Review: Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in "Quickie"

When I buy new blush, I almost always immediately go back to my tried and true "peony" blush by Bobbi Brown.  So you know when I try a new blush and wear it every single day for more than a week---that I really love it.

I'm talking about the Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint. I got the color "Quickie" which is a bright pink color that gives a perfect flush to the cheeks. I apply it with a Sigma blush brush just to the apples of the cheeks over my NARS Laguna bronzer.

I took these photos after work because I wanted to show you how long the blush lasts because upon reading other reviews, a lot of people complained that the blush didn't last long.  I don't find this to be the case at all. I applied this blush at about 6 a.m. (I had an earlier start to my morning this Monday) and this is how it looked when I got home at 6 p.m.:


My cheeks are still pink and pretty, even though my skin is totally oily!  It's getting a lot warmer here now and by the end of the day my skin can be a little oily if I don't blot----but for the sake of this review, I wanted to show photos of how it looks after a day of wear.  I was in and out of the office today filming a video at various locations so I was outside more than usual. I definitely recommend this blush. It's easy to apply and the color is beautiful. I will make a note to take photos of it when I first apply it because it's more of a bright pink in the morning and a little brighter.

Speaking of awesome Urban Decay products---here are my eyelids after an entire day of wear after using the holy grail Urban Decay Primer Potion:

Can you say perfectly matte!?  This product is a must-have. Yes, I know my eyebrows look unruly! Time for a little trim.

Have you tried the UD afterglow cream blushes?  Let me know!

xoxo,

Veronika.

  16. Wow - the eye primer really does work!!!

    I'm not a huge fan of glide-on tints, but happy it works for you. Maybe I just don't apply it properly? LOL!!!

  23. This is a really gorgeous colour on you! I'm surprised that it doesn't go on really bright because in the pan it looks neon. I'm a new follower by the way : )
