In March, I attended The Makeup Show LA 2016.
I was fortunate to receive some products at the Blogger Preview. I already reviewed Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip in Rust (top right).
my Instagram. I also bought some products at The Makeup Show LA. I already reviewed Make Up For Ever Artist Lip Blush in Exalted Rosewood (bottom middle), Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in Sin (middle), and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow (top left).
Urban Decay products that day. I already reviewed Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in Sin which I bought. For this post, I will review the blush I received.
Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Satisfy
Where to purchase: ULTA, Sephora, department stores, and online at urbandecay.com
Price: $26 for 6.8 g/ 0.23 oz
Made in USA
Description from the package:Wearable color that won't quit. Extremely blendable, our sheer, finely milled powder blush delivers 8 hours of wear in a lust-worthy array of shades in both shimmer and matte finishes.
Thoughts: When I first received this blush, I wanted the other shade that was given in our goody bag. From what I recall, the other shade was on the pinker side. I felt this color might be too light for my skin tone or muddy.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm loving the packaging just like I did with Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in Sin. It has a sleek, lightweight packaging. It also comes with a magnetic opening/closing. I don't have to dig my fingers into the tiny space and break my fingernails. With that said, it doesn't come with a mirror and brush. Some people wouldn't like that but I don't mind. Secondly, the powder is so soft. It feels like butter in-between my fingers. With that said, it's easy to apply. You can use both fingers and brush. I actually use a brush. The powder adheres to the brush easily and goes on the skin really well. I don't have to dig into the blush. With that said, there aren't any loose powder all over the packaging. Even though the powder is soft, it's extremely compacted making it travel-friendly. Third, the color wasn't what I expected. Initially when I saw it in the package, I thought it would be more on the brownish side than peach/coral. It's more peachy/coral than muddy or at least on me. It's a great everyday color that would look great with any makeup from smokey to natural. With that said, it's pretty pigmented. I didn't have to layer as much as I expected. Couple layers was good enough on my in-between light to medium skin tone. Lastly, it lasted all day on me. It did not come off throughout the day. I wore it at home and didn't have to reapply once. Since I have dry skin, things last a long time on me compared to oily skin individuals.
