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.

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.

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.
