Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Bang

bang2*purchased by me

I finally got around to picking up one of the new Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour blushes in the color Bang. This is described as a “bright red-orange”, though to me it seems like it has a touch of coral, particularly when it is blended.


The packaging is interesting. It has a cross-hatched screen inside of it and no mirror, so the color you see above is the actual color of the blush. I’m not annoyed about the lack of mirror, despite having picked the compact up for that exact use a few times. I just need to remember it! 🙂


The blush itself is REALLY vibrant! It is so pigmented that I just give a light tap to the pan with my brush, picking up a teeny-tiny amount of product. It is very easy to go overboard with this color. It is VERY finely milled and smooth. I adore the texture!

I think this would be a particularly beautiful blush on medium to deeper skin tones. On my light to medium skin, I find that it gives me a healthy glow, just like the name implies. Also coming back to claims, does it last 8 hours? It does on me, at least when I’m not being super active and just having a normal day.

I definitely want to get more colors, as I LOVE Bang and have been wearing it practically daily. 🙂 Have you tried these yet?
