Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color

What it is:Urban Decay's creamiest, most sumptuously pigmented lip pencil. What it does:This formula delivers all the opaque, saturated, high-impact color of your favorite lipstick and an arresting high-gloss finish in one chubby pencil. And with a dynamic bright to deep shade range in creamy and sparkly textures, the runway-ready possibilities are endless. Even the glittery hues in this collection of high-gloss lip pencils feel smooth on your lips (and leave not a trace of sparkle grit). This conveniently portable pencil's high-gloss shine can be blotted for a more stain-like effect, but no matter how you wear it, the color lasts. Free of mineral oil and paraffin, this formula contains plant-derived ingredients that nourish lips. Because the barrels and boxes are color-matched to each shade, locating the color you want is easy, even in the deep, dark depths of an oversize tote.

No. It stays on for hours and will leave your lips "stained", but not the way that a stain would. It would need to be reapplied after eating.

I have this pencil in Naked so obviously it's not going to deliver as much color as some of the other shades. It stays on great for me and I love that it's not all over my cup at work. That grosses me out. But it's nothing like a stain, I wear mine mostly at work and I usually don't have to reapply until after lunch and maybe once more before I leave.

I also have an olive/yellowish/sometimes pale skin as well. To be honest, I wear almost everything. The only lip color shades that I shy away from are oranges. They just look clown like with my skin no matter being tan or pale. Oranges and any red shades with gold tones, because the gold tone gives an orange tint. For eyes, I use anything but gold, pastels, and silver eyeliner. You have a great tone that goes with almost anything. You just need to wear it with confidence and no one will question your choice. That skin tone is too gorgeous to waste on brown eye shadow and nude lipstick!

I too have skin that gets quite tan in the summer and the dreaded yellow, faded tan in the winter. I was surprised how good F-Bomb looked on me. It is a great neutral red. Adrenaline looked great on me too--but it is so glittery it is for night, dancing, a party or if you just like to have a little extra pop of color on your lips. Orange-reds usually look good on me too, but Punch Drunk was too straight up orange and made me look a little too yellow. Hope this helps.

A lot of people get nervous about trying lip color, escpecially if they are of brighter hues. From what you described your features as, i feel like you have to reason to be self concious, it just takes some getting used to. I would recomend wearing crush, its a bright pink and mostly works with everyones skintones (i have the same skin as you, and I wear this color all the time) plus your teeth will look super white!

I am 55 and love this pencil - I have it in "Naked". I wanted a pink/neutral and this is very natural looking. Then lipstick colors are not the same color as the pencils or gloss/tubes. In the lipstick "Naked" is more tan/orange and very matte which was not flattering. The pencil is a bit glossy, not overpowering - I personally would not do the sparkly pink, and red can be tricky at my age so I haven't tried it.

I'm in my 50's. The color was a red that not only did not complement my skin but also made me look older, even dated. As you age we need to be very discriminating and try different shades and honestly ask ourselves if a color makes us look fresh and contemporary or older than we actually are.

My mom purchased this pencil in F-Bomb (the red) and she's 48. She uses it sparingly, like a stain. She doesn't put it on as saturated as the product will allow, she dots it on and quickly rubs her lips around and get the color deposited and then she adds a gloss to the top throughout the day. A matte gloss, like Rosebud salve. It looks nice on her :) All of the pinks are sparkly except Crush, which is a very hot pink. You can do the same effect with it as well. For a little pink color.

I'm not in your age bracket (almost 30), but have older sisters. Based on how much I share when I find new makeup...here are my thoughts.

This item is very moisurizing. If you want to minimize any aging effects, using a good lip plumper, then this item, would do the trick.

You don't need a lip liner with this item because it's sort of a lip liner built in by way in which you apply it (as a pencil).

If you love creamy lipsticks right now, with stronger pigments, you aren't going out of your familiar zone at all, the texture is very nice.

The only hesitation you may have is with the vibrancy of the colors themselves. I myself bought Fbomb, the bright red, as I adore reds. The other colors seem to be an array of bright pinks with sparkles, which I would guess might not be your thing? (Pardon me if I'm wrong!!)

I would however suggest Urban Decay's lipsticks very very highly, particularly the nude colors like naked or jailbait, for everyday colors for work, etc (my reason for purchasing). Their red lipstick in Revolution is also a very bright, lovely red.

If you're still looking for a pencil gloss or lipstick, also check out NARS matte lip pencil lipstick. I own Dolce Vita, which is an amazing dusty rose and very flattering and much longer lasting (doesn't wipe off as easily as this item does).

For coloring reference, I have palest of pale skin, brown eyes, and dark red hair.

Hope that helped even if it wasn't necessarily what you were originally looking for!

Oh and for a plumper, try Too Faced's or DuWop Lip Venom (the second being my favorite), also both available here. Lip Venom is a miracle working at filling in lines and puffing up lips, even though it's tingly, it's a rather nice tingle once you're familiar with it.

I am 45 and bought one of these pencils in Adrenaline. I do not recommend them for our age group because there is too much glitter inthe pencil and the colors are VERY bright. I found it to be drying and the glitter eneded up all around my mouth area. If you can find one without the glitter, you might try it at the store before buying. I hope this helps.
