Lipsticks, glosses, stains and even lip oils aren’t anything out of the ordinary. But a lip mousse? That’s probably something you haven’t heard of. Until now. Urban Decay has just unveiled its Lo-Fi Lip Mousse ($22) and the lippies will reinvigorate your makeup bag.
If you’ve tried some of the lip cushions on the market, you will like the Urban Decay Lip Mousse because it offers a similar stained effect. Some might actually mistake the Lo-Fi Lip Mousse for a cushion blush or a cushion compact because the product comes in a rounded compact.
Urban Decay describes the Lo-Fi Lip Mousses as modern matte lip colors with a comfortable whipped airy finish. They’re similar to a lip stain because they can be used to create a just-bitten look. The difference is that they are weightless and feature buildable, waterproof color.
There are eight striking colors to choose from. They are Amplify (red), Wavelength (vivid rosebud pink), Echo (subdued pink), Noise (fuchsia), Halo (petal pink), Frequency (electric red), Boom (plum) and Fade (pinkish brown).
To apply the Lo-Fi Lip Mousses, Urban Decay recommends dabbing it on with you finger and keep building it up until you’ve reached your desired intensity. If you want a bolder finish (and you don’t want dirty fingers) there’s a handy pop-out applicator in the compact.
