Urban Decay VICE lipstick collection review with swatches

August 30, 2016

When Urban Decay releases a new collection I always get very excited. Why? Because they always bring something new, they always try to take our makeup game to the next level. New textures, finishes, new formulas, brave colors. This time they represented a new lipstick collection called Vice. What's so special about this collection? How about that it has 100 different shades and 6 different textures.  100 different shades sounds like heaven - now without a problem you will be able to find that perfect shade that would suit you. 6 different finishes ( mega matte, comfort matte, cream, sheer, sheer shimmer, metallized ) means that even the most picky person will find what they were searching for. Now let's take a look at 5 lipsticks that I got from this collection.

Like I said, I received 5 lipsticks : 2 mega matte, one comfort matte, one cream and one metallized lipstick. I have tried on all of these lipsticks already and have to say, that all of them look extraordinary and amazing on the lips even though it looks quite scary in the packaging - don't be afraid and try it on, you will be surprised!

The first one I tried is called Backtalk and it's a comfort matte finish lipstick. The colour is perfect for every day and the texture feels amazing, I mean during the day I even forgot that I had lipstick on, just when I took a glance in the mirror I saw that I still have it on. Oh and it stayed on for around 6 hours and during that time I was drinking coffee, tea, eating lunch, snacks and etc. So they are really long lasting lipsticks.

The second one is called Big Bang and it is a metallized lipstick. It's made only for the bravest, thats how I would call this lipstick. I can imagine wearing it on new years eve or some party, or photoshoot, or even for evening out paired out together with another lipstick, you know like an ombre effect or what not. The texture is a bit weird though, since it's metallized, you can really feel the glitter on your lips, but after a while you get use to it and can't really feel any discomfort. It stays on for around 4-5 hours. 

This beautiful fuchsia colour lipstick is called Firebird and it has a cream finish. I love this colour a lot. When you look at it, it looks more like a burgundy, or deep red with a bit of purple colour, but when you apply it you get this beautiful bright fuchsia color with a tint of purple. This lipstick is very creamy, it applies smoothly, doesn't dry your lips at all. Stays as well for around 4-5 hours.

I was never a huge fan of red lipsticks or red nail polishes. I don't know why, but I just had this feeling that red color doesn't really suit me that well. But I decided to give a try to this mega matte finish lipstick in colour 714 and I kinda liked how it looked on my lips. I love that its a very matte colour. It applies well, stays on for 6 hours for sure.

Last but not least - looks like the craziest colour of all, but for sure one of my top faves fom these 5! It is another mega matte lipstick in colour Pandemonium. It is a very beautiful deep, dark purple colour. It was scary to apply it, but once I did, I really loved the result. With cat eyes makeup this lipstick made me look fierce and confident. So I will definitely wear it in autum / winter time on itself and with other color lipsticks to create a beautiful ombre effect. 

Here are all the swatches on my hand and on my lips as well. Also I want to mention that these lipsticks are very highly pigmented, they even stain your lips. Which for me is just great haha. After I removed my makeup, washed my face, there was still this beautiful naturally looking red tint left on my lips. Even in the morning I woke up with a bit of colour stained on my lips. So they looked very puffy, healthy and just naturally beautiful. 

If you would ask me, I would say that these lipsticks are totally worth their price. Each of them are 19.99Eur and you can get them in Vilnius at "Douglas" store or from their online shop. If you want to get it online, but you are not sure which color to pick, which color will suit you the best - try their "Vice Lipstick" app and find the best shade for yourself!
