Honey, I Got Swatches: Urban Decay Lip Love Honey-Infused Lip Therapy Swatches

Published in: Makeup

Remind me why I didn’t doze off watching Thor last night with El Hub. Oh, yeah… The abs. πŸ™‚ Thank you, Chris Hemsworth, for all of the sit-ups you do. A grateful blogger salutes you!


And how are you doing, young lady? Did your Friday get off to a good start (I hope so)? Mine started off great, then took a minor detour. I’ll explain more in a minute, but for now, I have kisses! Honey-infused kisses from the Urban Decay Lip Love Honey-Infused Lip Therapy glosses ($16 each). Here are swatches of all five shades. They’re available now at Sephora stores and also online.

Have you given any of these a try? If you have, what did you think? I’m really diggin’ Lolita (of course, I would like the scandalous one, LOL!).

So that detour I mentioned? It happened in the shower about an hour ago. I’d just turned on the water and was about to get in when there was a loud wall-shaking thud (never a good sign)! Suddenly, no more water. Just a steady drip, drip, drip…

Since my plumbing skills only extend as far as I can scratch my head, I thought it best to call a plumber. He should be here soon. In the meantime, I’ll just keep playing with makeup (it’s what I do best). πŸ™‚

    I have no love for lip gloss, but the important thing here is: your hair is SO cute, Karen! πŸ˜€

    Lolita and Taunt are lovely, and all of the colors look beautiful on you. I wish I could get more into lip gloss; maybe these will help change my mind on it πŸ™‚

    I’m sorry to hear about the plumbing issues – I hope it gets fixed soon!

    I agree with larie about your hair, it looks so great!

    I agree with the ladies above. I buy all these lip glosses, but I never wear them! My favorite is Smashbox, whichever one only has like 6 shades in the line and they stay on for HOURS. Yeah, those ones πŸ™‚ Im totally looking into the MAC Sheen Supreme lipsticks. I know you said they take all the moisture out of your lips… Have you tried them again? Is it still the same outcome?

    Maybe the movie was lacking in frogs… Frog Thor in particular. πŸ˜‰ Sorry, ever since I found out there’s a Frog Thor, I can’t help but laugh about it & I bring it up every chance I get. Got to rock my geek girlieness sometimes. πŸ˜€


    Yes, I got the Pet Avengers comic series, because I love Lockjaw & Lockheed, but the series was pretty lame. Now if UD came out with a comic book… that would be interesting. I see future tie ins.

    As for the UD honey glosses, I’m really liking Failbait, but I wish it was a tad more pigmented. It’s easy to sheer down a more pigmented gloss than get more color to show from a sheerer one, so I think they’re more versatile.

    the nammeeesss — so lovely!

    so far, im loving lolita and stung! πŸ™‚

  9. Joanna says:

    I hate lip glosses because they’re so sticky! I’m all for lipstains now. By the way, I love your hair!

  10. jenny says:

    How do they taste? Although I loved UD’s glosses named after men, I never purchased one bc I wasn’t a fan of the taste. Lolita is gorgeous! It remind me of my Clinique “cabana crush”. I put a tiny bit of cabana crush over my nymphette when I want just a hint more pink!

  11. Jessi says:

    I had to look up what Failbait meant. Thank you Urban Dictionary. I’m just relieved they didn’t name the lipgloss jailbait, although Lolita is a similar concept, haha. and Karen, your hair looks fab!

    They look super fun! I’ll have to give them a go… Lolita and Failbait look like colors I would love :)!

  13. Tiffany says:

    Ooh these look nice! But I seriously need to stop by lipglosses, lol. I have enough for an army. I hope your water is working again soon! Maybe that’s some Friday the 13th luck?

    Lolita is very pretty!

    I have a lot of sheer glosses and I’m not sure if I need these but I’ve always liked UD’s stuff. I’m going to see Thor tomorrow with the BF and it doesn’t hurt to have eye candy for the girls. but I’m still sort of a geek and would’ve watched it whether the guy was hot or not. I watched “Green Hornet” not for Seth Rogen’s dashing good looks.

  16. Inday says:

    Hopefully the shower situation isn’t too dire Karen! As for the glosses, they look so lovely in the tubes, but almost no color on the lips. I’ll stick with VS for sheer glosses like this, they’re half the price of UD.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Inday,

      It turned out to not be a big deal, thank goodness. I just need to replace the shower head. πŸ™‚

      Which of the VS sheer glosses are your faves?

      • Inday says:

        It SO makes my day when I reread posts I’ve commented on and see that you’ve replied, thank you Karen!

        The Beauty Rush gloss in Strawberry Fizz is one of the few glosses I’ve ever purchased multiple times – a lovely sheer pink with subtle glitter & shine shine shine but not too sticky.

        Hope you & El Hub are having a great time in Canada!

  17. a pass for me, since they’re a bit sheer for my taste. it’s a shame, coz i was really into failbait and lolita (oh, these names >.<)…

  18. Kate Williamson says:

    I love the look of Lolita. I think it may be a good replacement for my much loved and long ago discontinued Red Currant DiorKiss.

  19. Stacie R. says:

    Ah yes, the abs. And the chest, and the arms… drool! Ahem. Right, glosses. I think I’ll pass on these, as they’re a bit too sheer. Maybe it’s my monitor, but I can’t really tell much of a difference between the shades on your lips.

    • Karen says:

      LOL! Yeah, it was a little hard to concentrate during certain, um, shirtless parts of the movie.

      As for the glosses, most of them offer just a hint of color. You could always bump up the pigment by layering a lip liner underneath (it should also up the staying power, too)!

  20. Lorraine ER says:

    Those highlights? They rock!!! The placement, the shade, all wonderful and so flattering. I love the styling too- the flippy layers that look like 70’s made modern look awesome on you!

      I have my stylist (aka miracle worker), Alis, to thank, LOL! If you’re in the Bay Area and need a rec let me know — Alis will do you right.

  21. Chelsey says:

    Ahh, I’m really dying to try these. I just can’t comprehend the price tag. $16 is pretty steep when these look pretty comparable to Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush glosses.

    Hair looks so cute. Love gloss, and would try. Into Fresh Sugar lipgloss, sugar kiss, also like sugar daddy. Good color, but don’t last too long they work best over a nude lipstick like Dior Addict Lunar Brown.
