Urban Decay Rock Steady Vice LipstickUrban Decay Rock Steady Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "deep wine red [with a Cream finish]." It's a medium-dark red with subtle, warm red undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny consistency. The texture was light-medium in weight with a little more density, though it wasn't heavy to wear. It applied with smooth, even color that made the lips appear plumper and smoother. The color lasted for over six hours and was lightly hydrating overall. I didn't experience feathering myself, but it did have enough slip that it might be an issue for others. Urban Decay Rock Steady (LE, $18.00) is less glossy (95% similar).
