He debuted with Spring/Summer 2007 collection later that year in London attracted even more attention as well as immediate sales.

Kane’s design reflects a woman’s attitude as opposed to age.

‘Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush—the foolproof way to create that effortless, radiant look.

Much like the lingering effects of a romantic rendezvous, Afterglow won’t quit. Our extremely blendable, finely milled formula goes on sheer and provides eight long hours of wearable, buildable color. And wait until you feel it! Lightweight yet luxurious, Afterglow has a soft, creamy texture that always applies beautifully. The lineup: nine scintillating shades…some with a matte finish, and others with a hint of shimmer.’

Urban Decay Summer 2015 Collection Blushers Swatches

Swatches for the blushers and personally, I quite like Bittersweet although it is purple but it gives a light hint of pink over the cheeks without looking purple at all.
