Urban Decay Revolution lipstick - Catfight

The beauty world has gone a little crazy for Urban Decay's brand new Revolution lipsticks.  As soon as I saw the packaging I knew I wanted to give one a try.  I know, don't judge a book (or lipstick) by it's cover and all that but if a product has good looking packaging that looks good quality then I'm attracted to it, especially if it's a lipstick.  My boyfriend gave me a little bit of money to treat myself and I received a discount code from HQ Hair for 20% off, so I decided to grab one and chose Catfight.
















































































































































































The Revolution lipsticks are available in 22 shades and are described by Urban Decay as 'Creamy badass luxury'! These contain what Urban Decay call their 'Pigment infusion system' which means a super creamy formula with amazing pigmentation and extended wear.  They also contain what they have called 'Max-lip' which defines and hydrates the lips making them look fuller and plumper as well as jojoba oil, avocado oil, shea butter and cocoa butter to keep lips moisturised and soft.

I really do love the packaging!  The tube is a gunmetal (I think that would be the right name) grey colour and is shiny/reflective and faceted with Urban Decay stamped along the lid and UD stamped on the top of the lid.  Once the lid is removed you're greeted by a gorgeous purple inner tube.  The twist up is very sturdy and when you replace the lid it doesn't click back into place but it does close snugly, so I wouldn't have any worries about the lid coming off.  The actual bullet is round rather than in a tear drop shape like many lipstick, which I thought I wouldn't be keen on but I actually like it.

If you read my blog regularly you may have noticed that I'm not a nude lip person, it's all about the brights, so that's why I decided to try Catfight which is a bright fuchsia pink with a red undertone to it.

This is a gorgeous lipstick! It applies so smoothly and is opaque in one swipe.  This did bleed very slightly, but bright colours usually do, and it wasn't noticeable enough to have to wear a lip liner but you may want to.  Urban Decay have made a shade pairing guide (which you can find here) to help you find the perfect shade lip liner to match your lipstick and for Catfight they recommend Jilted, or their invisible liner Ozone.  I had this on for about 2 and a half hours a few days ago (I took it off to go in the shower) and there was absolutely no signs of it going anywhere, so I would estimate you could get at least 4 hours wear and from the swatch on my arm I can see it will also leave a stain behind. 

I think I may have my new favourite lipstick and I'd love to try a couple more shades.  Have you tried one of the Revolution lipsticks yet?

  2. I think these new UD lipsticks look lovely, I have swatched a few at the counter. I like that they are pigmented but still quite creamy and hydrating.
    You bought a great colour

    1. I think these are going to be really popular. I've noticed people are now offering these in blog giveaways rather than MAC lipsticks x
