I know I am kinda late in doing a review on this product but I have (and will be until early 2014) just been super busy writing/editing my dissertation.. I have had the lipstick for more than 2 months but haven’t had the time to review it!! Anyway, lets get to the product review..
This year Urban decay released a new formula of lipsticks called the ‘Revolution Lipstick’.. On one hand it was supposed to be creamy, hydrating and moisturizing on the lips while on the other hand it was supposed to be long lasting! That’s a combination unheard of.. Hence, a lot of buzz has surrounded this product since its launch in late summer this year.. and of course I was excited too! I checked swatches of the various colors (YES, 22 shades in all!!) and ordered ‘F-bomb’ off of sephora.com…
More information off of Sephora’s website – “Urban Decay’s Pigment Dispersion System™ gives Revolution Lipstick its super creamy texture, intense pigmentation, superior color dispersion, and extended wear. Maxi-Lip™ defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller. And a nourishing blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter keeps lips super moisturized and cushiony soft.”
What blew me first off was the packaging.. The lipstick bullet is almost a pink-purple gold metal case with UD logo embossed on it.. Feels and looks quite luxurious.. The color of the lipstick is displayed at the bottom of the bullet..
Now, for the color and formula.. ‘F-bomb’ is described as a “Classic Red” and of course I had to have it.. If you didn’t know, I have a weakness for red lip and nail products.. 😉
I swatched the product first on my hand and then applied it onto my lips with a lip brush.. and boy, was it soft like a butter or not… It did not drag against my skin.. A single swipe is all I needed to get a full on color.. Wow.. never before have I felt a rich, pigmented lipstick feel so comforting on my dry lips.. The formula truly stands up to its claim.. It was long wearing with minimal touch ups throughout the day (stayed put for many hours).. I have not tried any of the lighter shades from the range and I am not sure if they have the same lasting power.. This lipstick formula is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates.. 🙂
Here are some images of the lipstick applied lightly with a lip brush.. The color is way more buildable that what appears in these pics if you enjoy a full on red lip look..
The color range is also great with this formula.. you can choose from nude, fleshy tones to bright colors to dark, vampy colors.. There is something for everybody.. The only downside is the price – $22 for a single lipstick!! This is ofcourse cheaper than most high-end brands such as Tom ford, Illamasqua, Chanel, etc.. But, overall I feel the formula is worth trying – just get a shade you might reach for the most.. The hydration will amaze you for such a pigmented, long wearing lip product.. 🙂
