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 colour from beautiful to beyond.

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

Instantly morph your favourite colours 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 lip colour that never feels sticky. Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat not only lasts, but also creates a water-resistant barrier that seals in the colour underneath and prevents it from moving around on your lips.

Urban Decay’s 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 moisturising 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!

Available in 12 Shades:

RITUAL – smoky blue-gray w/iridescent 3-D sparkle
REVERB – purple w/shifty pink-gold sparkle
MONARCHY – bright purple sparkle
CIRCUIT – smoky green w/iridescent sparkle
SEETHER – metallic red
BRUJA – berry w/gold pearl
LITTER – iridescent glitter
REGULATE – medium purple glitter
COPYCAT – bright pink w/iridescent glitter
3RD DEGREE – golden glitter
FEVER – pink-red w/green 3-D sparkle and shift
WHITE LIE - iridescent white w/blue-violet shift


4.7 ml / 0.16 fl oz

Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip Topcoat is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 161.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!!!! I received a sample from Urban Decay and thought, 'I would never use this'. And tossed it in my makeup case. A week later, I was looking through my makeup case, found it and thought, 'Well, it doesn't hurt to try it'. Now, I own 3 of the colors and am contemplating more. I used Seether over the Vice lipstick color EZ and it looked like the Ruby Slippers from the Wizard of Oz. lol I received so many complements on the color. It's very awesome how you can mix the Special Effects with any color of lipstick as well. This was an unexpected love and now a necessity! It also helped my lipstick last twice as long than it does without a top coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White lie is no lie! :D I've been on a holographic/glitter binge lately so my friend sent me the link to this product as soon as it came out. I wear a lot of crazy colored lipsticks so I picked white lie since I figured it'd be the easiest to use with multiple colors. It's FANTASTIC! The wand itself kind of sucks but the product is easily dispersed with your finger so it's no big deal if you don't mind glitter on your hands. The product tingles a bit when you put it on but goes away quickly. I tried applying it on early in the morning and it lasted me all day with minimal product being worn off. No glitter transfer either! I absolutely love it and how it completely changes the color of your base lipstick. I definitely want to buy more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I got this in Ritual, and it is the most beautiful peacock, metallic, holographic color. I wore it over Double Crossed liquid lipstick and it turned out sort of like oil on water or a beetle shell color. It was simply gorgeous. I got compliments all around, from men and women alike. I plan to try a few more of the colors. I love how easy it goes on. I only wish the brush was more like a lip brush. The brush shape is good for fine lines or more precise application versus painting a full lip. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pretty I love these vice special effects colors! I ordered 4 of them to start and they look beautiful over my vice or nocturnal lipsticks. Admittedly they don't look as intense on me as they do in the stock photos/advertising photos but that may be because I didn't put it on heavy. I found lightly painting & lining my lips with it adds an extra pop of shimmer & sparkle. I am impressed with the staying power as well. These stay on very well and they don't feel sticky or gross. They don't leave a gritty feeling on my lips. It doesn't dry out either. These are fabulous. I look forward to trying the other colors. I may be 35 years young but I don't feel that should restrict me to being boring with my makeup. These definitely give the extra pop I like to have with my look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lip glitter! I only had fair to middling expectations for this, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I love it. (I bought the shade white lie) I was worried that it might be gummy, but I didn't get that at all. Once it dried down, it was totally smooth. And removal was very easy- just wiping with a wet tissue got my lips almost completely clean. So it's definitely not as permanent as a liquid lipstick, but I'd rather have the ease of removal than have to struggle with glitter on my face. This is a great product, and I'm going to try other shades. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely awesome product This is a Long lasting beautiful topcoat lipstick. It dries completely, comfortable to wear. You won't even know is there. It is a magical product . It surprises you when you apply it to different products. Transfer free. I really love it. I got white lies, fever, litter, copycat, seether. The only thing I didn't like was the brush, is too thin. A must have product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! I kinda have mixed feelings about this product. On the plus side, the colors are very beautiful! I received a sample of a purple, red/orange, and white shade and they’re all nice and very glittery. I didn’t expect it to tingle on my lips when I put it on, so I’m guessing it’s a plumper? On the negative side, the brush on the product itself is very thin and makes it kinda hard to apply. It’s kinda similar to just a lip gloss but not as sticky and adds glitter without the same heaviness lip gloss has, but look wise you could probably opt for lip gloss to receive a similar look.!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it... I really needed this product for a project and I wanted to love it in the worst way it turned out not to have a smooth glide it has to be painted on almost like nail polish or eyeliner, so it's much is the lipstick underneath if hits used alone it tends to clump and it's hard to get an even finish. I think I might have liked The other cover better this one has the chunks of glitter maybe the iridescent would've been a smooth their product? I am pretty disappointed I am not sure how to use it it will probably dry up pretty quickly too I'm sort of sad about that because it wanted to be really pretty, and I would've loved to of kept it in my kit as a go to perfect product
