Urban Decay Scorched Vice LipstickUrban Decay Scorched Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a dark, coppery brown with warm, red undertones and fine gold and copper pearl for a more metallic finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer (seemed a bit more pigmented compared to the original launch) with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. It lasted for five hours and was moisturizing over time.

The pigment load is insane! Just one swipe provides an unbelievable laydown of color. Every shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels amazing! Our proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ gives the formula its super-creamy texture, rich payout and superior color dispersion. Yummy butter blend comforts, hydrates and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, never dry. Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado and abassu oils nourish and soften lips. Illipe butter (derived from Malaysian illipe trees) provides long-lasting moisture. Vitamin C and vitamin E provide a hit of antioxidants.
It's a shame that Scorched is a limited edition lipstick because it's a great product. It's non-drying, long-lasting, the colour is striking and it fades gracefully through meals and drinks. I hope Urban Decay re-releases it so that everyone has a chance to transform themselves into an ancient bronze deity.
