Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick

Here are the last three shades of the new Urban Decay Sheer Revolution LipstickUrban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.). This formula is supposed to have “sheer, pigmented color” with a “high-shine finish” and “buttery-smooth application.” The texture is thicker than traditional lip balm, but it has the “stiffer” feel where it starts to melt upon contact of the lips. It isn’t as thick or as creamy as the original Revolution formula (and obviously, these aren’t as pigmented). The pigmentation is semi-sheer to semi-opaque noticeable translucency but still that “sheer (yet still pigmented!)” color they seemed to be after. I wish I found these hydrating, but they weren’t drying either.

Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn Sheer Revolution LipstickUrban Decay Sheer Slowburn Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer orange-red.” It’s a brightened, orange-red with warm undertones and a light sheen. It had semi-opaque to mostly opaque pigmentation–you can see my lip freckle slightly, but it is one of the more pigmented shades in the range. It has a thinner feel and doesn’t look as “heavy” on in comparison to the original Revolution formula, but it did seem too pigmented relative to the positioning of this formula. It wore well for four and a half hours. MAC 5 Alarm (LE, $16.00) is more muted. MAC Fashion Trip (LE, $22.00) is brighter. Bite Beauty Grandifolia (LE, $28.00) is more opaque. Estee Lauder Envious (P, $30.00) is more opaque, less shiny. MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is similar. Givenchy Carmin Escarpin (306) (P, $36.00) is more opaque, brighter. Maybelline Infra-red (LE, $7.49) is darker. Guerlain Gilda (P, $51.00) is more shimmery, brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Urban Decay Sheer F-Bomb Sheer Revolution LipstickUrban Decay Sheer F-Bomb Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer red.” It’s a muted, pinky-red with subtle cool undertones and a light shine. It looked almost warm-toned against my skin tone, but I think it will lean pinker on cooler complexions. It had semi-opaque color payoff that covered evenly for the most part and glided on easily. The color wore well for five hours on me. Burberry Oxblood No. 214 (P, $33.00) is warmer. MAC Red Necessity (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned. Revlon Provocateur (135) (P, $8.99) is lighter. MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE, $16.00) is less glossy. Buxom Scoundrel (P, $21.00) is brighter, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Urban Decay Sheer Shame Sheer Revolution LipstickUrban Decay Sheer Shame Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer berry.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned berry red with a light shine. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but it applied unevenly and looked splotchy at times. It wore well for four and a half hours. Givenchy Framboise Velours (315) (LE, $36.00) is more opaque, less glossy. MAC Splurge (LE, $22.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Emotion (92) (LE, $35.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Insolent Plum (P, $30.00) is darker. MAC Commotion (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned. Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is cooler-toned. Marc Jacobs Beauty Seduce Me (128) (P, $30.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Wow these don’t even seem sheer at all, actually… I thought they would be like the lip butters earlier but they’re not as pigmented as these. These actually seem more like YSL Rouge Volupte Shine… which I like VERY MUCH!

As much as I’m generally a fan of the UD Revolution lipsticks, and of this new line, releasing a shade called ‘Shame’ was kind of tempting fate to begin with – now tha they released ‘Sheer Shame’, I feel like I can hear Fate cackling with absolute glee somewhere 😉 Of all the shades to release in sheer format, the already-patchy one would not have been my pick, LOL! Should have done Sheer Venom instead!

The pigmentation is indeed very impressive on some of these (for ‘sheer’ shades)! I’m glad, because when I first saw the promo image for the line, I was all ‘please, UD, don’t do the Too Faced/Benefit thing and release nearly identical, almost colourless ‘balms’!!!;

Girl,you are on it! busting these out today!lol..I like these…particularly Slowburn and F- bomb..I wish the berry shade would have performed better! Do you think these darker shades are good to go without a liner? I am thinking summer days makeup already,lol..sigh.

Look much like Dior’s “Rouge Dior Baume”, (the replacement of the discontinued Rouge Serum Dior).
Even the slimy packaging. Pretty colors and good opacity for 1 & 2.
(I don’t mention Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine, they are truly pretty sheer.)
Happy New Year Christine !
