Purgatory

Urban Decay Purgatory Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of fuchsia and plum sparkle. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The consistency was thin, watery, and difficult to apply evenly, as the color appeared patchy and settled into lip lines. It took a long time to dry, and it felt lightly tacky for an hour after applying it. It lasted for five hours before color started to fade noticeably.

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.

Urban Decay Naked Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly with some color that pulled into lip lines and dried there, so there was a “cracked” look to the finish when I smiled. The consistency was thin but comfortable to wear, but it did not seem to dry down fully–there was a touch of tackiness that lingered (but it did not pull up color after the initial “dry down” phase). This shade lasted for four and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Trivial

Urban Decay Trivial Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, but the color pooled in my lip lines and made them appear deeper. The consistency was smooth, thin but not watery, and felt good going on. This shade started to fade after three hours on me–incredibly fast!–and felt slightly tacky after a mere sip of water.

Going Native

Urban Decay Going Native Naked Flushed Cheek Palette ($34.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes a bronzer, highlighter, and blush poured into a single pan (so each shade does touch!) with the bronzer taking up the most space and the highlighter taking up the least. Each shade is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” and “blend beautifully.” The blush was a real bust–firm, stiff, lacking pigmentation–and the bronzer was just so-so, though the highlighter was quite nice.
