Urban Decay is pretty much known for awesome makeup that is outside the box. Gorgeous, intensely pigmented eyeshadows and eyeliners are in the forefront, along with awesome, rocker chic packaging. Awhile back they came out with Stardust Sparkling Lip Glosses, and I bought all three, because, well, I have a sickness.
Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss, per Urban Decay, is ...
Inspired by twinkling stars, our radiant formula wraps lips in sophisticated (never scratchy) sparkle. Lip conditioners and a minty taste up the ante.
Umm, I dunno about captivating a room when you pull out your lip gloss, but they are pretty.

And some lip swatches.
|Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Andromeda|
Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss Andromeda is a gorgeous light pink gloss with multi-colored glitter. Very pretty, makes your lips look very wet but doesn't give much color at all. I had thought this would be my favorite because of the duochrome you see in the tube, but alas, it didn't translate at all to the lips. Kinda meh about it.
|Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Glitter Rock|
Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Glitter Rock is a beautiful light pink lipgloss with light pink glitter. Very pretty and feminine. Adds a touch of pink to your lips and lots of sparkle.
|Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Space Cowboy|
Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Space Cowboy is a gorgeous neutral gloss with a pink duochrome. In the tube, it looks lovely and intense, but it doesn't translate on to the lips much. The gloss itself hardly has any color, and the pink glitter stands out in certain lights and looks out of place. Bah.
Here is a picture of the tube of Andromeda ... Can you see how I was so looking forward to this? I was hoping to get all that pink and gold and bronze and a wee it of purple on my lips. Bah again.
These remind me of the Stardust eye shadows (OMG I get it now!) where they are mainly there for glitter and not much else. Sigh. I wish I had made that connection before just now and saved my money. They're nice, but I was hoping for something more pigmented. I use products like these during the day when I just need something to reapply so my lips don't get dry.
- Lightweight, not heavy or goopy
- Lasts for a few hours before needing to reapply
- Glitter is not gritty at all, very grown up and smooth
- Pretty colors
- Nice smell, and tasty!
No Me Gusta:
- Limited color selection
- Sticky! Bah.
- Glosses are much prettier in the tubes
Verdict: Pretty cool. They'll get used, but they won't be something I reach for specifically or often.
These retail for $19/each and are available where Urban Decay is sold.
