Urban Decay Tantric Vice LipstickUrban Decay Tantric Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “light nude-pink [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it applied unevenly and settled into lip lines from the get-go. The consistency was lightly creamy and balm-like, but I just couldn’t keep the color in place. This shade lasted for two and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating. MAC Myself (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Revlon Pink Lemonade (DC, $7.49) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).

Urban Decay Lovelight Vice LipstickUrban Decay Lovelight Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pale peach with pink shimmer [with a Sheer Shimmer finish].” It’s a light-medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and fine, gold shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a thin, balm-like consistency that “melted” as it warmed up against the lips, but initially, it had a firmer feel against the lips. I felt like the thinner texture emphasized my lip lines, though. The color wore werll for three hours and was lightly hydrating overall. Smashbox Easy (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Urban Decay Ex-Girlfriend Vice LipstickUrban Decay Ex-Girlfriend Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “nude-rose with pink shimmer [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a light-medium, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a fine gold shimmer-sheen finish. It had sheer color coverage, which just seemed to darken and warm-up my natural lip color–I expect this will vary a lot from person to person due to the sheerness of it. The color lasted for three hours on me, but it was lightly moisturizing. It seemed to have slightly more pigmentation than the one in the Gwen Stefani release. Urban Decay Ex-Girlfriend (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Frolic (P, $54.00) is warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Lili Doree (P, $36.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Pensive (162) (P, $38.00) is more muted (90% similar).

Urban Decay Hitch Hike Vice LipstickUrban Decay Hitch Hike Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “brick rose [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a creamy finish. It had rich color payoff with a very smooth, creamy consistency that glides onto lips and just makes lips look plumper. This shade wore well for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Laura Mercier Cozy (P, $24.00) is brighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bois de Rose (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Urban Decay Amulet Vice LipstickUrban Decay Amulet Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic brick rose [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a metallic shimmer-sheen finish. It had nearly opaque coverage–which isn’t as common with the Metallized finish–that went on evenly. The consistency was lightly creamy, not too slippery, and sat well on the lips. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Estee Lauder Dark Desire (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Blake (LE, $36.00) is warmer (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay Vice LipstickUrban 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.

Lovelight and Amulet are quite nice. I think Amulet might not be too brown I can’t wear it. I like it’s 70’s/90’s vibe with a shimmery update.

Well, Hitchlike is definitely near the top of my list to try out!
Also, I recently got Protest from the old Revolution lipsticks in the clearance sale and it’s quickly become my goto mlbb colour. I regret not getting a cheap backup when it was available – did anything from this new line strike you as particularly similar in colour? Liar in the old formula wasn’t quite peach enough for me.

I love Hitch Hike and Amulet. I’m on the fence about Lovelight. It’s sheer, but it’s pretty, and might show up nicely on my pale lips.

Oh wow! This grouping has THREE that are calling to me! Lovelight (too close to MAC VG V?), Hitch Hike, and Amulet are all so perfect for my taste. Therein lies the problem. Do they come just *too* close to ones I already have? Amulet vs. TF Derek? Lovelight vs. VG V? I do tend to get my fair share of these type of shades, it seems.
Of note, my MAC VG V is just a pan of it in a palette.

At least they’re all permanent (even the ones you have!), so hopefully you can study the differences 😉

Lovelight/Revolution has been my no-fail, use-anytime go-to for last couple of years, so sorry to hear Vice version isn’t a true duplicate in terms of color. But it swatched ok on me in store (I’m still working through my last tube of old formulation), so am going to stay optimistic. I found it swatched noticeably more pinky-peach than Ex-Girlfriend, which read just slightly browner at least to my eye

I really like Amulet and Hitch Hike, I don’t have dupes for either of them (how that is possible with my lipstick stash I do no know), so both went to the wishlist.
The sheerer ones are pretty, but I generally prefere lipglss when it comes to sheer lip products.

Awesome job with this review! I own hitch hike and LOVE it! I am somewhat new to makeup and still building up my collection so there are about 6 lipsticks I purchased from this line. I was very selective about my choices and love each one, but hitch hike is my absolute favorite. You are so right that it does seem to plump the lip.

Do you have any suggestions on a close dupe in a lip liner, Christine? Urban decay suggests manic but manic does not seem warm enough for hitch hike and when I combine them it’s just not nearly as beautiful as hitch hike alone.

You look flawless in every one of these photos! You and Rapture Blush were made for each other. I have the polar opposite coloring as you – I’m extremely fair, cool undertones, blue eyes, and platinum blonde hair – and I also love Rapture. It’s one of those “everyone needs this blush” kind of shades. Okay, we’re not reviewing blush here. The lipsticks look great, too. I just had to comment on how gorgeous you look!

I haven’t been able to find Ex-Girlfriend anywhere! I have the one from the Gwen Stefani collection and ADORE it, but haven’t seen the Vice version in Sephora or Ulta. Is this a website only shade?
