Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 714 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a medium red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The 714 lipstick pulled warm to my eye, and when I swatched them side-by-side, it definitely has an orange-tint and is lighter, while the lip pencil looks almost muted and berry-ish in comparison. Together, they layer and create a very true, retro red. The texture of the pencil was much less waxy compared to the formula I’m used to, and it is less comfortable to apply and wear. It lasted for six hours or longer (it was still going strong after six hours), but it was drying on its own. Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (LE) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $19.50) is darker, brighter (95% similar). MAC Cherry (P) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Trust in Red (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Fighter (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar).
