Last month Urban Decay released a very impressive array of 100 shades with six different finishes, called the VICE Lipsticks*! How amazing is that! The new formula has aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, babassu oil, and Illipe butter to prevent against dryness, add moisture, nourish and soften your lips. Now let’s take a look at the finishes available to choose from
Mega Matte — super intense matte
Comfort Matte — their creamiest matte
Cream — the original creamy luxury formula
Metallized — cream with a high level of pearl pigments
Sheer — a punch of color, with a sheer, shiny finish
Sheer Shimmer — slightly transparent finish with floating pearl and a smooth texture
I have 5 lipsticks from Wende’s Top 10 Picks (the brand’s co-founder) I love the selection of bold brights and neutrals, and all the different finishes. I like the Comfort Mattes and Creams the best, the Metallized formula is very different and pretty cool too. As far as my personal favourite shade out of the five, it will have to be Backtalk, which is a Comfort Matte formula and looks really beautiful on the lips, kind of semi-matte finish it feels comfortable and non-drying and the shade is perfect for everyday wear. I get the longest wear out of the mega mattes and comfort mattes, I would say about 4-5 hours before they start to fade a little, but they still leave a stain on your lips, which I like 🙂
And lastly the packaging – Vice Lipsticks come in a modernized, luxury version of the original lipsticks. A beautiful gunmetal case with a gold base and debossed lettering. The labels are also shade-matched, which makes it easy to find the colour you are looking for.
I just can’t believe Urban Decay brought out 100 new lipsticks, it’s absolutely insane and amazing at the same time! With so much variety there’s definitely something for everyone. I believe they have also expanded the shade range with 50 new 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils, which I haven’t actually tried yet but have put on my wish list 🙂
These are available to purchase on urbandecay.co.uk for £15.00 each, which is a pretty good price I think and I definitely want to pick up at least a couple more.
I’d love to know your thoughts on these, would you be picking up any? What’s your favourite shade?
Have a great day! Victoria xo
