[1 swipe, straight from the tube]69 is an amazing color. Urban Decay describes it as a "bright red with pink undertone". Very true. This is a bright, cool red with a strong pink tone to it. 69 has barely there, extremely fine shimmer in it. I don't even know if it was worth mentioning the shimmer, its essentially invisible. 69 has a very rich, creamy finish. This red is pretty strong, but the pink undertone makes it fairly wearable for me. For a glossier finish, I like to top 69 with The Body Shop's Born Lippy gloss in Strawberry.

Urban Decay's Revolution Lipstick in 69 is fantastic. The full sized packaging is sleek with an edgy touch. Take your time applying this lipstick. I'm very pleased with this lipstick's longevity, though transference can be a problem. 69 is a richly pigmented cool red that I would almost call a very deep pink. I really have nothing negative to say about this lipstick. Congratulations Urban Decay on creating a wonderful lipstick formula with a beautiful shade selection (oh how Bang calls to me). While I don't personally have the room in my budget to spend $22 on a single lipstick, and won't purchase any Revolution Lipsticks for that reason, I do think they're worth the money if you're willing to spend it. I wish I had the money to be an Urban Decay fan girl. All around excellent product.

Not smooch proof, yet somehow not enough to disrupt a Pens/Flyers game on NHL14.
