Review: Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Firebird


The Colour: Fuchsia pink

The Price: £16.00 / $18.00 3ml

The Stockist: urbandecay.co.uk / urbandecay.com

The Application: Firebird applies effortlessly and evenly - with no dragging - and is so highly pigmented that one layer is enough to achieve the desired shade. The colour is semi-opaque, however if you double-up on layers, you can completely block out your natural lip colour. Firebird feels smooth on the lips, thanks to its creamy texture and, like all UD lipsticks, it is free of scent and taste.

For a tidy lip, I pair this lipstick with the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Firebird Lip Pencil. If you want to create a matte version of Firebird, I recommend using the lip pencil over the entire lip and skipping on the lipstick completely.

The Results: Firebird delivers a bold fuchsia pink shade that has a gorgeous glossy finish. It keeps lips nourished and soft, thanks to its moisturising blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter.

When I combine this lipstick with the Firebird lip pencil, I get a good five hours worth of wear before needing to reapply,


The Pro: Gorgeous colour, gorgeous finish!

The Con: There isn't one
