Urban Decay Naked Lipstick

The Spring Season: Urban Decay Naked Lipstick

Urban Decay Naked Lipstick ($22.00) is a beautiful soft rosy pink with a very subtle golden shimmer and glossy sheen. I fell in love with Naked when it debuted last year–it’s such a pretty pink. It’s wearable by itself, with a smoky eye, or for an everyday look. It’s soft and natural without being boring. It has a creamy feel but doesn’t have a lot of slip.

Urban Decay lipsticks have a sweet caramel brulee kind of scent, but I don’t find it lingers (though I like it myself) once you’ve put it on. The packaging is interesting and fun, though not terribly functional–there’s a dagger that comes out on one end and then a flat top (but that’s the place with the label!) on the other end. It’s cute, but I just wish it was more functional. But for a color as pretty as Naked, I can make an exception!

Is this the right pink lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

MAC Riveting Collection

MAC Riveting Collection

U.S. Launch Date: February 18th, 2010

International Launch Date: March 2010

Glossy images of leggy, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall -of-Fame uber-models are as riveting, ravishing – and relevant – as ever. Hot shots of super-babes and rock chicks, edgy but never grungy, the lion’s mane of hair, the spectacular cheek bones, the luscious lashes, and a certain fearlessness when it comes to conquering with colour – Riveting is a rock-steady metal collection that pays homage to the Jerry Halls and Pat Clevelands of the world, their strength and their power! Part of a sexy ’80s fashion moment, these girls are modern versions of the real thing: Rock Goddesses never afraid to strut their stuff and step up to the spotlight. A fashion trend, true, but oh-so-much more is what makes these girls Riveting.
