Simply Lippy Challenge Day 147 | Urban Decay Jean-Michele Basquiat Comfort Matte Lipstick in Shade, Exhibition

Urban Decay’s most recent limited edition collaboration collection with Jean-Michele Basquiat, is one of the most exciting collections to be released in a long time. In fact, I think it’s my favourite collab collection since NARS’ Andy Warhol one from a few years back.


Funny that both my favourite makeup collabs are for two of the world’s most famous artists; I have been a huge fan of Andy Warhol for as long as I can remember –  I’m obsessed with how he took everyday ordinary things and made them seem special and different. 


Jean-Michele came from a similar place with his graffiti style art, and both him and Warhol worked together on many projects, as well as having a close friendship.


So, as you can imagine, when this collab was announced a few weeks back, I was so frickin’ excited to get my hands on it because I just knew the shades and pigments would be insane! And that, they are.


While I’ll be reviewing the blush palette in a separate review, for today’s lipstick choice, I opted for this amazing pink / purple from the collab called Exhibition and it is simply divine.


Comfort Matte finishes are my favourite of all the Urban Decay lipstick finishes so from the beginning I knew I would love this. The formula is incredibly creamy, and the pigment is to die for. With just one layer, you get a very dramatic colour pop and I love how this shade is something different to my usual choices.


Because of the semi-matte finish, the lasting power on this lipstick is brilliant. I put it on early in the morning, had breakfast and spent the day in the spa, and even after the jacuzzi and steam room, it was still pretty much in tact!


I knew I would love this, and I wasn’t wrong; it’s such a gorgeous shade especially if you’re looking for something a bit different and the colour pay off is everything you want it to be and more. 


Do you like collaboration products? Sometimes they can be a bit gimmicky, but I can assure you, this one is definitely worth it!
