Urban Decay Afterglow Blush Review

Hello beautiful people! 
I'm sure you have all seen or heard about the new Urban Decay Afterglow Blushes. I love anything Urban Decay so I couldn't wait to get my hands on one of these. 

These retail for $26 and can be found at Sephora, Ulta or UD's website.

The color I chose was called Fetish and it's a neutral pinky mauve color that's matte. There are 12 shades ranging from natural to bright, light to dark, matte to shimmer. 

 Product Claims 
From urbandecay.com

"Lightweight yet luxurious, Afterglow has a soft, creamy texture that always applies beautifully. Our extremely blendable, finely milled formula goes on sheer and provides EIGHT long hours of wearable, streak-free color. 

We finely milled the right balance of coated powders and pigments to create Afterglow’s perfect, super-soft texture. This method results in color that glides on effortlessly and blends beautifully (without the powdery buildup of cheaper formulas). We also infused the formula with light-diffusing pigments to enhance and perfect the skin. "

My Thoughts
-I have nothing but good things to say about this blush. I am in love and it made my favorites list for May! (Video coming soon!)
-I've been using this for maybe 2 weeks now and it's the only blush I've used since I got it. I could tell right away when I used it that it was going to be a favorite of mine. 
-The packaging is beautiful. It has a magnet closure and it's sleek so it's travel friendly. 
-The formula is incredible. It's not overly pigmented so you won't end up with clown cheeks, but there is enough pigment where you don't need to build up the color. It applies super nice and smooth to the skin and is not patchy. 
-I'm super happy with the color I chose. It's a pretty mauve color on my skin that's perfect for everyday. 
-I do agree with the long wearing claims. It stays put on my cheeks all day. 
-I want to pick up more of these someday in the future when my blush collection isn't out of control lol!

  2. That packaging is sleek and sexy! I also love that shade, Ashley and think it will easily suits many skin tone. It's been a very long time since I purchase anything from Urban Decay. No idea why though because I think they are better than Benefit.

  3. UGH hahaha I've been eyeing these since the sephora sale, they released on the last day of the sale and I kinda regret not getting myself one or two... but then again I already own so many blushes! I'm trying to hit pan on one blush before I get another and it's taking SO LONG lol.
