Urban Decay Bittersweet Afterglow 8-Hour Blush

Urban Decay Bittersweet Afterglow 8-Hour Blush ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is described as a “bright purple.” It’s a softened, medium purple with subtle, pink undertones and a mostly matte finish. It seems to run slightly cool in undertone, but I think it may depend on what you pair it with whether it will read genuinely cool-toned or not.

NARS Fashion Rebel #2 (LE, $24.00) is similar (also an eyeshadow). MAC Evening Stroll (LE, $22.00) is a cream product. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Quantum & Violet Atom Illuminating Multiple

NARS Quantum Illuminating Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is described as a “sheer iridescent magenta.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pink with cool undertones and subtle silver and pink micro-shimmer. It is sheer, just as described, with a very thin consistency that I found difficult to spread across the skin for even color. The Multiple itself is almost dry with a velvety feel, like a cream eyeshadow that’s on its last legs and has pulled away from the edges of the jar. It seemed more like a blush with a satin finish than a highlighting/illuminating product. On cheeks, it lasted for six hours on me, and on lips, it was a painful two hours before I had to remove it, because my lips were so, so parched. I try really hard to wear things for as long as they’ll wear, drying or not, but I couldn’t make it past two hours – and I suspect it would have lasted around three at most. Clinique Rosy Pop (P, $21.00) is warmer, powder. Colour Pop Clutch (P, $8.00) is brighter. NARS Adoration (Right) (P) is powder. MAC Bred for Beauty (LE) is cooler-toned, powder. MAC Peaches & Cream (LE, $21.00) is powder. MAC Sunset Beach (LE, $32.00) is powder. NARS 413 BLKR (P, $29.00) is brighter, powder. YSL Rose Frivole (02) (P, $40.00) is similar. Clinique Berry Pop (03) (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned, powder. Milani Bella Rosa (11) (P, $7.99) is brighter, powder. Bobbi Brown Summer Pink (LE, $26.00) is similar. NYX Bourgeois Pig (P, $5.00) is powder. NARS Mata Hari (P, $29.00) is darker, powder. MAC Supernova (LE, $27.00) is powder. MAC Weekend Getaway (LE, $22.00) is more muted.
