Urban Decay Hex Vice LipstickUrban Decay Hex Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "deep red wine [with a Mega Matte finish]." It's a deep red with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly, though the texture was firmer and had some drag to it when I applied it. This shade is more comfortable to apply with a lip brush. On me, it wore for over seven hours, left a reddish stain behind, and it was moderately drying.
