Urban Decay did something crazy, they said goodbye to all their existing lipsticks! But hold your breath, they repackaged, reformulated and then reintroduced them into the world, in an endless arsenal of 100 shades, six finishes and they are all permanent, so don't fret - they won't be going anywhere anytime soon! And it goes without saying that every lipstick lover freaked out (including myself) and like they say out with the old in with the new... So let me introduce you to 1 of the 100 Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks in Ex-Girlfriend.
Urban Decay Ex-Girlfriend Vice Lipstick £15.00 (not to be confused with Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend) is described as a "nude-rose with pink shimmer and sheer finish" but painted on my pout it a light buildable peachy-brown that has a touch of warmth. Just one swipe lays down enough colour and is not too loud, or too boring and instantly adds some polish. The finish is as described; sheer. The shade has a very slight iridescent pink shimmer, but don't misinterpret the shimmer for chunky glitter, it's a subtle shimmer, rather like MAC's Peach Blossom, that leaves my lips looking shiny and full. It's one of the easiest to wear lipsticks I own. It doesn't drag or skip, has a smooth texture and is comfortable on the lips. In short, it's the kinda a lippy that you don't need a mirror to apply. And due to its formulation of aloe vera, jojoba and avocado oils it nourishes and softens the lips leaving them lightly moisturised. And how can I not mention the newly spruced up version of Urban Decay's original lipstick case? The 100 shades are encased in a light gunmetal barrel, with a gold bottom and shade-matched label - not a bad upgrade eh?
