staying power

longlasting

it lasts all day and melts into skin beautifully

- Ulta User

the highlight is highly reflective without being glittery, and lasts all night

- Sephora User

blendability

blends well

blends in nicely and looks natural but still a glam glow

- Sephora User

i do not like a blinging, in your face highlight - one swipe of this, blended out gives a soft natural glow

- Urbandecay User

weight

lightweight

i bought the colour sin a couple of months ago and on first occasion wasn't pleased with it as it seemed a bit cakey but later started to powder my face before applying and boy does it give me a glow

- Mecca User

very nice and glowy without being glittery or chunky

- Sephora User

fallout

does not have fallout

it doesn’t have chunky glitter fall out or a very stand out highlighter look

- Sephora User

it's a tad bit powdery but nothing too extreme and it glides on like a dream

- Ulta User

consistency

creamy

the quality of this highlighter is so amazing it quickly became my new favorite and it has such a soft texture to the touch you only need the smallest amount it's amazingly pigmented

- Sephora User

light, texture feels soft and looks beautiful

- Ulta User

texture

smooth

with a perfect creamy and pigmented texture, it is great to use as eyeshadow as well

- Sephora User

i love the texture how it's so smooth and a little goes a long way

- Sephora User

pigmentation

sheer

- Sephora User

it blends well for a nice sheer hint of highlight

Aura is perfect!

Purchased Aura a few days ago and am very impressed. It stays strong all day and isn't overpowering. It is a distinctly pinky-lilacy highlight, very different from all the frost or champagne highlighters you see. I would not call this a natural highlighter at all, especially in natural light, but it IS beautiful! I like wearing it with an otherwise no-makeup look because it's so unique. It makes your skin glow, but with a natural face it sort of just looks other-wordly and like you can't quite put your finger on what is making the skin glow quite that way. It's a powder product, but the texture is creamy/buttery. Goes on very smooth, does not accentuate the flaws in my skin, and blends very nicely. I just wish these came in additional unusual colors. Can we get blue, red, and green highlighters please! I'll be purchasing Fireball as well. :)

Disapointed

I hadn't used any urban decay products before so I thought this would be a good product to start with. I purchased the colour 'Sin'.I have used this product on multiple occasions over a few months, using different foundation bases so that I could give it a fair go/ review.Firstly i'd like to address the 8 hour label, doesn't last 8 hours. The product seemed to fade or just not hold for the whole 8 hours (or even close).Secondly, for a brand that has so much hype at the moment the product didn't even apply nicely to my skin (I have pretty smooth, hydrated and blemish free skin also).. Its just didn't seem to blend into the area, looked cakey in some areas or patchy in others.The product was a lovely colour but upon application was not as pigmented as I expected. Possibly more suited for a person new to makeup whos looking for something more subtle or a fairer skin tone. « less

Just buy it

I'm a highlighter junkie and have bought and used them all, this little love though is the icing on the cake. I purchased this in shade "Sin" which is perfect if I want a soft subtle highlight and a dramatic look.This extremely light weight pressed powder goes on sheer, blends AMAZING, is insanely buildable, will not transfer, and will not spread across your face (unless if that's what you're into).This comes in a chic square compact and I've dropped it a few times but the powder has remained in tact and did not break up. This will create any look your going for without disappointment and blows my two ABH glow kits and my Hourglass glow pallete out of the water. For a remarkable "halo" look this worked best with Yves Saint Laurent's highlighter pen underneath

Sheer cool toned highlighter

Aura is my all time favorite shade to use with blue based blushes. I have very cool toned skin and this highlighter works perfectly. It doesn’t have chunky glitter fall out or a very stand out highlighter look. It blends well for a nice sheer hint of highlight.

Excellent highlighter imo! Stays on nicely through even a long shift of work ( I work as a waitress in hibachi and at a brunch restaurant, so work-proof makeup is a must ). Really nice shade that blends well!
