Here are the swatches of the all muted shades in the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks, and my review.
Packaging of Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks
Formula of Urban Decay Revolution LipsticksUD says there are four characteristics for this lipstick: Creaminess, hydration, nourishment and long-lasting"ness".
The ingredient-list is paraben-free.
Staying power of Urban Decay Revolution lipsticksI must admit to being disappointed, given all the hype. I know I will get a lot of hate but having tried the Lancome Rouge in Loves, Chanel Rouge Allures and Givenchy Le Rouges and Rouge Interdits, it is my humble opinion (no hate mail, please) that these fall short in terms of staying power. And some of these have slightly ashy undertones. At least, on my skintone. The gross caked saliva thing on the inner edges of the lips happens here. I haven't had that happen in a long time with a lot of lipsticks. These lipsticks don't last through eating, at least, on me, and transfer to spoons, glasses and straws. Nor do they leave a stain behind.
Swatches of Urban Decay Revolution lipsticksFrom left to right:
69, Lovelight, Venom, Obsessed, Turn On, Fiend, Rush, Rapture, Liar and N@ked.
Lovelight: A pale, shimmery peach
Venom: A purpley plum
Obsessed: Pale baby/bubblegum pink. Completely lost on any skintone deeper than NC35. Or even 30.
Turn On: A bright rosy pink. Think Nova in Rimmel Apocalips.
Fiend: A pretty rose. Think one shade paler than Celestial in Rimmel Apocalips.
Rush: A mauvey pink. Comes with a slightly ashen undertone.
Rapture: UD says this is a dusty rose. It is darker than my usual dusty roses; I call it a deep rose, or berryish rose.
Liar: A rosy-brown n+de.
N@ked: A pale pinky-neutral.
And, in artificial light.
