Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Vanished Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pale neutral nude [with a Cream finish].” It’s a light-medium peach-beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It seemed more like a Sheer than a Cream to me, as it had more slip, less density, and had semi-sheer coverage. It lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Urban Decay Insanity Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “soft warm nude [with a Cream finish].” It’s a muted, medium peachy-beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen. The texture was moderately emollient, comfortable to wear, and glided on without tugging on the lips. IIt had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly, but it was a little thinner in consistency compared to other shades, so it didn’t smooth out the appearance of lips as much. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Too Faced Chocolate Milkshake (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Urban Decay Stark Naked Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “light nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was creamy, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. On me, the color lasted for four hours and wasn’t drying, but I noticed some of the lip color pulled into lip lines just slightly. Urban Decay Stark Naked (DC, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Urban Decay Liar Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink-nude [with a Cream finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had very nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was light-medium in weight, comfortable to wear, and dense enough to smooth out the appearance of the lips. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was nicely hydrating. The Vice version is slightly darker than the Revolution version. Benefit La La Land (DC, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Urban Decay Interrogate Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium peachy-rose [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium peachy-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It was medium in weight with a very creamy, slippery texture that stayed in the lines but moved around on the lips for me–I felt like I was wearing lipstick more so with this shade than others in the range. It had good pigmentation and was nicely hydrating, though! This shade wore well for four and a half hours. ColourPop Exaggerated (LE, $7.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (95% 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.

Liar is one of those colors I really want to love, but on me it just turns straight up peach-orange, no pink or plum tones, which does not look good on me at all! I wore it a few times last summer but I suspect it’s getting purged from my stash next time I’m looking to trim things down.

Ugh, I have to be very careful with these peachy browns, as they tend to make me look really yellow! I think the only one I can pull off is maybe Liar, and it’s a tad light, but will swatch in store.

Interrogate is my favorite in this group!!I also like Liar and Insanity.I have the Revolution Stark Naked so I’m not going to get that one and I just don’t have any desire to buy a lipstick called Vanished.Isn’t the point of a good lipstick that it won’t vanish,lol!

Nancy T Avatar

What a sense of relief I am feeling that UD didn’t noticeabley alter one of my 2 HG nude lipsticks; Liar! I can breath!

Interrogate isn’t a bad shade, either. But light, orangey nudes can look funky on me, so I probably won’t get it. Especially after seeing Sushi Kiss as a dupe….a shade that just looked strange as could be on me.

I own stark naked and love it! I really love insanity and interrogate but I feel like these three colors are too similar to buy both. I already bought unicorn and wired (can’t wait for them to arrive!!). Please talk me down! hahaha

Britt Avatar

Is it just me or am I the only one who has some kinda of obsession over the small lines in the “UD” graphic? I just received Conspiracy in the mail today and I can’t wait to wear it! All of these shades look great on you Christine..

Sue Avatar

Britt, I noticed that too. I found myself staring at that engraved logo and it made me feel oddly happy (haha).

Christine, love your detailed descriptions and close-up photos of products.

I just bought Insanity and love it. I have the Too Faced Melted in Chocolate Milkshake and adore the color, but find the formula uncomfortably drying. The UD is almost the same color and much more comfortable. Really loving this new Vice line.
