Dear UD Scorch,
‘Sup, boo? I’ve been missing you. We haven’t talked in a while (six months, give or take, but who’s counting?).
I just wanted to holla and ask, “How are you?” How’s my smokin’-hot, shimmery bronze liner love? Still the picture of pure perfection in a pencil?
Remember how we always loved to play in spring and summer? Whenever I’d bust out my beach bag and slip on my booty shorts (might as well work it while you can, right?), you were always right there for me, ready to help with the bronze and gold eye makeup looks I was wearing.
I wonder, are you the same way…?
I bet you are. I bet you’d like me to swipe you along my lash lines, wouldn’t ‘cha? Just us, from the break of dawn till late at night, no fading, no smudging — nothing to break our bond.
I’ve been thinking about you again. A lot. And all of the things I want to do with you…like wearing you as a base for shimmery bronze eyeshadows.
Remember that time I layered you with UD’s Half Baked on top? That was smokin’ hot.
Oh! — or that time I wore you with MAC Woodwinked? Hotter than a five-alarm fire.
The 411 on Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Scorch
What is it? A silky soft $20 long-wearing shimmery bronze pencil liner with silver micro-glitter. Available now at Urban Decay counters and urbandecay.com.
Who might lurve it? Anyone who likes wearing warm bronze and gold shades on their eyes.
When’s a good time to wear it? How ’bout now? Or any time of year, but I think it comes into its own in spring and summer because it looks faboo with a tan.
What else? It’s a great liner alternative to basic brown and black.
How do you rock it? You can wear it as a straight-up eyeliner or as a base for powder shadows. It goes well with coral or hot pink cheeks and lips.
I’ve never dated another pencil liner like you. I, uh, heard through the makeup grapevine that you got into a fight with Costa Riche? Is that true?? I hope it wasn’t about me, but if it was, shoo’ — let ’em trip. What we got is special.
Sending you R. Kelly slow jams, always,

Stuck in Love
I Netflix’d it. That’s the name of it — a movie called Stuck in Love. I watched it a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, but I keep forgetting to tell you.
It’s about a father who’s a novelist (played by Greg Kinnear), his family and how he tries to move on with his life after his wife leaves him for another man. Also starring Jennifer Connelly and Kristen Bell. Funny, sad and sweet, all at the same time. And I feel like the characters are believable, too.
A good one to fire up on ye olde telly if you find yourself chilling on the couch one afternoon with a big bowl of popcorn (which is what I frequently do). If you end up watching it, let me know what you think.
So, how was Tuesday? Good, I hope.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
