Urban Decay Cuneirune Afterglow Illuminating HighlighterUrban 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!).
