Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Bobby Dazzle Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “white iridescent pearl [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a neutral-to-warm leaning white shimmer. There’s not much color to it, and I imagine it would be better as a layering shade than on its own, though the lack of base color makes it wearable on its own. The consistency had some slip, was on the thinner side, and wasn’t drying when worn, though I had some of the milkiness seem to settle into lip lines. The shimmer wasn’t too noticeable on the lips and didn’t seem to migrate. It lasted for two hours on me. I think this shade would be better labeled as a Sheer Shimmer. NYX Stone Cold (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Casey (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Walk of Shame Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pale nude-pink [with a Sheer Shimmer finish].” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and very fine shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which means a lot of the natural lip color will come through, so this can look wildly different from person to person. On me, it lightens my natural lip color and washes it out. It applies somewhat unevenly and gathers in some of my lip lines. This shade lasted for two hours and was neither hydrating nor drying. Urban Decay Sheer Walk of Shame (DC, $22.00) is better quality (95% similar). MAC Fashion Pack (LE, $23.00) is more muted, more pigmented (90% similar). Colour Pop Addict (DC, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Woodrose (LE, $17.00) is cooler, better quality (90% similar). Urban Decay Earthling (P, $17.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Barfly Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pale nude [with a Cream finish].” It’s a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a creamy, light-medium-weight consistency that glided on without tugging, but this shade didn’t apply as evenly as other shades. I noticed that it struggled to adhere near the center of the lips for some reason. This lipstick wore well for four hours with some color pulling into lip lines over time. bareMinerals Bubbles (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Moody Margot (106) (DC, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC She's a Peach (LE, $17.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Maybelline Barely Bloomed (700) (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Promise Me (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Beau (DC, $35.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Close Contact (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Pure Decoration (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Earthling Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pale nude with pink undertone [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a natural finish. It is a lot like Walk of Shame, but this shade has more coverage (semi-opaque). It goes on somewhat evenly but is unforgiving. it seemed to catch on any imperfection on my lips. Some of the color pulled into lip lines, which worsened over the two and a half hours it lasted. MAC MCizzle (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alexander (2016) (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Crème d'Nude (P, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Dahhlinggg! (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Kim K.W. (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). MAC Fashion Pack (LE, $23.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Walk of Shame (P, $17.00) is less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). MAC Blankety (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Walk of Shame (DC, $22.00)(90% similar). Colour Pop Addict (DC, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Luxe Natural (P, $23.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Woodrose (LE, $17.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Trick Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic pinky-copper shimmer with micro-sparkle [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a muted, medium gold with copper and fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on fairly evenly and didn’t emphasize lip lines. The shimmer is just barely noticeable when applying from the tube, but I don’t feel it when it is sitting on the lips. The consistency had moderate slip but wore for three hours. It did, however, feel more like a Sheer Shimmer. Bite Beauty Gold (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Altoum (LE, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Whip (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Liquid Lurex (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Dior Golden (065) (LE, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Live Long and Prosper (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Lame (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Graham (P, $35.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Rose Gold (LE, $26.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC By Design (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC The Enemy Within (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Private Life (01) (LE, $53.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty William (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing. Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing. Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red). Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration. Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration. The Revolution formula–generally–felt a little more hydrating and pigmented on the lips, but these seem to wear a little longer; some of the shades that were in Revolution and are now in Vice (particularly the Creams, Sheers, and Sheer Shimmers) feel virtually the same on to me. The Comfort Mattes are the only ones that felt largely different–more satiny than matte, less dense compared to Matte Revolution.

A note on packaging: an average Revolution lipstick weighed 1.0 oz. in total, while a Vice Lipstick weighed 0.7 oz. in total. The weight distribution for a Revolution lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.8 oz. for the base. The weight distribution for a Vice lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.5 oz. for the base. The decrease is felt primarily in the sturdiness/weighted feeling of the base, so I find the older Revolutions to stand better on their own, but thrown into a cup or jar for storage, it doesn’t really matter. The more weighted base does give a greater sense of heft when applying, since you hold the base. The caps are the same total weight, but the Revolution caps are shorter and, as a result, maybe 1mm thicker, while the Vice caps are longer and spread the same weight of material over a larger area. All but two out of 120 lipstick caps felt very secure, and then about four were extremely secure and difficult to uncap, but otherwise, there is a soft “click” and the caps seem to stay on without easily coming off. All that being said, they seem to be the same packaging used in the Gwen Stefani and Alice Through the Looking Glass collaborations, though the interior tube felt a little higher-end, even though they all weigh the same. Revolution Lipsticks were $22.00 for 0.09 oz., which works out to be $244.44/oz., and these are $17.00 for 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. So while the packaging does feel less substantial and cheaper, you are paying $5 less and getting more for your money, but if you really liked the heavier base of Revolution lipsticks, you might miss that feeling with the new packaging.

Urban Decay Wrath, 69, Doubt, Spiderweb, Cruel Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Wrath Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic red [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a fine, ruby red shimmer. I find it very, very similar to Cruel, just with more pigmentation and finer, tonal shimmer. The shimmer is smoother in this one, so it has a more pearlescent sheen overall. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a creamy, lightly emollient texture that glided on easily and delivered even coverage. This shade wore well for almost six hours and was hydrating while worn. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Role Play (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Cruel (P, $17.00) is darker, more pigmented (95% similar). NARS Dressed to Kill (P, $28.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Shiseido First Bite (RD307) (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Kween (LE, $6.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar).

Urban Decay 69 Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright red with pink undertone [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bright, medium pink-red with blue undertones and a glossy, creamy finish. It had a really smooth, lightweight, and creamy consistency that had enough density to it that it made lips look smoother and plumper (also due in part to the higher-shine finish). The coverage was opaque, while the lipstick wore for over six hours and was hydrating. Guerlain Greta (P, $55.00) is darker (95% similar). Guerlain Garconne (P, $55.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay 69 (DC, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Clinique Cherry Pop (P, $18.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C404 (P, $22.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).

NARS Deadly Catch (LE, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Juicy (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Doubt Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “red with blue undertone [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was one of the more matte finished shades in the Comfort Matte range (which tend to look more like satins). It was richly pigmented with one-stroke coverage that applied evenly and smoothly without gathering into lip lines. This shade wore well for over six hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Stunner (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay 714 (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Besame Besame Red 1920 (P, $22.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Make Up For Ever #43 (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Just Add Romance (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Leading Lady Red (LE, $18.00) is darker, less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). MAC Kinky (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Red Rock (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Tenor Voice (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Fraise (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Besame Red Velvet 1946 (P, $22.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Spiderweb Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “satin red [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark red with cooler undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff, but there’s a very slight translucency that gives the lipstick a more gel-like finish overall. On me, it was still going strong after six hours of wear, and it was moderately hydrating over time. I didn’t experience feathering personally, but it did have some slip, so it might be an issue for others! Bite Beauty Pomegranate (P, $24.00) is cooler (95% similar). Buxom Provocateur (P, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Imperial Red (P, $35.00) is cooler (95% similar). Shiseido Ruby Copper (RD501) (P, $28.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Urban Decay No-Tell Motel (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Russian Doll (P, $35.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C404 (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Besame Besame Red 1920 (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Greta (P, $55.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay F-Bomb (DC, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Dylan (P, $35.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Gazpacho (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Retro Red (P, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). Shiseido Poppy (RD312) (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Holly (LE, $24.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Gala (P, $55.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Estee Lauder Vengeful Red (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Cruel Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “red with copper shimmer [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a medium-dark red with warmer undertones and a multi-colored shimmer–gold, fuchsia, and copper. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and it felt more Cream like than Sheer, which is a plus (it’s supposed to be more like a Cream, just with a lot of shimmer!). The texture wasn’t too slippery, so it stayed in place well and applied evenly. This shade lasted for five and a half hours on me and was comfortable to wear. Urban Decay Wrath (P, $17.00) is lighter, less pigmented (95% similar). NARS Dressed to Kill (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Role Play (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Kween (LE, $6.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). Guerlain Red Strass (327) (P, $37.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Estee Lauder Naked Ambition (120) (P, $32.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Vanished Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pale neutral nude [with a Cream finish].” It’s a light-medium peach-beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It seemed more like a Sheer than a Cream to me, as it had more slip, less density, and had semi-sheer coverage. It lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Urban Decay Insanity Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “soft warm nude [with a Cream finish].” It’s a muted, medium peachy-beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen. The texture was moderately emollient, comfortable to wear, and glided on without tugging on the lips. IIt had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly, but it was a little thinner in consistency compared to other shades, so it didn’t smooth out the appearance of lips as much. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Delectable (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Milkshake (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Urban Decay Stark Naked Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “light nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was creamy, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. On me, the color lasted for four hours and wasn’t drying, but I noticed some of the lip color pulled into lip lines just slightly. Urban Decay Stark Naked (DC, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Urban Decay Liar Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink-nude [with a Cream finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had very nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was light-medium in weight, comfortable to wear, and dense enough to smooth out the appearance of the lips. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was nicely hydrating. The Vice version is slightly darker than the Revolution version. Benefit La La Land (DC, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Urban Decay Interrogate Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium peachy-rose [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium peachy-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It was medium in weight with a very creamy, slippery texture that stayed in the lines but moved around on the lips for me–I felt like I was wearing lipstick more so with this shade than others in the range. It had good pigmentation and was nicely hydrating, though! This shade wore well for four and a half hours. NARS Sarah (LE, $32.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing. Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing. Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red). Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration. Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration. The Revolution formula–generally–felt a little more hydrating and pigmented on the lips, but these seem to wear a little longer; some of the shades that were in Revolution and are now in Vice (particularly the Creams, Sheers, and Sheer Shimmers) feel virtually the same on to me. The Comfort Mattes are the only ones that felt largely different–more satiny than matte, less dense compared to Matte Revolution.

A note on packaging: an average Revolution lipstick weighed 1.0 oz. in total, while a Vice Lipstick weighed 0.7 oz. in total. The weight distribution for a Revolution lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.8 oz. for the base. The weight distribution for a Vice lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.5 oz. for the base. The decrease is felt primarily in the sturdiness/weighted feeling of the base, so I find the older Revolutions to stand better on their own, but thrown into a cup or jar for storage, it doesn’t really matter. The more weighted base does give a greater sense of heft when applying, since you hold the base. The caps are the same total weight, but the Revolution caps are shorter and, as a result, maybe 1mm thicker, while the Vice caps are longer and spread the same weight of material over a larger area. All but two out of 120 lipstick caps felt very secure, and then about four were extremely secure and difficult to uncap, but otherwise, there is a soft “click” and the caps seem to stay on without easily coming off. All that being said, they seem to be the same packaging used in the Gwen Stefani and Alice Through the Looking Glass collaborations, though the interior tube felt a little higher-end, even though they all weigh the same. Revolution Lipsticks were $22.00 for 0.09 oz., which works out to be $244.44/oz., and these are $17.00 for 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. So while the packaging does feel less substantial and cheaper, you are paying $5 less and getting more for your money, but if you really liked the heavier base of Revolution lipsticks, you might miss that feeling with the new packaging.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Menace Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium fuchsia-pink [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark fuchsia with cool, bluish undertones and a mostly satin finish. This one seemed to have very, very faint shimmer in it. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and easy to apply, though it was thinner than some of the other Comfort Mattes and I could see streaks of color in the close-up photo (not apparent to my eye in real life).

Urban Decay Wonderland Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “dark pink-red [with a Cream finish].” It’s a deep, medium-dark red-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. It was richly pigmented with a light-to-medium-weight texture that was creamy and glided on well, but it had some density to it so that it adhered well to the lips (without feeling clingy). It was comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and lasted for five hours. Urban Decay Wonderland (LE, $18.00) is less pigmented (95% similar).

Urban Decay Streak Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “coral-pink [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy finish. This was one of the few shades that was noticeably different in color/tone from the prior formula to the new formula–the Vice version is significantly cooler and pinker. The texture had moderate slip, some creaminess, and applied fairly evenly. It had semi-opaque coverage and felt more like a hybrid between the Sheer and Cream finishes than a true Cream. This shade lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating. YSL Corail Urbain (51) (P, $36.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Bite Beauty Chablis (P, $24.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Checkmate Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink-fuchsia [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a bold, bright medium pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented and yielded full, even coverage that was smooth and didn’t pull into lip lines over time. The color lasted for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Saucy Little Darling (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C306 (P, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Force of Love (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Snitch Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pale coral-pink [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a light-medium, peach-coral with warm undertones and a lustrous shine. It had semi-opaque coverage that applied decently, but it was somewhat streaky and highlighted lip lines. The texture was thin enough that it didn’t seem to truly settle into lip lines, but it was one of the less flattering shades applied in the line-up. It lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Jubilee (P, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Naked Proof (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar).

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Ladyflower Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “rose-pink [with a Sheer Shimmer finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It’s a smidgen more pigmented than the Sheer version of this from the Revolution range, but it is not as pigmented as the opaque as the regular Revolution shade. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a soft shine. The consistency felt slightly stiff initially but quickly warmed up against the lips and glided on more easily; I felt like this shade self-leveled after a minute or so after being applied. It wore for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Sweetie (P, $17.00) is more muted, less pigmented (95% similar).

Urban Decay Jilted Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia shimmer with blue shift [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark fuchsia-berry with subtle, cool undertones and fuchsia shimmer. It had nearly opaque pigmentation–there was just a hint of my lip freckle peeking through–with a creamy, medium-weight texture that had moderate slip but didn’t feather or slide around too easily. The formula wore well for five hours, left a stain behind, and was hydrating. Urban Decay Jilted (DC, $22.00) is brighter, less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Firebird (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Sabotage (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Boy Gorgeous (222) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Firebird Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium-dark pinky-berry with cool, blue undertones and fuchsia pearl.

Urban Decay Afterdark Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium-dark berry pink [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a deep, plum-berry with cool undertones and a fine, subtle pearl. It had more of a semi-matte to satin finish–not quite as satiny as others in the Comfort Matte finish but not truly matte. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging. It wore well for six hours, left behind a stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Urban Decay Venom Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright plum [with a Cream finish].” It’s a deep, muted berry with cool undertones and fine purple and pink shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a creamy, lightly glossy consistency that glided on well and wore for five hours. It left behind a stain, and it didn’t feather on me over time. It swatched very similarly (I couldn’t detect a difference) on the skin, but it appears more muted/deeper in pigment applied, which translated into a darker, less pink end result for me. MAC Rebel (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Hel's Bells (P, $32.00) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing. Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing. Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red). Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration. Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration. The Revolution formula–generally–felt a little more hydrating and pigmented on the lips, but these seem to wear a little longer; some of the shades that were in Revolution and are now in Vice (particularly the Creams, Sheers, and Sheer Shimmers) feel virtually the same on to me. The Comfort Mattes are the only ones that felt largely different–more satiny than matte, less dense compared to Matte Revolution.

A note on packaging: an average Revolution lipstick weighed 1.0 oz. in total, while a Vice Lipstick weighed 0.7 oz. in total. The weight distribution for a Revolution lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.8 oz. for the base. The weight distribution for a Vice lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.5 oz. for the base. The decrease is felt primarily in the sturdiness/weighted feeling of the base, so I find the older Revolutions to stand better on their own, but thrown into a cup or jar for storage, it doesn’t really matter. The more weighted base does give a greater sense of heft when applying, since you hold the base. The caps are the same total weight, but the Revolution caps are shorter and, as a result, maybe 1mm thicker, while the Vice caps are longer and spread the same weight of material over a larger area. All but two out of 120 lipstick caps felt very secure, and then about four were extremely secure and difficult to uncap, but otherwise, there is a soft “click” and the caps seem to stay on without easily coming off. All that being said, they seem to be the same packaging used in the Gwen Stefani and Alice Through the Looking Glass collaborations, though the interior tube felt a little higher-end, even though they all weigh the same. Revolution Lipsticks were $22.00 for 0.09 oz., which works out to be $244.44/oz., and these are $17.00 for 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. So while the packaging does feel less substantial and cheaper, you are paying $5 less and getting more for your money, but if you really liked the heavier base of Revolution lipsticks, you might miss that feeling with the new packaging.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Liquid Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “brown-plum [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm, red undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff that went on fairly evenly. The texture was lightweight, thin with some slip and felt balm-like when initially applied. On me, it lasted for three and a half hours and was very lightly moisturizing. Estee Lauder Dangerous (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Jeanne (408) (P, $37.00) is brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pavlos (LE, $35.00) is darker (80% similar). Bite Beauty Cognac (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Perversion Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “black [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a deep black with neutral undertones and a very fine shimmer-sheen. It applied with nearly opaque coverage, and despite having a lightly creamy texture, it actually applied quite evenly. The color lasted for five hours and didn’t feather on me (but this is not something I’m particularly prone to, so I would take that with a grain of salt!). The formula felt neither hydrating nor drying to me.
MAC Stallion (LE, $21.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Tarte Naughty (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (000) (LE, $30.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C604 (P, $22.00) is brighter, warmer, glossier (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #50 (P, $19.00) is glossier (90% similar). NYX Chambord (P, $6.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Anastasia Midnight (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC In the Spirit (P, $17.00) is less pigmented, cooler, lower quality (95% similar). MAC Hautecore (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Witches (P, $20.00) is less glossy (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic green shimmer with gold micro-sparkle [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark cooler green with a lot of warmer, gold sparkle and shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a moderately emollient consistency that slid around slightly but was comfortable to wear and did not feather on me. It lasted for four hours and tended to gravitate towards lip lines after two hours of wear, but the more emollient texture made it more forgiving to smooth the color back into place. This shade is exclusive to Sephora. Colour Pop Bunny (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Smeraldo (LE, $33.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). Bite Beauty Kale (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Heroine Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “navy blue [with a Cream finish].” It’s a deep, navy blue with cool undertones and a satin finish. It was one of the more “matte” shades in the range and didn’t really look or feel like a cream It is officially listed as a Comfort Matte at launch. The color payoff was very nearly opaque, while the texture applied evenly for the most part, but it did have some areas where it wasn’t as pigmented as others, particularly around the edges for me. It wore well for five hours with slight color getting into my lip lines. Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Colour Pop Climax (P, $5.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Kat Von D Echo (P, $20.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Maybelline Sapphire Siren (P, $7.49) is darker (85% similar). MAC Blue Beat (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Squid Ink (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Savage Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as an “electric pink [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was thin but creamy enough not to drag on the lips, while the thinner texture highlighted lip lines to a minor degree. I noticed some of the color pooled into my lip lines after three hours of wear, though the color lasted closer to five hours in total. The formula was lightly drying. Colour Pop Tickler (P, $5.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Fashion Tide (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Talk to Me (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C206 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
