Urban Decay Backfire is a very warm-toned, dark purple with a metallic finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.11 oz.
Urban Decay Backfire Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, dark purple with warm undertones and iridescent shimmer. It looked a lot warmer applied than it did swatched, and I think that had a lot to do with it being semi-sheer, so the natural lip color came through quite a bit. The Metallized formula is supposed to be pigmented but I've found it to often be semi-sheer to medium in coverage rather than full coverage. The consistency was smooth, moderately emollient, and comfortable to apply and to wear, though I had a bit of color gather in my lip lines over time and it only lasted for three hours on me.
