They are scheduled to be released in July. There are three colors yet to be swatched on her Instagram. Bow N’ Arrow is a re-release. It was discontinued when the product was reformulated. It was brought back for obvious reasons, it’s a gorgeous color!
The 100 Swatch Post - All Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks (2016)
It was an insane night. First I spent 5 minutes wondering how on earth I was going to group 100 lipsticks up for swatching. Then I realized it would save time if I just lined them up according to UD’s own grid system, and this would also ensure I didn’t miss out colors or get names and orders wrong during editing.

There are 100 colors in 6 textures which I labeled as follows:
c - cream
s - sheer
ss - sheer shimmer
met - metallized
cm - comfort matte
mm - mega matte
My favorite textures? Comfort Mattes and Mega Mattes. The Creams are mostly good as well. Metallized ones are fun but it depends on your preference. I just don’t look that great in intensely frosted lipsticks so I’m not the best person to weigh in on them.
As for the sheers and sheer shimmers, I find them a good deal less consistent in quality, with several shades going on patchy and streaky unless you spend a lot of time blending and smoothing them out. Another problem is they are prone to bending and smooshing against the sides of the tubes because they are so soft, which makes it a pain to use them.
As for my top recommendations for shades, it’s hard to narrow it down to a neat little list, but here are some:
Perversion - a great matte black in a smooth, rich texture.
Amulet - my pick over 1993 for a much more flattering rosy-brown 90s lip.
Nighthawk - interesting deep chocolate fudge
Mrs. Mia Wallace - deep ruby; amazing red. Although I love most of UD’s intense reds including Bad Blood and 714.
Gash - THE classic metallic cherry red is finally back! This was the first UD lipstick I ever bought back in the 90s.
Alpha - red-tinged fuchsia pink that brightens up the face; sisters-in-pink Menace, Psycho, Checkmate and Crush are equally cool too.
Moshpit - deep gorgeous classy burgundy.
Honestly I could go on naming great shades. You just have to try them on and explore the collection slowly!
UD Vice lipsticks are available now in Singapore at Sephora ION (now at the B2 level) for a very reasonable SGD$29 each. From early Aug, they will be on Sephora.sg as well as all other counters.
