Urban Decay Backtalk & Carnal Matte Revolution Lipsticks

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.

Urban Decay Bad Blood, Temper, Tilt Matte Revolution Lipsticks

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.

Urban Decay 1993, Stark Naked, Blackmail Matte Revolution Lipsticks

Urban Decay 1993 Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte medium-brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with rosy undertones and an almost warm-taupe leaning. It had a natural finish, which is glossier than a true satin (to me)–the sheen was noticeable until an hour and a half into wear, and then it was more satiny. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully with smooth, even coverage that was comfortable to wear but didn’t slide around. It wore for eight hours and didn’t feel drying (I want to say it is a little hydrating, but more in the sense that my lips don’t feel worse for wearing it while it is not hydrating my lips more–maintaining their moisture-level). MAC Double Shot (P, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Tabla (P, $16.00) is darker, brighter. NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer, less glossy. Maybelline Touchable Taupe (940) (P, $7.49) is lighter, glossier. Bite Beauty Marzipan (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Gustavo (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is lighter, less glossy. MAC Whirl (P, $16.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy. Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is lighter, cooler, less glossy.

Urban Decay After Dark, Bittersweet, Menace Matte Revolution Lipsticks

Urban Decay After Dark Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte medium-dark berry pink.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark berry with cool, pink-red undertones and fine, iridescent violet pearl paired with a satin finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The color lasted for nine hours on me, but even after a full twelve hours (and two meals and two coffees), there was still 65% (or so) color left on my lips. It didn’t feel hydrating, but it never felt drying, and it might actually be a little hydrating to leave lips feeling no worse for the wear even twelve hours later. It faded evenly and didn’t pull into lines, nor did it feather on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty Little Pretty (130) (P, $30.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Wolvesmouth (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy. MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Gucci Beauty Tiger Lily (P, $39.00) is more shimmery, brighter, glossier. Tom Ford Beauty Didier (LE, $32.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Acai (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Alasdhair (LE, $32.00) is darker, warmer, glossier. Too Faced Metallic Jelly (P, $21.00) is glossier. Tom Ford Beauty Moroccan Rouge (DC, $50.00) is brighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new formula that takes the Revolution formula we’ve become accustomed to and given it more of a matte finish. There will be nine shades available. I don’t have a full press release yet, but according to Wende’s Instagram, it’s a “comfy version of matte” that will release this July 8th. As soon as I have full details, I’ll be sure to post, and reviews to come as I work through testing these :)
