Lipstick Showdown: NYX vs. Urban Decay


Alright, its time for who wore it better, lipstick showdown, the battle of the mattes.

The two contenders:

Left side: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp

Right side: Urban Decay Vice in Blackmail Comfort Matte

Antwerp, is velvety smooth, its not a lip gloss, its not a lipstick, its just right. It goes on very pigmented and creamy but dries to a nice matte finish. It is very durable and long-lasting. I found there was minimal colour transfer. The colour was perfect for daytime.

Blackmail is one of Urban Decay’s 100 colours in their VICE line. In my opinion, this is a must have shade for dramatic lips. I loved the way this played up my eyes for a more evening look. It did go on creamy but I found that the colour transferred quickly and started looking blotchy. That being said, the blotchy parts of my lips did turn a really nice colour and kind of looked like I was going for an ombre look, so I was ok with that. This colour did however need frequent re-application to keep it looking fresh.
