5 Beautiful Coral Blushes for Summer

As a coral fiend, summer is often one of my favorite times of the year for new products, because brands tend to release corals, but there are plenty of corals to choose from year-round. Here is my current list of favorites! What are yours?

  1. Urban Decay Quiver — a bold, coral-red
  2. Makeup Geek Love Affair — a warm, pink-coral
  3. Chanel Malice — a luminous coral
  4. Clinique Peach Pop — a shimmery, peachy-coral
  5. Tom Ford Love Lust — a luminous, medium-dark coral

Round-up: Urban Decay Summer 2015 Eyeshadows Overview & Thoughts

Urban Decay Summer 2015 Eyeshadows ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) include eight shades that will be permanent. These are a vast improvement than some of the holiday eyeshadows that came out last year, which I was less enthused about (they were often dry and/or powdery). The six shimmery shades had a really soft, almost cream-like smoothness to them that made them extremely blendable on the skin, while they wore well and had good pigmentation across the board. The two mattes were silky and soft, though Beware didn’t blend as easily as I expected given how nice the texture felt swatched. My favorite was Dive Bar, which was also one of the more unique shades in the range, followed by Fireball.

Round-up: Urban Decay Afterglow Blushes Overview & Thoughts

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a new (well, sort of a re-release, but not quite) and permanent formula that features twelve shades that range from peach to purple to plum. The majority of the range have a satin-matte finish–not really shimmery, but they’re not fully matte, and instead, they have a light luminosity to them–and a few shades had more noticeable shimmer when swatched. However, these shimmery shades were less impressive (with the exception of Rapture) as often the shimmer didn’t bind with the powder so you didn’t see the effect of the shimmer on the skin. The pigmentation is typically semi-sheer to semi-opaque, with some of the richer shades being semi-opaque to fully opaque, which is about what you’d expect, given they’re supposed to have “buildable color.” The powder is thinner with a very silky, smooth consistency that can sometimes kick up some excess powder in the pan, but they look and perform better buffed and blended into the skin. Most of the shades wore for the eight hours as promised. I would love to see more cool-toned neutral shades in the range, and I think the shimmer-based formula could use some improvement.
