Urban Decay Tantric Vice LipstickUrban Decay Tantric Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a "light nude-pink [with a Sheer finish]." It's a light-medium, pinky-peach with a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it applied unevenly and settled into lip lines from the get-go. The consistency was lightly creamy and balm-like, but I just couldn't keep the color in place. This shade lasted for two and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating.
