fantastic blush! i bought it in bang, a super bright intimidating orange. it was my first time using cream blush and definitely my first time using bright orange and it looks great! super easy to use, blends really well and you can start off with the smallest amount and build it. i've bought a lot more blushes since then but this is still one of my favourites! i'd definitely recommend this.
Pretty packaging, great texture and goes so smoothly :)
I use it primarily as a base for cheek color as I find it too subtle but it's very buildable. I then apply Dolly Mix (MAC) powder blush. The overall effect of Afterglow is that it gives my cheeks that extra shimmer and dewy effect.
I have this blush in the color "Quickie." It's a bit intimidating in the pan as it appear to be bright, almost neon pink - but I love it! It doesn't take a lot, easy to blend, and while it's not meant for the lips it works wonderfully as a tint when you're in a rush. The texture is creamy, but not in a way that leaves the fingers feeling like they really really need to be washed after use, but just enough so it glides over the skin nicely. I prefer to use a brush with this blush, not only for sanitary purposes but also because I can also easy buff in the color for a subtle glow. I find that a natural-haired chisel brush works best for me.
Urban Decay's blush is also marketed as having retinol in it - I haven't noticed a difference in my skin, nor did I expect to, but it does make my skin look nice and healthy :)
I bought this blush in Score, a pinky-peach shade. Gotta say, I absolutely love it. It goes on smooth and is very buildable, which is great because its hard to give yourself the famed "clown look" with this product. The only reason I didn't give five lippies is because Score, while a totally beautiful color, has these rather large sparkles that make me feel like a ten year old.
I got a free sample of this with my last UD order. The shade I received was "Quickie" which is a bright bubblegum pink. I was a little skeptical about this because I've had limited success with other cream blushes but this one is totally different! It's incredibly blendable and the color compliments my complexion perfectly. Even more than a blush, I love this stuff as a lip stain! It's like the perfect MLBB shade that amps up the color of my lips without adding any shine, which I love because I hate glossy lip products. Considering that this product is perfect for two separate applications, I'm absolutely in LOVE with it. I'm definitely going to be purchasing the full size soon.
Lately I've found myself on a cheek/face kick. I've been buying all sorts of blushes (powder, cream, gel, stains) and different foundations to test them out on. This product is great--like a powdery cream that glides right on. It's super blendable, so you don't have to worry about putting too much on during your first swipe (who hasn't done that with a powder blush?) and this product has just enough hint of shimmer to be interesting without totally overpowering the face.
The shade I purchased this in, Afterglow, really would be perfect on any skin tone. I have very fair skin and dark hair, and I find that this really helps me look flushed for natural looks. A great purchase and something fun to play with and have in your bag of tricks when you want to try something a little different :)
I bought this in Greedy (a beautyful burgundy berry colour) on a whim as I love other UD-products, and boy am I glad I did. This blush is just perfection! Every other cream blush I own (amongst them are Tarte and NYX) is just bleh in comparison.
It's pigmented, but as it's really easy to blend into the skin it's also easy to avoid looking like a clown. Just three swirls with my finger, pat on the cheek, blend and taadah!
Will definitely buy other shades!
This review is for Crush. I got a free sample of it from UD, and I loved it so much I had to go buy it! It looks really bright in the pan, but applied with a light hand, it gives a gorgeous deep pink, slightly peach flush. It has no shimmer. I am very pale, leaning cool, and this is one of my favorite blushes. I use a small skunk brush to apply it and this works perfectly, although it can be applied nicely with fingers as well. My skin is a little oily, so some cream blushes don't last long on me, but this one lasts all day. Don't be afraid of the brightness on this one, give it a try! I think this could look good on most skin tones.
I love Urban Decay products so when I got my hands on Urban Decays Afterglow Glide On Cheek Tint in Bang I seriously could not wait to use it! I don't know why but for some reason I chose the color Bang which happens to be a neon orange color. I normally wear pink blushes since I'm really pale so this was a huge change for me. I applied it with my finger tips and I thought the color was a bit too strong for my skin tone. So I was a little disappointed. Later I got an idea to apply the blush with a stippling brush and it came out amazing! This is my everyday blush! When I would wear cream blushes in the past they would fade within a few hours and I would have to reapply. I do not have that problem with UD's Glide On Cheek Tint. It takes a long while to fade or come off completely. Even when it starts to fade the color still looks so pretty. I read a lot of reviews on the shades Quickie and Fetish but hardly any on Bang. I think Bang would look nice on all skin tones. I'm very light skinned and when I showed my aunt my new blush she was totally freaked out and told me that was meant for someone with a much darker skin tone. Like it mentioned before this is now my everyday blush. I'm so pleased with how it looks on my skin. I used to use MAC cremeblush in Posey every single day but I had several issues with it. So all in all I love this blush. Its sheer so you can build the color if necessary. I love the packaging its a bright purple compact with a silver snake on the top with a mirror inside. The only problem i have with this is that its $24. Which is kind of expensive but in a way its worth it because a little does go along way. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this product. Let me know if it worked for you or if it didn't and how you felt about it. If you have any questions let me know! I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for reading!
After-glow Cheek Tint - Crush. My daughter tried to sell me on this blush, but I kept thinking it's just too bright. So I asked the salesperson to help me. She took me to the same blush! It is definitely not too bright, although it appears so in the container. It's very sheer, can be layered for more color and blends easily. I've also found that does have pretty good staying power, which none of my previous blushes had. I love this blush and will be heading out this weekend to purchase another color for fall!
