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.

        Comments about Afterglow Illuminating Powder:

        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.

                  While sitting in the chair at the dentist, I was told over and over how beautiful my skin was and was asked what did I use when I told the dentist and her attendant they were shocked they thought I was living I literally had to show them the actual product!! 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

                      Got the product and it does creates a dewy effect on the face + cheeks, however it is TOO shiny and does not spread well. ALso makes your face paler. Need appropriate brush or blender so you don't walk around with shiny circles on your face.

                                      Liked Pur Radiance much better. Too bad you don't carry pur radiance any more. I hoped this would be similar but it is much more yellow/beige and shiny which leaves a weird color. Was looking for a powder to set my liquid foundation. As it is shiny, I don't find it blends away flaws, rather it accents them. I was surprised by the Sunburn Alert on the back. This was not mentioned on the website that the product contains an AHA which may increase skin sensitivity to sun and possibility of sunburn. I don't waste anything or leave anything unused so I am going to use this for highlighting brow area.

                                        Is this similar to the Mineral Light that you use to carry? I really loved that product and haven't really ever been able to find something comparable.

                                          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!

                                        Q:

                                        Hi. A few years ago, I bought the "Live Laugh Love" and really liked it. I haven't been able to find the kit or the pieces separately. Are the products still available?
                                        Thanks,
                                        C

                                          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!
