Wednesday! Middle of the week! How many of you are happy the week is almost over? I’m glad too because I’ll be able to finish decorating our new home! With Summer in full swing, we are all going for the gorgeous sun kissed glow, I just came from the beach look and Urban Decay is giving us that with this new Afterglow palette!

Give your skin a luminous glow that won’t quit with Afterglow Highlighter Palette by Urban Decay and let ’em wonder what you’ve been up to. This slim, square palette is loaded with four NEW shades of UD’s cult-favorite Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter that look great on any skin tone. Use them individually or cocktail them to create your own custom highlight.

Afterglow isn’t your average highlighter; UD took the time to finely mill the powder until it was just right. The result: a lightweight (yet luxurious) feel and a super-soft, creamy texture. Afterglow Highlighter goes on sheer and blends easily. Use a little or a lot; the wearable formula always applies beautifully, no matter how much you build it. This highlighter creates a glowy, strobed effect that lasts all day (even if you feel like crashing at your desk at 3 pm).

Afterglow goes on silky-smooth to create the perfect glow, and never leaves just a powdery dusting of shimmer…it almost seems creamy. It’s even infused with light-diffusing pigments to enhance and perfect the skin.

Afterglow Highlighter Palette comes in an iridescent case with a mesmerizing shifty-rose effect. Depending on how the light hits it, the case seems to change colors, and gives off a highlight/lowlight effect. A magnetic closure keeps the palette closed in your bag to prevent makeup mishaps.The shades are:
– Bliss – pale gold with golden shift
– Peroxide – iridescent pink
– NSFW – peachy pink
– Side Piece – golden peach

The palette is available now only at Ulta and at Urban Decay online and it will cost you $34.00.

What do you guys think about this palette? I like it, I think the shades are semi-universal, I only say that because sometimes they may be too frosty and too frosty sometimes doesn’t look good on deeper skin tones.  Other than that though, I think UD is trying to give NARS a little competition with the names don’t you think?!
