The eight lipsticks from the new Urban Decay UD Gwen Stefani Collection ($18 each)

GIRL, you know I had to do it. You cannot put all of those juicy reds in front of a girl like me and NOT expect her to at least try on a couple (OK, all) of them.

Here’s the whole batch, swatches of all eight lipsticks from the new Urban Decay UD Gwen Stefani Collection ($18 each).


I have to say, a few of them have me seriously wowed — Firebird, 714, Rock Steady, Spider and Wonderland (basically, all of the opaque shades). They’re all gloriously intense, although, hello! — note to self: use them with their coordinating UD Gwen Stefani Lip Pencils next time, because getting those edges smooth was harder than herding cats.

The sheer shades (Ex-Girlfriend, Phone Call and Plaid) have a healthy dose of pigment (for sheers), but they end up showing off my lip flakie-flakes more than I’d like, and, yes, I’m still bummed about Ex-Girlfriend breaking in the tube. 😢

    So many pretties! Reds and fuchsias are my favorite lip shades. I have to have Firebird. And Spiderwebs. And Wonderland…must…stop…

  9. jessica says:

    i don’t need any more red lippies. a lot of these look similar to each other.

    as much as I LOVE UD always and forever, i am underwhelmed by the Gwen collection. even though I like Gwen too.

  10. One Ex-Girlfriend, please!

  11. Fran says:

    Firebird, Rock Steady, and Wonderland are definitely going on my wish list — all of these are beautiful, really.

  12. Stephanie says:

    I’ll just stare at these for a while, shall I? So since you mentioned lip liners, do you use a brush to apply lipstick so smoothly? Because Karen, those look sooooo pretty on your lips, and whenever I put on lipstick from the bullet… let’s just say I never look as pulled together as you do. Makeup, why are you so hard??

  13. Lulle says:

    Wow, Spiderweb is a beauty!

    * Sad face* These are an easy pass for me. Ex-Girlfriend intrigued me the most because, hello, nude! But, I gravitate towards opaque colors with intense pigmentation- even nudes. And although I love me a good red, because, hello, RED, I’ve got plenty in my Arsenal. Although I’ve got a few sniffles over not getting anything in this collection (ok, maybe an ugly cry or two 😉), my wallet is proud of me. But hey, whatdoesmywalletknow?
    Great close up pics. 🙂

  15. Allison C says:

    Gorgeous collection of lipsticks! I need to see these beauties in person. I love the reds but some look similar so I want to see them close up 🙂

  16. Kim says:

    I know we share the same Gwen love so I’m very excited to see anything she does. You look fabulous in all the shades, of course! These colors are far too bold for me, but they’re great for you and Gwennie! 🙂

  17. Belle says:

    *raises eyebrows* I see no flakie flakes Karen! These all look beautiful. I’m bummed that my favorite (Ex-girlfriend) isn’t more opaque. Spiderweb looks gorgeous too! xx

  18. Lisa says:

    I feel like this range should have a BANANAS powder.

  19. Susan C. says:

    Ex-Girlfriend and Spiderweb will be mine!! Not that I really *need* more lipsticks at this point, but the colors are gorge and I love those songs! I plan to sing as I apply these…

  20. Erin says:

    Phone Call and ExGirlfriend seem a little iffy on pigmentation and smoothness but the rest are home runs!

  21. Lauren K. says:

    They sure do know what they’re doing with that packaging for this lip collection. I’m tempted for more reds, but I definitely have too many…so maybe Wonderland? I have till Tuesday to decide!

  22. Nicole says:

    OMG! I’m going to be so broke when this launches. I wish they were permanent because buying the liners and the blush palette is going to get pricey! Thanks for the swatches.

  23. gabi says:

    I was attracted to these at first but looking closer to the swatches, idk. The finishes are not my favorite and the colors, nothing new. And some are even very similar to other products I already have. Plaid reminds me a bit of MAC’s Petit Red and Rock Steady is a lot like NARS Deadly Catch lipstick.
    I might get one lipstick because of the fabulous packaging but I’m more prone to get the lip pencils.

  24. Heather L says:

    I’m a fanatic fan of Gwen, and I am totally loving the eyeshadow palette, but given how red-heavy the collection is and the fact that I’m not a big fan of sheers I only expect to pick up a few of these: Spiderweb, Firebird, and Ex-Girlfriend. I noticed that some of these are only available on the Urban Decay website as well, so I wanted to pick some up that I could earn some Ulta/Sephora rewards for! Can’t wait to add these to the Gwen collection!

  25. Makai says:

    Do you know if Sephora or Ulta will be carrying these Gwen Stefani lipsticks or are they only on the Urban Decay site? I see they SOLD OUT on the UD website. Rather get it at Sephora or Ulta…

  26. Jennifae says:

    You make everything look so good! Can’t wait to get my hands on these!

  27. I’m torn between Rock Steady or 714. Both shades look so gorgeous.

  28. Kelly says:

    Love the Wonderland shade and am currently looking for a very similar nail color. Any suggestions brand/color?
