REVIEW: Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash


Hey ladies!

I’m on an Urban Decay rampage as you can see, so please pardon me! But I guess with pretty pictures (of the swatches, not of me of course 😀 ) in place, no one would make a fuss right? That’s unless you’re not a lipstick fan but fret not, I have a blush review coming up!

So Sephora finally launched my long-awaited Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash last week! I’ve been yearning so darn long for it and I thought they were not going to release it in Singapore but I guess many people had been requesting for it on their Facebook page so they decided to bring it over anyway! I was so stoked!

The shades + proof of authenticity!

6 miniature Urban Decay lipsticks!

4 are new shades while the other 2 (Liar & F-Bomb) are from the permanent series!

About 3/4 of a full-size Revolution Lipstick – great for travels!

The bullet is so tiny (about 2 cm) and cute, and it’s probably the perfect size for me because I can hardly finish a lipstick.

Also comes with Urban Decay’s best selling clear-shade lip pencil, Ozone!

The lip pencil is one amazing tool to hold your colour in place! I lined my lips with Ozone before I put on the first lipstick from the stash and it really appeared neater than the rest (which I failed to line because I was tight on time). At the same time, it also evidently prevented feathering because the lipstick didn’t bleed out despite sweat dripping down from my cupid’s bow. On top of that, Urban Decay claims that the pencil fixes mistakes which I failed to experiment because I only read about it after I’m done with the photo-taking. Haha, maybe next time!

Plus, I really appreciate that it’s clear-shade because the downside of coloured lip liners are that they stay (which ironically is one attribute I seek in all lip products). After a few hours on days I pig out, the lipstick that filled the lips would wear off, leaving behind an unsightly line around the lips. And then I’d be force to touch up my lipstick every now and then :\ So thank God for Ozone, I think I have found a better alternative!

Full swatch. Layered Ozone multiple times but it’s still pretty invisible! What is your favourite shade from this stash?

As you can see, this collection offers a variety of shades from sheer to light to dark and vivid colours to cater to different moods and occasions. The lipsticks are all very pigmented and bold (with the exception of Illicit and nude-shade Liar). Their creamy texture glides on smoothly in one application.

Now, let’s do an individual review for every lipstick!

SAMSUNG CSC

Ladyflower is a bright rose-pink shade.

OK my face looks friggin’ puffy in this post because I binged a lot the past few days. Gotta get back to shape!

SAMSUNG CSC

Ladyflower looks like the perfect pink shade on my hand but when applied on my lips, it appears differently and seems to be more on the purple side.

SAMSUNG CSC

Crush is a hot pink shade. (whoops sorry for the poor quality!)

Crush is the ultimate hot pink, I tell ya. Just look at the bullet. It has this gold sheen in it which makes people want to reach out for it the first thing they uncap all the lipsticks in this stash. But strangely, there isn’t any sheen when applied! I wish it did though. I bet it’d look super gorgeous.

SAMSUNG CSC

No sheen no sheen! Just a flat colour 😦

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

But it actually looks quite nice! Me likey.

Here’s a comparison swatch against other similar shades from the regular-size Revolution Lipstick collection! Anarchy is really close, just a little darker than Crush.

SAMSUNG CSC

Gash is a deep red with tonal shimmer (gah sorry for the poor quality again)

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

My favourite shade from this stash! And I’m probably the only one who thinks this way because everyone seems to be raving about Crush and Ladyflower. Why not Gash? It’s so pretty with the sexy red wine colour.

If Shame is too dark for you, this should be perfect!

SAMSUNG CSC

Illicit is a sheer baby pink shade

SAMSUNG CSC

I honestly didn’t expect a sheer lipstick to be part of an Urban Decay lipstick collection since they are known for their bold and highly pigmented shades! I felt that it needed a lot of layering for the baby pink to show (otherwise it’d make no difference to my lips). Thus this is my least favourite among the 6 in the stash.

SAMSUNG CSC

Liar is a pinky-brown nude shade

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

I’ve always wanted to get Liar but it’s always sold out at the Sephora outlet I patronise so I’m really glad that it’s included in this collection! It appears to be dark (made me elated for a moment) but when applied on my lips, it kinda blended into my natural lip colour. It also felt more matte than the rest (but still glossy nonetheless).

SAMSUNG CSC

Comparing against other nude shades from the Revolution Lipstick series!

SAMSUNG CSC

F-Bomb is a classic red shade

I already own the full-size version of this so I know that this is the go-to red lipstick. It’s a very attractive and sultry red. Unlike MAC, this is more hydrating and it stays on the entire day even after a heavy meal (just need minimal touch up). So if you’re a red lipstick lover, this is a must-buy! Or if you wanna try it out first, perhaps you should get the Full Frontal Lipstick Stash 😀

All in all, it was money well-spent! I now have one less bulky item to bring along when I travel (and I’m definitely taking Gash with me hehe). Plus, Christmas is around the corner right? This makes the PERFECT Christmas gift for your girlfriends!

Or if you don’t believe in spending a lot of money on Christmas presents, get one for yourself! For 6 gorgeous lipsticks, you only need to pay S$60 in local Sephora stores (US$39 on Urban Decay) and the price could even be lower if you pay using your UOB Visa Card (3% rebate) on top of your 10% discount (for accumulating 250 points)!  I only had to pay S$52 in the end 😀 That’s $8 off!

Also once again, this stash is limited edition! So if you miss it, you’re probably gonna miss out on a great deal!

Haha okay enough of the aggressive promotion (because I really love the product!). That’s all for this post!

Thanks for reading ❤
