Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Round-up

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss
Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

This spring,¬†Urban Decay Rule34 Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss ($20.00 for TBA fl. oz.) launches as the newest (but permanent) gloss formula as part of the Naked range. ¬†It’s a sheer, hydrating, creamy gloss that feels fairly lightweight. ¬†The consistency is somewhere between gel, cream, and lip balm (the kinds found in tubes, not the stick variety). ¬†They’re very comfortable to wear and last between three and four hours on me (about average). ¬†I didn’t notice any taste, but they are scented with sweet mint (like the¬†Lip Junkies). ¬†Shades like Lovechild and Streak don’t apply as evenly as I’d like, but shades like Beso, Naked, and Freestyle are great options for anyone who likes sheer lipgloss. ¬†(If you aren’t into sheer lipgloss, consider the Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color¬†range instead.) ¬†But as a result of the sheer quality of the glosses, they tend to look more alike once applied than they do in the tubes, as the image above illustrates, so you probably don’t need every single shade! ¬†There are subtle differences, and the biggest difference is often shimmer versus no-shimmer.

Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder

Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder
Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder

Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder ($34.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new (and permanent) product being added to the Naked Skin range this spring. It’s supposed to be a “silky, weightless formula” that gives a “luminous, demimatte Naked finish” while setting makeup, reducing shining, and blurring flaws. There are five shades in the formula (see this post for Urban Decay’s recommendations).

It’s an incredibly finely-milled loose powder; it almost melts into skin because it is so, so fine. It feels like silk, and it blends and disappears into skin seamlessly. No matter how much I applied, it never looked powdery or cakey. My normal-to-dry skin looked nearly flawless after applying this, and it mattified a good deal, but it didn’t leave my skin looking dull or flat. ¬†The effect is quite lovely, especially for anyone who is looking to minimize the appearance of their pores, as this powder does an excellent job of blurring and smoothing the skin. ¬†It’s a very breathable, featherweight formula, too, so it doesn’t feel heavy or like you’re wearing powder at all. ¬†As a setting powder, it extends the wear of my foundation by an hour to an hour and a half and does minimize how much shine comes through overall.

I used Medium Light, which looks a bit darker than Medium to me. The differences between Medium Light, Medium, and Medium Dark are very slight; Light is definitely lighter than the rest, and Dark is several shades darker than Medium Dark. ¬†I even swatched Medium Light and¬†Medium next to each other, and there’s almost no difference in lightness/darkness, just that Medium Light has a stronger yellow undertone, which is hard to see except at a very severe angle under bright light.¬†Each shade is very forgiving, as they are translucent (as described), so the color looks invisible on skin.

Compared to the Pressed Finishing Powder, I think these allow for a more natural finish, probably because of the loose consistency, it applies less as you go along than with the pressed. The Pressed is slightly more matte in finish when applied, and it seems to have a stronger tint/amount of coverage (though still sheer).

Here’s a look at the last three glosses from the new Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss range! You can see the first three here and second set of three here. ¬†To recap, Urban Decay Rule34 Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a new (and permanent) formula that’s supposed to be hydrating, comfortable to wear, high-gloss, and creamy. They have a light, creamy consistency that is non-sticky (but does gradually get a smidgen tacky after two to three hours of wear) and comfortable to wear. It’s hydrating, lasts between three and four hours, and is scented with sweet mint. The only downsides are that some glosses settle into lip lines or apply unevenly, but it depends on the shade.

Rule34 is described as a “medium brown-nude.” It’s a medium brown with a subtle rosy tint and a cream finish. The color coverage was semi-sheer, and the gloss applied evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines. It wore well for three and a half hours. Marc Jacobs Beauty Heart Shaped (308) (P, $28.00) is shimmery. MAC Everlasting Nude (LE, $19.50) is more opaque. Chanel Genie (P, $32.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Streak is described as a “coral-peach.” It’s warm-toned, medium peach with a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it applied evenly for the most part. The gloss lasted just over three hours on me. The difference between this and Rule34 are pretty slim when applied. Marc Jacobs Beauty Heart Shaped (308) (P, $28.00) is shimmery. MAC Meteoric (LE, $20.00) is darker, pinker. Chanel Nakkar (P, $29.50) is shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Walk of Shame is described as a “pale nude-pink with subtle micro-shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with subtle gold micro-shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff when applied to lips. It just barely settled into lip lines, but you couldn’t tell from a normal viewing distance. It applied evenly overall, and the gloss wore well for three hours on me. bareMinerals Dazzler (LE, $18.00)is similar. MAC Richer, Lusher (LE, $20.00) is pinker. MAC Kiss Me Softly (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Boy Bait (P, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Lovechild, Naked, Nooner Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses

Urban Decay Lovechild Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss
Urban Decay Lovechild Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

Here’s a look at the next three glosses from the new Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss range! You can see the first three here. ¬†To recap, Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a new (and permanent) formula that’s supposed to be hydrating, comfortable to wear, high-gloss, and creamy. They have a light, creamy consistency that is non-sticky (but does gradually get a smidgen tacky after two to three hours of wear) and comfortable to wear. It’s hydrating, lasts between three and four hours, and is scented with sweet mint. The only downsides are that some glosses settle into lip lines or apply unevenly, but it depends on the shade.

Lovechild is described as a “medium pink.” It’s a medium pink with soft, blue undertones and a cream finish. This one settles into lip lines somewhat, and it doesn’t look even at all times–it’s prone to showing “lines” where you’ve pressed your lips together. It had semi-sheer color payoff, and it wore well for three hours on me. Maybelline Mauve Mystique (025) (P, $8.99) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Sugar Pink (P, $45.00) is less cool-toned. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $19.00) is lighter. MAC Going Casual (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Pagoda (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. Chanel Insolence (P, $32.00) is less cool-toned. See comparison swatches.

Naked is described as a “nude-pink with pearly pink shift.” It’s a warm-toned, medium brown with rose tonts and pink and white micro-shimmer. It was semi-sheer on lips and added warmth and shimmer. It applied evenly and wore well for three and a half hours. Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is browner. MAC Sublime Shine (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Dynasty at Dusk (LE, $20.00) is also similar. MAC Double Happiness (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Naked is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Nooner is described as a “light neutral nude.” It’s a light-medium, muted coral with warm undertones and a mostly creamy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and though it settled into lip lines just slightly, it did apply evenly otherwise. It lasted for three and a half hours on me. MAC Warm Embrace (P, $15.00) is more shimmery. MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Richer, Lusher (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Kiss Me Softly (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Boy Bait (P, $20.00) is lighter, less pink. See comparison swatches.
