Review: Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Sheer Liar & Sheer Anarchy, Buttery Smooth & Great Opacity Than Sheer Formula

Introducing Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks where they available in ten shades, each one has a rich, creamy feel and a gorgeous, high-shine finish. Let’s find out more and I am sharing two of the shades of the lipsticks.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick

‘Sheer Revolution Lipstick shades are inspired by the best of our Revolution Lipstick lineup. We’re  currently obsessed with Sheer Shame (a shade that even women intimidated by the original will love) and Sheer Slowburn (a really flattering color that’s the lovechild of F-Bomb (red) and Bang (orange)). We also love Sheer Liar, a great nude that looks amazing on any skin tone.

Sheer Revolution Lipstick comes in our cool, custom-designed lipstick component. To set this sheer formula apart, we made the case light purple (instead of gunmetal like our traditional Revolution Lipstick case).

Organically shaped facets make the case feel amazing in your hand; “Urban Decay” is debossed on the side of the lid, with “UD” debossed on the top of the cap. Unlike a traditional bullet, the trimline-style component supports the soft, creamy formula and prevents breakage and gives full-lip coverage in a single swipe (unlike the dinky application of a slimline component).

Our Pigment Infusion System™ gives Sheer Revolution Lipstick its super creamy texture, superior color dispersion and extended wear. We laced the formula with Maxi-Lip™ (which defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller), along with a nourishing blend of oils and antioxidants. Shea butter and jojoba, olive and babassu oils moisturize and condition, while vitamin C and vitamin E provide a hit of antioxidants.’

The case made it looks different from other lipsticks from it’s shape embossed with Urban Decay initials and full name over the lid. First shade that I tested out is Sheer Liar which I thought from the first look, it could be one of the wearable mauve shade.

As Urban Decay would define it as a nude shade for any skin tones, I would still think that this is a pretty mauve shade as it carries pink and brown undertone. A perfect shade for everyday wear. From the swatch, I could tell where the shade is definitely tanner than my skin, therefore it’s hard to perceive it as nude shade for any skin tone.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar Ingredients

Here would be the list of ingredients for Sheer Liar.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Liar How To

It glides so easily upon application. It felt buttery smooth, moisturizing and beautiful color payoff despite of it’s formula.

Here is how it looks on me and I do notice that it gives a high-shine over my lips like a lip gloss.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy

Sheer Anarchy is quite a contra to Sheer Liar, a bright pink shade that unleashes the boldness and edginess out of you.

As bright as it is, this shade carries blue undertone to it which makes it a cooler tone. This means it will give an illusion of brighter teeth. Sheer Anarchy is a shade you would want to wear when you are wearing less eye makeup or feel very much alive and wants to look much different.

Here’s the ingredients listing for Sheer Anarchy.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Sheer Anarchy How To

Buttery smooth application, just like how it works like Sheer Liar. Because the shade is bright and bold, you want to apply this lipstick with precise application and this could be tricky with this lipstick. Due to the rounded tip from the lipstick bullet, it will be fine if you have rounded lips and it would be challenging if you have sharper edges on the lips. You may need to use a lip brush to achieve it.

Before and after shows a big color pay off difference with great shine.

Sheer Anarchy is bold, bright and brings the edginess out of me. Beautiful.

Above all…

I love these lipsticks though they have claimed they are sheer in formula but they are way more opaque than I expected. They are buttery smooth, creamy and finishes off in high shine just like a lip gloss.  It is light weight, I could barely feel like I am wearing anything. Unfortunately, it transfers easily over drinking water and reapply is needed at most times. Definitely will need to be careful if you happened to be in contact of yours or someone else’s clothes and kissing your beloved ones.

Price: MYR85

Availability: Sephora stores nationwide

PROs:

  • Great opacity than sheer formula

CONs:

  • Easily transfers
  • Frequent reapplication

My Rating: 4.5/5

Review: Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational, Vibrant, Creamy and Heavily Pigmented Lipstick

Don’t be afraid to wear bold lips occasionally and never underestimate how much attention it draws within the crowd. I must admit that bold lips can be quite a hassle to maintain it if it doesn’t stay. I have tried this lipstick from Maybelline that was sent to me which is Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational Lipstick.

Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational in POW 2 1

‘Consisting of new pink fashion shades, Pink Alert by Color Sensational combines vivid red-based pigments to coat lips with a striking hue. It’s nourishing honey nectar leaves behing a creamy feel so lips don’t look or feel dry. The result is a popping pink shade that is oh-so-pretty and trendy. Available in four gorgeous pink shades.’

Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational in POW 2 Comes with a silver base casing that holds up on the lipstick bullet and transparent pink cover to secure the lipstick. It is very simple, modern and professional.

Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational in POW 2 Swatch

The shade that I was provided is POW2 which is a very bright neon pink. I really wish that they would come out with shade names instead of codes. From the swatch, I’ll be able to tell that the texture is creamy, glides easily and quite heavily pigmented as from the above photo I only layered twice.

Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational in POW 2 Before & After

I love how bright, vibrant the shade is! You can definitely tell from me with and without the lipstick. Just like how the swatch is, it glides on easily, creamy and heavily pigmented. It finishes off with quite a bit of shine.

Maybelline Pink Alert by Color Sensational in POW 2 1 - Traclyn Yeoh

This is how it turns out for me and with just simple makeup, the vibrant shade of the lipstick brighten up my entire look.

Above all…

I love this lipstick! If only it has greater staying power, it will be perfect. I wasn’t expecting it to stay entirely on my lips since it was not promised from the beginning. I tried my best to keep it on such as using straw for drinking and there is a need to touch up after having a meal. I would say when you want to wear bold lips, you need to be hardworking to keep checking and reapply if you need to.

This is a great pay off for a lipstick for it’s texture, opacity, quality and price. While having this lipstick on, I did not feel any dryness for my lips instead it kept them moisturized all the time.

Price: MYR29.90

Weight: 3.9grams

Availability: National leading pharmacies, selected departmental stores, super and hypermarkets.

PROs:

  • Bright and vibrant shade
  • Creamy and glides easily
  • Heavily pigmented
  • Kept lips moisturised

CONs:

  • No staying power

My Rating: 4.9/5

Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick Fulfills 3 Factors That I’m Looking For

I picked up this lipstick along with Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation and when it comes to lipstick, I’m always looking forward for the hydration factor, ease of application and opacity. I’m sure that’s what everyone else would look for too, am I right? Let me share my thoughts on Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick 17 Rose Millesime Closeup

Upon looking closely, the lipstick bullet looked like it has quite a bit of glitters which worries me as I have yet to be ready for any glitter lipstick and was thinking if this could be my everyday lip color.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick 17 Rose Millesime Label

The shade that I picked is Rose Millesime, which was introduced by the Beauty Advisor on the most wearable color of all. Judging from the label, I saw an arrow on the lower right corner and I was very sure that the label can be peeled off with further information inside.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick 17 Rose Millesime Ingredients

I was right! Under the label is where the ingredient were listed and from the listing , I noticed that it doesn’t have alcohol or Paraben in it. However, it does have silica if that would be your concern.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick 17 Rose Millesime Shade

The shade number is printed under the lipstick and as mine is Rose Millesime, it is coded as 17.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick 17 Rose Millesime Swatch

I bought the lipstick without swatching it as I was in a hurry to purchase it and little did I know that the shade is much more redder and prominent than I thought. I would say the shade is a soft red color. Looking from the outside of the lipstick, I thought it could be a mauve shade or something lighter.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick 17 Rose Millesime Lips

Even so, the shade doesn’t trouble me. It is still wearable and slightly brighter from the swatch. It is quite opaque that the lipstick was able to cover my uneven lip color. Once applied, it doesn’t have any glittery finish and it was creamy.  It was easy to apply and glides easily without fuss. Most of the time, I didn’t have to use lip brush to apply it at all and I would still be able to achieve precise application.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick 17 Rose Millesime Traclyn

This is how I look with the Rose Millesime, it doesn’t look too bad isn’t it? Please ignore my messy hair, I didn’t blow dry it and got that bed head style. This shade is very feminine and good to go for everyday look.

Above all…

This is one lipstick that I find that is quite nice to have. It fulfilled the 3 factors that I was looking and I  didn’t see how it performed any further than it. I really wish that it could have a better staying power as it does slip off easily from drinking and eating. If you are looking for inexpensive basic lipstick, I would recommend you to try this.

Price: MYR33.90

Weight: 3.5grams/ 0.12oz.

Availability: Sunway Pyramid (LG1, LOT1.65A)

PROs:

  • Easy to glide on lips for application
  • Hydrates whenever the lipstick is on
  • Great opacity

CONs:

  • Easily to slip off, doesn’t stay long
  • Available only at one location

My Rating: 4.8/5
