Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Palettes

“You say ‘lipstick hoarder’ like it’s a bad thing.”

I mean, yeah, my shoulders might permanently tilt on my right side because of my penchant for carrying around 8-10 tubes of lipstick to go grab a boba tea from the mall, but at least I’m always prepared…because ya never know. If I’m ever struck by an uncontrollable need to switch from a neutral lip to an epic red — and trust me, urges like that are right up there with Nutella yearnings — I’ll be prepared.

The Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Palettes look like this…

I thought about this the other day when I swapped out neutral peachy pink Ex-Girlfriend lipstick for bright orangey red EZ (swoon!) from the new $35 Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Palette in Blackmail, one of two Vice Lipstick Palettes from UD this year for the holidays.

It’s so easy to switch your lipstick shade when you have 12 of them in a sleek travel case.

And the palettes also come with a respectable, retractable lip brush, and it’s better than most, because most travel lip brushes are about as useful as painting your lips with a handful of pine needles.

Pretty packaging

Both of these UD Vice Lipstick Palettes — Blackmail and Junkie — are $35 each, which isn’t bad, considering that each one has 12 shades.

The Blackmail palette seems tame, with its lovely mix of nudes and brights, beside its rock ‘n’ roll rebel yell sister, Junkie, with its edgier colors and that cray-cray forest green.

When Blackmail arrives soon, it’ll be holding lipstick hoarders for ransom at Ulta Beauty, select Macy’s, beauty.com and the Urban Decay website, but if Junkie is more of your fix, it’ll be a Sephora exclusive.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the UD Vice lippies are bad-@ss beautiful. I got hooked on them when the Gwen Stefani collection dropped, and I was wearing shade 714, like, 23 hours a day.

They have that soft, creamy quality I look for in moisturizing lipsticks (yup, even the mattes are pretty darned moisturizing), and they drape across your lips like a silk gown on a woman’s curves.

There’s a wide range colors and finishes among the two palettes (Mega Matte, Comfort Matte, Cream, Metallized, Sheer and Sheer Shimmer), and they’re good representations of what the line has to offer in terms of lipstick.

Here’s the thing, though: even though I love the Vice lipsticks, and I like the colors in these palettes and the $35 price, I’ve also come to realize that I’m not really a lipstick palette person…

I’ve been carrying around both of these palettes this week because I freaking love the idea of rollin’ deep with 24 lipsticks, but I haven’t used them very often when I’ve been out and about to touch up my lips.

And even MORE Junkie swatches…

My heart definitely prefers individual tubes, even to these great big boxes of color.

I’d rather just carry a bunch of individual tubes… I dunno, though. I might be a weirdo that way.

But if you’re a lipstick palette gal, then yeah, these are good palettes.

I’m inclined to point you toward Blackmail, because I think it’s the more useful of the two. The brights and nudes are balanced, and you can probably find something in there to match any and all eye looks.

Does one of these catch your eye? And what do you think of the Urban Decay Vices?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
