Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks

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.

Conspiracy - metallized bronze shade with plum tones
Naked - cream nude/pink shade
Rapture - cream pink shade with more mauve tones
Backtalk - comfort matte shade with pink/mauve tones (this is the one I purchased)
Amulet - metallized bronze with nudes tones that Conspiracy
Stark Naked - comfort matte with nude tones that will suit warmer skin tones than my own
ZZ - cream shade with very pink tones
Gubby - metallized shade with light peachy tones

Seismic - sheer shimmer plum shade
Menace - comfort matte shade that is a very bright pink with blue undertones
Pandemonium - mega matte shade in a vibrant purple
Big Bang - metallized pink which is very sheer and contains glitter particles
Jilted - cream pink shade that has red undertones and appears more red on my skin
Sheer Anarchy - sheer pink shade
Firebird - cream fuschia shade, similar to Menace but different finish
Psycho - comfort matte pink shade that isn't too bright with redder tones and glitter flecks

Rock Steady - cream shade with pink undertones 
Disturbed - comfort matte in a true red berry shade
Manic - cream peach shade with darker tones
Blackmail - comfort matte shade which is more plum than Disturbed
Gash - cream red shade which leans darker on my skin
EZ - cream red shade with orange undertones 
714 - mega matte shade which is a true red
Snitch - sheer peachy shade that leans towards coral 

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.

Which shade is your favourite?

Til' next time! XOXO
