Every makeup junkie/addict has two or more products from Urban Decay, for me this brand has always been on my lust list but was unfortunately a bit difficult to get in S.A.Urban Decay (UD) is a prestigious makeup brand in the US and according to most reviews I’ve read, their products are the bomb.I was so excited when UD opened its stores this year in Sandton City, and to pile on the good news word on the street is that this brand might be soon available at selected Foschini stores.
On my visit to Sandton City, I popped into the UD store for some product browsing and swatching lol.I decided to try their Vice lipstick.The Vice lipsticks are available in 100 shades and 6 indulgent finishes.The shade I picked up is Checkmate, which is a soft (comfort) matte bright pink shade perfect for summer.One of the things that really stood out for me about this lipstick was the packaging. OMG, so sleek, classy with that ‘buy me finish’.
Now if you’re a matte lipstick fan, you probably know how they can be drying on the lips.I found this lippie not drying at all,the formula was great for a matte lipstick and I mostly forgot that I had it on unlike other matte lipsticks I’ve used before.The pigmentation was bomb!!This applied very well on my lips and I only applied two layers and set it with some powder as I wanted it to stay longer.
After breakfast,tea and lunch, I was left with a nice tint on my lips.I wore this around 7:00 in the morning and only reapplied around 2pm.In terms of the pricing,this retails for R230 which is the same price range as MAC lipsticks.I’m really impressed with this lipstick,the pigmentation,longevity and also the formula.This is worth every penny and I’m definitely getting more.Big ups to Urban Decay?
