Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Quickie on cheeks and Crush on lips
Urban Decay thinks they found a way to package post-workout cheeks, so now we can get that lit-from-within glow without having to step foot on a treadmill (YEA!).
There is, of course, another, more enjoyable way to get the same effect, but James Franco isn’t returning my calls.
That second way to glow is probably what Urban Decay was thinking when they gave the seven new Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints ($24) their sassy names. And to help you and your partner cover all your bases, they even work on lips.
Fans of coral and peach blushes might like reddish Bang, and/or Indecent, an apricot with golden pearl. Pink ladies should check out hot pink Crush, bubblegum pink Quickie (my fave!), and golden pink Score. And berry lovin’ babes might want to get Greedy (a blackberry) with Fetish, a shimmery mauve.
These have a thin texture and literally melt into my skin. It makes blending a snap, and that makes them great for tight schedules. I’ve just been using clean fingers to lightly dab them onto the plumpest part of my cheeks, aka the apples.
After that, I use the remaining product on my fingers along my cheekbones, fading up and out. At this point, I will reach for a brush, a clean powder brush, and run it over my cheeks to blend everything together, and finish with a few taps on my kisser.
Center: Crush. Clockwise from pink shade lower left: Score, Greedy, Quickie, Indecent, Bang and Fetish

I’m happy with how long these last (about five hours on cheeks and three on lips) and with how much product you get for the price (0.14 oz.). I wouldn’t call them drugstore, but the compacts are pretty good sized. If you know you’re gonna be out and about for a while, it might be nice to have one of these in your purse.
PRICE: $24 for a 0.14-oz. compact
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s and urbandecay.com

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I almost forgot to say TGIF! Doing anything fun this weekend? I think we’re going here for dinner and then maybe coming home to watch a movie. Don’t laugh, but El Hub and I both really love their boxed wine, LOL!
