Packaging:
The Matte Revolution Lipsticks come in sleek black tubes with subtle shimmer particles embedded within. The cap is etched with the UD logo and the tube has little divots all along its length. The packaging feels very sturdy with a nice luxurious weight to them.

Formulation:
All five shades below are super pigmented. The texture varies a bit depending on the shade but overall they apply smoothly and the wear is impressive.

Matte Tilt: A bright coral orange, this shade feels the most matte in that it's a bit drier and less creamy compared to the rest.
Matte Menace: This is a retina-singing hot pink. The formulation is most similar to Matte Tilt, it's very matte with that silicone-y feel but it's slightly creamier.
Matte After Dark: A deep fuschia with a slight iridescence, this shade has a smoother but still equally matte formulation.
Matte Black Mail: This is a super deep wine. The formulation is very creamy and pigmented but I experienced some patchiness due to the lipstick moving and transferring between my upper and lower lips. So this one should probably be used with a lip liner.
Matte 1993: A brown nude, this shade has a much smoother and creamier formulation compared to the rest of the shades. With that said, it still retains a nice matte finish.

Overall:
These are some really solid lipsticks. The finishes are very matte but there is some variation in the creaminess of each shade. Both the bright orange and hot pink are a tad drying but the nude and the dark wine are very rich and smooth.

Urban Decay is available in stores and online at Sephora and select Shoppers.
