Urban Decay Vice Metal Meets Matte Vice Lipstick Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

Vice Metal Meets Matte

Urban Decay Vice Metal Meets Matte Vice Lipstick Palette ($35.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains 12 lipsticks–six shimmery shades, six mattes–with a mix of new, exclusive shades and ones from the permanent range. It includes a retractable lip brush. I think it’s a nice way to try a lot of shades from the Vice formula, but I recommend thinking critically about how you use your lip products–some use a lip brush regularly and won’t mind that step while others like to keep their lip color on them throughout the day and carrying around a whole palette may or may not be feasible. The formula, overall, feels a little less dense and creamy compared to the full-sized versions (when available) but have similar coverage, wear, and application.

Value

A full-sized Vice Lipstick retails for $17.00 and contains 0.11 oz. or costs $154.55/oz. The palette contains $37.09 worth of product.

Banger

Banger is a purpled berry with lighter purple and silver sparkle. It had medium, somewhat buildable coverage with a thin, almost balm-like texture was it had some slip but felt thin once applied to the lips. I could feel the texture and grit of the sparkle due to the thinner overlal texture, which may or may not be a deal-breaker for someone. It applied fairly evenly but some color pulled into my lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.11 oz. – $154.55 Per Ounce

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.

Amulet

Amulet is a medium plum with warm undertones and fine pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, slightly emollient texture that spread easily across the lips but wasn’t quite as hydrating or as glossy as the full-sized version. The lipstick lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating on me.

Big Bang

Big Bang is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and light and medium pink sparkle. It had medium coverage, which applied evenly across the lips so it looked almost like a stain with a glossy finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin but not clingy. It wore well for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Mad

Mad is a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm pink undertones and fine sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly, though there was room for improvement in the application. The texture was thin but had enough slip to spread well across the lips and did not feel clingy. It lasted for five hours and was non-drying.

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.

CSB

CSB is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which wasn’t too buildable from there. The texture was smooth, creamy without being heavy nor was it too thin. It applied evenly with slight color pulling into my lip lines over time. The color stayed on well for five hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.11 oz. – $154.55 Per Ounce

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.

714

714 is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a stiffer, denser texture that worked well as a poured formula, as a lip brush applied it evenly and smoothly with little effort to achieve crisp lines. The formula felt clingy on the lips, so it wasn’t my favorite texture to wear. It wore well for six hours and was slightly drying.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.11 oz. – $154.55 Per Ounce

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.
