Naked

Urban Decay Naked Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay Naked Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly with some color that pulled into lip lines and dried there, so there was a “cracked” look to the finish when I smiled. The consistency was thin but comfortable to wear, but it did not seem to dry down fully–there was a touch of tackiness that lingered (but it did not pull up color after the initial “dry down” phase). This shade lasted for four and a half hours before fading noticeably.

The Vice Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” with “complete coverage in one coat” and “nondrying wear” that is “comfortable” and “waterproof.” The majority of the Metallized shades are not even close to one-coat coverage–maybe three or four or coats!–and did not layer evenly, plus they had a tendency to lose sparkle/glitter through wear. Whenever a shade wasn’t opaque in one coat, it often looked streaky or uneven. There were some shades that had fantastic, one-coat coverage, while others featured more medium, buildable coverage but several applied uneven, patchy, and didn’t level or improve after drying down even with a second layer.

The consistency of the formula was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply, but the dry down was lengthy and some shades never fully felt dry (instead, lightly tacky). There was a learning curve to applying and wearing these, too, as they were unforgiving if you accidentally press your lips together before the formula has dried down–the formula is quite tacky as it dries down and pressed lips together results in color lifting away. The wear varied from shade to shade (and between finishes) from four to eight hours, and so far, most were true to the nondrying claim, at least. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with them. They were difficult to remove compared to most products; I had the best luck saturating a cotton pad with eye or lip makeup remover (Neutrogena, Lancome, Shiseido, etc.), yet curiously were not that long-wearing on me (relative to liquid lipsticks)–they seemed to develop a little tackiness with any meal or drink (even just water) and degraded from there. Overall, the formula was extremely disappointing after the successful Vice lipstick launch last year.

Flame

Urban Decay Flame Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay Flame Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark coral-orange with larger and smaller gold and copper glitter. It had sheer coverage, which was dismal at building up (even after I waited for the first layer to dry down) and looked all-around awful on the lips–chunky, uneven, patchy, and emphasizing of my lip lines. It seemed to flake away and fade within a few hours. The formula was, at least, non-drying.

1993

Urban Decay 1993 Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay 1993 Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat unevenly. It dried down fairly quickly but started to feel a touch tacky after I had a couple of sips of water (just regular water, nothing special!). The consistency was thin, watery, and harder to maneuver along the edges with precision. This shade started to fade noticeably after four hours of wear on me, though it was non-drying.

Pity. I was hoping Flame would be a good one, and it’s one of the worst. UD is very hit and miss lately. As always, thanks for the dupe list.

Oh man am I glad I’ve got dupes for Naked and 1993, as these are just not that good.
And Flame, which has such a gorgeous look to it, is such an epic fail. What a shame about that one.?

I saw Flame and thought, hey, I’d better ask how the shade compares to Guerlain Gems but it’s obviously a hard pass with that kind of a formula.

Such a pity. I would have liked to have Flame, but after reading the review and seeing the close ups, its an easy pass. It did look rather good on the full face photo, though.
