Urban Decay are going to be releasing these two 12 colour lipstick palettes before Christmas, holiday palettes are my favourite. All you beauty addicts know that not too long ago UD released 100 Vice Lipsticks and it is exciting that they have made a palette for one of their more recent launches. Lipstick palettes are becoming slightly more popular now, I know L'Oreal have done a few and I think it is a fantastic idea. All your lipsticks in one place, making it easier to mix and travel, for all lipstick lovers I think at least one of these palettes would be a necessity. I am not a lipstick obsessed human but hell even I am seriously tempted. They are so pretty. Most of the photos in this post are from the video xpsarkage loaded, edited by me. I love her channel, she used to do some really creative thematic makeup looks, I loved her Disney and Hunger Game series but now she mostly sticks to reviews. You can watch the video at the end of this post.
The palettes are marketed slightly differently, although the packaging is identical. The only difference is the colours, although they do share the same three colours, the remaining nine are different. Blackmail is a palette suitable for everybody, on the other hand Junkie is for makeup junkies (hence the name) due to the slightly more daring colours in the palette that won't necessarily be to everyone's taste. I think you can have fun with both palettes, Blackmail is more wearable with some really eye-catching nudes and Junkie has lavenders and greens but also quite a few every day shades too. More of a mixed bag. The swatches for Blackmail, the more wearable Vice palette are below:

I love so many of the colours in the Blackmail palette, especially 1993 and the darker colours are particularly striking, such as, Amulet and Blackmail. Gorgeous colours. The shades are not exclusive to each palette as you can see below, with the swatches from the Junkie palette there is quite a bit of crossover. 714, Firebird and Big Bang are in both the Blackmail and the Junkie palette. In the Junkie Palette the standout colours to me are Disturbed, Safeword, Speedball and Junkie. If I I had to pick one I would go for the Blackmail palette for the sole reason it contains 1993 which is my favourite lip colour in the history of all lip colours. Perfection.

Thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post and would love to know what you think of the Vice Lipstick palettes. Do you prefer Blackmail or Junkie? Let me know in the comments, are you excited for Christmas yet? I feel like I have been excited since July, honestly when my iPhone hits an Ariana Grande Christmas Song when its on shuffle I have to suppress my glee that we are one day closer to the holidays. I'm such a child. Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Take care.
Are you digging Blackmail or Junkie or neither?
