Urban Decay Indecent Afterglow 8-Hour Blush Review and Swatches

Let me open your eyes to an absolutely gorgeous range of blushes that haven't really made the impact that others have, and yet are cheaper and really stunning! Urban Decay has some new powder blushes and they're really beautiful!

I was incredibly lucky to be gifted this gorgeous blush by Bubblymichelle, I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the package and saw the brand new blush by Urban Decay! I won a giveaway she hosted on her instagram account and the lipstick I won is also gorgeous and goes well with this blush, you can take a look in my review of Tom Ford Sweet Spot

Let me start by saying that this Urban Decay range of blushes is very well priced! You get 6.5 grammes of product for £19 which is a really great deal if we compare with other brands such as NARS. 
There are also 12 different shades in a wide range, from a few nudes to a load of pop colours. I am sure that you will find whichever colour you're looking for, specially if you're the sort who falls in love with bold colours!
The packaging is really cool, it has the typical Urban Decay vibe, it's a square compact with the large UD letters and it has a plastic mesh where the mirror should be inside. This is for tapping the brush when you apply it, I think that's a great idea!
On the back of the blush it says the name and the sticker on the box also says the name and has the same colour as the blush inside, very practical indeed.

As for the texture of the blush, wowee! This blush is a light peach and yet it's incredibly pigmented, I imagine you'd need a light hand for the more powerful shades. Not only is the blush really pigmented, it's also very finely milled and soft
It kicks up a lot of dust in the pan but it doesn't look powdery on the face, plus it's an absolute dream to blend. You can apply a very light layer or have a very strong pigmented colour, either way it looks natural on the skin and it doesn't enhance pores
As I said, the finish isn't powdery on the skin, and even though it looks matte on the pan it has a satin sheen which becomes apparent on the skin when you blend it into the skin. It looks very natural and beautiful! 

The colour I have here today is called Indecent, it's a lovely peachy-orange with warm undertones which would pair beautifully with purple, green and blue eyeshadows as I'm wearing today. I'm really happy to have this shade as I haven't got any other blushes like this one. 

Had you seen the new Urban Decay blushes?
