Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick 'After Dark'

Every now and then I treat myself to a lipstick that needs to be talk about in its own blog post because it's a love from the first swatch ( check my posts here and here). Today's the day to introduce you to my newest lipstick obsession, the Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade After Dark.
One day I was casually browsing beauty websites (as you do) and came across Urban Decay lipsticks, my attention got the new matte range, and particularly that one shade, perfect for Autumn which is right upon us. And before I knew it my order was confirmed and the new lipstick was on the way. I love dark, vampy lips for this time of the year!

It's my first Urban Decay lipstick and I really like the packaging, sleek and elegant but also with a bit of fun element. The plastic is high quality and the lipstick feels quite weighty, you definitely get what you pay for it. And talking about price, I was actually pleasantly surprised that it was £15.50 as I always thought that UD lipsticks were more expensive.

'After Dark' is a beautiful medium dark berry shade with purple iridescent micro sparkles which make the colour very unique and different from what I have in my collection. It looks purple or berry depending on the light. The finish is not completely matte, rather velvety satin which I love as I'm not the biggest fan of utterly matte lipsticks. It applies beautifully without dragging the skin, almost like a balm. The pigmentation is insane and you get a full-on colour with one swipe. The lipstick doesn't settle in any lip lines and it doesn't accentuate dry skin. The formula is not overly moisturising, even though it feels like it is in the first minutes, but not drying either, I'd say, just comfortable to wear.

The wear time is really good, I can easily go without re-applying the lipstick for 5-6 hours with drinks and snacks in the meantime. The lipstick transfers slightly to cups, etc. but the formula is so rich in pigment that your lips are still covered in colour, even after several drinks, only with a minimal wear off in the middle. Lipstick leaves a stain behind which is always good and reassuring if you have no time to re-apply it.

As it's a very bold shade I'd use a lip liner with it just to be on the safe side. Having said that I have worn this lipstick without one and it doesn't smudge and feathers just very minimal after a few hours of wearing it.

I love this shade and the formula of the Matte Revolution Lipstick is fantastic! I think I will need to try the original version as well. I'm already hooked and undoubtedly will add more UD lipsticks to my collection.
Have you tried Urban Decay lipsticks?
