Urban Decay Reverb is a slightly cool-toned, medium-dark purple with a glitter finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
Urban Decay Reverb Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat ($18.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, neutral-to-cool purple with silver and purple flecks of shimmer and sparkle. I found this shade harder to apply on its own, as there was enough finer shimmer to create more of medium-coverage, metallic sheen, but it did not go on evenly due to the terrible applicator--but it dried so quickly that it was hard to apply it evenly with fingertips or a brush as well. It worked best patted over a lipstick, and this one taught me not to layer the topcoats with anything with slight to moderate slip (Urban Decay did suggest layering over a Metallized shade, which I did, and it was a total fail). It was better over something darker and more satin-to-matte in finish. On its own, it lasted for two and a half hours but was drying.
