I know I gush about another cosmetic brand but honestly my heart is huge enough to love other brands equally. Urban Decay is one of those brands that owns a portion of my heart – I’d say upper right side. I love their eye pencils, liquid liners and awesome eye shadows. I am also a fan of their minty fresh lip glosses but I soon noticed their lipstick was lacking and then the collection disappeared.
Until recently. The lipstick collection came back late this Summer and they came back HARD! The reviews from my fellow bloggers all raved just how awesome they were and this really piqued my interest. But I, QUEEN of the most sensitive lips had another thought – “I’ll be the judge of that!”
I did and what can I say? It’s LOVE!
What makes this so wonderful?
Well aside from 22 colors to choose from – the most demure nude beige to the most sultry devious plum and sexy, gorgeous reds. I would challenge you not to find a shade that would disappoint! It also has tremendous staying power. I only have to reapply this twice (after lunch) if I wear this lipstick to the office. UD’s Pigment Infusion System gives the formula a super creamy texture, superior color dispersion and long wear.
Urban Decay also launched new 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils that coordinate with these shades. For ultimate long wearing power, pair the lipstick with it’s matching lip pencil. The pencil is also nice, creamy and very easy to apply. This is also comfortable on my lips. I have worn this lipstick by itself and while it may not be as opaque it still lasts for quite sometime.
Long wearing power, universally flattering shades, what more could I ask for? It keeps my lips soft and comfortable even when wearing this lipstick on consecutive days. Sometimes I can’t wear certain brands of lipstick consecutively because in the end my lips become raw and peel. I have yet to face that problem with this formula. That said, I really hope I didn’t jinx myself just now.
Here’s a swatch of the colors I went with – it was a really hard choice!
Jilted, deep fuchsia with blue shift, Lipstick and Venom, rich plum, Lip Pencil (far right)
A sensible beauty consumer would have chosen the safe nude pink, or rosy mauve for the office but since this lipstick’s tagline is Creamy Badass Luxury, I just couldn’t resist this fuchsia shade. Plus the subtle blue shift brightens my smile.
The color is actually brighter in person. I apologize for the bad lighting.
It’s fragrance free and like all Urban Decay products, they are cruelty-free.
I was really hoping that this lipstick was going to fail me but I couldn’t be further from that. My downfall will be choosing the next shade for my collection.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22/USD) and 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19/USD) are now available online at www.urbandecay.com, Sephora, Ulta and Selected Macy’s.
