Urban Decay Revolution High Gloss Lipglosses

Today I am going to share with you the newest Urban Decay lip products. I purchased a couple of them after I received a sample in my Ipsy bag a little while ago. These are the Urban Decay Revolution High Gloss Lipglosses. I bought the shades Bittersweet and Scandal.

Bittersweet (shown above) is a beautiful purple shade that is pretty bold (at least for me anyway).

Scandal (shown above) is a beautiful bright pink and is so perfect for summer for me.

I love these lipglosses, they are so comfortable to wear. They have an amazing staying power that I am really blown away with. I never expected them to last as long as they do, especially for a gloss. I can confidently say that I have easily 6 hours of wear without requiring any touch-ups. At around hour 7 I did notice that it was just starting to show some wear but to me that's amazing for a gloss. It isn't sticky or tacky on your lips. It does feel thicker on but in no way did it feel sticky or tacky to me, very comfortable to wear. I also noticed that it did not dry my lips out either, it was very moisturizing on my lips. The shades are very pigmented and I really love that!

The applicator is a plush silicone paddle applicator that is a bit rounded at the tip to let you have great control for application. The tube is a clear barrel so that you can clearly see the shade inside. The label that lists the color name is usually on the bottom of the tube but since these tubes are the usual round tubes it is towards the bottom of the barrel on the backside of the tube. The tube shape is a kind of flattened oval shape. The tube holds 0.17fl/oz of gloss. Urban Decay's site says that they contain their "Pigment Infusion System™ gives the formula its super creamy texture, insane pigmentation and superior color dispersion. It’s also laced with Hilurlip™, which defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller". I feel that the best way to get long lasting wear without it feathering is to layer the gloss over the Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Primer Pencil, this is a clear pencil that you can line and fill in your lips with to prime them for the gloss and extend your wear time.

The Revolution High Gloss Lipglosses are available in a wide arrange of 14 different shades. They retail for $22. These are available at a multitude of places that Urban Decay products are sold such as Ulta, Sephora, Macy's, and the Urban Decay site.
