Round-up: Urban Decay Metallized Vice Lipsticks Overview

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Metallized Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to be like the Cream finish, just with added pearl. They’re more like a hybrid between Cream and Sheer Shimmer, as they had more slip and were thinner compared to the Creams, overall. Some shades were very opaque, while others were more semi-sheer to semi-opaque. Only one shade (Big Bang) had more noticeable shimmer, and the rest had finer pearl/shimmer that was often subtler than obvious. The wear ranged from three to six hours with deeper, richer shades (like reds) wearing the longest. The formula was typically lightly hydrating. For more on how the finish compares to other shades, please see this post.

Round-up: Urban Decay Mega Matte Vice Lipsticks Overview

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Mega Matte Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is the most matte finish of the six. They tended to have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation with a firmer, denser consistency that sometimes dragged or tugged at the lips. The formula was thinner and clingier on the lips, but it often wore longer than other finishes–but at a price, as this finish was typically drying on me. For more on how the finish compares to other shades, please see this post.

Round-up: Urban Decay Cream Vice Lipsticks Overview

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Cream Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) encompasses the most shades in the Vice line-up. The finish is most comparable to the original Revolution formula as well (and it has several shades that were carried over). The texture is lightweight with moderate tackiness, while coverage ranged from semi-opaque to opaque. There is a noticeable shine, good wear (four to six hours), and a hydrating element to the formula. I found this finish to be the most forgiving applied, as it often made my lips look smoother and plumper. For more on how the finish compares to other shades, please see this post.

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 Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

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. Colour Pop Trap (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is darker (80% similar). Tarte Texas Toast (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Really Me (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Queen B (P, $21.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Colour Pop Dopey (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Trance Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “nude-mauve shimmer [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a light-medium, peachy-brown with warm undertones and fine pink and pale gold pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a smooth, light-medium consistency that glided on without tugging and sat fairly well on the lips, as the color didn’t gravitate into lip lines. It had more slip than a cReam, and it was as pigmented as most of the Metallized range has been on average. This shade lasted for four hours and was nicely moisturizing. Urban Decay Peyote (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Gracieuse (DC, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Heather Rose (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Amorosa (487) (LE, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Guerlain Galante (DC, $55.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Rouge Angelique (174) (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Backtalk Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “mauve nude-pink [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a creamy, very smooth consistency that easily applied to the lips with even coverage. This shade wore well for five hours and was just lightly hydrating overall. Tarte Cabana Boy (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Sake (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (DC, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Smashbox Audition (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Slowburn (246) (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Contempo (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Mauve (P, $21.00) is brighter (90% similar). NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Faux (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Clueless (LE, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Criminal (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Driftwood (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Rush Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink-mauve [with a Cream finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a creamy, smooth consistency that had some density to it and felt comfortable to wear, but it didn’t slide around over time. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating. Urban Decay Rush (DC, $22.00) is less pigmented, less glossy (95% similar). MAC Modesty (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Shiraz (P, $24.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Wrong Number (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Slow Burn (P, $30.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Shiseido Sweet Desire (RD714) (P, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bahama Brown (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever C211 (P, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Sheer Rapture Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “dusty rose [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff that covered the lips evenly and gave it a soft tint of color. On more naturally reddened lips, it may not be as visible. The texture was lightly emollient, didn’t slide around or feel slippery on, and it stayed on well for four hours. The formula was lightly hydrating over time. Urban Decay Sheer Beso (DC, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Aura (96) (P, $35.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Punch (LE, $16.00) is warmer (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.

A note on packaging: an average Revolution lipstick weighed 1.0 oz. in total, while a Vice Lipstick weighed 0.7 oz. in total. The weight distribution for a Revolution lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.8 oz. for the base. The weight distribution for a Vice lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.5 oz. for the base. The decrease is felt primarily in the sturdiness/weighted feeling of the base, so I find the older Revolutions to stand better on their own, but thrown into a cup or jar for storage, it doesn’t really matter. The more weighted base does give a greater sense of heft when applying, since you hold the base. The caps are the same total weight, but the Revolution caps are shorter and, as a result, maybe 1mm thicker, while the Vice caps are longer and spread the same weight of material over a larger area. All but two out of 120 lipstick caps felt very secure, and then about four were extremely secure and difficult to uncap, but otherwise, there is a soft “click” and the caps seem to stay on without easily coming off. All that being said, they seem to be the same packaging used in the Gwen Stefani and Alice Through the Looking Glass collaborations, though the interior tube felt a little higher-end, even though they all weigh the same. Revolution Lipsticks were $22.00 for 0.09 oz., which works out to be $244.44/oz., and these are $17.00 for 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. So while the packaging does feel less substantial and cheaper, you are paying $5 less and getting more for your money, but if you really liked the heavier base of Revolution lipsticks, you might miss that feeling with the new packaging.
