FOTD: Rock Steady

I haven’t gotten around to these lipsticks… shame! I honestly thought I was going to love Firebird the most in the Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani Collection. But Rock Steady has my heart. The deep red is SO flattering, my goodness. And it wears like a champ. The pencil all over is basically a matte lipstick. The lipstick itself is more of a satin, but it binds to your  lips like a matte. Just stunning.

Firebird pencil and lipstick is on the left, and Rock Steady is on the right.

I am convinced this will be used more than my other reds. I love the idea of a red lipstick, but I honestly don’t wear them as much as I’d like. Kept the rest of the face super simple with Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, Smashbox(?) Heartbreaker Blush, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, and Volume de Chanel Mascara.

Leave my brows alone (they grow long so fast). I’m getting them dealt with in a few days.



  1. When I first saw the ads for this collection Firebird immediately caught my eye, but when I swatched it, I just didn’t love it. Rock Steady on the other hand blew me away! It’s the only lipstick from the collection that went home with me.

    Even my sister who has been married to the same brown lipstick since she was a teenager agreed that if she would ever wear a red lippie, Rock Steady would be it!

  2. Me too! I just KNEW that Firebird would by my first love. No dice. Rock Steady is my JAM. I really love it. Plus it wears all day with no touchups! I filled in my lips completely with the pencil, then went over it with the lipstick. Food and Drink proof. I love it. I’m glad it went home with you! ❤

    I love deeper reds and this one is beautiful on you. My favorite has been MAC Deeply Adored which was LE of course but a friend gifted me a backup.

  4. Thank you! I never got Deeply Adored. Hooray for the backup! 🙂 I do love this lipstick. I’m so surprised at how amazing it looks and wears.
