Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush In Fetish Review and Swatches

My blog buddy Ashley of Ashley Sue Makeup, sent me a lovely parcel of gifts in 2015. One of the items was Urban Decay's Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Fetish. Ashley & I love the same shades of blush. We're always laughing about it! Well in 2015 I started remodeling my home. I was going to do 1-3 rooms, but ended up doing the entire house ;) So I packed up a lot of my makeup and pretty much only reviewed anything new that came in. So that's why you've been seeing a mix of both older & newer makeup reviews. By the end of May, I should be done reviewing all the past stuff. Well anyway, my delay is your GAIN! This blush is now ON SALE! It's an excellent blush! It's MATTE! I'm not sure if you are aware, but Urban Decay's Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush also offers SHIMMER shades. According to UD, this blush is suppose to give you a "sexy, lit from within ... like the lingering effects of a romantic rendezvous." Well! LOL I will say, it gives a lovely effect. This color is very soft & natural looking. It stayed on my face all day. It blended great with my makeup. This is just a superb everyday blush. Very fresh! I love it and I'm so happy Ashley sent it to me. I paired this blush with Urban Decay's Lip Gloss in LIAR. I thought it complimented it. This blush runs $26. Both ULTA & BELK ($15.60) and MACY's ($23.40) have some of the colors on sale. All the shades are available on Urban Decay's website, but they were full price. But catch an UD sale, if you're interested.

FYI This weekend I will have two sponsored posts. I accept these every now & then to defray costs of giveaways & shipping etc. They're usually very interesting topics. Have a great weekend everybody!

  2. I love this shade. I think it would work well on me too!

  3. I don't know what colour the afterglow from a romantic encounter is, ha ha, but I will admit that I think this is a lovely shade and it suits you really well, Kim! The only UD products I've tried are eyeshadows, to be honest, and I'm very loyal to Nars blushes, which I've been wearing for almost the past decade, but I might just consider checking UD out after seeing this on you.

  4. This is lovely on you! I wish there was a urban decay near me so I could give this a swatch!

  5. This blush is gorgeous on you Kim! It imparts such a natural looking glow and the lipstick you chose to pair with it is the perfect complement.

  6. I'm so glad you love this blush, Kim!! It looks beautiful on you. I haven't used mine a in a while so I'm going to have to pull it out and use it! I've always wanted more blushes from UD, the formula is so great! And it does look very pretty with your lip color!

  7. This blush is so pretty and looks great on you! I'm glad you are loving it!

  8. Hi Kim, love this one. Looks so pretty on you. I like the matte style.

  9. That really is a stunning shade, Kim! I haven't bought anything from Urban Decay since forever....well, ever since Gwen Stefani collection but I'll need to hop over and check about this blush.

  10. This is definitely your shade Kim, it looks amazing on you!! I haven't tried any UD products but I really need to, everyone is talking about them!! Happy weekend lovely! xx


  11. That is a beautiful blush and I like the 'romantic rendezvous' description, haha! I'm sure I've seen this brand here, I will keep it in mind as I need to go for a makeup trial session before going back to work and get a new set of makeup for the office.

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend :) Sorry I've been a little behind with blogging lately - have been working on something special I hope to share soon! :)

  12. I'm not a massive fan of blush because they usually end up making my face looking super pink and it makes me look like a 12 year old. This one looks nice and not so bright! I like the way it looks on you!

  13. This blush looks great!



  14. I have never explored Urban Decay blushes. My eyes are always on their eyeshadows and lipsticks. It's great that you found the blush supersweet. I should really check out the blushes when I can.

  15. Such a gorgeous shade and looks like it blends amazing and seamlessly too. It's been a while since I've picked up anything from UD. xx
