Crank

Urban Decay Crank Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage–not even remotely close to opaque!–in a single layer. This one needed three layers to yield full coverage, and then it took an obscene (15 minutes) time to dry down. One layer took closer to two minutes to dry down, and it did dry down fully. The texture was thinner and on the watery side, which resulted in the sheerer coverage along with poorer, uneven application. The color lasted for five hours before there was more noticeable fading, and the formula felt non-drying.

The Vice Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” with “complete coverage in one coat” and “nondrying wear” that is “comfortable” and “waterproof.” The majority of the Metallized shades are not even close to one-coat coverage–maybe three or four or coats!–and did not layer evenly, plus they had a tendency to lose sparkle/glitter through wear. Whenever a shade wasn’t opaque in one coat, it often looked streaky or uneven. There were some shades that had fantastic, one-coat coverage, while others featured more medium, buildable coverage but several applied uneven, patchy, and didn’t level or improve after drying down even with a second layer.

The consistency of the formula was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply, but the dry down was lengthy and some shades never fully felt dry (instead, lightly tacky). There was a learning curve to applying and wearing these, too, as they were unforgiving if you accidentally press your lips together before the formula has dried down–the formula is quite tacky as it dries down and pressed lips together results in color lifting away. The wear varied from shade to shade (and between finishes) from four to eight hours, and so far, most were true to the nondrying claim, at least. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with them. They were difficult to remove compared to most products; I had the best luck saturating a cotton pad with eye or lip makeup remover (Neutrogena, Lancome, Shiseido, etc.), yet curiously were not that long-wearing on me (relative to liquid lipsticks)–they seemed to develop a little tackiness with any meal or drink (even just water) and degraded from there. Overall, the formula was extremely disappointing after the successful Vice lipstick launch last year.

Menace

Urban Decay Menace Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a bright, fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque in one layer, with a smooth, thin but not watery consistency that applied the color fairly evenly. The color lasted for six hours before fading more noticeably, and the fading wasn’t as even/flattering as I have come across in other formulas. The formula was comfortable to wear and non-drying over time.

Amulet

Urban Decay Amulet Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic, “matte” finish. There was a sheen, but there was still the illusion of a more matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, and it could be made opaque with a second coat. The consistency was smooth, thin without being watery, and covered very evenly and smoothly. This one was one of the better shades for coverage and application, but it never, ever fully dried down. It took about three minutes for it to mostly dry down, but it remained a little tacky and began breaking down after four and a half hours of wear. The formula was non-drying on me.

Disturbed

Urban Decay Disturbed Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep, burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, that applied decently but could have went on more evenly. The formula was thinner, a little watery, so it was harder to control-especially around the edges–and it didn’t self-level as it dried down, so any streaking became magnified as it dried down. It took about two to three minutes to dry down, and it remained lightly tacky for an hour (though it stopped lifting color after three minutes). It lasted for six hours and was non-drying.

Sneak Peek: Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks Photos & Swatches

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a new, permanent formula that launches January 19th on Urban Decay’s website. The formula will be available in 30 shades, and I have 25 of those shades swatched (apologies, I do not have the other five!). I’ll try to get at least one set of reviews up before the 19th, but the majority will come after that as liquid lipsticks typically tend to take awhile to test (only one or two a day).
