This is a new shade that’s been added to the Revolution Lipstick range that is exclusive to UrbanDecay.com. If you’re unfamiliar with the Revolution formula, it’s supposed to have a “super creamy texture” with “insane pigmentation” while being a hydrating, long-wearing formula. The consistency of this is light-medium in thickness but feels fairly lightweight with a smidgen of tackiness that develops over time. It had more slip than some shades in the range, and it was only semi-opaque for me, so it didn’t apply as evenly (or look as smooth) as I would have liked (or compared to many shades in the formula). Applied, it wore for six hours, and it was nicely hydrating, but I had some color settle into lip lines. I’m so happy to see more and more purple lipsticks making it front and center these days–it feels like purple lip is a minor trend this year.
