How are you doing today? My special thanks to IMBB readers and writers both who motivate, cheer me up with every good & bad experiment in makeup. I would have never mustered the courage to wear neutral pink/peach shades or even pink lip colors without motivation and appreciation that you all show through your likes and comments. Now, I find myself open to try every lip color from light to deep, from shimmery to matte. So, let’s read further to know more about Urban Decay Matte Temper Matte Revolution Lipstick!
Ditch that dry-feeling matte lipstick. With Matte Revolution Lipstick—our super-creamy, nondrying formula—your lips will look AND feel amazing. Finally, a matte lipstick you’ll love wearing.
The lineup? Nine never-before-seen shades from neutrals to brights to deep-dark colors.
Matte Revolution Lipstick features our proprietary Pigment Infusion System™, which gives the formula its super-creamy texture, insane pigmentation and superior color dispersion. We also loaded Matte Revolution Lipstick with a long list of nourishing ingredients, including a blend of avocado, olive and babassu oils. Shea butter conditions; illipe butter (derived from Malaysian illipe trees) provides long-lasting moisture; and vitamin C and vitamin E provide a hit of antioxidants.
We custom-designed the gorgeous component with organically shaped facets, and made the case pearlescent black (to set this matte version apart from our original and Sheer formulas). The trimline-style component supports the soft, creamy formula and prevents breakage, yet still provides full-lip coverage in a single swipe.

My Experience with Urban Decay Matte Temper Matte Revolution Lipstick:
The lipstick’s packaging is pretty similar to rest of the shades and I often get confused with packaging unless I read the shade detail in cardboard packaging or at the bottom of the bullet. Over all, I find it pretty user friendly & travel friendly.
The shade “Temper” is described as matte bright orange red which is true to its description. It comes up semi-matte orange red on my lips with more orangish hue, though sometimes it looks red under different lights. I find it slightly similar to my Bobbi Brown Art Stick Sunset Orange in both finish and pigmentation. But, the Bobbi Brown one looks more creamy matte than this Urban Decay one. I really love such shades that compliment really well with plum/purple outfits apart from summery corals/whites and black outfits.
This shade is one such versatile color that compliments my pale skin tone under any light and weather around. And after my sister snatched my most loved Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange, I had to get this “Temper”. But, I also bought the Sunset Orange again.
The texture of matte Temper is, again, semi-matte and it slips easily on my normal dry lips like Matte Afterdark though it does not contain shimmers. I love how it gives a lightweight, gel like consistency and finish which does not look creamy, cakey even after layering. It does slide like a creamy-matte lipstick on lips, but I would call it a matte as I don’t notice any creamy residue or glossy shine which is most likely seen with most creamy-matte shades. But thankfully, not in this case! I like that it does not sit on top of my dry patches or slip beneath lip lines which makes it make a perfect match for every beauty.
It is way pigmented and imparts nearly full color payoff with 1-2 swipes without looking heavy or cakey on lips! That further explains its utility for everyone including pigmented lips. I also find it perfect for ageing beauties because it won’t add years to our skin by accentuating or highlighting our lips lines. Instead, it imparts a soft glow and pigmentation that looks pretty youthful to put it this way! Needless to say, it won’t bleed or feather around our lips. The shade stays for good 7-8 hours on my lips with light snacks and tea/coffee break while it might stay as long as 7+ hours in exceptional cases.
Being a semi-matte shade, it does not provide any hydration to my lips. But then I did not find the need of a lip balm with this shade either. In fact, I never feel like using a lip balm on lips even after removing it off lips. I am pretty sure it will work well on normal dry lips as it effortlessly slips on my lips for 7+ hours. There is nothing I could complain about this beautiful shade with amazing texture as well. I feel we all need one such shade in our kit to add a variety and change. I have to get it again as I love such bright orange-red shades. You know, right?

Cons of Urban Decay Matte Temper Matte Revolution Lipstick:
Well, as of now I can hardly think of any con. Moreover, I have special love for such semi-matte orange-red shades that explains my biased opinion for this shade. 😛 But to be honest, there is nothing we can be concerned about as the shade is gorgeous, has a gel like, semi-matte texture that is beyond excellent. How cool is that? I will definitely get it again & again and I wholeheartedly recommend this shade and lipstick to everyone.
