Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Firebird Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia cream.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with strong, blue undertones and lighter fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff–there is a noticeable translucency that will let the natural lip color come through, which may alter the way it looks depending on what your natural lip color is–that covered evenly and smoothly. The color wore well for five and a half hours on me and was hydrating while worn. Guerlain #888 (P, $33.00) is less shimmery, more muted (95% similar). ColourPop The Rabbit (P, $7.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Kingston (DC, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). Revlon Wild Orchid (P, $8.49) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Hot Berry (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Illamasqua Atomic (P, $24.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Revlon Fuchsia Fusion (P, $8.49) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Francesco (LE, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 714 Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright red mega matte.” It’s a a bright, medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and a flat, matte finish. The texture is incredibly dense and stiff in the tube, which makes it painful to apply as the color drags and skips on the lips. I would highly recommend taking the time to use a lip brush with this one to avoid agitating the lips during application, and it also combats the issue with the drier, thicker formula looking jagged along the edge. It had mostly opaque coverage and wore like iron (was still going strong after six hours), but I found it moderately drying over time. Urban Decay 714 (DC, $18.00) is lighter, more pigmented (95% similar). MAC Leading Lady Red (LE, $18.00) is brighter, cooler, glossier (95% similar). Maybelline Siren in Scarlet (P, $7.99) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Von Teese (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). ColourPop Fighter (LE, $7.00) is cooler (95% similar). Milani Desire (LE, $8.99) is less glossy (95% similar). ColourPop Lullaby (LE, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay 714 (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). Melt Cosmetics Miss Argentina (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Best Revenge (P, $55.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Don't Stop (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). ColourPop Jingle (LE, $7.00) is darker (90% similar). ColourPop Weekender (LE, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Frequency (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Dynasty Red (LE, $19.00) is more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Rosehip (DC, $24.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty How Rouge (340) (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). ColourPop Succulent (LE, $6.50) is lighter, brighter, less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nikita (Left) (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). ColourPop Kismet (P, $7.00) is lighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.

I wore it today- and I adore it! It is the most gorgeous color ever- I describe it as a purple cranberry with blue/pink shimmer 🙂
I love the formula; it’s not drying and lasted me through a messy salad and gelato lunch. For 18$ I would definitely invest in it- especially with the upcoming sephora sale. It’s a truly unique shade.

Firebird reminds me of Revlon Ultra HD Lacquer in Pink Ruby. 714 sounds like torture to apply, but the color is pretty, and it’s one of the few mattes that is actually matte!

I think Firebird is a definite must-have, it’s such a gorgeous colour! I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out quickly! Both colours look amazing on you, shame that 714 was not nice to apply.

Firebird is so incredibly 1980’s, but in a very good, fun way! Me and my bestie both used to wear shades like this one back then, so it’s kinda cool to see it trying to come back.

BUT; it’s 714 that’s got my undivided attention! Crazy since I already have Nars Cruella, MAC Damn Glamorous, Russian Red, etc. And Ruby Woo on my “Loves List” with MAC for a few years running! RW sounds to be a better formula from looking at their comparison grades, no?

I really like both of these colors and I don’t think either are dupes of anything I currently have. I may have to pull the trigger on both! But I’m glad the price is lower than the regular UD lipsticks, I feel like I’m getting a deal especially with the LE packaging!

Samantha Avatar

I’m surprised Fireball worked out so well for you. I wore a sample of it that came in a recent UD purchase and it seriously dried out my lips, faded majorly, and flaked. I couldn’t decide whether I was disappointed it performed so poorly or grateful I could honor my New Year no buy.

Was it an allergy to one of the ingredients, or just major drying? Sorry. It’s clearly the front runner. People had better jump on it; sounds like it will be the first sell out! It IS gorgeous.

Fran Avatar

Oh, I love Firebird, that is my kind of color! And I don’t even have any close dupes — this should be fun 🙂 I’m going to check out the matching pencil, too. It’s too bad about 714, but it’s not a color that would work very well for me, anyway.

Helene Avatar

Firebird! A winner for me, and a must have.
714 is very pretty, but I try to avoid drying lipsticks, I use them, but think I have enough. After reading the comments I understand that I have an old Ruby Woo, and it is quite drying, it’s a use for party or night out, then lipbalm 10 times, at least, a day for a week, to recover 🙂

Melissa Avatar

Ohhh my goodness…Just bought firebird by g.s. and i’ve had 3 compliments today already! Such a gorgeous colour and nobody is wearing it…but I’m having trouble finding a blush colour for it… just bronze is good? I have no idea…

Melissa Avatar

Ahh thanks Christine. I think I have 2/3 of those colours in my collection. I’ll try them out. Any chance you could recommend me a good rosy brown? (because I have no idea! haha)

I’v received a sample lipstick palette, and 714 was my favorite out of 4. I was going to buy the product NOT because I was running out of it (We all know it’s not really easy to hit the bottom of sample eyeshadows/lipsticks), but because I was sick and tired of applying it with my brush. BUT if I have to apply it with the brush anyway, then I’d just stick with my sample palette for now. Thanks for the tip 😛
