Editor's Review

Urban Decay Checkmate Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "pink-fuchsia [with a Comfort Matte finish]." It's a bold, bright medium pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented and yielded full, even coverage that was smooth and didn't pull into lip lines over time. The color lasted for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Saucy Little Darling (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Possession (Right) (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Magnus (P, $36.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Love at First Bite (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Low Rider (P, $26.00) is more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bitten (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Force of Love (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Givenchy Rose Flanelle (202) (P, $37.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C306 (DC, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Never Enough (P, $32.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Flamingo (P, $57.00) is more muted (90% similar). ColourPop Hello Fruity (LE, $9.00) is less shimmery, darker, less pigmented (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Tahiti Pink (P, $37.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Shiseido Pink Flash (214) (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). Bite Beauty #064 (P, $18.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). ColourPop Bling Ring (LE, $7.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). Guerlain Gracy (DC, $58.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Givenchy Rose Graphique (P, $37.00) is more muted (85% similar). Dior Delight (069) (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar).

Out of ~12 Vice lipsticks I purchased, this was the only one to get returned. Checkmate applied unevenly and instantly settled in my lip creases. Shame because is such a beautiful color, but Tryst and Phone Call are similar enough to justify not keeping Checkmate too.
