Video: Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks + Review + Swatches

I recently tried some new lippies Urban Decay sent me to test out from the Vice collection – and all I can say is WOW. The first time in, well – ever, each color actually works on my skin tone and even on my perpetually dry lips. Most lipsticks are just too light, and I can’t do 80% of the matte liquid lipsticks out there because it will be flaking off in minutes. Read my thoughts below, and scroll down to watch the short video clip to see the colors on me, and also see Sophia make her first appearance on my channel!

The Breakdown: 

Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks

Stark Naked (Comfort Matte): Peachy warm nude but not too light

Gubby (Metallized): Frosty and sheer – not in love with it by itself, but it looks great over Stark Naked

Naked (Creamy): Pinky Nude

Backtalk (Comfort Matte): Pinky Mauve

1993 (Comfort Matte): Reddish Brown – not too dark

The Review: 

Let’s start with the packaging because I’m a sucker for pretty details. The luxe bronze and gold case is a nice touch and the stickers on the bottom labeling the color are actually quite accurate!

Next, the formula. I have come to expect quality from Urban Decay, but I really like that the ingredients include a hydrating butter blend, aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils. They also use Illipe butter, derived from Malaysian illipe trees, and vitamins C and E.

Finally, the color. There are many more shades in the Vice collection, but out of these five I love each one. I am inclined towards neutrals most of the time, and these are neutral but still very much on trend. The peachy and pink undertones for the nude shades, and the mauve and reddish brown especially.
