Urban Decay Bittersweet Afterglow 8-Hour BlushUrban Decay Bittersweet Afterglow 8-Hour Blush ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a medium, magenta pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is lighter. ColourPop Thumper (P, $8.00) is lighter, cream. ColourPop Mochi (P, $8.00) is lighter, warmer, cream. ColourPop Pie (P, $8.00) is darker, cream. ColourPop Homie (P, $8.00) is darker, brighter, cream. LORAC Unashamed (LE) is darker. NARS Roman Holiday (LE, $30.00) is lighter. Surratt Beauty Se Pomponner (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter. Milani Delizioso Pink (10) (P, $7.99) is very similar. Urban Decay Quickie (LE) is slightly less cool-toned. theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Peony Petal (P, $21.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to have “buildable color” and wear for “eight long hours.” It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three passes of product. I didn’t feel like I needed to pack it on for it to show up on my medium skin tone, so fairer and deeper complexions should be able to adjust their application to easily use this as they desire. It seems very versatile as a result of that buildability, combined with how blendable and silky the texture is. In the pan, it seemed almost powdery, but on the skin, it seems to almost melt into the skin and gives a natural matte finish, where skin still looks like skin and not totally flat. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours.

I don’t really gravitate toward this color, so I’m hoping another color in the range that’s more my speed performs this well. Fingers crossed!

I love this sort of shade but I’ve so many similar colours (I’d add MAC’s Her Blooming Cheek as dupe or perhaps a possible dupe) so I’ll pass…it’s not a shade of which I need more.

I love your whole look here! Brings out your eyes just beautifully..Nars Angelika was a long time favorite of mine until I started to feel like the shimmer was a bit too much. So, I have been looking for a shade similar without shimmer. Would you opt for this or one of the other dupes you pulled?

Christine, do you have the same blush on both cheeks in your makeup look? They look different to me! Thanks! Oh btw – loving the cotton candy colored eye look!!!! πŸ™‚

Ooo what a pretty pink! I usually gravitate towards peach and orange blushes but this looks like it’ll look so pretty on me

Beautiful look, Christine! The blush looks perfect with your shadows and lips. I’ve heard such great things about the new blushes and now your A. I wish I wasn’t so devoted to cream and stick blushes, but I am.

I tried to order this during the Sephora sale, but it wasn’t available on their website yet. I might also check out the Colour Pop dupes as they are cheaper and cream blushes tend to last longer on me.
