The Best of Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Glosses

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss  

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss  

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss  

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “ultra-shiny” with a “cushiony-soft” texture that has “long-lasting wear that’s comfortable, not tacky.” They are scented with “vanilla-mint,” which I did detect, and I could taste slightly (more like a vague sweetness). There was a slight minty tingle upon initial application, but it was very subtle and more of a cooling sensation than anything painful.

The strength of the formula is the texture of the gloss–more gel-like with a plushness that often smoothed out my lip lines rather than settled into them as some glosses are prone to do. Most shades applied well, were comfortable to wear, and lasted between three and five hours on me with light hydration.

The coverage is varies based on finish, with “Sheer Cream” having the sheerest coverage and “Cream” having “pigment-rich” coverage (opaque). The two other finishes–Holographic and Metallized–are supposed to have more medium, buildable coverage, per the brand. I think that the brand could have done a better job describing the coverage levels both by finish as well as by shade, though.

Sin

Urban Decay Sin Afteglow Cheek Palette ($39.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, limited edition six-pan cheek palette that includes three blushes and three highlighters. Within the palette, there are three shades that are new (Kiss Off, PSA, and Spotlight) are new and the other three are from the brand’s permanent range. I find that Urban Decay’s cheek products tend to be quite pigmented, though they are supposed to be sheerer and more buildable, so as long as one is comfortable with more pigmented cheek products and has need for the shades in this palette, I could see it working out well.

Urban Decay Savage Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. The coverage was semi-opaque in one layer, and while the color went on fairly evenly, it did show slight streaking along the edges that I couldn’t get to smooth out. The gloss was lightweight and did not emphasize my lip lines but wasn’t quite as smoothing as others in the range. It wasn’t tacky and felt a bit hydrating over time. This shade stayed on well for four and a half hours and seemed to stain just a bit.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.23 oz. - $86.96 Per Ounce

Outspoken

Urban Decay Outspoken Vice Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, medium plum with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without skipping. The lipstick had faint micro-sparkle, which I could feel when I initially applied it, though I would not say it was rough or gritty. Otherwise, it had enough slip to be comfortable to wear but still adhere well to my lips. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

100% of the purchase price of this lipstick is donated to “women’s empowerment nonprofits selected by The Ultraviolet Edge, Urban Decay’s global initiative to empower women.” You can learn more about Urban Decay’s initiative here, including more on the organizations that receive funding.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.11 oz. - $163.64 Per Ounce

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing.

Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing.

Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red).

Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration.

Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration.

Urban Decay Beso Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was good, though definitely not opaque in one layer. The consistency was lightweight, smoothing, and comfortable to wear as it felt plusher and more gel-like without being sticky. This shade stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating while worn.

Urban Decay Jawbreaker Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark purple with strong, warm pink undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was hard to build up, and the color did not apply evenly. It seemed to look more translucent along the edges of my lips and richer on the center of them, and it did not matter if I tried to blend or smooth out the color with the applicator, my lips, or fingertips. The gloss had a smooth, plush consistency that was comfortable to wear and did not emphasize my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.
