Urban Decay Angel is a moderately warm-toned, light gold with a frost finish. It is a discontinued blush that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.23 oz.
Angel is described as a "champagne-nude shimmer." It's a light-medium, golden champagne with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation--not sheer--with a smooth, blendable texture that didn't emphasize pores when applied. On my skin tone, this is a highlighter and not a blush, for reference, but on very fair skin tones, it may act as a highlighting blush (and add warmth without adding orange tones). It wore well for eight hours before fading. Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (PiP, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar).
