Hope you’ve had a great bank holiday weekend. A few weeks back we shared our thoughts on the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the shade Native (review here). When we went to an event for the Electric Palette this was another of the items I decided I had to purchase.
I loved the formula of the lipsticks but Native isn’t a colour I wear much anymore. I very much a brights on the lips girl. I find nude shades don’t suit me very much any more. I won’t go into the packaging too much but I do love the gunmetal colour and embossing on it.
I went for the shade Catfight, after seeing it swatched on Nina’s hand there was noway I wasn’t having it. It’s a shade my totally
ridiculous necessary lipstick collection is lacking. Most of the red colours I own are blue toned. I love the warm pinky tone of the shade with enough red to make it not too pink! (I’m great at describing colours!)
One swipe of this lipstick leaves the most amazing pigmentation on the lips! It’s got a subtle sheen to it and just glides onto the lips. Another bonus is it makes my teeth look white. I would say I could do with a lip brush to apply it. Something about the shape of the bullet makes a bright colour hard to apply tidy! It may be me. The lipstick does look different colours in different lights. The first two photos on the lips are from my camera normally and the last one is from the camera front facing. I would say the swatch is most true to colour.
These lipsticks last amazingly well and for a bright colour fade pretty well. There is a slight ring around the lips but nothing as bad as some. They aren’t drying either which is always a plus.
They retail for £15 which is reasonable for high end lipsticks! As I have previously said I wouldn’t have looked to Urban Decay for lipstick before but I love the formula and would put them on par with MAC!
Have you tried Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks?
