Urban Decay Smog, Roach, Bruise XX Vintage Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Smog Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep coppery bronze [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and gold, green, and bronze pearl that give it more of a metallic finish. The consistency was creamy, lightly emollient but not too slippery, and glided on with ease. It had nearly opaque coverage that applied smoothly and evenly. This shade wore well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn. Colour Pop DM (P, $6.00) is less glossy, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Bronze Shimmer (P, $17.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Triptych (P, $18.00) is brighter, lighter (80% similar). Colour Pop PYT (P, $6.00) is cooler, lighter (80% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Topazio (LE, $33.00) is less pigmented, brighter, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Roach Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep burgundy-brown [with a Cream finish].” It’s a muted, dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine bronze shimmer with subtle, multi-colored pearl. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly, though it slid around somewhat on the lips, so I could see “lines” if I pressed my lips together. The texture was lightweight and comfortable to wear, but it had more slip than other shades in the Cream finish. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Aperture (03) (LE, $53.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Maneater (LE, $6.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Aaron (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop DM (P, $6.00) is less glossy, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Conspiracy (P, $17.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Zebra (LE, $6.00) is less glossy, cooler, darker (85% similar). MAC I Get So OOC (LE, $17.00) is less glossy, cooler, lighter (90% similar). MAC Bronze Shimmer (P, $17.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Bruise Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “sheer deep burgundy red with green shift [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a brighter, medium-dark reddish plum with a lightly glossy finish. There’s a very, very fine bit of bluish-teal pearl, but it’s barely-there–I can’t really detect a shift, even when just swatched on my arm and twisting it in every different direction. The texture was smooth, moderately emollient that glided on easily and had a wettish feel going on. This shade was lightly hydrating and lasted for five and a half hours, and it left behind a stain. Tom Ford Beauty Make Me (Lip Color) (P) is more muted, darker (95% similar). MAC Diva Antics (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Hang Up (P, $17.00) is darker (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.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette ($54.00 for 0.48 oz. ) is a new, permanent neutral-hued palette that features 12 shades with one shade that’s shimmery and 11 that are touted as matte (a few have faint sparkle/shimmer in the pan but none of them looked shimmery on the skin to my eye). I don’t have an exact release date, just that it will be debuting in September and will be available at all retailers that sell Urban Decay (but I’d expect it to launch on Urban Decay’s website first).

If you’re unfamiliar with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow formula, it is described as having a “velvety texture,” “rich color,” “serious staying power and blendability.” Some the brand’s best mattes are ones like Riff, which really did combine high color payoff with a silky, smooth, and blendable texture that applies well on bare skin as well as with traditional eye primer, but other times, their matte formula has left something to be desired, where the texture has been thin, chalky, dusty, and/or less pigmented.

Naked Ultimate Basics sits somewhere in-between for me overall; the texture is nowhere near as smooth or as finely-milled as I have seen from the brand, but it isn’t as dusty nor as dry as the shades in Naked Smoky. The press was firm enough that the majority of shades didn’t kick up too much excess product in the pan, had decent pigmentation, wear, and blendability, but there were some troublemakers (Instinct, Lethal, Magnet) that were harder to work with, even over primer. Most of the matte shades darkened slightly when I applied them to my skin compared to how they appeared in their pans.

Blow is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had good pigmentation paired with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan. The color lasted for eight hours. MAC Preferred Blonde (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #1 (LE) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Dazzlelight (P, $16.00) is cooler, more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I514 Pink Ivory (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Vanilla (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Joy to the Pearl (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). theBalm #18 (P, $6.50) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Mixologist (P) is warmer (95% similar).

LORAC Dream Girl #10 (LE, $19.00) is cooler, more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Apricot Blend #1 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Pearl (LE) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

Nudie is a light-medium peach-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly dusty and thinner, which made it more prone to sheering out on the skin. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. Urban Decay Stark (P, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Macaroon (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Becca Ombre Nudes #1 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay ABC Gum (P, $19.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Fawn (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Cream (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Viseart Beige (P) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Commando is a muted, medium-dark beige with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had a very soft, smooth feel to it that blended out nicely on the skin but didn’t lose its intensity immediately. This shade had good color coverage and lasted for eight hours. Colour Pop Hanky Panky (P, $5.00) is warmer (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Nude Smoke (24) (P, $39.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Hearts & Crafts (LE) is brighter (90% similar). Too Faced Cookie Dough (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Infinity #2 (P) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Clinique Nude Rose (P, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tarte View from the Taupe (LE) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Guerlain Hey Nude (04) (P, $34.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Cove (LE) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tempted is a medium-dark taupe with a hint of rosiness and warmer undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture was dustier, and it was harder to apply this one evenly without the use of primer underneath. It had semi-opaque color payoff and started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Heaven Knows (LE) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Haux (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Les Cendres #2 (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Almond Truffle (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Dusty Lilac (LE, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #2 (P) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Tarte For Realism (LE) is darker (80% similar). Urban Decay DTF (LE, $19.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Instinct is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade had a much firmer press to it, which made it hard to get the product out of it and resulted in semi-sheer coverage. It didn’t blend well, and I couldn’t really get the color to build-up much either, as it did not respond well to layering. What little I managed to apply lasted for seven hours from what I could tell. MAC Tickety Boo (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Givenchy Rose Dentelle (3) (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Cashmere (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). theBalm Feisty (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Petal Pusher (P, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Natural Beauty (LE) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Mauve (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Amnesia Rose (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Sorbet (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Nooner (P, $19.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lethal is a deep plum with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, while the consistency was lightly dusty but not too thin and blended out decently. It would be easier to work with over a primer, but it was manageable on bare skin. I found this shade to be buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. It wore well for eight hours before creasing slightly. Ciate Day Dream (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Doe-a-Deer (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Power Plum (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte My Own Cotes de Rhone (LE) is more muted (90% similar). Kat Von D Hybrid Moments (P) is lighter (90% similar).

Natasha Denona Aubergine (24V) (P, $29.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Plum (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Nightcap (P) is brighter (90% similar).

Inglot #325 (P, $6.00) is warmer, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pre-Game is a light, buttery yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not fully opaque, that applied evenly and blended out without any trouble. The texture was soft, a bit powdery, but it sat well on the skin and did not look dry. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear. MAC Real Fantasy (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Buxom Mix & Mingle (P, $12.00) is warmer, lighter (95% similar). Sephora Puppy Love (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Moulder (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Extra Bitter is a medium-dark, coppery-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable; it wasn’t too powdery nor was it too firm in the pan. It was one of the best-performing shades in the palette. The pigmentation was fantastic, and it wore well for a solid eight hours. Smashbox Throwback (P) is lighter (95% similar). Coloured Raine Moments (P, $6.99) is cooler, more muted, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Summer Yum (P, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Dogman (LE) is warmer (90% similar).

Faith is a soft, medium-dark brown with warm, yellowy undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow has a soft, silky consistency that was smooth and easy to work with on bare skin, as it applied with rich coverage and blended out nicely. This shade stayed on for eight hours when I tested it. Viseart Dark Matte #1 (P) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Lockout (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Becca Cognac (LE) is more muted, darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Hipster (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Allegro (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar).

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

Lockout is a dark brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It is just slightly darker and less yellow-based compared toFaith (but I do think they are too similar to have in the same palette–they could have made this one darker or much cooler to add more differentiation). The texture was soft, blendable, and silky without being powdery or dusty. It had good pigmentation and applied evenly, while the color lasted well for eight hours. Kevyn Aucoin Coco (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Viseart Warm Mattes #11 (P) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M630 Sweet Chestnut (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Urban Decay Beware (P, $19.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Magnet is a muted, dark gray with a hint of purplish undertones paired with a mostly matte finish. You can see subtle sparkle in the pan close-up, but it did not translate onto the lid. The texture was thin, drier, and dusty, which caused it to sheer out and apply unevenly. This shade was difficult to use alone; it was better used to darken other shades, as it just looked uneven and patchy alone. It lasted for seven hours on me. NARS Delphes #2 (LE, $25.00) is warmer, lighter (95% similar). MAC Interior Life (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Concrete Jungle (P, $6.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Iron (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Smoked Cocoa #4 (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #10 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Crazy Paris #5 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Scene (P, $16.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Hello Kitty Playdate (LE) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blackjack is a deep black with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, a little dusty, and fairly blendable, though it is not the easiest black eyeshadow to work with. I liked it best applied in sheerer layers to minimize any unevenness/patchiness that might occur. The application issues with this one seemed mostly resolved if used over a primer as well. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably. Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00)(100% similar). Tarte Fashionista (LE)(100% similar). Kat Von D Black Metal (LE) is cooler, darker (95% similar). Dior Smoky Sequins #5 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Noir (P, $23.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette Overview, Photos, & Swatches

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette
Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette ($35.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a limited edition palette that includes 12-pans of lipstick with all shades from the brand’s permanent range of colors. There are two variations available, and between the two palettes, there are three shades that overlap–714, Big Bang, and Firebird. Junkie is slightly cooler in tone (particularly the second row) and includes a few less “traditional” shades. This palette is exclusive to Sephora and should launch sometime in September (I don’t have an exact date).

Value

A full-sized Vice Lipstick retails for $17.00 and contains 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. The palette retails for $35.00 and contains 0.24 oz., which works out to be $145.83/oz. — that’s actually impressive, because it’s just small enough that I thought it might be more expensive by the ounce, but one could easily see the value in having 12 shades for $1.00 more than the cost of two full-sized shades. Another way to look at value is by how many shades there are, which would out to be $2.92 per shade. There is also a twist-up lip brush included in the palette, and there is obviously some value there.

It is important to think about your own habits and preferences, though, because not everyone applies their lip colors with a brush or will take the extra time to do so. It is also less portable than carrying one shade in your bag for touch-ups during the day. I think the palette is small enough to travel well, but it is still a medium-sized palette. If you are the type of person who likes to apply their lipstick with a brush (or doesn’t mind having to do so) and will carry the palette with them/isn’t concerned about touch-ups, it is a great value.

Overview

As I just swatched the 120-shade line a few months ago, I’m not going to be extensively reviewing or photographing these (there are just so, so many lip color releases this year that I’m behind as is and would like to feature other brands and formulas as well!). I would consider this an overview or initial impressions, rather than an in-depth review. I hope you understand! 🙂

What I did do was test several shades from the palette, ones that did not perform as well in full-size and ones that did, as well as checking across finishes, for consistency with the full-size shades. In general, the colors, finishes, and application remained the same across the shades. The biggest difference being the texture, as applying directly from the tube yielded more product on the lips than when applying from the pan with a lip brush–this is inherent between the two types of application, as I get a similar weight and feel if I apply the same color from the full-sized, twist-up tube with a lip brush as I did by applying with a lip brush from the pan of color.  Here are the differences I noticed in color/texture:

  • Wrath had slightly more slip.
  • Vanity Kills had less shine and application improved with a lip brush (compared to from the tube).
  • Speedball was slightly less emollient, which made it easier to apply more evenly (but it still was uneven).
  • Junkie seemed a smidgen less emollient but still gathered in lip lines.

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette Overview, Photos, & Swatches

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette
Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette ($35.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a limited edition palette that includes 12-pans of lipstick with all shades from the brand’s permanent range of colors. There are two variations available, and between the two palettes, there are three shades that overlap–714, Big Bang, and Firebird. Blackmail runs a bit warm and has more traditional shades. This palette is exclusive to Ulta/Macy’s and should launch sometime in September (I don’t have an exact date).

Value

A full-sized Vice Lipstick retails for $17.00 and contains 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. The palette retails for $35.00 and contains 0.24 oz., which works out to be $145.83/oz. — that’s actually impressive, because it’s just small enough that I thought it might be more expensive by the ounce, but one could easily see the value in having 12 shades for $1.00 more than the cost of two full-sized shades. Another way to look at value is by how many shades there are, which would out to be $2.92 per shade. There is also a twist-up lip brush included in the palette, and there is obviously some value there.

It is important to think about your own habits and preferences, though, because not everyone applies their lip colors with a brush or will take the extra time to do so. It is also less portable than carrying one shade in your bag for touch-ups during the day. I think the palette is small enough to travel well, but it is still a medium-sized palette. If you are the type of person who likes to apply their lipstick with a brush (or doesn’t mind having to do so) and will carry the palette with them/isn’t concerned about touch-ups, it is a great value.

Overview

As I just swatched the 120-shade line a few months ago, I’m not going to be extensively reviewing or photographing these (there are just so, so many lip color releases this year that I’m behind as is and would like to feature other brands and formulas as well!). I would consider this an overview or initial impressions, rather than an in-depth review. I hope you understand! 🙂

What I did do was test several shades from the palette, ones that did not perform as well in full-size and ones that did, as well as checking across finishes, for consistency with the full-size shades. In general, the colors, finishes, and application remained the same across the shades. The biggest difference being the texture, as applying directly from the tube yielded more product on the lips than when applying from the pan with a lip brush–this is inherent between the two types of application, as I get a similar weight and feel if I apply the same color from the full-sized, twist-up tube with a lip brush as I did by applying with a lip brush from the pan of color.  Here are the differences I noticed in color/texture:

  • Amulet seemed slightly rosier in the palette.
  • Big Bang didn’t seem quite as glittery applied.
