Oh my goodness! This news is almost too good!! We have Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter on the way and there are three shades to choose from. I know I need them… They take their inspiration from the gorgeous Fireball eyeshadow.

The Afterglow blushers from UD are really good. The shades are stunning and the powder last really well on the skin. I have a full post on those with all the shades swatched here.

The Afterglow formulation is gorgeous. The powders are extremely finely milled, the texture is smooth and creamy, and the pay-off is weightless and sheer. They use light diffusing pigments to give a soft glow and are formulated to last 8 hours. Wonderful.

Wende, Urban Decay’s founder say she uses Fireball everyday for “the most beautiful glow”. She adds that Aura and Sin create a “gorgeous strobe”. It is fair to say that I am positively obsessed with highlighter (I almost feel naked without it), so I am definitely going to need these in makeup arsenal. 100%!

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter launches in March 2016 in the US and I’d imagine the UK will follow soon after as they are part of the Summer 16 collection.  UPDATE! Find it HERE US readers. In the UK you can find all the colours HERE.
