I’ve had a fair share of mauvey-pink lip products and now I’m very keen on trying other shades within the color spectrum, like nudes. But I don’t want a cadaverous nude, I want a nude that still leans more... pink (a very bold move to step out of that comfort zone). I also want that nude to be wet-looking. So, I opt to go for the lipglosses this time ‘round and I suppose the Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss in the shade Liar ticks all that boxes.
The packaging has a badass-looking gunmetal cap engraved with the Urban Decay logo on the either sides and on the top of it. But my favorite part of the packaging is the artsy, see-through tube made out of glass with the word “Revolution” carved on it. Also, it feels heavy when I hold it with my hand, which for some reason, I like. I have nothing much to say about the doe-foot applicator except for the fact that it has quite an unusual shape compared to other regular doe-foot applicators. It gets the job done without causing me any fuss, though.
I’d describe the color of the gloss as a warm, nude peachy pink that pairs beautifully with a smokey eye. The color payoff is highly pigmented, hence the “High-Color” claim. One layer is enough but I usually apply 2 layers because I just love applying it. This lipgloss applies evenly over my lips, makes my lips look a bit plumper and feel moisturized after applying it. I haven’t thought about testing the lasting power of this product because lipglosses doesn’t have that long-lasting formulations unlike matte lipsticks and the fact that I drink water from glass in every 15 minutes, but I can assure you this stays so well on my lips, even after lots of drinking. It obviously transfers into my glass, which is normal.
I think I’m slowly transitioning from a matte lip-gal into a gloss-gal now. I’ve been eyeing the Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer and the Buxom Lip Polishes. Oh just give me all those wet-looking glosses.
PS: Much love for Adani, the one who helped getting this for me!
