Urban Decay Speedball Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Speedball Revolution Lipstick
Urban Decay Speedball Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Speedball Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “deep, vibrant purple.” It’s a brightened, meidum-dark purple with warm, pinky undertones, very fine magenta and violet pearl, and a glossy sheen. Colour Pop Leather (P, $5.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Own the Look (LE, $19.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Zipper (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Strong Woman (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Punk Couture (P, $17.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Pandemonium (P, $17.00) is cooler, less glossy (85% similar). Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $17.00) is cooler, less glossy (85% similar). Colour Pop Lychee (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Heroine (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy (80% similar). Maybelline Vibrant Violet (P, $7.99) is lighter, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.

Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette for Holiday 2015

You can never have too much of a good thing. A brand new Vice Palette is coming soon. Here’s a sneak peek! #colorunleashed

A photo posted by Urban Decay Cosmetics (@urbandecaycosmetics) on

Urban Decay and its founder, Wende, have teased about the next edition of the Vice palette (presumably Vice 4 or something to that effect) that is “coming soon” (probably nearer to holiday season… which isn’t that far in terms of release dates, ha). More information to come as it becomes available. 🙂

Urban Decay Fall 2015 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils

Urban Decay 1993 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay 1993 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Urban Decay 1993 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “medium brown.” It’s a medium, caramel brown with warm, yellow undertones and a soft matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy, glide-on consistency that wore for six hours on me. MAC Nice ‘n’ Spicy (P, $19.50) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Bad Blood 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented, covered evenly, and lasted for eight hours. Urban Decay 69 (P, $19.00) is cooler. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $19.50) is cooler. Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $19.00) is brighter, cooler. MAC Cherry (P, ) is cooler. MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Bittersweet 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “bright purple.” It’s a brightened, fuchsia magenta with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, but I noticed that the texture of the pencil was firmer and didn’t glide on as easily as other shades. This shade lasted for six hours on its own. MAC Heroine (LE, ) is darker. MAC Fashion Boost (LE, $19.50) is darker. MAC Shock Value (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Blackmail 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep berry wine.” It’s a berry-burgundy with subtle, cool red undertones and a matte finish. This is probably one of the worst performing shades I’ve tried from the entire range of 24/7 Lip Pencils! It was semi-opaque with streaky, uneven color that tended to “thicken” in places. It may have lasted for eight hours, but it was clingy and somewhat drying over time. MAC Nightmoth (P, ) is darker, cooler. MAC Talk That Talk (LE, $19.50) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Stark Naked 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “light nude.” It’s a light, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a creamy, glide-on texture that was easy to use and didn’t tug at the lips. This shade wore well for six hours on its own. MAC Etcetera (P, $19.50) is darker, more muted. MAC Subculture (P, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a “creamy” pencil that “glides on smoothly” that prevents feathering and improve longevity. The 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 love how creamy, and almost wax-like, these feel, so they really go on smoothly without a lot of tug and don’t need a ton of pressure to get the color to adhere to the lips. They wear anywhere from six to eight hours on their own, and I typically find they add a few hours to my favorite lipstick if I use it underneath. They aren’t drying for me, though if your lips are naturally dry, then not having any hydrating element (say if you wore these alone) may leave your lips feeling dry after an eight-hour time period.

Urban Decay Backtalk & Carnal Matte Revolution Lipsticks

Urban Decay Backtalk Matte Revolution Lipstick
Urban Decay Backtalk Matte Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Backtalk Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte mauve-nude pink.” It’s a muted, medium pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. On me, it leans a little warm against my undertones, but it looks more cool-toned in the tube (to my eye). It had full color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly as the consistency was creamy and glided across the lips without dragging. This shade lasted for five and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Mehr (P, $16.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Indian Rose (P, $50.00) is darker, glossier. Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is less glossy. Givenchy Rose d’Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is warmer. NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is glossier. NARS Vanessa (P, $32.00) is lighter, glossier. NARS Anita (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier. Colour Pop Squeeze (LE, $5.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Addison (LE, $32.00) is lighter. Maybelline Touch of Spice (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer. Maybelline Touch of Spice (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer. Colour Pop Solow (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Carnal Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte medium warn nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark orange-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even color without dragging during application. The consistency was comfortable while the color lasted for seven hours on me. Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) (P, $7.49) is brighter, glossier. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted. NARS Femme Fleur (LE, $26.00) is brighter. Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is lighter. NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is warmer. MAC Mocha (P, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Both of these shades will be exclusive to UrbanDecay.com and freestanding Urban Decay stores beginning mid-August.

Formula Summary | Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new formula releasing on July 8th (later for retailers). There are eleven shades in the range with two exclusive to Urban Decay’s website and freestanding stores. The formula is supposed to be smooth, pigmented, creamy, and “provide long-lasting moisture.” It’s a very pigmented, semi-matte to natural finish formula that wears a really, really long time and wears away evenly without bleeding or feathering. My only issue with these is that they’re more of a satin finish than a true matte one, but if that’s not a deal-breaker, they’re worth checking out. I was extremely impressed by how long-wearing the formula was without being drying. I could wear a shade from 9AM to 9PM and not once think, “I really wish I could apply lip balm.” Some shades have more slip than others, and as a result, the ones with more slip have a more satin-like sheen to them, while a couple were less creamy and applied with more of a semi-matte finish from the get-go. Most shades wore down to a traditional matte (but not liquid lipstick flat-matte finish) within an hour to two of wear. The texture is significantly less creamy with a lot less slip compared to the Sheer Revolution and original Revolution formulas, which have a much more luminous sheen with a slight tackiness to the texture, whereas these have no tackiness and a more velvety feel (they remind me of NARS Audacious Lipsticks in that respect). These hug the lips more as a result but surprisingly, they’re very comfortable to wear. What’s particularly nice is that the texture has some creaminess and weight to it, so while it can transfer onto cups and the like, there’s so much of it that it doesn’t wear away the color, and you can also smooth out any smudges if you dabbed with a napkin. There was no discernible scent or taste.

Urban Decay Bad Blood Matte Revolution Lipstick
Urban Decay Bad Blood Matte Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Bad Blood Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte deep red.” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage (there was still a shadow of my lip freckle peeking through). The consistency was lightly creamy and applied easily without dragging on the lips. It hugged without feeling clingy, but it also ensured the color didn’t slip while on nor did I experience any feathering/bleeding (though neither are something I get frequently, for your reference). This shade lasted for nearly nine hours on me, and it felt a little drying after eight hours of wear. MAC Prolong (P, $18.00) is cooler, glossier. MAC Such Flare (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler. MAC Russian Red (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Charmed, I’m Sure (LE, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Charlotte (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. Besame American Beauty 1945 (P, $22.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Stunner (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Salon Rouge (LE, $16.00) is more muted, cooler, glossier. Chanel La Desiree (327) (LE, $34.00) is cooler. MAC Frank-n-furter (LE, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Just a Bite (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler, glossier. NYX Chic Red (P, $4.00) is lighter, cooler. NARS Mascate (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Temper Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte bright orange-red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. This was one of the more true matte shades in the range, though it’s not entirely flat. It had good color payoff that went on evenly and smoothly without emphasizing lip lines, despite its more matte finish. The color wore well for eight hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Dangerous (P, $16.00) is lighter. NARS Moscow (P, $26.00) is darker. NARS Golshan (P, $25.00) is darker. MAC Strange Journey (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Maybelline Craving Coral (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Rei of Light (212) (P, $30.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Flame (06) (P, $50.00) is lighter, brighter. NARS Marlene (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. NARS Rita (P, $32.00) is glossier. Kat Von D Countess (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. Givenchy Rouge d’Exception (308) (LE, $36.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Tilt Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte bright orange.” It’s a brightened, coral-orange with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich, intense pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even color. The texture glided on easily with enough slip to apply well but stayed on without feathering or sliding around the lips during wear. It wore well for eight hours, and it was just slightly drying after the sixth hour. MAC Rozz (LE, $16.00) is darker. Bite Beauty Blood Orange (LE, $24.00) is darker, warmer. Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is darker. MAC Toxic Tale (LE, $16.00) is cooler. Clinique Poppy Pop (P, $18.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
