URBAN DECAY VICE LIPSTICKS

Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks

I wanted to introduce you to some of Urban Decay’s new Vice Lipsticks*. They have released 100 of them in 6 different formulations. All of them are packed with colour and long-lasting, and I’ve been trying out five.

The six different formulations are Mega Matte (a super-intense matte), Comfort Matte (a creamier, more hydrating matte), Cream (the original Urban Decay formula that’s utterly indulgent), Metallized (the cream formula with a pearlescent shine), Sheer (a shiny sheer that gives a pop of colour) and Sheer Shimmer (a formula that’s slightly transparent and pearlescent). All of the 100 lipsticks (£15 each) nourish and protect the lips with a blend of aloe vera, jojoba, avocado and babassu oils, illipe butter, Vitamin A and Vitamin E.

The shades I’ve been trying are the Metallized Big Bang (a Barbie pink), the Mega Matte 714 (an orange-toned red from the Gwen Stefani Collection), the Mega Matte Pandemonium (a blue-toned purple), the Cream Firebird (a fuchsia that you will have seen in the Gwen Stefani Collection) and the Comfort Matte Back Talk (a ‘your lips but better’ pink-toned nude). I really like all of these but it’s worth noting that the Mega Mattes are a bit drying on the lips, so prep them well before applying. My favourite of these 5 shades is Back Talk – I may have found my perfect nude!

I also think it’s important for me to say that I don’t agree with the fact that Urban Decay are marketing these lipsticks as looking like shotgun shells. I understand that Urban Decay are a brand that like to push boundaries (and I love them for that) but given the way guns are used in the world now and the impact they have, it’s not appropriate to trivialise them like this.

Which of the new Vice Lipstick range have you tried?
