Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos, and FOTD

The Muse was thinking about it and she decided that she might contact the great Glen Campbell to revise “Like a Rhinestone Cowboy” temporarily to “Like a Midnight Cowboy…”

Has a nice ring to it dontcha think?

Fun fact: Did you know the first shimmery shade of gold shadow that the Muse ever purchased was Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowboy?

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowboy remains a tried and true favorite for the Muse for over 10 years so you can imagine her excitement when she heard that Urban Decay was releasing a shade of it in lipstick form with it Spring Collection.

I had my worries about the leap of Midnight Cowboy from eye shadow formula to lipstick. The shade is a cross between champagne and gold with heavy duty shimmer so the idea of wearing such a shade on my lips had me slightly worried how it would work out. Now I do think that the lipstick color is actually a good deal more beige when compared to the shadow which again had me worried because I don’t do nudes too well at all. Normally nude shades of lipstick make my full face even fuller so I avoid them at all costs. But bless be! Urban Decay Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy works out beautifully on the Muse!

I think part of the reason that the color works out so well for me is partially due to the fact that the lipstick formula has a moisturizing base and a beautiful glossy finish. Upon application it almost feels like I’m applying gloss as the lipstick simply glides on and has a wonderful buttery texture. The color isn’t as pigmented as other shades in the collection but it manages to give a nice champagne nude finish with a hint of golden shimmer.

The awesome packaging of the product goes without saying I’m sure but if you’d like to hear the Muse rave on and on about it do check out her full review of Urban Decay Lipsticks.

Although Urban Decay Lipstick Midnight Cowboy is probably more suitable for Summer due to it’s warm base the Muse still thinks it’s a rather nice shade to release in the Spring to pair with a golden eye look! It’s truly stunning on the lips, has a wonderful glossy formula, beautiful packaging, and of course bears the Urban Decay brand name (that along should make you want it).

All in all I really enjoyed Urban Decay Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy and I highly recommend snagging one as it’s Muse Approved for purchase! This Muse loves it.

    First of all, thanks for BEST EVER swatches for Urban Decay mu. I know it takes alot of time to take the right picture, upload, write about the product etc… so thank you for taking time to do all that- it’s extremely helpful! Secondly, I wish there was a pale pink version of this Midnight Cowboy lipstick- I like beige too but would just LOVE to have a transparent, shimmery L/S with a hint of pale pink. Is there anything similar that comes to your mind that you would suggest to me, oh great makeup guru? :)

    No I haven’t tried Naked yet, thanks for the tip! Pale pink sounds wonderful but there doesn’t seem to contain any shimmer though?

    :)

    Do you think Midnight cowboy is to sheer to neutralise the pink in my lips. You are officially my favorite make up swatches. Your eye shadow looks amazing. I didnt love the clarins lipstick but I loved your eye shadows.

      aw jenel thanks *hugs* you’re super kind! Thanks for the lovely comment.

      It might be a little sheer to neutralize really pink lips but if you prep with a lip primer prior you can take full advantage of the gold shimmer :-D Hope this helps!
