Urban Decay Asphyxia Vice LipstickUrban 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.
