Review | Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Score

I recently purchased this blush from and I am so glad I did! I have a bit of an obsession with blush at the moment and this gorgeous gem has made me want to try more in the range…eeek!

If you are wondering what Glambot is, it is an American website that sells items that have been previously loved but still in awesome condition and hygienically cleaned and sealed. Plus they are a fraction of the price! I have a post coming soon with my mini haul and a little more info on them, so keep an eye out for it.

I have tried a lot of Urban Decay products and so far there hasn’t been one I haven’t liked. They are always amazing! I have previously reviewed one of their single eyeshadows here and their beached bronzer here in case your want to have a read. I also love their All Nighter foundation! It is one of my top 5 foundations for oily skin.

Website Claims

‘Soft and creamy, these blushes are formulated with light diffusing pigments to enhance and perfect the look of skin. Ultra blendable, these weightless finely milled powders glide onto skin with ease for eight hours of wear.  Choose from matte to shimmer finishes for a lit from within glow and a sexy flush of colour!’


The blush comes in metallic look purple box with silver writing. It has a luxurious look about it from the start. The compact itself is a hard plastic but looks like metal with its silver metallic colouring. It has a gentle magnetic closure but there is no mirror inside. This is pretty common with blushes though. The square shape and the wire look inside gives it an edgy vide which I love.

The colour is clearly labeled on the back by a coloured sticker and also the name in large print. This is very helpful when you own a few from the same brand!

The Product

The product itself weights 6.8grams and is soft to the touch. You can feel the quality in the product as the powder glides on when swatching. It appears smaller than my Mac pan in size but weight wise is slightly bigger as my Mac blushes are 6grams in weight.

When applying with my Mac 168 brush (my favourite blush brush) the colour glides on and blends beautifully.  It lasts well and is definitely still there after 8 hours of wear as advertised.

Colour and Swatch

Looking at the blush in the pan it appears to have a gold fleck through it. This fleck also shows up when I swatch it on my hand. But when I apply the blush on my cheeks there is no obvious chunky glitter going on, just a gorgeous sheen or glow to my cheeks.

Colour wise it looks more peach in the pan but compared to my other peach and orange shade blushes it is more of  a peachy pink and I think it would be an extremely flattering shade for a lot of people.

Final Thoughts

With my uneven skin tone on my cheeks I prefer to use a matte blush to avoid highlighting this aspect of my skin. If I was honest with myself I probably would not have bought this if I had swatched it in store. But it is different to other shimmery blushes I have tried. It did not emphasise any texture and left such a pretty finish to the skin. The colour is completely up my alley being a peach tone. This blush is fast becoming my new daily option.

Would I buy it again? Definitely! There are 8 other colours options in this range and they are on my radar to try. Have you tried these blushes before? What are you thoughts and is there a colour you suggest I should try next? xx
