I am huge fan of Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks. I already own the shades “1993” and “Bittersweet,” and recently added 2 more shades- “Stark Naked” and “Tilt.” This review will be on the Urban Decay Matte Revolution lipstick in the shade “Tilt.”
A super-creamy, non-drying matte lipstick in an array of intensely-pigmented shades.
What it does: Urban Decay’s creamy, non-drying Matte Revolution Lipstick is as rich and buttery as the original formula. With a range of never-before-seen shades—from neutrals to brights to deep-dark colors—lips get bold color with a matte finish and velvety feel. Matte Revolution Lipstick is enriched by Urban Decay’s proprietary Pigment Infusion System, giving it an ultra-creamy texture, high-pigmentation, and optimum color pay off. Shea butter and a nourishing blend of avocado, olive, and babassu oils deeply condition lips while illipe butter—sourced from Malaysian illipe trees—provides long-lasting hydration. Lastly, vitamin C and E deliver a dose of antioxidants to lips.
$22, I got it at a discount for half off.
My Experience with Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick – Matte Tilt:
Packaging: Comes in a sleek lipstick tube. All the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks – Original, Sheer, and Matte versions have the same exact packaging except for the difference in the color of the tube. All the matte lipsticks come in a glossy black case with a purple tube inside. There is no indication of the shade of the lipstick unless you read the label on the underside which can be a matter of frustration for those who own a couple of shades from this lipstick range, like me.
Texture and Pigmentation: The creamy smooth texture and feel of this lipstick came as a big surprise to me as matte lipsticks are usually dry and tug, but not this one! This lipstick has a creamy smooth and buttery texture, which glides effortlessly with no tug on my lips. It imparts absolute full color payoff in 1-2 swipes, enough to cover even the most pigmented lips. It does not bleed.
Shade and Finish: The shade “Tilt” is described as a matte bright orange and it is true to the description. It a bright coral orange which may come across more neon-ish the deeper your skin tone is, but I am sure that this shade would look stunning on all skin tones, especially if you are a fan of “attention-grabbing lips.” This shade is perfect for spring-summer time and is perfect if you are looking for that pop of color for your lips, this shade sure is popping!!
This lipstick goes on with a slight sheen initially, but dries to a creamy matte in a few minutes, with a soft velvety look on the lips. The creamy feel and look of this lipstick is incredibly forgiving even on my dry lips. It never looks flat and does not accentuate fine lines, but as with all matte lipsticks, it’s best to make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized before application. This shade contains no shimmer.
Staying Power: Fantastic staying power. It hugs my lips and does not feel like it’s sitting on top of my lips and sliding around. This lipstick stays on my lips for 7-8 hours with many snacks and drink breaks before I start to see some fading along the inner part of my lips, but even then, the color will easily stay on the lips for 8 -9 hours without touch-ups. I find that I do require a reapplication after a full meal if it is particularly oily. There is some transfer onto cutlery and glasses, but considerably less than a traditional creamy lipstick.
Fragrance: I cannot detect any fragrance.
Overall, it’s one of the best and a very forgiving creamy matte lipstick formula in the market. This color is a must-have for this season and I highly recommend it.
