I’m so excited to review this item for you today- the Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Blush. I was killing time one day and ended up in Sephora (typical) and started swatching these blushes. When they first came out I was a bit hesitant to try them because the colours are just SO intense. I was worried they wouldn’t be wearable until I saw the perfect nude shade.
The formula of these is the most suede-like powder I’ve ever felt from a blush. I swatched multiple shades and found them to be very consistent in texture/pigmentaion. I knew it was love. These blushes are supposed to have an 8-hour wear and come in 12 shades. I bought the shade ‘Video‘ for $31CAD.
-Lasts the full 8 hours as claimed (longer w/ setting spray)
-Unbelievably suede-like formula that blends well
-Very wearable everyday (and night!) colour
-This shade matches with every single makeup look I’ve done
-No mirror in the compact
Honestly I’m so in love and if this had a mirror in the compact I would’ve given it a 5/5. The way I do my makeup I always face daylight, and built-in mirrors come in handy when I’m in a rush. I’m usually hesitant to spend over $30 on a blush, buuuuut it tends last forever.
I’m an avid coral blush type of girl, but gloomy weather had me seeking a neutral shade and this is the PERFECT everyday colour. My god, everyone needs this blush. While Tarte’s Amazonian Clay blushes are a cult favourite, the formula of Urban Decay’s Afterglow Blush is its hotter cousin.
