Urban Decay 5150 Lipstick

The Summer Season: Urban Decay 5150 Lipstick

Urban Decay 5150 Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a reddish-coral with an orange edge and lots of shimmer. It’s nearly opaque and finishes with a glossy sheen. Even though it’s described as a coral, it reads quite redder than coral on my lips, but it’s a nice, juicy shade of orange-red that works for the summer season (and doesn’t strike me as a holiday red so much). Urban Decay’s lipsticks are always creamy and moisturizing, though they only wear about three hours on me and have a burnt sugar scent that I know is a turn-off for some (I don’t notice it once I apply it).

Is this the right coral lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

  1. Woah, that’s actually a really nice color for the summer. I also love the name! 5150… Like a psych hold? Love it!

  2. It’s pretty, but not for me, I don’t do red lipsticks. :)

  3. Tiffany

    looks really pretty

    I think it’s a pretty color, but the name reminds me of mental illness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5150_%28Involuntary_psychiatric_hold%29 ) so it’s a definite no go for me. So far, none of the new Urban Decay lipsticks have made it into my stash, though I’ve found some shades I like.

      it makes no difference to me if i don’t like the name. and i also don’t see why the fact that it reminds someone of mental illness is a big deal to begin with.

    • I’m sure that’s why they picked the name. That’s what Urban Decay does. They pick names that are either overtly or sometimes sneakily “naughty” or raw. Like how they have makeup named “Blunt” “Half-Baked” and “Stash” knowing older folks won’t get it, but younger people will all know they mean weed.

      • I agree. It goes with the whole theme of “urban decay”… The rock-star-ish city grunge-y life. Not my style of living at all, but I do think it’s different and clever.

        i thought i was the onlyyy one that noticed that. ahaha
        they just came out with a green one called kush. (:

      I was wondering what 5150 meant. Urban Decay’s names sort of annoy me, like they think they are so edgy or something. All the weed-related names…aren’t you just clever! *rolls eyes* But I do like their products. This one strikes me as a little bit distasteful, though.

    Gorgeous!

  6. Cherokee

    This is a very pretty color. Looks great on you.

  7. Ryan

    Does this look anything like the viva glam cyndi lipstick?

    Yay! I was going to request that you do 5150–it’s my favorite coral, just above VG Cyndi. It’s pinker on me, though.

    Maybe you’d consider including MAC Lickable in this section as well? It’s very hot pink, and I love the light finish for summer.

  9. Carrie

    Very pretty. It reminds me of the Cyndi Lauper Viva Glam lipstick.

    Thanks Christine. I was looking for a lip swatch of this lipstick and now it’s a must have. I will add this to my bag for the Sephora sale!

  11. Looks like a good color for Summer! :D

  12. But the name IS a turn off >.<

  13. Ashley

    Lovely shade, but I HATE the shimmer and glitter. Kind of ruins it.

  14. Molly

    this reminds me of a little bit more intense Cyndi…

  15. Oooh this one is so summery! Makes me think of fruit punch! It would be nicer to have more pigmentation on the lips, but in the tube it’s so juicy looking!

  16. this is really nice! it actually reminds me of MAC Cultureboom l/s

  17. Ruth

    This is one of my favorite lipsticks, it’s gorgeous, Urban Decay make gorgeous lippies !

    Wow that red color is really pretty on you!!

    I can’t stand the chemical taste prevalent in the darker UD lipsticks, anyone know a good dupe for this color? Didn’t see it in the Dupe List!
