Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour

ow what a mouth-full of a title!

Ok, so I've had one of these in my posession for a while, and have been waiting to find the right oppotunity to wear said item. I decided to have an experiment yesterday, put it on and see how long it lasts for whilst doing normal things, eating / drinking / talking etc.

One of the weirdest things is it's a combination of lipstick, and lip gloss, but in a pencil! It's really super highly saturated with colour, glitter and gloss. It's really long lasting, for me, it lasted up until I took it off, which was about 6 hours of wear, it could have easily stayed on longer, and without needing to be topped up. One of the things I liked best about it, was that it didn't bleed, at all. Now, I don't usually do anything special if I wear lipstick, I don't powder my lips, use lip liner, I just plonk it on, and I do get bleed with it after a short while, to the extent that I need to remove it all and reapply. But with this there was none! It felt like there was bleed, but when I looked in the mirror there was none at all :)

Here's a swatch on my arm so you can see how saturated the colour is.

I don't know if the camera picked up just how much glitter and sparkle is in these, but there's a lot! They have a great range of colours, the colour I have is in 'Big Bang', but they also have F-Bomb (glossy deep red), Adrenaline (hot pink), Punch Drunk (lighter red), Crush (bright, non-glittery pink). They retail for £15 each, which as far as I'm concerned, is a fair price considering the quality of the product. Now, on the downside, it does also work as a lip-stain, and not necessarily in a good way. I still have a pink blotch on my arm from doing the swatch yesterday, and I've scrubbed it and showered. When I woke up this morning, my lips were still pink also, and still are now :) On a lighter note, it does add a pop of colour when adding a clear/sparkly lip gloss on top though :)

Ultimately, I'd say this is a great product, I'd highly recommend it, but be warned, you'll still be wearing the colour the next day long after you've taken it off.

  1. This is so pretty! I found your post looking for swatches of this colour, and oh wow it's so nice on you. I already have this product in F-Bomb, Crush, and Punch Drunk………… BUT I CAN'T GET ENOUGH

  2. Ah glad I found this post as I am looking for lip products that don't bleed. Now I'm older aka wrinklier i find all lip products bleed into my wrinkles, so will definitely look out for this one.
