The new Vice lipstick collection by Urban Decay has literally took the beauty world by storm. I mean, the majority of the ‘go to, popular’ shades were more or less instantly sold out in stores PLUS everyone on Twitter has been retweeting & favouriting for the possibility of getting their hands on and winning one of the complete vault sets! It really has been crazy as to how popular this new 100 piece collection of lipsticks has gone down… which is why I OF COURSE had to see what all the fuss was about. Within this post, I’m going to be sharing three different shades of lipstick from the Urban Decay Vice collection, with one having a cream finish, the other metallized and the last a comfort matte.
How classy is the packaging?!
and here they are…
This shade really is perfect for any nude-pink lippie lover! I mean.. quite rightly, Urban Decay have described this shade as a nude-pink, which I without a doubt have to agree with. The cream finish also means that this lipstick gives quite a sheer finish – making it comfortable to wear as to apply.
First and foremost, I would have to say that the finish of this lipstick definitely reminds me of those by MAC in the frosted collection. As this metallized finish lippie has an almost shimmery and glow’y finish but then it’s also fairly matte at the same time. In terms of shade, Urban Decay describe this as being a metallic dusty mauve-rose, which to be honest I don’t really see. In my opinion I would describe this shade as a champagne-nude with a light brown undertone – but of course all of our lips are different and lipstick shades can look different on different people all of the time!
(Comfort Matte finish)
For some reason this shade caught my heart straight the way! I mean, I even went as far as visiting two different Urban Decay counters in hope of purchasing this shade when it first came out but unfortunately other great minds think alike as it was sold out both times!
Urban Decay describe this lovely matte shade as a mauve-nude pink, which I have to say makes perfect sense. As the pink is slightly rose’y with a subtle plum undertone but then it does remind me of a nude all at the same time! The comfort matte finish then makes this lipstick.. you guessed it! very comfortable to wear, as usually matte lipsticks can be drying on the lips and difficult to apply but you’ll be pleased to hear, this one doesn’t follow suit, as it goes on fairly smoothly with a very descent pigmented creamy formula.
Overall, I have to say I’m impressed by these Urban Decay lipsticks. They’re products by Urban Decay that personally I’ve not tried before but now I can pretty confidently say they will be ones that I will be continuing to use in the future. When applying these lipsticks I have found that lip oil’s in particular prevent good pigmentation, so try and use a balm styled lip primer before popping these onto your lips as it’ll give you the best that these lipsticks have to offer!
What do you think to these lipsticks, have you tried any from the new Vice collection yet?!
