Too Faced Tropical Punch Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark magenta purple with warm, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and it dried down to a fully flat, matte finish within 20 seconds. The texture was fluid without being too thick or too thin, but the way it dried accentuated the look of lines and texture on my lips, which caused it to “crack” over time. On me, this shade lasted for over six hours but was very drying after three hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.23 oz. - $91.30 Per Ounce

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is supposed to apply l ike a gloss but dry to “an ultra-matte, opaque finish” that is “never dry, shriveled, or cracked” that should “last for hours.” Most of the shades are unforgiving once they dry down and emphasize lip lines, look “cracked” if you smile, though they feel lighter-weight than they look. It’s one of the more unflattering liquid lipsticks I have tried as many shades highlighted lip lines, and while the lipstick itself wasn’t extremely clingy, there was a dryness present there that, at times, made my lips tingle/ache. For me, the wear was between four and six hours, as a lot of the shades faded unevenly and were faster to breakdown than the average liquid lipstick. The formula is thin, more water-like (reminded me of ColourPop’s formula but sometimes thinner) with a fairly quick dry-down 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.

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 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.

Ciate Candy Glitter Flip ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a faint, pink sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which went on evenly for the most part with a bit of color separating at my deeper lip lines. This was the least transformative/least sparkly shade in the range and went from more like a satin finish to a faintly glittery one after pressing my lips together. It was easier to apply from the tube as it did not seem quite as fluid as a lot of shades in the range were. It was medium in weight, somewhat clingy, and lightly drying after four and a half hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.10 oz. - $190.00 Per Ounce

The Glitter Flip formula is supposed to be a transformative "glitter liquid lipstick," where it goes from lightly metallic at dry down to glitter-tastic after pressing lips together. For most shades, there was a definite difference in finish after pressing lips together, but I found that it required two to three presses (and too many more resulted in product lifting away) for moderate to heavy glitter exposure. The pigmentation ranged from shade to shade but was typically more opaque than not. The formula itself is heavy--one of the heavier liquid lipsticks I've tried in awhile--and the liquid lipstick itself was incredibly fluid during application, which made it harder to control along the edges. It dried down fairly quickly, and while the edges were a challenge, it wasn't too difficult to apply overall.

The brand touts it as "non-drying" and "totally comfortable" and that it "will last all night." It was a drying formula--from lightly to moderately drying--and felt dry and heavy on the lips (I think it felt worse than it often looked!), while the wear ranged from four to six hours. The way it wore was probably a bigger concern: heavier fading from the center of the mouth but noticeable flaking and chunks of color/glitter coming away after a few hours of wear (especially if I ate anything).

It's a cool product, and absolutely true that they were less work than layering a glitter over another a product, especially if you prefer a more "matte metallic" finish (would be harder to get glitter to stick to a flat, matte lipstick!). I think they will be best for someone who uses a lip liner prior, doesn't mind fussing with the edges, and has been longing for a finish like this--but only if one can tolerate a drying product!

Asphyxia

Urban Decay Asphyxia Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium, lavender purple with warm, pink undertones and cooler blue, silver, and icy violet pearl. It read more iridescent than a true duochrome to me with just a slight shift from bluish purple to warmer purple if I caught it at the right angle. It’s part of the “Cream” finish, and the downside was it just was not as opaque as it was supposed to be, though I felt this version (as it was released previously as a limited edition shade) had slightly more grip and tackiness with more body overall, which gave it slightly better payoff. It had semi-opaque coverage that was somewhat buildable with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that sat fairly well on the lips. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating.

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.

Ciate Luna Liquid Chrome ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with warm yellow undertones with lighter gold shimmer. I didn’t feel like this one shifted so much as it had a ton of gold pearl that gave it a metallic finish and the much lighter gold pearl contrasted a lot with the warmer pink base. It had medium color payoff that went on fairly evenly with just a touch of color pulling into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and mostly non-sticky on the lips, which made it comfortable and easy to wear over the three hours it lasted for.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.10 oz. - $180.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "color-shifting" lip gloss with a "high-shine" finish that can be used "on it's own as an intense [gloss]" or layered as a "lip topper." The brand doesn't say much else with respect to the product, but all in all, it really is a straightforward release. The consistency was smooth, almost creamy, but not too thick or too thin with slight tackiness that did not feel heavy or goopy on my lips. The coverage level was more medium than sheer or opaque with a high level of shimmer, which seemed to align with its ability to be used a "lip topper." Some of them shifted more than others, but they all had a very shiny finish that caught and reflected light well. The formula was comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and lasted between three and five hours on me.
