A Glow From Within

September 13, 2017

Working with a Debenhams round the corner from me is playing havoc with my bank account...

To the touch the Urban Decay Afterglow highlighters feel incredible. The shade I have here is Sin, a champagne/light gold that looks beautiful on fair skin tones. On first application these are far more subtle than something like the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfectors but, they can be built up to achieve a more intense highlight. It's a lot easier to control. 

Now, the website said that the shades are suitable for any skin tone... Am I meant to take that as I can rock the same highlight as a dark skinned POC beauty? I have the shade Sin which I think suits medium and pale skin but deep skin tones it might pull too light. I do think that the shades that are currently available are beautiful... but there are only three. Now c'mon, there are more than three skin tone shades... The darkest shade is called Fireball and it looks stunning. But I can't give a valid opinion on how that would look on dark skin tones. 

I think this is an absolutely beautiful highlighter, I just hope they expand the range of shades soon!

Have you used this highlighter? 

What did you think?

Thank-you for reading,
