Here’s a look at how well the newest additions to the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) lineup did! In terms of where one can find them, five are exclusive to the brand’s website (Caliente, Control, Hawkeye, Plague, Heartache), while ten are available at other retailers. Also: a few of the shades were previously released as limited edition shades.

Little Vices

Urban Decay Little Vices Lipstick Kit ($25.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains five travel-sized lipsticks with two exclusive shades (Double Crossed and Mad) and one just-released shade (Love Drunk). The three shades that have been released before were consistent with their full-sized versions. Mad was the weakest in the set, as it was sheer and patchier, and would be most suitable for use as a layering shade as a result. I liked the set overall and think that if the shades appeal, but the Metallized shades still under-performed (consistent with the permanent line).

Value

Full-sized Vice Lipsticks retail for $17.00 for 0.11 oz. or $154.55/oz. The set contained 0.15 oz. worth of lipsticks or $23.18 worth of product–I was actually surprised it wasn’t priced at $20 (Urban Decay is usually pretty reliable for value-packed sets). On the flip side, for less than the cost of two full-sized lipsticks, you would be getting five shades, and as long as you’re not someone who tends to finish lipsticks quickly, the set would still be worth checking out.

Urban Decay Hawkeye Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, emerald green pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips without tugging on them, but the color itself could have applied more evenly. The texture was thin but moderately emollient, which helped it apply without pulling on the lips, but it did not help keep the color in place. This shade wore well for four and a half hours but was prone to color getting in my deeper lip lines over time. It felt moisturizing while I wore it.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.11 oz. - $154.55 Per Ounce

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.

Urban Decay Exhibition Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark magenta purple with warmer, pink undertones and a satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly. The texture was smooth, creamy, and almost velvety–it was a little thicker but still creamy enough to apply easily and feel lightweight on the lips. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating, though there was a bit of color that had gravitated toward my deeper lip lines over time.

Urban Decay Roach Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep bronze with warm undertones and fine gold, pink, and bronze pearl. It had good color coverage, though it was not quite opaque. I felt like this version had a bit less shimmer compared to the limited edition version I reviewed previously. The consistency was lightly creamy, comfortable to wear and to apply, and sat fairly well on my lips, though there was a bit of color that sank into my deeper lip lines over time. It wore for just over four and a half hours on me but was moisturizing while worn.

Urban Decay Hideaway Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium pinky mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, and the color applied evenly across the lips. The texture was lightweight, velvety, and cream, so it glided on without tugging on the lips and felt comfortable to wear. There was slight color in my deeper lip lines after five hours of wear, though the formula felt lightly hydrating and had enough slip that I could smooth out the color by pressing my lips together.
