I was looking for something to give my skin a subtle glow, not shine, but just a light natural shimmer - and this does exactly that. It is great because you can dust your face lightly for just a subtle shimmer or add more for a real summer glow. It is not irritating at all and it wears well - lasts all day. Great all over the face & neck, or just on the eyes or whatever - it is versatile. The size warrants the price in my opinion. Very happy, and will reorder this product so I hope this stays in the PÃ1/4r Minerals line for quite some time.

this product is a highlighter and not an illuminator. Illuminators are suppose to be used all over the face and they are suppose to blur imperfections. If you use this product in this manner, you will have a very shiny face as this product is very pearlized. There is so much shine to the product that it emphasizes wrinkles and pore size rather than blurs it. It also has a very beige/yellow base which can make you look sallow if you are not careful. Upside to this...I have enough highlighter to last me into the next century as the product is packaged in the same sized pan as the marble powders. Product should be relabeled as a highlighter.

    This highlighter is great because it provides a noticeable radiance without looking overly unnatural. It's also not too metallic and doesn't have chunky glitter.

        My favorite thing is that it can be subtle enough to just a give you a glow or can be beaming if you add more! It also doesn't emphasize imperfections on your cheekbones. Both of those make it a winner!!

          Comments about Afterglow Illuminating Powder:

          I love this product! Those who don't love it usually overuse it on their face. Please understand it does a BEAUTIFUL job giving a lovely sheen to your cheeks, but don't put it everywhere on your face--just the areas you wish to highlight, like your upper cheek area and even as a lid shadow highlighter. It really makes your skin look silky and lustrous!

          I love this product. It's soft and you can see the light glow in the palette but it's barely noticeable on the face so you can apply it all over without looking like a disco ball. Great packaging other then a mirror would have been nice.

          I'm not sure about this product yet. I was excited to try it but I agree with some of the other comments about it being very shiny. However, it may be that I'm not applying it right. I would love some advice about application from the professionals at Pur.

I love the compliments I've gotten since trying this and will make this a keeper In my makeup regimen. It has flawless coverage and gives you just the right amount of glow to your skin and makes your skin look flawless covering imperfections at the same time.....LOVE IT

                  Dear PUR Beauty, PUR Radiance was a lovely complexion enhancing powder! I too, used PUR Radiance at one time as my last "little touch" over top of my 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup. PUR is consistently launching new products so checking back with us! I will share that after applying my 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup as my foundation, I will often times use a powder brush with my After Glow illuminating powder and mix with a little of my pressed powder foundation to achieve a softer diffused look when applied across the forehead, down the nose and above the cheek area. It just adds that "little extra something" to the over all look!

                  Hello Pur Beauty! Afterglow can be worn on all shades tones. But the key is application! As a highlighter, I like to use Afterglow with the Pur Minerals crease eyeshadow brush. I find the less dense brushes allow me gradually build the intensity or keep it sheer on the skin. It only takes a small amount of Afterglow. I find I can even get too impatient apply too much before realizing! So be light handed at first and sweep and buff the color into the skin. Sometimes I will use Mineral Glow as a highlighter using the same application technique for under the eyes, cheek bones, nose, chin and forehead for shades deep & deeper. Mineral Glow is warmer as appose to Afterglow being more yellow. Hope that answers your question! Before you know it, you will be a highlighting pro!

                  Afterglow is a highlighting powder our Pur Pro Artist use to provide a celebrity glow to the skin. Where Mineral Light had more of a white pearl finish, Afterglow illuminating powder has a softer more champagne candle light glow finish. It is universally more complimentary on the skin tone when using as a complexion highlighter, or on the brow bone as a highlighter. It is absolutely gorgeous!

                  Afterglow is used as highlighter or illuminator just as Mineral Light, the difference is, Afterglow has more of champagne, soft candle glow finish. Therefore, it is universally more complimentary on the skin. It can also be used on the body!

                  Hi Rylie! No, Afterglow is more of an illuminating, highlighting powder, but you should definitely check out our Balancing Act powder. It's a customer favorite! Balancing Act is a translucent, pressed powder that sets makeup and controls shine. It appears marbled in the compact-a mosaic of neutral looking hues, but applies completely translucent. My favorite thing about the powder is that it is so light: it never cakes up. And, no matter how many times you use it (to touch up) it never covers blush or bronzer, washing you out. Truly, it's one of my favorite products-along with several professional makeup artists. I hope this helps!

                  Hi Candice! We do actually still make the Pink Marble powder that you would use for blush and the Mineral Glow bronzer (one of our bestselling products). The only powder that is no longer available is the Pur Radiance highlighter which looked like a pale pink in the pan. If you're looking for a lovely highlighter we recently came out with Afterglow which is really stunning-a beautiful pearly shade that's not glittery or overly frosted. I hope that helps!
