Simply Lippy Challenge Day 259 | Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Shade Tryst

I first tried one of these liquid lipsticks from Urban Decay when they were released back in March, in a lovely muted pink shade called Balktalk. I hadn’t intended on waiting so long to try my next shade from them as I really liked it, but there have been a lot to get through as you know!

So when I was picking up a few new shades for my holidays and saw this neon coral shade, I couldn’t resist buying it. I love bright lipsticks as I’m sure you all know by now, and this is the perfect holiday shade.

The formula is very creamy for a liquid lipstick, and therefore glides on easily to the lips with little or no effort. The pigment like all Urban Decay lippies, is stunning and has gives amazing colour pay off too.

I did notice that in the Tenerife heat, it did take a little longer to dry in than I remembered, but what’s a few extra minutes on holiday?! Once dry, it stayed in place pretty damn well, even with the 26 degree balmy evening.

It did flake a little when eating dinner so that was slightly disappointing. But as that didn’t happen to me the last time I wore it, I’m putting that down to the heat and not the formula itself. 

Overall I absolutely adore this shade and it was the perfect shade to start my holiday off on a bright, sunny note. I do prefer their lipsticks over their liquid lipsticks, but this was a nice change today.

Have any of you tried these yet? By all accounts they are getting good reviews in the beauty world and if you’re a liquid fan, they come in some stunning shades too!

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 201 | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Shade, Tilt

Tilt; oh my god, where have you been all my life?!

On Friday I headed off to Madrid early in the morning for a weekend away and had a gorgeous red floral dress that I wanted to wear that day. Because of that, I knew I needed the perfect coral / red lip to accompany it and so, in the airport decided to treat myself to my day 201 lip there and then.

I love Urban Decay lipsticks, and I particularly love their comfort matte finishes, so the moment I saw this I knew I would love it and it had to be mine. And I wasn’t wrong!

This lippy is just divine in every sense of the word. It is creamy, highly pigmented, incredibly blendable and has the most gorgeous soft matte finish.

The colour pay off, as you’d expect from Urban Decay, is brilliant and the staying power is pretty damn good too.

As I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, there is nothing I don’t like about it other than the fact that I’ve only discovered it now!

Many of you will know that I very rarely say you should go out and purchase anything; lipsticks are a very personal choice. But, if you are looking for a bright Summer lip and love coral, then this one is definitely worth checking out.

It really is the perfect summer lippy and one that I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing for many years to come.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 66 | Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Shade, Backtalk 

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that I’ve been so excited about Urban Decay’s Vice Liquid Lipstick launch and finally, it was released a few weeks ago.

I’m a big fan of their products – there’s nothing I’ve tried from UD that I don’t like, so of course the lipstick lover in me has very high hopes for the new Vice collection.

Today I got to try my first Vice liquid lipstick in a lovely deep pink shade I bought called Backtalk, and after just one day of wearing it, I’m absolutely loving it. 

The formula itself is liquid with a matte finish, and the matte finish is smooth and creamy which you don’t always get with liquid formulas. It’s not hydrating, but it’s not drying either, and it takes nearly no time at all to dry in and show up its true colour.

The shade itself has a greyish, berry undertone to it, so I would probably describe it as a muted or dull pink, but it is rich enough to still have a bold impact on application. And speaking of application; it’s so quick and easy with the soft, angled brush head.

Everything about this excites me; the packaging, the formula, the colour, the lasting power. I had a feeling it would be a good lipstick, and I’m so glad it has lived up to my expectations.

I’ll definitely be trying out some more shades in the range soon!

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 28 | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Rock Steady

I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy for a Saturday to arrive than I have today. It was a busy week as you all know, and a bit of a stressful one too, so I’ve been looking forward to some chill time. And while it’s been a busy day, I did get to have some ‘me’ time in the hairdressers which was great.

As you’ll see from the pictures below, my hair was tied up in a a complete mess this morning. It’s been driving me crazy lately because I hadn’t got it done since before our trip in October, but thankfully today, I finally got it done. I don’t know about you but I just feel so much better about myself when my colour and cut are freshly done!

Today is kind of a special day because it marks the end of the fourth week in my Simply Lippy challenge which means I’ve almost hit the one month mark. While it’s been four weeks today, on Wednesday it’ll officially be the end of month one, and I can’t believe it! I’ll be putting together an end of month review post during the week so make sure you keep an eye out for that if you want to find out my favourite and least favourite choices of the last few weeks.

Anyway, for today’s lip choice I was craving a bold shade after my neutral week. I just love strong lips as you know, and keeping it tame during the week for work was a challenge in itself! But today, I finally get to be bold again and I chose the most stunning shade from Urban Decay to do it.

Rock Steady, from the Vice collection is the most beautiful creamy, deep berry red shade and I am just totally in love with it! I have this lipstick since last September but have been saving it for a rainy day (I’ve no idea why!). So although today isn’t a rainy day, because I wanted to wear something bold and strong, it felt like the perfect day to take it out.

I’m sure many of you will know that Urban Decay is one of my favourite beauty brands; they do everything so well, especially eyeshadow and lipstick, and this lippy is a prime example of that.

There are so many things I love about the range: the application is soft and smooth, it doesn’t drag on your lips, and, the colour pay off is amazing! Honestly, the pigment on every single shade I’ve tried is just insane, and once this baby is on your lips, it’s not coming off unless you want it too. It also contains Aloe Vera and Jojoba oil making it super hydrating and moisturising to wear. So seriously, what more could you want?!

Obviously throughout this challenge I’m going to be trying so many different brands, textures and finishes; some I’ll love, some I’ll like, but it’s very rare that I’ll really loath a lipstick. It would have to be very, very bad for me to not find any positives. So because of that, I’m not going to suggest you go out and buy something unless I’m totally and utterly obsessed, or very impressed by it.

And let me tell you, I am obsessed with this!

If you haven’t tried a Vice lipstick before and love a good lipstick then is definitely a range I’d recommend. At €18, I think they are so well priced, and there are six different finishes to choose from. My preference is either the cream or comfort matte finish, but really, they are all lovely. So you can expect to see a lot more of these lippies throughout the year!

Don’t forget, I’m sharing all my challenge photos and progress over on my social media pages so come follow me over there. You’ll find me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Oh, and if you feel like joining me for a cuppa and a chat then I’m over on snapchat too. Just search for @imsimplysorcha.
