Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked Review

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked

Forget all the deep, matte, 90's vibe nudes that everyone is currently coveting and let's go back to basics.We all need an easy to wear, light yet non stark pinky brown lipstick don't we? Well what if I told you I have found the very thing in Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked, a suit most complexions nude, that may just become your staple fail safe lip colour...

In my opinion lipstick packaging does tend to be boring - thick matte black, silver fonts and of course plastic outers. Well not Urban Decay who I often see as the game changer of cosmetics, would you just look at the packaging of their Revolution lipstick? A beautiful gun metal chrome effect outer that almost looks lilac in some lights complete with a little purple accent on the inside. Much like a higher end brand lipstick (think Chanel, YSL etc) this has a certain weight to it and is not your typical plastic lipstick. You will be pleased to know that it more than survives a knock in a handbag and thanks to the slanted tip of the lipstick you can pretty much apply it on the go with ease.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked is a light brown tinged pink, it is fairly light in tone yet it doesn't appear stark or too milky on the lips. If you always liked the idea of MAC Angel Lipstick (my favourite shade ever) but found it too cool in tone, this is the lipstick for you. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked  is fairly neutral in tone yet not overly yellow. Personally I find that the light pinky brown beige tone gives the illusion of plumper lips without the need for over lining - this is partly due to the soft, sheen finish which is in no way sticky!

In my experience stumbling across a lipstick that is hydrating, creamy, long wearing with a glossy finish is pretty much unheard of and yet the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick is all of this and more. It glides on the lips and feels a little like a gel, it is moisturising, not at all prone to bleeding or smearing and exceptionally comfortable. The reason I bought the Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Liner in Native was due to the natural yet glossy finish I had seen in many reviews, I worried that without it my lipstick would smudge which is not a good look when you have full lips. I needn't have bothered as it seems the formula clings to the lips with each application staying in place for a good two hours of so, longer if I don't eat or drink. Even if the shade Naked is not for you, I can not recommend the formula enough and with a vast colour line up I am sure you will find your very own perfect shade!

  7. That shade is a gorgeous nude and one that I can wear without looking like a living dead. I've never tried any UD lipsticks before but this would be first on my list to try.
