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.

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 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.

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.

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!

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!
