Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

The Scarlet Season: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a vibrant, true red with a creamy texture, glossy finish, and goes on opaque with little fuss. It applies surprisingly smooth and easily, without any feathering or bleeding from the get-go (but as with any red lipstick or gloss, I always recommend a lip liner for secure color). This is a shade that doesn’t run too blue or too orange, though if pressed, I’d consider it a blue-red. I love the glossiness of the finish, because it almost looks like you’ve already topped it with clear gloss.

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!

  2. Emm

    I wonder if it would look right on all skin tones.. mmmmm will have to test.

  3. Cathy

    That is such a gorgeous color but i am afraid of reds…i love urban decay lipsticks!

  4. Christine shen

    I need a red lip stick, help me out Christine which one should I get? I’m nc40, this one or russian red from Mac?

  5. Erin

    That is such a beautiful color. Good shine too.

  6. Akia

    wow, that’s really pretty.. but I’m still getting used to my Ruby Woo so I need to chill out before I go buy another red lol

  7. Julia

    If applied with a brush do you think it would be a little less opaque?
    I mean, is the color buildable?

  8. Sarah M

    OMG. That is possibly the most beautiful red lipstick I have ever seen.

  9. Aeman

    Christine, you make this color look good! Its stunning on you.

  10. amy

    Pretty and fiery. It is one of my favourite red shades you have showcased so far.

  11. Sexy Sadie

    This one is a true killer.

  12. Wilcoa

    Very beautiful red, but probably too bright for me to pull off 😮

  13. Audrey S

    This is my favorite red–always makes me feel confident!

    This is outrageously beautiful! I can’t believe a glossy red lipstick applies so smooth and clean – I think it looks about as nice on your lips (at least from this picture!) as Dragon does. It’s got a real bombshell look to it. Hope you feature it in a look soon! I am thinking about picking this up…my only UD lipstick is Naked, which I love, but I’ve been lazy about getting them because there aren’t a ton of lip swatches out there, and the packaging, while gorgeous, is a bit cumbersome. Still, this one might convince me.

  15. Lorna

    that looks like such a good pin up girl lipstick. beautiful.

  16. This color is like fire!

    I am wearing red lipstick right now as I am typing this and I feel so fierce! =)

    Hey there!

    I just found your blog a couple of days ago, and I’m loving it! I’ve been through something ridiculous like the first 70 pages.. :)

    Anyways, here’s a question for you: You do lots of red lips and I LOVE them. Do you have any lipsticks/glosses you would rec. for a girl with pale skin, green eyes, and a vibrant auburn (really red in the sun, but a brown-red). I’ve been eyeing the lipstick queen sinner red..but I don’t know if it’s too bright…any ideas are appreciated:)

    (Also, your blog made me cringe for missing out on MAC’s cult of cherry, haha. I managed to get my hands on some of the CoC lipglass last night, though!)

    • Wow!! I give you props for getting through 70 pages, and I am flattered that you have spent the time to go through so many pages, too! :)

      I know it sounds funny, but redheads can pull off reds! There’s no condition to it – they can. If you cooler toned, I’d go with more of a blue-based red; if you’re warmer toned, orange-based reds really pop on redheads.

      Ohh, glad you were able to score some of the CoC lipglass last night! Congrats 😉

    My favorite red is Lady Danger by MAC which I know isn’t really a true red. But would you say Revolution is a little similar? Because I would loooove to try it if it is.

    • If I remember correctly, Lady Danger is kind of an orange-y red — I’d say that this different enough that they’re not the same. They’re both in the red vein, so they’re a *little* similar, LOL. I’d say give it a shot if you can!

  19. omg! I need this in my life. reminds me a lil of gosh’s lambada but more blue toned.

  20. J

    I seriously need this NOW *__* it looks almost as good/if not better than Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Lacque

  21. Georgie

    This is so gorgeous, but you’re going to make want all the shades you feature ;). Looks stunning on you!


  22. KatieKarousel
