New Urban Decay Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush Review

With so many makeup brands getting in on the liquid blush trend, obviously, Urban Decay had to have a piece of it too! From the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Blush Wand, to the Rare Beauty Liquid Blush, not one to miss out on the trend, Urban Decay has just announced their new Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush.

While some might yawn at another liquid blush, I’m rather excited. I love the Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator, and in general, am a fan of most Urban Decay products. Let’s find out what the New Urban Decay Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush is all about!

What is the Urban Decay Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush

Urban Decay Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush is all about giving you long-lasting rosy cheeks with a dewy glow. Whereas many liquid blushes give a subtle pinch of color to the cheeks, the Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush gives more than just a flush. It gives a highly pigmented color that is sheer, yet buildable, blendable, and lasts for up to 24 hours! A little goes a long way.

But that’s not all this blush has to boast about. The vegan formula is infused with skin-loving ingredients to hydrate, nourish and protect your skin as you go about your day!

The main ingredients are:

  • kombucha: detoxifies and nourishes the skin
  • marula oil: protects and hydrates the skin

The cheek tints come in 6 highly-pigmented shades that are made for all skin tones, light to dark. While I agree, the blushes look ideal for dark skin tones, I think they’re only suitable for pale skin tones if you like a heavy blush look. But that does make sense since Urban Decay says, these blushes give more than just a flush of color!

Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush Shades
  • Drippin’ – cool-toned bubblegum pink
  • Obsessed – warm, vacation-ready coral peach
  • Rebellious – bold & burnt terracotta
  • Red Flag – hot, red-orange blush
  • Unhinged – saucy berry mauve
  • Wrecked – moody dusty rose

How to Apply the Liquid Blush

Liquid blush is so easy to apply and you have much more control over it than a powder blush.

  • Using your fingers or a blush brush, apply two dots on each cheek
  • Gently pat and blend the tint into the apple of your cheek

You can wear the blush alone or on top of your favourite liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer. Be aware that if you’re using a liquid blush, you need to use a liquid base, you can’t blend a liquid on top of a powder. It simply won’t blend properly.

Is the Urban Decay Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush For You?

If you love a dewy glow to your skin, you’ll love the Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush. There’s a reason why everyone and every brand loves liquid blush at the moment. Aside from liquid blush being easier to apply than powder blush, a liquid blush is less cakey and is so easy to get a natural makeup look with.

Gone are the days when heavy makeup was all we knew. Nowadays, everyone wants a piece of skin-like, natural-looking makeup. But, is a liquid blush for you?

Liquid blush is most suitable for dry, aging and mature skin. Especially one like the Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush which has skincare ingredients in it. A powder blush tends to settle into lines, wrinkles and dry areas giving them more attention than they need, whereas, a liquid blush gets absorbed into the skin becoming one with the skin. If you don’t want to draw attention to these areas, you’ll love a liquid blush!

That being said, for oily skin and for those with enlarged pores, a liquid blush is usually not the best option. Even though the cheek tints are non-non-comedogenic and won’t clog pores, oily skin doesn’t need a blush with a dewy finish, and aside from the finish, a powder sits better and works better with oily skin.

When it comes to enlarged pores, my personal experience is that liquid tints tend to get stuck in the pores creating a finish that’s far from flawless. I’m still trying to figure out a way to make liquid and cream blushes as well as liquid and cream contours work for my skin. So far, I’ve been unsuccessful, but I will keep you posted!

My Thoughts

If you have dry, aging or mature skin, and love an intense flush to your cheeks, the Urban Decay Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush is a great option for you! One thing to be aware of is that it’s on the pricier side, as Urban Decay products usually are. For a more budget-friendly option, check out these cream and liquid blushes.

Urban Decay Hydromaniac Dewy Liquid Blush will be available from May 28th.
