Damn, this lipstick is GORGEOUS!! I'm a red lipstick fanatic and I've had Urban Decay's Revolution reds on my wish list forever. Finally, I had a 20% off rewards coupon for Ulta and I decided to use it to buy Mrs. Mia Wallace, F-Bomb and Shame. Shame scared me a bit at first, but it got such fantastic reviews, I knew I had to try it. I've worn it as a stain and full-on and both ways it is gorgeous. It also has fantastic staying power (since it basically wears down to a stain). I *love* it! It's a gorgeous color for fall! EDIT: I understand why Temptalia had issues with this lipstick. I found that in order to have the color apply evenly, I had to exfoliate my lips with a sugar scrub first. However, I end up doing this with most pigmented lipsticks and the color is worth a little extra work imho!
I've wanted Shame ever since Urban Decay launched the Revolution lipstick line last year. I finally caved and treated myself to it this past weekend, and I'm very happy with my choice.
The color is a gorgeous, rich dark red. It's an excellent pick if you love a vampy red lipstick. I'm sure that you could sheer it out with a lip brush if you wanted to and it would look great, but I've been applying it straight from the tube and enjoying it that way. I love how dramatic the color is. It stays in place very well throughout the day, too. I think we can all agree that there are few beauty problems more annoying than an otherwise gorgeous lipstick feathering or bleeding outside of the lip line. I purposely wore Shame a few days in a row with no lip liner or primer, and I experienced no feathering or smearing.
The formula of the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks is as good as every beauty blog says it is. It's rich and creamy without being slippery -- think a Revlon Lip Butter with a bit more grip. Shame stays on pretty well for me during the day. It's probably my longest-wearing non-matte lipstick. I did have to touch up a bit after eating a meal, but I definitely didn't feel like I was constantly reapplying during the day. And because the formula is so awesome, the application is great, no tugging on lips or drying them out. UD's packaging and site say that the Revolution lipsticks contain several moisturizing ingredients. I do notice that my lips, which are constantly dry and flaky, feel lightly moisturized during the day when wearing Shame, and that when I take the lipstick off at the end of the day, my lips aren't chapped.
Even the packaging is amazing. The sleek gunmetal tube is pretty in its own right, and the lid clicks securely into place. I can tell that I won't need to worry about it coming off in my purse and making a mess.
I put off buying Shame for a couple of reasons: the hefty price tag, and the review on Temptalia, which was pretty disappointing. I'm really glad that I checked out the reviews here and changed my mind, because I couldn't be happier with it! It's definitely a great splurge item to add to your collection if you love a bold, showstopping dark red.
A higher quality dupe of my (previous?) go-to lipstick, Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Bordeaux. Literally the only difference (besides Shame's smoother application) is that Bordeaux has a more cream/matte finish. Love the tube, very pretty and feels substantional. It would be perfect if it came in a teardrop shape instead of the round stick. I have to apply it with a brush.
For such a dark color, it's worth the splurge. I wear it over the Urban Decay lipliner in Ozone (clear) and it stays looking fresh and perfect for at least 2 hours without food or drink. It applies and wears like a dream, and doesn't dry the lips out at all. The packaging itself is heavy (not overly, just feels quality), understated, and gorgeous. I've tried Revlon's Black Cherry, which is supposed to be one of the most high-rated dark drugstore lipsticks, but it simply doesn't compare to this one as far as application, wear, packaging, etc. Must buy! And the other shades as well!
This lipstick is the absolute perfect shade I've been looking for. It's very versatile colour wise, if lightly applied, it can be a very intense berry colour and if applied a little more layed, it's a perfect dark and vampy shade. The application is a bit splotchy so I recommend using a brush to apply it. It's very good for long wear and has a lovely texture that doesn't dry out lips over time. Definitely a must have.
LOVE this shade. It's a beautiful berry colour that is perfect for Fall. The lipstick is very pigmented and the formula isn't overly drying, especially if you top it off with a gloss. Just beautiful!
I love this shade....picked up the last one at my store...cause i already own 6 others of the shades, now it completes my collection of these...i love all my colors and this one is so vamp and naughty! my second fav is firebomb, then bang, anarchy etc. if anyone cant get this one for some reason of sell outs...a wonderfull full dupe is : CARGO lipstick in NAPA......exact dupe..i have that too.. love this!
I was a little apprehensive about purchasing this after reading the review on Temptalia, but it was the exact shade I've been searching for and I've never had trouble with UD's lipsticks. Thankfully, I think Temptalia's review was a bit misguided, because this is a gorgeous, smooth-wearing lipstick. The color is absolutely perfect for fall/winter and suits my pale complexion perfectly. I didn't have any issues with the application, but my lips are always moisturized and exfoliated, so I couldn't comment on any flake-clinging issues. So far I am loving it!
Man, I love me a vampy lip in the fall/winter, and this is it! One of the MAs at Sephora had on this gorgeous shade, and upon asking what it was, she led me to this. The pigmentation is awesome, and it feels very smooth going on. I wouldn't call it moisturizing, but it definitely isn't drying. I would advise others to exfoliate prior to applying, as it does cling to flakes, but that's kind of a given. I was also a bit wary when I saw the bullet, because it has shimmer in it and I'm not really into shimmery lips (I have very full lips, so especially with bold colours it looks overwhelming), but it doesn't really translate onto the lips - it just adds dimension. It lasts fairly well, though I did need to touch up after heavy eating/drinking. I didn't experience any feathering.
Overall, this is probably one of my favourite lipsticks I've ever owned, and it's 100% worth the price.
I just received this lipstick from UD yesterday. I am glad I purchased despite Temptalia's negative review. The pigmentation is amazing. 1 swipe and I get full color. I was in disbelieve. I definitely want more of these. The color is a beautiful deep Red with a shine. It feels like a balm.
