Review: Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick

“For Urban Decay this season is ALL about lips. Revolution Lipstick combines intense pigment and creamy shine for a formula that’s unbelievably luxurious. Addictive to apply (and even more addictive to wear), Super creamy formula glides on without dragging or skipping, hugs every curve and gives you a BIG laydown of color. Shades range from gorgeous nudes to bold brights, there are colors for everyone. The Pigment Infusion System™ gives insane pigmentation, super creamy texture, great color dispersion and extended wear. Jojoba oil, cocoa butter and shea butter keep lips super moisturized and incredibly soft. Maxi-Lip™ defines and hydrates lips. (http://iamthemakeupjunkie.blogspot.com/2013/07/urban-decay-fall-2013-revolution.html)” That was taken from the press release that Urban Decay sent out discussing their new Revolution Lipstick. I used this because the copy was so good, I couldn’t say anything that wasn’t so much better than what they had put out.
There are 22 shades to choose from. I purchased 6 shades of the new lipstick to try out for myself. I couldn’t wait to try it. It sounded so awesome! The ones I tried out are mainly nudes and one bright shade. Below you will see swatches of the shades I tried with my thoughts on them.

When I saw them on the Urban Decay website, the shades looked a little bit different than how they look in person, which is par for the course with cosmetics. A couple of those colors end up looking very similar. Naked is described as a nude-pink, which is pretty accurate. Naked2 is described as a medium beige-nude, which I agree is fairly accurate. Native is listed as a pale pink, which is also somewhat accurate. I don’t think it as too pale. Liar is listed as a pinky brown-nude. I think it is a little bit hard to describe but that is somewhat accurate. It has some pink. But I don’t think it is nude. Lovelight is described as a pale peachy-pink shimmer and it doesn’t swatch at all like that. It has shimmer in it, but you cannot see it. On it is a lovely color. It swatches very streaky. Streak is listed as a coral-pink and that is accurate. It is a cute color. I love it!

I do think there is a good selection of colors. Urban Decay really did do a good job of coming out with colors for everyone. My only problem is that there aren’t enough shimmers. I love shimmers and they only have 2 out of 22 colors. Seriously! Hopefully they will come out with more. The shades are extremely shiny though. They look gorgeous on the lips. The pigmentation is great and it really does only take one pass to get the great color you need to wear throughout the day. I find that it does last a good long time, usually about 6 hours of wear. I know others are getting at least 7 hours too. It depends on how you eat. It goes great over their new 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils. I have worn each of the shades I ordered and I plan on ordering more of them!
