Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush

Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush

Urban Decay are throwing out new releases all the time lately and I have to say I was very excited when they released this new line of blushes. I do love a good blush and everyone and their cat seem to loving these so I was very intrigued to try them out.

Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder* blushes come in 12 shades ranging from matte to semi matte to full on shimmer. There is a guarantee shade here for everyone with even very daring shades for the ultimate blush lover. I was sent the shade Quickie which is a bright pink shade, its a blue toned pink and personally it's not a shade I would choose myself however I was surprised at how it looked on my skin. It's basically just looked like a flush of colour peeking through the skin almost like I had stepped in from the cold. Overall a really nice colour and not as scary as it looks.

The blush itself is so soft and finely milled that it goes onto the skin with such little effort. It literally glides across the cheeks and gives an even application and feels really soft on the skin. I am very impressed with this blush, from the application to the way it looks on the skin to the great staying power with around 6-7 hours wear and still looking like I had blush on. The only fault I can see is the fallout when you pick product up, mainly due to the fact that the blush is so soft but I wouldn't be too bothered by that just don't sit on you bed and do you blush with this one..lol.

Now seriously can we talk packaging. It is like Urban Decay have stepped into the makeup future and made all their packaging super funky. It certainly is an eye-catching product. The way the logo is encrusted on top gives it that extra flair. Apparently the lid has been designed so you can see the product inside so you are not searching around your makeup drawer for a certain shade...it's like they know we are blush -a-holics.

In a nut shell I would defiantly recommend these blushes, the quality is there, the pigmentation is spot on, they are a dream to apply and what sells it for me is the longevity of the product. So much so I think I need to go out and buy the peachy/coral one.....send help!

Have you tried these blushes? Would you spend the cash?

These blushes are available now for €28/ £19 / $26 <click the prices for stockists>
