Urban Decay recently completely revamped their entire lipstick line and launched the Vice lipsticks.  The range includes an impressive 100 shades with six finishes, including sheer, sheer shimmer, cream, metallized, comfort matte and mega matte.  An additional 20 shades are also available exclusively to Sephora, so lucky you if you have access to Sephora to view these shades!

This post features the two shades I purchased with a metallized finish: Zealot and Cruel.  I also have Wonderland (Gwen Stefani packaging), Firebird (Gwen Stefani packaging) and Venom (from the old Revolution range).  Wonderland, Firebird and Venom have all been incorporated into the permanent Vice collection.  You can read my post on Wonderland lipstick here and my post on Venom lipstick here.

Today, I am going to introduce you to a recent find of mine: Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 410 Fab Orange.  The Maybelline Lip Pencils are a great all-in-one product, as you can use them to both line and colour the lips.  They are also handbag friendly and cost only £4.99, making them a fantastic option if you are on the go and looking for a quick (and cheap) way of wearing lip colour.

Today, I am going to introduce you to my new favourite lipstick: Urban Decay Lipstick in Wonderland!

Wonderland lipstick is part of the new limited edition Gwen Stefani collection, which has been launched by Urban Decay.  The collection contains a blusher palette, an eyeshadow palette, a range of lipsticks, coordinating lip liners and a brow box.  I couldn’t resist taking a look at the products when I was in store  and fell in love with one of the lipsticks – Wonderland.

Update: Wonderland is now available as part of the permanent Urban Decay Vice Lipstick collection.  The other shades from the Gwen Stefani collection have also been incorporated into the regular Vice range of lipsticks.
