There is something special about the way a great matte lipstick makes your pout appear lush, seductive and beautifully defined. A vivid lipstick free of distracting glitter and shine is show-stopping and Urban Decay’s new matte formula is smoking-hot! Available in eleven badass shades from pink, nude, purple, fuchsia, red and orange you can rock bright hues, classic faves or subtle pigments to match your mood, wardrobe and style.
Sometimes being fashionable can be painful and although we women wear it well and work those high heels the combination of comfort and glam is highly coveted. Although these bold beauties are matte you don’t have to worry about packing backup gloss for dry lip emergencies. The formula is creamy, rich and buttery for long-wear that doesn’t suck the moisture from lips or cause chapping. The luxurious suppleness allows for smooth application without any drag and the fabulous color hugs the contours of your lips for remarkable coverage and plump fullness.
The packaging is almost as good as what’s inside and the pearlescent black tubes are super trendy! They are designed to feel comfortable in your hand and protect the soft lipsticks from breakage.
Blackmail is the deepest color in the collection and although it isn’t for the timid the shade is quite unique.The pigment isn’t a true black, it is has a dark cherry undertone which gives it a subtle wine tinge and makes the shade more wearable. Although this vampy hue may not be for everyone it is quite trendy for fall.
Menace is described as a medium fuchsia pink but it is actually more of a bright pink that is great for all skin tones and seasons.
Aside from the velvety texture and just the right amount of hydration the pigmentation is insane! Just one swipe delivers intense color dispersed seamlessly to shape the lips and brighten the complexion. When wearing such vivacious color I like to prime my lips and use a liner for best results but the lipsticks provide a few hours of gorgeous wear.
Stark Naked is just as pigmented as the other shades but it is very neutral and flesh tone. I’m not sure if it is the perfect nude for my complexion but it does help dial down some of my bold eye makeup creations.
Tilt is a bright orange that effortlessly transitions from summer to fall!
I love a lipstick that nourishes especially in cooler weather and these chic tubes are loaded with lip loving ingredients to keep skin soft. The formula is enriched with avocado, olive and babassu oil for moisture, Malaysian shea butter to condition and vitamins C and E for a healthy dose of antioxidants.
The lipsticks retail for $26.00 each and you can pick them up at Sephora and select Shoppers Drug Mart locations.
Although I don’t care for the term “brows on fleek” I do like the sharp, defined look that has been on trend. Urban Decay has also released the Brow Tamer Flexible Hold Gel to help control even the unruliest brows for a well groomed, polished look. The precise mascara-like brush combs through each hair for a fuller effect and it gives you total control when filling in sparse areas without that stiff, sticky finish. Since my brows don't often stay put this product is definitely a staple in my makeup bag and the lightweight formula keeps hairs in place while sculpting. The gel comes in 5 shades including clear, taupe, natural brown, warm brown and dark. You can pick up your perfect shade for $24.00.
