Product Description

Want a lip look that’s anything but basic? Go from all-business to party-all-night in one swipe: Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip Topcoat transforms any lip color from beautiful to beyond.

Apply this shade-shifting topcoat over cream, metallized and matte shades of Vice Lipstick or any Vice Liquid Lipstick to create a completely customized look…the world will be begging to know what you’re wearing.

Instantly morph your favorite colors and make it look like you spent hours crafting an Instagram-worthy lip look. Or wear these shades alone. Available in shimmer, glitter and metallic finishes, our innovative, comfortable, gel-cream formula dries down quickly and provides long-lasting wear that never feels sticky. Vice Special Effects not only lasts, but also creates a water-resistant barrier that seals in the color underneath and prevents it from moving around on your lips.

Vice Special Effects comes in a clear tube (so you can see the shade inside) with gold accents. To set it apart from Vice Liquid Lipstick, we gave it an iridescent white cap. The flexible brush applicator helps the formula glide on smoothly, without messing up any lipstick underneath.

Marine Filling Spheres™ (rich in marine collagen) have moisturizing and skin-smoothing properties. And don’t be surprised if your lips feel tingly just after applying this product; it’s locking in the special effect!

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

  • "Amazing product. Very long lasting and doesn't transfer! Made my lipstick last from lunch through dinner!" in 77 reviews
  • "This stuff is literally like magic, especially when place over their Vice collection lipstick but in all honesty, you can use it over any brand of lipstick including liquid matte. It really does increase the longevity of your lipstick and is not as drying as some others I came across but I still would recommend for you to use a lip scrub prior to the application of your lipstick and this product.

Review for: Ritual, Bruja, Regulate, Reverb, Monarchy more...
I love this stuff!!! It can really liven up whatever lipstick color you're wearing and the change it makes depends on the base color you're using. It lasts a long time too. I tend to use it over top of extremely long wearing lipcolors like  COVERGIRL Outlast All-Day Lipcolor or  Maybelline SuperStay 24® Liquid Lipstick (both of which really do last 24 hours) and I don't even have to put a coat of the clear sealer on most of the time. I have also used it with other non-long wearing liquid lip color like  Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick and it definitely lengthens the staying power of those as well.

Just make sure that when you apply it, you only put a small amount on and then rub your lips together to spread it out - it is NOT a base lipcolor that needs to be put on slightly heavy in order to be seen. When I apply it, I run the brush over the inside of my lower lip, refresh it and run it on the inside of my upper lip, then press them together & make sure that I spread the top coat over all of my lips. This ensures that I'm not clumping too much in one area and that there's  a light layer all over. When you put too much on, it tends to get sticky and not dry for a while, then once it does, it will flake off easier. It's not a stand-alone color but HAS to be applied over top of a base color for it to work.
In the picture, I'm wearing Maybelline 24-hour Super Stay in either Ravishing Raspberry or Constantly Cabernet (I can't remember what it's called, but it was shockingly pink and brighter than I thought it would be) with the UD Vice Bruja topcoat.

Review for: Ritual, Reverb more...
I also tried Fever and White Lie - but those were extremely sheer and I did not find them flattering on any of the matte Lippies I tried them with. For this product, I think it is entirely about which topcoat you choose. For this review I’ll be focusing on the two I liked which was Reverb and Ritual.

I received samples of this product, and I really enjoyed the way these looked over a matte lip. I would only use these over a liquid lipstick, nothing else. They stay matte themselves, although not entirely transfer proof. About an hour after applying them there would be glitter on things my lips touched, and in the heat some of the glitter shifted around my mouth. However it wasn’t awful, and the colors are gorgeous. These two colors are very pigmented, but can be blended down or built up depending on the look you’re going for. I feel they work best with a darker lip color than a lighter one. They both seem to have blue glitters in them than other colors, so when on a pinker shade it changes to a more purple. I really enjoy this top coat and will be purchasing a full size.

Review for: Fever, 3rd Degre more...
This is very a long lasting top coat to lipstick. I tried 3rd Degree first which is a gold sparkle in a clear gloss. I wanted a gold shimmer to put over red lipstick. The color is great and mid-shift, the glitter is still on. It goes on like a gloss but dries like a matte. It’s not heavy or sticky at all. Apply after you’ve let your lipstick set (if you’re using liquid lip, let it dry completely). Only reason it gets 4 stars is because it can be drying. Make sure your lips have been exfoliated before using or you’ll be able to see some flakes!

These a fun but funky. I do like to play with them once in a while. Not something you’ll see me with regularly because they feel weird. You can’t put your lips together at all. They kind of feel lumpy on your lips. I have found that some of the colors are better than the others as far as feeling clumped up on your lips but they all do it to an extent. I’ve played with them for photos and what not but not something I could comfortable wear all day

I love how noticeable the effects of these are! A good colour shifting lipstick is somewhat hard to come by with all of these claims of holographic and iridescent lip glosses coming into the market that are barely anything more than a gloss. While I admire the colours, the lipstick isn't quite as long lasting as theirs or any other mid range brands liquids if used actually as a lip topper. In fact, it really seems to make the layer of lipstick under it come off with it.

I love that these go over any color lip to give it a little extra Oomph. The texture is good too. Matte feel but not overly drying. I use these a lot during events or costuming. They can be applied alone or over another color and they have many shades that are all totally different depending on what look you are going for. You can do a light layer for a little sparkle or go in with two layers for an opaque glitter bomb. I love it!!!

Review for: White Lie more...
My first time trying a lip topper, and overall I like it a lot. I have the shade White Lie, which is a white, iridescent glitter with a blue/purple shift. It’s amazing for the unicorn makeup trend, and looks good over almost every lip color I’ve tried. The only issues I have with this, is it doesn’t really seem water proof to me, and the applicator picks up whatever color you are wearing. So it works better for me to apply with me finger.

I love this top coat from urban decays, this is long lasting , water resistant,i can apply this on top of any lip color. This gives an incredible unique look to my lips. I don’t like to wear it alone because it feels a little dry for me. Its a little pricey. UrUrban Decay Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip Topcoat

Review for: Litter more...
Really disappointed in this product. Going to start outnsith the application brush being far too small! It’s like an eyeliner brush, long and thin, making it extremely difficult to coat your entire mouth. It dries very tacky, by the time I was done covering my lip it was all uneven and messed up because I was trying to apply a wet coat and it was messing up an area that was already drying. It left my lips feeling very unpleasant and tacky-like, also cause the lipstick itself to roll up into balls on my lips. I tried with multiple different types and brands of lipstick and got the same result each time. I also didn’t enjoy that no matter what type of lipstick I used, some of it transfered onto the brush. By the time I was officially done trying with this product the brush itself was Ann colored and some of it mixed into the tube of product.

This product I got specifically for one outfit I like to wear that has a very dark purple theme to it. None of the purple lipsticks or lip glosses I had tried would last for more than a couple hours. I use this Vice Special effects lip gloss as a top coat of another purple lip stick I used and it has made all the difference in the world it looks amazing as well the shade I use I believe is Regulator.
