Trivial

Urban Decay Trivial Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay Trivial Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, but the color pooled in my lip lines and made them appear deeper. The consistency was smooth, thin but not watery, and felt good going on. This shade started to fade after three hours on me–incredibly fast!–and felt slightly tacky after a mere sip of water.

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.

Backtalk

Urban Decay Backtalk Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay Backtalk Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pinky mauve with more neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though it would take two coats for opaque coverage. The consistency was thin, a little watery, and it did not apply as evenly as it could–I had some streaks and the formula did not self-level at all as it dried down. This shade started to lift away from the center of the mouth and look partially faded after four hours of wear. The formula was comfortable to wear and non-drying on me.

Brat

Urban Decay Brat Vice Liquid LipstickUrban Decay Brat Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium peony pink with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a smooth, almost creamy texture (but still a thinner formula) that applied evenly. The dry down took three to four minutes, and it was a bit tacky for another half hour on me, but this shade had a chalky look to it post-dry down and “cracked” as I smiled. The color started to fade on me after four hours of wear, though the formula was non-drying.

Well, Brat is another one where I sure am glad for that Maybelline dupe, Pink Sugar!
These are quite disappointing compared to those fab reds from a few days ago. I really wish Trivial had been at least a B, because then I would’ve bought it. But there is Sandy B from MAC. And I’ve always wanted that one.

What can I say except Thank you for helping me save money. I’m staying far away from this whole range. I would have thought UD could do a lot better to be honest.

Whoa, crazy. I bet there must be batch issues. My Backtalk is absolutely amazing. It’s thin, but it’s opaque in one coat. I’ve been wearing it most days this week, and it lasts a good 6 hours on me through lots of water, coffee, and snacks. Maybe I’m just lucky, haha.
