Urban Decay Ritual Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat ($18.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, blackened navy blue with silver and blue sparkle. It was terrible over bare lips, as it was clear just how patchy and uneven the application was. This shade would work best over deeper, vampier shades, where the base color would help camouflage the patchiness. The consistency was thin, watery, and cooling (and tingling) when applied to bare lips with less noticeable tingling when applied over another lip product. On its own, the product lasted for three hours on me but was slightly drying. When I tried layering it over a berry-hued shade, it created "cracks" when I smiled and made the finished result lightly tacky. The color absorbed a lot of the unevenness, but I think the texture was too thick to showcase the shimmer/sparkle effect.
