Disturbed

Urban Decay Disturbed Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay Disturbed Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep, burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, that applied decently but could have went on more evenly. The formula was thinner, a little watery, so it was harder to control-especially around the edges–and it didn’t self-level as it dried down, so any streaking became magnified as it dried down. It took about two to three minutes to dry down, and it remained lightly tacky for an hour (though it stopped lifting color after three minutes). It lasted for six hours and was non-drying.

The Vice Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” with “complete coverage in one coat” and “nondrying wear” that is “comfortable” and “waterproof.” The majority of the Metallized shades are not even close to one-coat coverage–maybe three or four or coats!–and did not layer evenly, plus they had a tendency to lose sparkle/glitter through wear. Whenever a shade wasn’t opaque in one coat, it often looked streaky or uneven. There were some shades that had fantastic, one-coat coverage, while others featured more medium, buildable coverage but several applied uneven, patchy, and didn’t level or improve after drying down even with a second layer.

The consistency of the formula was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply, but the dry down was lengthy and some shades never fully felt dry (instead, lightly tacky). There was a learning curve to applying and wearing these, too, as they were unforgiving if you accidentally press your lips together before the formula has dried down–the formula is quite tacky as it dries down and pressed lips together results in color lifting away. The wear varied from shade to shade (and between finishes) from four to eight hours, and so far, most were true to the nondrying claim, at least. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with them. They were difficult to remove compared to most products; I had the best luck saturating a cotton pad with eye or lip makeup remover (Neutrogena, Lancome, Shiseido, etc.), yet curiously were not that long-wearing on me (relative to liquid lipsticks)–they seemed to develop a little tackiness with any meal or drink (even just water) and degraded from there. Overall, the formula was extremely disappointing after the successful Vice lipstick launch last year.

Rapture

Urban Decay Rapture Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay Rapture Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark plum with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, and it was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers–but it took five minutes to dry with two coats (three minutes with one coat), and if I touched my lips together at all during that time, the color pulled away from my lips, leaving a patchy mess that had to be fully removed and redone. Urban Decay does specifically say not to press lips together while it’s drying, but the long dry down time makes that a lot more annoying. It felt comfortable, featherweight, and was nondrying for the six hours it lasted.

ZZ

Urban Decay ZZ Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay ZZ Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium purple with warm, magenta undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on decently but looked slightly patchy in places. This shade also seemed to cling more and emphasize the natural texture and lines on my lips after it dried down, though it did not look “cracked” due to the thinner formula. The color faded somewhat unevenly from the center of the mouth, and it lasted for six and a half hours before it had faded to the point of needing to be reapplied/removed. I could reapply the color on top of it without fully removing, but if there was a lot of patchiness, the lack of opacity in the color itself did me no favors (use two coats!).

I only purchased backtalk, and it is already packed to send back. I was most disappointed in the formula itself. I love the vice lipstick line & have the same shade so I had high expectations. Color went on fine , creamy & was pigmented though the doe foot was sort of awkwardly long so I’d imagine it’s not as easy for darker colors. I wore it for 5 hours with lip liner and when I went to the bathroom I noticed it was completely flaking off and crumbling onto my lips. I was really busy at work so I couldn’t even say when it started to wear off but I did feel like it started to disappear 3-4 hours in. I only drank water and coffee through a straw and had a buttered roll so no different than any other day. Most disappointing as I have other liquid lips that last way longer , 6hrs miminally where they start to fade but I am usually able to get through a full work day with it looking decent , especially light – med tone shades.

So sad to here it, Anne! They haven’t seemed particularly long-wearing for me yet either (most liquid lipsticks are 6-8 hours easily).

Yes definitely. To see it on my teeth where it crumbled, reminded me of what I hated about liquid lipsticks when first trying them out – LC cough lol. There are so many out there now that I love. I am waiting on the new kvd shades next week which I know I like, and hopefully will like the new mufe ones

I don’t know what to say. We FINALLY get a dry-down that isn’t a moisture sucking vacuum on ones lips, but it needs to be babied: lips can’t touch while drying, most require more than one coat, etc. I DO love how they look, however! No cracking or crinkling. No parched appearance.

If they lasted for 8+ hours, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad, but they don’t last much longer than the regular Vice line for me (so far)!

Yep, that’s exactly what I expected from seeing your sneak peek. I didn’t really understand why everyone thought the swatches looked great, they seemed incredibly streaky and uneven to me!

I didn’t have high hopes after initially swatching 🙁 They aren’t all bad, but they aren’t knocking it out of the park.

I like the colors of Disturbed and Rapture, but not the performance of Disturbed, and I don’t care for the matte finish on Rapture — that muted of a color only works on me if it’s got some shine or sparkle to it.
