When I found out Urban Decay were releasing a range of Naked lipglosses, I was beyond happy – I don’t know anyone who loves a nude lip like I do!
Packaged in some glitzy rose-gold tubes, the glosses don’t look like anything else in my stash, and they are super easy to find in the dark recesses of my bag. The range contains 9 glosses which range from a darkish plum (Beso) through to a variety of pinky-nudes. I have three of the gorgeous shades to try. All the formulas are sheer (this is a Naked range after all), and instead of feeling heavy or greasy, all three feel more like a balm when on the lips. The glosses are meant to plump up your lips as well as hydrate them – I’ve not had them long enough to test the claims, but I did feel a little ‘pouty’ when wearing them! All three wear for about 2 hours on me, and none felt gritty or greasy.
First up is Naked, a light pink based bronze with gold shimmer.
The gloss looks much deeper in the tube than it does on the lips thanks to how sheer the formula is. The glitter isn’t too much, but just lifts the gloss, making it feel pretty, but still natural on the lip.
Walk of Shame is a deeper nude gloss, which again has tiny shimmer particles in it.
Again, it’s very sheer, but it is super flattering.
Last up is Liar, which Urban Decay describes as a soft mauve-pink.
This one is probably the most opaque formula of the three, and it’s just the most stunning colour. If, like me, you’re a little scared of wearing a bright lip, this is a gorgeously subtle way of updating your day look.
The glosses launch tomorrow and will cost £14 each. US readers can find them here
