Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color

Urban Decay has SO MUCH new stuff out right now (click here to revisit swatches of their new 15th Anniversary palette, and click here to see leeleebell’s comparison swatches with other UD palettes).

Anyway, on my last visit to Sephora, I was excited and intrigued by the new Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colors. These are chubby lip… crayons with a glossy, bright, saturated, ultra-pigmented finish. They remind me of Lipstick Queen’s Chinatown Glossy Pencils (or, I suppose, Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm or Tarte’s Natural Lip Stain or NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils), except these aren’t sheer. I filed them under “Lips (Other)” because I wasn’t sure what else to call them.  Lipstick?  Lipgloss?

Crush is screamingly bright, Barbie/Schiap blue-pink. Big Bang is a deeper, less-blue fuchsia with violet-pink sparkles. Adrenaline is a bright, hot violet-red-pink with red-pink sparkles. F-Bomb is bright cherry red with a very subtle shimmer. Punch Drunk is blinding orange creme.

I haven’t actually tried these on my lips, and I’m dying to know how they wear. Have you tried them? Do they bleed? Transfer to your teeth? Are they moisturizing? Do they last?

Urban Decay’s Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colors are $19 each.

Random trivia: you might think that bright, vibrant red is the most staining color a girl can swatch. Not so: bright, vibrant pinks stain much worse.

  • Tracy says:

    I got Crush, Big Bang and F-Bomb over the weekend and they’re kind of sick.

    The colors are, of course amazing and saturated, but they glide on easily, feel nice and moisturizing (but not sticky) on the lips and the color lasts at full volume for about 4 hours and doesn’t wear off completely for 8.

    I’m in love.
