Savage

Urban Decay Savage Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip GlossUrban 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

The formula 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 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.

Rapture

Urban Decay Rapture Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip GlossUrban Decay Rapture Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that applied somewhat unevenly, especially along the edges. It had a very shiny, glossy finish, though. The texture was lightweight, gel-like with some plushness, and comfortable to wear. It wore well for three and a half hours but was somewhat hydrating over time.

Backtalk

Urban Decay Backtalk Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip GlossUrban Decay Backtalk Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, plush, and gel-like with very little tackiness. The color went on evenly and lasted for four and a half hours on me. It felt lightly hydrating while worn.

I thought about buying Rapture yesterday, but went for Backtalk instead. Seeing this review, I’m so glad I made the right choice! (I also bought Beso.)

I have Backtalk and I like it; however, it seems to clump up on me (very badly) after a few hours of wear. Maybe the formula doesn’t “mesh” well with me or I got a bad one.

The only one doing it for me is Backtalk. But even then, I will most likely go in for Nars Paradise Garage instead.

UD really could’ve done a way better job with Rapture and Savage, IMHO.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
