I told you I had lots more Urban Decay coming up and today I’m blogging about the Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in Fireball as well as the single eyeshadow in Fireball.

When I saw these new Urban Decay Highlighters, I actually wanted to get Aura, the pink-ish one, but when I hit up my local Debenhams, it was out of stock, as well as Sin. The only shade they had left, and they had plenty, was Fireball. I took one look at the orange pan and decided to skip it, but something called me back to swatch it and turns out, it was my favourite, I can’t understand why that wasn’t sold out too, its beautiful!

The Afterglow Highlighters are I think from this Summer’s collection and retail at £19 each. Sin and Aura seem to be out of stock everywhere, but I can confirm that Fireball is still in stock online at Debenhams.

Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter is unbelievably finely milled, blends like a dream, wears for the promised 8 hours and all three shades are designed to suit all skin tones.

Fireball is a beautiful orangey peach shade, shot through with pink microshimmer, and at a glance it’s not for the feint hearted!

I did think that it might stand alone as a blusher, but it’s too pale and sheer for my tastes. It’s a gorgeous highlight though and I just can’t understand why this one hasn’t sold out too! Buy it now!

Because I loved this so much, when I found out there was an eyeshadow version, also called Fireball, I had to pick that up too!

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Fireball The eyeshadow version of Fireball is from last summer’s collection, but seems to still be widely available from several Urban Decay stockists (£14).

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Fireball The eyeshadow is virtually the same, only richer, more pigmented. It’s a gorgeous coral/orange shade shot through with pink and just perfect for Summer! I also love that you can pop the pan out to go into your Build Your Own Palettes, if you have one.

Urban Decay eyeshadows rarely under-perform and this is no exception, this wears all day, doesn’t crease, and has the impact you’d hope for, it’s full of pigment.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Fireball  I’ve had quite a few Urban Decay palettes, but this is my first single shadow, it hasn’t disappointed.

I’m so in love with Fireball, both in it’s highlight and eyeshadow forms, and it’s definitely going to be my go to colour for Summer 2016.

I’m going to try and stagger my UD posts but coming soon are some of the new Vice Lipsticks, the One & Done Complexion Perfector as well as an eyeliner I picked up.

What do you think, could you be tempted to pick up Fireball this Summer?

    I’m really basic when it comes to makeup so the thought of an orange would terrify me. It’s always great when you like the least favourite as it means there’s more for you! Like the strawberry one from a pack of roses haha

  2. Corinne says:

    They’re both lovely, I think I like the eyeshadow more though. The packaging is gorge!

    The highlighter is SO pretty! I had no idea they have an eyeshadow that matches, that also looks very pretty! The eyeshadow looks perfect for summer 🙂 I also love the packaging.

  8. I love urban decay make up but cant say I have seen these about! Like others have mentioned on the shelf I may have been scared off by the orangeness of it but seeing it against a skin tone makes it look much more subtle!

  9. The Urban Decay products are beautiful on your skin tone! I really need to buy some of their products!
