You guys know my love for lipsticks. So I am back with another lipstick review. From the title you must have known that I am going to review Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick. I got this in my Sephora give me some nudes lip kit. I am head over heels about this lipstick since the moment I wore it. This urban decay Vice Liquid Lipstick is available in 30 shades and the one I am going to review is the shade Trivial. So let’s get into the review
Price: $18. But now sale it on sale for just $9 on Sephora.
Availability: Sephora. Both online and in stores
My experience with Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick
How’s the packaging?
If I had to tell it in one word then I would say “Classy”. But that’s not how I am supposed to review right *hehehe* So it comes in a transparent plastic tube with a metallic cap where the brand name is carved. You can see the shade name at the bottom of the tube.
It has a flocked paddle applicator making the lipstick application easier. I personally love this kind of applicator than the dough tip applicators.
How’s the formula of Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick?
It says that it is a liquid lipstick but I would say it is more of a creamy moussy liquid lipstick. It glides on the lips smoothly and turns matte within 30 seconds. The flat applicator prevents me from messing up my lips
It is so lightweight that you will not even feel like you have something on your lips. I am totally loving its formula.
Oh yeah the formula is hydrating and not gonna make your lips dry or accentuate your lip lines.

How’s the pigmentation of Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick
Two swipes of this lipstick and you will get an opaque pink lip. Yes, it is well pigmented.
How long does will it stay on the lips?
If you have just water and coffee then the staying power of this lipstick would be 6-7 hours. And if you are having a meal then it would last for 4-5 hours.
Does it become patchy?
No. This is the best thing about this urban decay Vice Liquid Lipstick. It didn’t look patchy even after wearing it for hours. With time it may fade but it will make your lips look patchy.
Does it transfer?
This lipstick claims to be waterproof and I second that. I can very confidently tell that it is 100% transfer proof. Once it turns matte this is not gonna transfer at all.
How’s the shade Trivial?
The Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in the shade trivial is a pink shade/ pinky nude with a warm undertone. It has a slight metallic finish to it. This shade would suit fair to medium skin tones. It’s that pink which you can wear in the daytime and also at night with smokey eyes.
The metallic finish gives a fancy look to it. I belong to that category of people who don’t like metallic liquid lipstick. But this urban decay Vice Liquid Lipstick doesn’t give your lips that blinding metallic finish but a subtle one.
How’s the final finish of Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick?
This lipstick in the shade Trivial gives beautiful pinkish nude lips with a hint of shimmery metallic finish. The brand claims that the formula of this Lipstick is loaded with pearls and glitter. And that’s the reason it gives a metalized shades. It gives the satin look to the lips but the lips are completely matte. So basically what it looks like is not what you will feel *sounding contradicting* It’s that kind of different/ weird combo.
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick has one of the best formulations. If you have a fair to medium skin tone and if you can invest then I would highly recommend you to try it. If not the shade Trivial, try some shade that would suit your skin tone. But do try. This matte lipstick giving satin look has a mild metallic finish making it look fancy yet simple (particularly this pinky nude shade Trivial)

I am so thankful for the advent of liquid lipsticks! They are quickly becoming a makeup staple in my stash! Be it for everyday use or glamming up for parties, liquid lipsticks in matte form are the best. And with the growing popularity of matte liquid lipsticks in so many brands, it is difficult to choose the right one. Finding a good shade in a matte liquid lipstick is such a task! Swatches seen online can sometimes be so deceiving! What suits you might not suit on me and vice versa.
I am especially particular when it comes to lip colors and prefer not ordering them online! But I couldn’t resist placing an order from BH Cosmetics during the Black Friday Sale and hauled a couple of products directly from their website! One of the products I fell in love with from BH Cosmetics is their Liquid lipstick range. I bought one and now can’t seem to get over how beautiful it is! Now let’s get straight into reviewing this Gorgeous liquid matte lipstick in the shade ‘Endora’
PACKAGING OF BH COSMETICS LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK
To begin with, the packaging of this lipstick is lovely, nothing extraordinary though. It comes in a cute glass bottle with a doe shaped applicator like many other liquid lipsticks in general.
TEXTURE AND APPLICATION OF BH COSMETICS LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK
As for the application, it is excellent and glides smoothly onto the lips leaving an excellent pigmentation and a beautiful color payoff. Liquid lipsticks, in general, tend to stick on your lips making them dry, but it wasn’t the case with this one. I didn’t feel the need to apply a lip balm or moisturize or scrub my lips beforehand as the formula is so creamy, smooth and silky. It feels incredibly light on the lips and is super comfortable to wear.
It is an intensely pigmented lip color which means it gives a good amount of coverage with just one swipe. Even with multiple layers, it looks just as great.
WEAR-TIME OF BH COSMETICS LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK
It lasts for a good 8 hours on the lips even after drinking and eating. Might begin to fade after 8 hours which is completely okay as you can always keep it handy in the bag for a touch-up!
MY THOUGHTS ON BH COSMETICS LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK ENDORA SHADE
Endora is a beautiful muted rosy pink shade and can go well with all skin tones. It has a slightly Mauvey-finish which I loved. I personally feel it goes extremely well with Asian skin tones. When it comes to liquid mattes, neutral pinks do the job excellently, because they can be pulled off for everyday use as well as for parties!
I must say I was absolutely floored. The kind of quality and pigmentation BH Cosmetics has in this budget is seriously impressive!
ABOUT THE BRAND:-
BH Cosmetics is a vegan and cruelty-free brand which means they are not tested on animals. All the ingredients put together in the lipstick are 100 percent vegan which is again a plus point. I honestly fell in love with this brand for their high quality products and pocket-friendly prices, which is a rare combination.
We have to splurge big bucks to get a good product nowadays, especially when it comes to Indian makeup brands or the ones launched in India. I hope BH Cosmetics launches sometime soon in India so we don’t have to pay twice the amount to buy these products.
PROS OF BH COSMETICS LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK
1. Excellent color pay off
2. Beautiful pigmentation
3. Smooth texture
4. Feels super light on the lips
5. Variety of shades to choose from
1. The color tends to become lighter once dried.
Over-all it is an excellent product. I would highly recommend this shade as it goes well with all skin tones. I am a happy and super satisfied with this purchase. I am definitely gonna haul a couple of more liquid lipsticks from this range!

The gross oily-skin feel during summers where it feels like somebody has set up an oil factory at the center of the face!
If you do have oily skin, you would know the struggle of keeping it in control.
Apparently, there is a lot that could go wrong when you try different tips. For one, you may experience more breakouts and increased oil production. Whatever you use may just backfire making your skin look worse and ending up with redness, rashes and permanent scars.
The stuff that is contained in commercial products may not work on your skin; thus the skin reacts and makes the condition worse.
Moderately oily skin is actually healthy as it helps maintain skin’s natural moisture, protective covering and reduce the onset of wrinkles. However, too much of it causes clogged pores that attract more dirt and lead to blackheads or breakouts.
So that’s when you could take simple steps to regulate excess oil production.
1.Rub ice daily
The solution is all in your freezer. Wrap an ice cube in a cloth and rub in circular motions for no more than 3 – 5 minutes on your face before applying makeup or going out. This is the quickest way to tighten and de-puff your skin and increase blood circulation.
Don’t do it during winter months for self-explanatory reasons!
Since oily skin attracts pollutants and dirt that clog pores and cause blackheads or breakouts, you want to use a good-quality cleanser that can penetrate deep into the skin to clear all that dirt and give you a radiant glow.
Make sure you select a cleanser that is not too harsh on the skin and does not have drying properties because the more you dry your skin out, the more oil your skin would be generating to sustain the moisture. Also, you can check the list of the best cleanser for acne-prone skin.
3.Moisturization is vital even for oily skin
You may have come across the misconception that oily skin doesn’t need moisturization since there is already a lot of moisture and it could increase the sheen. However, the idea of keeping your skin hydrated is important for every skin type.
When you go out your skin is exposed to thousands of germs, allergens, pollutants and harmful rays of the sun that are destructive to the natural protective layer of the skin. Furthermore, if you use makeup with mattifying effects, apply moisturizer prior to application to regulate dryness AND excess sebum production.
However, ensure that you select moisturizers that do not contain heavy ingredients. Select non-comedogenic creams as they let the skin breath and don’t clog pores. They also function to absorb excess moisture and retain skin’s natural moisture.
4.Go easy on the cosmetics that you use on your face
It’s best to apply less makeup to maintain the natural texture and radiance of the skin. Applying layer upon layer of makeup would clog your pores, prevent the skin from breathing and cause breakouts. Select foundations that are light-weight or mattifying.
Also, don’t let even light makeup stay on your skin for too long. If you return home and don’t need makeup anymore, use a good-quality micellar water solution to remove makeup and let the skin breathe or renew for as long as possible.
If not, at least remove all makeup residue before going to sleep and let the skin renew through the night.
Applying mud or clay masks once a week can help absorb excess oil, regulate oil production and give a gorgeous glow to the skin. Find out which mask works best for your skin. Mix it with cool rose water for maximum benefits.
When it comes to your face, it’s best to go easy on it and not overload it with too many products because different harsh chemicals are damaging to your skin in the long-term. The best thing you could do to your skin can be found right in your everyday household items. Ladies of past decades relied on ordinary household items to maintain beautiful skin when creams were not even there.
Your grandma is on spot about that.
So these were some of the tips to get rid of shiny face/oily face.
