Product Reviews | Urban Decay After Glow 8 Hour Powder Blush in Kinky ($26, Ulta)

Product Details (from Ulta's website): Get all-day radiance and streak-free color with Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush by Urban Decay. The foolproof way to create that effortless, radiant look, this extremely blendable, finely milled formula goes on sheer and provides eight long hours of wearable color from pink to mauve to red-orange, there's something for everyone.  Not only does Afterglow look amazing on the skin, but you'll look good using it. The gorgeous, custom gunmetal compact features a see-through fishnet "UD" cutout on the lid (so you can easily see the right shade without opening the compact).

Review:  I have not tried any blushes from Urban Decay before so when it went on sale at Ulta for $15, I did not hesitate to pick it up.  It swatched really nicely at the store as a bronzed peach shade with very fine shimmers.  The quality of this blush is pretty good for its sale and retail price.  The powder is very soft and creamy.  It applies evenly and it is also easy to blend.  It says that it applies sheer, but mine just has the right amount of pigmentation but it is definitely buildable if you want an more intense color on the cheek.  This blush is long-wearing and stays on all day (typical work day of 8 to 9 hours plus a few more hours after work).  I like the iridescent reflective purple box with silver typography.  The gunmetal casing is also sturdy which makes for a much better quality.  Overall, I enjoy using this blush.  I have not tested it during the hot summer months as I do not wear as much makeup when it is hot (in general, I always wear light makeup but even lighter during the summer).  Would I repurchase? Yes.
