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.

  • Happy 9 Year anniversary to the love of my life @tom_sandberg! Real talk, whoever needs to hear this rn who is struggling to be with the person they love - whether it’s because of what other people think about their race, religion, sexuality, or even status (yes still a thing!) - my advice is - Follow your heart! It’s the *only* thing that matters. It’s the only thing that’s TRUE. Society and other people DO NOT matter. Sorry if that’s aggressive but it’s the truth. Who you wake up next to each day, does matter - a LOT. SO glad I went against a lot of the ‘advice’ well intentioned people gave me, and married this hunky dude who cracks me up and doesn’t take my shit - but loves it regardless. Here’s a series of pics that describe our relationship perfectly- me trying to be hella extra for pics per usual - and him either going along or extremely confused. (Swipe to see the pic where I’m asking him to lift me above his head)
  • Pro tip for moving with kids - especially during summer vacation - figure out your childcare/activities/summer camps BEFORE you move! Trying to do it in the midst of living out of boxes is stressful AF. Unpacking and having tools and other unsafe objects everywhere with a toddler running around is impossible. I went from having childcare two days a week to zero - and finding a great provider is a process that shouldn’t be rushed. We are getting there though, slowly but surely! Since I haven’t had time to take any new pics - here’s another from our trip to the Scottish Highland games this past weekend! I’d throw in a GOT reference but I don’t watch it so I don’t know any of the characters 🙈
  • Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there - and especially to my  @tom_sandberg! We love you! (Even though we forgot to get you a present 🙈)
  • Today was the first day we left our hot mess of a (newly moved in) house - and even though I know it takes time to get settled in, my inner OCD Virgo perfectionist wants the house to be picture perfect by now - but regardless of how much there is to do, we spent some time at the Scottish Highland games today and the kids had a blast - especially with these adorable pups! Swipe to see ❤️
  • Hey guys! It’s been a whirlwind week - we moved out of one house, stayed in a hotel for a few days, then moved in to our new home! (See a tour in my ‘home’ highlights) Currently I’m drowning in a heap of boxes, I haven’t washed my hair in forever, and living on iced coffee and leftover pizza ~ thank you so much to everyone who dm’d me well wishes and even prayers for our family - it means so much to  us! 🙏🏾💕
  • #ad Almost done packing weee! Glad I have @SecretDeodorant’s #AluminumFree Deodorant with me for my more relaxed days! It's dye, paraben, and aluminum free PLUS glides on clear and dry! Watch my stories to see me do a skin-feel test.
  • Can’t seem to shake the funk im in after starting watching @ava’s ‘When They See Us’ on @netflix - I can only watch a little at a time because it really affects me hard - I posted about it in my stories and SO many of you agree and shared with me you cried while watching it. I like to keep things light around here but I just want to say if you haven’t already - watch it - it’s so important that we all face reality and not live in our own bubbles. Hopefully the increased awareness will lead to actual systemic changes. *end rant*
  • My favorite girl in her cute Eid dress from grandma! We celebrated today with family and just made it easy on ourselves and went to Chuck E Cheese ~ p.s. this will probably be our last pic in front of this door 😫😫#eidoutfit #mommyandme #ansabjahangirstudio
  • Feeling like I’m floating into Eid in this gorgeous cape suit - my second Eid look thanks to @basimmichelle - Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating! Let’s eat! 🍴 #basimmichelle #eidoutfit #pssEid
