Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette | Photos | Swatches | Review

The Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette ($35.00) contains 12 lipsticks in a  pretty large palette with a huge mirror. When I first saw swatches of this on Temptalia, I knew I wanted it, but it didn't seem practical for travel or for everyday use. I was wrong. I have taken this palette to work with me numerous times in my tiny purse without a problem. And since it doubles as a mirror, it was easy to swap a few items out to make room for this baby. The palette also comes with a lip brush, in which I have conflicted feelings about its performance.

So my issue with the lip brush is that it's hard to use as it makes the colors streaky. I also tried applying the colors with my fingers, but it was obvious after a while that  brush is necessary. If you already have a good lip brush, I'd say don't bother with this one. I don't, so I deal with this one until the color is no longer streaky. It was also a challenge for me to push out of it's tube; having to push it out does no feel so user friendly.

One surprising feature was the longevity of some of the colors. I was unsure about carrying this in my purse to work and when I wore Firebird, I didn't need to reapply all day! But every color is not made equal and that wasn't the case with Carnal or Wrath. I had to reapply both after eating. Carnal is a great nude lip for darker skin tones. It doesn't look like it would be in the palette but I love it. The lipsticks are creamy and neither drying nor moisturizing on their own.

Here are a few photos of me in those three colors:

I am really enjoying the palette and it's taking me some time to use all of the colors. I am quite curious about Junkie and whether or not I can pull that off! Stay tuned for MOTD looks with these colors!
