How I wish that this lipstick was named better!! I became a fan of the Revolution lipsticks last year; but had got quite light shades for myself. My alter ego almost forced me to get these for winters as well; and I made up my mind to get two bold and vibrant shades (though I have so many in my stash already). Urban Decay has released the sheer version of all the Revolution lipsticks last month; and my eyes are gleaming, and my palms are itching. Let’s see; how long I am able to curb my shopping addiction.
About Urban Decay F-Bomb Revolution Lipstick :
A luxury lipstick that delivers intense color payoff plus creamy shine.
Revolution Lipstick is rich, buttery lipstick at its best—with the signature Urban Decay pigment-rich color you crave. Addictive to apply (and even more addictive to wear), Revolution Lipstick glides on without dragging or skipping and hugs every curve. Just one swipe gives you a big, gorgeous lay down of color. And with shades that range from gorgeous nudes to bold brights, there’s something for everyone. Urban Decay’s Pigment Dispersion System™ gives Revolution Lipstick its super creamy texture, intense pigmentation, superior color dispersion, and extended wear. Maxi-Lip™ defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller. And a nourishing blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter keeps lips super moisturized and cushiony soft. The luxe, custom-designed gunmetal tube (lined in Urban Decay’s signature dark purple) looks so gorgeous, you’ll want to keep pulling it out of your bag.
Price: 22 USD for 2.8g product.
My Experience with Urban Decay F-Bomb Revolution Lipstick:
Packaging: The packaging is beautiful, made of recycled paper box packaging. The lipstick shade corresponds with the sticker on the box, on which all the ingredients are listed. Inside, there is a metallic case, on which the logo and the brand name are engraved. I just love this packaging. The bullet is a standard, sleek bullet, with a slant top. Though it does need some help at the nooks and corners; this was not a major problem since this shade, despite of being highly pigmented, is very easy to carry.
Shade: The shade is a classic red with neutral undertones. On me it looks a bit warm; but ever so slight to be almost negligible. It also has a nice shine, which remains on the lips for a long time. It reminds me of my grandmother, who used to eat a paan every evening when it was my grandfather’s time to return home from work. She did this so that her lips would turn re, those days people were so low on lipsticks and stuff. Her lips used to have a beautiful warm red color with a nice shine as well.
Consistency: The consistency is very balmy, creamy; moisturises the lips and sits very lightly on them. Every time you purse your lips, you will feel the moisture surge through. The lipstick simply glides on the lips, whether they are prepared or not. It provides full coverage in one swipe only and will definitely cover any pigmented lips. Despite the balmy texture, it never bleeds at all. It does not have any annoying fragrance as such.
Lasting time: This shade lasts 5-6 hours on me with snacks in between. It is a fairly staining lipstick, and the color intensity remains the same despite some heavy snacks and drinks. There is a soft sheen on the lips after the lipstick sets and after that, there is no transfer on to glasses and cups.

Will I recommend Urban Decay F-Bomb Revolution Lipstick?
Yes, I can definitely say, taking my experience and that of others, that this is one of the best range of lipsticks I have come across. Just like the NARS Audacious lipsticks and the Estee Lauder Pure Envy Lipsticks; all the shades seem equally good. The price factor is also moderate. I hope we do come across such superb range of lipsticks in every brand.
