Urban Decay is my VICE

There is no intro needed, Urban Decay's newest launch is next level. So if you're not already aware, let me brief you in. Urban Decay have just launched a 100 strong collection of lipstick with an insanely varied colour base and six varied finishes through the collection.

Ruby Rose has headed the launch (which makes it all the more needed, don't you think?), modelling a mega matte red in the ads.

The mirrored glossy tube is a throwback to their original packaging, just luxed up for 2016. I am obsessed with the embossing on each of the lipstick bullets, something I fell in love with in the Alice in Wonderland collection. It's that added touch of luxe that I love from Urban Decay.

I was so excited to try this range, purely because I got so excited looking at all the shades. I never even knew I could be that excited for a lipstick, but here we are. They're all really comfortable to wear, from the mega mattes to the creams, and they last insanely well. The creams I've tried have a touch of stain around them, so if the bold colours are a little too out there for you, just blot and go and you'll be getting the colour payoff without going so bold.

My favourites from those I've tried are Backtalk and Firebird. Neither of which do I have anything similar of in my collection, Backtalk in particular is a shade I didn't think would work on me but I am obsessed... And kind of thinking Kylie Cosmetics dupe but I've never tried that range so don't hold me to it.
