I know we’re not officially in Autumn just yet (I’m pretty sure it starts on the 23rd?) but the weather here has just taken a turn for the worse – cue cold winds, clouds, drizzle and general dullness. So rather aptly I have some distinctly Autumnal lipstick shades to share with you today.
Urban Decay have recently launched their Matte Revolution lipsticks, which come in a gorgeous array of nine intense, deep and highly pigmented seasonal hues…
If you’re a fan of matte lipsticks like I am, you’ll know they’re usually pretty drying on the lips, and if your lips aren’t in tip-top condition before application, then you’re going to end up with a really uneven finish, with any dry areas being highlighted by the lipstick. I suffer with particularly dry lips so this is always an issue for me and I have to work extra hard to prepare my lips so I get the best finish possible.
Urban Decay’s Mate Revolution Lipsticks are just fabulous though, they have to be one of the creamiest mattes I’ve ever tried. The formula glides on the lips with ease, it’s comfortable to wear and completely non-drying. The finished effect is an even layer velvety matte colour, with amazing pigmentation that lasts for hours without taking the moisture out if your lips.
Left to right –
- Blackmail – this looks pretty much black in the tube, but it’s actually a super deep and rich burgundy / wine shade. It brings back memories of a ‘Black Cherry’ shade of lipstick I had in the early 90’s.
- 1993 – this is a very ‘on-trend’ lip shade, very 90’s, very Kylie Jenner. This is the perfect muted brown shade for a nude lip that packs a punch.
- After Dark – a gorgeous mid berry pink, with a hint of violet shimmer.
- Tilt – the brightest coral / orange shade I’ve probably ever seen. This colour is not for the faint hearted!
These lipsticks just ooze quality – from the classic Urban Decay metallic purple box, to the black gloss and purple tube they come housed in. The lipsticks themselves are also pretty weighty – I’m just beyond impressed.
And of course the swatches! You can see the lipstick applies really cleanly and evenly, and they’re just lovely to use and wear. I have no complaints about these lipsticks whatsoever! If you’re a fan of a matte lip, you NEED to try these out, I really can’t recommend them enough.
Urban Decay’s Matte Revolution Lipsticks are £15.50 each, available now from Urban Decay.
So what do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts! I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
