Chances are you are already well acquainted with formula and wear of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils so I’ll spare you the redundancy. This is the UD Smoked set ($38) that comes with 6 travel-sized pencils that offer “deep, dynamic jewel tones, shimmering pewters, and chocolate neutrals”, in addition to the go-to for smokey eyes, black.
Urban Decay’s Lip Love Honey Infused Lip Therapy isn’t a new product at all, but when I recently picked up a new one on sale I thought it might be a good idea to do a review on them.
Lip Love is a line of tinted lip balms…or gloss. It’s not quite as thick as traditional balms because it is not a solid, but it’s a bit thicker than some glosses. UD officially calls them a lip therapy. This is perhaps due to the ingredients used and the affects they are said to have. According to the product description on the UD website:
Its healing powers come courtesy of a few ingredients that are rejuvenating heavy hitters. Antioxidant Vitamin C boosts collagen and evens out skin tone. Millet, Jojoba and Apricot Kernel Seed Oils work together as a powerful lip-healing trifecta to moisturize, replenish and promote cell turnover. Continue reading

If you aren’t already aware of this recently released palette, read the breakdown Urban Decay: The Vice Palette.
First things first, let’s talk about the packaging. UD fans that haven’t been exactly thrilled with past palette collections may be a bit more happy with this one. The Vice palette packaging is a soft touch (think smooth and satin feel), plastic casing with a “UD” clear jeweled logo on the lid. What may really be the more thrilling part is the opening mechanism. Instead of having a magnetic closure or a pry open/pull apart system, The Vice has a push button on the bottom half of the case . With just a simple push the palette pops open and then proceeds to open all the way on it’s on. Well, it doesn’t open flat thankfully. It opens with the top portion stopping at an angle. This is great because a full sized mirror is located in the top portion of the lid, so you don’t have to worry about trying to prop the lid against something if you want to go for hands free use. There is also a slot inside for the included Good Karma brush, which is not a new feature but something worth mentioning. The shadows are placed in groups of 4 (going down) with 5 shadows in each row (going across). As mentioned, there is a full-sized mirror that takes up the entire top portion of the lid with exception of a thin area were the closure is located. Overall, the packaging feels very sturdy. It is not as thin as a MAC palette or BH Cosmetics palette would be, but it is not extremely chunky.
For all you UD fanatics out there it’s time to get ready for a new Fall palette being released: The Vice Palette. Just a little quick info about it:
After a little snafu in the delivery process I finally received my original UD Haul order. As a disclaimer, I would like to point out that I purchased all products on my own, but I am a member of the UD Pro Discount Program.
My haul included 10 of the Vintage shadows (some of which are going to be discontinued) and a backup Perversion 24/7 liner pencil (not pictured). As most of you already know, these are considered “vintage” because UD released their reformulated eye shadows this year that also had packaging changes. All of these I purchased in this haul were UD colors I had my eye on but never broke down to buy until the clearance sale began. So far, my favorite color is Lounge…which unfortunately is one of the discontinued shades.
Take a closer look at the shadows and color swatches!
