Question of the Week: What’s your feeling on limited edition products?
I feel like almost everything is limited edition these days! There are so many releases and collaborations coming out that I can barely keep up with the reviews. I don’t mind it though – I love seeing the new releases as they come out. The only thing that would NOT work as limited edition would be a good foundation, concealer or something that I’ll use on a long term basis. If it’s a lipstick, highlighter or eyeshadow palette, and I absolutely loved it, I could buy a few and they’d last forever (until I found a new holy grail that is!).
Speaking of limited edition beauty products, this one is a potential impulse buy that supports a great cause. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Outspoken is what UD calls a limited-edition “universal nude-pink shade with a metallized finish.” The weird thing is that this lipstick looks like a metallic brick red to me – not pink at all – especially on my yellow-toned skin. I think this is a pretty color, but not a color I’d normally wear. My fiancé, Gregg, seems to love it. I think he likes shiny, sparkly lipstick on me, and I usually don’t. The purple rose case is super pretty though, and if you’re down with this shade, you’ll want to keep this one in your bag to show it off.
The biggest thing? When you buy one, Urban Decay gives ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the purchase price to women’s empowerment nonprofits!
Like all Urban Decay Vice lipsticks, the formula has great color payoff – and if you know me, you know I prefer comfortable lipstick to those crazy drying long wear ones. The formula has aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, Illipe butter, and babassu oils to keep your lips hydrated. Vitamin C and E provide antioxidant action.
