Five Shimmery Shades from Urban Decay

Now, part two of new Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss ($19.00 for oz.)! This post features the shades: Midnight CowboyNaked (pink nude with pink shift), Runaway (shimmering deep coral), Jilted (hot pink with blue shift), and Perversion (sheer sparkling obsidian). (shimmering beige),

  • Midnight Cowboy is a sheer, pale champagne-shimmered gloss. It really has no color, but it adds some shimmer to lips.
  • Naked is a lightened peach-pink base with nearly iridescent pink micro-shimmer. The shimmer in this gloss felt smaller than Midnight Cowboy, and it has more of a reflective quality to it. This seems to be a your-lips-but-better kind of gloss–not a ton of color, some shimmer.
  • Runaway is a semi-sheer, light coral with white shimmer. The shimmer here is average in size and like Midnight Cowboy’s. This one delivered more color on lips as well.
  • Jilted is a semi-sheer fuchsia-pink with iridescent fuchsia-purple shimmer and a very glossy finish. It’s like a jelly pink base with pretty shimmer in it. It added more pink to my lips, but it’s a very wearable shade–don’t let the tube fool you.
  • Perversion is a blackened plum with almost silver shimmer. Like most dark glosses, it does settle into lip lines and may bleed on those who find themselves prone to bleeding lip color (I didn’t experience it myself). The color is semi-opaque, but it’s not an opaque black gloss at all, so never fear the way a product looks in the tube–at least not until you swatch it. Oh, and this will make your teeth look a little yellow.

Make sure you’ve read part one to get a full review of the formula and all that jazz!

  • Product: 25/30
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: This is a solid gloss, but I don’t think it’s necessarily groundbreaking, you know? It’s another good lip gloss that’s non-sticky, smells nice (much better than the creme brulee scent typical to Urban Decay lip products), and feels lovely on the lips.

i loved the runaway swatch but once i saw it on your lips…………. i was expecting more from it, imagine how beautiful it would be if it was opaque.

Oh I’m sad Midnight Cowboy isn’t very pigmented. Thanks for the swatches though! You know, I started wanting swatches for these like a few hours ago and then you posted them!! So weird. My wait was shorter than a wait in the doctor’s office. Thanks!

They smell/taste nothing like the Pocket Rocket glosses or the lipsticks — definitely a very minty scent, but the taste just seems sweet to me. Not a bad sweet, but I couldn’t distinguish it as anything in particular.

I kinda expected Naked to have more color, but it honestly doesn’t look like you even have it on. I think I might go with one of the less shimmery ones from your other review.

I’m excited that UD is coming out with minty glosses. I didn’t even realize that they were aiming for “Creme Brulée” until recently – to me their glosses have always smelled and tasted exactly like Buttered Popcorn Jelly Bellies (yuck). Wish they were a little more opaque, but I might have to pick up a couple of them anyway 🙂

Wow! The black looks surprisingly wearable!!! I really wanted to see it swatched the most, and on you, it looks good! I like it! I want to see what it’ll do to other lipsticks!

I think I like some of these! I definitely don’t need more lipgloss, but I’d consider these. I don’t really want to walk around with naked man lipgloss in my purse, so I’m loving these already!

Meh. I was pretty excited for these till you mentioned their mintyness. I know that people have a love or hate for the Pocket Rockets’ “creme brulee” scent, but I really love it. It smells like pancake syrup to me, haha. So I think I’ll stick with those.

Thanks for putting up all of these pictures and reviews. It was so helpful when deciding which one to get. I decided on Naked, which I love! Very good fall color for fair-skinned women!
