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.” It had semi-sheer to mostly opaque, buildable coverage. The texture was slightly dusty but remained blendable, easy to apply, and didn’t look powdery on the skin. When blended, it doesn’t look totally flat and matte; there’s a very, very subtle sheen to the finish that makes it look like “natural” matte to my eye. This blush wore for eight hours, as promised, on me. I wish there were more shades like this available, because this type of color is harder to find–and so I’d love to see this one get larger distribution (it’s presently an Urban Decay web exclusive).
