New Shinies!!!! Today I’ve got a few of the new Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks to blog about but before I start I just need to apologise for the radio silence. Life here just got really crazy and I haven’t had any time for blogging at all! This has meant that this blog post is much later than planned sadly and the Vice Lipstick collection actually launched last month! I’m so sorry!
Anyway, the Vice Lipstick collection is huge news. The collection contains 100 lipsticks in six finishes. Mega Matte, Comfort Matte, Cream, Metallized, Sheer and Sheer Shimmer. This is has got to be the biggest lipstick collection ever hasn’t it? And there is most definitely something for everyone. At £15 each, these feel like absolute luxury thanks to the metallic cases that close with a really good click.
I’ve got five shades to share with you today, from left to right is Big Bang, 714, Backtalk, Firebird and Pandemonium.
Swatches in the same order:
Starting with Big Bang.
Big bang is a metallized finish. And it really does look metallic, what this actually is is glitter though, lots and lots of glitter and as your lipstick wears away, you’ll be left with very sparkly lips indeed. Its a bit much for the school run but the colour is absolutely beautiful and the effect is gorgeous, especially for someone much younger than me! Despite the huge amounts of glitter in this shade, it feels smooth and not at all gritty.
Next is 714.
714 is a Mega Matte finish. The colour is glorious, and incredibly bright red that is extremely comfortable to wear. It applies easily and wears for quite literally hours and hours. Just gorgeous and very striking.
Next we have Backtalk.
Backtalk is a Comfort Matte finish in a mauvey nude shade. The finish is satin-y and applies beautifully! So creamy and smooth and a beautiful everyday shade. Despite being a nude shade, its a little bit different, perhaps because of it’s matte finish. Very comfortable and wearable.
Next is Firebird.
What a colour! Firebird is a vivid fuchsia, with blue tones and a very subtle pearl effect. Officially the pearl is fuchsia, but I definitely see something purpley/blue in there and its gorgeous. Wears really well (like all of these), applies like a dream, looks gorgeous, what’s not to love?!
Finally is Pandemonium.
Pandemonium is a red toned purple in a Mega Matte finish. While I absolutely love this shade, it was the most tricky to work with and a bit patchy to apply, I had to go over my lips several times and I still didn’t feel it was fully opaque all over. However I was happy with the finished result and I would still happily wear, I just think its a worth mentioning as compared to 714 (also a Mega Matte finish) this is much drier. Beautiful shade though!
So that’s a quick look at just a few of the Vice Lipsticks, there are of course 95 more shades to finish and I’ve managed to create a wishlist of about 6 must-haves with another 20 would-like-to-haves!
I think at £15 a pop I could get one a month easily! Beautiful lipsticks and just so exciting for lipstick and Urban Decay fans. Do be sure to head to your local counter or have a browse of the range online here, the colour range will blow your mind!
If you’ve already purchased any of these, let me know which shades you got so I can check them out!
