I have a few lipsticks in my collection, and realistically I could get rid of a few of them because I just don’t wear them that often at all, swiping some colour on my lips had always been an afterthought, and most days I would just go without. However things have changed in recent weeks since discovering the ‘My lips but better/oh this shade is so wearable and works for all occasions’ lipstick. I wasn’t on the hunt for a lipstick, but when I was gifted a couple of Urban Decay goodies after a event, rather than passing it onto my sister I decided to try out the Revolution Lipstick in Naked for myself....well it was love.
The pigmentation, the ease of application and creamy consistency, I was sold. I know its become a firm favourite because it’s started to mould into the appropriate shape for my lips (You know what I mean right?) Proof that I am applying this a lot more often than others in my stash. It’s a definite my lips but better shade, which is perfect for me. As i’m not one to focus on the lips anyway, wearing a lippy that gives you that little something extra without being a ‘OH MY GOD LEANNE PUT LIPSTICK ON’ shade is a winner in my books. I’ll get the odd question of what colour I have on my lips, so it is clear there is something on there, but it’s not too offensive to the eye! Perfect for those of us that want to start wearing lippy but don’t want to jump in all guns blazing with Macs girl about town, or something else equally as bright!
The Urban Decay revolution lipsticks retail for £15.50 which is more than your average drugstore lippy. However, as this is one that I clearly enjoy wearing on a regular basis, I don’t mind paying that price. The shade range in this line of lipsticks is insane. There are 22 different shades to choose from, ranging from your nudes right across to your deep purples there’s a shade to suit everyone. I’m impressed by the quality of the Revolution lipstick. The longevitiy is pretty impressive, I only find I have to reapply a couple of times a day. The packaging is pretty. Not that that has any impact on the lipsticks performance, but obviously as a beauty lover looks are sometimes important when it comes to products! Urban decay have also brought out some other lipsticks in the revolution range. This includes Sheer Revolution and Matte Revolution. I’d been keen to have a look at the shades in those ranges as it would be nice to have three go to lipsticks in a variety of different finishes.
Have you tried any of the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks? If not I highly recommend getting to a counter and having a good swatch fest on the back of your hand!
