Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks!


It's probably the right time to admit that I am 100% a lipstick hoarder! But when I saw on Twitter that Urban Decay were doing a deal where you can get the Revolution lipsticks for £9, I simply had to take them up on the offer! I have never tried any Urban Decay lipsticks before, as I had never really been that sold on them before! But I thought that this was such a great opportunity to try them out, and perhaps try something more daring than what I would usually! Another great thing about ordering online is the samples that you can try out for free! I chose the eyeshadow primer, which I consider a classic Urban Decay product, as its something that I have never tried but always wanted to!





The £9 deal was available across all of the Revolution Lipsticks for a limited time only. I am having a little fling at the moment with matte lipsticks. I love how they sit on the lips and I much prefer something that doesn't feel like you are actually wearing it. I was feeling very brave when I purchased them. 'Temper' and 'Tilt' are the reddest shades out of the matte collection, but in my opinion the prettiest! Being a pale person, I always find red colours quite intimidating for me to wear. However I gave them a try and have mixed feelings about them! Temper is the perfect colour for me, It isn't a true red, but it isn't orange. It has the right mixture of the two and is something I can deffo see me wearing as a evening/going out shade in the future. Tilt on the other hand is very orange. I applied this and have found that it isn't as flattering against my skin tone as Temper. With that being said when applied lightly and blended/tapped onto the lips, you can create a more subtle colour which is probably how I will wear this colour. 

The matte finish wasn't quite what I had expected, although I am probably comparing it to the finish of the Kylie Lip Kits which are obviously very drying. When I picture a matte I consider it almost a stain and smudge proof, but these lipsticks certainly need touching up after drinking or eating! But a small price to pay for what is a lovely lipstick!

Let me know what you think of these lipsticks! 
Did you take advantage of the £9 Revolution Lipstick sale!?

  1. Oh my I think I'm in love with temper...I might need to get my hands on it! I've never tried the UD lip products and I'm gutted I missed out on the sale, but still tempted to pick one up :)

    2. Thankyou for the lovely comment!
      These are the first UD products I have tried, other than the eyeshadows of course! I really love it, although I am still not confident enough to wear it as an everyday shade! The sale was so good and something that I just couldn't miss out on!

      Thanks again for the lovely comments!

      Lots of love,
      Francesca, 💜

  2. Love the temper colour! I don't actually own any Urban Decay make up, but that's a pretty good deal on two for £9! Will take a look.

      Urban Decay makeup is amazing! The Naked eyeshadow palettes are so worth the hype they get!

      Haha, no they were £9 each! So together I paid the price of one lipstick roughly which I think is an amazing deal!

    1. Hey! Thanks for the lovely comment!
      I'm the same, I have been reaching for matte lipsticks more than normal finishes recently! I think its because it makes it almost smudge proof haha! 💜

      Aww thank you, means a lot! 💜💜💜

      Ahh! what a shame! Not a lot of people knew about the offer to be fair! I tweeted about it and people were shocked that it was on!
