Urban Decay Seismic Vice LipstickUrban Decay Seismic Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "plum-purple with red shimmer [with a Sheer Shimmer finish]." It's a blackened berry with subtle, cooler undertones and a fine shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied evenly, and for a darker shade, just barely darkened lip lines as the consistency has a little density to it. The color lasted for four hours and was nicely hydrating. ColourPop Baewatch (PiP, $7.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented, less glossy (90% similar).
