Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Rock Steady LipstickUrban Decay x Gwen Stefani Rock Steady Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "deep wine red cream." It's a deepened, dark burgundy red with warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but you could see my lip freckle peeking through, though the lipstick applied smoothly and evenly (not always the case with these darker, glossier shades). The texture had moderate slip, so if feathering is something you often experience, you may want to use a lip liner with this one (I didn't have feathering myself, but it doesn't happen frequently to me). The color wore well for five hours and left a stain behind, while the formula was comfortable to wear and hydrating. Urban Decay Rock Steady (DC, $18.00) is glossier (95% similar).
