Urban Decay TMI Afterglow 8-Hour Blush ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is described as a “berry.” It’s a muted, medium-dark plum with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. LORAC Chroma (P) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Plum #2 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Does This Thing Really Work? (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Soulmate (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). KIKO 112 Light Plum (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Bitten (LE) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Chanel Plum Attraction (LE, $45.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.” It had semi-sheer to mostly opaque, buildable coverage. The texture was slightly dusty but remained blendable, easy to apply, and didn’t look powdery on the skin. When blended, it doesn’t look totally flat and matte; there’s a very, very subtle sheen to the finish that makes it look like “natural” matte to my eye. This blush wore for eight hours, as promised, on me. I wish there were more shades like this available, because this type of color is harder to find–and so I’d love to see this one get larger distribution (it’s presently an Urban Decay web exclusive).
