Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Review & Swatches
MEGA MATTE: super-intense matte
COMFORT MATTE: our creamiest matte
CREAM: the original: creamy, badass luxury
METALLIZED: cream with a high level of pearl
SHEER: a punch of color with a sheer, shiny finish
I got to try 4 of the finishes but I was especially hesitant about the Metallized finish (more about that below).
Compared to the other creams, I was disappointed in Rock Steady (Cream) and when I applied it, it was slightly patchy and I had to layer it up a few times to even out the color.
Like the name states, the Mega Matte is very matte and is more drying. Straight from the bullet, the Mega Matte skipped on my lips a little, so using a lip brush was much easier to apply the lipstick.
Comfort Matte is more up my alley, it feels creamier and it applied more smoothly. My lips have texture to them, so the Comfort Matte didn’t highlight my wrinkles and overall, it looked more flattering on my lips.
Naked and Backtalk (Cream) are my two favorites out of lipsticks I received and the texture is gorgeous. The texture is so moisturizing and creamy, which is great for everyday use and is pigmented enough to coat my lips.
I actually thought I’d hate the Metallized finishes since it reminded me of the 90s, but I think for the right look, this finish works! In the picture below, I created more dimension to my lips using a lip liner and Conspiracy in the center of my lips. I don’t think I could pull off just wearing a Metallized lipstick by itself since it’s too sheer (and too frosty for my taste), but I love the effect it gives when layered.
The lipsticks also have great staying power and are really comfortable to wear throughout the day.
