Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat

Why hello there and happy first day of spring! Sorry it’s been a bit quiet over here the last couple of weeks. I’ve been doing some personal stuff and haven’t been able to get to blogging. But am back at it now!

Today I’ve got the Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat for you. There are twelve shades in this collection, in both a glitter and metallic formula. Most of these are shade-shifter glitters with a slight tingly feel to them. It goes away pretty quickly and is very mild. They seem to have the same thin, kind of dry formula that their new Vice Liquid Lipsticks have, and I wasn’t really a huge fan of those. However considering most people would probably wear these as just a fun topcoat rather than on their own, they are kind of cool looking!

Reverb over Bittersweet Lipstick

Fever over Bang Lipstick

And there you have it! Like I mentioned above, these have a pretty dry, non-moisturizing texture, despite them supposedly having “Marine Filling Spheres” in them which help with moisture. They don’t apply super evenly but since they aren’t really meant to be fully opaque, it’s not that big a deal to me. My favorite ones are White Lie, Litter, Monarchy, Reverb, Ritual and Fever. I have a feeling that UD will be reformulating (or discontinuing) their Vice Liquid Lipsticks and maybe these at some point going forward since they aren’t the best texture.

You can find Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat available this month on their site and at Sephora, Ulta and select Macy’s and they are $18.00 each. I am not sure if these are LE or not, the press release didn’t say.

Are you going to check any of these out?
