Review: Urban Decay Iconic Lipstick in Indecent

Hello snowballs :)

I received this from the lovely Ashlie when I won one of her giveaways recently. I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to Urban Decay, so it was nice to have the chance to try another of their products.


Urban Decay sayLeaving no shade unturned, our huge assortment of colours and textures tempt you to stray from an otherwise predicable palette. The luxuriously creamy formula nourishes and protects lips with Vitamins A, C, and E. Hyaluronic Spheres (found naturally in the body) are added to stimulate cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill-in lines and wrinkles-now, how many Lipsticks can do that?!  

I say: Well they certainly got the iconic part right didn't they? I've never seen a lipstick packaged in such a distinctive way. Interesting, but I find the sword handle a little odd. Moving on from the packaging, Indecent is a pale peach shade which is absolutely gorgeous. I found it to be a lovely and creamy and quite a sheer, but buildable shade. According to the Boots website, Urban Decay lipsticks are also Paraben free :)


Urban Decay sayUrban Decay Iconic Lipstick has a creamy high tech formula which will glide on, nourish and protect lips with antioxidant-rich vitamin A, C and E.The teardrop-shape bullet (etched with an Urban Decay logo) is infused with a decadent crème caramel scent and flavour. Yum.

I say: One thing I will pick at here, is that when they said creamy, I wasn't bargaining on the shimmer I saw in the bullet to be actual glitter. And unfortunately you can feel this on the lips. But that's nothing that a clear gloss can't fix ;) Overall I found the lipstick to be creamy and non-drying. I love the shape of the bullet, it's brilliant for precise application. Indecent is a a pretty nudey peach colour which I really really like. Oh and the scent. Wow. I thought MAC had it nailed with their lipsticks, but I have to say Urban Decay has picked a good one!

  1. now that is one thing I have yet to try from Urban Decay, I am totally tempted to now, I have heard and seen a lot more reviews and raves about their Naked lipstick but like I said I haven't currently got lipsticks from these I am a total Mac Lippie lover but I think I need to venture to the loveliness that is Urban Decay hehe

    great review!

  2. It's always nice to try something new isn't it? I'm looking forward to seeing their other lippie shades! Thank you xx

  3. I love the UD Iconic lipstick in Tease, it's a gorgeous pink colour that's bright but still very wearable. Suits most skin tones as well. :) xx

  4. Oo thanks for the recommendation :) xx

  5. I love your snowflakes haha!
    I have a really tiny Urban Decay lipstick which I really like - i never really get chance to look at their other lipsticks though as their stand is always really hidden in Boots. I'm going to have a look at some of other colours on their website now :) xx

  6. Hehe thanks Caz, I thought it was a nice festive touch :D I always forget about Urban Decay because we only have them in Debenhams and I rarely go in there unless it's sale time lol. Cool beans, let me know if you get anything :) xx
