Glosses that Dance to the Beat of Every Drummer
Is there anything more fun than lip gloss? Not for me. Not right now. Why? Because new to the scene is Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine lip gloss in twenty colors and four finishes (at a totally reasonable $20 a piece), and we got to swatch and try all of them. Paaarrr-taay!
We all know that Urban Decay is the patron saint of makeup glitter and funky colors, as well as the creator of the uber-popular Naked palettes, So while fun and funk is abound, there is always something for everyone. The Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss is no exception.
For the Hollaback Girl, Meet the Creams…
From nudes like Fuel, to coral Snitch to violet Jawbreaker to the blushing, mauvey Backtalk; these all have opaque, hi-density color with as-promised hi-fi shine. The gloss is only slightly tacky-just enough to stick to your lips. No need to layer lipstick underneath, these bring their own pigment. Snitch is already in my bag as my everyday, summer-ready gloss on the run.
Urban Decay Hi-Fi lip gloss Cream swatches
Jawbreaker: classic purple
Savage: electric pink
Bang: bright orange-red
Snitch: bright coral
Beso: deep pink mauve
Backtalk: mauve-nude pink
Fuel: light neutral nude
1993: medium brown
For those who saw the light, here are the Sheer Creams…
These colors are fewer-there are just three: Naked, Obsessed and Midnight Cowgirl. Sheer (with just a hint of the color in the bottle) and simple, these are great day staples and super for layering. I’m loving both Obsessed; a lovely, wholesome pink tint with subtle shimmer, and Midnight Cowgirl; a nude tint with a gold-bronze shimmer.

Midnight Cowgirl: nude cream with gold shimmer
Naked: nude-pink with pearly pink shift
Obsessed: baby pink
For the Dancing Queen, I introduce the Holographic glosses…
These have sheer colors made 3-D with multi-faceted glitter shine. Fireball is a stand out, a medium rosy-peach base with darker pink glitter. Also Candy Flip, a pale lavender base with silvery blue/pink glitter. Alone or layered on a lipstick, the dance party is ready to go!

Fireball: holographic peach with pink sparkle
Snapped: deep blue with blue shimmer
SPL: holographic candy pink with iridescent sparkle
Candy Flip: holographic lavender with blue-pink sparkle
For Those About to Rock, I salute you with the Metallized…
These glosses combine the opacity of the Creams with the heavy metal glitter of the Holographics for when you just can’t get enough. When too much feels like never enough reach for Big Bang, a hi-impact fuchsia pink with hot pink glitter. If you are feeling your inner Goth, reach for the dark brown gloss with green-gold glitter they call Shadowheart. I gotta say, Shadowheart is everything.

Dirty Talk: burgundy with pink shimmer
Goldmine: bright gold
Shadowheart chocolate brown with gold sparkle
The colors and finish selections are vast here, but one thing they all do is condition your lips. These Hi-Fi glosses contain vitamin E to nourish, while peppermint oil provides both refreshing tingle as well as natural lip-plumping action! Add a little vanilla and these glosses are tasty, too (at least my dogs think so; always extra kisses when I’m wearing this.)
The flexible foam foot application is cushiony-soft, making for the most comfortable lip shine application ever. I mean, I didn’t realize lip glossing was an uncomfortable affair until I tried these. Who knew? The applicator also makes loading on the gloss super easy.
To sum it all up, UD Hi Fi Lip gloss is comfortable to apply and wear, quite tasty, and nourishing to boot. The wide selection of colors and finishes means there’s something for you, your daughter, and your grandmother. I dare you all NOT to find your perfect gloss-mate in these.
