Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick: Worth Having And Worth Fighting For

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Range

The hardcore lipstick lovers among you may already know that Urban Decay are going back to their roots, with a new lipstick range being added to their permanent collection. 

Way back in the make up mists of time, when the Naked and Naked 2 palettes (see mine in action!) were but a gleam in founder Sandy Lerner's eye, the edgy Californian company started out as a lipstick and nail polish brand. 

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick and 24-7 Lip Liners

The Revolution lipstick line is, to paraphrase one Ms Cheryl Cole - surely a woman who knows good lipstick –  both worth having and worth fighting for. It is seriously amaze, in its slick gunmetal casing with expensive feeling, fancypants detailing, and a formula that rivals any other on the market today.

L-R Bang, Shame, Anarchy - ONE SWIPE!

With excellent coverage, payoff and cushiony creaminess, these slick on smoothly for a satiny sheen that hangs about for a good 3-4 hours. In a world where luxury lipstick prices edge ever closer to insane (yes Tom Ford, I'm looking at you), the €20 pricetag also seems like exceptionally good value.

Now the only question is, which of the 22 shades should you take home first? 

The hot pink Anarchy has been getting lots of attention, and with good reason, too – check it out over on Frillseeker – but for my money, the orangey-red Bang, vampy Shame or classic red hues of 69 are also worth pride of place in your beauty bag.

The  nudes are bang on the money too, with no less than eight to choose from - meaning there’s a good chance you’ll find The One in this collection.

But that's not all! Revolution has a sidekick, too: the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils are the product my lips were waiting for, without even realising they’d been missing out.

Waterproof but creamy, and in a range of kickass colours that perfectly complements the lipstick line, these are every bit as lovely to use as their better known sibling, the 24/7 Eye Pencil.  



These give a clean line, prevent feathering and give your lip colour something to hold onto, meaning it will last longer. 16 shades are on offer, including Ozone, a clear waxy pencil that should go with everything in your stash. Oh, and they’re vegan, too, which I know is important to lots of you – they’re €16.

It's all on counter now so go on, tell me, which of them's catching your eye?

I walk past the Urban Decay stand most days, in the Debenhams where I work and I quietly lust over these beauties! I may have to go and give them a whirl next time, especially Shame, it look amazing! Thanks for all the helpful information, your blog is always so helpful :)

I love the new lipstick line! The formula's so smooth and pigmented. My favourite's definetely Venom, but I've also got Catfight and will be getting 69 and probably F-bomb, as I do love me a red lippy - or ten :p

The nudes look amazing, and will definitely hunt for a nice shade for A/W. Xx

I have had my eye on these since their launch! Can't wait to try them out - probably will go for a nude shade as I'm not always the bravest with lip colours......

They look amazing. Call me boring but I am loving the look of a few of the nudes you swatched. The first and second (from left)and last one all look really nice.

That bright orange really suits you! One of the nudes is right up my street! x

Oh, noes! I'm just realizing that not only am I addicted to the Urban Decay eyeshadows - I much prefer their lippies to the likes of Dior and YSL and I'm two clicks from buying the appropriately named Shame. I think I've got a problem. Somebody stop me!
