Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Blushes in Indecent and Score

Urban Decay have a new blush out - meet Afterglow 8 Hour Blush.  It's a simple powder blush which claims to give a 'sexy, lit-from-within glow' and lasts 8 hours on the cheeks.

The packaging is, as usual for UD, a little bit unusual - the pewter plastic cases are very striking, and the mesh underlayer and cutout top are very, very sexy indeed.  This sexiness comes at a cost, though - there's no space for a mirror in the compact.

The blushes themselves are lovely - the powder is finely milled and soft, and blends very easily across the skin.  I found that the pigmentation levels are distinctly medium - a light swirl gives enough pigment for my skin without any risk of clownface.  Indecent is a matte, coral pink, and Score is a pink with a touch of shimmer - both flatter my skin and do indeed last the full 8 hours they claim.

Indecent (the blusher, not me)

I personally prefer Score for the flushed effect, but Indecent is also lovely for a slightly more contoured look.  Overall, I'm pretty impressed with these blushers - although I do wish the compacts had a mirror for ease of use on the go and on my cluttered dressing table.  They're £19.
