Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss — Big Bang, Vice, Bittersweet, Liar, Failbait
Urban Decay Apocalypse Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep purple-wine.” It’s a lightly muted, dark plummy burgundy with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that felt smooth going on, but it looked somewhat uneven. The gloss lasted for six hours and was hydrating while worn. It feels non-sticky initially but gradually develops tackiness as the gloss wears down and has no discernible taste and very subtle sweet vanilla scent. MAC Sin (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Talk Sexy (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Dior Intrigue (995) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Modern Lure (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Sultana (LE, $20.00) is less glossy, lighter. Chanel Controversy (72) (P, $32.00) is warmer. MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is darker. MAC Flight of Fancy (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Midnight Violet (P, $24.00) is warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Urban Decay Bittersweet Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright purple.” It’s a medium-dark pink-based purple with a creamy, glossy finish. This was one of the worst performers–and one I so badly wanted to be true!purple!–with a very streaky application and semi-sheer color payoff. It lasted for five hours and was hydrating, but it looked so splotchy that I think the only way to wear it is to apply it over a lip liner or lipstick. NYX Berry Strudel (P, $6.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) (P, $28.00) is warmer. MAC Heroine (LE, $15.00) is pinker. MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Fierce (P, $22.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Urban Decay Vice Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark purple with glitter.” It’s a reddish-berry with cool undertones and subtle violet shimmer. The shimmer is fairly subtle, and it just has a very light dusting of sparkle that is fine enough that I never felt it while wearing the gloss. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but there’s noticeable translucency so the natural lip color will come through. On me, the gloss wore well for almost six hours and was nicely moisturizing while worn. Urban Decay Big Bang (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter. Maybelline Radiant Ruby (530) (P, $8.99) is sheerer. Chanel Crazy Fuchsia (194) (LE, $29.50) is brighter. Revlon HD Pink Ruby (515) (P, $8.99) is brighter. Sisley Paris Berry (5) (P, $50.00) is less glossy, lighter. NARS Sixties Fan (P, $26.00) is sheerer. NARS Quito (P, $26.00) is sheerer, less shimmery. Chanel Tocade (182) (P, $29.50) is less shimmery, sheerer. Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is brighter. Maybelline Caviar Couture (050) (P, $8.99) is darker, less shimmery. MAC Lust for Life (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker. NARS Mexican Rose (P, $24.00) is more muted.
