Faith

Urban Decay Faith Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark bronze with warm, coppery undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage, though it wasn’t opaque in a single layer. The lipstick was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and had enough slip to glide on without tugging but not enough to feel slippery while worn. It lasted for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.11 oz. - $163.64 Per Ounce

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. I didn't notice any scent or taste. 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.

Heat

Urban Decay Heat Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with strong, warm undertones and flecks of gold and red shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, moderately emollient texture that didn’t tug when I applied it, but there was a bit of product that settled into my deeper lip lines. The richness of the color made that harder to see from a normal viewing distance, though. I could feel the texture of the sparkle in the tube and when I pressed my lips together. The color wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time. i

Now I cannot get that George Michael song “Faith” out of my head! LOL! Great song, great lipstick shade for me!

Hi Christine! Just a friendly hint- it looks like the shade names/descriptions have been mixed up in your review. Anyway, I might have to pick up that shimmery red as it looks pretty unique. Thanks! 🙂
