Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash - Review & Swatches

Makeup sets are everywhere right now, and although I love seeing all of the limited addition gifts, it can be tricky deciding which one (or two, ...or three) to buy! Palettes and gift sets also make amazing Christmas presents - hint hint friends and family lol!!

If you're looking for something a little different, I stumbled across the Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash. A lipstick gift set is a little daring I know, but hear me out ....here you're getting SIX  lipsticks in a variety of shades which is perfect for the lipstick lover out there, but also great for someone like me who generally isn't that adventurous when it comes to picking lipsticks shades. I like that I get six mini's to play around with, and inspire my makeup looks as well as future lipstick purchases. 

Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash Review

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

As a present, it's very attractively packaged. You also get a 24/7 Glide-On Clear Lip Pencil - which can be used with any colour lipstick. The minis are not as small as some gift sets I've seen, so I feel that for £29.00 this is great value for money.

IN THE BOX:

Again, inside the box is very pretty; there is a space for each individual lipstick, with the lip-pencil at the front. The lipsticks are packaged in a beautiful metallic, shiny, purple case, with the UD logo on top.

I'm no lipstick connoisseur but on first impressions I'm loving the variety of shades in this set. Pinks, purples, reds and a nude. It contains three of Urban Decays best selling Revolution lipsticks, and also three new limited addition shades for the holiday season.

VERDICT:

I know £29.00 is still a lot of money but these lipsticks are going to last so much longer than a lot of cheaper lipsticks out there. They are so pigmented and stay on for aaaages! As one full size Urban Decay lipstick is £15.00, I'd say that this is a bargain.
I can be fussy with colours due to my skin tone but no joke, I love every single shade!
It's also a lovely way to try out a colour before you purchase the full size version. Amazing if you want to experiment with lip colours, and even better if you're buying this as a gift for someone else!
