Urban Decay Crank is a moderately warm-toned, medium purple with a semi-matte finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.11 oz.
Urban Decay Crank Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "bright berry fuchsia [with a Mega Matte finish]." It's a bright, medium-dark magenta purple with warm, pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly. The texture was firmer but didn't tug much on the lips when I applied it directly from the tube. It wore well for seven hours, left behind a strong stain, and was moderately drying. I also have no idea what happened during production, but the exterior of my tube has almost a copper sheen/overspray that disappears as soon as I used it and revealed a more magenta core.
