Swap For Safer: Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick

Time for another Swap For Safer! Today is focused on the Sheer Revolution Lipsticks from Urban Decay. 

I found a safer option that still provides excellent color, but has 100% natural ingredients!

Let's get started!

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick

The Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks are:

"...a rich, creamy feel and a gorgeous, high-shine finish....this sheer version hugs your lips and has a buttery-smooth application without feeling like it’s going to slide off. 

These lipsticks retail for $22 (0.09 oz), and are available in-store and online at Ulta, Sephora, and the Urban Decay Website. They are available in 10 shades.

Like the description suggests, the formula is a sheer wash of color and looks natural on the lips. It feels very comfortable on the lips, and if you're someone who likes a more natural looking lip or needs a moisturizing formula, this is your kind of lipstick.

However, with ingredients that include Polyethylene, and numerous synthetic dyes, they're not the safest of ingredients. However, they do not contain parabens, phenoxyethanol, or parfums.


Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Phytosteryl/Isostearyl/Cetyl/Stearyl/Behenyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Octyldodecanol, Polyethylene, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Triisostearin, Phenyl Trimethicone, Hydrated Silica, Squalane, Cera Microcristallina (Microcrystalline Wax/Cire Microcristalline), Mica, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Hydrogenated Olive Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Tribehenin, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopherol, Sorbitan Isostearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado/Avocat) Oil, Shorea Stenoptera Seed Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Acrylates Copolymer, Silica Tin Oxide. May Contain: CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491/77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 15850 (Red 7 Lake), CI 42090 (Blue 1 Lake), CI 15985 (Yellow 6 Lake).

This safer alternative is 100% Natural and less than half the price!

Burt's Bees Lipsticks

Burt's Bees Lipstick

These retail for $8.99 (0.12 oz) and are available in-store and online at Ulta and your local drugstores. They are available in 14 shades.

The new lipsticks from Burt's Bees are also a lightweight and sheer formula that leaves your lips feeling moisturized, and the color leaves a similar shine to the lips that the Urban Decay Sheer Lipsticks do.

Check out Full Reviews of two shades HERE and HERE.

If you're a fan of sheer lipsticks, check these out. You will love how comfortable they feel on the lips and how moisturized your lips feel at the end of the day.

Urban Decay retails for $22, while the Burt's Bees Lipsticks are only $8.99. So you could purchase 2 of these lipsticks for the price of 1 Urban Decay Lipstick. 

Plus, 100% Natural Ingredients!


Diheptyl Succinate, Ricinus Communis(Castor) Seed Oil, Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer,Cera Alba [Beeswax], Candelilla Cera [Euphorbia Cerifera(Candelilla) Wax], Behenyl Alcohol, Oleic/Linoleic/Linolenic Polyglycerides, C12-18 Acid Triglyceride, Lanolin, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cera Carnauba [Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax], Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed.
