Woo hoo they’re finally here, it felt like the day would never come as I had known about this launch since early May and I was just beyond excited to see the new range in the flesh!! 100 new lipstick shades….Yup you read that right, 100 new shades, along with 50 new lip pencils, it would be almost impossible not to find at least one you liked amongst them but from my point of view it was always going to be narrowing my likes down to an “acceptable “amount that would be the biggest challenge!!!
So I headed into Debenhams in Patrick Street to spend some quality time with the gorgeous Kate as she walked me through the new range and very kindly gave me the opportunity to try on any of the lipsticks that took my fancy…..oooohhh don’t mind if I do!!
The lipsticks come in six different finishes, Mega Matte, Comfort Matte, Cream, Metallized, Sheer and Sheer Shimmer. They’re each matched to their own most suitable lip pencil so it makes picking a complete lip set beyond simple. So I searched through the shade chart and picked out 10 or 11 shades that I wanted to try, I had made a deal with myself before I went in there that I was to stay away from bright pink and coral shades as these are always my “Go To”shades and I wanted to be adventurous and try colours I wouldn’t normally buy now I had the opportunity to. Below is a selection of some of what I tried.
Out of what I tried on I ended up buying Unicorn (Comfort Matte), Backtalk (Comfort Matte) and Conspiracy (Metallized) but I absolutely fell in love with Mrs Mia Wallace and it’s definitely on my must have list for Autumn/Winter, this is a re-released colour having proved to be incredibly popular when it was released as a limited edition shade in 2014. I was also brave enough to try Peversion which is black and although the texture of the lipstick was beautiful on I’m afraid the colour did nothing for me but loved having the opportunity to try it.
Since buying them I have to say I’m absolutely obsessed with Backtalk its by far the most unique colour I’ve ever owned and I would highly recommend the Comfort Matte finish, it feels beautiful on the lips, it moves so well and isn’t drying at all plus I’m very impressed with its lasting power, it has withstood cups of coffee and full meals so far without having to be topped up!!
Overall it’s another big thumbs up for these, as anybody who follows my blog or my social media pages will know I am a huge, huge fan of Urban Decay anyway but these did not disappoint. Be sure and head in to Patrick Street where the lovely girls will be only too happy to go through the full range with you and help you find your perfect match!!
