Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Ladyflower Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “rose-pink [with a Sheer Shimmer finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It’s a smidgen more pigmented than the Sheer version of this from the Revolution range, but it is not as pigmented as the opaque as the regular Revolution shade. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a soft shine. The consistency felt slightly stiff initially but quickly warmed up against the lips and glided on more easily; I felt like this shade self-leveled after a minute or so after being applied. It wore for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Sheer Ladyflower (DC, $22.00) is less pigmented (95% similar).

Urban Decay Jilted Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia shimmer with blue shift [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark fuchsia-berry with subtle, cool undertones and fuchsia shimmer. It had nearly opaque pigmentation–there was just a hint of my lip freckle peeking through–with a creamy, medium-weight texture that had moderate slip but didn’t feather or slide around too easily. The formula wore well for five hours, left a stain behind, and was hydrating. Urban Decay Jilted (DC, $22.00) is brighter, less glossy (95% similar).

Urban Decay Afterdark Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium-dark berry pink [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a deep, plum-berry with cool undertones and a fine, subtle pearl. It had more of a semi-matte to satin finish–not quite as satiny as others in the Comfort Matte finish but not truly matte. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging. It wore well for six hours, left behind a stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Urban Decay Venom Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright plum [with a Cream finish].” It’s a deep, muted berry with cool undertones and fine purple and pink shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a creamy, lightly glossy consistency that glided on well and wore for five hours. It left behind a stain, and it didn’t feather on me over time. It swatched very similarly (I couldn’t detect a difference) on the skin, but it appears more muted/deeper in pigment applied, which translated into a darker, less pink end result for me.

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.
