Urban Decay Gravity Lipstick

The Scarlet Season: Urban Decay Gravity Lipstick

Urban Decay Gravity Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich, ruby-esque shade of red with maybe a little tinge of raspberry in it. It has a very soft microsparkle of red, but overall, it has a creamy, glossy finish. All of Urban Decay’s lipsticks have a faint sweetened caramel brulee kind of scent, though I don’t find much taste in the lipsticks from my experience. Gravity applies easily and leaves lips hydrated, with the color wearing four to six hours easy. I’d say this is definitely one of my favorite shades I’ve discovered so far during the series.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

    This red is pretty too, I like the slight sheerness to it, but at the same time it has decent pigmentation.

    Why do all of the Urban Decay lipsticks have to be so pretty? Lol, I have a sample of Gash (which I love) but I don’t know if I want to shell out $22 a lipstick. Plus, I dont like the little dagger at the bottom of the tube. But this color, Revolution, Sellout, and Jilted are sooo pretty that I would never be able to choose just one!

    • LOL! Maybe because they totally reformulated and went back to the drawing board–at least in a sense–a few years ago!

      I think the dagger is fun at first, but it’s impractical. You can’t stand it up so you can see the name (which is on the “top” of the lipstick–the flat side), and you can’t stand it up on the dagger… eh it’s pretty or creative but not so functional!

    hi christine! i am now a temptalia junkie and you’ve also gotten me obsessed with glitter nailpolish… i literally just walked by a nail salon and swooned over the opi holiday collection. there are some BEAUTIFUL reds and very unique purples and browns. would love to see your reviews. i bought four!

  11. Oooh, I’ll have to check this out! It looked like it would be sheer, but it’s perfect coverage!

  12. Miss_Silk

    Very Pretty! It reminds me of a nail polish color i used to have….

  13. Lorna

    very nice in the tube but it looks fairly sheer on the skin. does that make it more wearable and buildable?

  14. Luisafer

    though this was going to look better, but too light, not my favorite of the bunch.

    Okay, so I’ve seen two reviews of this color on youtube now, I wasn’t able to swatch it at my Sephora since it was out for the tester and they didn’t have it in stock. But, people complained about Gravity having a weird, bitter taste, did you notice that at all?

  16. J

    I was hoping it’d be more opaque =/

  17. Oooh, that looks so pretty in the tube… that it’s a little disappointing on the lips, actually!

  18. Vivi

    Uhh I really like it. Are you going to feature “MAC Red” in your “scarlet season”?

    I bought it but unfortunately what looked like a beautiful red on my computer turned out to be more burgundy when I received it. I can still make it work though by layering a lighter gloss over it. The shade it ok if you are into the dark shades but it’s not what I consider “red.” If you are looking for Christmas/Santa Claus red I’d take a pass on this one.

    I didn’t notice any strange taste like someone mentioned.

  20. I totally ordered this from my F&F sale at UD. can’t wait to get it! :D

    Christine is always making me spend money. lol. -_-‘
