REVIEW: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in "F-Bomb"

I am a self confessed lipstick junkie so it may come as no surprise that today I have yet another review on one for you! Today, we're looking an Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the shade F-Bomb.

Price: £15.50
Where to Buy it From: UrbanDecay.com

I've reviewed this range of lipsticks before from Urban Decay - the lipsticks in it are specifically formulated to give you intense colour payoff but with a creamy and shiny finish. They claim to be made for extensive wear as well to contain ingredients that help to nourish the lips and make them seem plumper and fuller!


As with most Urban Decay packaging, this lipstick oozes that feeling of sophistication and high end quality that you'd expect for the price your paying. I love the gunmetal grey of the lipstick tube and the way "Urban Decay" is embossed on it - the packaging really does feel and look like a high end product which is exactly what I would want it to.

Colour and Pigmentation:

The shade that I got this lipstick in was "F-Bomb" - great name, huh? It's described as the "classic red" and I'd say that's pretty spot on to be honest. 
F-Bomb is warm/neutral medium red that when swatched and in the tube looks more cool-toned. On the lips and depending on your skin colour, it can however appear a little warmer. For me, it's pretty much that classic, Hollywood red with a slight cool undertone and I love it!

This lipstick is insanely pigmented, one swipe and you have intense colour payoff - this is the same with the other Revolution lipsticks that I own. The colour spreads evenly on the lips and you aren't going to need more than one coat to get a perfect coverage, 

Formula and Application / Wear:

In terms of formula, this lipstick feels creamy and smooth on the lips. It spreads easily and feels pretty light on. It has a shiny finish (not lip gloss shiny, just a nice creamy shine) and it's comfortable to wear throughout the day.

Now, in terms of wear time, this lipstick really lasts all day - as it's so richly pigmented it does leave a slight stain to the lips as well - so when it does eventually wear, you aren't going to notice it too much. For me, it can last a good 8 hours and even then, you probably won't need to re-apply if you didn't want to. This for me is one of the most impressive things about this lipstick - most of the time you'll have to wear a matte lipstick to get that kind of wear time but this is far from a matte finish and it lasts for ages.

Overall, I'm really impressed with the lipstick which doesn't surprise me as I'm a huge fan of the Revolution range from Urban Decay. This lipstick is luxurious in both its feel and appearance and this shade in particular is that perfect, Hollywood red that'll make you feel like a star. 
I'd definitely recommend this collection and this particular lipstick - you won't regret it. The price range of this lipstick is similar to one from MAC and so though it's still definitely higher end, it's still on the lower end of the overall price scale for this kind of brand. If you fancy treating yourself to a higher end lipstick, this is one I'd totally look into!
