Sneak Peek: Urban Decay Liquid Vice Lipsticks (Fall 2017) Photos & Swatches

Urban Decay Liquid Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Liquid Vice Lipsticks ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) range sees an additional 10 shades added to the permanent lineup. All 10 shades are exclusive to Ulta.

First Impressions

Based solely on swatching and applying each shade to my lips once for lip swatches, the formula remains inconsistent from shade to shade. I am not a huge fan of the Vice Liquid Lipstick formula, as the coverage is all over the place, some feel incredibly tight and clingy on the lips and others don’t seem to fully dry down. The Metallized finish can be sheer to more opaque, and the more cream-like shadess tend to be opaque. Even the texture varied a lot from overly fluid to airy and mousse-like. For example, Unbroken hurt to wear just swatching, as it felt like it sucked the life out of my lips and shriveled them up and held them in that position. I appreciate the brand’s shade and texture ranges in the line-up but the formula is so far from perfected.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) range sees an additional 15 shades added to the permanent lineup. 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.

First Impressions

Based only on swatching and applying each shade to my lips for lip swatches, they seem fairly consistent with past releases of Vice Lipstick. I felt like some of the repeats (like Asphyxia) were marginally improved and more pigmented with less slip and greater hold. The Metallized finish remains inconsistent with medium to full coverage, sometimes more emollient and other times more gel-like with a slight tackiness (and better application as a result). The Cream and Comfort Mattes are typically quite good, and overall, Vice Lipstick remains one of my favorite formulas. I was a little confused as shades like Exhibition and Caliente, which feel like they already have similar shades available in the permanent line-up.

Fireball

Urban Decay Fireball Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a medium, peachy orange with warm, reddish undertones and a fine, pink and gold sparkle. It had sheer color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to medium coverage with three layers.

The formula is supposed to be a “smooth, silky powder” that adds “an instant peachy-pink glow” with “light-reflecting particles.” It’s a thin, dusty powder that has a very firm, dry texture to it, though the powder itself did not appear dry applied to the skin. I did, however, find that it did not blend out as easily as I expected as it seemed to absorb the natural oils on my face and adhere very strongly wherever it was initially applied. There were noticeable sparkles in the highlighter, so I would not recommend it for someone who did not like their sparkle or glitter. It wore well for six and a half hours on me before fading.

Ingredients

Talc, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Zea Mays Starch / Corn Starch, Silica, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Hectorite, Octyldodecanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Sorbic Acid, Tin Oxide, Dehydroacetic Acid, Aqua / Water.

Naked Heat

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette ($54.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes 12 eyeshadows with a mixture of shimmers and mattes in an array of warmer, more orange and red-based hues. The palette was good overall–not perfect–but a solid addition to the Naked range, and I suspect that for those who normally use primer, some of the issues I experienced would be resolved. The shimmers felt a little drier but thinner than the average shimmer eyeshadow from Urban Decay, while the mattes were dry but fairly pigmented, buildable, and blendable. It did not have the same luxurious, creamy consistency of the brand’s best mattes (I’m recalling something like Spike) but much more pigmented with more substantial texture (and therefore better application, even without primer) than the mattes in the Naked Smoky palette.

From a personal view, I did struggle to use this palette cohesively; I felt like I needed stronger shimmers or maybe a stronger yellow or lighter, brighter orange to add more contrast. The deeper browns ran together to the point where they could get lost next to each other in practice. The overall look and feel of the palette is a deeper, almost sultry warm smoky eye with more orange-brown and red-brown shades. It’s a lot less yellow and orange based compared to palettes like Viseart Warm Mattes and Natasha Denona Sunset, and it’s much darker and warmer than Anastasia Modern Renaissance. It actually reminded me of Too Faced Sweet Peach more than the aforementioned palettes.
