This and 69 are my two very favorite reds. F-Bomb feels great from first swipe until it's off my lips- it is moisturizing and creamy. I think the reviewers that don't like the texture probably trend toward mattes which is a formula I do not like. I prefer MAC Satins- something that isn't drying. I love this lipstick because I'm a low maintenance makeup gal- I use lip liner and then one swipe and I'm ready to go. I'm not the type to use a brush or "build up" color.... I simply like swipe and go makeup. This is full-punch color in a creamy texture and I love it. I reach for F-Bomb when I want a more neutral to ever so SO slightly orange (I hesitate to type that as I hate orange reds and would pass by this review if I saw it- I'm talking super-slight) and I reach for 69 when I want it slightly blue-er.
I hope this helps- it's an excellent shade and excellent formulation. I haven't tried it in the Vice line but glad they kept the shade.

This is the ONLY red lipstick that doesn't look orange on me. It is the most beautiful shade or red and can be worn anytime! I tried about 15 different red lipsticks at different counters, MAC Estée Lauder Lancôme etc and Urban Decay has the absolute best shade

This is possibly the prettiest and sexiest red lipstick I own! I grabbed it while it was on sale to make way for the vice lipsticks coming out (glad they're keeping the shade) and bf even likes it! I can't wait to own the shade in the vice packaging when I run out of my current packaging of it.

This is my favorite red lipstick (my skin is pale with a neutral warm undertone). It has a nice satin/cream finish that feels moisturizing on the lips. While it does transfer, the color and finish left behind look almost exactly the same as they did when first applied, except for some rubbing off in the center and inner corners after some eating and drinking. I do have two qualms: it does bleed and therefore requires a lip liner, and also if it isn't very thoroughly blotted before reapplying it will ball up and feel kind of sticky.

Being a lover of lipstick and anything to do with coloring in lips, I jumped at the chance to get this, despite the high price. It's just the brand right? That's what I thought. It's just Urban Decay and the name is what I'm paying for, but hey with a good brand I should get quality. And I did, but with the cons that come with it (as everything has cons) for some people it might not be worth that price.

The color is beautiful, making my lips pop and giving it just the right amount of shine without it looking cheap or like a lip gloss. It's an actual lipstick, not a gloss, and no matte. The application is super even, no faded or bald spots showing on your lips, it covers everything up so fully that you don't even need two applications. If you're tired of lipsticks that still show your natural lips even after your application, then this should be your next buy.

It smudges easily though, I'd not say its liquidy but it doesn't dry. A lip liner would be recommended with it as it can smudge easily by even hair flying into your face or eating smth, though eating carefully may prevent this. It doesn't fade with speaking though, I can have a whole conversation then look in the mirror and see no pale line between my lips. The smudging is still a problem though.

The worst problem with this though, is the shape of the lipstick itself. I have so much trouble actually applying it. It's difficult to reach the cupid bows and the sides on top, and on the bottom in the corners it's difficult to fill those in without pretty much sticking half the lipstick into my mouth. It has no tip, its an odd oval shape. Good for lining the bottom lip but its not exactly liquidy enough to smack onto the top lips. The shape isn't very good for the sides, and proves to be an object of frustration upon every application. Give yourself time when applying it, it might take a while.

Pros:
1. The lipstick itself is very light and thin, and wont clump and doesnt require putting it on thickly.
2. No fading between the lips
3. Only one application needed
4. Nice vibrant color

Cons:
1. Unusual and hard to handle shape
2. Smudges easily

I've had MAC Russian Red for years. I've had every drugstore red liquid lipstick you could think of. I was searching for that amazing creamy texture, weightless feel, and the perfect shade to match my coloring. While Russian Red came close to being what I wanted it doesn't hold a candle to F-Bomb.

Creamy, long wearing, and an amazing shade to match my pale skin and dark coloring. For the first time I get why red lips are so sexy. This shade makes me feel like some sexy pinup girl or vamp. It is such a bloody red color.

I do have trouble applying red lipstick in general, I always smear it on my face, but I am not the biggest fan of the shape of the bullet. I wish it was like the CT K.I.S.S.I.N.G line where the head almost acts as a lip brush, so much easier, but will gladly pick up a brush for this color.

Yes, it is dry upon first slide across the lips. But somehow as soon as it is on it transforms into a creamy and gel like look on the lips without being overly shiny. Yesterday I wore this shade from 10 am to 4 pm when I had to take it off because I was going to the gym. It was going extremely strong at that point.

All in all a fantastic product and formula.

I'm amassing a small collection of reds, and F Bomb is amongst that collection.

Urban Decay had a package deal going, called The Ultimate Pair, which included a full size lipstick and lip liner to match. I had some extra cash to burn, and I was already impressed with Jilted, so I decided that I would grab a tube for the hell of it.

Color wise, I would say that this is pretty close dupe to MAC's Ruby Woo (albeit a tad bit darker and a little bloodier), so if you didn't like the texture of Ruby Woo, this would be an excellent alternative.

And, like Jilted, it was creamy, and lasted for quite a long time.

Amazing colour, highly pigmented, all day staying power (I only reapplied once between 8:30 and 18:00 to fill in edges where I'd eaten), lips feel so smooth afterwards. Fantastic.

This is a beautiful mid-range deep red lipstick but it feels incredibly uncomfortable on the lips. The color definitely is long-wearing but it certainly isn't moisturizing. It emphasized lines I didn't know existed and I definitely applied a slight touch of conditioning lip balm before application of this lipstick. I definitely won't repurchase.

Like some, I received a mini-sized version of this lipstick from Sephora. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it! The color can best be described as a perfect deep, blood-red (blue with warm undertones). The coverage is excellent, and the finish is neither glossy nor matte. I have full lips, and I tend to apply it directly from the tube - around the perimeter of my lips, and then I smudge it inward. This technique almost creates an ombr effect, which I love! Tip: This hue works well with Kat Von D's monarch eye shadow palette.

This is the first Urban Decay product that I've tried, but F-bomb makes me want to explore the line.
