Urban Decay Paranoid Afterglow 8-Hour Blush ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is described as a “medium bronze with gold shimmer.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a soft, pearly shimmer. Colour Pop Poolside (P, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC I'll Hold My Breath #1 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Santos (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Zoeva ND030 (P) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Worldly Wealth (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Cheek Pollen (LE, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). NYX Glow (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

Urban Decay’s describes their powder blush formula as having “buildable color” with a “blendable, finely milled” texture that will wear for “eight long hours.” This shade is exclusive to Urban Decay’s website. It had semi-opaque color payoff–it was one of the more pigmented shades in the range–that could be applied with a lighter hand or blended out for sheerer coverage or applied in two to three layers for more opaque coverage. It had a soft, smooth, and finely-milled consistency that wasn’t too soft or too firm. The color applied well and lasted for eight hours on me.
