As you all probably know by now, I am a sucker for a new lipstick. When I heard that Urban Decay were releasing 100 new lipsticks, I got a little on the excited side to say the least! I immediately went to have a look and ended up leaving with the sparkliest colour of them all - Big Bang!
You can see from the bullet how amazing this shade is. I cannot explain how sparkly it is in real life, it is pure glitter perfection. I must admit, when I first swatched this, I was a bit unsure how the glitter would come across. I didn't want it to have a tacky feel to it, but then who am I kidding..I NEVER find glitter tacky!
This lipstick is just absolute perfection, definitely not tacky at all. The 'Hot Pink' boldness and glitter payoff is just amazing, it gives the effect of a sparkly lipgloss without the stickiness. It does have a slight tacky feeling to it, but nowhere near the hair sticking to your lips feeling that glosses seem to have.
I applied this both directly and using a lip brush and none of the glitter fell out at all. I was a bit worried that it would lost its boldness when applied with a brush, but it was just as spangly. After trying this shade, I feel I need to invest in every Metallised shade going.
Sadly, my local Debenhams didn't stock all 100 shades, they had about 50 which is still a pretty amazing selection. I left with my hand looking like a red and purple rainbow and a few new lipsticks to mentally add to my collection.
