If you’re looking for a fool-proof lipstick to get you through the day, then Urban Decay Vice lipstick has got you covered. It’s a waterproof formula to ensure that it’s not coming off until you remove it. The best part about this lipstick is Urban Decay’s cruelty-free status that means every application is a guilt-free experience.

Although I’ve tried out many lipsticks over the years, these are the ones I continue to use again and again, and I always receive so many compliments when wearing them.

They come in a ton of gorgeous colors and the creamy matte formula is perfect if you’re looking for a beautiful lipstick that doesn’t dry out the lips and lasts all day.

This cruelty-free nourishing lipstick comes in 40 beautiful shades and is a great choice if you’re looking for a glossy lip with a satin texture. Not only does it look amazing, but it stays on an entire day. The lipstick is also infused with beneficial vitamins, making the lips feel soft, smooth, and hydrated.

The formula of this lipstick is extremely rich, creamy, and long-lasting. The packaging is very sleek and comes with an applicator way beyond typical drugstore doe-foot applicators. There are many shades to choose from.
