Urban Decay Carnal Vice LipstickUrban Decay Carnal Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "medium warm nude [with a Comfort Matte finish]." It's a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satiny sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that went on nicely and evenly. The lipstick was comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted. I found it just a bit moisturizing while worn. ColourPop Ink Blot (LE, $7.00) is lighter (95% similar).
