Urban Decay Spring 2012

Urban DecayWrite on, Urban Decay. ๐Ÿ™‚


I love holding the pencils in your new 13-piece spring 2012 collection over a blank page in my sketchbook and pretending they’re art supplies.

Of course, I don’t actually touch the page with ’em, but I’m soooo tempted…

Coming soon to Sephora stores, Ulta, urbandecay.com and select Macy’s stores, the collection features eight 24/7 Concealer Pencils (with four new shades for darker damsels), three full-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (sold individually) and two new Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colors.

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about the feel of a good pencil in my hands.

Here are swatches and pics! Reviews coming soon.

In other beauty news…

ChloeChloรƒยฉ fragrance fans, here’s some cool news. The line’s launching a new scent for spring called L’Eau de Chloรƒยฉ, arriving mid-February. No word yet on the notes, but from this teaser video, it looks like something fresh and grassy.

Let’s hope it doesn’t make me want to pop a Zyrtec. ๐Ÿ™‚

NARSFellow NARS nixies, the company just posted two more spring tidbits on their Facebook page, hot pink Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil, and the Trio Eyeshadow in Douce France, with a shimmery icy pink, a shimmery rose-petal pink and a deep matte rose.


I’m not sure about the pink on my eyes (might make me look like I’ve been crying), but I’m all over that Lip Pencil!

Benefit CosmeticsAnd in Benefit news, the brand’s introducing a new liquid golden bronze highlighter called Sun Beam ($26) that looks very promising…

Here’s to hoping for sunshine in a bottle. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Cait says:

    Very excited! I love the concealer pencil, but the shade best for me right now is just a bit too pale. It’ll be nice to have more options!

  2. Andryroxy says:

    I was hoping for a full size 24/7 Corrupt :/ DOD looks like my shade ๐Ÿ˜€ thank you always for the swatches.

  3. Tiffany says:

    Those concealer pencils look very interesting and I’m so happy to see Perversion again… I love super black liners. Oh, and Mexican Rose?! I’m all over it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Isabel says:

    Hey Karen, do you know if Perversion and Woodstock are going to be permanent or only available for a limited time?
    On another note, I really like how that NARS lip liner looks! I have one in Dolce Vita and the color, texture, and wear are all really nice.

  5. Melodie says:

    W00t I’ve been waiting for a full-size Perversion for so long! I was really tempted by that anniversary pencil set but couldn’t justify it, since I had so many of the other colors already. I got the Electric travel-size set so I at least have it (and Woodstock!) in a mini, but it’ll be nice not having to worry about conserving it!

    I’ll have to get over to Sephora to try out the concealers as well. I can’t remember why I never liked UD’s, maybe they didn’t have my color before (I am GHOSTLY pale. My boyfriend’s mother says I am the whitest Chinese person she has ever seen), so we’ll see!

  6. Chris25 says:

    I wish to high heaven they would release Perversion as a full sized pencil and make it permanent. Sheesh….

    That NARS trio looks exciting!

  7. blovetbeauty says:

    can’t wait to try out those lip pencils! looks super pigmented

  8. PinkGlitter says:

    Yay for full-size woodstocks and perversions! Can’t wait to pick them up! Lovechild lipcolor is really pretty too.

  9. Let says:

    The Lovechild lipcolor looks really pretty. The NARS trio also looks interesting though I would probably hate the icy pink color.

  10. Lisa T says:

    Looks amazing! Have you heard anything about the dual-ended liners that were announced on Urban Decay’s twitter? Anyway, can’t want to see what else they have in store for us! (literally) lol

  12. TJ says:

    I’m working my way through my 15th anniversary pencils and yet these are calling my name. Smh.

  13. Quinctia says:

    Woooooodstock. I have nothing like that in my stash. Perversion, on the other hand, I can’t justify buying as I rarely use black liner and still have…three Zero pencils? Perhaps it’ll get included in a palette I like. ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Jennifer says:

    I love Demolition, I’m so glad it’s permanent now!

  15. Karen B says:

    I sure do like the look of that NARS lip pencil ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Nina says:

    the NARS Lip Pencils are uber gorgeous! and of course how do I even try to say no to UD 24×7 pencils?

  17. Linda Halpern says:

    Love those colors! but is the staying power good – I hate all my eye makeup gone by noon.

  18. corallista says:

    Apocalypse would make a gorgeous fall lip color! Looking forward to Benefit Sun beam even though I don’t get Benefit in my country ๐Ÿ˜›

    Love the sound of a bronzey highlighter! By the way would dod concealer pencil work for an nc42?

  20. Victoria says:

    Looking forward to seeing Benefit’s Sun Beam as I adore their other liquid highlighters and tints!
