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.

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.

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.
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.
