Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in Sheer Rapture

Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in Sheer Rapture

I like this shade, but I do like the non-sheer version a bit better. The sheer version has color, and it’s a softer, less intense version of the non-sheer shade. I can see using this version as a summer lip, when I don’t want a lot of color but do want a slight tint.

The dry application is pretty pale. It’s almost sheer! The upside is that this can double as a highlighter. When applied wet, the shadow is opaque, and has fairly solid color payoff, as well as a near-metallic finish.

Applied dry, the shimmer is virtually invisible. (It really doesn’t like sticking around without some encouragement beyond primer.)

They’re all very attractive colors, full pigmentation and good adhesion.

Part of the Matte X finish group. The color has been discontinued, but Party Foul is close. Sauce is more pink, a little less deep. Sitting Pretty, from the new Lux Lipstick line, looks like it’s in the same ballpark, but more saturated.

Zoya’s Tulip

Zoya’s Tulip

I was hopeful about this one, because I liked the color. It’s a paler orange with pink tones, so it looks halfway good on me. I wasn’t super-wild about the microglass finish - I don’t like how Zoya often executes these - but decided to pick up a bottle for Earth Day 2017. Problem is…it’s rather thin.
