Swatches: Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks in Bang and Lovelight, + 24/7 lip liners in Bang and Naked 2

Time for some more Urban Decay lipstick swatches! We previously showed you the vamp-tastic plum shade Shame and the workday pink Turn On, accompanied by their respective lipliners, Manic and Venom.

Today I'm swatching Bang, a kapow-bright orange-red, and Lovelight, a neutral with shimmer.

Packaging... the pencils are standard 24/7 format, but unlike the eye pencils, the lids and ends are greyish and matte, distinguishing them from the eyeliner versions when the two are mixed up in your pencil pot.

The lipsticks come in subtly textured high-shine gunmetal tubes. The bullets have a slanted, flat top, which as Gemma noted, makes them slighty more tricky to apply than the standard shaped bullet.

The new lipsticks replace the old style with the dagger-top handles, and thankfully, they've corrected the problematic bitter taste the old lipsticks had. The packaging is a bit more practical too - no more spiky dagger ends to tear the inner lining of your handbag. However, the embossed bullet has been lost too. Here's how they used to look:

Here's Naked 2 24/7 lip pencil. It's a classic matte YLLB (your lips but better) shade.

And here's Lovelight, worn on top. It's creamy with a hint of shimmer. Medium weight, not too drying. I picked this because it reminded me of Scratch, my old favourite UD lipstick. It's not an exact dupe, but it captures the same spirit of neutral colour + shimmer.

Bang 24/7 lip pencil. Lovely matte orange red. Just the right blend of waxy hold and smooth creaminess. I could imagine wearing this alone as a matte lip colour.

And with Bang lipstick on top. This is a creme finish, no shimmer, but plenty of shine.

The new Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks cost £15 each. The lip liners cost £13.
