Why hello there and happy Monday! Today I have the brand new Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse shades for ya!
Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse is a new product that comes in eight shades. But what the hell is lip mousse? I was kind of confused when I first saw these in the cute little purple compacts. Lip mousse is a weightless, waterproof, buildable lip color with a velvet-like texture and soft finish.
As mentioned above, these come in little cute compacts that include a little mirror as well as an applicator that pops out when you open it. Cool idea!
The product looks almost like a sponge or something when you first look at it.
This is the little applicator you can use, or use your finger!
After using it the first time, it blends out into more of a “normal” lipstick-like texture, but still applies very differently.
Halo is a soft baby pink.
Wavelength is a light lilac.
Frequency is an orange/red.
Noise is a fuchsia.
Echo is a mauve/taupe.
Amplify is a bright red.
Fade is a medium brown.
Boom is a deep purple.
These are interesting and strange! At first when I was applying them I didn’t think I liked them at all. They felt like they would be really dry and hard to get even. But they actually are really easy. You can just pat them on with a finger or the applicator. And you can keep adding more for more saturation. I like how they are completely weightless, as though there is literally nothing on your lips at all. But they have more color than a typical lip stain.
Obviously they are matte (well, more powdery looking), but I imagine if you don’t love the finish you could add a lip balm or clear gloss on top. I am really kind of digging how easy they are to use and especially in the summertime! They seem like a great substitute for a sticky gloss or heavy lipstick when it’s boiling hot out.
You can find Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse on their site now and they are $22.00 each.
What do you think of the idea of a lip mousse?
