Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22) is a new Summer 2015 permanent lipgloss launch that will be available in fourteen shades on April 15th when the Urban Decay Summer 2015 Collection launches officially.
Urban Decay has been all about Naked lately which, honestly, is quite alright with me but let’s not forget what Urban Decay is truly known for. COLOR! Loud, bold, vibrant color! Urban Decay Ultra Naked Nourishing Lipgloss launched last year and I honestly loved the formula and natural shades but for those that wanted something intense, well, Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss wasn’t it.
Urban Decay hasn’t really hasn’t a had daring lipgloss launch since Pocket Rocket and really those weren’t particularly pigmented. Most fans want to re-live there Lip Gunk days and that hasn’t really happened until perhaps now!
Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss is marketed as a high coverage, ultra pigmented formula that promises to lay down opaque color on a single application.
Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss is an interesting gloss that I actually love to hate at the moment.
Here’s the deal..
These little bad boys come in a rather slick flat tube barrel with a metalized gunmetal cap and accents. They weight in at 0.17 oz in size and have a paddle applicator for application. The formula has absolutely no fragrance or taste. Now, it deserves to be mentioned some glosses say they are without flavor or fragrance but end up tasting a little plastic-y or perhaps a little like cardboard. These have absolutely ZERO flavor or fragrance. So if you’re a sensitive Sally you’ll love this formula!

The shades are fairly pigmented but I don’t know if they are Urban Decay pigmented. They have a fairly excellent color coverage but many colors I needed about two sometimes three applications for the best intensity and finish. I don’t like how these apply. I blame it on the paddle applicator perhaps? They have this rather dry way of applying that makes them look less than glossy and they end up look blotched up and streaky or even patchy on my lips. So on the first application I’m rarely happy with the results and I find myself going in for several more layers so the color looks more even and smooth. It’s just a weird gloss texture that doesn’t seem to spread well. Again, I think the applicator might be partially to blame for this as it seems to not saturate well with the gloss so you end up with a bit of dragginess as you apply.
It’s not a thick gloss nor is it super tacky or sticky yet it wears very comfortably and long for about five hours on my lips. Although they kinda apply dry and draggy they do feel pleasantly hydrating on my lips through the wear so they aren’t sucking moisture away from my lips but lightly hydrating them.

Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss has potential but doesn’t completely capture my heart. I wish the gloss formula was a little thinner, a bit slicker, and a lot more shiner. I also which they applied a bit better as at the moment I feel like they just drag on and look terribly patchy and uneven if I don’t pay special attention during application! On the upside, the colors are really gorgeous and there are some keepers in this release like 69, Brickhouse, Liar, and Failbait! I’m sure you’ll find one to love but beware as the formula doesn’t always play nice.
Will you be indulging?
