When it comes to makeup I personally love it when a celebrity or style icon puts their name to a product; In my mind it makes me feel that I'm steeling their personal style secrets and can inject a bit of their beauty into my life. With lipsticks being my favourite item of makeup, you can imagine my excitement when Urban Decay partnered up with Gwen Stefani and brought out a range of lipsticks and lip liners. I think it goes without saying that Gwen Stefani is the queen of the red lip, so I just knew this collection was going to have some breathtaking shades of red.
The Gwen Stefani lipstick collection has six different shades to choose from which range from bright bold reds to vibrant deep pinks; there is nothing subtle about the collection at all which I love as I fully support a bold statement lip. I just knew that if I was going to choose any colour lipstick from this collection it had to be a red shade and after much debating I chose the shade 'Spiderweb'.
Firstly I personally think that 'Spiderweb' is a really fun, vibrant red shade, its beautifully bright and has a slight pink/blue undertone to it, so it makes your teeth look really white. I picked it because to me its just that classic Gwen Stefani red. Not only is the colour amazing, but the formulation of this lipstick is spot on; Urban Decay have really hit the nail on the head here.
What I really love about this lipstick and its formula is just how creamy it is; It literally glides across my lips with ease and feels so moisturising making it lovely to wear. This lipstick also has a satin finish, which really helps make my lips to look full and plump. Usually I find that only matte lipsticks have such an opaque finish to them, but this one is so rich in colour; I've never used a cream lipstick is pigmented like this. The only downside to this lipstick being so creamy and so pigmented is that it can bleed a little, but its nothing that a bit of lip liner won't fix.
As a lot of you also know, I'm a complete sucker for good packaging and this lipstick ticks all of the right boxes in that department. I love the sleek black design of the tubing with the gold design printed over the top. It's just one of those lipsticks you just want to take out of your makeup bag just so you can show it off to everyone!
I'm completely obsessed with this lipstick, everything about it is just perfect. If you're a fan of bright red lipsticks then I can't recommend this one enough; I got mine from House of Fraser and you can find 'Spiderweb' and the others in the collection here.
Have you tried anything from the Gwen Stefani range from Urban Decay? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
