Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) range sees an additional 15 shades added to the permanent lineup. In terms of where one can find them, five are exclusive to the brand’s website (Caliente, Control, Hawkeye, Plague, Heartache), while ten are available at other retailers. Also: a few of the shades were previously released as limited edition shades.
Based only on swatching and applying each shade to my lips for lip swatches, they seem fairly consistent with past releases of Vice Lipstick. I felt like some of the repeats (like Asphyxia) were marginally improved and more pigmented with less slip and greater hold. The Metallized finish remains inconsistent with medium to full coverage, sometimes more emollient and other times more gel-like with a slight tackiness (and better application as a result). The Cream and Comfort Mattes are typically quite good, and overall, Vice Lipstick remains one of my favorite formulas. I was a little confused as shades like Exhibition and Caliente, which feel like they already have similar shades available in the permanent line-up.
