Urban Decay Revolution High Colour Lip Gloss

I'll admit, when I first saw the new Urban Decay lip glosses, I quickly assumed that they were mediocre and over hyped, so I quickly bypassed them. Fortunately, I bought this on the spur of the moment and have been raving about it ever since. Kicking myself for not collecting a few more while I was there…

The Urban Decay Revolution High Colour Lipgloss comes in 14 different shades in a variety of nudes, brights and deeper, bolder colours. It has the intensity of a lipstick and the shine of a lipgloss. Each of these glosses are packaged in a clear, luxe tube with dark chrome accents and a doe foot applicator. The applicator is firm with a bit of a pointed tip for precise and even application.

The texture of this lip gloss is very plush, smooth and creamy. Unlike the Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip glosses - which provides a more natural, sheer colour and coverage, the Revolution High Colour Lipgloss is rich in pigment, with an intense colour pay off. These come in a range of both cream and shimmery finishes that are just opaque.

The consistency of this product is thick and creamy but it's lightweight and very comfortable on the lips. It does leave a bit of a tacky feel, but it is very hydrating and do not accentuate fine lines, cracks or flakey lips. It does have a subtle vanilla scent, very pleasant unfortunately it doesn't linger very long and it has absolutely no taste. This lip gloss instantly makes the lips appear fuller and plump, and it does not bleed or feather. The formula is long wearing, lasting up to 6-8 hours with very light eating and drinking. It can transfer (obviously…), and you may need to touch up during the day, but it's quite travel-friendly and conveniently fits in any bag, clutch or wallet since the tube is rather flat.

I purchased the Urban Decay Revolution High Colour Lipgloss in the shade 'liar', which is a medium pinky-beige nude with cool undertones. 'Liar' is one of the most flattering 'MLBB' shades and has definitely been one of my go-to products and everyday essential.

This product retails for $32 exclusively at Mecca Maxima and is a part of the Urban Decay's permanent range.
