Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks

'Creamy, badass luxury'

When it comes to lipstick, there always seems to be a conflict between pigment and luxury. For insane colours, the independent colour brands are always the way forward. For texture, however, there's no denying that few will meet the lavish standards of YSL or Givenchy.

What Urban Decay have done with their new Revolution Lipsticks is fused the two. Think Barry M pigmentation mixed with Chanel creaminess and this is what you’re left with. The press release claims that ‘NOBODY has a formula like this’ and, it has to be said, they’re completely right.

I can’t recommend these lipsticks enough – they’re up there with my favourite launches of 2013. I’ve currently got two shades on rotation:

Catfight: a bright pink/red, this is ideal for those days when you don’t have all day to go to town on your make-up. Team this with a fresh base, a pink blusher and a lick of mascara and your lips will do all the talking.

Swatch Mixed Gems

Streak: a fail-safe coral, this is true to colour which is why I love it. It’s a classic for a fresh, summery look, and really brightens the look of the face.

The best part of these lipsticks is that you don’t get that chalky, bitty wear away that lots of bright lipsticks can give. Seeing as the formula is infused with a blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, shea butter and cocoa butter, your lips will be hydrated and striking all in one.

UD Lipsticks

If you’re yet to find your perfect hue I would strongly recommend trying these out. There’s a versatile 22 shades so, chances are, you’ll find your perfect match. Worried about applying them neatly? Don’t be. Urban Decay have also relaunched their 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencils, each with a creamy formula that will prevent bleeding. My favourite is Ozone, an invisible shade, ideal for on-the-go touch ups.

I LOVE these lipsticks and can’t see why you won’t too. And, FYI, everything at Urban Decay is just divine at the moment. Be sure to check out the Naked Skin Powder and Brow Box while you’re at the counter.
