Review: Urban Decay Lipstick Revolution


I’ve always been a MAC girl when it comes to lipsticks and I realized how I haven’t been quite as adventurous as I could be when it comes to lipsticks. Enter Urban Decay’s newest line of lipsticks called the Urban Decay Lipstick Revolution. Their previous line did not really interest me but my gosh when the swatches for their newest line were popping all over the internet, I just new I had to get my hands on them.



It took me forever trying to select two shades from the 22 gorgeous shades available. I had to base my two choices on the swatches online and I finally went with Fiend and Anarchy. 


Based on photos online, the packaging of their old lipstick line was edgy but really bulky so I am happy to report that the packaging of their newest line is anything but bulky. The new lipsticks tubes are made up of sleek purple material that looks like metal (or maybe it’s actually metal). My only issue with the packaging is that it’s quite the fingerprint magnet but whatever, I simply cannot contain my newfound love for these lipsticks so I’m just going to continue.


Left: Anarchy; Right: Fiend

Fiend is such a wearable rosey beige. It looks so natural on the lips and I could totally wear this EVERY DAY if only I did not love it so much and I don’t want to used it all up too soon. I can find myself wearing this to school, to a date, to do errands, everywhere! The formulation is impeccable as it is so creamy and it’s also pigmented enough to cover the lips in just one swipe. It’s perfection, really. You’ll have to do a touch up after you eat though. However, I personally do not mind having to do so because I’d rather have a slightly moisturizing lipstick than a drying lipstick that stays on for daaaaaaaaays.


Anarchy is the brightest, boldest, bestest, fuschia pink shade I have in my collection. It’s a suuper bright fuschia with cool undertones.  It’s pigmentation is OFF THE CHARTS, my jaw literally dropped when I first swatched it because I didn’t expect it to be even more vibrant on my hand that on the tube. The shade is so intense that I noticed a teeny bit of feathering when I applied it on my lips but heck, I LOVE IT. It’s the perfect pink shade for summer in my opinion. You can easily put on a bare face, fix up your brows, swipe on this killer lipstick, and you are GOOD TO GO. I love how the cool undertone makes my teeth seem whiter! The formulation is also amazing in my opinion because it’s not very drying considering how pigmented it is. I’m not the biggest fan of matte lipsticks so I really liked it’s glossy finish as well. This stays on all day and leaves a slight stain even after wiping it off with makeup remover.







Wew, did you feel my enthusiasm over these lippies? I hope you did! These were love at first swipe and my love for these have grown even deeper as I got to use these more and more. I highly recommend these for everyone to try and I’m sure there’s a shade for everyone because they have a huge selection of shades to offer. I had my grandpa buy these for me from the States because they are not available in the Philippines, unfortunately. Try looking for a relative who lives in the states to buy it for you or check out  instagram shops! Good luck! <3

That’s it for now guys!

Much love,
