First Sin

Urban Decay First Sin Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium, peachy-pink with stronger, warmer orange undertones and cooler pink and peach pearl. It is listed as a “Cream” finish, which was a surprise, as it was more translucent and medium in coverage (more like a “Sheer Cream” to me). The texture had moderate slip, and it was extremely prone to gathering in my lip lines, which only worsened over time. The formula was comfortable to wear and hydrating while worn, but it only lasted for four hours. The color went on fairly evenly, but it just didn’t look smooth or even due to how much product accumulated in my lip lines within the few minutes it took to take photos!

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.

Fuel

Urban Decay Fuel Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep peach with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It was previously released, and the color and quality were consistent with its original release. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, creamy texture that had moderate slip but managed to adhere well to my lips, though it seemed to run a bit thinner and was more prone to emphasizing my natural lip texture. It wore well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Fuel 2.0

Urban Decay Fuel 2.0 Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a smooth, creamy texture that had moderate slip but applied evenly across my lips and did not tug during application. There was enough slip, though, that I felt it was a bit more prone to emphasizing my lip lines than it was smoothing them out. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Fuel still appeals! But, I doubt that I need it?

Looking at Fuel 2.0 in the close up shot, I’ve decided that as much as I do love the shade, I don’t like the way it seems to apply. It looks heavy, thick and not very smoothing. I’ll just stay happy using my close enough MAC Apricot Gold instead.

First Sin made me think of their LE Alice Lipstick, but not as good of quality, though.

Ah bummer, I love the look of First Sin. That sheen is just gorgeous. But I can’t handle anything that’ll settle in my liplines. I just have very liney lips 😂

So, is Fuel permanent now? It’s one of my absolute favorite lipsticks! 2.0 is nice, but isn’t quite as unique in my opinion.
