Cuffed Up

Urban Decay Cuffed Up Vice Lip Bond Glossy Liquid Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a light-medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish that eventually wore down to a satin and then semi-matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage in one layer
  • Lightweight, thinner initially, then slightly clingy but not uncomfortable
  • Moderately tacky after set but did not lift up color
  • Transfer-resistant, even after eating/drinking
  • Extremely long-wearing (10-12 hours of very good wear, product remained as fading until removal at 16 hours)

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.2 oz. - $125.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense color and instant'shine" in a single layer, while still being "comfortable to wear" and moisturizing. The brand also claims that it will wear for 16 hours, be transfer-proof and resistant to both water and food. The brand says to shake the tube prior to application.

I'm happy to report that the formula actually lived up to its claims! It was incredibly long-wearing where 16-hour wear was absolutely within possibilities, though I'd say that two greasier meals did start to break it down more noticeably (so around 12-14 hours, depending on eating schedules). It was food and water resistant; I didn't see any marks left on my glasses while drinking my morning lattes or water throughout the day. After a meal, it had almost no transfer and was very much intact on my lips except for the very inner area after an oil-heavy (pesto!) lunch.

They had rich color coverage that applied evenly, was fairly forgiving and not prone to settling noticeably into my lip lines. The liquid lipstick felt lighter and was thinner initially, but it set to a slightly clingy, more satin-like sheen after about 30 seconds. I noticed that it felt less clingy after about two hours and was very comfortable to wear. It didn't seem to dry out my lips at all after wearing the product for multiple days in a row.

It seemed unscented and had no discernible taste.

I just purchased this today, and I adore this shade! It also looks great with a darker lip liner to make it pop a bit more (I’m pale-skinned). The formula definitely stays tacky (and somewhat glossy) on the lips, but it lasts and lasts and doesn’t crease or rub off in little balls like some similar products. Finally, a baby pink shade that does not suck the moisture out of my lips! Perfect with smoky eyes or dark sunglasses while wearing your favorite little black top or band t-shirt. Be warned: this shade is already selling out (Text ‘Em is too). Grab it if you see it.
