As a human being, I tend to be pretty indecisive. I recently spent about 20 minutes in Whole Foods agonizing over whether I should buy arrabbiata tomato sauce or vodka sauce. (FYI, I went with arrabbiata, but don't kid yourself, I've thought about that vodka sauce a lot this week.)
Anyway, the same thing goes for me when buying lipstick. Lipstick is arguably the category where I experiment in the most, which makes deciding which color to buy that much harder. Honestly, if I don't prep myself in advance, I might spend a few hours painstakingly obsessing over whether I should go with a nude or an aubergine. I take every chance I can to not make stark choices, and Urban Decay is now enabling that indecisiveness in my lipstick lifestyle thanks to a new palette.
What It's Called:
Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette
How Much It Will Set You Back:
An indulgent sashimi platter for lunch or... $35; nordstrom.com
What Makes It Special:
You get 12 shades that run the gamut of the six finishes that exist within the Vice Lipstick line. They're all super pigmented and apply easily with the enclosed lipstick brush. If you're going away, you can rest easy knowing you get the perfect nude, the sexiest red possible, and a ton of other shades in between. I'm so obsessed.
Who’s It For?
If you are indecisive, travel a lot, or just want a compact way to have even more lipstick.
When to Use It:
All day, every day, multiple times a day.
What the Internet Is Saying:
What It Feels Like:
Smooth, creamy and long-lasting. Not drying in the slightest.
