I am really excited to write this review, in fact I’m so excited that I would let the pictures do most of the ‘talking’. There are just no words to describe how impressed I am with these offerings from Urban Decay but trust me, they are very good.

I received a sample of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil in shade Ozone with two samples of Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss in shades Failbait and Bittersweet in my ipsy May Glam bag (reviewed here). On first glance, I must admit that I was disappointed to receive lip gloss because I am not a fan of them however, that soon changed after using it for the first time.

The mini sample that I received from ipsy May Glam bag
No swatches for this as it’s transparent


Freshly applied at 10.30am

At 4.30pm (no touch up with eating, snacking and drinking)
At 7.30pm (no touch up and after dinner)

Ozone is a transparent lip pencil that is meant to prime the lips before your usual lipstick application and it does a great job in preventing feathering and smoothing out my lips lines. My lips felt moisturized the whole day and I can easily use this lip pencil without having to apply lip balm beforehand.

Bittersweet looks scary in the sample but when applied, it’s a gorgeous purple with a slight pink in it and it’s my favourite out of the two samples that I received. It lasted well on me and slowly faded into a stain while leaving my lips feeling moisturized. Not once I had to apply lip balm, amazing!


Failbait is a soft nude pink however, I find it to be slightly pale for me. Strange as I expected it to be the perfect nude shade for me but instead it made me look ill. Failbait also failed to last as long as Bittersweet as I need to reapply every 4 hours and doesn’t fade into a stain but I think that’s generally the downfall with lighter shades.

Both lip glosses have a thick almost gel like texture, opaque and thank gawdddd, they are not sticky. They felt very moisturizing throughout wear time and not once my lips felt dry and uncomfortable. I also didn’t detect any taste or scent in both so thumbs up to Urban Decay for that.

I am so impressed by these lip glosses that I am planning to purchase full size soon. They are the most comfortable, long lasting even without the lip liner and hydrating lip glosses that I have ever tried. Be warned that I have read some reviews stating the wand in the full size product causes splotchy application so thought I would give you a fair warning on that.

I highly recommend to check Urban Decay lip gloss out however, while I like Ozone I don’t consider it to be a must buy. If you’re budget conscious then opt for the drugstore option and I know for a fact Rimmel has a transparent lip liner. I have the one from Rimmel and if you want me to do a comparison post between both then please let me know in the comment below.

Have you tried Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss? Are you a fan of lip gloss in general?
