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.

  • "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: 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.

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!

This is a great topper but I wouldn't recommend buying this with expectations of it being a stand alone liquid lip. I like the toppers because you can use them with literally any other kind or brand of lipstick. This is great for adding that sparkle or tint to a lipstick you want to jazz up for a new look. I really enjoyed using these around the holidays as it gave me the option to make some of my less fancy lipsticks a little more perfect for the holidays.

Review for: Fever more...
I am a huge Urban Decay fan but this product is an overall bust in this particular color. The brush is not the best quality and the glitter affect of the product gives me a vibe of Libby Lu stores for little girls. I got this product in a full size in the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lips and I was super disappointed. I think this would be great for a small top coat for anyone who goes with bold lip looks with added affects as a top coat.

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

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.

Review for: Reverb more...
I bought the urban decay reverb specially effects lip. I thought I would love it but it didn't really work out that way. The color is very pretty and it sparkles, but it was very creasy and didn't really go on the way I expected it to. I am going to try again and keep working with it because I don't want to use it once and call it a bad product if other people have had great experiences, which is why I gave three stars.

Not a good product at all. There are better options at the drug store for a LOT less $$. The iridescent white color that I purchased was patchy upon first application. Once you get the product to actually cover the lips you will find that it also dries your lips out for days. Hard PASS. Sorry UD, I love their products but this formula/product felt rushed and not up to their typical high standard.

Well I guess this product does do what it states but I couldn't get past the gritty feeling of the glitter on my lips. Literally felt like I put sand on my lips. I also didn't feel as if the different finishes on these products were very 'wearable'. More so something you'd throw on for a glammed up Instagram post. I won't find myself reaching for this product again.
