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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Nocturnal

Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in a slim, cardboard palette with a dual-ended eye brush. The shades include “eight must-haves” from the permanent line along with “four exclusives from past sets.” I liked the palette overall; it was more consistent with the brand’s permanent range with respect to quality, though shades like Fireball (not as pigmented as the permanent version), Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (glitter fallout), and Heroine (sheer) could be better. The eyeshadows were, overall, pigmented, long-wearing (seven to eight hours), and blendable. It wasn’t hard to use them together, and I didn’t feel like it was a struggle to apply and blend them out.

If you’ve picked up any Urban Decay palettes in the last couple of years, this palette might be totally redundant. I think that this palette is most suitable for someone looking to try the brand’s formula or likes this specific color combination and would like it for traveling. It’s a smaller palette, though it is thicker than you’d expect as each eyeshadow only contains 0.01 oz. (a full-sized Urban Decay eyeshadow contains 0.05 oz.). It’s still a value-packed palette compared to purchasing individual shades, but it is not quite the deal that some of the larger palettes (like Afterdark, Naked, etc.) are. The palette is exclusive to Ulta and should launch today (if it hasn’t yet!) online, and it will be available in stores on January 22nd.

Fireball

Urban Decay Fireball Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, tangerine orange with iridescent pink pearl. It’s listed as a “Metallized” finish, but it seemed more like a Sheer Shimmer to me. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a lightweight, thinner texture that had noticeable slip. The color gravitated towards my lip lines, as it seemed thinner and lacked some of the gel-like quality of other shades in the range to keep the color from settling. Of course, it’s a pretty shade on as it has a subtle pink-to-peach shift in person, but it might be better layered over other shades or used with a lip primer. This shade lasted for three hours and was hydrating.

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick for Spring 2017

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick — Trap Queen, Big Bang, Rock Steady, Tryst, Menace, Amulet

This is Vice Liquid Lipstick—a waterproof formula so life-proof, it’s not going ANYWHERE until you take it off. (Just imagine the possibilities.) What makes Vice different? Our high-tech formula provides longer-lasting wear with ZERO transfer. Like our original formula, Vice Liquid Lipstick lays down intensely pigmented color. And the comfortable, nondrying wear sets it apart from other liquid lipsticks.

Choose from a huge range of 30 shades and two finishes—comfort matte and metallized. From neutrals with a UD edge to the bold brights color junkies crave, we’ve got something for everyone. Our lineup includes everything from must-have colors from our Vice Lipstick range to limited-edition shades you begged us to bring back.

January 19th at UD, late January/early February at other retailers
