If you haven’t yet perused UD’s latest wares, well, what are ya waitin’ for, boo? The collection’s a doozy, and it introduces a handful of new products to the line — products like the Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints ($24 each; LOVE THESE!), Greed Eyeshadow Primer ($18), the 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils ($20) and the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil 15-Year Anniversary Set ($92).
That reminds me — Jess had a question about Uzi, one of the shimmery liners in the Anniversary Set.
“I was lusting over the swatches you showed of the Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Set and was wondering if there was any significant difference between, say, Uzi and Gunmetal?
I already have several of the colors in the set and am trying to figure out if the new colors are really different or not.”

Funny you should ask, Jess, because I happen to have both shimmery grays close at hand. I’ve been going through a may-jah gray liner phase lately.
Uzi looks a little like Gunmetal to me, but I wouldn’t say it’s a perfect match. I think it’s darker and more taupe, whereas Gunmetal’s more of a classic silver.

Hardcore Urban Decay collectors and others willing/able to appreciate the subtle differences between the two colors may want to spring for both, but, if you already have a solid silver liner, you’re probably already good.
Ladies, have you ever gone through a gray/silver liner phase (I can’t be the only one).
Whew! What a rough week. Too much Top Chef on the laptop in bed. My sleep patterns are all out of whack.
What are you up to this weekend? I plan to spend some quality time with those removable sticky labels and a Sharpie (organizing my office). Exciting, I know!
