Urban Decay Vanity Kills, Twitch, Cruz, Notorious, Speedball Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Vanity Kills Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “lavender [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a medium, lavender purple with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It seemed to be one of the less-pigmented Mega Matte shades, though it was still semi-opaque; I just felt like it was noticeably translucent where the natural lip color comes through and can influence the way the lipstick looks on. The consistency was thin, not too clingy, and a had a bit more slip than other Mega Mattes. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating, but some of the color settled into lip lines over time. Colour Pop Koala (DC, $6.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $19.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Lured In (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Lavender Jade (P, $17.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Brills (DC, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever C503 (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Coven (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Weekend 2 (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Strutting Fabulous (LE, $19.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Dodgy Girl (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Make Up For Ever C502 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (80% similar). Melt Cosmetics Darling (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Sheer + Sheer Shimmer Vice Lipsticks | Swatches + First Impressions

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, and this post is highlighting the Sheer and Sheer Shimmer finish. I’ve put the two together, because they aren’t that different other than one has a decent amount of shimmer and the other doesn’t (plus, there are only five Sheer Shimmers, four of which were also part of the Sheer Revolution range!).

Urban Decay Metallized Vice Lipsticks | Swatches + First Impressions

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, and this post is highlighting the Metallized finish. According to the brand, it’s supposed to be a “Cream with a high level of pearl,” but I would say it’s more like a hybrid between the Cream finish and the Sheer Shimmer finish–it’s not as thick or as creamy as the Creams, generally, but it is a more pigmented formula than the Sheer Shimmers.

Urban Decay Mega Matte Vice Lipsticks | Swatches + First Impressions

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.011 oz.) is available in six finishes, and this post is highlighting the Mega Matte finish.  This was a new finish that was first seen in the Gwen Stefani collaboration with the shade 714, which is the only pre-existing shade–there are 10 in total, 9 are new.  I previously noted that while the color of 714 didn’t really change from range to range, the consistency was creamier in the new, Vice formula.  It didn’t drag, tug, or otherwise feel painful to apply, which was largely my experience with 714 when launched in the Gwen Stefani collection.

Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice Lipsticks | Swatches + First Impressions

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.011 oz.) is available in six finishes, and this post is highlighting the Comfort Matte finish. A lot of the shades listed under this finish are shades from the previous Matte Revolution range. In general, the colors are very similar (if not exactly the same; see this comparison post for swatches of new vs. old shades that differ), but the Comfort Matte finish is noticeably less dense, slightly more emollient/has more slip and the end result is more of a true satin finish than a matte one when compared to the Matte Revolution formula. To me, the Matte Revolution formula had a more silicone-like feel to it–velvety and smooth but not wet, drier in a way without being dry or stiff–and Comfort Matte feels more like most lipsticks. Like most satin finishes, they tend to wear down to a more semi-matte or matte finish once you have them on for a couple of hours or if you blot lightly/drink from a glass a few times.
