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).

This is gorgeous! I have a free e/s single waiting on UD.com for my Feb bday. I think I’m going to have to snag this up and take advantage of that offer!

You can pick any one you want including the moon dust formula! You have to create an account with their new “Junkies” program first. But, since my Bday was beginning of Feb, I got the promotion right away. Free Shipping too no on any amount once you sign up !

This shade is lovely! Something very “natural” in the sense that when most people flush, their cheeks usually do turn more this shade than say, bright fuchsia or orange. I’m seriously thinking of getting this one! ?

I almost bought thus the other day, and now that I’ve seen your review/swatches and signed up for UD “beauty junkies” I’m totally going to get it (and not have to spend $50 to get free shipping ha).

This looks like the perfect mix of plum and red, will go well with all my fave lippies! And harder to dupe. Why only exclusive to UD site?? Looks like I need to check this one out

Love this color. Not certain if this is the one I own. It may be. Whichever color I own, I to looked the application, finish and color.

I love this color. I have two blushes really similar to it that I rarely wear, though, because I have to be SO careful during application. Sigh… It looks beautiful on you, Christine! Not jealous… (totally jealous!) 😉
