An Urban Decay Afterglow Palette Is Coming to Ulta

By  | 

You already love everything from Urban Decay’s Afterglow line. There’s powder blush and single highlighters that give you that lit-from-within glow. Afterglow products have a creamy texture that blends beautifully, too. Well, we have some good news: an Urban Decay Afterglow Palette is coming — exclusive to Ulta Beauty. And it looks gorgeous.

Ulta Beauty posted the news to its Instagram account yesterday and the photo has already racked up more than 39,000 likes. “Here it is, UD lovers — a new and EXCLUSIVE After Glow palette!! ✨🎉 Blend and illuminate to your heart’s content with four new shades you won’t find anywhere else,” the caption reads. That’s right — all four of the shades in the palette are totally new. There’s Bliss, which looks like a matte champagne highlighter; Peroxide, a shimmery pink blush; NSFW, a bronzing highlighter; and Side Piece, a pale shimmer highlighter. Basically, your entire face is covered.

Many commenters on Instagram have pointed out how similar this palette looks to the Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette. I see where they are coming from, as there are similar highlighting hues, but the palettes do look different enough to pick up both — if you’re highlighter obsessed, that is. Huda’s is a bit lighter, but also has two gold shades, a pink, and a bronze. The Afterglow formula is also different from Huda’s, which is more of a true powder.

You can pick up the Urban Decay Afterglow Palette on June 4 at Ulta Beauty stores and on ulta.com. We’ve reached out to the brand for more information, including pricing, and will update this post when we hear back.
