Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick & 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Urban Decay has launched and relaunched two great products that will have lips drenched in beautiful color this fall. We all know that creamy color is where it's at. Whether it's bright, bold or neutral, highly pigmented color that lasts and feels great on the lips is a must. Urban Decay has managed to do just that with Revolution Lipstick and to go with it, the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Fall Lips: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick & 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Revolution Lipstick - $22.00

This lipstick is so good. Really. It features a creamy formula unlike any other I have ever tried before. It is super thick and feels almost cushiony on the lips. It feels like a super hydrating lip balm, but better. Each of the 22 shades are highly pigmented. From gorgeous nudes to bold brights, there is something here for everyone. I am partial to nude or rosy nude shades. I am loving Naked, Naked2, Liar and Native. The complete list of shades:

  • 69 - Bright Red with Pink Undertone
  • Anarchy - Bright Fuchsia
  • Bang - Bright Orange-Red
  • Catfight - Pink Fuchsia with Slight Red Undertone
  • F-Bomb - Classic Red
  • Fiend - Muted Rose
  • Jilted - Deep Fuchsia Shimmer with Blue Shift
  • Liar - Pink-Brown Nude
  • Lovelight - Pale Peachy-Pink Shimmer
  • Manic - Soft Wine
  • Naked - Nude-Pink
  • Naked2 - Medium Beige-Nude
  • Native - Pale Pink
  • Obsessed - Bright Baby Pink
  • Protest - Sheer Peachy Nude
  • Rapture - Dusty Rose
  • Rush - Pink Mauve
  • Shame  Deep Berry
  • Streak - Coral Pink
  • Strip - Sheer Medium Mauve-Nude
  • Turn On - Rosy Pink
  • Venom - Bright Plum

24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil - $19.00

I have a love hate relationship with lip pencils. I use them everyday, but I really hate the way they feel. I obviously had never tried this one before, because this pencil really does glide onto lips. 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil glides on lips with ease. It is super creamy yet stays in place. It is super long-lasting and provides a waterproof base that helps to make lipstick last longer. I like to match my lipstick to my pencil to further extend wear, and I love that there are matching liner shades to the new Revolution lipsticks. There is also a clear shade, which is brilliant, called Ozone. I am definitely picking that one up. The complete list of shades:

  • 69 - Classic Red
  • Anarchy - Bright Fuchsia
  • Bang - Bright Orange-Red
  • Deep - Warm Brown-Nude
  • Jilted - Deep Fuchsia-Pink
  • Liar - Mauve Nude
  • Manic - Rosy Wine
  • Naked - Nude-Pink
  • Naked2 - Medium Beige-Nude
  • Native - Pale Pink
  • Obsessed - Baby Pink
  • Ozone - Clear
  • Rush - Pink Mauve with Soft Pearl
  • Streak - Coral Pink with Soft Pearl
  • Turn On - Rose-Pink with Soft Pearl
  • Venom - Rich Plum

Both products are available now from Sephora, ULTA, select Macy's, beauty.com and urbandecay.com.

Actress Jamie Chung stopped by Urban Decay’s “The Kisshibition” in New York City yesterday to pick up the a new Revolution Lipstick collection and watch live performance art by Natalie Irish, the kisser of the canvases, while enjoying music spun by DJ Kiss. Jamie looked stunning wearing a Badgley Mischka dress, Christian Louboutin heels, and Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb.

Makeup Wars: My Makeup Storage.

As a beauty blogger and someone who is simply pretty much obsessed with beauty products, I have a lot of products. I am fortunate to do what I do and test a lot of makeup, skin care and hair care items, but it can be overwhelming. Luckily, I have a teenaged daughter with a lot of friends, a sister who is just as addicted to beauty as me, and quite a few friends and family members that regularly go through my stash of products. I also make seasonal donations to local women's shelters and donate to events, etc.. Even with all these hands in my stash, I accumulate a lot.

At times, all these beauty products can seemingly take over my house. I had come up with a system of organizing that works for me. It is not a pretty system. It is not for anyone to see. I like to think of it as organized chaos, actually. While I really don't know where any one thing is, I sort of have an idea of where it may be.

Beauty Blogger Makeup Organization Tips

When I receive products, I unload them onto shelves in my home office. These are the newest of my beauty products; they have either recently been reviewed or need to be reviewed. I clean out these shelves about every month.

From those shelves in my home office, products make their way into a large armoire that I have in my bedroom. Seasonal products or favorites that I may pull out on a regular basis go on the top shelf in bins. I have one bin for lips, eyes, face and skin. Products that need more organizing or storing go into a set of large plastic drawers that I keep in the armoire. I have one unit for department store brands and another for drugstore and mass brands. I label the shelves, again for lips, eye, face and skin. My larger products and sets, products that aren't so easily stored are just thrown in here in front too. These are products I will probably be needing or using soon. Items such as razors, shampoo, body creams and such like to hang out here.

Makeup Organization

I try to do a major reorganization each quarter. This is when I toss old products and put together boxes to donate. As I do this, I fill up drawers in these two lingerie dressers.

Makeup Organization Drawers

These dressers have a lot of smaller sized drawers that are perfect for storing makeup. Because I have many more drawers, I can further separate and organize more. Here I have a drawer for things such as my all time favorite MAC lip products, the eyeshadow palettes I use often, or just a random drawer of lippies.

I told you it wasn't pretty, but for now, my beauty stash organization works well for me.

I can't wait to see how the rest of my beauty blogger friends store their stash of beauty products too.
