URBAN DECAY COSMETICS – VICE LIPSTICK – $28 AUD
You may be familiar with the old Urban Decay Revultion lipsticks with the gun-metal packaging. Urban Decay have done away with those and now have the newly launched VICE LIPSTICKS in 6 different formulas. The formulas include SHEER, METALIZED, CREAM, SHEER SHIMMER, COMFORT MATTE AND MEGA MATTE. I have read mixed thoughts on the new packaging. Size wise its the same as the GWEN STAFANI Lipsticks. The revolution lipsticks were much slimmer and taller. I personally preferred the look of the Revolution Lipsticks but I do like that they seem to be trying to keep all of their different lipstick releases the same size. The Revolution lipsticks were at least $5 more expensive and they had less product. So the new slightly cheaper feeling packaging has allowed for a better price point and more product, HOW CAN YOU COMPLAIN! I like that. I do really like this packaging, I think it’s still holds true to URBAN DECAY’S style. NOW FOR SWATCHES.
BARFLY (Cream) – PALE PEACHY NUDE
NAKED (Cream) – MUTED PINK NUDE
INTERROGATE (Cream) – CINNAMON CORAL NUDE
Barfly is to light for my medium squinting alone but It’s really nice over a darker liner or used in the centre of the lips, Fair skin girls, this is your nude!!! Naked actually pulls quite pink on me and isn’t completely opaque. A really easy to wear colour for anyone. Interrogate is a really nice orangey nude, I like this over a brown liner to try to Neutralise it a little.
MANIC (CREAM) – ROSE WINE
STREAK (CREAM) – CORAL PINK
DISOBEDIANT (CREAM) – COOL PINK
OBSESSED (SHEER) – SHEER COOL PINK
BIG BANG (METALIZED) – BRIGHT PINK SPARKLE
SHEER ANARCHY (SHEER) – COOL FUSCHIA
I Really like Manic, It’s different to anything I own, I think its good for someone who can’t decide on red or pink and want something that isn’t to bright. Streak is SO PRETTY its a really nice flamingo pink shade, perfect for summer. Obsessed is basically the sheer version of disobedient. I really do not like Big Bang. It’s quite sheer and kind of chunky. This is the one shade that I absolutely do not like and do not recommend. Sheer anarchy is a really nice shade, If you like fuchsia pinks and you want something easy to wear and glossy then this is for you!
TILT (COMFORT MATTE) – BRIGHT ORANGE
SLOWBURN (SHEER) – ORANGE RED
EZ (CREAM) – BRIGHT RED ORANGE
69 (CREAM) – BRIGHT RED WITH PINK UNDERTONE
PLAID (SHEER) – DEEP BERRY
SHAME (CREAM) – VAMPY BERRY WINE
I think every makeup lover needs at least 1 red lipstick. Urban Decay have HEAPS to choose from in all different shades and finishes. TILT is a really nice orange-red, more orange than red though. Slowburn is good for someone who wants that orange-red shade but just a sheer wash of colour. EZ is the redder and creamier version of TILT. 69 (rrruuuuuude lol) is a really pretty Fuchsia red that I LOVE on olive skin with dark hair and even with blonde hair. I love this colour. Plaids is a deep Berry but very sheer. This colour is really pretty. Shame in my opinion is nearly identical to MAC Rebel, Rebel is more matte and has slightly more purple undertone.
VENOM (CREAM) – BRIGHT PLUM
PANDEMONIUM (MEGA MATTE) – BRIGHT PURPLE
BLACKMAIL (COMFORT MATTE) – DEEP BERRY RED
LIQUID (SHEER) – BROWN PLUM
Now I know a few of these could be grouped in different categories other than purple ,but just work with me. Venom is VERY similar to the shade SHAME it just has more purple undertones and may not be as dark. Pandemonium is an awesome mega matte purple, if purple lipstick is your thing you will love this. Blackmail is that awesome fall shade. A really dark wine, really vampy. Liquid is one i definitely won’t wear its kind of blah to me.
PERVERESION (COMFORT MATTE). Last but not least is Perversion. I LOVE THIS. this is a comfort matte, completely opaque and matte with a slight leathery shine to it. The most perfect black lipstick. If you are in Kapa Haka and you are looking for a black lipstick, this is the one. If you just love black lipstick this is the one. MY FAV!
Now you guys know I have barely been trialing these for a week and I feel like to have a really good review you need at least two weeks. I have also found that though there is 6 formulas the formula can vary between the shades. I want to give you a quick run down of each formula and what I have found the lasting ability and formula to be like.
SHEER – The sheer formulas are just that, a sheer wash of colour with a glossy finish.
CREAM – these provide and even mostly opaque finish. I found a few shades are less opaque than others on first swipe bu they are build able. These slide on effortlessly and have a nice creamy shine finish.
COMFORT MATTE – These shades are opaque and glide on creamy. the finish is matte with slight sheen. Very similar to the cream finish just slightly less sheen and a little more staying power.
MEGA MATTE – Very matte yet not drying. these are slightly thicker than the comfort matte formula. I have read that a few people don’t like that they don’t just slide across you lips, there is a little drag with these. For me that’s just a given with a mega matte formula.
METALIZED – I have only tried one Metalled finish and that was big bang (the shade I hated) i have heard that the metalized finishes vary, some more sheer like big bang and some opaque and metallic.
SHEER SHIMMER – I don’t have any sheer shimmer shades to review for you.
If I find any reviews of shades and formulas I don’t own from blogs that I trust the honesty and reviews of the blogger I will link them below so that you can compare formulas and shades.
As you can see i have been gifted some of the amazing lip pencils also I will have some swatches up for you tomorrow night so stay tuned!!
