My Experience with Urban Decay Big Bang Revolution High-Color Lipgloss:
Well, the gloss comes in the same transparent barrel tube packaging with a silicone doe foot applicator. It is a treat right from the packaging to its silicone plush paddle applicator that helps to apply the gloss evenly to every contour of my lips. Over all, it is really a price worthy, user friendly & travel friendly product.
Talking about my shade “Big Bang”, it is described as a bright pink with glitters which is pretty true to its description, but wait! Do not let those glitters turn you off. It comes up pretty juicy deep pink with magenta shimmers on my lips and those shimmers are not OTT or overpower its intense pink color pay off. Impressive, huh? Yes gals, I love this pink shade more for those magenta shimmers that worked perfect for my trip or even for boring parties as they will bring charm to a dead mind & heart. 😛 The moment I wear it on lips, I feel like a college girl; full of energy and decked up to live life on her own terms and enjoy to the fullest. It gives such a youthful, subtle, shimmery yet intense pink glow to the face that I won’t hesitate to sport it during daytime either.
I also find it perfect for pale/light & medium skin tones irrespective of undertones as it works so well on my pale skin with yellow undertones. I wore it almost every night during my trip to Vegas trip and clubs. The texture of the gloss seems slightly tacky, but now I have learned to work with it as in it delivers slightly translucent finish to the lips. It may be tricky for beauties with pigmented lips and dry lips as well, but pursing lips together occasionally helps. Moreover, I believe in touch ups or layering as it also conceals these flaws to a good extent. I can see that it does not bleed or look cakey on my lips, so it is a good option. But, eventually it will fade and become tacky as usual, so using lip liner/primer might help with it.
I know I am getting mad over the shade, hence I can do anything to make it work on my lips. 😛 Though I see that even after shimmers and slightly translucent finish, it delivers 80% color payoff on my lips hiding minor flaws up to a good extent. It does not accentuate my dry patches; in fact, I find it quite hydrating like other shades. Firstly, it doesn’t look frosty or icy at all, neither in person nor in pictures, and secondly I feel this pink shade would have looked dull on my face had the shimmer not been there.
Probably this is the difference of owning an Urban Decay versus ordinary shimmery gloss! These shimmers actually add fuller effect, subtle shine and glam look to our face. Even the gloss tends to stay for decent 5-6 hours on our lips with light meals; it gets faded from the centre of the lips which might need touch ups while the shimmers do not transfer on skin and are easily removable. It won’t be exaggeration if I say that I falling in love with shimmery glosses all over again because I am sure once you wear it, you will definitely say so too! I just wish the finish could have been slightly more creamy and not tacky, but then the shade compensates for everything.
Personally, I am definitely getting it again even though I know I have problems with its finish. But, the shade is so rare & appealing that I can’t let go off my obsession, as of now. I think it needs one chance from everyone despite the cons.
I am also sharing my pictures from the trip where I have worn this lip gloss:
