A mini of F-Bomb got me hooked on this formula, which is rich, long-wearing but not drying. Manic is my "every day" shade - a rich plummy berry shade. I find that in general, these lipsticks wear really well and when they do shade, they leave behind a stain that is even and flattering looking, even if you don't get a chance to re-apply.

Definitely not sheer or peachy - if that's what you're looking for, check out Lovelight or Sheer Streak. Protest is a rich warm nude on me. I highly recommend this if the trendy "nude lip" is too ashy or cool-toned, which is what I kept running into.

I love love LOVE this lipstick. I'm a huge fan of the Revolution formula. I used this with MAC's Prep and Prime lip primer and UD 69 lip liner, and it lasted from 11 AM to 6 PM with little fading (which is like a world record for me!). I use a brush to apply it, as I find that the wide flat tip deposits too much product on my lips, causing it to get thick and gunky along the inside of my lip.

I got a mini of F-Bomb with some purchase at Sephora (or maybe with VIB points). Despite my objection to the name (I lament this "trend" toward making vulgar names "mainstream" as it is just so lacking in real class), I LOVE this lipstick. It lights up my whole face and while the colour is just a hair more orange-leaning than I'd like ideally, I cannot believe how long and how well this formula lasts! After putting this aside for a while, I've worn it for the last few days and even with no time to touch up through the day, I still have colour left on my lips by 4 pm (after applying at 6 am) and while it has faded, it has faded evenly and nicely. What's equally amazing is that this lipstick doesn't seem to dry out my lips at all. I will definitely be purchasing a few more of this formula in slightly cooler tones. I just can't believe what a great lipstick formula this is (now, if they'd just do something about the childish "I know some dirty words and I'm determined to use them" names!)

My first UD Revolution lipstick was Venom, but I decided I wanted to get another one that's just a bit lighter. This lipstick reminds me a lot of "Cherries in the Snow" by Revlon, a color I used to wear all the time. However, Jilted is even better because of the purple shimmer in it. I can't get enough of the shimmer! It captures great in certain lighting and photos. Gorgeous, fun color. Long-lasting as well. Only needs touch-ups if you eat a large meal.

This has been my go-to bold lipstick for awhile now. It's such a pretty color and it has an added bit of purple shimmer that looks amazing under certain lights. The formula is not quite like anything I've ever seen. This is worth it just for the beautiful purple-ish shimmer alone! Fairly long-lasting as well. I only need to touch it up a little after eating a large meal.

I bought this color when these lipsticks first came out and man was I not disappointed! I've never bought a color like Venom before but it was the beginning of Fall and I was determined to jump on purple/plum lipstick train. I usually wear this with the matching lip pencil so I don't know if the results would be different without it. My one and only complaint is the shape of the lipstick. The round shape makes it a little hard to stay inside the lines but the color payoff and long lasting wear time make this lipstick worth it! I wore this lipstick almost every day during the Fall and Winter but I still have a ton left, you are definitely getting your money's worth.

I love Lovelight! It is my perfect "Better than my Lips" color. When I first bought it, it was a bit difficult to put on. It tugged at my lips as I put it on. Once I used the lipstick a few times, it goes on really smooth. :)

Great color for complementing a smoky eye. If you want to play up the eyes, and do the nude lip on lighter skin, this does the trick for me. Wear time was approximately 10AM to 4PM.

I bought "Jilted" today (08/16/13) at the Ulta at Deptford, NJ, after experimenting with many colors on my hand. I am very pale, with coppery colored hair and blue eyes, so I need to be mindful of works for me. I wanted a punchy color, but not too much. I put it on at 3PM, and by 8PM, it was still there, without bleeding, fading or transferring to my teeth. I am so happy that I went with "Jilted". I love it!!! I wonder which will be my next color to buy....

THIS. LIPSTICK. IS. AMAZING. I'm only just getting into high-end makeup and had basically thought that paying 15 bucks for a MAC lipstick was expensive enough. However, Urban Decay hasn't let me down yet so I figured I'd try out these new lipsticks. I got this color and F-Bomb (which might be my new HG red lipstick because holy WOW, it's such an awesome rock star red color) and they are so worth the cost! I wanted a color somewhat like MAC's Candy Yum-Yum but not in a matte finish and Anarchy looked close. It's definitely a super vivid bright blue-pink. The lipstick is so pigmented in only one sweep--and that one sweep soaks every inch of your lips in color. I've always had trouble with getting color in the fine lines of my lips but this lipstick has no problem with that. Because of this, the lipstick does actually succeed at its claim that it makes your lips look fuller. There's no scent or taste as far as I can tell. The color also lasts for a really long time without killing my lips. I will say that though I love the packaging and size (it looks classy and feels appropriately heavy), I'm not a huge fan of the shape. I've got a very defined Cupid's Bow and the round shape makes it hard to color in that area without also coloring in the little divot between the Bow. I suppose that that would be easy enough to fix with a lip brush. End of the story is that this lipstick is AWESOME.
