Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Collection*

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

When it comes to lipstick, it takes an awful lot for a brand to stand out. I tend to look for a great selection of colours, various formulas and a certain amount of glamour. Happily, Urban Decay have all of the above in spadefuls, and much, much more. And when I say more, I mean it. Where most brands tap out at 20 – 30 shades and finishes, Urban Decay have just released their Vice collection which has 100!

Urban Decay Vice Pandemonium

I was kindly sent over a few of the shades to try, and I’m happy to admit I’ve been completely won over – the shade collection is (unsurprisingly) incredible. No matter who natural or vivid you want your lips, there’s something for you. There are six finishes to choose from: mettalized, cream, sheer, sheer shimmer, comfort matte and mega matte, and the first I tried, Pandemonium, is a mega matte. It’s possibly one of the most vibrant shades I own – purple with a slight red undertone.

Urban Decay Vice 714

714 was first released as part of Gwen Stefani’s collection earlier in the year. It’s another one of the mega mattes, and it’s a beautiful true red with a pink undertone. This is such a wonderful summer shade, and I can’t wait to wear this with a tan and nude eye.

Urban Decay Vice Big Bang

Big Bang is one of the Metallized shades, and it’s basically all my Barbie-lips dreams come true! It’s a super shimmery magenta pink which is perfect if you’re looking for real cool toned pink. The shimmer in the formula is a little chunky, but the formula is really comfortable to wear, and it’s surprisingly long-wearing.

Urban Decay Vice Firebird

Firebird is another colour that was first released as part of Gwen Stefani’s collection and has a cream finish. This one is beautifully smooth to apply, and the colour payoff is amazing, and it feels like such a glamorous choice of colour to wear!

Urban Decay Vice Backtalk

Last up is Backtalk, a comfort matte shade, and probably my most reached-for shade from the lineup. It slicks on beautifully, and I’m obsessed with the warm pinky-nude shade. It’s perfect if you’re looking for something to keep you looking polished throughout the summer!

Urban Decay Vice lipsticks are £15 and are available here (UK) and here (US)

 

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick – Naked*

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Naked 1

I’m sure like many people, I’m a devoted follower of Urban Decay’s NAKED range. I have three out of the four palettes, and a handful of the lip glosses, but I had no idea that there was a lipstick available in the shade.

I’ve always been big on lip products, and Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipsticks are absolute winners for me. The mirrored packaging is so glamorous tucked into my makeup bag, and the formula of the lipstick is the perfect mix of creamy and balmy.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Naked 4

Naked is an absolutely stunning pinky-nude shade which is a complete work horse of a lipstick. It’s the perfect shade for day when I want a subtle, natural look thanks to the flattering pink tones. I usually just slick the lipstick on direct from the tube, and I just love the subtle sheen and flattering wash of colour.

I’ve also found that the Naked Revolution Lipstick is the perfect choice for evenings when I’m wearing a bolder eye look. No matter how many lashes I apply and how much liner and shadow I slick on, Naked never looks like it’s trying to compete. Instead, it feels like a polished, sophisticated choice which never veers into the dreaded ‘corpse lips’ territory which is always a worry when rocking a nude lip.

 Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked is priced at £15.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
