Two weeks ago, I did a review on the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Sample Kit that I got from Sephora. If you haven’t read the first part yet, you can check it out here.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I am not an expert with regards to makeup. This is just me having some fun while trying out the different shades included in the sample kit.
Today, I decided to provide my feedback on the third panel of the sample kit – the Neutrals. I’ll do the reds and browns last so make sure to watch out for that.
Here’s a closer look at the third panel.
Conspiracy (Metallized) – is described as plum-bronze shimmer. It is a little bit sheer but not as sheer as Big Bang so I didn’t have to use a lot of it; but you still have to layer it on to get the color to come out. I personally didn’t like the color. It is a little bit sticky, just like Big Bang.
Naked (Cream) – is described as nude-pink. This reminds me of NARS Orgasm; I actually put both side-by-side and found that the shade is really similar. One thing I really love about this is how it is highly pigmented for a neutral shade and how I don’t need to use a concealer underneath unlike when I’m wearing neutral lipstick shades from Mac. It is very creamy and easy to apply but a little bit sticky. This is the shade that I would want to wear when I want just a little bit of color in my lips.
Rapture (Cream) – is described as dusty rose. I LOVE this color! I think I have found another shade that I can use for my no-makeup look. I personally think that this shade works really well with my skin tone. It accentuates my lips but still looks natural. Just like the others, it is very creamy and easy to apply. It is a little bit sticky but with a shade this pretty, I would’t mind at all!!!
Backtalk (Comfort Matte) – is described as mauve-nude pink. Looking at the sample kit, it seems like the shade is closer to Rapture but when applied it really is closer to Naked. Just like the others, it is creamy so it is very easy to apply and still highly pigmented despite it being a neutral shade.
Amulet (Metallized) – is described as metallic brick rose. It is a little bit sheer but you don’t need a lot, unlike Conspiracy. The shade is close to Conspiracy; Amulet is more on the reddish side while Conspiracy is more on the brownish side. Between the two, I liked Amulet better. It is also a little bit sticky.
Stark Naked (Comfort Matte) – is described as light nude. I personally think it doesn’t work for my skin tone as I looked really pale in it. It is very creamy although matte, just like the other matte lipsticks. I like that I didn’t have to use a concealer underneath to get the color to come out.
Zz (Cream) – is described as soft pink-purple. It is a nice shade; light bright pink. I think the shade is similar to Mac’s Pink Nouveau. It is very easy to apply; it is highly pigmented so you don’t need to layer it on. It is a little bit sticky just like the other shades with cream finish.
Gubby (Metallized) – is described as frosted light pink. It is very sheer so you’re going to need a lot of it to see some color (I probably used 1/4 of the sample). I found it hard to apply because it always appear to be uneven no matter how I tried to fix it; but when it settled, it did appear to even itself out.
My favorites: Naked, Rapture, and Zz.
The formula is really good; all of them are long-wearing and not drying at all even the matte ones. All the colors, except Gubby, are highly pigmented. One thing I really love about the neutral shades is the fact that I didn’t have to use concealer underneath those shades that are really close to your skin tone unlike other brands.
