Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Matte Finish Review + Swatches

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Review


Advance Happy Weekend Everybody! I must have been asleep or in a coma (LOL) when Urban Decay released the liquid version of their fan-favorite and ever-popular Vice Lipsticks, which are simply called The Vice Liquid Lipsticks (0.17 oz: $18). They come in two finishes, which are matte and metallic. Since I’m a huge fan of matte liquid lipsticks, this review is gonna be all about the mattes.

I reviewed the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks before, seen HERE, and I really like those lippies. They also come in different finishes and they have incredible pigments. I was such a fan of those that I’ve always wanted them in liquid versions and was hoping that Urban Decay might release them soon. Unbeknownst to me, they’ve already released the Vice Liquid Lipsticks, and here I was, always late in the news. Somehow, I don’t know why it occurred to me that the UD Vice Liquid Lipsticks were all in metallic finishes. But anyway, since finding out that they also have some matte ones, I thought of getting a few. Unfortunately, by the time I realized all this, I was a bit a little too late. Most of my preferred matte finish shades are now discontinued, so I was left with only a couple of shades to choose from. Anyways, I picked the ones that I really like and here they are.

AmuletMatte Brick Rose. This is a shimmery brick rose shade that you’d think it belongs to the metallic finish group, but this dries matte. Somehow, it has a metallic effect since there’s a decent amount of glitter in it. It can be quite reflective but not necessarily shiny. I thought this was gonna be a flashy shade for me, obviously because of the glitters, but I actually like this because it adds dimension to the lips. This is a unique and gorgeous shade for sure.


BacktalkMatte Mauve Nude-Pink. This pretty shade can work for every skin tone because it’s a nice blend of muted nude mauvy pink. It’s a pretty shade that won’t’ make you look too pale, and it adds just a bit of rosy touch to the lips.


1993Matte Medium Brown. Love this SO ’90’s shade. It’s a sexy and edgy shade for light, medium, and dark skin tones. It’s so well-pigmented and it makes your pout truly gorg.

Compared to the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks


I might have been late in reviewing these liquid lipsticks, but I’m glad I found them, it’s better late than never, right? As for the formulations and the shades, these Vice Liquid Lipsticks don’t have a lot of love from the reviews at Sephora, that’s because even though these are very well-pigmented, there’s something wrong with the formulation. I’m not sure if all the shades are like that, but I noticed that these liquid lipsticks tend to feel sticky while they’re settling on the lips, and if you close your lips together, you’d feel them sticking to each other. It’s weird and it’s kinda annoying. Also, it takes a while for these liquid lipsticks to set, which reminds of Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips, reviewed HERE. They both have beautiful and well-pigmented shades, but the formula is somewhat sticky.

Other than that, these UD Vice Liquid Lipsticks have such good color payoff to them. They apply as creamy and not that streaky, and the scent is almost indiscernible. I like its sleek and shiny packaging with a pretty sturdy applicator. It does a good job at precisely lining and applying colors on the lips. Overall, these lipsticks last a long time for me, though some shades may feel kinda drying on the lips, and the sticky formula needs to be improved.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip Review

colourpop ultra satin lip review


Thanksgiving is almost here! I just love Holiday seasons, not only for the festivities, but also because it’s one of the best time of the year to prep yourself for dinners and gatherings. I dunno about y’all, but I like to take extra lippies for touchups after gobbling that gigantic turkey, LOL! We all do, right? Guess what, my favorite lippies nowadays are from none other than the affordable yet reliable Colourpop Ultra Satin Lipsticks

Remember my review of their Ultra Matte Lipsticks? (found HERE.) Well, I wouldn’t say that I was really in love Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Lip because the formulation was too drying and the colors I’ve tried turned out to be too pigmented and quite dull. But guess what, their Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips are very interesting, in fact, the formulation is nothing short of amazing. I love how creamy and non-drying they are unlike the Ultra Mattes. They do transfer quite a lot but somehow the formula stays in place and it stays for quite a long time.There’s no discernible scent and the colors are really really pretty. What I love most about the lippies is that they give a full-lip effect on the lips because they’re so creamy and slightly thick in consistency. They do take a couple more minutes to settle on your lips but they are quite staining even though a lot less than the Colourpop Ultra Mattes.

  • Baracuda: Warm Deepened Rose. This shade can take you from day to night and it’ll work on any skin tone.
  • Frick N’ Frack: Rosy Terracotta. Reminds me of Kat Von D Lolita II. Gorgeous and wearable terracotta shade.
  • Calypso: Mid-tone Pinky Nude. The perfect mid shade and my most favorite of them all. There’s something about this shade that makes it so wearable. Perhaps it’s the right mix of nude pinky-brown. Like your lips but bettah!
  • Echo Park: Warm Peachy Nude. A bestseller and truly everyone’s favorite. A great nude for all skin tone.
  • Dopey: Dusty Mauve. The perfect mauve shade for those who wants to enhance their naturally pigmented lips.

I didn’t really expect to like the Ultra Satin Lippies from Colourpop at all. But all it took was one swipe to change my mind. Now, I am absolutely in love with it, and for its price point, it definitely won’t break the bank. So you guys should really give this a try. Oh wait, what? you already did. I know…


Happy Thanksgiving All!
