Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Carnal Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium warm nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satiny sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that went on nicely and evenly. The lipstick was comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted. I found it just a bit moisturizing while worn. Colour Pop Ink Blot (LE, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Mocha (P, $19.50) is cooler (95% similar).

Urban Decay Broken Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “warm rose with tonal micro-shimmer [with a Sheer Shimmer finish].” It’s a muted, medium coppery-brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine gold shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage–enough to alter the lip color but still allow it to come through visibly. This shade lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating. Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (95% similar). Estee Lauder Tender Trap (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Manic Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “rosy wine [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque, with a creamy, comfortable consistency that glided on easily and sat well on lips–it made them appear fuller and smoother–while lasting for five hours. The formula felt hydrating to me when worn. Laura Mercier Iced Pomegranate (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Spice It Up! (P, $19.50) is less shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ines (LE, $36.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Vacay (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar).

Urban Decay Hex Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep red wine [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a deep red with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly, though the texture was firmer and had some drag to it when I applied it. This shade is more comfortable to apply with a lip brush. On me, it wore for over seven hours, left a reddish stain behind, and it was moderately drying. MAC Unknown Pleasures (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Bette (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Cerise (P, $24.00) is lighter, more muted (95% similar).

Urban Decay Crank Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright berry fuchsia [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark magenta purple with warm, pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly. The texture was firmer but didn’t tug much on the lips when I applied it directly from the tube. It wore well for seven hours, left behind a strong stain, and was moderately drying. I also have no idea what happened during production, but the exterior of my tube has almost a copper sheen/overspray that disappears as soon as I used it and revealed a more magenta core.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing. Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing. Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red). Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration. Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration. The Revolution formula–generally–felt a little more hydrating and pigmented on the lips, but these seem to wear a little longer; some of the shades that were in Revolution and are now in Vice (particularly the Creams, Sheers, and Sheer Shimmers) feel virtually the same on to me. The Comfort Mattes are the only ones that felt largely different–more satiny than matte, less dense compared to Matte Revolution.

A note on packaging: an average Revolution lipstick weighed 1.0 oz. in total, while a Vice Lipstick weighed 0.7 oz. in total. The weight distribution for a Revolution lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.8 oz. for the base. The weight distribution for a Vice lipstick was: 0.2 oz. for the cap alone, 0.5 oz. for the base. The decrease is felt primarily in the sturdiness/weighted feeling of the base, so I find the older Revolutions to stand better on their own, but thrown into a cup or jar for storage, it doesn’t really matter. The more weighted base does give a greater sense of heft when applying, since you hold the base. The caps are the same total weight, but the Revolution caps are shorter and, as a result, maybe 1mm thicker, while the Vice caps are longer and spread the same weight of material over a larger area. All but two out of 120 lipstick caps felt very secure, and then about four were extremely secure and difficult to uncap, but otherwise, there is a soft “click” and the caps seem to stay on without easily coming off. All that being said, they seem to be the same packaging used in the Gwen Stefani and Alice Through the Looking Glass collaborations, though the interior tube felt a little higher-end, even though they all weigh the same. Revolution Lipsticks were $22.00 for 0.09 oz., which works out to be $244.44/oz., and these are $17.00 for 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. So while the packaging does feel less substantial and cheaper, you are paying $5 less and getting more for your money, but if you really liked the heavier base of Revolution lipsticks, you might miss that feeling with the new packaging.

Broken looks like a nice shade for summer! I love Hex but have like 4 of the dupes already, so I’m good. Thank goodness for the dupes list !

I just ordered Manic from Ulta. It’s about as close to perfect as a lipstick shade and texture get for me, and I can’t wait!

Problem: I love EVERY single one of these! Thankfully, I have solid dupes for Carnel: MAC Royally Riotous, Hex: Diva and VG I. Possibly (?) Bittersweet for Crank, but far less convinced than with the first 2 I mentioned.
That leaves Broken, which reminds me of a MAC Lustre lipstick I love, but don’t have; Touch. Also, Manic, which up till now I never really considered! Both went on my “Wishlist”!

I was into two Ulta’s and a Sephora in Sacramento while visiting because my stores in Missoula, Montana and Spokane, Washington hadn’t put the lipsticks out before I left and I was surprised to find that more than 3/4 of the shades were gone!!! Several of the sales associates said that the day they put the Vice lipsticks out it looked like a scene from a movie where women where reaching over other women to grab the lipsticks they wanted. I think UD is doing okay with this new release. Thank you for doing all the hard work with these posts because I was able to get most of the ones I wanted on-line and will be able to get the one I couldn’t find in the future.

I’m really gonna miss the old carnal and matte revolution formula. I remember when the revolution formula was new and I remembered how cool it was that temptalia was featured. I feel like the matte revolution shades lasted really long for being a regular lipstick and I’ll really miss having that formula in carnal when my little stub of a lipstick finally runs out.

Just bought Carnal yesterday. Trying to find a good nude, for my deeper skin tone. I have “Broken” it’s a great color for adding a hint of shimmer and color. Hopefully “Carnal” works out !
