REVIEW & SWATCHES: All Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks


There are a few new releases that literally make my jaw drop and scream when I receive the package in the mail. To be completely honest, this was one of those moments. I had been hearing for years that Urban Decay was planning on revamping their lipsticks but I had no idea that they would go from their previous dagger-clad edgy design to the classy gunmetal bullet that is out now. Wowee.


There are 22 shades total of the creamy, uber-pigmented lipstick and you bet your pout that I've got swatches of each of them! Holy eye candy!

First comes first: The Look. Having a background in product design myself, I always geek out over packaging because I want to feel as good looking at my makeup and holding it as I do wearing it. The lipstick is nice and weighty with a sleek, metallic cap and a smooth, angled bullet. There is also a metallic sticker on the bottom with the color name. The chrome exterior does grab some fingerprints, but the wavy surface and warm gunmental color serve to obscure them unless you are specifically looking for it.


The lipstick itself is non-scented which is wonderful news considering the last lipstick line from UD's #1 complaint was the crème brûlée (or as I like to call it "Captain Crunch") scent. My sensitive nose approves. Overall, I feel like UD lipsticks graduated university and became modern, sassy women!


Now lets get to sexy swatch time:


Shame / Venom / Jilted / Anarchy / Turn On / F-Bomb

Shame - deep berry
Venom - bright plum
Jilted - deep fuchsia shimmer with blue shift
Anarchy - bright fuchsia
Turn On - rosy pink
F-Bomb - classic red



69 / Catfight / Bang / Streak / Manic / Rapture

69 - bright red with pink undertone
Catfight - pink-fuchsia with slight red undertone
Bang - bright orange-red
Streak - coral pink
Manic - soft wine
Rapture - dusty rose



Rush / Fiend / Native / Obsessed / Liar / Naked

Rush
 - pink-mauve

Fiend - muted rose
Native - pale pink
Obsessed - bright baby pink
Liar - pinky-brown nude
Naked - nude-pink

Naked2 / Lovelight / Protest* / Strip*

Naked2
 - medium beige-nude

Lovelight - pale peachy-pink shimmer
Protest* - sheer peachy nude
Strip* - sheer medium mauve-nude
*exclusive to urbandecay.com


You might notice that in the swatches there are 2 different types of finishes to these lipsticks, creamy and glossy, which is especially noticeable in my second set of swatches (69 / Catfight / Bang / Streak / Manic / Rapture) where you can see the last 3 are much more glossy than the first 3. The glossy 'sticks are sheerer compared to the highly pigmented creamy shades, and tend to be the more natural colors as well.

There are plenty of shades for both those girls who love to rock a bright lip and those who love their MLBBs too. Helpful to note, these lippies also have matching lip pencils in corresponding color names so there's no guesswork in which one to use. I can't wait to test these more over the next few months to see if the rich, buttery hydration lives up to their claim!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick is now available for $22 at Sephora, Ulta, select Macy's stores, and online at beauty.com and urbandecay.com.

Readers, will you be picking up the new Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks? Are you a bright lipstick or natural lipstick wearer? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I would ask for lip swatches too, butttt that may be too much for 22 lipsticks! >.<

    But thank you for the swatches, at least I have a better guess to how the color looks instead of swatching them all myself at Sephora and I think I want to pick up at least 2 now--a bright one and a nude one =P

  2. I have two (Lovelight and Turn On) and really like them. The matching lip liner for Turn On is amazing (I've been wearing that with lip gloss for most of the month).

    I really like the new packaging - while the old packaging was fun, it was far too bulky for my taste. I think UD did a great job on these lipsticks and plan on buying the majority of them.

  6. I picked up "Naked2," so happy to finally find a nice beige nude without needing a lip liner for help, and loved the formula so much that I picked up "Anarchy" shortly after (which is rare of me to do with high-end products). These lipsticks are amazing.

  30. Picked one up recently in the shade Naked. I think I just found the perfect pinky nude shade and it looks great on my light-medium Asian skin tone. But I might pick up some brighter shades soon, like Obsessed and Streak! :)
