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.

Holiday 2017 Set

Hourglass Holiday 2017 Set Confessional Refillable Lipstick Set ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) contains three lipsticks; it comes with one lipstick with full packaging and two refills. All three are full-sized, and the refills can be used without swapping them into the full case if desired. I’m a fan of the formula, which is more pigmented, hydrating, and comfortable to wear but find the amount of product per lipstick (0.03 oz.) to be hard to ignore.

Value

There are a few ways to assess the value, since the brand has their Confession lipstick available with full packaging ($34.00 each) and lighter, refill packaging ($22.00 each). For the purposes of value, I wanted to make it the most straightforward: one lipstick in full packaging and two in refill. They are full-sized in the set, so there was a total value of $78. If we looked at the equivalent in refill packaging only (since some may have no issue opting out of the full packaging), then the total value would have been $66 (I don’t think it would be remotely fair to consider three as full packaging since they are definitely not).

Champagne Discovery

Bite Beauty Champagne Discovery Holiday 2017 Lip Set ($35.00 for 0.36 oz.) contains a lipgloss, lip pencil, and a multi-use cream stick (can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks). All three shades are part of the brand’s permanent offerings, so they can be purchased individually as well. They are full-sized products, so the set has a great value at $65 worth of products.

I did notice some issues with packaging, though, as my Multistick had a fault twist mechanism and damaged stick (cosmetic damage, only) and my lip pencil had no point so I had to sharpen to expose product and there was a tip of wax after sharpening. If any readers pick up the trio, I’d love to hear if there were any discrepancies in packaging, as it struck me as odd. The products themselves were consistent with the permanent versions that I have reviewed previously. Edit: I wanted to update and let you know that Bite reached out to get batch codes for the Multistick and Lip Pencil so they can look into it 🙂

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.

Freshly Baked

Too Faced Freshly Baked Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a fluid, smooth consistency that was easy to spread across the lips for even coverage and crisp lines. The downside was the dry down was intensely matte–it cracked around my lip lines and looked dry, clingy while feeling uncomfortably dry on. It lasted for four and a half hours and had some flakes that came away after a meal, but it was quite drying.

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.
