Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses Review Video Swatches

Hi there! Today I’m excited to share the all new  Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses with you. UD has given us 9 new ways to get naked and they’re all vegan!

Let me let you in on a little secret. I used to be a lipgloss addict, eschewing lipstick for lipgloss 95% of the time. Then I fell in love with lipstick and lipgloss fell to the wayside. Now I like to use gloss again, sparingly, to add depth or dimension to the lips.

About the Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses
If you ask Wende about the evolution of Urban Decay and how we stay relevant year after year, she’ll probably tell you, “We’re always evolving.” Case in point: lipgloss. We’ve created lots of glosses over the years and they’ve all held a spot in our makeup-obsessed hearts. But none of them can top our newest formula. Like a luxe gloss and a rich balm all rolled into one, it’s unlike ANYTHING you’ve ever tried. We painstakingly crafted the formula, obsessing over every last detail until it was just right and then we tweaked and perfected it some more! Even the firmly gloss averse  will become hardcore addicts to this gloss. It not only looks and feels amazing on your lips, it’s also really nourishing. And we have the claims to prove it! With its creamy texture and gorgeous, high-gloss finish, Naked lipgloss is the perfect gloss to complement a UD smoky eye. It not only makes your lips dangerously kissable but also feels so luxe that you’ll want to keep applying it all day (even when you don’t need to).

  • Currently available in 9 shades
  • Laced with Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, Vitamin E, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Rosehip Seed Oil, antioxidants, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
  • All Glosses are Vegan

In a clinical study of the Naked Lipgloss (study reflects results immediately after use)

  • 86% of participants had a significant improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • 76% had a significant improvement in volume and hidration
  • 86% said their lips felt nourished

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses Swatches Review

 

Packaging
The packaging is gorgeous! You can see the gloss color on the end of the packaging, as well as through the cutout Naked. It’s a pretty champagne color and feels luxe. The paddle lays down color easily.
My Naked Lips These are my naked lips. Sadly I took this picture AFTER swatching 3 shades and my lips were already starting to get irritated.

My Thoughts
The new Naked Ultra Nourishing lipglosses definitely live up to their name. They’re made with shea butter, avocado oil, rosehip seed oil, Vitamin A and Vitamin C, all of which make your lips feel moisturized and soft. I only noticed a few of the colors settling into the fine lines in my lips, but I did not feel like they migrated. They are comfortable to wear and stayed put on my parched lips, which I appreciated!

These are NOT pigmented glosses. They’re very light. They’re meant for layering or for a My Lips But Better (MLBB) look. So you can layer them on top of your favorite Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (see swatches of all shades) or your favorite lip pencil (see swatches of all UD lip pencils). They have a slightly minty taste/smell that fades quickly for me. They really are incredibly comfortable to wear and I don’t think they feel sticky.

In general I don’t expect gloss to last through a meal. Glosses tend to last just a few hours for me. I wore Freestyle for 3 hours. It didn’t settle into fine lines or bleed on me. It did wear off during dinner, which I expected. It was very moisturizing and comfortable to wear, especially on my irritated lips (which were irritated after swatching 9 shades; swatching that many caused a rosacea flare up by my lip line).

 

Pros

  • Very moisturizing
  • Not sticky
  • Flattering nudes – there really is at least one shade for everyone!
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan

Cons

  • If you don’t like lightly pigmented glosses, you will not like these

Honestly, these glosses are perfect to add extra depth and dimension to your pout, the way James Vincent recommends – at the center of your lips. They’re moisturizing and comfortable. If you’re in a hurry and you only have time to swipe on some gloss, these are pretty goof proof and will give you enough color to look polished. I think anyone would benefit from a shade or two like this in their makeup arsenal.

      Do you know if these are replacing the Lip Junkie glosses? These look fabulous and the packaging is so chic.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I don’t think they’re replacing them but I’m not 100% sure. The Lip Junkies are a completely different texture and I believe they’re more pigmented.

    • Anastasia

      I also went through the lipgloss stage, then lipstains, then lipstick, and now I’m also having fun combining lipsticks and glosses for more depth :) These colors are all gorgeous, but my favorites are probably Liar and Lovechild :)

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Yay! Yeah you can do some amazing things with layering

    • http://www.slashedbeauty.com/ Miranda Mendoza

      Wow, I had no clue these were coming out! I’m not a big fan of lipglosses but Freestyle is pretty!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Yeah Freestyle was awsome!

    • Aleya Bamdad

      The coral shades are so pretty. I like to use lipstick and gloss together.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I was excited by how comfortable these were to wear. I so rarely wear gloss these days.

    • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

      OMG I’m dying to try these! They’re all totally up my alley!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I KNEW you would love them!

    • http://wendyprettylittlethings.blogspot.com/ Wendy Lee

      I didn’t know it was possible to want all the lip glosses in a single collection… enter Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss. Love the benefits too!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Glad you like them!

    • Nidia Doherty

      The sparkly one and Beso look like something I’d like. Maybe nooner. I tend to prefer more oomph in my lippie, though.

    • Ange

      Loving Liar and Nooner!

    • BeautyJudy

      I love them all honestly, they sound great! I hope your skin heals quick from the swatch fest!

    • MyNewestAddiction

      The packaging is gorgeous and I am a sucker for a nude lip! :) I guess that means that I will be purchasing at least half of the collection!

    • marciaf

      Naked is taking over the world of beauty. I rarely wear a gloss alone but I like them over lipstick so these would be great for me.

    • http://libbyspinkvanity.blogspot.com Kimberly

      It’s great to see that naked doesn’t have to mean dull anymore!

    • FabZilla_Kath

      These look gorgeous too me. I used to be a lipgloss woman, then lip stain, then matte, then sheen. It’s nice to revisit my gloss obsession. I’ll probably pick 2 or 3 from this UD Naked collection

    • Harshleen

      The formula sounds wonderful! Lots of moisture and non-sticky….count me in! The packaging looks great too!

    • Farryn

      Ohhh these are stunning! I want Lovechild I’m a sucker for all the pinky tones :)

    • http://www.painted-ladies.com/ Sheila Arkee

      I need Streak, Naked, and Beso.

      They all look soooo pretty. Want them all.

    • Xero

      I need Rule34 just for the name.

    • Chia-Yi Liu

      my current favorite is to wear a lipstain and travel with a pigmented lipgloss so these look a little too sheer for that purpose. liar looks like a good mlbb and nooner looks like it’d be a great nude look and i like the shimmer in freestyle and walk of shame
