Psycho

Urban Decay Psycho Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-red with cool, blue undertones and faint, iridescent pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and a second layer could be applied to make it opaque. The consistency was thin, almost watery, but it applied evenly on the lips. After the liquid lipstick dried down, it appeared smooth and did not emphasize the lines on my lips. This shade lasted for seven hours but was somewhat drying after four hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.17 oz. - $105.88 Per Ounce

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.

Rapid

Urban Decay Rapid Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had good color coverage in one layer, though one would need to apply a second one for full coverage. The liquid lipstick had a smooth, thin texture that wasn’t too watery or too heavy, so it was easy to maneuver across the lips and yielded even, smooth application of the color. The formula was fairly drying within five hours of wear, though it lasted for nearly eight on me.

The base colors looks pretty (dupable, easy) but I don’t see a benefit from the glitter specks? I was thinking of picking up psycho before because I love a good matte punchy pop of color, but now seeing the specks, it looks like appealing. Does anyone like these glitter bits??? I’d wanna hear if yes and why because personally I dont.

Love how Rapid looks just like red velvet! That is one knock-your-socks-off shade of red, so I’m not surprised to see Ruby Woo as its closest dupe. Knowing me, I’d likely opt for a tube lipstick in the end.

Psycho makes me LOL, because whenever they show a “Crazy Cat Lady” meme….?

Wow, finally some more shades in this formula that aren’t total fails! Of course, they’re easily dupe-able reds, but still, it’s a welcomed surprise. I’m really shocked.
