Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in 'Bang'

Urban Decay have recently added 22 brand new shiny lipsticks to their range, along with some matching liners. I am a big fan of their eyeshadows and liners so was keen to try out a lipstick. I went to the counter, had a swatch and a think and went home. I picked one up in Bristol at the blogger meet (see my haul post here), and have been obsessed since. 

I picked Bang, which is a bright orange red - not dissimilar to MAC Lady Danger, really, but as that is one of my all time (if not the!) favourite lipstick, I am always open to similar colours. I love this shade of red, it suits my colouring and brightens up my face (I hope!). What makes Bang different is the formula - super creamy and glossy, which makes it comfortable to wear. Urban decay claimed the lipsticks are rich, buttery and pigmented & I completely agree. You only need one swipe with this lipstick and your lips are covered. f you want a really creamy and pigmented lipstick then definitely check these out. 

These are the same price as MAC lipsticks, but I'm not in a rush to add more to my collection. This colour was the one that I liked the most - all the shades are pretty dupeable to be honest! :) Another slight annoyance is the shape of the lipstick - it's hard to draw it on neatly without a brush because it's so round which is a pain, especially with such a pigmented colour.

Overall I am loving Bang, but the range is not exciting enough for me to buy any more! Have you tried them? 



  1. Totally agree about these! The finish is gorgeous and there's a few more I'd like to get, but for £15 I'd much rather invest in MAC lippies that I can back to MAC! But you really do suit that shade :) xx

  2. I have heard so much about the UD lipsticks, definitely need to get myself to a UD counter and check them out! It looks lovely on you :) And i totally agree with the shape, I hate those shaped lipsticks. Its so not easy on the cupids bow!
