Whether you’re a full-fledged lipstick fanatic or new to the lippie game, Artist Rouge has all the shades you need, ranging from nude to blue. The 45 highly pigmented products feature the best reds, nudes, pinks, berries and artistic lipstick (like pastels and dark blue) made to flatter an array of skin tones. Not only will the shades keep you looking effortlessly chic, the collection offers the high-precision lipsticks in two different finishes, 31 cream lipsticks and 14 matte. Both textures are nourishing to lips and can last through even the seemingly-toughest tasks like sipping a cup of coffee. Here are some of our favorite Artist Rouge shades:

As they say around the UD office, “Lipstick is Our Vice.” One of the others? Tattoos, of course. As the wise Ron Swanson once said, “Don’t half ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.” So Urban Decay decided, if really committed to the cause (and I think you can call launching 100 shades of lipstick committed), we wouldn’t just celebrate lipstick on one day. We’d celebrate it permanently. IN INK.
UD is working with tattoo artist Georgia Grey to give lipstick junkies everywhere the chance to double down on their commitment, and get an exclusive tattoo designed by Georgia and inspired by UD’s new Vice Lipstick line.
The design? A gorgeous lip outline loosely filled in with watercolor splashes. Georgia used a bold line to show her love for traditional images that can be seen a mile away… just like a bold lip that pops from afar. The watercolor is a loose medium, which Georgia used to reflect the desire to wear every color in the 100-shade lineup, and to mimic the feel of graffiti in an urban setting. Georgia created a piece inspired by the individual setting themselves apart – whether it’s permanently inked or wiped off at the end of the day. She’s available to ink it on true UD junkies at Bang Bang Tattoos, located in NYC.
Here’s some beauty with a cause, New York-based product innovator and beauty industry expert, Linda Treska created a color cosmetics line that incorporates modern technology with waterless products. Pinch of Colour is proud to collaborate with water charities that bring clean water and safe drinking to people in developing nations. Don’t forget! Pinch of Colour is launching at the Indie Beauty Expo on August 24 + 25 (indiebeautyexpo.com).
