So the Urban Decay Summer 2015 really is one to get excited about. There are some serious lip glosses with ‘out of this world’ pigmentation, some beautiful new eyeshadow shades and blushes that are simply mind blowing to look at!! In this post I have all the swatches and photos of the new Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush line up. They are pretty special.

  1. oh my you are quick!

    I am interest in trying the purple one (not sure how I’d make it work) but it would go with my hair. Rapture is stunning, that is a must!!
