Recently, I decided to treat myself to one of the new Urban Decay Vice lipsticks and I picked up the shade Backtalk which is a gorgeous mauve pink shade that is definitely a 'my lips but much better' shade. It's a comfort matte which I really like as it has a matte finish but it's not drying to the lips.
Due to me buying this and my mum buying a couple of other items we also got a little booklet of samples from the other shades in the collection. They are separated into pinks, reds and nudes and I decided I'd swatch them all for you so you can see the shades available and what they look like on pasty white skin such as mine. It isn't great for me, however, as swatching them has made me add about 20 different shades to my wishlist and my bank account doesn't appreciate that.
I think this was a great little sample kit and with a good lip brush, you'll get a fair few uses out of the little pots. I love matte shades, but I have warmed towards ZZ which is unlike any shade I own but I can imagine it'll be a great pink for summer time and to take into next year's spring. I own a few shades like Disturbed which is a more berry dark red, but I don't own any like Blackmail which is more purple and something I want in my collection.
These are just 24 of the shades from the Vice collection which boasts over 100 different shades. For £15 each they are more than I usually spend on a lipstick, but the same price as a Mac lipstick and personally, I like the shade range more on these. I don't personally buy Mac and I'm trying to buy more cruelty-free brands and Urban Decay are actually cruelty-free (although owned by a company that aren't cruelty-free) so I do feel a bit better buying their products than I do Mac. I love Backtalk, the shade which I bought and it's so wearable and comfortable. If you're looking to splurge on a lippy, I'd seriously suggest checking these out! Find them here for £15 or through Debenhams or Feel Unique.
