        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 Pur Minerals Afterglow Illuminating Powder:

                        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.

I love to press it into the skin with a beauty blender! Also makes the perfect highlight for your brow bone!

                        This powder was exactly what I was looking for to add that little boost to make my face brighten for the day. Weather I was going to work or out for a night with my husband this finishing powder gives my skin which is average a bright subtle sparkle that really makes me feel pretty and fresh.

                        I purchased this product after having an associate at my local Ulta put it on my cheekbones as a highlighter. I was SOLD! The product adds this beautiful highlight and sheen wherever you put it! It is subtle and not over the top, I actually prefer this product to one I have used for a few years now. I like it as a highlighter as it has a "brightening" effect on the face.

                          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!

                            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!
