The urban Decay summer 2016 Beached Bronzers and Highlighters Are All That and a Bag of Banana Chips

wearing urban Decay Sun-Kissed Beached Bronzer on my face (and on my eyes in the crease), urban Decay 8-Hour Afterglow Highlighter in sin on my cheekbones (and in the inner corners of my eyes) and urban Decay 8-Hour Afterglow Highlighter in Fireball as a blush
When the fab, trendy seven-year-old in my life (who recently made an editorial appearance in this crucial discussion about unicorns) saw the packaging for the urban Decay summer 2016 Beached Bronzer and Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter, she announced, “It reminds me of the Barbie clothes!”

E sabe de uma coisa?


She was absolutely right!

Urban Decay has an amazing early ’90s 90210/Baywatch vibe going on with these that makes me think of the hours and hours I spent playing with those oh, so early ’90s Barbie clothes — the same ones that my little lady now enjoys (although she says they’re “retro,” *cringe*).

I have such delighted memories of my summers from that time that I’m all about this packaging, but as exciting as it is…the powders inside these terrifically tropical compacts are all that and a bag of banana chips!

Urban Decay Beached Bronzers and 8-Hour Afterglow Highlighters

Brand new for summer and ready to bronze, these $28 urban Decay Beached Bronzers are just as stunning inside as they are out. It’s been a long time considering that I’ve seen packaging this swoon-worthy. Both the box and the compacts themselves are decorated with muted palm trees that look as though you’re checking out them through sunglasses. Ah, I can feel the ocean breeze ideal now…

So, I’m not exaggerating when I say that these are two of the best bronzers I’ve ever tried. Período. fim da história.

Porque você pergunta?

Well, the exceptionally fine, pigmented powder feels smoother than butter, and even though these are pigmented, they’re still easy to blend and build up in layers to whatever level of bronze goddess-ness you desire. Somehow, some way, the powders are matte and luminous, and I can’t believe how natural they look on the skin.

I mean, for someone as pale as I am, I actually look like I’ve been out in the sun and kissed in all the ideal places by a healthy bronze glow, and neither Sun-Kissed norBronze leave behind the tiniest hint of orange powder.

I’m sure you’ve probably heard about the urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighters, because there’s a fierce buzz about these beauties, and with good reason. available in three uniquely glowing $26 shades, these shimmering powders have set many appeal lovers’ hearts aflutter! (Or, as I would have said in the ’90s…these powders are seriously slammin’.)

What I adore about urban Decay is that they always take risks. Although we get a “comfort zone” highlighter in the classic shade Sin, a shimmering champagne that longtime urban Decay lovers will know and recognize, we also hry two absolutely special and “outside of the box” highlighting shades.

Fireball is a warm orangey peach with what the brand describes as a “pink shift.” It looks terrific as a highlighter, but I’m all about using this appeal as a blush.

And then on the cooler end of the spectrum, Aura, an iridescent light pink, reflects slightly blue, and it’s perfection both as a highlighter and as a shadow.

Much like the Beached Bronzers, these highlighters are as smooth and finely milled as can be. All three colors go the distance and wear all day long without rubbing off and leaving bothersome shimmer all over your clothes and hands.

I think the picture below really shows that these highlighters aren’t messin’ around!


Surprisingly, especially after seeing Fireball and Aura in their compacts, all three of these are exceptional for day-to-day wear, either as highlighters, blushes OR shadows — or, for a casual rollerblading session along the beach. (Side note: can we start a petition to bring the ’90s rollerblading in neon clothing trend back? For real, was there anything a lot more awesome??)
