Urban Decay Bang Vice LipstickUrban Decay Bang Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "bright orange-red [with a Cream finish]." It's a bold, bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy texture that had some slip but didn't feather or slide around too much. I noticed a little bit of color welled up in lip lines, but the darker/brighter color made it hard to tell. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was lightly hydrating while worn.
