Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

Urban Decay Wired Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “coral [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bright, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. The texture was creamy enough to glide on without tugging, but not so soft that the lipstick was prone to breakage or such that the color was easily over-applied. It even applied very evenly, and I didn’t find noticeable “lines” emerged if I pressed my lips together, which can sometimes occur with more emollient formulas. It had opaque color coverage and lasted for four and a half hours on me. The formula was moderately hydrating. NARS Juliette (P, $34.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar).

Urban Decay Tilt Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright orange [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark coral with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. The texture was creamy, smooth, and thin without being clingy; it glided across the lips easily and delivered opaque coverage in a single pass. This shade sat comfortably on the lips from start to finish and didn’t pull into lip lines at all. When I wore it, the color lasted for five hours, was lightly hydrating, and left a stain behind. Tom Ford Beauty Adriano (LE, $36.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Tantalize (Right) (LE, ) is darker (95% similar).

Urban Decay Tryst Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “red-fuchsia [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It was intensely pigmented and yielded even, opaque color coverage. The formula had a lightweight feel, light-to-moderate slip, and was soft enough to glide on easily but didn’t feel wet or slick on the lips. The color wore well for six hours and left a more fuchsia-ish stain behind after that. I found it nicely hydrating, though still a little less hydrating compared to the original Revolution formula. Revlon Love That Pink (P, $8.49) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Watermelon (P, $29.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Urban Decay EZ Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright red-orange [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark coral-red with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It was richly pigmented with opaque color that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture was soft, moderately creamy, but not too thick or too dense, so it didn’t slide around too much when applied (but it isn’t clingy, and it will transfer, as you might expect). The color wore well for six hours and left a stain behind, while the formula was moderately moisturizing. Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Color) (PiP, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Ardency Inn Original Mix (P, $23.00) is brighter, warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty #003 (LE, $36.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar).

Urban Decay Wildfire Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic orange with gold pearl [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a medium-dark, reddish-copper with warm, orange-gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a thinner, moderately slippery texture that glided on easily and was comfortable to wear. Normally, thinner textures are less hydrating, but this one had a more balm-like feel, despite being so lightweight. It wasn’t as hydrating as the Cream finish shades have been for me, but it still offered some additional hydration. The color lasted for four hours on me. MAC CB96 (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Sari d'Eau (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, lighter (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.

Wildfire is really cool. I actually like all of these colors. I recently dyed my hair gray, and I’ve found I can wear many more shades and tones now.

A Avatar

None of these colours are really my thing but I love looking at the swatches – it’s like lipstick porn.
I really like the finish on the comfort matte and cream – they look so smooth and glossy.

Lulle Avatar

All these shades look pretty amazing! I like Wildfire a lot but I think Milani Orange-Gina that I already own should be quite close. I wonder how Wired would look on me. It’s the type of shade that I feel I need to try on, because it could be gorgeous or horrendous depending on how the undertones play with my complexion.

Glad Tryst did so well, that was my favorite of this group. Wildfire is so gorgeous, may have to pick up atom Ford’s Hiro because I’ve recently begun collecting Lips and Boys?

Bonnie Avatar

I’m always drawn to bright orangey corals like wired! I have a ton of dupes! But Wildfire – now that’s a must have. Honestly might be the only must have for me in this whole line! I’m still grumpy they didn’t just expand the revolution line. 😉

Rachel Avatar

I just received wired and I love it! I had wanted to love Tilt in the old revolution collection but somehow the tone did not work either with the color of my lips (which are very cool-toned) or my skin, which is neutral leaning just slightly cool. Wired reminds me of tilt but has a tone that works much better for me..yay!
