Urban Decay Plaid Vice LipstickUrban Decay Plaid Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "deep berry [with a Sheer finish]." It's a medium, pinky-red with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation--there was sheerness, but it packed enough color that it covered the lips evenly and noticeably. The texture was thin but not uncomfortable to wear. On me, it wore well for five hours, left behind a stain, and was lightly hydrating.
