Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash

Lately I've fallen head-over-heels for Urban Decay.  Until recently I never looked twice when passing the stand in Debenhams, but now I just can't help myself.  As soon as I spotted this little beauty on Instagram I knew I wouldn't be able to resist and it definitely hasn't let me down!

The set contains six mini lip sticks and an invisible lip liner - three of which are exclusive new shades: Ladyflower (rosy pink), Crush (bright pink) and Illicit (sheer baby pink).  The other three are Liar (my perfect nude), F-Bomb (true red) and Gash (deep red).  These lipsticks are the true definition of creamy - they're comfortable to wear without being too slippery, highly pigmented and have good staying power. Before adding this to my collection, I had only tried the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Streak (which I love), but now I'm looking forward to adding even more to my collection.

The lip liner in Ozone holds lipstick in place and stops it bleeding.  It's invisibility means you can pair it with whatever colour you fancy.  Together, the Revolution lipsticks and the 24/7 lip pencil are a pretty long lasting pair.  

According to Urban Decay, "Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™ gives Revolution Lipstick its super creamy texture, insane pigmentation, superior colour dispersion and extended wear. Maxi-Lip™ defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller. And with a blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter".

There is a range of shades making sure you have something for every occasion - they are all wearable colours and I've already got lots of use out of every single one!  I've also found a few almost-dupes on my collection.  F-Bomb is a creamier version of MAC Ruby Woo, Gash is pretty similar to Rimmel's infamous 107 lipstick and illicit looks a lot like MAC Giddy.

I absolutely adore this little set - although each of the lipsticks are very small, they're ideal for throwing in your bag on-the-go and perfect for trying out new shades.  This full set cost me £25, whereas a full-size UD lipstick is £15.50 on it's own - the only downfall is that it was limited edition, so if you spot it anywhere I'd snap it up if I were you!
