Review-Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

Wednesday, 25 November 2015

Hello Everyone,

John Lewis recently had a sale on a lot of cosmetics on their website (and I'm pretty sure they will have several more deals soon as Black Friday is in a couple of days!) so me being me, I decided to take full advantage of this offer and get myself a lovely Urban Decay Lipstick. I have never had a lipstick by Urban Decay before, so it took me a while to decide which kind of shade to go with-but I eventually went with a nude colour called Liar that reminds me a lot of Velvet a Teddy but with a shinier consistency and more pink undertones. 

The actual packaging/bullet of this lipstick is gorgeous- I love it's mirrored casing so much, as it is very different from any other lip product I have had before and it also makes it seem pretty sturdy so I don't have to worry about it when I put in my bag etc. However, the only downside of it being mirrored in such a way is that you can see every dirty finger print that gets on it (I had to retake several of my photos for the post because of this very reason).

The lipstick itself is also an amazing shape, (see it in the pictures above), as I really makes application a piece of cake. The product just glides on and traces the line of my lips super easily, as well as also creating the look of fuller, shinier lips (but not in an OTT way!)

I don't know where to start with the colour of this lipstick. Put quite simply it is stunning! As I said earlier it is quite similar to the shade of a Velvet Teddy by Mac, and anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely adore Velvet a Teddy and have made it my go to lippie over the past few months. A lot of lipstick colours have the habit of washing me out-this sort of nude shade doesn't though which is another reason why I love it, as it looks good when paired with all manner of makeup looks, all throughout the year!

Well, that was just a short summary of the latest addition to my lipstick collection, the Urban Decay Revolution Lippie! I really do love it, and am glad that I chose to try it as something new instead of just going for a Mac lipstick as I normally would (although I really do want to buy some more Mac lip products soon!)

Thank you for reading, as always,

P.S I will be doing Blogmas as of the 1st of December (well, attempting to do it at least!), which will involve me posting everyday up until Christmas Day! :-)

    1. I have linked the John Lewis website if you want to look on there, I wanted one of the mattes at first but couldn't find the right colour for me!

  6. That looks like the perfect nude!

  7. I loveee their Matte Revolution Lipsticks. If you like Mac Kinda Sexy, I think Stark Naked from that line is a pretty good dupe :)
