I’m glad that they’ve finally come out with solo blushes, but the texture looks like it leaves something to be desired πŸ™

It’s definitely been a hole in their range for awhile! I know they put out the Naked Flushed palettes, but that’s not quite the same as a blush formula!

Wow these are so pretty! I love the range of colours, but they look kinda powdery. I look forward to your review, and thanks for getting the swatches up so quickly!

Well that’s not fair, they’re all beautiful! Rapture might be my favorite from the swatches although I’m more drawn to the bright pinks and purple! Gorgeous.

Quite a nice mix of neutrals and brights! I liked Fetish, Crush and Score. I really like how Rapture looks on you – its a color that looks a bit dull in the pan but so luminous and pretty on the cheeks!

Wow, see and I thought it was a blush palette, lol. Got a bit disappointed after finding out it wasn’t. But they look beautiful and promising!

Every single one of these looks stunning on you, Christine. You seem able to wear warm and cool tones equally well. I really like the look of Rapture – it’s a bit different for me and not like a shade I would usually buy but I think I just might spring for this one. I also really like Obsessed, Quickie and Afterglow but those are more like shades I already own (in quantity!) so don’t really need them (or so I tell myself!) but I really want to check out Rapture.

Thanks, Mariella! I think it helped here that I did the warm blushes with the warmer gloss, then cooler blushes with the cooler gloss!

Wow! I would love to check these out. I loved Lounge, Paranoid, X, and Fetish. Ran out of most of my backups and moved on to NARS. I can’t wait to see these in person. I loved them, but I didn’t like the newest versions with a highlighter and bronzer. I wish they would bring back the old Baked Bronzers, they were lovely!

I think it was because of the whole Naked introduction. The Baked bronzers were really my favorites, and I liked all three. The matte bronzer never looked muddy on me, but other brands do.

I am LOVING the purple blush trend that’s going down this season!! I got Rain from ColourPop yesterday and LOVE it!! Bittersweet looks SO beautiful!! Thanks for the swatches, Christine! I can’t wait to hear the formal word on how they perform for you!!

That’s so funny! I remember you talking about how you wanted Urban Decay to come out with blushes or was it TF?) and now they did! They probably listened to you πŸ™‚ If I get the chance, I will swatch Rapture, Bittersweet and Fetish for sure!!

I did! Although, I wanted the formula to be more like their best eyeshadows (read: denser, more buttery), but it’s still good to see them put out a real blush range.

They have a really, really different texture – I don’t think the formulas are comparable, just because they have a different feel and finish, though I’m sure some colors overlap!

I can’t wait to get my hands on that purple blush! Not enough companies come out with purple blushes, so I buy pretty much every one I see!

I want Bittersweet and a few more, been looking around for a purple blush that’s wearable. Hope it reviews well! So glad they came out with some matte options and the shimmery ones aren’t glitter bombs.

Bitter Sweet is the one that caught my eye, can’t wait to try it! I’ve been searching for a nice purple blush on to compliment my yellow skin tone for awhile, Marc Jacob has one but the formula is not that interesting to me so I hope this one will be the one I am searching for. Thanks for your great swatches πŸ™‚

I’ve been wanting a blush like Bittersweet for awhile! Soooo gorgeous! Bittersweet, Rapture, and Quiver will be mineeee come the 15th!

Wow! I need Bittersweet and Rapture in my life. I’m so happy to see UD come out with blushes, including some non-traditional colors.

So far, Rapture and Crush have my attention….but I will sit tight and wait on your reviews of these before I commit to any of these. Like others have noted, there seems to be a powdery-ness with these in the arm swatches, although applied on your cheek they appear lovely.

There are a couple that run too cool for me, and some of the pinks are quite similar, but I’m going to want most of these. An actual purple! And a red! And Bang! Yay!

I really love the way Obsessed is looking. I’m curious about how Rapture would look on my VERY pink undertones and wondering if I could apply Bittersweet with a light enough hand for my fair skin. Looks like I’m going to be visiting Sephora in the near future! All of these blushes look so great on you. You can make almost everything work with your skin tone and I am envious!

Most of the shades look dupable but I love that packaging. Looking forward to full reviews. Might have to pick one up!

I just recently became obsessed with UD and this summer line is looking amazing!! I want all of these! The swatches look great, thanks for sharing!

Your swatches are lovely and I am very excited to see these in stores.

One thing I keep getting hung up on though is that the Afterglow blush line isn’t new…this is a relaunch. UD had a line of individual blushes called Afterglow just a couple years ago (I’ve been rationing Quickie every since it was discontinued so I’m SO GLAD it’s coming back)

Either way though, this is good news! Thanks for sharing!

If I own fetish and quickie from the Anarchy Face Case, would you say that I wouldn’t need to purchase the afterglow blushes with the same names? Are there differences?
