Review: Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks in Turn On, Naked, and Fiend
Swatches from bottom to top: Turn On, Naked, Fiend
If you like the look of those swatches on my arm, run, don't walk, to your nearest Sephora and look for the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks, which are being discontinued and are 50% off. I hadn't had a chance to check these out before, but when I saw them for $11 each, it seemed a great opportunity to test out a few. They will NOT last long at that price, so act fast if you want some.
The formula is creamy and they swatch beautifully, particularly the deep pink Turn On. Application to the lips is similarly enjoyable, with only one pass across each lip needed to obtain optimal color saturation. They are not fully opaque, but pigmentation is far from sheer. Although Turn On is the clear favorite swatched, on the lips I prefer Naked and Fiend. Naked is a MLBB color, while Fiend is deeper and brighter - but not SO bright as Turn On, which is a bit over the top for me.
These lipsticks wear reasonably well for a creamy formula, but I think MAC cremesheens and Kevyn Aucoin are similar with superior longevity. They are not a balm-type formulation, so they do become a bit drying after a few hours. I'd suggest wearing over lip balm, but that does decrease the wear time. I didn't have any adverse reactions such as irritation or peeling.
The packaging is a sleek, silver tube with a subtle Urban Decay logo.
