About The Product:
A super creamy lipstick with a sheer, shiny finish and richly pigmented color.
What it does:
Urban Decay’s Sheer Revolution Lipstick is everything you love about the original Revolution lipstick, but with a sheer, shiny finish. Every shade features a rich, creamy feel and a gorgeous, high-shine finish. Like Urban Decay’s original formula, this sheer lipstick hugs lips, sweeping on with an ultra-smooth, budge-free application.
Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™ gives Sheer Revolution its creamy texture, ultimate color dispersion, and extended wear. Infused with a nourishing blend of oils and antioxidants Maxi-Lip™, it defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller. Shea butter, jojoba, olive, and babassu oils moisturize and condition, while vitamin C and vitamin E provide a dose of antioxidants.

My Experience with Urban Decay F-Bomb Sheer Revolution Lipstick:
As you all know from my preview post, I purchased 8 of the sheer revolution lipsticks when they had newly released and I have reviewed some of them here already. I was having a very good experience with these lipsticks till now till I started using this particular shade.
Very similar to the original revolution lipstick only that the tube of this is light purple instead of gunmetal.
This lipstick is very smooth and creamy and feels incredible lightweight on the lips. It is also very hydrating and does not settle in fine lines or accentuate chapped dry lips.
The shade F-Bomb is described as a sheer red. The original version of this lipstick has been reviewed by Arpita here on IMBB and that version is absolutely stunning. However, this sheer version of this shade has somehow turned out wrong. This particular shade applied very patchy and deposits uneven pigmentation on my lips. I feel like red lips look best in a good matte version and these sheer lipsticks have a high glossy shine which do not help, instead make the patchy uneven pigmentation of this on the lips much more notable.
Since the original F bomb shade is so pigmented and such a strong vibrant shade, it does not translate well when it is tried to be sheered out. I did not face any such problem when I used any of the previous shades from this line.
Since these lipsticks are very creamy and have a slip to them, it is also difficult to get a smooth clean outline to lips which is of utmost importance while wearing a red lip.
This particular shade also fades unevenly, especially if I eat or drink anything. The high shine dulls down to a satin finish after about 3 hours and the color starts fading quite quickly after that. It does last on the lips for about 4 hours.
This lipstick has a very mild almost undetectable scent.
Overall; out of all the shades of the UD sheer revolution lipsticks I have used and reviewed here on IMBB so far, this one is my least favorite. I would not recommend getting this particular shade, instead go for the regular revolution version instead.
