Lipstick is my Vice Blackmail Palette


No really, Lipstick is my vice. Even after being in the beauty industry for over ten years, it’s still a thrill opening a gorgeous lipstick shade.  I was really fortunate to be apart of the Urban Decay mega lipstick launch a couple of months ago, back in May, when the did a complete lipstick revamp launching 100 reformulated shades (74 of which were completely new!) as part of the Vice Lipstick collection ($17 each). They teamed up with 100 influencers for each to be the face of one of the shades.


Being the bright pink queen that I am, I was matched with shade, Jilted (you can see the whole lookbook and everyone featured HERE). It was pretty surreal to see my face on Urban Decay’s website. They really are one of my all time favorite makeup brands and just embrace color and cater to so many different ethnicities. Granted, they picked a really strange image of me — I look so angry, ha! But I’ll take it! It’s hard to believe 3 months ago i had purple and green hair and now I’m a bleach blonde. Jilted is a deep fuchsia shimmer cream lipstick with blue shift. The massive lipstick assortment range in six different finishes from mattes, creams, to sheers.

Now for the holidays they have launched two new limited edition Vice palettes, Blackmail and Junkie. They are a steal at $35 and feature 12 Vice Lipstick shades and the Vice Lip Brush, which is retractable. I’ve been seeing them all over Instagram but not swatched out and I think that’s key to these palettes since the finishes range. The colors you see in the pans completely transforms for a lot of them when you put them on. I only have the Blackmail palette, swatched below:
