Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Sabotage Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “rose-plum with blue-shift [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia-berry with fine fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–it seemed more like a Metallized finish, as it had more slip and was thinner than the Cream finish, generally-speaking–that covered evenly. This shade wore well for five hours, was lightly hydrating, and left a stain behind. Urban Decay Venom (DC, $22.00) is darker (95% similar).

Urban Decay Mosh Pit Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “berry plum [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage, which went on evenly and smoothly–you can see a hint of my lip freckle peeking through. The texture was lightweight, creamy with very light tackiness, and comfortable to wear. On me, it wore well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Urban Decay Sheer Shame Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “berry [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a slightly bright, medium-dark berry-pink with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff; enough color that it will tint the lips but definitely lighter and more stained-like in appearance than a full coverage lipstick. The color lasted for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Too Faced So Berry Sexy (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Urban Decay Disturbed Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep brick red [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a deep, burgundy-brown with warm, red undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage, though it had more slip than most of the Comfort Matte shades, which resulted in slightly more translucent color and stronger shine. It applied evenly, but I noticed some color gathered into lip lines after three hours of wear. The lipstick wore for six hours in total and was lightly hydrating. Maybelline Chocoholic (DC, $7.49) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Film Noir (P, $19.50) is darker (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Anita (DC, $18.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar).

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep berry red [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a deep, blackened burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that almost covered the entire lip. The texture was creamy and applied without tugging, and it was surprisingly easy to apply directly from the tube (but a lip brush would certainly help with crisper lines!). This shade wore well for over six hours and was lightly hydrating overall. Urban Decay Blackmail (DC, $22.00) is darker, less glossy (95% similar). Sephora Wanderlust (33) (P, $8.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC In My Fashion (LE, $19.50) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Whiskey (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (90% 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.

Also favor these, no surprise. But some dupes have also front-burnered themselves, like Whiskey. I thought, prob incorrectly, that the bite summer shade extensions were LE. The Whiskey page has it as permanent. Please correct me. I could live in this group forever!

I’m instantly drawn to Disturbed, but I also just bought Whiskey last week. OK with this, though, since there are easily 10 other dark red/brown/plummy UD shades I’m also interested in!

Maybe Mosh Pit and Sheer Shame, since I might have dupes for the others. To make room for UD Vice, I’m going to have to go through my huge lippie collection to check for dupes and purge. Any tips on how to swatch so many lipsticks without ruining the lips? What do you use to remove the swatches?

Well, I have Sheer Shame from the Revolution line but it’s nice to know that I can still get this one if I finish it or lose it.
I’m really liking Mosh Pit and I think it’ll be perfect for fall.

Sheer Shame has my name written all over it! I want more strong, bright colors in my lipstick wardrobe. But with thin, aging lips, super-opaque pigmentation in those kinds of shades is not my friend. I’m actually pretty excited! 🙂

All are winners but Sabotage, Mosh Pit and Sheer Shame are perfect for me. The other two might be a little too warm without the right foundation, blush, and outfit.

I want all of them, even the sheer one, and I generally don’t go for sheer lipsticks. I think I’ll start with Blackmail, and then get Disturbed followed by Mosh Pit, or, or or something. One thing is for sure, UD will get most of my lipstick budget this year.

Ugh! The 2 I love the most, I have clear dupes of: Disturbed = MAC Deep Love, Mosh Pit = MAC VG III. Although, this is a good thing that there is something for Deep Love, if and when it runs out! ?

You look stunning in Mosh Pit, Christine!!! Well all of them really!!! You wear these vampy colors so well!! I really want mosh pit now! I’m actually really surprised there’s literally no exact dupes!!! Also – Blackmail got an A? WOW!! This is an awesome group of shades!
