Urban Decay Bittersweet is a neutral-toned, medium purple with a satin finish. It is a discontinued blush that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.23 oz.
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. Make Up For Ever S924 Purple (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, brighter, cooler-toned. Too Faced Ooh la Orchid (LE, $16.00) is warmer (also an eyeshadow). 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.
