Seriously matte lips has recently been on trend now for sometime, and usually the lipstick formula I usually opt for. .. I don’t know why but I feel a bit more comfortable wearing bold brighter matte colours. Something about the formula makes it all the more wearable than a bright glossy lip and just a tad bit more muted and toned down.
You also don’t have to worry about it smearing accross the face, or getting your hair stuck to it in the wind as it dries down with minimal transfer to a matte finish. I also find that there’s something sleek about the whole matte lips which I love to rock. ..
Now the only thing that is a downside with matte lips is how drying some formulas can be hence accentuating dry flakiness (sometimes dryness that wasn’t even apparent before you applied your matte lipstick!) and sometimes can be very uncomfortable to wear. ..so much so that they become sore after extended use of matte lips…😣
and that’s where amazing lipstick formulas like ‘Urban decay’s matte revolution lipsticks* need a shout out.
Don’t subject yourself to some matte lipsticks that feel really dry and can ever feel like they suck all the moisture out of your lips. Urban Decay’s creamy, non drying Matte Revolution Lipstick feels amazing, yet the effect is so matte and velvety. Plus, the insane pigment load gives you a big laydown of color in just one swipe.

The packaging of these gorgeous lipsticks are similar to the creamy Urban decay revolution lipsticks but they differ from them with the shiny black (with gold shimmer) packaging:super sleek and sturdy packaging. I find them to look luxurious as well being a fantastic product and so all the more reason to keep one in your hand bag too! 😉 #stopshowingoff😂
The amazing creamy non-drying formula of these lipsticks are superb. They are super opaque and pigmented and glide on the lips with one stripe. A few stripes over the lips and you’re with a full on matte lip. Simply gorgeous.👌💄And not to mention the awesome unique shade range urban decay offers.Every colour in the range is different, no repeats and so you’ll be wanting to try all of them!..There’s 9 colours to choose from and I have 6 of the 9 shades available to share with you so let’s get right into them.
1995- is the most amazing brown dark nude shade I have found (would be a dark brown on paler skinned).Simply unique. The shade name is perfect as I was rocking the brown lips in the 90’s!!….Well it’s back…😆
It’s so flattering on my medium skintone and looks amazing paired with a smoke-y eye look. A definite must have for all skintones and if you love brown lipsticks then this is for you,and not to forget it’s totally in trend now too.👌
After dark*: Is a flattering mauve purple-y pinky shade and I could I say I love this to the point that I could just wear this lipstick colour and formula anytime, everywhere and everyday. It’s one of those colours that just suits me and when you know it kind of looks amazing on you ( 😄). It is a deeper shade but because it is matte I find it quite wearable. Also as these lipsticks are pigmented you can just dab some on your lips for a sheer wash of colour which on my lips look like a ‘your lips but better’ colour and full on opaque if that’s what you want.
Bad blood : A perfect deep red shade that compliments my skin tone beautifully. I love to wear this lipstick as the focus of my look and keep the eyes minimal. A true glamourous red lip! (p.s this is a sample size lipstick and was sent out by feelunique.com- just had to fill in your details and they sent out it as a complimentary sample even WITHOUT purchasing anything! awesome 😆)
Tilt*; An orange shade. Not the typical shade I would rock on a day to day basis. I like to wear this by just dabbing it slightly on the lips making it a sheer lipstick.I find it more wearable and less intimidating as it quite bright! ! I just don’t have the courage to wear it to it’s full pigmentation. Definitely a beautiful shade nonetheless…maybe get more wear out of it in the summer months to get my come. 😆For orange lipstick lovers this would be a must have…
I also love the way that these matte lipsticks stain the lips and so are super long wearing. I feel that aswell as being comfortable, the longevity of the lipsticks makes it quite acceptable for its retail price of £15.50 on Urbandecay.co.uk.
They last on me for about atleast 5 hours when eating and drinking with some signs of wearing.. I do find that these are very long lasting as even some liquid lipsticks start to crumble at the 4 hours mark and these lipsticks wear off nicely leaving a nice stain behind (and if you’re not eating then they’ll stay on even longer!) They also don’t feel heavy or tight on the lips being that they are very pigmented so a 10/10.
If you’re looking to find a unique shade of lipstick, and one that’s matte and long wearing and very comfortable then I totally recommend you to invest in one of these! You probably will go back to get more! 💄👌
Let me know if you’ve tried any of these…and which ones are your favourite? My favourite is ‘after dark’ 👌💄❤
