Urban Decay Pallor, Asphyxia, Oil Slick XX Vintage Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Pallor Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “frosted lavender with gray shift [with a Cream finish].” It’s a muted, dark purple with subtle, warmer undertones and fine pearl. It’s an interesting and more complex color due to the “gray shift” in it (less of a shift, more of a dash of color that gives it a more muted appearance), but it doesn’t apply that well. The more slippery texture enabled the color to sit into lip lines from the very beginning, which only worsened as it wore. The pigmentation was semi-opaque, but it was hard to apply this shade evenly (and I later tried with a lip brush with little improvement–it needs a liner). The color lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. (No dupes as of the initial posting of this review!)

Urban Decay Plague, UV-B, Frostbite XX Vintage Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Plague Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright purple with pink undertone [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium-dark reddish-purple with warm undertones and fine pink and light blue pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly, but the slippery texture of the formula made it prone to emphasizing and settling into lip lines, unfortunately. It wasn’t as noticeable as the other two shades, though. I imagine this would be easier to find a coordinating lip liner for, which would alleviate the issue of settling. The color wore well for four and a half hours, left a subtle stain behind, and was hydrating. Urban Decay Mad Hatter (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Model Behavior (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Pure Heroine (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Milani Raving Matte (08) (LE, $8.99) is darker, better quality, less glossy (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Scandal (226) (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Own the Look (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
