My 'impulse' buy was the Vice lipstick in the shade Big Bang and it's matching lipliner. I know what you're thinking, 'Now I know why this started off with talking about unwearable colours'. I couldn't help myself, I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame.
Talking about the Big Bang lipliner first. This is my first Urban Decay lipliner and I have to say I am impressed. The texture is soft and creamy, and not at all drying. The pencil just glides along my lips without any snagging or tugging. The colour of Big Bang is a bold fuchsia with just a hint of the pink glitter that the full lipstick contains. I own no other lipliner like this or as bold a this. The rest of my lipliners are all more nudey pinks so this was a definite step out of my comfort zone.
The Big Bang lipstick is just so astoundingly beautiful. When you swatch the lipstick, it looks like it is a shade or two cooler than the matching lipliner. I think that could just be the effect of the high amount of shimmer to it. And let's talk about that shimmer. This lipstick is just chock-a-block full of it. Alas, that does make the texture a bit 'thicker' than say a normal lipstick, but man is it worth it!
I would highly recommend both the Big Bang lipliner and the lipstick to anyone who is fearless and loves to try bold makeup. If you are a bit more wary, then just using the lipliner with some moisturising balm would be a lot more subtle. This is definitely my 'out-there' beauty purchase for the year.
What do you think? Big Bang - yay or nay?
