Last September, Vice Ganda launched his line of lipsticks that sold out its year-long stocks in a month! Users raved about his long-lasting liquid lipsticks that sells for just P195 a tube. I was intrigued myself but never got the chance to get hold of one until last week, when I got invited to the launch of Vice Ganda cosmetics' collaboration with Bang Pineda.

It was not a surprise to see this collaboration materialize as Vice Ganda has always trusted his stylist and long-time friend Bang's aesthetics that's very similar to his. Fun yet accessible and relatable is how Vice Ganda described their style.

And to commemorate that, they've teamed up to create a striking lipstick collection. The four duos of Vice's phenomenal matte lipstick with a glitter topper is said to achieve that "Ganda with a Bang!"

I happily played with the colors and tried them on myself. On first application, I got surprised on how lightweight the formula was. Amongst all matte liquid lipsticks I've tried, this one's the lightest. I waited for minutes for it to dry and it didn't feel too tight on my lips. I didn't have a hard time smiling or talking, or feeling conscious that the color might crack everytime I move my lips -- which was a problem with other matte lipstick formulations. I was quite impressed on the quality given it's just P195! 

The glitter topper is a winner to anyone who'd want a bit more glam. It gives the dazzle we need on a night-out. My mood that night was just for matte lips so I decided to just have fun with the glitter topper by dabbing it on other parts of my face such as the eyelids, browbone and cheekbone. 

Wearing Mowdel shade's phenomenal matte lipstick

The Vice x Bang duos comes in four limited edition pair of shades. Only Vice cosmetics can come up with such fun, quirky and uniquely Pinoy names for the shades: Fashown, Mowdel, Rrrahmpa and Saveeeh. My favorite so far is Mowdel, which is reminiscent of the 90's era popular brownish nude shade.

Though they come in pairs, you can mix and match the matte lippies with the glitter toppers. 

The Vice x Bang collection is now available at P395.00 per pair in all Vice cosmetic stores, Watsons and SM department stores nationwide.
