Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water- Resistant Lip Topcoat “White Lie” Review

Screen Shot 2017-06-09 at 8.29.20 PM.png

Hello lovies! Happy Saturday, I have been wanting to switch up my posting days, since I don’t really have a strict schedule, I would love to know your thoughts on this, and what you think, I won’t be changing the time that I post them, because I feel like 8 AM PST is a good time for everyone, but who knows, please let me know what you all think, I would appreciate some constructive feedback. Thank you! Okay, let’s get right to the blog post today. As you can already guess, this has been sitting on my “to do” list for a while now. I actually bought it right when it launched. I was super excited about it, because as a lot of you know, I am seriously obsessed with anything translucent, iridescent, shiny, opal like, oh you know, all the pretty things, lol! I thought this was such a cool product, new, innovative, and I had to have it! I at least had to have 1 of the 12 shades, and this shade was the only one that I wanted, funny, I would like a few more, but I knew this one was for me. It is absolutely beautiful!! I mean, just for the glitter alone, the colors, and the effect that it provides is so worth it! The lip topcoats retail for $18, and are available where Urban Decay is sold. I purchased mine at Macy’s! I think the retail price is pretty reasonable for the amount of product you get. I feel like because this is a top coat, that it will last for a long time, because with this product, you don’t need much, and a little goes a long way! By applying this top coat, it completely transforms any lip color, or lipstick, and makes it look totally different, I really think it’s such a fun, and innovative new product! I have seen topcoats before, but this is definitely more glittery, and really changes the look! This is perfect for a night out, from going from a day to night look, and just so fun! IT is shade shifting, and gives a duo chrome effect on the lips, without being over drying, it dries down, and melts perfectly into the lip color that it coats. I do have a complaint though, I don’t like the applicator brush, it makes the product clump together, and get chunky, which does goes away once it is applied to the lips, but it could’ve been more thought out, and designed better, I do however love the packaging, and the product is great, I know other’s haven’t enjoyed it, but I do like it, and think it does exactly what it was intended to do, which is transform your lips, and give a completely different look to them, while maintaining moisture, and smoothness. I think you should give it a try, I think you will love it as much as I do! I always love Urban Decay products, and some of them are my absolute favorite!! Thank you for reading! 

What it is:
A top coat that transforms any lip color for a completely customized look.

What it does:
Go from all-business to a party look in one swipe with Urban Decay’s Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip Topcoat. It transforms any lip color from beautiful to beyond. Apply this shade-shifting topcoat over cream, metallized and matte shades of UD’s Vice Lipstick or any Vice Liquid Lipstick to create a completely customized look.

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, Urban Decay’s innovative, comfortable, gel-cream formula dries down quickly for 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, Urban Decay 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, deliver moisturizing and skin-smoothing properties.

Hello lovies, and welcome to the blog today!! I hope you are all doing well, and happy for a new start to your week!! Happy Monday, oh Monday’s I tell ya, are never any fun, especially after a holiday weekend, who’s with me on that?? 🙂 I have a fun, bright, excited eyeshadow for you today, it’s the afterdark palette from Urban Decay! My gosh, it was a must have for me, I HAD to have it, even though I own some of the colors individually, lol, I love these bold jewel tones, they were right up my alley!! The packaging also drew me, it is STUNNING!! I am a package junkie for sure, especially when it’s holographic, or iridescent! I seriously can’t help myself! I knew this was more of a collectors piece then practical, but that’s okay, a reason why I love it! I was able to find this in store at Sephora inside JCPenny, I feel like my local store has a lot of sold out, or almost sold out items for some reason or another, so that’s awesome, I guess I just got lucky! Let me tell you, I am glad that I got it, the colors, and pigmentation are beautiful, as you can see in the swatches! My favorite color in the palette is LOUNGE, which I already own the full size individual of, so now I just have a back up! It is so versatile, and can be used alone, as a topper, or blended with other colors, to give a sultry look. Every shade in this palette, the formula is exactly what is expected of urban decay, highly pigmented, rich in pigment, smooth, buttery, and very easily blendable! Urban decay eyeshadows are my favorite, they have been for years, I have a lot of their eyeshadows, both palettes, and individuals, and can’t get enough for my collection. They are simply the best! The consistency of the quality of their shadows is unsurpassed!! I definitely think that if you can get your hands on this, you should give it a try. Try looking inside sephora JCPenny stores. This is also sold on the urban decay website, Buy @UrbanDecay Here I’m not sure if it will be back in stock elsewhere. Get it while you can, you won’t be disappointed!! 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
With late-night rendezvous in mind, we created the Afterdark Palette, the perfect shadow collection for night owls. This jewel-toned collection contains 10 sultry shades of Eyeshadow—seven NEW and three cult favorites no UD junkie should be without.

Amp up your look with shade-shifting duotones and metallized shimmers in a range of hues. From iconic UD colors to new shades, this palette has it all.

Once the sun goes down, anything goes. That’s the inspiration behind our Afterdark Palette. It’s got everything you need to create a range of after-hours-inspired looks.

Housed in an iridescent metallic purple case, this palette makes the perfect late-night accessory, equipped with a full-size mirror and a double-ended brush. Line, blend and smudge with the compact precision brush, and use the small eyeshadow brush to apply color all over the lid or in the crease.

Hi there lovies!! Welcome to the blog today, maybe you are new here, or a long time follower, regardless hello, and welcome, I hope you visit often, and enjoy my blog! Today I am posting a brand new product that has just came out, okay maybe it’s not even out yet, but it is to me so far (I am a VIB Rouge) at Sephora, so I was able to purchase it online, yeah!! Let me introduce to you the newest product from one of my favorite beauty brands Becca!! Becca as you may know has the best highlighters hands down in my opinion. I saw some sneak peek pictures of this on Trendmood1’s instagram, and omg did I get so excited? I am obsessed with anything purple, or pink, and holographic. I knew this would be mine, lol!! I couldn’t contain my excitement, as soon as I saw that it was available to purchase for me, I jumped on it!! I was literally living for this highlighter from Becca!! The highlighter is $38, and available at Sephora.

I just got it in the mail yesterday, opened my package, and it is absolutely gorgeous, for real gorgeous, almost to beautiful to touch, but I will for you guys maybe, lol! The packaging outer box is completely holographic, my eyes were instantly in love!! I opened the box, and found this beautiful, shiny silver, and light purple packaging, Becca’s packaging reminds me of space saucers, anyone else? 🙂 This is a pressed highlighter with the special edition packaging, much like the rose gold edition highlighter, and has the same diamond, criss cross pattern, on the powder itself, like an imprint, I wish they would have done something different though, just to switch it up a little, and make this one different, but that’s okay. What a beautiful, highly pigmented highlighter, I knew that it was perfect for me, and my skin tone, but I do have to be real here, did I really think I would use it? Would it just sit in my makeup collection? Well, the answers to those questions are I don’t know, but I hope I will use, and love it!! It’s so different, it totally reminds me of the new alchemist palette by Kat Von D, which I love, but don’t use much unfortunately. Hopefully on my feeling bold days, I will use them both! I am really glad that I purchased this, you can purchase it HERE @Sephora  as well, and as soon as it becomes available to everyone, and in stores, definitely recommend it. It is exactly like other pressed highlighters that I have tried, and own from Becca, very light in touch, and application, highly pigmented, buttery soft, and buildable. I love Becca powders, and products in general. They are always superb quality, and last a very long time! The colors are suitable for most skin tones as well. I recommend this one, if your looking for the colored highlighter look, it’s the perfect shade of purple, just for a pop of color on your cheek bones. I can’t wait to experiment with it more!! 🙂

What it is:
A creamy, highlighting powder with duo-chrome pigments to impart a captivating light effect that transforms as you move.

What it does:
Achieve a sophisticated, prismatic glow in any light with this limited-edition Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter. It’s enriched with color-shifting pigments that reflect and refract light for a multi-faceted, holographic chameleon effect. Prismatic Amethyst is infused with pale gold, violet, and rose pearls to create a unique, iridescent sheen that shifts as you move.

Unlike traditional pressed powders, this one-of-a-kind formula blends pigments with liquids, to create an unparalleled, creamy feel that applies like seamless silk and never cakes. It’s perfect for highlighting or layering to create a truly unique glow. The result is a high-shine, elegant shimmer finish that doesn’t look glittery.

I am so glad that I subscribed! I love, and really appreciate the huge variety of brands, and items that come in the box every month. My favorite product this month that I received is the product by estee edit. I have been really wanting to try more from this brand, because I keep hearing positive, and amazing things about the new line at sephora.
