Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush is a blush that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.23 oz. ($113.04 per ounce). There are 27 shades in our database, which you can select from in the View a Shade dropdown menu below or jump to these sections: Review, or Description.
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.” A lot of the shades have semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation but a few have been more pigmented than buildable, though a lighter hand is always one route to take to get sheerer coverage if that's a must-have.
The texture of the blushes is smooth, silky, and finely-milled with a thinness that gave me pause initially, but it translated to a beautiful, satiny finish on my skin that was natural and lightly luminous. The majority of shades I've tried in the range are blendable, easy to use, and wear for eight hours.
The average rating based on all reviewed shade(s) in this formula is shown below.
We’ve all seen what happens when bad blush happens to good people, and it isn’t pretty. But you don’t need crazy skills to fake the perfect flush; you just need the right product. Urban Decay introduces Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush—the foolproof way to create that effortless, radiant look. Just a few quick swipes of Afterglow gives you the kind of easy, sexy, lit-from-within glow that makes people wonder if you spent the whole weekend in a secret love den. The best part? Much like the lingering effects of a romantic rendezvous, Afterglow won’t quit. Our extremely blendable, finely milled formula goes on sheer and provides eight long hours of wearable, buildable color. And wait until you feel it! Lightweight yet luxurious, Afterglow has a soft, creamy texture that always applies beautifully. The lineup: a dozen scintillating shades…some with a matte finish, and others with a hint of shimmer.

I really like this blush not only because the color is beautiful, but the pigment is also not overpowering where I can actually build the color while still looking natural. I find it actually stays true to its claim which is "8-hours long" because I notice that the color always fades when it hits the 8-hour mark. Overall, this is a great staple of a high-end blush for those who still want that flush but natural looking ones.

I have pretty light skin (NC20) and this hardly showed up on me. Be aware that it's a very light color, suitable for the fairest skintones. Layering it on heavily, it showed up as a light flush. It was blendable with a natural finish but had a powdery/chalky texture. This is a decent (no pun intended) color, but quite sheer.

Excellent pigmentation and lasting power. Unfortunately, it goes patchy on me.

I love the formula and color of this blush. Applied lightly it gave my cheeks a beautiful and noticeable pop of color, but not dramatic at all. This blush feels very soft in the pan and looks very much like my skin when applied, as if it's a stain. It was looking good for longer than 8 hours.

Fair-skin friendly, it's a blush I enjoy using when I go for a elegant/sophisticated look.
It blends effortless into the skin and the pigmentation is easy to build.

Rapture was my first purchase of the new UD blush formula. I was torn between this and NARS Sin, which I've craved for years but which never really looked "right" on me. Rapture seems very similar in colour but it just looks better once applied and seems to have a better texture. This may have been my first purchase but it sure won't be my last.
