Urban Decay Lipstick Review – Backtalk Comfort Matte

Hey Guys,

How have you been doing? It’s been quite long now since I wrote a lipstick review 🙂  but I’m back now!

So I recently went for a vacation to Thailand, with shopping on my mind 😉 😉

I planned to shop the local Thai makeup brands, and I saw an Urban Decay store, and the amazing shades of lipsticks. And….the rest is history J I have a lot of pink shades in my collection, the only shade that was missing was a daily wear pink shade, darker than nude J I told them my weird specifications for the shade, and the first shade that they showed me was bang on! The perfect shade – Backtalk Comfort Matte from the VICE range.

Product Claims:

It is a creamy formula that applies smoothly, and is highly pigmented. It nourishes, hydrates and enhances the lips, leaving them soft and conditioned.


The lipstick was packed in a pretty black cardboard box, and inside was a classy metallic, shiny case. The case is super solid, and doesn’t seem it would break easily. Thankfully, I haven’t had a chance to check how solid it is! 😉 I’m in love with the unique sturdy packaging.


My Review:

I was looking for a subtle shade and fell in love with this one. It’s a warm mauve that goes well with a smokey eye at night and office meetings during the day. This is my go-to shade, when nothing else seems to match. And true to its claims, its super creamy and very well pigmented. It gives a fresh matte finish without drying up the lips, and keeps the lips hydrated and nourished. It stays on for a good amount of time, about 5 hours with light meals in between. I like that it doesn’t settle into the fine lines.

Single Swatch

What works:

  • Creamy yet matte finish
  • Doesn’t dry on the lips
  • Stays put for a decent time with meals
  • Attractive packaging
  • I personally love the shade

What doesn’t:

Not available in India, but there’s really nothing negative about the lipstick.

Rating: 5/5
