Revolution High-Color Lipgloss is Urban Decay's follow up to its popular Revolution line of lipsticks, and we're happy to report that it's a winner!
First, though, let's get to some of the claims surrounding this gloss. The formula contains "Hilurlip," which Urban Decay says can make lips appear plumper and fuller. Hilurlip is a trademarked combination of ingredients that includes sodium hyaluronate, which can indeed serve to plump skin, but Urban Decay's description of this gloss being "laced with" it is accurate. There just isn't enough in this formula to make a significant impact on lip lines.
That aside, Revolution High-Color Lipgloss is an excellent option for other reasons. It's packed with color—you can get full, opaque coverage with just a single coat. Most of the shades are bold reds, pinks or purples, though there are a couple of neutral options included. This has a high-shine finish, and if you want a little extra dimension, there are a handful of sparkle shades as well (Vice, Big Bang and Assassin all include shimmer).
Where this gloss really "shines" (pun intended), however, is in the way it feels while you're wearing it. It's remarkably smooth and moisturizing, and is comfortable – almost plush – during its entire wear time, which averages four hours. Even after it fades, lips are left feeling smoother and conditioned, and it leaves an attractive stain behind.
The sole fragrance ingredient included is small amount of vanilla, which is not an irritant; in fact, you can't even detect a scent or flavor.
Overall, if you want a bold lip gloss that will leave your lips feeling smoother and conditioned, Revolution High-Color Lipgloss is an excellent option to check out.
