have pretty visible pores on my cheeks right next to my nose and if I drag and blend this too far on to the apples of my cheeks, it makes everything shine like a bauble. If you don't over buff this and try to avoid areas of your face with visible pores you should be fine.

Out of the 3 highlighters Urban Decay launched this was really the only one that appealed to me. Fireball is way too warm for my complexion and although Aura is super pretty, I'm not a huge fan of pink toned highlighters so I probably won't be adding it to my collection any time soon.

Have you got any of these highlighters? Do you plan on getting one?

  4. This highlighter looks so gorgeous! How much was it? x

    1. £19! Which I actually don't think is that bad considering how much ABH & Becca highlighters are. I didn't include a link because it's sold out everywhere at the moment though :( xxx

  5. That looks like an incredible shade! I love Urban Decay products at the moment! I recently picked up the Illamasqua OMG highlighter and that also packs a punch!
