Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Comfort Matte in 1993

September 2016 was the first time I ever saw Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip. I reviewed one of the lip products in that kit, Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Stepping Out. While writing the post, I learned it comes out twice a year so when Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip came out in January 2017, I knew I had to purchase it. I actually purchased it last month, February 2017.

It comes in a lip shaped box with six lip products. Two of the lip products are full-size and the other four are sample sizes. It's a great deal for $28.
Here's how it looks inside.
Here are the lip products. I know Urban Decay is a full-size product but I'm not too sure which is the other full-size. I'm guessing the lip liner from Estee Lauder but I could be wrong. I already reviewed Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb (middle). For this post, I will review the lipstick on the top.

Thoughts: I knew I was getting an Urban Decay lipstick, but I wasn't too sure which color until I opened the kit. I was excited to know it's 1993 in the matte texture. I've been wanting to get this color since the matte collection came out from Urban Decay but unfortunately, my ULTA was always sold out.
Here's a closer look at the lipstick. It has Urban Decay logo written on the lipstick.
Here's a swatch of the lipstick on my hand. On the Sephora website, it's described as "medium brown." I definitely agree.
Here's how it looks on me.
Here's an overall look with Victoria's Secret and Mustaev eyeshadows on the lid.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and there's a slight scent. It smells artificial kind of waxy. Secondly, the packaging is cute. It comes in a metallic, sturdy packaging. There's no scratches and finger marks. It has a slightly sturdy closure. I think with time it can loosen depending how you store the lipstick. If the package bends a little, it won't close anymore. With that said, I doubt the packaging will bend unless you are extremely rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. Third, the consistency is creamy and just glides on the lips. It does not tug on the lips. Some lipsticks it's hard to outline the lips but I didn't have an issue with this lipstick. The slanted tip was perfect around the outline of the lips. With that said, it went on smoothly with a slight shiny matte texture. This lipstick is great on fine and thick lines. It won't show or at least it didn't show any lines on my lips. Fourth, the color is gorgeous. It's definitely on the brown side. If you don't like warm colors, this might not be for you. I love my browns. With that said, it's not an all year color. It'll be great for fall/winter season. It's also very pigmented. You don't need to build color. One layer is good enough. Lastly, it lasted a good time. I have a tendency to wipe my mouth after I eat. The color didn't come off that easily as other lipsticks after I wipe my mouth. I was pretty impressed. Of course, it didn't last all day but the longevity was decent. With that said, it's not drying. It's extremely comfortable and I did not see any white residue in the center of the lips.

Pros:
* No noticeable scent while applying.
* Metallic, sturdy packaging.
* Slightly sturdy closure.
* Travel-friendly.
* Creamy consistency.
* Glides on the lips.
* Does not tug on the lips.
* Slanted tip outlines the outside perfectly.
* Slightly shiny matte texture.
* Does not show fine and thick lines.
* Gorgeous, brown shade.
* Great for fall/winter season.
* Pigmented.
* Not drying; no residue in the center of the lips.
* Comfortable.
* Longevity was impressive; did not come off after I wiped my mouth.

Cons:
* Can look muddy depending on your makeup.

Would repurchase: Yes.
