Urban Decay Vice Metal Meets Matte Lipstick Palette
Are you a Vice Lipstick junkie like myself? Then hang on, this year Urban Decay has a new and even more gorgeous limited-edition palette of Vice Lipstick that is metallic and matte together. This palette will take you from nighttime to the next morning easily. It features 12 addictive shades from the massive lipstick collection and six of them are new! You get dark, sultry hues to fail safe neutrals and bold brights. The shades are all organized by finish and color family, metallized shades are on the top row and the coordinating matte shades are on the bottom row. Start with a metallized shade for your night out. Then, when that night rolls into the next morning and you did not made it back home, channel your alter ego by switching to the corresponding matte shade for daytime and roll into work looking hot. This palette contains new shades like Spark (bright red with tonal shimmer), Banger (deep oxblood), and Shallow (lavender). It also contains cult-favorite shades like Big Bang (bright pink sparkle) and Backtalk (mauve-nude pink), this palette has all your needs covered.
What is great is this is perfect for travel too. It includes a retractable lip brush. This super-sleek palette was made to experiment with. Engineered with real life in mind, the palette makes it super easy to apply lipstick on the go. They have designed the wells with a special stair-step effect that is perfect for wiping any excess lipstick off of the brush, thus keeping the lipstick in the compartment and not all over the palette. When you are done applying, flip the attached cover on top of the lipstick wells to keep the shades protected and the compact free of any mess. The palette is practical and beautiful. People will ooh and ah over it when you pull it out of your makeup bag. The luxurious case has a deep purple lid with a metallized gunmetal base.
In this palette is the exact Vice Lipstick formula that you expect, know and love. Urban Decay's proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ gives each shade its super-creamy texture, rich payoff and superior color dispersion. The Yummy Butter Blend comforts, hydrates and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, never dry.

Below are swatches of the shades. I went from top to bottom together to show how closely each of the metallized and matte shades closely resemble each other, it's hard to see the metallic sparkle in the swatches:
