First Impression: Urban Decay Revolution High Color Lipgloss in Failbait

I believe that the most anticipated makeup launch for me this year were two new product lines by Urban Decay. I was really looking forward to it and I got the Revolution gloss as soon as I can. I decided that the best choice would be a very neutral and wearable color and I am really glad to tell you that I do like quite a lot!

Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00) has a high coverage, ultra-pigmented formula that lays down all the color in one coat.

The Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss comes in quite a range of different tones, colors and finishes – you can choose out of fourteen beautiful shades that are all creamy and some have sparkle textures. As usual, the brand introduces several neutral colors, brights, deep shades, pinks, reds and purples. That is quite a standard color range for lip products with no unexpected shades to be honest. The most unique to my mind is the Bittersweet that has a corresponding blush – bright ultra-violet lipgloss and the same color-themed blush. The rest shades are pretty wearable depending on your color preferences. As for me I decided to get the most neutral and cool-toned shade out of the line – the Failbait.

Neutrals and nudes are my most favorite lip products and when there is something new on the market I definitely get the nudes to try. If I like the nudes I might get some brighter and deeper colors as well. This Urban Decay lipgloss has a very beautiful packaging with a gun-metal cap and wavy-like, texturized pattern on the tube. It has a transparent bottom part so you can easily identify the color inside. You get the amount of 5.1 ml or 0.17 fl oz that is not that much actually, as the majority of brands offer the gloss size in-between 6-8 ml or 0.20-0.27 fl oz. In this case the amount of product you get with the Urban Decay gloss is equal to smaller MAC Lipglasses. But it will nevertheless take you quite sometime to use this gloss till its last bit and you should get a new one in 3-6 months out of hygienic concern so I don’t think its a bad thing at all.

What I really love about this lipgloss is the color! It is so hard to find a cool-toned pink on the market today. This shade is medium light and cool-toned pink with beautiful glossy finish. It applies quite evenly on my lips and the tapered sponge tip applicator allows to precisely contour my lips and place the gloss directly within the lip lines. Failbait seems to be very hydrating and comfortable to wear although it is somewhat sticky. Its stickiness doesn’t bother me that much but I honestly prefer my lip glosses to be otherwise. I cannot say it is extremely lightweight and I think it will be most appropriate for cooler weather.

Overall I think it is a nice range of lip glosses with minor drawbacks like stickiness, that is not that bad at all. I really like the color selection and you could be quite rebellious with you choice! I really am thinking of getting the Bittersweet pair – as cool-toned purples are my favorite. There cannot be too many lip glosses in you makeup bag so this one is worth checking out – you really might like some shades and then get a corresponding blush to accompany it.
