Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (Vamps)

Urban Decay Venom Lipstick
Urban Decay Venom Lipstick

This is the last post looking at Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.), and it features the deeper, darker shades within the shade range. Please see part one for a more in-depth review of the formula overall.

Venom Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright plum.” It’s a rich, deepened berry-red with a violet and fuchsia shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage. It wore for six and a half hours and left a stain behind. Tom Ford Violet Fatale is lighter, brighter. MAC Rebel is slightly brighter. NARS Valparaiso is more matte, less bright. See comparison swatches.

Shame Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “deep berry.” It’s a deep, dark reddened burgundy with subtle hints of brown and ruby shimmer. This was my least favorite shade across the range because it really lacked the quality of the line in general; it was streaky, uneven, and had a tendency to feather after four hours of wear. The shade lasted well for six and a half hours and left an enduring stain behind, but the feathering (which is rare on me) was disappointing. MAC Soulfully Rich is darker, browner. MAC Endless Drama is warmer. MAC What Joy is lighter, redder. Guerlain Gigolo is brighter. Guerlain Orgueil is lighter, redder. OCC Black Dhalia is darker, less red. Burberry Bright Plum is much lighter and brighter. See comparison swatches.

Rapture Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “dusty rose.” It’s a pinky-plum with a glossy shine. It had full, opaque color coverage and applied smoothly. It wore four and a half hours when I tested it. Tom Ford Casablanca is more muted, less pink. MAC Red Dwarf is darker. Chanel Destinee is more muted. See comparison swatches.

Manic Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “soft wine.” It’s a bold, brightened plummy red with a soft pink shimmer. It had rich, full coverage color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly. This shade wore well for five hours when I tried it. MAC Heaux is cooler-toned, matte. Chanel Fiction is lighter. NARS Palais Royal is more berry-colored. Giorgio Armani #406 is similar, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (Beiges)

Urban Decay Liar Lipstick
Urban Decay Liar Lipstick

In this next look at Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.), we’re featuring several of the beige and brown shades available in the range. Please see part one for a more in-depth review of the formula overall.

Liar Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pinky-brown nude.” It is a warm, rosy, medium brown with a creamy and luminous finish. It had full color coverage when applied, and the color glided on evenly and smoothly. It lasted four hours when I wore it. NYX Haute Melon is warmer, sheerer. Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete is darker. Burberry Devon Sunset is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Lovelight Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pale peachy-pink shimmer.” It’s a subdued, warm-toned pink-coral with soft gold shimmer. Though there are two shades described as sheer by Urban Decay, this shade wasn’t one of them–and it is obviously semi-sheer. This shade lasted three and a half hours on me. Revlon Lover’s Coral is less shimmery, pinker. Tom Ford Frolic is warmer. NYX Haute Melon is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Naked 2 Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “medium beige-nude.” It’s a warm-toned, peach-beige with a luminous sheen. This shade was extra creamy and had more slip than other shades, so it tended to move around a bit and if you pressed your lips together, it would leave lines. This shade wore well for three and a half hours on me. Edward Bess Forbidden Flower is darker, warmer. MAC Sweet & Sour is slightly brighter. NARS Biscyane Park is very comparable. MAC Delectable is more matte, slightly darker. MAC Cozy Up is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Protest Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “sheer peachy nude.” It’s a medium-dark, subdued coral with a soft sheen. It wasn’t sheer, peachy, or nude (beige); it was fully pigmented at the very least. It lasted four and a half hours on me. MAC Style Surge is lighter. MAC Lady at Play is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches.

Strip Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “sheer medium mauve-nude.” It’s a subdued, plummy brown with a luminous sheen. It had full color coverage (not in the least bit sheer!) and applied evenly. This shade wore well for four and a half hours when I tried it. Bobbi Brown Soft Nude is more beige. MAC Spice is comparable. Guerlain Avarice is brighter. Giorgio Armani #526 is more shimmery. Burberry Antique Pink is more matte. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (Warm Pinks)

Urban Decay Fiend Lipstick
Urban Decay Fiend Lipstick

In this next look at Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.), we’re featuring several of the warmer pink shades available in the range. Please see part one for a more in-depth review of the formula overall.

Fiend Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “muted rose.” It’s a subdued, medium rosy pink with a luminous sheen. It had rich, full color coverage and applied smoothly and evenly. Fiend wore four hours on me. Bobbi Brown nude Rose is darker, less pink. Giorgio Armani Blush is warmer, more beige. MAC Elegant Accent is warmer. Chanel Hyde Park is brighter, pinker. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Native Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pale pink.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium pink with a glossy sheen. It had opaque color payoff, and it applied evenly for the most part, but the lighter color did make it more apparent if you pressed your lips together–you could see very faint lines at times. It wore for three and a half hours on me. NARS Bolero is warmer, lighter, matte. MAC You’re Perfect Already is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Dreaminess is lighter. MAC Vivid Imagination is pinker. MAC Please Me is cooler-toned, darker. MAC Haute Altitude is darker. Burberry Tulip Pink is more muted. Bobbi Brown Miami Coral is slightly warmer.
See comparison swatches.

Burberry Tulip Pink is lighter. Bobbi Brown Miami Coral is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Rush Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pink-mauve.” It’s a muted, medium rosy pink with a soft shine. It had full color coverage and applied well, and it lasted for four hours when I wore it.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (Cool Pinks)

Urban Decay Jilted Lipstick
Urban Decay Jilted Lipstick

In this next look at Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.), we’re featuring several of the cooler-toned pinks available in the range. Please see part one for a more in-depth review of the formula overall.

Jilted Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “deep fuchsia shimmer with blue shift.” It’s a vibrant, brightened fuchsia-red with iridescent shimmer and a soft sheen. The consistency is thinner than other shades in the range, and it had mostly opaque color coverage, but there was a very, very subtle translucency that gave this shade a stain-like appearance. It lasted for six and a half hours well and left behind a stain for another two hours. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible is cooler-toned, less red. Guerlain Girly has less shimmer. NARS 413 BLKR is more matte. NARS Jardin des Plantes is lighter. Guerlain Gigi is lighter, less shimmery. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is pinker. OCC Queen is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Anarchy Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright fuchsia.” It’s a bold, vibrant fuchsia-magenta with cool, blue undertones and a glossy sheen. It’s incredibly pigmented with opaque color in a single stroke. The consistency is creamy enough that it glides on readily but doesn’t slide around or feather outside the natural lip line. It wore for six hours well and left a fuchsia stain for another hour or so. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia is similar. Maybelline Fuchsia Flash is slightly less blue-based. Maybelline Hot Plum is a touch darker. MAC Dear Diary is lighter. MAC Night Blooming is purpler. MAC Show Orchid is darker, shimmery. MAC Pink Pigeon is more matte. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl is more subdued. MAC Candy Yum Yum is brighter. OCC Nylon is brighter and lighter. See comparison swatches.

Obsessed Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright baby pink.” It’s a subtly, cool-toned cotton candy pink with a luminous sheen. It had good color payoff, and the consistency had slightly more slip than some of the other shades, so it can get streaky if too much is applied. It wore for four hours when I tested it. MAC Raspberry Swirl is lighter, cool-toned. Maybelline Pink Pop is brighter, bluer. MAC Divine Choice is similar. MAC Pink Nouveau is bluer-based. OCC Narcissus is purpler. OCC Femme is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches.

Turn On Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “rosy pink.” It’s a vibrant, cool-toned, medium pink with a luminous sheen. It had rich, full color coverage, and it applied evenly and smoothly. Turn On wore well for five hours when I tested it. MAC Speak Louder is darker. Chanel Insolente is warmer. Bobbi Brown Wild Rose is more muted, darker. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (Reds & Oranges)

Urban Decay 69 Lipstick
Urban Decay 69 Lipstick

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is back with a new and improved formula (as well as packaging). Urban Decay’s bringing back lipstick, and they’re doing in in a major, major way with twenty-two shades from bold, bright, and wickedly vibrant to soft, subdued, and natural. The formula is creamy, lightweight, and glides on with nearly full color coverage in a single pass. They wear anywhere from four to seven hours, with some leaving behind a stain for another one to two hours. The lighter shades tended to wear around four hours, while deeper and bolder shades lasted an average of six hours. The creamy consistency is comfortable to wear but doesn’t bleed or feather, while the formula itself is moisturizing. I didn’t detect any scent or flavor! This post focuses on the red and orange shades within the range.

69 Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright red with pink undertone.” It’s a bold, brightened medium-dark red with subtle cool undertones and a creamy finish. It was richly pigmented and lasted for six and a half hours, and it did leave a stain behind. Edward Bess Eternal Passion is very slightly lighter. Chanel Dialogue is more muted. Giorgio Armani Red Fuchsia is similar. NYX Chic Red is more matte. MAC Everyday Diva is warmer. MAC Ronnie Red is darker, more matte. Guerlain Gwen is slightly darker. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

F-Bomb Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a neutral-warm, medium red with a glossy shine. It looks warm on me, but it looks somewhat cool or neutral in the tube, so this may turn warmer/cooler depending on your undertones. It had rich, full color coverage and wore for six hours well. NARS Mysterious Red is matte. Maybelline Infra-red is warmer. MAC Red Racer is similar. MAC Must Be Red is more muted. MAC Cockney is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Catfight Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pink-fuchsia with slight red undertone.” It’s a pinky-red–almost a warm fuchsia–but it is still slightly cool-toned that is finished with a creamy shine. It had intense, full color coverage, and it wore well for six and a half hours. It also left behind a stain for another hour or so. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible #205 is cooler-toned, more fuchsia. Revlon Sorbet is sheerer, lighter. Tom Ford Aphrodisiac is cooler-toned. Guerlain Girly is cooler-toned. NARS Jardin des Plantes is shimmery. MAC Moxie is more matte. MAC Impassioned is lighter. Guerlain Gigi is a touch lighter. Guerlain Gourmandise is similar. See comparison swatches.

Bang Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright orange-red.” It is rich in color and intensely pigmented with fully opaque color and a soft, luminous sheen. It wore well, lasting six and a half hours, and left behind a soft stain. Maybelline Orange Edge is slightly redder. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is also slightly redder. Maybelline Electric Orange is lighter. MAC Fashion Nomad is lighter. MAC Scarlet Ibis is more matte, a touch redder. MAC Sail La Vie is similar. MAC Morange and MAC Neon Orange are lighter. MAC Lady Danger is more matte. Buxom Rogue is similar. OCC Psycho is a touch browner and more matte. See comparison swatches.

Streak Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “coral pink.” It’s a warm-toned, coral-pink with a glossy shine. It had rich, full color coverage, and the consistency seemed slightly slicker than other shades.  It has a tendency to create “lines” if you press your lips together, so it could look somewhat streaky (ha, ha) if you aren’t careful. This shade wore well for four hours. Chanel Saga is warmer, lighter. Chanel Liaison is similar, less shine. NYX Stella is pinker. MAC Elegant Accent is darker, brighter. MAC Flamingo is slightly lighter. MAC Betty Bright is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Delice (78) Joues Contraste Powder Blush

Chanel Delice (78) Joues Contraste Powder Blush
Chanel Delice (78) Joues Contraste Powder Blush

Chanel Delice (78) Joues Contraste Powder Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale, aqua-shimmered white highlighter. In the promo photos, it looked more minty green, and in real life, it looked nearly white except for a very faint hint of green–but at a glance, it looked mostly white. Giorgio Armani Moonlight White #1 is similar. Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

I worried that such a pale color would turn chalky or ashy against my medium skin tone, but it actually worked quite well as a highly reflective, shimmered highlighter, so I was happy to see it will be something that not just very fair complexions can use. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and easy to blend on the skin. In the photo below, I wore it on top of my cheek bones and lightly on my nose and brow bone. It is somewhat buildable, so you can go from a very translucent, almost finishing-like effect to a more obvious shimmer-sheen finish (like I wore on cheeks). A heavier application did emphasize pores slightly that was visible at a close distance but not from afar, while a lighter application gave a soft all-over glow without emphasizing any imperfections. It lasted well for seven hours, and after eight hours, it looked slightly patchy.
