THE VERDICT:

Vice Ganda is one of the brightest stars of this generation; this small town guy with big dreams came from a humble family and background as a stand-up comedian, eventually landed extra roles on T.V., became a household name, and now, an entrepreneur and his first venture is one of the highly anticipated local makeup launches of this year: VICE COSMETICS.

This is your complete swatch guide to all the shades of the lip kits and lipsticks. I'll be sharing my tips as well, most especially with the lip liner, in 3, 2, 1.


WHAT IS IT:

Vice Cosmetics is a collective venture between Vice Ganda and a group of entrepreneurs in the beauty industry; I heard through the grapevine that one of the partners is also one of the founders of Tattoo Junkee, an international brand of makeup that has been featured by globally famous Youtuber, Tati.

You can buy the products separately or as a set; there are two sets: Unkabogable Box (P3,800.00) and this, Phenomenal VVIP Box (P5,000.00).

The difference between the two is my box, Phenomenal VVIP box, contains Vice Cosmetics merchandise, namely a cap and shirt.

The box doesn't feel cheap at all and is so sturdy, you can even recycle it into a makeup kit. I think any makeup lover would love to have any of the boxes this Christmas!

There are 8 shades for Phenomenal Lip Kit.

The Lip Kit comes with a note inside; this is inspired by Colourpop/Kylie and I really think this is a good idea; personalized notes make me feel special and I'm sure others feel the same way too; it's even more special if you got it from a celebrity that you're a fan of.

Phenomenal Lip Kit ingredients

The lip kit box feels really nice; doesn't feel cheap like the lipstick box; Kylie Lip Kit's box feels more flimsy than this.

The liquid lipstick comes in an acrylic tube and the lip liner is a standard pencil. I've heard that the lip liner is very fragile; we'll get into that later.

The liquid lipstick comes with a paddle applicator with a slightly curved middle; I like my liquid lippie applicators with a prominent curve because it helps the applicator stay in place as I coat my lips. This one's okay and I did not have any issue using it though.

The lip liner is a soft cream pencil. It's really soft that it breaks easily right at the beginning; in fact, it can even break when you remove the cap; it's so fragile that wind force is enough to knock down the tip.

Moving forward, here's Good Vibes lipstick. There are 8 shades.

Packaging is steel coated in a metallic fuchsia color. The bullets don't feel cheap like the lip kits; what an amazing treat for P195.00.

The lipsticks have a flat matte finish; reminds me of Kylie's liquid lipsticks; texture is a bit grainy like Kylie's, but I find that Vice's more bearable. Pigmentation is medium to heavy and the lipsticks set into a matte finish in about 1-2 minutes after application. Staying power is good and can last for hours, but needs to be retouched after a meal.

I read reviews saying that the liquid lipstick is extremely drying; I kinda' hoped that it would be the other way around for me and the universe did not fail me; my lips are okay with the formula! You see, I have really dry lips that I can't stand wearing most liquid lipsticks the whole day; when the formula is really bad, I take it out after 10 minutes; I can wear Vice's liquid lipsticks the whole day with minimal, bearable dryness. However, the formula has the tendency to highlight dry patches and dryness so it's best to prep lips with a lip balm or exfoliate before usage.

The lip liners, as I said, need improvement to be changed; as for the quality, it's pigmented that you can use it as a lipstick on its own, creamy, but isn't as long- wearing as the liquid lipstick.

I have noticed that the shades of the lip liner and liquid lipstick don't exactly match; I don't find this a problem though because you'll cover the liner with lipstick anyway; it's actually nice that the lip liner is lighter than the liquid lipstick because you can use it to overdraw your lips to create the illusion of more volume.

TIPS: 

1. Prep lips before wearing the lipstick: Exfoliate and treat with lip balm. 
2. If you have extremely dry lips, you can wear a matte lip balm as a base; the lipstick is so matte that the finish will be unchanged even if you use lip balm underneath. However, I find that the lasting power is a bit affected because of the emollient nature of lip balm. 
3. I've found a way to work around the lip liner: Apply a light force when using the lip liner; one best way to do this is to hold the lip liner at the center of its body; the farther your hand is from the tip of any makeup/makeup tool, the lighter the force will be. 
4. Another way to help prevent the lip liners from breaking is using it slightly sideways.

1. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN AURA

- Mauve rose.

2. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN GOOD VIBES

- Dark rose with a pink undertone.

3. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN KAVOGUE

- Terracotta red.

4. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN KERING KERI

5. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN TARUSH

- Tomato red.

6. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN GANDERZ

- Warm beige with pink undertone.

7. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN PAK GANERN

 - Toasted brown.

8. GOOD VIBES LIPSTICK IN HAYABAYU

- Muted peach beige.

My favorites: Hayabayu, Aura, Good Vibes

The lipsticks have a creamy texture, full coverage, and good staying power; it has a demi- matte finish. I appreciate that it still looks kinda' matte even if it's creamy, unlike some brands that claim their lipsticks are "creamy" matte, but obviously look satin or heck, glossy.

Whew! Swatched 16 shades all in all!

To cap off this post, the thing I like the most about Vice Cosmetics is the packaging; a lot of attention and care went into the creation of the packaging and it didn't look cheap even if the products are cheap; without looking at the price, you would think that Vice Cosmetics is a pricey brand at first gaze. Of course the quality and shades of the lipsticks; both have really good quality. Not much to nitpick on, except the lip liner; I mean, c'mon, for lipsticks less than P300.00, Vice Cosmetics delivers!

  6. I like Hayabayu and Benjamin on you! The Showtime looks patchy and dried slightly unevenly. It's not really noticeable except if you stare at it too long. Nevertheless, it looks like a promising brand! 😊

  8. the shades are poppin! Sobrang pigmented niya po tignan from the photos. I've also heard some comments regarding the lipliners. Some said that the product itself isn't intact with the packaging. I do hope they'd improve those. Nonetheless, hands down for Vice's first launch! It's so promising tbh :D Thanks for this, Ms. Martha!

  9. Gaaah! I'm excited to try this line! For someone fair-skinned like me, I am always on the lookout for nude pink shades for everyday wear. Hinihintay ko siya maging available sa Cebu so I can swatch them personally. I have also read reviews on other blogs na ang dali maputol ng lip liner - sayang, I wanted to buy one para Kylie Lip Kit ang vibes. Anyhow, ang ganda talaga ng swatches/shades. For someone as colorful as Vice, ang shades na ni-release niya ay wearable for every day.
