Buying lipsticks can be a tricky feat, especially when shopping online. I often search for swatches before buying, but it’s rarely an accurate preview of what it will look like on me. Which, of course, means that what it looks like on me is not necessarily what it will look like on any of you. We all have different skin tones and features, and so I decided to start demonstrating swatches on various people. To start our hopefully regular series, we had six readers visit our Brooklyn Brigade studio with photographer Michelle McSwain, to test out six of the new Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks. They’re launching on June 5th and will be available at Urban Decay, Sephora, Nordstrom, Ulta, Beauty.com, and Macy’s, with be 100 shades in six finishes (plus 20 Sephora exclusives) – which is quite an overwhelming amount of lipsticks to choose from! Most of our well-loved favorites are returning (whew!), with a whole lot of brand new additions. Once I have more of them in my possession, I’ll update with additional swatches. For now, here are six of the upcoming shades on six different ladies with different skin tones and features: Daisy, Folu, Sherry , Rosanna , Esther, and Sam. I hope to include more people in the future, so we have an even bigger variation – so please let me know what you’d like to see swatched, next!
