UPDATED: SO, SO sorry for my massive screw up!!! The swatches are showing the right products now! I am so sorry! Thank you to the people who were kind of enough to let me know!

Urban Decay Jawbreaker Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “purple [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a dark, red-toned purple with a satin finish and very, very fine micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage that applied unevenly; the consistency was thin and somewhat stiff, which likely made application harder. I would recommend using a lip liner (Urban Decay recommends pairing with Speedball lip pencil) first and then applying with a lip brush to maximize coverage and help even out the color. It lasted for five and a half hours, was lightly drying, and left a strong fuchsia-hued stain behind. This shade is not available at Sephora (will be at all other retailers).

Urban Decay Seismic Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “plum-purple with red shimmer [with a Sheer Shimmer finish].” It’s a blackened berry with subtle, cooler undertones and a fine shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied evenly, and for a darker shade, just barely darkened lip lines as the consistency has a little density to it. The color lasted for four hours and was nicely hydrating. NARS Afghan Red (P, $28.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Wild Nectar (LE, $17.50) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

Urban Decay Pandemonium Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright purple [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a dark, red-toned purple with a satin finish and very, very fine micro-shimmer. You might notice my description is very similar to that of Jawbreaker, and to me, they are very similar–this shade is very slightly cooler-toned. Unfortunately, it is also drier, stiffer, and hard to apply evenly. It had slightly better coverage, though still semi-opaque. It lasted for six hours and was lightly drying. Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Smashbox Violet Riot (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Violet Vixen (P, $7.49) is brighter, cooler, glossier (95% similar).

Urban Decay Obsessed Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “baby pink [with a Sheer Shimmer finish].” It’s a medium pink with cool, bluer undertones and a fine pearly shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly but welled up in lip lines easily. I would consider using a lip primer or pencil underneath if that’s an issue that bothers you. The texture is a smidgen stiff until it warms up and then starts to feel like it is melting against the lips and is easy to smooth over the lips. This shade wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Obsessed (DC, $22.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Urban Decay Brat (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Maybelline Lust for Blush (P, $7.99) is less glossy (90% similar).

Urban Decay Disobedient (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Powerful (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Cle de Peau Water Lily (LE, $65.00) is more muted, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Lotus (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Double Bubble (P, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Speed Dial (P, $17.50) is darker (85% similar). YSL Fetish Pink (8) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Disobedient Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium pink [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish, It had good color payoff with a very creamy, smooth consistency that was comfortable to wear and glided right on. The only issue I had with this shade was that it didn’t seem to smooth out my lips–it accentuated a couple of my larger lip lines (on the bottom lip), whereas some of the better Creams seem to plump them up and make my lips appear smoother. This shade lasted for four hours and was moderately hydrating. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Virgin Rose (P, $54.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Sweet-Thing (LE, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Lotus (P, $24.00) is lighter (80% similar). Tarte Fomo (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (80% similar). Urban Decay Brat (P, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (80% 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.
