Pros: beautiful shades, gives moisture to my lips, it visually makes my lips appear more pouty, non-tacky feel, pleasant scent, stylish-looking tube
Cons: i can’t think of any

Hello there!

I want to tell you about the new launch by my favorite cosmetic band - Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss.

There are 20 shades in the collection and 4 textures (high-shine finish, metallic finish, shimmer finish and naked finish).


Package and outer appearance

The package of the product is usual, as it was packed with a cardboard box with all the product info on it.

Inside, the box was adorned with pictures of tape-recorders which bring me into playsome humor.

The container with the lip gloss is silver in color. It looks as though made of metal.

The top cap closes with a click.

The top cap itself is ergonomic and pleasant to hold in my hands. It has the UD caption there.



The sponge is actually a flat cushion. It bends and it is pretty soft to the touch. Thanks to this sponge, I find it very easy to apply the lip gloss all over my lips.


Where to buy, price, size, expiration dates

You can buy the product on the official site or in the store which sell UD cosmetics.

The price for the item is $20

Size is 7 ml. (0.23 fl.oz)

It expires within 24 months after the first tube opening.

The product is made in the USA.


List of ingredients:

There are some skin-friendly components like Vitamin E, for example.

The peppermint oil is here to make your lip appear fuller and more pouty.


Product says:

Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss is ultra-shiny, glides on cushiony-soft and provides long-lasting wear that’s comfortable, not tacky.


Laced with vitamin E and peppermint oil, our hydrating formula leaves lips feeling nourished, has an immediate plumping effect and comes in a yummy vanilla-mint flavor. And wait until you see our lineup; whatever gloss frequency you’re on, we’ve got you covered. Tune in to everything from blaring brights to soft neutrals in four different effects—metallic, holographic, cream and sheer cream.



My shade is called Fuel - it is a light neutral-looking nude shade with a tad of peachy color to it.


In the tube the shade seems to have the tiniest granules of shimmer to the formula, but I don’t see them on my lips, even though I know that these granules of shimmer make my lips look fuller for sure.

This Fuel shade looks super glossy and smooth on my lips.

It’s a perfect color for everyday wear and it’ll be especially fine for smokey eyes because it won’t overweigh the total look with too bright lips.


Characteristics and application

The product applies well and doesn’t budge over my lips. Thanks to the thick and lipstick-like consistency, this lip gloss is very easy to smear all over my lips as well as outline the edges of them.

Even if I don’t wear a lip liner, I can be sure that the Urban Decay Hi Fi Shine Lip gloss will stay in place as though glued to my lips. So, there’s nothing to worry about, especially with budging.

I prefer blotting my lips with a tissue paper a little right after application, so as to not let the lip gloss settle on the inside of my mouth and teeth.

The texture of the product isn’t tacky, but very comfortable and creamy. It doesn’t feather and stays on my lips really well. I like the nourishing effect I get from this lip gloss while wear. After removing of the product from my lips, they look supple and nourished.

This lip gloss never creases with a white film inside my lips or budges, but on the contrary, it actually fills all my lip crevices, giving them moisture and hydration. So, I conclude that chapped lips isn’t actually a problem for this lip gloss, and on the contrary, you should wear this product if you have lip problems.

The wear time is decent. The product stays on for 4 hours and then, after the gloss disappearance, there’s a beautifully tinted balm left on my lips.

During application, you can actually vary the thickness of color and you can easily build-up a good coverage and get an intense color payoff, as well as apply it with a very thin layer.

It’s noteworthy that before this product application my lips were very chapped and dry. There were a lot of flakey bits. The Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss brought them back to their normal condition.

Taste and smell:

The product has a very light and sweet peppermint smell. It feels as though I'm chewing peppermint gum.

The smell doesn’t last on my lips long, though I feel it right after application.

The product is sweet and minty to the taste.


Overall impressions:


- beautiful shades and their color selection is really wide;

- the product doesn’t feather even if I don’t use a lip liner beforehand;

- it applies well and doesn’t bleed;

- the product is longwearing;

- it gives good moisture and hydration to my lips and feels as a good lip balm;

- this lip gloss visually makes my lips fuller and pouty thanks to the complicated color it has and peppermint in the components;

- it doesn’t crease with a white film and fades very beautifully;

- the texture is non-tacky;

- pleasant aroma.


I can’t think of any disadvantages about this product for me.

This lip gloss is really comfortable on my lips and it does answer to all the promises.

If you buy this Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss of nude shade or close to your lips color, then you can easily use it as a lip balm and wear it when your lips are chapped and dry. This formula will quickly revive them and protect from bad weather conditions.

I really like such versatile products where I don’t have to have perfect lips before their application. Here I can quickly apply this lip gloss on the go and get beautiful and nourished lips. What’s more, the shade of the product is just killer.
