Urban Decay Manic Vice LipstickUrban Decay Manic Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "rosy wine [with a Cream finish]." It's a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque, with a creamy, comfortable consistency that glided on easily and sat well on lips--it made them appear fuller and smoother--while lasting for five hours.
