Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick vs. Discontinued Lipstick Comparison Swatches & Dupes


The new Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick formula is quite different from their previous formula. (I’m not familiar with their original formula!) Most notably, the previous formula had a lot more slip and slickness, so they felt “wet” and thin, and could easily slide around lips. The consistency of the new formula is creamier with less slip and better hold. The shades before had sheer to medium coverage that was somewhat buildable (and there were a couple shades with more opaque payoff), whereas the new formula, the majority are opaque. The finish is different, too; the previous formula had a more luminous, glossy finish, and this one has a nice shine, but it’s not as glossy–there is a lot less shimmer in the new shades compared to the older formula, where most shades had shimmer. Gone, too, is the creme brulee scent of the older formula (I didn’t smell or taste anything with the new formula).

I went through and swatched all of the shades I had in the previous formula, so they’re now included in the Swatch Gallery for your perusal. If you want to make your own comparisons within Urban Decay’s brand, I highly recommend filtering by type (Lipstick/Lipgloss) and by brand (Urban Decay), which will keep you in the world of Urban Decay.

Summary:  The majority of the discontinued shades do not have exact dupes in the new formula.  The ones that came the closest to having something similar were Gravity, Jilted, Indecent, Revolution, and Rush.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (The Bolds)

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz. each) has been revamped, reformulated, and relaunched with sixteen shades. This post is featuring the brighter and bolder shades. The revamped Urban Decay lip pencil formula is creamy and glides on easily; it doesn’t pull, tug, or drag across the lips. Lip liners are one of my least favorite products to swatch on lips, because they can be really rough across the lips and doing more than one or two of them back-to-back is usually a recipe for sore lips later on. I had no trouble applying nine of these back-to-back, and that’s primarily because they really do glide across the lips and feel waxy, but they still deposit good color payoff as they move across the lips. On their own, they wear like iron and last anywhere from four to eight hours. Underneath a lipstick, they add two to three hours of wear, bringing total wear time of a shade like Bang lipstick (over Bang Lip Pencil) to eight hours of good wear to eight hours of really good wear and another two of lingering wear before reapplication was necessary.

Urban Decay Vice & Addiction Nail Colors

Urban Decay Vice Nail Color ($15.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich, deep purple with red and blue micro-shimmer.” It’s a deep, darkened purple with red shimmer. Vice was fully opaque with two coats of polish, and it applied so beautifully and fluidly. There was a luxuriousness to the polish that was definitely unexpected. It dries to a slight shine but needs a top coat to give it a really glassy look. I’ve been wearing this shade since I got it, and it’s been six days, and I have very minor tip wear and no chipping. There were no visible brush strokes, which was the part that impressed me most. Chanel Taboo is darker. China Glaze Urban Night is a cream. Zoya Jem is similar but has larger shimmer. See comparison swatches.
