Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss


RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $19

THE SKINNY: Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss brings out the bad girl in all of us.

A hot lip gloss in a variety of shades with a tiny (but super hot) guy on the tube. Tilt the tube and that guy is down to his undies. I would almost blush at the thought of someone finding this in my bag if the product did not make me smile so much.

Aside from it's unique packaging Urban Decay has another winner with this lip gloss. (I tried “Doug” -- a classic shimmery pink shade.) I love the color and look of this gloss. It went on smooth, but just sticky enough to hold and the shimmer was perfect without being too much.

Online reviewers have complained about the scent. This gloss comes with an almost crème brulee fragrance. I did not mind it at all, other than it made me crave some desert.

KEEP OR TOSS: I think $19 is a little pricey for lip gloss but sales make it a buy – “Jesse,” a berry, plum shade is on sale for $5 on Urban Decay's website.

CHECK IT OUT: Buy this gloss at beauty retailers or direct from Urban Decay. The company also offers an ingredient list for each shade and customer reviews.
