It’s been forever since I’ve written a product review and I’m so excited to finally do this one! The whole entire world knows that I am completely and utterly obsessed with red liquid lipstick. (And I have written many posts on it, see here, here and even here.) I just love it!
So earlier this year, when I saw that Urban Decay were releasing their Vice Liquid Lipsticks, I was sold. I’m a huge fan of their eye shadow palettes and primer, so was keen to try these.
Urban Decay released the Vice Liquid Lipstick range early in 2017 with 30 different shades in two different finishes (matte and metallized). They cost £15.50 for 5.3ml of product, which is comparable with other liquid lipsticks. The packaging is pretty standard, it’s nothing special, but is functional – which is all that matters really.
Due to the sheer number of shades in the range, there is something for everyone as bright, bold and neutral colours have been included. Something that was missing when Chanel released their range of liquid lipsticks. Predictably, I settled on Trap Queen as it is a warm red, my signature colour, but this one is a bit different. It has small particles of gold glitter to give it a metallized finish. Which was music to my ears, as to be honest, I’m a bit over matte lips at the moment. I want a bit of glamour and shine.
Disappointingly, I didn’t really notice the glitter on my lips at all and it was difficult to pick up on camera in the swatch. But this doesn’t detract for the beautiful colour, which is a nice warm red. However, if you’re only buying Trap Queen for the metallized effect, try another product. It’s too subtle.
I didn’t let the lack of visible glitter put me off and found that it was a great colour for the daytime, which it might not have been if the glitter had been more obvious. The colour is just beautiful and looks lovely on. I felt that it brightened my face and I got lots of compliments that I looked well even though I felt exhausted as usual!
In a nutshell, Trap Queen will survive the apocalypse even if you do not. This stuff does not budge. I kissed my kids, ate lunch and dinner and let my 2 year old wipe her hands over my mouth (whilst trying not to think where they’d been) and it did not move at all. It lasted so well and didn’t transfer onto anything. I was very impressed.
I applied it around 10am and it was still going strong at 3pm. Some of the shine was lost but the colour was still there. It faded beautifully and left a strong stain type effect as opposed to being patchy. Extra bonus point.
Overall, I loved this! It was amazing and I’ve been wearing it lots since testing it out. The main thing I look for after the shade is longevity and this just is amazing. I’m definitely going to check out more shades, my first choice being a nude.
Have you tried these? What are your thoughts?
