I think I’m going to send a resume to Urban Decay…
I would love to get a job there. They cook up some of the wackiest off-beat products in the biz. Take, for instance, the new Pocket Rocket Lipgosses ($19).
There are eight glosses in the set, and each one has a hologram hottie in the cap. Each hottie has a different guy’s name, and if you tilt the gloss from side to side, its hottie transforms from fully clothed to undies only.
I think that’s just the coolest thing ever.
And there’s more to the illusion than a simple hologram. Urban Decay says the tubes, which are flat to fit comfortably in your pocket, contain pheromones to “enhance mood and sexual attraction.” Rubbing them releases the pheromones into the air where, like a good Marvin Gaye song, they help to get the party started.
I even like the little slogans UD gave to each of the tubes. First, there’s Jesse: “Jesse owns a dingy cave of a bar on the Sunset Strip, pouring whiskey and cheap beer for rock royalty. Undress him to see where his tattoos end and your one-night stand begins.”
Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in Kirk
No doubt, what sets these apart is the packaging, but the gloss itself isn’t bad. I have two of the colors — James and Kirk (how Star Trek!). James is a sheer, shimmery bluish pink; Kirk’s a sheer, creamy nude.
Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in James
The texture is thin, non-sticky, and the glosses have a strong brown sugar flavor and scent.

It may just be my strange sense of humor, but don’t these have Mother’s Day written all over ’em?
