Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Swatches
I got my hands on 25 of the 30 new Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks, so I decided to do some swatches for you. I was really, really excited when I heard they were launching liquid lipsticks (in both comfort matte and metallized finishes), and had pretty high hopes. They are a little hit and miss, with some of them being a little streaky while others are evenly pigmented. I had a harder time with the darker shades and a few of the metallized, which require a little more finesse than I was willing to endure (given that I was swatching 25 shades!) or perhaps another coat to make the color even. But then you might run into that icky thick feeling, so just keep that in mind — and know that some of them take quite awhile to dry. For me, the hits were mostly in the pinks and rosy shades. My favorites (in terms of shade and finish) were Backtalk, Firebird, Naked, Rapture, ZZ, and Amulet. Crimsons is also a stunning shade of red, but I need to give it another go when I’m not pushing my sensitive lips to the absolute limit. It was one of the last ones I tried, and it felt a little thick but that may also be because I was on 24 of 25.
My advice to you is that if you love a color but are unsure of this formula’s results, check out its lipstick counterpart (most are available in lipstick form). But that’s not to say that I want to dissuade you from trying these out; there are several that I can see myself wearing frequently, like the favorites I mentioned above. I just don’t need to wear 714 in liquid form when the lipstick version is heaven sent, you know what I mean?
Which of the Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick swatches are your favorites? Have you tried any, or are you planning on picking any up? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
