Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend, Phone Call, Firebird 24/7 Lip Pencils

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “nude rose.” It’s a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on evenly and only clung somewhat. The texture was still less waxy than I’m used to from this formula, but it was easier to use than most of the other shades in the spring launch. It wore for six hours before fading. MAC Staunchly Stylish (P, $19.50) is darker (90% similar). MAC Nice 'n' Spicy (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Deep (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Morning Coffee (P, $19.50) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Phone Call 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia-pink.” It’s a bright, medium-darkw fuchsia-coral with warm-ish undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a slightly dry, firm consistency. It covered better and delivered smoother results, but it dragged and took awhile to fill in the lips due to how jagged everything looked. The color wore for over six hours. MAC Dynamo (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Embrace Me (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Firebird 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a bright, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and subtle silver sparkle over a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a drier, firmer consistency that dragged and tugged. It would be manageable to use to liner the edge of the lips, but for filling in, it was pretty rough. The color started to fade from the center of the lips noticeably after four hours. Tom Ford Beauty I'll Teach You (Lip Shaper) (P) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Anarchy (P, $20.00) is brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 714, Rock Steady, Wonderland 24/7 Lip Pencils

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

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 Cherry (P) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Trust in Red (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $19.50) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Fighter (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Shaper) (P) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Rock Steady 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “blood red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it had similar issues with texture that made it harder to apply evenly. It had a tendency to drag and skip, so short, feathery strokes are a must, and it’s not my ideal formula for filling in lips entirely but would be tolerable to outline with. The color wore well for at least six hours but was very drying. Urban Decay Bad Blood (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Kiss Me Quick (P, $19.50) is more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Shaper) (P) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Wonderland 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “dark pink-red.” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia-red with strong, blue-toned pink undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on slightly unevenly as the texture was thinner and less creamy, so it drags a little and is harder to apply. It was incredibly drying and clingy on, which was disappointing as the 24/7 formula is my absolute favorite for lip pencils as it is one of the more comfortable ones to apply and wear (like one of the few that I typically find lightly drying or non-drying!). It was still mostly intact after six hours of wear. MAC Trust in Red (P, $19.50) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Secret Escort (Lip Shaper) (P) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

* It’s going to take me under later in the week to get to the other three lip pencils. These caused some lingering damage to my lips due to how drying they were, and frankly, that’s not something I associate with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Lip Pencil formula. These lacked the glide that I’ve always loved Urban Decay’s lip pencils for. According to Urban Decay, the formula is designed to have long-wear, prevent feathering, be creamy, waterproof, go on smoothly, and “nourish the skin” — just for reference.

NARS Magnificent Obsession Lip Set

NARS Magnificent Obsession Lip Set ($49.00 for 0.188 oz.) includes three warm red-hued lip products. You can wear them together or alone, and they coordinate well together.

Flamenco (Lipstick) is described as a “sheer candy apple red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium pinky-red with warm undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that had a little slip but didn’t slide around on the lips. The color wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Sheer F-Bomb (P, $17.00) is brighter (95% similar). Chanel Rouge Rebelle (172) (P, $36.00) is cooler (95% similar). Chanel Histoire (206) (P, $37.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Givenchy Rouge Atelier (302) (P, $36.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Brave Red (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel La Bouleversante (51) (P, $36.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Dialogue (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). Too Faced Red Stiletto (P, $22.00) is glossier (85% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn (DC, $22.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mysterious Red (Velvet Matte Lip Pencil) is described as a “crimson red.” It’s a medium-dark red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, velvety consistency that glided across the lips easily and sat well. This shade wore for over six hours and was very lightly drying after four hours of wear. MAC Feels So Grand (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Outlaw (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Reddy to Go (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M402 (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Milani Desire (LE, $8.99) is less glossy (95% similar). Maybelline Dynamite Red (P, $7.49) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Bad Blood (DC, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Russian Red (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Golshan (P, $25.00) is glossier (95% similar). NARS Codie (LE, $32.00) is more muted, glossier (95% similar). MAC Steam Heat (LE, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Lost (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Anastasia American Doll (P, $20.00) is glossier (95% similar). Too Faced Lady Balls (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

NARS Rouge Indiscret (LE, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Misdmeneaor (Velvet Lip Liner) is described as a “crimson red.” It’s a medium, pinky-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture is slightly stiff/dry, so it does tug on the lips when used. It will wear for five to six hours, but I did find it somewhat drying on its own. MAC Redd (P) is warmer (85% similar).

NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set

NARS A Woman's Face Lip Set
NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set

NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set ($49.00 for 0.188 oz.) includes a lipstick, lip pencil, and lip liner coordinated in the hue of warm plum. These are all permanent shades, so if you like one, you could grab it individually. The set coordinates well, so they can be layered easily; what’s nice is that the lipstick is a sheerer, glossier version of the pencil and lip liner, which means it adds a more hydrating element to the trio.

Dolca Vita (Lipstick) is a muted, medium-dark plummy red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It is part of the Sheer Lipstick range, so it is, as you might expect, on the sheerer side. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lightweight, somewhat slippery consistency that is thin and looks and feels more like a light lip balm than traditional lipstick. It applied evenly with smooth color that looked a lot like a lip stain (but this shade may not appear like much on those with naturally redder or darker lips). The color lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Tarte Praise (LE, $24.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Estee Lauder Irresistible (P, $30.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Urban Decay Strip (DC, $22.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Tarte Punch (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Buxom Hooligan (P, $21.00) is more pigmented, glossier (90% similar). MAC Amor Prohibido (LE, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Givenchy Moka Imprime (304) (P, $36.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dolca Vita (Velvet Matte Lip Pencil) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety feel applied to the lips, so it didn’t tug and glided across easily. This is a pencil you’ll need to sharpen, which is sometimes a deal-breaker. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Liar (DC, $22.00) is more muted, glossier (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Nectar (P, $26.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Fashion Force (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Etonnante (131) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar). Urban Decay Protest (DC, $22.00) is glossier (90% similar). Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Feel the Love (LE, $20.00) is more muted, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Double Dare (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Lady at Play (P, $23.00) is brighter, glossier (85% similar). MAC Aim to Please (P, $20.00) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar). NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is lighter, glossier (80% similar). Laura Mercier Cozy (P, $24.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). Colour Pop Bumble (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). MAC Runway Hit (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Donut (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (P, $50.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Patong Beach (Velvet Lip Liner) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, but it is buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The Velvet Lip Liner formula is supposed to be “pigment-rich” while filling and preventing feathering on the lips with “long-wearing, comfortable wear.” I find that they tend to be a little dry so they tug on the lips, and while not the most drying lip pencil, it’s not comfortable on its own for me. It is clingy and lightly to moderately drying, even though it does last for six hours. MAC Half-Red (P) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.

MAC Pretty Natural Lip Kit

MAC Pretty Natural Lip Kit
MAC Pretty Natural Lip Kit

MAC Pretty Natural Lip Kit ($29.50 for 0.31 oz.) is a pinky-beige set of shades, all in full-size, so this is one of the better value kits from Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. The set of shades works well together, and for what they are, they are decent. I find MAC’s Lip Pencil formula to be harder to apply as it is quite stiff/firm, and it is quite drying. The lipstick was the best of the set.

Pretty Natural is described as a “midtone warm nude.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-beige with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on fairly evenly, though the color had a tendency to pull into lip lines (which worsened as it wore). The texture was creamy and glided on without tugging, while the color itself lasted for four hours and was neither hydrating nor drying. MAC High Tea (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Japanese Maple (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Love Happens (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Naked Dream (LE, $16.00) is cooler, less glossy. MAC Boca (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler. Marc Jacobs Beauty Roleplay (110) (P, $30.00) is darker. Charlotte Tilbury Confession (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker. Bobbi Brown Blush (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Wear with Flare (LE, $22.00) is brighter, warmer. MAC Wear with Flare (LE, $22.00) is brighter, warmer. NARS Barbara (P, $32.00) is darker. Guerlain Galiane (15) (P, $51.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Feeling Fine is described as a “soft beigey pink with pearl.” It’s a light, pink-beige with multi-colored shimmer (a mix of lavender, gold, white, and pink). On the lips, it is sheer, so it doesn’t add a lot of color, and I noticed the lighter base color was visibly lightening my natural lip color while adding noticeable shimmer–but your mileage will vary a lot on this one, as it will depend vastly on your natural lip color. The gloss had a light-medium weight to it, was tacky, and stayed put for three hours. This shade has been released previously (but has always been a limited edition shade). L’Oreal Pretty Precious (LE, $9.99) is less glossy. MAC Dressed to Dazzle (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Star (LE, $29.50) is lighter. Maybelline A Wink of Pink (P, $4.49) is less shimmery, darker, more pigmented. Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Buzz (324) (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Revlon Snow Pink (P, $7.99) is more pigmented. MAC Boundless Beige (P, $19.50) is lighter. MAC Rags to Riches (P, $20.00) is more shimmery. MAC Poetic (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented. MAC Lovingly Yours (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented. Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is cooler. MAC Steel Kiss (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. NARS Bimini (P, $26.00) is more shimmery. MAC Oh My Darling (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. Dior No Angel (353) (P, $29.50) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Subculture is described as am “underground pink.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had a dryer, firmer consistency which really needs firm pressure to achieve color coverage. I’m not a big fan of the standard MAC Lip Pencil formula as I find them hard to use all-over the lips and mildly tolerable along just the edges of the lips. This is part of the permanent range. It lasted for six hours but is pretty drying on its own. MAC Boldly Bare (P, ) is lighter, brighter, warmer. MAC Boldly Bare (P, ) is lighter, brighter, warmer. MAC Nice ‘n’ Spicy (P, $19.50) is darker, cooler. MAC Etcetera (P, $19.50) is darker, cooler. MAC Have to Have It (LE, ) is cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
