Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay F-Bomb Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “classic red [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It was nicely pigmented with full color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was dense enough that it helped to fill in lines and make lips appear plumper and smoother. This shade wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating. Guerlain Flaming Red (823) (DC, $58.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Urban Decay Temper Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “red-orange [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that covered evenly and smoothly. The consistency was very creamy, and it glided on without tugging on the lips while laying down full coverage in one stroke. This shade wore well for five hours on me and was very lightly hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Wild Ginger (P, $54.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Zealot Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “satin red with micro-shimmer [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a bright, medium red with warm undertones and very fine pink and ruby red shimmer. The shimmer is fine enough that it adds a subtle sheen to the lipstick, but it isn’t noticeable by feel or look overtly shimmery. The texture was smooth and applied evenly, and it really did feel like a shimmery take on their Cream finish. This shade stayed on for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Urban Decay Bad Blood Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep red [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark red with warm, brown undertones and a satiny sheen. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation that applied easily as the texture was very creamy and smooth without feeling heavy on. This shade lasted for five hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Bobbi Brown Red Velvet (P, $37.00) is darker (95% similar).

Urban Decay 714 Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright red [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a bright, medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a very lightly creamy consistency; just creamy enough that it didn’t drag or feel uncomfortable when applying. For me, while the color was very similar to the 714 released previously, the texture was much, much better. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear, but it was moderately drying. Urban Decay 714 (LE, $18.00) is darker, less pigmented (95% similar). MAC Wild Memories (LE, $19.50) is cooler (95% similar). Givenchy Rouge Stiletto (P, $37.00) is brighter (95% similar).

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.

Makes you wish you didn’t have most of these in various old formulas, so you could get ’em again for the first time. I know that doesn’t make sense. Sign of a true addict. Better that than heroin (no E.)

Haha! It does and doesn’t. The feeling of “new” and getting something new that you already like, but you know you shouldn’t since you already have it 😉

Bad Blood is still my favourite out of the reds. But I was able to try out 714 at Sephora’s as the had 8 teaser shades before they get the rest and I liked the brighter tone of it.

Temper is good if you want something orange but more muted. Bad Blood if you like red and want a warmer, darker one.

If it lasts longer than six hours, then yes. I used to skip meals, but my body (well, my head) can’t function well now that I’m older.

I am liking Zealot a lot. It is strange, I didn’t really think I would like the metallized formula at all but I have really been attracted to almost all of the shades in that formula. I don’t have a Sephora or Ulta (rural Montana again!!) close by but am headed to California on Saturday for a 3 or 4 week stay so hoping I will have a chance to check a few out in person. I have 714 both the pencil and the bullet but always preferred wearing the pencil with a light gloss under it for a little slip. I will have to check out this one also. The color looks slightly different but could just be the difference in our lip pigmentation. They all look lovely on you Christine.

I really wish that UD had left their” Matte Revolution” formula in place, especially when I see how Bad Blood looks in the new “Comfort Matte” formula! I prefer the velvety finish of the former. Oh well. Still have a whole tube of the original, plus a tube of MAC VG I.
714 looks MUCH improved, however!!! I just may nab that one down the road.
Love the looks of Zealot, but still prefer Wrath.

Ooh, I like Zealot… Bang turned out pretty orange-y on me, and Cruel — which is very pretty, I like it a lot — is a tad too dark for daytime, better for evenings/nights out. Zealot might be The One. It’s going on my ‘go swatch in store’ list.

I’ve received 24 sample blisters of UD VICE lipsticks. I tried 714 but didn’t care for the feel of the mega matte. The color was too strong or bright for my coloring. I have f-bomb in the old formula and liked that very much. I’m still trying the other sample and will probably give the nontraditional colors to my daughter to try.

F-bomb is the best red ever, for me. I love it. I have the old one, of course. I hope I’ll still love it in the new
formula.
I think I must have Zealot, it looks lovley!
Good thing these are permanent, as there are so many wonderful lipsticks, and I want so many of them:)

It is a really interesting colour, I’d say it is a neutral red on me, unless I look in my bathroom mirror where it looks warm. In all other lights it’s neutral. I think it’s why I like it so much, as I have a more neutral than cool or warm skintone. That said, I love cool toned lipsticks as well as warmtoned ones, F-Bomb is just my favourite one, the one I think makes everything look right.
I’ve just walked around with a mirror in my hand, checking my lips in all rooms in lamplight and by the windows. Good thing no one saw me, they’d think me awfully vain and weird 🙂

This site has become my sole source of lipstick guide. THANKS A LOT.!!!

I wonder how f-bomb compares with Dior 999, and how Bad Blood compares with M.A.C. Russian Red.

I don’t think I have 999, unfortunately! You can compare any two shades that I do have swatched in the Swatch Gallery under “Compare Any Two!”
