The Ultimate Pair | Bad Blood | Urban Decay |Lip Pencil and Lipstick | Review & Swatches

Inspired by Taylor Swift, her signature red lips and smash hit about girl-on-girl bad blood, the lipstick is probably the most famous of Urban Decay’s latest lipstick range. My first red lipstick from Urban Decay brand which is my first luxurious brand. So let’s discover this product further 🙂

Brand claims-
Available in an array of indulgent finishes and lipstick colors that range from bold brights to dark hues to versatile neutrals, the possibilities are endless. Each shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels ultra-comfortable. Plus, our signature Vice formula gives the lipstick its super-creamy texture, pigmented payoff, and superior color dispersion.
We’ve also packed every shade with nourishing ingredients. A butter blend comforts, hydrates, and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, and never dry. Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils nourish and soften lips. Illipe butter, derived from Malaysian illipe trees, provides long-lasting moisture, while the vitamins C and E deliver a hit of antioxidants.

How to use-

  • For ultra-long wear and to prevent feathering, pair these shades of Vice Lipstick with matching shades of 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.
  • To hold color in place, correct mistakes, and even fill in lines, use our Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil.
  • Layer more than one shade of Vice Lipstick to create custom lip colors.
  • Get a gradient effect by applying a deep shade to the outer area of your lip, then add a softer shade to the center.

My experience with this product-
The Ultimate Pair lip duo comes with matching lip pencil and lipstick. I got my hand on this set during sale and I believe they come around the holiday season, otherwise I hardly see them in offer in off days. The lipstick comes in a black cardboard box with picture of the product inside mentioned in a golden letters. The lipliner is in the color of the product with silver cap on the top. The silver print on the pencil and at the bottom really make it look stunning. The lipstick comes in a shiny gold metallic bullet with golden bottom. It’s a chic design, elegant yet somewhat luxurious in looks. I love brand which give importance to small details.

The texture of lip pencil is creamy that glides smoothly on my lips like a dream without smudging. It does has matte finish which latter makes lip dry. The texture of lipstick is creamy and smooth which glides smoothly on lips without hurting it as if it is hugging the lips. It also keeps my lips nicely moisturized, thanks to its nourishing blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter.

The colour pay off is awesome and can be seen in a single swipe and to look more even 2 swipes are required, which is even claimed by brand. You can build the intensity of color depending on the look. Though it claim as comfort matte but it do has a satin finish. Color of lip pencil and lipstick match perfectly, but are not exactly the same in tone. Lip pencil is slightly warmer toned while the lipstick is darker in shade.

The Lip pencil stays for approx 7-8 hours due to its matte formula but lipstick stays hardly for 4-5 hours and then it start disappearing leaving the stain behind which calls for touchup. I felt heaviness on my lips after 2 swipe over lip pencil, as if someone has put enough weight on my delicate lips 😀 Lip pencil can be a bit drying on lips so make sure you moisturize before the application. The best part is removal was easy and did not make my lips bleed neither my skin peeled.

Overall, The ultimate pair set is good as it comes with the lip pencil and lipstick. It would have cost heavier if taken separately. I would recommend you guys to buy this product in an offer so you can grab good deal. Lip pencil is proper matte, has really nice smooth formula and is good for outlining. Lipstick has lovely creamy formula with a sheen to it and can be build up for a more opaque look. Considering the texture, staying power, shade, pigmentation, vegan, cruelty free makes this lipstick stand out. As I said, I am a firm believer that you can find good quality lip products in drugstore range as well. It’s up to you what you want to spend money on.
