Round-up: Urban Decay Sheer & Sheer Shimmer Vice Lipsticks Overview

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Sheer/Sheer Shimmer Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) varies from sheer to semi-sheer color with moderate to no shimmer. They are distinct finishes, but in terms of how they feel and wear, they are pretty similar–the Sheer Shimmer just adds fine pearl. They have a glossier finish and shorter wear time compared to the other shades. They are comparable to the Sheer Revolution formula, but they feel a little thinner and wear slightly shorter. They have the type of texture that “melts” on the lips as the bullet warms up against the heat from the lips as well. For more on how the finish compares to other shades, please see this post.

Round-up: Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is notable for its very creamy, smooth, and lightweight feel while still delivering high coverage. A lot of the Matte Revolution lipsticks shades can be found within this finish, though the Comfort Matte formula is less dense and has more shine to it than the Matte Revolutions (which felt more velvety). The wear varied from four to six hours, depending on the intensity of the shade. Some shades are neither hydrating nor drying, while others were lightly hydrating.  For more on how the finish compares to other shades, please see this post.

Urban Decay Oblivion, Trance, Backtalk, Rush, Sheer Rapture Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Oblivion Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “gray-taupe [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, rosy taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage, and though it was firmer and drier in the tube, it didn’t drag like some of the other Mega Mattes. It was thin, clingy, and somewhat drying while worn. This shade lasted for five hours on me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Trap (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Tarte Texas Toast (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Really Me (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Carnal, Broken, Manic, Hex, Crank Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Carnal Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium warm nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satiny sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that went on nicely and evenly. The lipstick was comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted. I found it just a bit moisturizing while worn. Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Carnal (DC, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Urban Decay Tantric, Lovelight, Ex-Girlfriend, Hitch Hike, Amulet Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Tantric Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “light nude-pink [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it applied unevenly and settled into lip lines from the get-go. The consistency was lightly creamy and balm-like, but I just couldn’t keep the color in place.

Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid | $28.00 | New, Permanent

Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid is the next generation of skin perfection and radiance. Use these shades to correct imperfections and play up your best features, all without having to lug around a whole contour kit. Unlike a lot of cream-based color correctors, our liquid formula is easy to use and always blends beautifully—whether you use a little or a lot. Special pigment technology provides a smooth, even application every time. (And we based our formula off of Naked Skin Concealer, so you know it’s weightless and crazy good.)

  • Pink Brightens dark areas
  • Yellow Corrects dullness
  • Peach Masks circles/spots

Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen | $20.00 | New, Permanent

There are two universal truths about black liquid liner: It can never be too black or too perfect. Nail the look every time with Perversion Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen. This super-smooth, free-flowing pen lays down blacker-than-black lines with absolute precision. Our waterproof formula glides on without skipping or pulling, and the ultra fine tip provides an insane amount of control for a flawless application. Create thin, fine lines and bold, thick lines like a total pro—even if you’re not! This pen is so good, even those who normally shy away from liquid liner will have their technique perfected in no time. Like all of our Perversion products, the color payoff is amazing (and intensely black!). And once you’ve applied it, the ink dries down quickly; won’t smudge, run or feather; and lasts ALL day.

  • Perversion Blackest black

Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner | $22.00 | New, Permanent

Liquid Liner was one of our original color products, and we’re always reinventing and improving it. Since we can never get enough color, we also wanted to expand our range with more dimensional shades and multiple finishes. The name comes from one of our photographers, who used to look in the lens and whisper, “Ooh, that’s razor sharp.” We thought the delivery was funny, but it also sounded like a good name for liquid liner. The precision brush really lives up to the moniker—it’s practically impossible to mess up. Still perfecting your technique? After giving the bottle a good shake, lean your elbow on a stable surface to keep your hand steady while you apply. Then, just draw down into your lashes so the upper part of the line is sharp and even.

  • Perversion Blackest black
  • Revolver Gunmetal with iridescent sparkle
  • Demolition Deep brown
  • Snakebite Metallic copper bronze
  • Push Navy
  • Street Dark green
  • Zodiac Smoky black with blue-green shift and blue-green sparkle

Perfect for all-night affairs and other scandalous activities, this revolutionary formula is also comfortable enough to wear every day. We loaded All Nighter Liquid Foundation with an INSANE amount of pigment (three times as much as Naked Skin Liquid Makeup!), so a little goes a long way. But the results are beautiful!
