Urban Decay Nighthawk is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a cream finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.11 oz.
Urban Decay Nighthawk Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "brown-red [with a Cream finish]." It's a deep, reddish brown with warmer undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff, though there was a slight translucency to the color. This could look even redder if you have naturally red-tinted lips. The texture was lightweight, moderately emollient, and glided on without tugging, but it felt more slippery than most shades in the finish. I didn't personally experience feathering, but it has enough slip that it might be an issue for others. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.
