So, Urban Decay have just released their new summer 2016 collection, and I have to say, it’s incredible. From the new products to the packaging, everything in it is the definition of covetable, and I’m absolutely in love with all of it!
The product which is probably the one I reach for most out of the collection is the stunning Aferglow Highlighter in Sin. A take on last year’s Afterglow 8 Hour blushes, there are three highlighting shades to choose from: Sin is a neutral champagne shimmer which should suit most skin colours, Aura a pretty pink shimmer, and Fireball which is a warm red based highlighter which should add a glow to even the deepest of skin tones.
Packaged like their namesake blushes, the Afterglow Highlighter promises to make even the most tired of complexions glow, so, as you can imagine, I was absolutely desperate to try it out!
Sin is definitely a highlighter you can reach for daily, and I’ve been loving how easy and buildable the formula is. For day, I swirl a highlighting brush (this one) and the apply a light dusting to my cheekbones, nose and cupids’ bow. For a slightly more night-time look, I use a smaller, more densely packed brush which deposits a little more product.
Since the powder is so finely milled, it’s easy to apply without it looking too shimmery or frosted. Instead, it blends seamlessly into skin, leaving it looking naturally healthy, glowing and perfect for summer!
