Urban Decay Afterdark Vice LipstickUrban Decay Afterdark Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "medium-dark berry pink [with a Comfort Matte finish]." It's a deep, plum-berry with cool undertones and a fine, subtle pearl. It had more of a semi-matte to satin finish--not quite as satiny as others in the Comfort Matte finish but not truly matte. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging. It wore well for six hours, left behind a stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating.
