Urban Decay have done it again... Their amazing collaboration with Gwen Stefani doesn't just stop at the blush palette, there are lipsticks and lip liners too!

The collection consists of eight lipsticks, two of which are web exclusive and six lip liners. I have been using the six easily available lipsticks and their five matching liners. (For some reason their isn't a liner to match 'Spiderweb', but I've been using any red liner with this... luckily it's pretty easy to match up), all of the other shade names match their matching liner, making it fool proof when it comes to deciding which to pair together.

If anyone knows their lipsticks it's Gwen, she's worn every colour in the book and has used her knowledge to create the best collection you could wish for, a real must-have selection for any beauty lover. The shades are so varied, there is something to tick the boxes for everyone and any occasion.
The packaging was also designed in collaboration with Gwen, inspired by her love of graphic prints and antique gold accents... it's really eye catching and definitely stands out from the crowd.

As you come to expect with Urban Decay products, the quality of these products is top notch... the lipsticks are creamy, moisturising (yes even the matte shade!) and amazingly pigmented - you get exactly what's in the bullet on the lips with these, this is thanks to UD's proprietary pigment infusion system which gives a super creamy texture and rich payout colour dispersion.

The liners are also really smooth to apply due to the best selling UD 24/7 formula which contains ingredients including Vitamin E, jojoba oil and cottonseed oil. They are extremely long lasting, prevent feathering and prime the lips perfectly for the lipstick.
Both products are extremely comfortable to wear... I would recommend to anyone, they're literally the dream duo for your lips!
Ex Girlfriend - A shimmering, sheer nude which has converted me to actually liking a nude shade on myself. I usually reach for red shades, but this is just so flattering and easy to wear, it's become my go-to everyday lip combination. This is really hydrating and glossy without being sticky and will work well with almost any skin tone.
Wonderland - My favourite from the collection, this is a stunning red/pink shade. It's really highly pigmented and vibrant but still really wearable. I've worn this for a night out but also during the day with a simple black outfit just to add a burst of colour and statement to my look.
714 - A bright red matte, which UD describe as a 'mega matte', a super intense matte shade which lays down a lot of colour in one coat. Don't worry though, although this is matte, it glides on smoothly and doesn't dry out the lips at all, in colour it reminds me of Mac Russian Red, with slight orange tones to it.
Firebird - A creamy deep fuchsia which is super fun and bright, but not so out there that you won't want to wear it. It has a really pretty shine to it when applied and is definitely a conversation starter... If you want something fun and a little bit different, this is the lippie for you!
Rocksteady - A deep, dark red which I just love to wear, it has brown undertones which are very 'on trend' right now and works well against my pale complexion (if it works for me, it will work for most!) This is one which I didn't think I'd get much wear out of, but actually find myself reaching for quite often. 
Spiderweb - A true red shade, ideal for anyone looking for that pin up girl shade... it's very 'Gwen'. I believe every girl needs a red lipstick in their collection and this is the ideal shade for anyone.

Have you tried any of the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani products yet... Which are your favourites?
