When I first saw the announcement that Urban Decay was bringing out lipsticks I was so damn stoked that I cant put it in words. After I saw their presentation vid I was left drooling and wanting more. Just had to get my hands on one! I searched some shopping sites but the soaring dollar rates had me literally crying so pointless to say I didn’t buy anything. My elder sis who lives in US asked me what I wanted for my birthday and this was probably the first thing I told her apart from the palettes. Honestly she has a huge list of what all I want from there which is probably a mile long. I was not expecting that she would send it over through someone and I will be able to hold this baby in my hand so soon.

Right now I’m more excited about having this than the two famous iconic palettes from the brand. Apparently UD used to do lipsticks earlier but this is a revamped more grown up version of its predecessor. From the packing to the formulation everything has gone a complete over haul. So enough of babbling….lets dive into the glorious thing.
The tube is about 2 inches tall and has a metal finish body. The UD logo and name have been embossed on the cap and the entire thing has this interesting design on it…all valleys and bumps. When you pop the cap you come face to face with the bright purple metal body inside which is just so chic. Catfight is a fuchsia color….a pinkish red if you will with a hint of sheen. There is no fragrance or flavor to it and an absence of glitter/shimmer. The pigmentation is just so intense! One swipe if all you need and you get full rich coverage.
I have dry lips so I felt this to be neither moisturizing nor drying. If I had used a balm underneath this would have been more comfortable but even on its own it was not bad. It gives you a very pretty creamy looking finish. After a session of eating/drinking the color fades slightly and that too only from the bottom lip a tad which gets taken care of by a little smacking of the lips. This lasts for a long time on and I had it on for more than 6 hours. Obviously it does not look as bright as before but what I really like is that it does not leave your lips completely n~de. Since I have pigmented lips such a thing becomes more of an issue for me and hence something that comes to my attention.
But even after over 6 hours of wear I could barely make out the pigmentation of my lips. So to put it shortly it does not come off unless you take it off. UD promises you insane color payoff and they deliver on it fully! Honestly I would recommend this for the pigmentation alone. Plus they don’t feather or bleed a bit….just stay where you leave em. I’m not in a habit of using separate lip pencils and usually use the tip of the lippy as the liner. I already have a couple of colors lined up to add to the list that my sister has 😀 There are 22 shades to indulge in and apparently all are super pigmented even the lighter tones….For $22 (approx Rs. 1397/-) for 2.8 gms of product they are worth their price.
In the words of Joey….Packing – Good! Color – Good! Pigmentation – Good! Lasting power – Gooood! Do try to get your hands on these if you are a lipstick lover. I assure you that you wont regret it one bit! Are you game to give it a go? Have you already tried one? Let me know what you think. Asta-la-vista!
Would you purchase Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Catfight again? – Though I really like the color I would prefer to try out the other shades from the brand for sake of variety.
Would you recommend Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Catfight to your friend? – Un…no. I want it all for myself! Preciousssss. Lol ok that was my goofy for the day. I would absolutely recommend it!
