Urban Decay 69 Lipstick
Urban Decay 69 Lipstick

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is back with a new and improved formula (as well as packaging). Urban Decay’s bringing back lipstick, and they’re doing in in a major, major way with twenty-two shades from bold, bright, and wickedly vibrant to soft, subdued, and natural. The formula is creamy, lightweight, and glides on with nearly full color coverage in a single pass. They wear anywhere from four to seven hours, with some leaving behind a stain for another one to two hours. The lighter shades tended to wear around four hours, while deeper and bolder shades lasted an average of six hours. The creamy consistency is comfortable to wear but doesn’t bleed or feather, while the formula itself is moisturizing. I didn’t detect any scent or flavor! This post focuses on the red and orange shades within the range.

69 Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright red with pink undertone.” It’s a bold, brightened medium-dark red with subtle cool undertones and a creamy finish. It was richly pigmented and lasted for six and a half hours, and it did leave a stain behind. Edward Bess Eternal Passion is very slightly lighter. Chanel Dialogue is more muted. Giorgio Armani Red Fuchsia is similar. NYX Chic Red is more matte. MAC Everyday Diva is warmer. MAC Ronnie Red is darker, more matte. Guerlain Gwen is slightly darker. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

F-Bomb Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a neutral-warm, medium red with a glossy shine. It looks warm on me, but it looks somewhat cool or neutral in the tube, so this may turn warmer/cooler depending on your undertones. It had rich, full color coverage and wore for six hours well. NARS Mysterious Red is matte. Maybelline Infra-red is warmer. MAC Red Racer is similar. MAC Must Be Red is more muted. MAC Cockney is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Catfight Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pink-fuchsia with slight red undertone.” It’s a pinky-red–almost a warm fuchsia–but it is still slightly cool-toned that is finished with a creamy shine. It had intense, full color coverage, and it wore well for six and a half hours. It also left behind a stain for another hour or so. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible #205 is cooler-toned, more fuchsia. Revlon Sorbet is sheerer, lighter. Tom Ford Aphrodisiac is cooler-toned. Guerlain Girly is cooler-toned. NARS Jardin des Plantes is shimmery. MAC Moxie is more matte. MAC Impassioned is lighter. Guerlain Gigi is a touch lighter. Guerlain Gourmandise is similar. See comparison swatches.

Bang Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright orange-red.” It is rich in color and intensely pigmented with fully opaque color and a soft, luminous sheen. It wore well, lasting six and a half hours, and left behind a soft stain. Maybelline Orange Edge is slightly redder. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is also slightly redder. Maybelline Electric Orange is lighter. MAC Fashion Nomad is lighter. MAC Scarlet Ibis is more matte, a touch redder. MAC Sail La Vie is similar. MAC Morange and MAC Neon Orange are lighter. MAC Lady Danger is more matte. Buxom Rogue is similar. OCC Psycho is a touch browner and more matte. See comparison swatches.

Streak Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “coral pink.” It’s a warm-toned, coral-pink with a glossy shine. It had rich, full color coverage, and the consistency seemed slightly slicker than other shades.  It has a tendency to create “lines” if you press your lips together, so it could look somewhat streaky (ha, ha) if you aren’t careful. This shade wore well for four hours. Chanel Saga is warmer, lighter. Chanel Liaison is similar, less shine. NYX Stella is pinker. MAC Elegant Accent is darker, brighter. MAC Flamingo is slightly lighter. MAC Betty Bright is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches.

Whoa. I refreshed my browser and WHAM three new posts, haha! Thank you for all of your incredible work. 😀

These all look gorgeous! I love how glossy and smooth they look on. Maybe not entirely thrilled with some of the names, though… (I am looking at you, 69!)

This is what they do though! Give things awful names! With eyeliner called Bourbon, Perversion; lipstick that was called Lovechild, Peroxide, Buzzkill. It gives them a bit of an edge and it fits their name: Urban Decay. Anything else just wouldn’t work.

I don’t mind the edgy aesthetic, but since it’s a traditionally feminine product, I expect it to cater to female aesthetics. It’s the same reasoning behind why many people are fine with NARS Orgasm but find Deep Throat distasteful. Having products named for sex acts is no big deal, but I find it strange that we would have so many named for acts that traditionally serve to please men rather than any for women.

That’s an interesting interpretation! Keep on with your critical thinking self. Although re: 69. I think it’s because Urban Decay caters to a younger market, or a young-at-heart market 69 appeals to my immature “haha 69 haha” side.

Young market? I´m 23 and I´m absolutely disgusted by this names, even if I liked a product I would never buy it if I could get any dupe or something close to it, and even if they were no dupes I would probably still not buy it. According to this I must be very mature, then again I´m not from the USA, and I know for a fact that this brand with these vulgar and ridiculous names would never sell here, and you really don´t need to be vulgar there other great names for a makeup product. Too many great brands to pay attention to this one…

In fairness, some women love (and get off on) sex acts that “traditionally” please men. Also, 69 does not only please the man. My only issue is that if an elderly woman complimented me on something and asked me what it is I feel slightly awkward saying “oh thanks, it’s called Deep Throat!”

Don’t get me wrong – my comment wasn’t intended to imply women don’t or can’t enjoy sex they mutually engage in. But 69 is generally a sex act associated with men, so I find it curious that there’s an absence of names that refer to the opposite. It’s sort of boils down to – why are BJ jokes just fine, but references to female oral sex considered off-taste?

i don’t see how 69ing is traditionally appealing to men! i know we are getting off topic here but there are a lot of things that are more misogynistic
than an act which pleases both parties. (deep throat for example i definitely agree with you there, come on… deep throat?? that’s really pushing it over the edge.)

If someone like my mother in law asked what lipstick I was wearing I would probably have to lie… Still, I don’t know what names UD could use that aren’t too obscure (and then risk the meaning changing) or too tame. I kind of wish they had a couple of ‘weird’ colours in their line up, because that is how they made their name, but I guess they’ve ceded that territory to Illamasqua, OCC and others.

Actually, all brands like using racy names because: sex sells(especially with people’s sex cells on overdrive lol bad pun). People love buying it and reviewing it highly because, to most, it’s so much fun talking about it. People looove saying double entendres like, “OMG, I just tried orgasm[as in: Nars Orgasm] and I love it!”. Rowena, from Beauty and the Bullshit, says she likes buying them for their name, their story.

Omg all of these are beautiful. I don’t normally go for creamy lipsticks but UD definitely changed my mind. These colors are so rich.

Oooooh…even though Streak wasn’t rated as highly, I really love the shade. It looks like a more wearable, less chalky version of YSL’s Peach Passion.

The other shades are lovely, too, but I already have similar ones in my collection.

I can’t wait to see a watch of the plum-berry color that’s 2nd from the end on the first row!

Saw all the A+’s and scrolled down to see the swatches… Caught myself saying “Oh no…” THESE ARE TOO BEAUTIFUL. My poor bank account.

Wasn’t Urban Decay supposed to be the brand with all the colors you can’t find anywhere else? And now CoverGirl has a more extensive shade range than this. Also, the lipstick names sound like they’re trying waaaaay too hard to be edgy. I mean, I get it, sex sells. But “69”? Are we ten-year-old boys?

I have no doubts that the formula is excellent and long-wearing and pigmented or… whatever. But I can get that elsewhere.

Everything was SO blinding, it hurt my eyes except for Streak which I like but it might not look so hot on my so pale, cool-toned skin. I’ll have to swatch F-Bomb but it is quite pretty. It’s also my favorite nail polish color. 😛 That perfect vintage red polish… It’s good to see Urban Decay returning to what they used to do: give things terrible names!XD It seemed, for a while, that they were “getting older” and stepping away from their roots.

I’m not a lip-licker, but the taste of their lipstick before was so horrible! i can’t really see myself purchasing from UD ever again, but it’s good to know that if i do, i won’t have to worry about tasting chemicals!

How would the feel of these on the lips compare to Too Faced La Creme lipsticks? I have been thinking of picking them up at the reviews of them being moisturizing because I have very dry lips.

Wow streak looks so amazing, I’ll have to pick that up!
Thanks for your lovely reviews Christine! I always look forward to checking them out <3

And thank you URBAN DECAY for getting rid of scent/flavor!

This brand is not available in my conservative country, but it´s better that it isn´t because I can predict that it would fail miserably solely because of the names it uses for it´s products, no one would buy them literally. Even the balm that doesn´t use this many obscene references failed and closed all counters in the city I live in (major large city) and Too faced doesn´t really do all that well either, the only two non French brands that do well are Bobbi Brown and Mac (Mac is a top seller), otherwise it´s all about the classic French brands here. But seriously with those names they could never expand to my nation.

Ooo I’m really attracted to these. I am definitely considering Streak. I’m timid about lip color, but these make me want to experiment! Especially F-Bomb.

How would you compare F-Bomb in lipstick form to the pencil form, Christine? If they’re similar, I’d be a very happy puppy.

Thank you! I might still love it if that’s the only difference. (I hate having to sharpen a lippie! What if I just want to throw it in my bag?)

Urban Decay has hit a home run with these lipsticks. The shades look incredible. F-Bomb, Catwalk, and 69 are on my list to purchase.

Hot damn..these are wonderful! Catfight..I’m game! Streak, you look like a wonderful day colour.. Kudos to Urban Decay. I’m feeling quite overwhelmed from all the offerings and it’s going to be difficult to narrow down my choices. Thanks for all the terrific reviews, Christine! What a marathon!!!!

I think they’re similar but the finish is less glossy in lipstick form. It will also feel slightly different because they have different consistencies!

Listed at the beginning of the post, copied and pasted: “Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.).” Hope that helps! 🙂

All of these look pretty wearable for darker skin tones. I am especially interested in Catfight. What do you think? I am NW40 in MAC.

Holy cats, F-Bomb doesn’t look that striking in the tube, but it’s absolutely GORGEOUS on!!! A lemming is born. Actually, looking at the rest of the collection, I think many lemmings have been born.

These are all so beautiful!!! I can’t decide which to splurge on, 69 or F-Bomb! I’m very fair with neutral skin and warm toned eyes and hair and I just want that perfect red. Any advice?

Hello!

How do Catfight and Jilted compare to MAC’s Girl About Town? I really love Catfight and Jilted but afraid they’ll be too similar. 🙂

Also, do you think 69 would be too much on someone with fair skin? I’ve been wanting to try a bold red lipstick, but I don’t know if I could pull it off! Thanks!!

Catfight is too warm, Jilted too fuchsia/cool-toned – Jilted would be closer to GTA than Catfight. I don’t think 69 would be too much!
