Urban Decay Naked Illuminated in Luminous

Highlighters are one of my all-time favourite beauty products, I just think that they're so girly and fun! If you like glitter, then I think you'll love Urban Decay's new Naked Illuminated in Luminous* ($35 CAD). This highlighter has a baked formula and can be used on both the face and body, making it the perfect option for a night out on the town!

"Dust on Urban Decay’s Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body to give you a sexy, just-finished flush. Naked Illuminated powder is first baked on a terra cotta disc for 24 hours, and then it is finished by hand. Baking the powder gives it a high level of just-perfect shimmer, without the metallic look of cheaper formulas. This lightweight, baked powder has a sophisticated microfine shimmer that’s smooth and silky, with light-reflecting particles that leave a luminous, radiant look." - Sephora

I absolutely love the packaging of this highlighter, it's kind of bulky but I don't even care. This rose box has two layers, one with the baked highlighter, and one with a brush. There's a mirror on the inside lid, so you can easily apply this powder on the go. There's a magnetic closure, so the compact won't easily open up in your makeup bag.

Luminous is a beautiful shimmering champagne shade with a fairly heavy amount of glitter. If you prefer a subtle highlighter, this isn't the one for you. This shimmer is very obvious, but I think that it's beautiful. I've been pairing Luminous with NARS' Sin, which is a gorgeous berry blush. This formula is baked, but still has a rich, pigmented formula. I get a full day of wear out of this highlighter, and I love that I can add a swipe onto my cheekbones, and on my collarbone.

Are you as big of a fan of highlighters as I am? If so, you need Urban Decay's Naked Illuminated in Luminous in your collection! There's also the shade Aura available, which is a soft pink colour with golden shimmer, and it also looks beautiful.
