LIPSTICK IS MY VICE



I’d actually be lying to you if I said lipstick is my favourite part of makeup. I struggle finding shades that fit me (those past mistakes with hot pink lips!), I’m not exactly blessed with a  Kylie-Jenner-esque pair and as soon as I apply any products, I immediately start unconsciously licking them off (a habit I'm trying to kick, I assure you).
It is only recently that I’ve started to make better choices in regards of lip products and found a whole brave new world of different looks opening up. I’ve been finding some excellent shade options is the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks (there are like a 120 choices or something after all) and thought I’d share three of my picks with you today. 

Ma valetaksin, kui väidaksin, et huulepulk on alati mu lemmik meigitoode olnud. Tihti avastan, et mitte üks toon ei sobi, Kylie Jenneri musisuuga pole õnnistatud ja kui midagi on peale kantud, hakkan mitteteadlikult huuli närima (harjumus, mida üritan maha jätta). Viimasel ajal olen hakanud rohkem mõistma, millised toonid mulle sobida võiksid ning seetõttu huulepulkade maailma palju rohkem avastanud. Uueks lemmikuks on Urban Decay Vice huulepulgad, mille kollekstioonis on koguni 120 tooni - piisavalt igale huulepulgafanatile. Tellisin endale kolm tooni, millest sooviks juttu teha.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in the shade Liar
Starting off with Liar. Sporting a cream formula, this is the lightest and the most nude in my selection. It’s an easy going everyday muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a nice natural sheen. It’s comfortable to wear and smooths out any imperfections on the lips. It does require some touch ups upon eating or drinking (it’s a cream formula after all), but is well made up by the fact it doesn’t dry the lips one bit (like some matte lipsticks will).

Esimesena toon Liar. Tegemist on minu valikutest kõige heledama ning nahavärvi tooniga. See on sooja alatooniga summutatud nude-roosa, mida on lihtne igapäevaselt kanda. Huultele kandes jääb tulemus kreemjas ja kergelt kumav, siludes nahal olevad vaod ja ebatäiused. Söömise ja joomise vahel peaks küll musipulka uuesti peale kandma, aga vastutasuks ei kuivata see huuli üleliigselt (nagu paljud matid huulevärvid teevad).
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in the shade Ravenswood
On to Ravenswood. This is a little darker, a dusty rose with a warm red undertone with a cream finish. Its consistency is pretty much the same as Liar – opaque coverage, creamy finish, smooths out the lips and is comfortable to wear. Requires touch ups when eating or drinking but is otherwise fairly hydrating.

Järgmisena toon Ravenswood, mis on veidi tumedam, pruunikas-punane sooja alatooniga värvus. Koostiselt on see üsna sarnane toonile Liar - kerge läikega, kreemjas ning mugav kanda. Süües-juues vajalik musisuud uuesti värvida, aga muidu väga niisutav.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in the shade F-Bomb

The final shade of my choice is called F-Bomb. I’m kind of one the fence as to which is my favourite, since this one is definitely the stand out of the bunch, but is however also the hardest to wear. Whereas I pretty much slapped on the other colours, this required a much preciser hand (in fear of looking like Miranda Sings). Though it is an absolute stunning colour, I think I will have to reserve this for more special occasions (or a time where eating or drinking – my two favourite activities – aren’t included). This is all due to the colour selection though, as the formulation is beautiful as ever. As for an everyday red, I might have to stick to a more matte formula that will survive my munchies.

Viimase tooni nimi on F-Bomb. Ma ei oska öelda, kas see on mu lemmik, sest kuigi valitud värvidest on see kõige silmapaistvam, on sellega ka kõige raskem töötada. Kui teisi toone sai võrdlemisi kergesti huultele kanda, siis selle jaoks on vaja täpset kätt (et mitte näha välja nagu Miranda Sings). Kuigi tegemist on uskumatult kauni värvitooniga, pean seda hoidma kordadeks, kui söömine või joomine (mu kaks lemmiktegevust) ei ole päevakavas. Igapäevaseks kasutamiseks pean vist jääma vanade mati koostisega huuletoodete juurde, mis elavad üle ka ootamatud mugimised.
I love all of these shades (and for a change they might just all fit me), but I am a little sad that I chose them all in the cream finish. The Vice Lipsticks offer a range of six finishes: sheer shimmer, shimmer, metallized, cream, comfort matte and mega matte. I would particularly like to try the comfort matte formula as matte lip products do have a tendency of leaving my pout painful and dry. I have good news for iPhone users – if you’re unsure which shade to get, there’s an app for that! You can try out all of the 120 shades to match the exact look you want. This makes orientation in the vast world of a 120 shades a lot easier and would provide help for shade-challenged people like myself. The Vice Lipsticks are a fine bunch (at least the cream formula) and I look forward to trying out some more. My wallet is not going to thank me though…

Olen kõigist toonidest lummatud (ja vahelduseks kõik tunduvad mulle ka sobivat), aga olen kurb, et teistest koostistest ühtegi värvi ei valinud. Nimelt on Vice huulepulki koguni kuute sorti: läbipaistev-kumav, läbipaistev, metaljas, kreemjas, mugav matt ja megamatt. Eriti sooviks proovida mugavat matti koostist, sest teadagi jätavad mati koostisega huuletooted musi tihti kuivaks ja valusaks. Ühtlasi on hea uudis iPhone'i kasutajatele - kui pole kindel, milline värv sobiks, saab Vice äpi kaudu kõiki 120 tooni proovida. Kuigi pole täiesti "päris proovimine", aitab see kindlasti tohutus huulepulgamaailmas orienteeruda ja oma lemmikud välja valida. Eriti aitaks see minusuguseid abituid, kes oma õiget tooni kunagi ei leia. Vice huulepulgad on aga üks tore punt (vähemalt kreemja koostisega isendid) ja ootan huviga uute toonide katsetamist. Mu rahakott pole selle üle küll vast väga õnnelik...
