See, I’m SO easily won over by a good lipgloss! The Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss collection is no exception; there are several colours that I’d wear in a heart-beat and are heading straight into my handbag. It’s not completely clear to me – although UD fans will know straight away – which colours are existing in other formulas and which are new, but I’ll run through all the colours any way.
As you can see, the collection is split into brights and more neutral tones – some have sparkle and some don’t. Personally, I prefer the non-sparklers, but I think this is a good line up with something for everyone. Although they’re bright, they’re not ultra-pigmented, so you don’t get a full saturation on the lip, and again, personally, that’s a preference – I just think glosses are more flattering when they’re not trying to be lipsticks.
Starting bottom to top: Quiver, Failbait (this is kind of interesting because I think this shade used to be called Jailbait), Apocalypse, Brickhouse, Kinky and Liar.
Again, from bottom to top: Vice (sparkly), Big Bang (sparkly), Savage, Assassin (sparkly), 69 and Punch Drunk. I’m kind of waiting for 69 to be renamed 29 or similar ;-).
In terms of texture, the Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss collection has really good hold without being too sticky; there’s a little bit of ‘stick’ but actually, these are very comfortable in wearing and for glosses, last a good while. Taste wise, vaguely sweet but nothing much to complain about – certainly not a horrible Victoria’s Secret vanilla hit. Whew!
The Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss collection launches next month in the UK for £15 – they’ve already launched in the US.
