Review - Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks in Bang

Urban Decay have released their brand new lip line which was welcomed with great applause. I have a vast lipstick collection which I am pretty happy with however whilst browsing Sephora on my way to Carrefour I decided to have a little swatch-a-thon and let me tell you... This was love at first swipe!


I bought the shade Bang which is a stunning Orange-red (it leans more on the orange side than the red). I decided to buy the corresponding lip liner as I have a few orange-red/ red-orange toned lipsticks yet didn't have an orange toned lip liner!


The lip liner is smooth and almost creamy yet has a nice matte finish so far a low maintenance long-lasting lip the liner would suffice. It is very easy to apply due to the creaminess which I like as there is nothing worse than a stiff, dry lip liner. You could wear this underneath orange lipsticks to darken them up and make them more wearable, with matching lipsticks or to lighten any darker red lipsticks and to add some warmth to them.

Lips with just the lip liner
The lipstick itself is indeed a creamy lipstick. One of the creamiest I have tried. It does however set and have superb lasting power, after 5 hours of wear it still looked smooth and perfect and like it was going nowhere! I however was going to sleep so had to take it off! Even though it is nice and thick and smooth it doesn't feel thick on the lips or move around like some creamy lipsticks can. The shade is an amazing orange red, a vibrant colour which can be worn summer, autumn, winter and spring! I imagine that dry lips would adore this lipstick and to be honest, all lips. It isn't slippy but manages to be extremely comfortable. I would say that after a few hours the shine does fade and it sets into a creamy semi-matte finish. It really is one of a kind and a beautiful formula and shade! I would definitely recommend going to your local Urban Decay counter and asking a MUA to apply this. It will be love at first sight. 

Lips with the lip liner and lipstick
The stand out product really is the lipstick. For £15 it is incredibly good value for money as I honestly haven't found a creamy, comfortable yet long lasting formula from the drugstore... even though you could probably find a similar dupe in regards to colour. So if you are after a smooth lipstick which will keep your lips looking hydrated and plump during the cold cold weather whilst still rocking an amazing colour then this is the one for you!


Have you tried any of the Revolution Lipsticks?
