Review & Swatches: Urban Decay Afterglow Cheek Tint in Quickie


A while ago, we took a peek at Urban Decay's Afterglow cheek tint in Fetish - and found that whilst the texture was gorgeously easy to blend, the colour was incredibly subtle, even on pale skin.  Where Fetish was a natural, tawny pink, Quickie is a super bright, almost highlighter neon pink.


The colours, in the pan, look worlds apart in terms of intensity - if I didn't know just how sheer these are from my experience with Fetish, I'd run a mile from Quickie as it's just so insanely bright.


Swatched together, Fetish is clearly the more natural choice, with Quickie looking still bright, but more sheer and very juicy.


Blended out onto the cheeks, Quickie is a lot less scary - it gives a summery, pretty flush which is much more noticeable than the effect you get from Fetish, but looks much less neon than the colour does in the pan.  This bright pop of colour, paired with a touch of mascara and a bit of brow pencil, makes for a really quick and easy summer look - pretty and made up, but not overly heavy or overdone.

I'm much happier with Quickie than I am with Fetish - I can see it easily fitting into my summer makeup bag, and if I manage to get away for a holiday, I'll definitely be taking this lovely tint with me.  

Available from BeautyBay as well as other online retailers, and in store at Debenhams and House of Fraser, Urban Decay Afterglow Cheek Tint costs £18 - and I reckon for a quick, juicy summer blush look, the brighter shades like Quickie and Crush are well worth the money.  What do you think?  Prefer this, or the more natural Fetish shade?  Let us know in the comments!
