Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices Set Review & Swatches


Sweet Little Vices

Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices 4-Piece Mini Vice Lipstick Set is a new, limited edition foursome that includes all new shades, and the twist on these is that each is scented and flavored differently from the regular Vice range.

California Honey

California Honey is a brighter, medium-dark gold with strong, warm orange undertones and flecks of gold sparkle and finer shimmer throughout. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied somewhat evenly, but there wasn’t even dispersion of the sparkle/glitter, which resulted in the product clumping up in some places. There was a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines as well. The texture felt slightly textured, though not rough or painful to use, from the amount of sparkle in the product. It wore well for three hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Keep Tame

Keep Tame is a soft, medium plum with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was as expected based on it being a Sheer finish. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and emollient enough to apply evenly without tugging on my lips. It emphasized lip texture slightly, though, which was its biggest “con.” It wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating over time.


Bing is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly, but there was subtle streaking along the edges of my lips and a touch of product in my deeper lip lines.

The finish of the lipstick had a tendency to catch on imperfections, so if you have naturally drier or flakier lips, you may have more application issues than I did. The texture felt lightweight, lightly emollient and was comfortable to wear over the four hours it lasted for. The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating to me.

Red Hot

Red Hot is a bright, pinky-red with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could have applied more evenly for me–it looked streaky along the edges and caught on any texture.

There was some separation along my lip lines, though the brighter color made that harder to see in person. The consistency was denser and firmer in the tube, so it was best applied with shorter strokes to avoid drag. The color stayed on well for six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.
