Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Gloss | Review + Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Liar

Hey Beauties...
You may know, or have guessed, by now that I have a slight addiction to Urban Decay. Especially their 'Naked' line. So when I heard they were bringing out 'Naked' Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss I know I just had to get my hands on them. I'm not usually a gloss girl, I find them too sticky personally so I was a little hesitant at first with these but the more reviews I read the more I fell in-love with them!

The  'Naked' Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss is not only the latest addition to the 'Naked' line but also to Urban Decays wonderful Lip products. This range of Gloss are designed to compliment and look gorgeous even with the most hardcore UD smoky eye, as well as adding something a little extra special on a stunning everyday neutral look, making lips look dangerously kissable.

There are 9 shades in the collection which are:
- Beso
- Freestyle
- Liar
- Lovechild
- Naked
- Nooner
- Streak
- Rule34
- Walk Of Shame

Urban Decay say:
"Even  the firmly gloss adverse will become hardcore addicts when they try Naked Lipgloss. Like a luxe balm and a rich gloss in one, it's laced with ingredients that are good for your skin"

When I saw this product I instantly fell in-love with the packaging! It's sleek and elegant with an edge, the metallised tubing really reminds me of the Naked2 and Naked3 palettes. I love the 'Naked' cut out effect which I think really gives it that signature UD edge. There is also a little 'window' at the bottom of these Lipgloss giving you perfect view of the product inside, making it super easy to pick out the right shade from inside your bag. Also lets you see the true colour of the shade before you purchase without having to open or guess by the labels.

I must admit it was tough for me to decide on a colour as they are all gorgeous, but after half an hour, a change of shops and a good hand full of swatches, (I'm very indecisive ok! haha!) I finally decided on the shade 'Liar' which is a gorgeous soft pink-mauve colour. I was torn between this shade and lovechild but I wanted something a little different then my usual pink.

The Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss have an extra long, flocked paddle applicator which picks up a generous amount of product and applies it smoothly to the lips with absolutely no fuss and no need to keep dipping the brush back in. I have to say this is my favourite type of applicator and really applied beautifully to the lips no matter what size or shape lips you have (I have small lips) As you can see these are a medium-sheer coverage with a good amount of colour pay off. 

Having a firm dislike to gloss due to the tacky and stickiness of them, I completely agree with Urban Decay and have to say I absolutely love these! They are definitely not sticky or tacky AT ALL! However like a normal balm you hair will still get stuck in them if you wear you hair down on a windy day. They glide on beautifully and feel just like a luxe balm. They are extremely nourishing and leave my lips feeling super soft and hydrated, even on days where my lips feel a little sore n dry. The lasting power of these are pretty impressive too I have to say, they feel of the gloss/balm last at least 8 hours, the colour on the other hand id say lasts about 6-8. They have a slight minty scent to them, which does remind me of the UD Lip Junkies, but no way near as strong.

Overall I am totally addicted to these and have been using this pretty much every day or every other day at least, since I bought it. I also feel that they sit really nicely on top of a light lip colour. They just feel amazing on and really do keep your lips hydrated and nourished. I have noticed a huge improvement in the softness of my lips even on days I don't wear this Lipgloss.

Have you tried these Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss before? What's your favourite shade? I'm definitely looking to pick up Lovechild next.
