Sneak Peek: Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks Photos & Swatches — The Light Pinks

A short and sweet collection of the lighter pink/pink-leaning lighter shades (more beiges and true pinks still to come!) of the new Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) shades. It is a new formula that will debut on June 5th. It will have 120 shades total, with 20 of those shades exclusively available at Sephora (subsequently, Sephora will not have 20 shades–each retailer will have 100 shades in total). There are six finishes, and some you’ll recognize; Cream = the original Revolution formula, Comfort Matte = the Matte Revolution formula, and Sheer/Sheer Shimmer = the Sheer Revolution formula. I hope to make some good progress on editing the remaining photos today, so stay tuned for more! 🙂 Thank you for your patience!

There are six finishes, and some you’ll recognize; Cream = the original Revolution formula, Comfort Matte = the Matte Revolution formula, and Sheer/Sheer Shimmer = the Sheer Revolution formula. As you might imagine, 120 is a beastly number of shades to photograph, swatch, and edit (let alone review–I will be reviewing shades from the different finishes well in advance of the launch date, but I definitely will not have all reviewed by the 5th but will work toward eventual completion!). I’m going to preview swatches in color groups, which is sort of how I have them arranged/ordered. I haven’t even finished swatching all 120 yet (!) — I just started editing some of the photos I took yesterday, and purples are first! I hope to post a few groups tomorrow as I’ll spend most of today editing photos.

Each of our retailers will carry 100 SHADES of Vice Lipstick—making this our biggest lineup yet. Our shade range has it all: Bold brights. Dark, sexy shades. Super-versatile neutrals. With so much variety it’ll make your head spin, there’s something for everyone—from new shades to cult favorites you thought you’d never see again. Several shades were inspired by other UD lip products (and even our Eyeshadows and Eye Pencils!).

The pigment load is insane! Just one swipe provides an unbelievable laydown of color. Every shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels amazing! Our proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ gives the formula its super-creamy texture, rich payout and superior color dispersion.
Yummy butter blend comforts, hydrates and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, never dry. Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado and abassu oils nourish and soften lips. Illipe butter (derived from Malaysian illipe trees) provides long-lasting moisture. Vitamin C and vitamin E provide a hit of antioxidants.

Line and prime with the perfect match. It’s the ultimate pair for ultra long wear. 50 Lip Pencils.

Urban Decay x Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipsticks (Part 2)

Urban Decay Mirana Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “matte berry with tonal shimmer.” It’s a deep burgundy with cool undertones and ruby micro-shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, lightweight texture that had just a bit more slip than I’d think is ideal for such a deep shade. Some color gathered into lip lines, and as it wasn’t totally opaque, it appeared uneven in places. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). Kat Von D Mercy (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Musky Amethyst (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipsticks (Part 1)

Urban Decay Alice Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “sheer nude with pink shift.” It’s a light-medium peachy-orange with warm undertones and iridescent pink shimmer. The warmer base paired with the finer, cooler shimmer made it harder to dupe, and the sheer coverage will make it one of those shades that can look different from person to person. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and moderately hydrating, though it only lasted for two and a half hours on me. Chanel Jersey Rose (DC, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Bellini (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.80 oz.) includes twenty eyeshadows–all “brand new” according to Urban Decay–arranged by character, going down in columns. Visually, it doesn’t seem like an immediately comprehensive palette, but I think you can get a variety of looks out of it afterall, though they will skew warm or otherwise brighter and more colorful. There are a couple of shades that seem more than similar to past shades released by the brand (Duchess is the worst offender). I wish they would have opted for either Looking Glass/Lily/Royal Flush and added a light and more mid-tone beige or taupe shade for transition and highlighting (on different skin tones). The more shimmery shades in the palette were really nice, but the more colorful, more matte shades were dusty and thin and require primer to apply well (personally, I didn’t find UD’s primer sufficient–they needed a stark white base). Worth noting, the colorful mattes have a thinner consistency that makes them less blendable next to the denser shimmers (there’s a disconnect in how they smooth over one another). Dream On really only functions if used with a damp brush or over an adhesive base. The third row is exceptionally good, and I really wish the rest of the palette was that impressive, so it leaves me with a myriad of feelings, because there are some really amazing shades in the palette… and some real misses. The palette will be available at Urban Decay on May 1st and other retailers to follow after that.
