Urban Decay OG Backtalk Vice Lip Bond Review & Swatches

Urban Decay OG Backtalk Vice Lip Bond Glossy Liquid Lipstick

OG Backtalk

Urban Decay OG Backtalk Vice Lip Bond Glossy Liquid Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a pale pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. I noticed this shade didn’t apply quite as easily as other shades in the range, though it wasn’t difficult.

  • Opaque coverage in one layer
  • Lightweight, thinner initially, then slightly clingy but not uncomfortable
  • Moderately tacky after set but did not lift up color
  • Transfer-resistant, even after eating/drinking
  • Extremely long-wearing (12-14 hours of very good wear, product remained as fading until removal at 16 hours)

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.2 oz. - $125.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense color and instant'shine" in a single layer, while still being "comfortable to wear" and moisturizing. The brand also claims that it will wear for 16 hours, be transfer-proof and resistant to both water and food. The brand says to shake the tube prior to application.

I'm happy to report that the formula actually lived up to its claims! It was incredibly long-wearing where 16-hour wear was absolutely within possibilities, though I'd say that two greasier meals did start to break it down more noticeably (so around 12-14 hours, depending on eating schedules). It was food and water resistant; I didn't see any marks left on my glasses while drinking my morning lattes or water throughout the day. After a meal, it had almost no transfer and was very much intact on my lips except for the very inner area after an oil-heavy (pesto!) lunch.

They had rich color coverage that applied evenly, was fairly forgiving and not prone to settling noticeably into my lip lines. The liquid lipstick felt lighter and was thinner initially, but it set to a slightly clingy, more satin-like sheen after about 30 seconds. I noticed that it felt less clingy after about two hours and was very comfortable to wear. It didn't seem to dry out my lips at all after wearing the product for multiple days in a row.

It seemed unscented and had no discernible taste.

Maybe there’s an older version of Backtalk I’m not familiar with (does anyone remember if the shade was available in the ’90s [shotgun shell packaging era] or ’08 [with the dagger on the base so you could only stand it upside down!]?)…but since the Revolution formula, Backtalk is definitely mauve! This pink is not the “OG” most people would expect.

This is pretty and doesn’t look dry on the lips. It isn’t a shade that will work for me but I do like it. By not working for me, I feel like it is a bit light. I like that it leans cool as those are my preferred tones but if they are too light it looks weird when they wear off because I have more pigmented lips.
