I’ve really been having an Urban Decay moment. I’ve found the people who work there really lovely and really knowledgable of the different products.
I went to the House of Fraser store, actually looking at the Nars Audacious Lipstick in the shade ‘Lela’; a gorgeous orange-red colour. There was nobody at the Nars stall so I asked the girl at Urban Decay to help. We couldn’t find it so she offered to show me the Revolution lipsticks, which in all fairness, she saved me £10 matching the Audacious lipstick to ‘Bang!’
This is how the few extra naughty purchases happened. One of them being this blush. These cost £19 and come in a rather funky chrome silver packaging. You can see the colour of the product through the ‘UD’ symbol netting, which looks really cool. However it does mean that there isn’t a mirror. It’s a minor thing, and I don’t tend to use the tiny mirrors in my products anyway. It also claims to last 8 hours. I’m not sure about this, but it does last a long time.
Anyway, what intrigued me to this blush wasn’t the colour itself. It looks very ‘meh’ in the pan and quite terracotta brown. Not a colour that I would choose. However, the sales assistant said that she was wearing it and it looked pink on her. I was intrigued and asked to try it on myself expecting the pink. But no! On me this turned a mauve, dusty plum. It was stunning! I needed it in my life.
I also used this on my friend Lynz on Halloween and it was more plum shaded on her. I don’t think it has colour adaption technology. It doesn’t say anything online, but it must have something in it to do these different looks!
The colour is stunning, and will be a lovely one to wear throughout the whole year.
Have you tried this shade? What do you think? Or are there any other Aftetglow blushers that I should try?
Bye for now!
