Urban Decay 69 Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. The consistency was light-medium in weight with a smooth, almost gel-like feel that spread easily across the lips. It developed tackiness as it wore on, and it was moderately tacky by the end of wear. The color had semi-opaque coverage that went on evenly overall, and it lasted for five and a half hours with some hydration. Urban Decay Brickhouse (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Victoriana (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Carmine Rouge (LE, $30.00) is lighter. MAC Ruby Woo (LE, $15.00) is darker. NARS Burning Love (LE, $26.00) is more muted. Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is similar. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is slightly darker. MAC Russian Red (P, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Assassin Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright pink with glitter.” It’s a brightened, pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and pink and gold shimmer. It had somewhat opaque coverage, where there was noticeable color, but a lot of the lip color still came through. It wasn’t as pigmented as expected, and the opacity didn’t seem to be offset by an increase in shimmer (which can sometimes create the illusion of coverage). It sank into lip lines just slightly after a few hours of wear, but the texture is forgiving enough where you can smooth out the color by pressing your lips together. On me, it wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn. Bite Beauty Seven (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter, no shimmer. Urban Decay 69 (P, $22.00) is darker, brighter, cooler-toned. MAC Carmine Rouge (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery. MAC Kinky (LE, $15.00) is warmer, more shimmery. NARS Burning Love (LE, $26.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is darker, less shimmery. Sephora Collection Red Glow (P, $13.00) is less glossy. Revlon Fatal Apple (P, $7.99) is less shimmery. NYX Sunrise (P, $4.99) is pinker, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Brickhouse Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark brick-red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly and wore well for six hours. The formula was comfortable to wear, though sticky, and hydrating over time. Urban Decay 69 (P, $22.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. MAC Opera (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Ruby Woo (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is more muted, lighter. MAC Viva Glam I (LE, $15.00) is browner. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Russian Red (P, $15.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Yes, it would. Sometimes, it’s nice not to have an in-your-face bright red, too. (Though 99% of the time I’m all about in-your-face bright anything. )

I think I am going to have the problem of liking too many of these glosses! I am glad so many did well and they are permanent! Thank you for reviewing all of them for us! you are just awesome! πŸ˜€

Is it just me, or do all three of these look pretty similar? Not straight dupes, but similar enough that if you have one you don’t necessarily need the other two. I never wear red (or anything that’s not a MLBB), but even I’M disappointed at the lack of major variation in these reds.

Even though it didn’t get the higher grade, I am really diggin’ Assassin! I think it would look crazy cool layered over my MAC Damn Glamorous. Especially now while our weather here is getting so dry and getting hot.
