I feel like the last person on Earth, but I finally got my hands on the UD Revolution Lipstick which I talked about in my Sephora Haul earlier this week.
I waited so long to buy this lipstick because I'm not usually a big lipstick person. I tend to stay away from lipsticks as I find them to be more high maintenance than gloss. Gloss isn't THAT obvious when it starts fading. Lipstick, especially darker colors, looks pretty rediculous when it fades and is more difficult to apply (you need a mirror whereas for a gloss you can pretty much re-apply blind).
I purchased the color Manic and I got the matching 24/7 lip liner. I had originally wanted a color that was more natural/nude but I just fell in love with this color at the store. Such a pretty wine/pink. Urban Decay says it's a "soft wine".
First of all the packaging is GORGEOUS! It's an almost pink tinted gunmetal package and closes very securely so there's no fear of the top popping off in your bag.
As others have stated, this lipstick is crazy pigmented. It goes on smoothly though feels pretty dry after it's applied. I took photos of my lips with just the liner, with the liner and lipstick, and then with a gloss on top.

I LOVE the color of this lipstick and it looks amazing with a little gloss on top! It's fairly long-lasting for me which means about 2 hours if I'm not eating or drinking.
I'd say this lipstick is worth it but since it's almost holiday time I bet there will be more specials at Sephora or Urban Decay so maybe wait for a sale to treat yourself. I'll probably try a nude shade if there's another sale.
Have a great day everyone!
