Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend, Phone Call, Firebird 24/7 Lip Pencils

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “nude rose.” It’s a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on evenly and only clung somewhat. The texture was still less waxy than I’m used to from this formula, but it was easier to use than most of the other shades in the spring launch. It wore for six hours before fading. MAC Staunchly Stylish (P, $19.50) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty #036 (P, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Nice 'n' Spicy (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Deep (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Morning Coffee (P, $19.50) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Phone Call 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia-pink.” It’s a bright, medium-darkw fuchsia-coral with warm-ish undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a slightly dry, firm consistency. It covered better and delivered smoother results, but it dragged and took awhile to fill in the lips due to how jagged everything looked. The color wore for over six hours. MAC Dynamo (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Embrace Me (P, $17.50) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Firebird 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a bright, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and subtle silver sparkle over a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a drier, firmer consistency that dragged and tugged. It would be manageable to use to liner the edge of the lips, but for filling in, it was pretty rough. The color started to fade from the center of the lips noticeably after four hours. Tom Ford Beauty I'll Teach You (Lip Shaper) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty #090 (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Urban Decay Anarchy (P, $20.00) is brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 714, Rock Steady, Wonderland 24/7 Lip Pencils

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 714 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a medium red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The 714 lipstick pulled warm to my eye, and when I swatched them side-by-side, it definitely has an orange-tint and is lighter, while the lip pencil looks almost muted and berry-ish in comparison. Together, they layer and create a very true, retro red. The texture of the pencil was much less waxy compared to the formula I’m used to, and it is less comfortable to apply and wear. It lasted for six hours or longer (it was still going strong after six hours), but it was drying on its own. Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (P, $17.50) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Trust in Red (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $19.50) is darker, brighter (95% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Cherry (P, $17.50) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Fighter (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Shaper) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Rock Steady 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “blood red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it had similar issues with texture that made it harder to apply evenly. It had a tendency to drag and skip, so short, feathery strokes are a must, and it’s not my ideal formula for filling in lips entirely but would be tolerable to outline with. The color wore well for at least six hours but was very drying. Urban Decay Bad Blood (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Kiss Me Quick (P, $19.50) is more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Shaper) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Wonderland 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “dark pink-red.” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia-red with strong, blue-toned pink undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on slightly unevenly as the texture was thinner and less creamy, so it drags a little and is harder to apply. It was incredibly drying and clingy on, which was disappointing as the 24/7 formula is my absolute favorite for lip pencils as it is one of the more comfortable ones to apply and wear (like one of the few that I typically find lightly drying or non-drying!). It was still mostly intact after six hours of wear. Bite Beauty #078 (P, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Trust in Red (P, $19.50) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Secret Escort (Lip Shaper) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

* It’s going to take me under later in the week to get to the other three lip pencils. These caused some lingering damage to my lips due to how drying they were, and frankly, that’s not something I associate with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Lip Pencil formula. These lacked the glide that I’ve always loved Urban Decay’s lip pencils for. According to Urban Decay, the formula is designed to have long-wear, prevent feathering, be creamy, waterproof, go on smoothly, and “nourish the skin” — just for reference.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette ($45.00 for 0.54 oz.) includes six shades of blushes from a pop of pink to a matte bronze. The Afterglow formula is supposed to last for eight hours, sheer coverage. The funny thing about the Afterglow formula is that I don’t really think it’s sheer; it’s more of a medium, buildable coverage formula, which I imagine is something that a lot of people like about it, but just keep in mind that that is how pigmentation is judged from: sheer coverage. The products performed well overall with the only “flaw” being that pigmentation tended to be semi-opaque to opaque rather than sheer. The palette contains $61.04 worth of Afterglow blush.

Cherry is described as a “light pink satin.” It’s a light, cool-toned pink with a soft, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage with a blendable consistency that was a smidgen powdery to work with. It seems to darken slightly applied compared to how it appears in the pan. This shade wore for seven hours on me. Burberry London With Love (LE, $68.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lazy Sunday (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC First Waves (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Prism (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Better Together (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Pink Buttercream (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Unconventional (LE, $23.00) is cooler (85% similar). NYX Baby Doll (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Bloom (LE, $80.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Robotic (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Easy is described as a “deep rose with gold shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with cooler undertones paired with warm, gold frost. It had semi-opaque color payoff (it’s not what I’d call sheer!) that blended out nicely on the skin without emphasizing pores. This shade wore well for eight hours. Tarte Embraced (LE, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). CoverGirl Deep Mauve (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Clinique Heather Pop (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Chroma (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). IT Cosmetics Radiant in Rose (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Wrapped Candy (P, $27.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). MAC Plum Foolery (P, $23.00) is cooler (85% similar). NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). theBalm Pinstripe (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Sweet Samba (LE, $27.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Ferocious (LE, $30.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Justine Skye (LE, $26.00) is cooler (85% similar). IT Cosmetics Magical in Mauve (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Angel is described as a “champagne-nude shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, golden champagne with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation–not sheer–with a smooth, blendable texture that didn’t emphasize pores when applied. On my skin tone, this is a highlighter and not a blush, for reference, but on very fair skin tones, it may act as a highlighting blush (and add warmth without adding orange tones). It wore well for eight hours before fading. theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Coup de Genie (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Golden Flower Crown (P, $4.99) is darker (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Midnight Sun (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Noctum (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). NARS Tribulation (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NARS Hot Sand (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Oh, Darling! (P, $33.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Electric Slide (DC, $8.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lo-Fi is described as a “soft bronze matte.” It’s a soft, medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, and the texture of this one was firmer and thinner–a little dusty in a way–and didn’t blend out as well on the skin as the Afterglow formula typically does. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me. KIKO 100 Cookie (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Skinny Dip (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Contour (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Zoeva ND020 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Bronze #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Sensual (P, $28.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #5 (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). Benefit Hoola (P, $29.00) is darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is darker (85% similar). Illamasqua Disobey (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Jawbone (LE, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer (LE, $27.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hush is described as a “medium pink with gold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage with a soft, smooth, and slightly powdery texture as the powder was so soft that it kind of crumbled at the touch of a brush. It tended to sheer out a lot applied, so sustained coverage was difficult unless applied over damp foundation or with a slightly dampened brush. On me, the color lasted for eight hours. Le Metier de Beaute Whisper (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Benefit CORALista (Palette) (P, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Indiscretion (P, $44.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pearl Sunshine (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Starlight (P, $44.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala (LE, $25.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Becca Fig/Opal (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). By Terry Tropical Sunset #5 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Papa Don't Peach (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Becca Rose Gold (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Smashbox Shimmer (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Ballerina (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Parasol (LE, $8.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

OC is described as a “soft pink with peach shift.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a pink duochrome shift paired with a satiny sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage. This one will be interesting to see how readers enjoy it, as it looks like a green-leaning yellow straight on, but when it catches the light, you get the pink shift, which is lovely, but it doesn’t always look that way. It lasted for eight hours on me. It reminded me a lot of a long-ago MAC Blush, Spaced Out, which was so long ago that I don’t have a regular swatch of it. Anastasia Hard Candy (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek Mai Tai (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Highly Waisted (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Motif (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Rock Steady, Spiderweb, Wonderland Lipsticks

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Lipstick
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Lipstick

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Rock Steady Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep wine red cream.” It’s a deepened, dark burgundy red with warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but you could see my lip freckle peeking through, though the lipstick applied smoothly and evenly (not always the case with these darker, glossier shades). The texture had moderate slip, so if feathering is something you often experience, you may want to use a lip liner with this one (I didn’t have feathering myself, but it doesn’t happen frequently to me). The color wore well for five hours and left a stain behind, while the formula was comfortable to wear and hydrating. Urban Decay Rock Steady (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Besame Red Velvet 1946 (P, $22.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Velvet (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Besame Cherry Red 1935 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Tannin (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Mulled Maple (LE, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Red Velvet (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Luxure (P, $49.50) is less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Black Cherry (LE, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). Givenchy Grenat Initie (307) (P, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Spiderweb Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “satin red cream.” It’s a bright, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones. It looks warmer against my complexion, as I find neutral reds often do, but I expect it to pull a little cooler against those with naturally cool undertones. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a light-medium consistency that applied well and sat nicely on the lips. This shade wore well for six hours, left a stain behind, and was hydrating. Bobbi Brown Retro Red (P, $35.00) is warmer (95% similar). Buxom Provocateur (P, $21.00) is cooler, glossier (95% similar). MAC Yoni Crush (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rouge Fatal (LE, $54.00) is warmer (95% similar). Burberry Military Red (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). Shiseido Poppy (RD312) (P, $28.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Fireworks (LE, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Chanel Carmin (LE, $37.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Spiderweb (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Cle de Peau Dragon Red (P, $65.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay F-Bomb (DC, $22.00) is warmer, less glossy (95% similar). Anna Sui Minnie Mouse (01) (LE, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Make Up For Ever C404 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Guerlain Gala (P, $55.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Parisian Red (P, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay 69 (DC, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Noirish (P, $32.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Wonderland Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “dark pink-red cream.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia-red with subtle, bluish-pink undertones and satin finish. It had intense, fully opaque coverage with a smooth, creamy consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin that glided across the lips with ease. On me, the formula was moisturizing while lasting for five and a half hours. Urban Decay Wonderland (P, $17.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Urban Decay Catfight (DC, $22.00)(95% similar). Bite Beauty Crianza (P, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Party Parrot (LE, $17.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Guerlain Insolence (144) (LE, $37.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Givenchy Rouge Egerie (305) (P, $36.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
