Looking for a gloss that’s high shine, hydrating, and NOT sticky? Then you will love the new Hi-Fi Shine lip glosses from Urban Decay. I’ve got all twenty shades to talk about, so hide your wallets. You’ll want them all!
URBAN DECAY HI-FI- SHINE
Described as a “cushion gloss,” this ultra shiny formula promises to deliver lasting color with a comfortable finish. The shade range has everything from soft nude, to chocolate brown, and there’s even a shimmery gold. As for the finish, you’ve got four to choose from: Cream, Sheer Cream, Holographic, and Metallized.
Formulated with hydrating vitamin E and peppermint oil, this comfy gloss is meant to leave lips plumped, nourished, and smelling like yummy vanilla mint – seriously, these babies smell so good! In addition, Urban Decay promises the formula won’t feather or bleed, so you can apply and be worry free. Each shade retails for $20, and can be purchased at Sephora, ULTA, or wherever Urban Decay is sold.
PACKAGING & APPLICATOR
Unlike most glosses, which are in round tubes, the Hi-Fi Shines come in a flat container that’s meant to fit in your pocket. It’s modern and sleek, and easy to spot in your collection (since it looks like nothing else). As for the actual applicators, they are a great size, and again a little flat, so they are easy to use. Here’s what Urban Decay has to say:
The flexible, flocked-silicone paddle applicator is the newest technology, and allows you to swipe on a generous, even layer of gloss. No need to double dip.“
As a self-proclaimed lipgloss addict, I have tried a ton of formulas, but only have a handful of favorites (Buxom being my fav of all time). So, when it came time to test drive these I wasn’t expecting to find a new holy grail. But, these glosses are amazing!
The texture is creamy, and really easy to apply. The shimmers aren’t gritty, and the creams are a dream to wear. You won’t get overly saturated color with the metallics, but they look stunning paired over a lipstick (or even one of the cream glosses). Naturally, I adore the more nude shades, but the bold shimmers are the perfect topper for spring and summer. If you love the sweet minty scent of Buxom glosses, these smell very similar. Honestly, the scent totally seals the deal for me. It’s heavenly!
I separated the swatches by finish, but I really couldn’t tell which was holographic and which was metallized. So, I put all the shimmers together, and all the creams. I hope that helps!
