In case you didn't know, Sephora and Urban Decay have all 3 formulas of the Revolution lipsticks on sale right now for $13 CAD. So of course I figured I needed a few more, to try out the different formulas. I only had 1 Revolution lipstick in the shade 'Naked', and have been tempted to try out the other 2 formulas, Sheer and Matte, but just hadn't gotten around to it. I really like the formula of the Revolution lipstick, for me they last a good 4 hours without needing any touch-up, ony needing to be touched up after eating. They also feel really moisturizing and doesn't dry out my lips at all, which is a bonus! I also found in my Sample Stash samples of the Revolution formula as well as the Sheer. I thought it might be interesting to see swatches of the ones I, and of course my sister, have so you could see them beside other shades.
In the Revolution formula I/we have -
Naked - nude pink - the perfect color lipstick when you don't know what shade to wear!
Fiend - muted rose - my sister and I both wanted this one but it was the last one, I am sure my sister would let me borrow it!
Rapture - dusty rose - another great neutral shade, I am pretty sure I have a few similar shades, another one of my sisters!
In my Sample Stash I have -
69 - bright red with pink undertone - way out of my comfort zone but I love reds on other people.
Rush - pink-mauve - would be a great everyday shade.
Streak - coral pink - I was going to pick up this shade as i have been looking for a coral, but I chickened out!
Liar - pinky-brown nude - I had this one in my hand but then my sister reminded me that I probably have a few similar to this one!
In the Revolution formula there are 18 shades - Naked2(medium beige nude0, Liar(pinky-brown nude), Lovelight(pale peachy pink shimmer), Naked(nude pink), Native(pale pink), Turn On(rosy pink), Piend(muted rose), Rapture(dusty rose), Rush(pink mauve), Streak(coral pink), Anarchy(bright fushia), Jilted(deep fuchsia shimmer with blue shift), Catfight(pink-fuchsia with slight red undertone),69(bright red with pink undertone), F-Bomb(classic red), Bang(bright orange-red), Manic(soft wine), and Venom(bright plum). There is a shade for everyone here, and I love the formula.
In the Sheer formula I/we have -
Sheer Liar - sheer pinky-brown nude - my daughter actually picked this one up, it is her first lipstick! She loves it, just a hint of color.
Sheer Rapture - sheer dusty rose - I know I said I probably have a few in this shade, but I don't have any in a sheer formula!
Sheer slowburn - sheer orange-red - I picked up this shade as my coral, it is bright but you can wear it sheer or build it up, I figure I can get comfortable with it sheerer than slowly build my way up!
Sheer Shame - sheer berry - this was my sister's first Urban Decay lipstick, she picked it up in the fall to get herself more comfortable with darker shades. I am still debating whether or not to go pick this one up, I really like it!
In my Sample Stash I have -
Sheer Ladyflower - sheer rose-pink - they were sold out of this one, I was looking at it!
Sheer Anarchy - sheer fushia - a little to pink for me.
Sheer Shame - sheer berry - again I really have to decide if I am going to pick it up before they are sold out in store!
Sheer Walk Of Shame - sheer pale nude-pink - I don't see any pink in this one at all, to me it looks like a colorless gloss.
There are 10 shades in the Sheer Revolution formula - Sheer Walk of Shame(sheer pale nude-pink), Sheer Liar(sheer pinky-brown nude), Sheer Obsessed(sheer baby pink), Sheer Rapture(sheer dusty rose), Sheer Ladyflower(sheer rose-pick), Sheer anarchy(sheer fuchsia), Sheer Streak(sheer coral-pink), Sheer Slowburn(sheer orange-red), Sheer F-Bomb(sheer red), and Sheer Shame(sheer berry). Even though they are called 'sheer' you can really build them up with only a few swipes on your lips. A great way to work yourself up to wearing bolder colors.
In the Matte formula I picked up -
Matte Stark Naked - matte light nude - of course I would pick up a nude shade to try out the formula!
Matte Bad Blood - matte deep red - I wasn't planning on picking up another shade but I went home and got to thinking, I don't have a red lipstick....I went back and had some help to pick up a red that would suit me. I am not sure if I will ever wear it outside the house, but I have a red lipstick that looks good on me!
There are 9 shades in the Matte Revolution formula - Matte Stark Naked(matte light nude), 1993(matte medium brown), Bad Blood(matte deep red), Matte Temper(matte bright orange red), Tilt(matte bright orange), Menace(matte medium fushia pink), Bittersweet(matte bright purple), and Afterdark(matte deep berry wine). There is probably a matte shade for everyone!
I like that they made the outside tube just a little different shade for each formula. Gunmetal shade for Revolution, pale purple for the Sheer and black for the Mattes. I think it will make it easier when loking for a formula, as long as you remember which color of tube is for which formula!
I ended up picking up a few from the Sheer formula as well as the Matte formula, both of which I haven't tried before. I am looking forward to seeing if I like the other 2 formulas as much as I like the Revolution lipstick that I already had. On Sephoras site, all the shades are showing as out of stock but I would go into your Sephora store to see what they have instock. I was in my Sephora just the other day and they still had most shades in stock, if they don't have a shade you are wanting just ask, it may be underneath where they have the overstock! I am still trying to decide if I should go back and pick up any more shades?! What do you think, will you or have you picked up any of the Urban Decay lipsticks since they went on sale?
