Cuneirune

Urban Decay Cuneirune Afterglow Illuminating Highlighter ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium copper with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, so it wasn’t “semi-sheer” as described by the brand. I could use a lighter hand or a less-dense brush to achieve sheerer coverage if desired.

The consistency was firmer in the pan, slightly dense, but it wasn’t thick, so it still picked up well with a dry brush. The powder applied evenly and blended out without much effort on my part, but there was a dryness present throughout the powder that resulted in a shimmer that emphasized my skin’s texture slightly. This shade stayed on well for eight hours (which was the actual wear time claimed!).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Those Afterglow highlighters that were discontinued (without any warning or understandable reason) were so gorgeous. These “replacements” can’t measure up and I really do not like the packaging. Looks like something cheap, meant for young kids’ dress-up.
