Star Stunner

Urban Decay Star Stunner Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) has a clear base with holographic sparkle–and it was described as having a clear base. It had semi-sheer coverage with respect to the sparkle, which was fine enough not to add texture to the gloss. The texture was smooth, more like a gel-cream hybrid, that was comfortable to apply and to wear. The gloss didn’t settle into my lips, and it was moisturizing over the three hours it lasted for.

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.

Wildside

Urban Decay Wildside Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium, orange-copper base with flecks of gold and pink sparkle. The consistency felt smooth and spread easily across my lips without settling into my lip lines, but there was enough sparkle (and large enough particles), that I was able to feel the grit of the glitter if I lightly pressed my lips together (which may be a deal-breaker for some!). It had medium color coverage, which was in line with the shimmer/sparkle shade marketing in this formula. It wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn.

Pretty color but I wonder if these have that same peppermint scent as the others? Those peppermint/plumping lip products burn my lips. Not a fan of those type of products. I rarely wear the pretty coral Urban Decay gloss because of the intense mint.
