Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Glosses

Urban Decay has launched a new lip gloss formula called the Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20 each for 0.23 oz/ 7 mL). There are 20 shades total with creams and sparkles and shimmers. Urban Decay describes these as ultra-shiny, cushiony soft, long-lasting and not tacky. I’d say the description is on point on all counts. The color range is quite wide with something for everyone. The formula has a smooth finish and cool-plumping effect without the sting. They have vitamin E and peppermint oil and on my lips while they weren’t really hydrating they did not dry out the lips or make them peel.

These come with a sponge-tip applicator that is flat and skinny:

Up first are the cream colors which are non-shimmers. Pigment varies from sheer to medium. Most of them have a smooth finish in the color but there were a few I found streaky. Left to right: Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Glosses Fuel, 1993, Obsessed, Beso, Rapture, Backtalk, Savage, Snitch, Bang, Jawbreaker.

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Glosses

My favorites in general are the creams. Top five shade picks include Backtalk, Fuel, Snitch, Rapture and Fireball. I’ve been really impressed with the formula. They’re smooth but don’t slide around. The texture is indeed cushiony and comfortable to wear right now. It’s something I think I’ll appreciate even more once the humidity returns.

Overall thumbs up. There are a lot of fun colors to wear and a big enough range of neutrals that are different from each other. I like that a lot of these are natural looking without looking the same. Urban Decay did a great job at launching a diverse range. They do have a minty scent to them but it’s soft and not overpowering.

You can find the Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Glosses out now in stores and online. Available at Sephora, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Ulta Beauty and Urban Decay. If you’re a Sephora Beauty Insider mark your calendar as their savings event starts this week for Rouge. More details and recommendations coming soon!

    Oh my gosh snapped is just the shade I need to replace a unique Marc Jacobs one! So pretty!

    I think I need Backtalk (as if I don’t have enough mauve-y lip colors). UD has been putting out some impressive lip products–I love their Vice formula lipsticks (sheer, satin, and comfort matte). Great review!

    I must have Snitch for the spring/summer!

  • Anna April 10, 2018 at 1:57 am

    Obsessed and Midnight Cowgirl are my favorites 😍

  • Megan April 11, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    These are very beautiful and I love the range of colors. The inclusion of peppermint oil makes me hesitate though as that often irritates my lips. I feel I’d have to try this through a point perk or something before committing to buying it. You look lovely in most every color as usual though πŸ™‚

    I love Fuel and Snitch!

  • mlletendance April 11, 2018 at 10:51 pm

    Beautiful swatches, Beso it’s my favorite!

  • olivia April 12, 2018 at 12:30 am

    I need Dirty Talk… or maybe Shadowheart… how to choose!?

  • Victoria Lo April 12, 2018 at 2:42 am

    so tempted to grab one, but after i lost my dior gloss i was mortified haha

  • Cecilia J April 12, 2018 at 8:49 am

    I usually don’t like glittery lipglosses but these look so cool and not sticky….

  • Dahlia April 12, 2018 at 9:28 am

    I would try a couple, like Backtalk and another neutral or bronze shade. I don’t understand why people get turned off by the peppermint smell…I think it’s so refreshing and it’s not like this is a plumping product.

  • pinksuzanne April 12, 2018 at 10:10 am

    I love your swatching and then pictures of you trying each one. They all look great on you.

  • Stacey April 12, 2018 at 11:36 am

    I am not sold on the packaging but love the look of Bang. I am definitely on the fence!

  • Laura Marin April 12, 2018 at 11:59 am

    I am not a big fan of lipglosses, I prefer the ones that dry in your lips!

  • Sangeeta April 12, 2018 at 12:35 pm

    I love the shades rapture and backtalk – they look perfect for everyday wear.

  • Lydia Jones April 12, 2018 at 1:29 pm

    I am willing to try something new with this collection!!

  • J19 April 12, 2018 at 3:43 pm

    Love it!

  • hh April 12, 2018 at 7:17 pm

    psst… you have a typo in your graphic (“Backtalk” is written as “Balktalk”)
    I like the looks of Obsessed and Rapture!

  • Lisa C April 12, 2018 at 10:06 pm

    These look so nice and I’ve heard nothing but great things about them. Have to try!!

  • Valerie Manke April 13, 2018 at 11:19 am

    So many amazing colors!

  • cpbebe April 13, 2018 at 3:25 pm

    1993 Fireball and Beso are super flattering on you. Love it! I wish UD would stop with all the discontinuing and new releases, I can’t keep up with all the new lines. Bummed that they got rid of the old NAKED gloss line, but these seem pretty too.

  • jingorokitty April 13, 2018 at 6:19 pm

    LOVE Fireball! πŸ˜€ Midnight Cowgirl and Dirty Talk are really pretty too.

  • Face to Curls April 13, 2018 at 10:39 pm

    These colors are so fun. This is a great collection.

  • melanie h April 14, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    Fireball is my dream color! They all look great on you, I have to try them!
