Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss
This spring, Urban Decay Rule34 Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss ($20.00 for TBA fl. oz.) launches as the newest (but permanent) gloss formula as part of the Naked range. It’s a sheer, hydrating, creamy gloss that feels fairly lightweight. The consistency is somewhere between gel, cream, and lip balm (the kinds found in tubes, not the stick variety). They’re very comfortable to wear and last between three and four hours on me (about average). I didn’t notice any taste, but they are scented with sweet mint (like the Lip Junkies). Shades like Lovechild and Streak don’t apply as evenly as I’d like, but shades like Beso, Naked, and Freestyle are great options for anyone who likes sheer lipgloss. (If you aren’t into sheer lipgloss, consider the Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color range instead.) But as a result of the sheer quality of the glosses, they tend to look more alike once applied than they do in the tubes, as the image above illustrates, so you probably don’t need every single shade! There are subtle differences, and the biggest difference is often shimmer versus no-shimmer.
