Saved the best for last!
I discovered that Sephora had a special promotion giving out a FREE Urban Decay Lipstick 24-Shade Deluxe Sampler with any $25+ order. So, I jumped on this opportunity to try them out and do some swatches for you!
Going to the store and looking at 100 different shades with several different finishes can be overwhelming, so my goal of this post is to help you decide which colours you may want to try out.
(NOTE: I just found out that the Sephora promo is still going on. To take advantage of it, use the code UDVICES)
As I mentioned in my Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Part 1 and Part 2 posts, I’ve decided to divide up my swatches into three posts (a) so this isn’t the longest post of all times (b) some of the colours left a stain so I didn’t want it to effect the swatches (c) to save my lips from swatch misery.
These are the samples that I was most excited about – the nude-ish section! I liked so many of the colours in this section of the kit that picking my favourites was a tough endeavor.
Why the “+”?
After trying out all these lipsticks, I decided to visit my local drug store to see if there were any colours that I hadn’t swatched that were worth trying on. I fell in love with the colour Trance and decided to purchase it (see swatch and description below).
As I now own a real full Urban Decay Vice lipstick, I can finally show you what the actually packaging and tube look like (yay!).
The tube is very modern and “urban” looking (true to brand). The dark grey metal top/lid looks like it has been hit with a hammer a couple times (not in a bad way lol!). The only negative is that, because the lid covers 95% of the tube, it sometimes get’s stuck and I have to twist and pull hard to get it off, but this has only happened a couple times. Over all, very unique and futuristic looking packaging.
