Formula: Comfort Matte
As part of the UD Jean-Michel Basquiat collection, Urban Decay created three new, exclusive Vice Lipstick shades inspired by the work of this groundbreaking artist.
From the colours and shade names to the packaging, everything in this collection evolved from Basquiat's art.
Like Urban Decay, Basquiat was an outsider who challenged the status quo and used colour in nontraditional ways. From his informal graffiti work and the way he mixed mediums and colours to the way he spoke out against social injustice, it's hard to imagine a more perfect fit for UD.
These three brand-new, exclusive shades of Vice Lipstick are based on the colours in Basquiat’s work. Each one delivers intense payoff with a rich, creamy feel and features UD’s proprietary Pigment Infusion System™. Each lipstick cap is wrapped in canvas printed with Basquiat’s art...voilà, an art gallery in your handbag.
About the artist: Jean-Michel Basquiat began drawing and painting at the age of four and never stopped. By the time he was in his teens, his graffiti was a fixture around lower Manhattan. After leaving home at 17, he began selling hand-painted postcards and T-shirts. At 20, he landed his first public exhibition and quickly rose to fame on the 80s art scene in NYC. His iconic work is still exhibited all over the world.
