Now, I’m sure if you are a lipstick
hoarder enthusiast like
me, you probably have a decent emporium selection of lipsticks already.
Some you’ll wear frequently, others for special occasions (that killer red, you
know the one) and some will have been bought on a whim – maybe for a crazy
colour (MAC Halsey, for example) or a new, hyped formula that promises to last
forever and not give you the cat’s bum mouth situation of 99% of liquid
Honestly though? For me personally, I have an everlasting love for the nude lip. Pinky nude, sixties ultra-nude, you name it, it’s probably my jam. It’s not always a wearable look for every day, but Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the shade Naked makes it completely work-appropriate.
Urban Decay Revolution in Naked is a beautiful pink-nude; not too warm, not too nude, and no yellow-teeth syndrome induced by this shade, I promise. It won’t wash out your complexion either, due to its rosy tones and slightly sheeny finish. It’s basically the pink for people who don’t like pink, and the nude lip for those who don’t do nude lips.
I find that this shade is completely opaque in one swipe – the swatch above is a one-swipe swatch –and doesn’t skip or drag, even on dry lips. The texture is creamy, easy to apply, and comfortable to wear. I haven’t experienced any feathering using this lipstick. The formula contains jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter, which is unsurprisingly a lovely moisturising concoction. For me, it tends to last for about 2-3 hours before needing a touch-up – so don’t expect Olympic standard longevity, but what it lacks in this department, it makes up for a hundredfold in comfort.
The packaging feels very luxe – a chunky, hammered gunmetal grey outer case which is really nicely finished, well done Urban Decay. You do get slightly less than your average lipstick in one of these bullets – 2.8g as opposed to a standard MAC bullet at 3g – but really, this is splitting hairs. If you are looking for a great, comfortable, every day lip shade that suits just about everyone – look no further.
