Sneak Peek: Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks Photos & Swatches

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).

Uniformly Fabulous

MAC Uniformly Fabulous Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a blackened purple with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not opaque, in a single layer. The texture was smooth, thinner but not watery, and spread easily across the lips for even coverage. It dried down and did not appear “cracked” when I smiled. This shade wore well for eight hours but was drying.

The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula is supposed to be pigmented, last eight hours, and be “non-feathering.” They are typically pigmented and long-wearing, but the quality of the formula is all over the place–some shades wear down evenly, aren’t too drying, and apply well, while other shades are patchy, streaky, or prone to flaking (and also terribly drying!).

The one product I really love are their Cheek Pops, but I haven’t loved much else (eyeshadow/lip products) in the same vein. I like their skincare, and I think it’s effective without being too pricey.

Lancome Polished Rose (01) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a medium rosy pink with cooler undertones and warmer gold and pink pearl. It had medium, somewhat buildable coverage with a very glossy finish. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, tacky, and did not leave “lines” if I pressed my lips together. I did have a bit of the pinker base settle into my lip lines, though. The gloss lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time.

The Le Metallique formula is supposed to have “full-coverage” with a “rich, creamy texture” that is hydrating and long-wearing. First and foremost, if you do not like tacky gloss, you’ll want to stay far away from these; the formula is very tacky and is a thicker, denser formula. They are longer wearing as a result, though, and most shades fell within four to six hours of wear for me and retain a really high-shine, high-gloss finish that almost looks wet and lasts throughout the wear time. Most shades were semi-opaque to opaque, but as the formula was thicker, I would hesitate to add more product to get more coverage. They seemed to have no discernible scent or taste to me.
