Urban Decay Ruby Rose Collection - #Lipstickismyvice

Urban Decay have released a HUNDRED! lipsticks old and new, with Ruby Rose as the face of the launch, I was very excited to be sent five stunning shades from the collection, I just knew they were going to be amazing and as you can imagine with 100 lipsticks you'd have lot's of beautiful shades and finishes to make your little hearts flutter! 

The Vice Collection combines everything from new shades to cult favourites you thought you'd never return and several shades which were inspired by other lip products, Eyeshadows and Eye Pencils.

Encased in their iconic Urban Decay packaging, vice lipsticks come in a beautiful gunmetal bullet-like casing with a gold base the stamped lettering adds a little something extra. In true Urban Decay style, each lipstick also features the embossed UD.

The five shades I received are -

BackTalk - is a Comfort Matte finish and is described as being a mauve/pink nude lipstick with cool undertones, I'd say it had a slight satin finish, certainly a shade that anyone can wear. This is my pick of the bunch as I'm more of a neutral lip lover - sorry! 

714 - this shade was originally released in the Gwen Stefani collection, it is such a stunning shade. With a Mega Matte finish, 714 is bold, it is bright and it is described as being a medium-dark red with warm orange undertones, it is a stunning shade and I did enjoy wearing it.

Firebird - is a cream finish and is described as being a deep fuchsia with cool blue undertones which just gives it a perfect finish, due to the blue it brightens teeth making them look whiter, this is my favourite bright shade and again was in Gwen's collection.

Pandemonium - is a Mega Matte finish and is a very dark, almost red toned purple which has a satin finish.  I'm on the fence with this one, it is definitely out of my comfort zone! But the lipstick itself is highly pigmented and lovely to apply.

Big Bang - is a metallized finish and is described as being a bright pink sparkle shade. It is a raspberry pink shade with quite subtle, cool undertones and it has a light pink micro-glitter which reflects amazingly in the light. A gorgeous sparkly lippie that feels comfortable on your lips, I couldn't feel any glitter particles, this is one pretty looking shade. 

At just £15 a lipstick and with 100 shades to choose from there are shades for everyone whether your mood is looking for bold brights, Vampy or subtle neutral shades, they are available in 6 different finishes, 
  • Mega Matte — super intense matte
  • Comfort Matte — their creamiest matte
  • Cream — the original creamy luxury formula
  • Metallized — cream with a high level of pearl pigments
  • Sheer — a punch of colour, with a sheer, shiny finish
  • Sheer Shimmer — slightly transparent finish with floating pearl and a smooth texture.
Urban Decay have been on fire this year and have released lot's of great new products, I have a few new releases from the Naked skin range which I'm currently putting to the test.

What will you be running out to buy from the Ruby Rose collection?
