Blush is the final frontier of coloured cosmetics. Think about it. Would you wear a bright purple blush?
Urban Decay, that cult makeup brand that’s only just hit our shores at Mecca Maxima, will be releasing their Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in July, and within this range is the orchid-purple “Bittersweet” shade, which I’m holding in the photo above. (Post continues after gallery.)
We all know that beauty nerds (ahem, me) go crazy over anything by Urban Decay (Naked eyeshadow palette, anyone?). So, does this mean that the fashion and beauty set will be seen with purple cheeks come July? Perhaps.
I checked out the Urban Decay Bittersweet blush myself, and was surprised at the results, because the colour was actually… wearable. Here are four ways to wear it. Who would have thought there’d be so many uses for a fluoro purple blush compact?
