For all us lipstick fanatics, I don’t think there’s any better feeling than when you rediscover just how much you love a lipstick. For me today, that’s Urban Decay’s vice cream lipstick. For years I have loved the formula of this and no matter how much I wear it, it never gets old.
Obviously with my challenge this year, there has been less time for wearing my favourite lippies, in fact, I’ve missed some of them a lot – especially for events or nights out when I’ve really wanted to wear them. But today, I tried out a new shade in one of my favourite formula’s and let me tell you, a new love affair has begun.
This year I discovered a love for rose shade lipsticks that I never had before, and this particular one, might just be my favourite after Make Up For Ever’s Rose Wood shade which I wore back at the beginning of the year.
Apart from the gorgeous rose shade, these lipsticks have incredible pigment. They are full coverage with amazing colour pay off, and the tone is lovely and rich too. The minute you apply this, you get a gorgeous pop of colour that you can’t help but love.
The formula is thick and creamy, but very easy to apply and blend, and it feels very luxurious on your lips as you wear it. It is hydrating and moisturising, and left my lips feeling smooth all day.
The other great thing about this formula is the staying power. As much as I adore cream finishes, the staying power isn’t always as good as I’d like, however with this, you don’t need to worry about having to reapply much at all. Today I caught up with my gorgeous cousin for lunch and it stayed put all afternoon through eating and lots of chatting!
So, if you haven’t guessed already, I love it! I really didn’t expect to be still discovering new lipsticks that I love so late into my challenge but it just goes to show how many great lipsticks there are out there! This one is without a doubt a new favourite and I’ve only got fifteen or so days to go until I can wear it again. Hooray!
If you’re looking for a last minute treat for Christmas then this one is a must buy for me!
